Designed for studio, DJ, and live sound applications, the Kopul HMX-2 Humbuster is a dual-channel hum eliminator with both XLR and 1/4" (6.35mm) TRS/TS input and output connectors. Using a fully passive design, without the need for external power, the device can eliminate unwanted 60 Hz hum and buzz caused by ground loops in your signal path.

Housed in a road-worthy rugged metal enclosure, the device can be inserted between any two pieces of line-level equipment at +4 dBu or -10 dBv to quiet hum and buzz caused by excessively long unbalanced cable runs, or when a connection path forms between the grounds of two pieces of equipment in the signal chain. Ground loops are removed while preserving the integrity of the original signal.

The device will automatically convert between balanced and unbalanced signals (and vice versa) when the 1/4" (6.35mm) TRS/TS and XLR connectors are used in any combination. This also allows the Humbuster to be used as a direct box for connecting the unbalanced output signal of a musical instrument directly to the balanced input of a mixing console. The design utilizes high-quality internal components and gold-plated XLR connectors to reduce noise and maintain the fidelity of your signal.

question

This says 60Hz, is there a model that will work in Pal 50Hz countries?
Asked by: Filmview
This is not a powered unit, it's completely passive and only connects to your audio feeds, so the frequency of your AC power is irrelevant. In my opinion the information about this unit should read &quot;eliminates unwanted hum and buzz caused by ground loops&quot;.

question

Is there a version of this device that can eliminate hum generated by a turntable ( Pro-ject turntable connected via 2 heavy duty shielded RCA cables to a Denon AVR-X4200W integrated amp; I have tried a number of possible fixes to no avail). Or could this device be used for this purpose with some adaptation?
Asked by: Anonymous
B&amp;H sells adapters and cables like GPR101 or CPR202 that will let you connect your turntable to the Humbuster to the amp. You may also consider picking up 3-to-2 prong grounding adapters to see if that works. There are some turntables that have inherent hum due to build quality or wiring. I hope you get to enjoy your vinyl again soon!
