Thanks Ozzy, I will give them a call.  Tonight I raised the RR-888 from a height of 5' to 5'9".  Nice improvement.  I feel like I'm really dialing this thing in.  Prior to the RR-888, I thought I had a pretty good soundstage.  Now, it has simply e...

Lynette,Yes, the KingRex PSU is now over $400.  If that's what I have to spend that's ok, but I'm trying to research (with the help of fellow A'gon members) if the less expensive PSU's, for the RR-888, would work just as well.I will try some diffe...

Lowrider57, thanks for your suggestions but I have one question.  How do I find the specs on my RR-888?  I've looked but can't find any info on its specs.  The only specs I can find is on the walwart PSU that came with the unit.  Printed on the wa...

Thanks Ozzy.  Did you notice a significant improvement after adding this PSU?  Also, it appears from looking at the rear of the unit, that there are speaker binding posts rather then the normal 12V female receptacle?  Am I missing something here?

Geoffkait...how do you apply mu metal? Do you wrap cables with it, or use it as a shield under, or around enclosures? Or, just how do you use it, how much do you need to work with?

To All,First thanks for all of your suggestions and comments. This morning, for comparison, after much aggravation, I decided to go back to where I started before this experiment with the Hagerman headamp. I totally removed the headamp from the sy...

Swampwalker & Acman3......Yes, I could try some other interconnects, but this morning, after more aggravation, I decided to take the Hagerman totally out of the the system. I reconfigured my Acoustech phono preamp for MC input (61.5db of gain,...

I really appreciate everyone's comments / suggestions. As I have said in some posts above, I replaced the tubes in my Audible Illusions L3, and that did solve my hiss issue. Now, I'm addressing a low level hum, that I feel is directly attributable...

Atmosphere....Thanks for you info on the Jensen SUT. I will research it.Also, I did replace the two tubes in my Audible Illusions L3 preamp today. No more hiss. Your right, it's not how old they are, its how many hours there are on them. However, ...

Austinbob, my phono preamp is an Acoustech PH-1P is solid state. My preamp is an Audible Illusions L3. It is tubed, but only two. I replaced the tubes today, and that eliminated the hiss! Now I'm just dealing with a low level hum, at high volumes.

Elinor...yes, I have the ground wire from the tt, connected to the phono preamp. I tried running it to the headamp, but that made the hum much worse.
