Just wired up my new ART Clean Box. Made all my own cables from medical clear plastic tubings, Cat 5 Computer wire, XRL's, and RCA plugs. Followed the directions in the Crown Amplifiers in Depth papers for balanced, floating source with battery power. Unbelievable!  This little $50 box opened up the system, and quietly! Took the whole of an hour. Can't believe the VOLUME now attainable and CLEAN! Four interconnects (from the turntable to the pre-amp, to the Cleanbox to the Crown) complete and the box cost $85. For everyone I've been reading here, struggling with connection problems ...take note. Happy Holiday, Eugene @ jeenie67
