Problem with Rega Aria Phono Stage

Jun 18, 2020
I currently run a Rega P8 with Aphetta 3 MC cartridge. I have been using a Rega Aria Phonostage and it has recently begun to cause a low level buzz in my speakers once it warms up. When I first power it on it is dead silent, but after playing an album or two you can hear a low level buzz in the speakers when not playing a record. If I unplug the turntable from the phono stage the buzzing continues. Does anyone have an idea as to what could cause this? Also, if I am going to upgrade what would you recommend for a MC phonostage to go with the Rega TT in the $2k-$4k range?
