    Kef LS50 original (ex-demo) vs. LS50 Meta (new)

    Rega Planar 1 Ground Issue

    Hi guys :) So I have the Planar 1 from Rega. With my speakers turned on I can hear a buzzing sound, and I have figured that it might be because I don't have ground connection. I've spoken with the man from my local Hi-Fi-store and he told me the same thing. The problem is that i really can't...
