Annoying noise interference

    I've just set up a newly purchased pair of Technics 1210's and
    Behringer VMX200 mixer. I've connected the mixer to my Sony Hi F
    with a cable measuring about 2.5 metres. My speakers are about 0.5
    1m away from my decks. It all works but there is an annoying level o
    interference. This interference manifests itself in a buzzing soun
    and an occasional electrical crackling sound (it reminds me of th
    sound my cheap electric guitar amp used to make). I expected
    slight sound but nothing like this. Loud music drowns it out bu
    slightly more subdued tunes are ruined by this annoying interference
    There's not much point in having the enhanced quality of a viny
    recording if there's a constant buzz in the background

    Any suggestions? Could there be a fault in my decks? My mixer? Th
    cables? I've seen all these specially insulated cables with gol
    connectors but certain sources have told me that these don't make a
    awful lot of difference

    Gold connectors won't help

    Sounds like a grounding problem - most likely at the lowest level signals

    Specialty cables will indeed make *no* difference.

    I can't imagine what this noise sounds like. Why not post it as a wav file
    on a binaries group ?
