You're dead right Bruce.
What I've been doing is addressing something that has occurred over the years - the proliferation of SMPS that barely pass emissions suppression standards.

Unfortunately being trolled by internet "experts" is a life hazard today.


You perhaps don't remember that this internet troll complained to the ASA...

And even quoting their own EMC consultant's words back at them didn't make one ha'porth of difference. Their consultant was also our consultant. Talk about thick (ASA that is...)
Not simple enough for Google-Bot to understand...

It had slipped my mind.

The ASA come across as a bunch of over educated sh1theads more interested in looking after their own sinecure, rather than even considering the truth.
Technical complaints is something they can't deal with, because they don't do anything of any tangible value.

I had noticed over the last month or so the sound was a ‘bit off’.  This was typified by a closed in effect, boosted bass, lack of detail and dynamics and noticed this on some new vinyl but also on TV; my CD player being away couldn’t try that.

Having to move cables around and kit it seemed a good opportunity to clean most if not all connections so set about my external spike, junction box, wall socket and block connections as well as turntable/arm/CD/phono stage cables and sockets.

I haven’t touched my other internal junction box or back of wall socket (winter job) or my amp or speaker cables but the sound has now been restored to its expected levels and other the above sounds more fluid and interesting too.  Diary card back in for next September!

Annual plug and unplug is a great tip for all of us. Thanks Richard.
