Matches my problem exactly since it was a bad connect between the RCA grounds.

As long as the interconnect cable is shielded and intact (i.e., no disconnected ground), there shouldn't be significant hum heard in this scenario.

No hum in my case now - but definitely a large thump if I power off in wrong order!
