Have you tried unplugging the Receiver from the power outlet and plugging it back in? Is your Receiver a service providers set top box DVR? It sounds like you may be hearing the Hard disk drive spinning on and off. But that's all I can tell from the description. Hope this helps.

My RX-530 Reciever has a humm internally. What is it?

The innards of this device use Direct Current. Your outlets provide Alternating Current. To convert one to the other, we need to first run it through a transformer. Same exact principle as the big can on the power pole next to your house (or the box, if you have underground utilities in the area). A slight hum from the case itself is normal. If it gets loud and annoying, or is being heard through the speakers, then that's a sign of larger problems, and needs to be shut off and looked at by a technician before things get worse.

My Harman Kardon 300B receiver has a humm in the left channel. What should I check first? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Isolate it to a source if possible; make sure none of your cables or speaker wires run by power cords or sources of high magnetic fields. I had hum caused by track lighting.

Hi, I have a Yamaha RX-V596 that all of a sudden developed a hum throughout ALL speakers, it is coming from the receiver. Any idea how to fix it? Thanks, Adam

reconnect all wires (make sure are placed in correctly) and make your connection with wires kind of tight (no druppy wires if extra coil it up) between devices....your receiver should have small wire hanging this is the antenna and the other wire should be grounded...and should take care of the humm....

sounds like you have the polairity reversed on the speakers
and yes it does make a difference
check polairity also make sure unit is well ventelated
you wouldnt use your compouter if it was inside a card board box
so make sure the reciever can breath also
recievers get too hot and they start blowing chips off the board

Acoustimass Subwoofer has a low "hummm" sound when turned on.

Sounds like an inadequate ground wire in the signal cable. You may have to replace the cable between the reciever and bass module. It also, however, may be IN the bass or reciever module.
