Question about Audio Players & Recorders
When changing the preset amp models, there is a constant buzz or fuzzy sound with each one and hardly any change between the amp models. They all pretty much sound the same or similar.
Sound like an open ground wire on the output jack. The buzzing is usually due to this ground problem. check all wiring to the output jack.

Testimonial: "Thanks Chris for the quick response. I removed the output jack pcb and re-soldered all the pins in case there was a cold joint but still no change. I did not pull the metal cover off of the output jack housing yet. Maybe I didn't go far enough?"

MAKE sure you have it connected to a three wire circuit that has the ground. A lot of these style amps will buzz if they are left ungrounded.
Also search for sources of buzzing light light dimmers.
Further, power supply electrolytic filter caps are suspect.

Make sure you have a ground prong on your power cord. Most input jacks nowadays are closed circuit. They have a switch built in that won't allow any sound without the cord plugged in. You may have a damaged jack that will give you a loud hiss, a loud hum or crackling depending on what volume your controls are set at.
