    Comments about RadioShack Ground Loop Isolator:

    I had Comcast install cable in my house. The tech left and then I started noticing a buzz/hum with every channel. I searched the internet for the source and this seemed like the solution (and it was). I plugged it in and all extraneous noise disappeared.

                I had constant static noise with my KRK Rokit 5 studio monitor speakers. I installed this ground loop isolator and it fixed the problem 100% - as simple as that. I couldn't be happier with this product.

                Works, but needs female 1/8" adapter

                Best Uses

                  Comments about RadioShack Ground Loop Isolator:

                  I bought this at my local Radio Shack to use in my car with my smartphone as my music player. The isolator performs the function it's supposed to in eliminating noise. But I needed 1/8" headphone style connections instead of RCA. This does come with the RCA to MALE 1/8" headphone plug adapter, but it does NOT come with the FEMALE 1/8" adapter. NOR does Radio Shack even appear to even sell such an adapter standalone!!! I had to go to order the female 1/8" to RCA adapter from another online vendor (couldn't find one anywhere else locally either). It floors me that Radio Shack doesn't even sell the needed female 1/8" adapter standalone, much less package it in with this item. I'd give it 4 stars if I could at least purchase the female adapter standalone from Radio Shack (just the convenience of purchasing the isolator and the needed adapter cable at the same time). I'd give it 5 stars if they packaged the female adapter in with the isolator.

                      I bought a wireless earphone with base to use with my television. It had a terrible buzz that I could not get rid of when I plugged the base into the tv. I installed this ground loop isolator and the buzz went away like magic. My earphones now work well.

                          Works great was about to spend way to much at the music store trying to resolve this with my krk monitors. Any one with a home studio should keep one these on deck at all times. Also could see a use if having this issue with car audio in late models.

                              Had been getting annoying hum from Time-Warner DVR hooked to 37" flat screen TV, worse at some times than others but especially bad when viewing recordings and would get even louder when fast-forwarding or rewinding. Knew it was DVR problem rather than incoming cable line because there was no hum when viewing directly from cable (without going thru the DVR box). Replacing the DVR didn't help -- did that several times, but they all had the same problem & cable guys couldn't figure out a solution. But the hum stopped immediately upon installing this device! Only confusion was which way to connect it. Tried first connecting short cables to the DVR and longer ones to TV, that cut the hum by 90% -- but connecting the reverse way cut it out completely. Well worth the price...

                                    I used this to solve a hum problem with the subwoofer in my home threatre system. The hum showed up anytime TV cable was connected to my television. I tried working with the cable company, using a surge protector with cable connections, using a grounded subwoofer cable, and on and on. Nothing helped. This product solved the hum problem instantaneously. I'm ecstatic. I'd give this 5 stars if it wan't for the lack of a female RCA connection on the device.
