Put that wretched buzz out of its misery with this ART hum eliminator. The passive unit employs two quality transformers that stomp out ground loop noise.

"Hum Eliminator simply works and is a great adapter for other connectors. "

We provided lighting and sound for another DJ a few weeks ago. We had a bad hum when we connected their laptop to our system. We worked on the grounding and minimized it but it sill bothered me. We have used our system with many laptops in the past but had never had this problem before. I purchased ART DTI Hum Eliminator. The two channel is great for most applications and I recommend every DJ and sound tech have one or two in their gig bag. I also purchased the 8 channel rack version for our outputs to eliminate potential ground loops with my powered speakers and subs. Great isolation transformer at a very good price for the quality.

"excellent isolating transformer"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The only thing I'd change would be to improve its physical stability. It's tiny footprint means that it overbalances easily, and falls off amps, tables, etc.; I usually just tape it in place.
Sound
How much can one say about an isolating transformer? It works, without introducing noise, and it was very reasonably priced. It cured the ground loop on my Korean Washburn HB-35,
Features
It can handle 3 types of hardware on input and on output, and they can be mixed and matched.
Ease of Use
Duh. Just plug and unplug the jacks. Either turn down the vol when you do, or use an impulse suppressor.
Quality
It's pretty sturdy, although I wouldn't want to test that with a long drop onto concrete or marble.
Value
AT the sale price, great! At the usual price, I'd give it a seven out of ten.

"A product that did exactly what it was supposed to do. It turned a useless audio signal into a mint perfect one that is good eno"

Should work longer than anything in the studio.
Sound
The design is for only removing ground loop type hum, mostly 60 cycle in character. It does that very well. In my case, it did fully correct a problem associated with using an old style tube preamp in a modern cabled up world ! Hum virtually all disappeared. A product that does all it says it is trying to do. Novices need to understand that this unit was never for any other kind of noise.
Features
multiple plug and play
Ease of Use
Insert in line and you are done.
Quality
Parts are everything with this kind of product. And the parts are good.
Value
Once a maker like ART has this being manufactured? It can be done cheaply for them. Price was kept relatively high for their profit.

This is a miracle, should you really be battling groundloop.

"Does the job"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I bought this box as a cheap stereo ground-lifting solution, and it does the job pretty well. It might seem common sense, but using the 1/4inch balanced inputs and non-balanced outputs sometime produces odd results.
