The K3 has isolation transformers on LINE IN/OUT. You don't need to add
any more. I assume you're using the term "ground-loop problems" in the
generic [and somewhat archaic] sense. Make sure that you're not using
the shield of any of the cables [RF or AF] as the bond between your
component's chassis' or enclosures. They should all be directly bonded
together. If isolating the shields with external isolation transformers
fixes the noise, that's a huge clue.
Finding the "chassis" on laptops can be a problem. The hold-down nuts
on DB or DE connectors are often [but not always] one place to get it.
Unfortunately, those can be hard to find on some new laptops.
In stubborn cases, I'm told it sometimes helps if all the power cords
connect to the same green wire too although I've never had to go that far.

Any way, I've been experiencing ground-loop noise from my PC.
I've tried three different isolation transformers and they all work, but
with significant signal loss from the PC.
Does anyone have a suggestion?
