I have some hiss that I would like to remove. I was thinking about ferriting(sp?) the mains cables and rca that will go to my dv 336i (when it arrives).

Good or bad idea?

Thanks.

Well, what equipment are you using? A simple solution would be an impedance adaptor to raise the impedance on your headphones. If the hiss is AC related, try a power conditioner. If it's EMI/RF related, try shielded cables.

Im using a beresford dac hooked upto a rotel ra 04 stereo amp via a belkin silver series 'crystal copper' rca. Also employed is a tacima mains filter / surge protector. Bow down and open your wallets when I say this is a what hi fi 5* product. It does make a difference to my lg42lc2db panel though... Also use an mk double gang unswitched socket. I've done everything that I can. sparks, re-wiring etc. It is now pissing me off. Phones are 32 ohm grados, goldring 150's & a few wierd phones of unknown impedance + a set of hd 650's.

Thanks.
