You have a dedicated line? You too alfa?

Alfa -> my xa100.8 is silent! Complety at 100%? It's not possible! If you go whit your ear at 10-20 cm. From the xa100.8 you dont have any noise?

The trafo make always a little brumm it is mechanical!

Thank you for reply
absolutely silent. Not a sound. I had one dedicated 20 amp line for my mono blocks. Transport and DAC. Xa 100.8 and even my Xa 30.5 were silent.
I now have 3 dedicated 20 amp lines ;one for each mono block and the third for both the transport and DAC. i am very sensitive to hum and hiss or any extraneous noise but i hear nothing from the 100.8. i even kneeled , held my ears close to the amplifier and hear no sound . just completely silent. Hope this helps.
