Another great video for troubleshooting noise in a system where conventional tools don't cut it.

Very interesting to see the amps LED's not showing the distortion.

:good:

just sorta proves that no matter what type of technology the new amps are coming out with, knowing what is IN FRONT of the amp is just as important as anything else. Matter of fact it's probably the most important piece of information you should know when setting gains. Hence the other MAIN reason you cannot use a Multimeter (DMM) to set gains (properly). I mean you can use your right toe to set gains, but "properly" is a different story. :)

and that LOC - VERY typical of most cheap LOC's. You would be lucky to get 1 clean volt out of some of the most common ones out there that people use. You wouldn't know that without a DD-1 or expensive scope.

Have nicer LOCs been tested to be clean? I'm running an old 3sixty.2 and I want to believe that it's clean, but anytime you alter your signal like that distortion is likely.
