Try connecting the REL ground wire to the chassis ground screw on the rear of the amp or to ground on another piece of gear.

The black (ground) wire is connecting to ST-10's ground output. ST-10 has it in the back panel. Not sure does the other models has it.

THe IDA-8 doesn't has the ground out like the ST-10. Can I use any chassis screw for ground (i see a big screw at the bottom of the chassis so I might try that).

Is it safe to the ground it the the electric ground output as well (we have UK type outlet) as I don't have other equipment nearby i can use...

While I didn't have a hum issue, I did connect in my main system (where I have a Class D amp) an unused RCA input on the preamp to the Rels.  The IDA-8 does have an analog input (unless you're using it).

I already connect the LFE/.1 input to my soundbar so in theory it should have provided the ground it needs...
