    Meh, I bet Mike isn't even awake yet. Jason is definitely in the speaker room display, fussing over the display.

    Although, I could see him dinking around at CanJam, but that's where Mike was last year -- the Gadget was on display.

    Those are the transformers for sure.
    However there's a big chance a better AC supply can change it.
    Try listening for it in the middle of the night when the unwashed are in bed and do not use the grit.

    I'm sorry I don't understand what you're saying. Grit? How can I change my AC power supply?
  5. madwolfa
    Try a different power outlet perhaps.

    He means noisy power. All the electrical hash that comes from vacuum cleaners, blenders, and other nasty loads on the mains power.

    IIRC, Jason said that a couple early prototype transformers were noisy -- I'm wondering how well his transformer supplier solved that problem.

    Grid, as in electrical grid.
  9. Pietro Cozzi Tinin
    Ah yes grid.
    Grits are a mixture of corn, glue and manure.

    Interesting. I ordered my Vidars pretty much as soon as they were released. They've never been particularly quiet. I just noticed the buzzing last night when I put my ear up to it. I moved things around a bit. Perhaps it got worse?

    Anyone at RMAF yet who had visted Schiit room? Very eager to know if there’s a new Continuity/Class A amp prototype

    In my experience if the hum/buzz is audible in the speakers too (and not only in the appareil itself with your ear on it) a cleaner power-supply might do the trick.
    You can't un-ring a bell so action is necessary.
    Otherwise there's only medication.

    Technics have used some gallium-based components, I believe.
    (I think they use gallium nitride / GaN )

    It's been open for 18 minutes and you already want to know? :)

    RMAF is pretty big. First you have to find them! In the past, they've had a major speaker room that they share with an online vendor of speakers, some minor displays in other rooms dominated by other vendors, and about 3 tables worth of stuff in CanJam.

    I don't see any Southerners here on Head Fi denigrating your food....you might want to extend the same courtesy.
