Thanks alot Scott, I don't really play it that loud, just wondering what it was.
Even if a record isn't playing and I max out my channel volume and have my house output around nine I get this this loud howl.
I'm just interested to know what causes it, have I maxed out all my headroom and this hum is looping and getting louder?
