    The Y works fine in that application....the hum isnt from the Y itself ....thats most likely a grounding issue fixed in a number of ways...search on grounding or hum and you will find a lot on the subject.

    I once had a hum from my sub that I fixed by connecting an rca cable from the sub's rce output to an unused audio rca input on my vcr.
