My amp just arrived and it has a ticking noise (about once every second) even with only the power cord plugged in.
A bit of research suggests this is possibly due to "dirty power" coming from my outlets although there's also the possibility it's the tubes.
Has anyone else heard anything like this and know of any solutions? I'm thinking I might just have to get a power conditioner but would rather avoid it.
Thanks in advance for any help.
Hmmm sounds more like a power supply thing, especially if it is consistent in the timing. I would try multiple places to check it (like your friend's house, your work, etc.) If it is still there, maybe a power conditioner, but being able to directly attribute it to your home wiring is important.
