Ditto! Been sporting the full-on Kojak since the first lockdown...
I'm well on my way to Yul Brynner, so learned to use a hair clipper during lockdown to take care of what I had left. The first attempt, I set the clippers too short, plus I'd cut my forehead open the day before , so ended up looking like an extra from Shawshank Redemption. Scared my wife to death when she came in from work 🤣Ditto! Been sporting the full-on Kojak since the first lockdown...
Audiolab also maskes a dc blocker https://www.audiolab.co.uk/dc-block/I don't own a mains conditioner or anything like that, just a non filtered mains block, but what I found I had to buy was some kind of DC blocker.
Everytime my much better half or son used the hair dryer, my system sounded like a swarm of angry bees had moved in. It wasn't subtle. I bought the DC Blocker from ifi. Worked a treat, no more bees 👍.
I did look at the Audiolab at the time. I think I opted for the ifi due to its size and unobtrusiveness.Audiolab also maskes a dc blocker https://www.audiolab.co.uk/dc-block/

I bought one last week and it made no difference that I can hear in my system. I had an Olsen previous which I only replaced because the lead was about about 7m long and looked unseemlyI've got the Tacima mains conditioner from Amazon, £36. For me it's made quite a difference to my sound and in a good way. I was amazed really, and cos it's Amazon if you don't like it just send it back! I can feel other voices on here about to say I'm deluding myself but I'm happy. I was going to do an AB sound comparison but the difference was so obvious to the standard mains extension I never bothered
To clarify. They might have a small noise suppression effect on the mains itself but they have no effect on good gear in terms of performance or sound quality.Well that's just your opinion.... not fact.
Removing any noise or DC on the mains is certainly worthwhile......
Presumably that 7m lead couldn't be shortened Andy, in a way that mains leads usually can?I bought one last week and it made no difference that I can hear in my system. I had an Olsen previous which I only replaced because the lead was about about 7m long and looked unseemly
Not by a Luddite such as myself, I’m sure it could be done mind.Presumably that 7m lead couldn't be shortened Andy, in a way that mains leads usually can?
