I am experiencing a bit of hum on four channels of my setup, having successfully ironed out the rest of the problems. Part of me wants to know why the hum still persists but the other part of me just wants to throw money at the problem and make it go away.
I have been considering getting a couple of 2-channel transformer hum eliminators like the Behringer Microhd400 or the ART Cleanbox, which look like they could well do the trick.
However, I was wondering whether 4 of these would also do the trick:
Microphone Transformer (XLR-Jack)
My DAW output is balanced XLR and the desk in is unbalanced so in terms of connection it seems fine.
My only question is whether the 500 ohm input would be unsuitable for the line level out of the DAW.
I know I'm only saving a few quid but...
Also, is there likely to be any significant difference in transformer quality and frequency response between the kind of things mentioned above.
Is there any scope for a cheap Behringer unit to destroy my sound here or not?
Thanks for any advice,
