Every installation technician has faced it or soon will - the dreaded humming from the speakers, a telltale sign of a ground loop. Ground loops are caused by voltage potential differences at the ground point on your equipment. Voltages in the range of microvolts up to millivolts or higher can cause ground loops.

The isolation transformer easily connects into your audio/video system and breaks the ground path through cables between components. Start at the component last installed before the ground loop was discovered, and connect the isolation transformer at different ends of the audio/video cable until the ground loop is gone.

C2G 3.5mm Extension Stereo Audio Isolation Transformer - stereo audio isola is rated3.00 out of5 by2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does not work like advertised.I got this as a gift to help get rid of a ground loop I was experiencing between my Laptop audio IN and my tube pre-amp audio interface. I was expecting it to quiet the 60Hz hum, but it didn't even do that. I was also disappointed with the cheap quality construction - thin flimsy plastic shielding and light weight. Looks and feels like something you'd get at an electronics kiosk vendor at the mall. I'm also taken back by how much this thing costs. Not even partially worth it.
