Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only... Initially, does the Yamaha work correctly when another input is connected such as a CD player? Additionally, have you tried to temporarily connect directly either Technics SL-1200 to the PHONO jacks of the AX-396?
yes the amp works perfectly on other in input cd, cd recorder etc..
and yes i have tried phono into the amp directly..thats ok.
the problem occurs when i connect phono through a mixer..
and as i said i have tried several different mixers.. all result in the same problem,
an audible hum which increases as you increase the volume
even without a record playing
I understand.A review:
