    the time of day has lost much of it's relevance. seems a bit disorienting to me. but i'm warming up to it.

    I'm in Spain and it's been very weird. I'm nowhere near ready for retirement and don't think I ever will be! It's been very scary but I'm a lucky one. I usually travel a lot but can also work from home. I'm enjoying a less hectic lifestyle and finding a balance. I think those of us who don't...

    iFi audio iSilencer+ and iDefender+

    Hi. Just seen this when replying to the xCAN thread. I have an iMac that I'm probably going to link up to an xDSD and some desktop speakers. The iMac (and my MacBook) are a bit noisy to be honest - a hum as mentioned above - would the iDefender+ work here? I think I've read about Macs in general...

    Thanks. Mmm get the LPS should help things most definitely. . I was also reading eslewhere that my iMac could potentially have grounding issues as well.
