    Grits do not exist in Europe and I really do not know where they're from in the US.
    This quote was from a US tv celebrity chef.
    If I offended someone by quoting him I am terribly sorry.

    It certainly does if you consider Romania, Moldova, Bulgaria, Georgia, Albania, Serbia, Macedonia (and probably Italy with their polenta) part of Europe.

    In years past schiit has posted a news release on their website about the goods they are previewing at RMAF. Hopefully they do it this year as well.

    Ah but that's the thing.
    I fed polenta to lots of Americans and asked them if it was Grits-like.
    They where all unanimous that it doesn't even resembles grits.
    I guess I have to be fed grits to understand the difference myself.
    And no... I do not consider all countries you mention European. Far from it in fact.

    I use a Vidar in single ended configuration at EU voltage and it also produces both transformer hum and speaker level hum. Transformer hum is audible (not very loudly, but still audible) from the listening position but the noise coming through the speakers is much lower level and can be heard only at a distance of couple of inches away.

    I tried using it at the same outlet without the ground wire (DO NOT DO THIS AT HOME) and the transformer hum was still there but lower level. Based on this I concluded there is a lot of noise in the power grid and most likely a ground loop.

    As @Pietro Cozzi Tinin said, the solution (and my next HiFi investment) will be a power regenerator.
    If you are in The United States which are in America, you have a couple of cheaper options to try such as the Emotiva filter that @the finisher suggested.

    Well, TBH, if an Italian doesn’t have the right to criticize food, who does? :D

    Some might even call those... "schiitholes".. and as someone originally from those parts, I'm not really surprised. But I digress.

    Thanks for the link but I'm not convinced.
    I can cook rice a million ways with lots of different rice races.
    Cooked rice in India doesn't come near cooked rice in Italy.
    They're both delicious in a million ways however.
    Different cultures tend to cook the same produce waaaaay different.
    So in this instance I must depend on the opinion of people who ate both polenta and grits in their native cooking environment.

    Oh nooooo.
    You know better than that.
    The French better cooks than Italians?
    Get real.
