    I have a loud buzzing from inside the amp.Comong from the huge round thing.Not the tubes. Doesn't happen every time I play. Does not effect sound at all. Could it be my house wiring? Ground lift doesnt effect it. Thoughts? Amazing amp, I will never part w/ it.

    Sounds like the mains transformer to me.

    It will probably just carry on buzzing. If it's a big round one it will be held together and secured to the amp chassis with a big bolt. You could try tightening the bolt if it's loose or get the transformer changed for a new one that doesn't buzz. The best thing though is to take it to an amp tech just in case it isn't the transformer and something more serious.

    weird. I have a tubepath 10.1 and it also buzzes like mad. Buzzes on every electric outlet I have ever plugged it into. I brought it to an amp tech - dead silent in his shop of course.

    One of power amps blew in mine a few weeks ago. The tech is fixing it now - working with Warwick to get the proper parts (A+ to Warwick customer service from what he tells me). I'm hoping it fixes the buzzing as well.

    It was caused by my outlets,some worse than others. My whole house is bad.The amp is perfect. Thank God.
