Determine whether the hum is mechanical or due to ground loop. If you don't hear the hum from the speakers and if the hum is beyond the noise floor of the room then I wouldn't worry to much about it. 

Another cause of the hum is due to your electricity supply. Check the voltage. I do not have the actual reasoning but I noticed that I get the hum when the voltage was very high. 

If it is ground loop then isolate the offending equipment. You could try to google on groundloop troubleshooting.

Thanx for your co-operation. The humming sound comes from inside the system. I think from the capacitor. It's come only from the amp. I didn't get any sound distortion from the speaker. I have checked it to my friends house too, same problem occurred.

Looks like mechanical hum. How loud was it?  There are a number of people facing similar problem with the Quads. Some say, the older Quad requires ground cable to be connect to your preamp. Some say, there is D.C. In the power supply. Sometimes, large capacitors will hum. Do you see any silicon or damping material on the capacitor? Check whether they are intact.

The sound is very low.

I contact with the mechanics regarding this humming sound, he told me that due to powers supply has been damage. Need to change power supply system.
