That's true and make sure you have adequate grounds such as
a copper strap connecting all components.  All connections to
the ground should be silver soldered.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Audio equipment cable shielding

We are doing some re-arranging of our studio here at the shop.  We're 
encountering hum from the audio cables being in proximity of power cables 
and possibly from florescent lighting (!)   Is there some way to shield 
audio cables from the influence of power sources?  I've read that one 
should always cross audio and power cables rather than having them run in 
parallel.  Any suggestions would be appreciated!
