What exactly do you mean by 'radiophonic'?

The dictionary defines it as:

denoting or relating to music produced by electronic means

... which is exactly what the M9 does.

It must be related to radio/electrical interfence of some sort. I would try relocating the M9 away from other receving/transmitting electronic devices, removing any nearby entanglements of electric cords and cables, perhaps using different electrical circuits, maybe try a power bar with signal cleaning, .......

Never had this before with my boss stuff. It is not THE amp but the

M9. I use best quality cables . Moving the device does not help.

I strongly doubt it is the M9 to be honest. Guitar pickups pickup this kind of RF signal all the time; the M9 is probably just emphasizing it, depending on what effects you're using.

I am sorry to say but guitar PU's have nothing to do with it. Connected or not, I still have the satellite radio in my M9. Arab, Russian, Polski ...I do not know! I use Cordial instrument cables as guitar cords. Never had this before. Is there a Line6 tech somewhere to tell me how to get rid of this nuissance?

Help please!

You should open a support ticket to get Line 6 tech support. (See Support tab at top of this page).

That is what I did but guess what... a guy from L6 told me to have some kind of a ground-lift adapter ..... The Line6 adapter for the M9 is a 2-pin connector ...

Even messing around with the earthing does NOT solve the problem....neither changing the interconnects....and in my opinion they do not know the solution at Line 6 either ...they only replied to me ....we heard of this problem....

Perhaps you can try something call Ferrite Bead (or something similar). I work with a guy that suggested it for computer speakers as it would reduce interference. Apparently it's pretty cheap at Radio Shack.

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
