Unplug everything apart from the speakers that is plugged in to the amp and check the wiring of all the connectors. If the buzzing stops when you do so then it is most likely one of the input connectors or cables causing the problem and it is most likely that the shield or earthing wire in one of those cables is aft faulty and needs repairing or replacing. If the buzzing continues try switching the input selector to something else to see if it disappears. If it does then the input channel that causes the buzzing may be faulty and need repairing and if it does not then the amp itself has an issue and will need repairing. In this case it may be a faulty power supply, preamp or main amp module especially if it comes from both or all channels.

Kenmore 80 series washer won't spin just makes a loud buzzing noise.

Possible that the motor is not moving , could be a faulty capacitor to the motor. Also check for the free movement of the agitator, if the shaft is tight then it can cause a drag on the motor.

Hello camillemario,

The problem sounds as if there is a fault on the amplifier.
Pull the 110 volt plug from the power supply that feeds the amplifier.

If the amp is at fault and you are in the USA I would contact Bruce Wentworth for a test/repair to your amplifier.

Constant buzzing in my 15 W amplifier

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.

NAD C370 Amplifier

This sounds like a problem with the protection circuit, and/or the speaker relays. More specifically, a capacitor within those circuits that is not behaving properly. I strongly suggest having it looked at ASAP.

Loud Buzzing Sound

This may be a power supply failure, and or a short in the output stage, and in the drivers for the output stage.

This is not a repair you can do at home unless you have a lot of experience in troubshooting and analysing problems in power amplifier equipment.
