Post Subject: The "Theory" and the HedgePosted by Paul S on: 4/6/2008

Yes, the bass was better immediately after making the swap and, being OCD, I swapped again to confirm.

The "Theory" is that 60 Hz and sub-set LF noises are cleared out of the circuit when all hum is banished ,so pre-amp can send better bass music.

The "Hedge" is that AC was generally better than it's been for quite a while today, but there were the usual sudden lapses throughout the session.  So maybe the AC just happened to get worse during the 2X when I had the 3-prong plug in the outlet.

I'm also guessing ML2s appreciate any help with my bass bins, including less LF noise at inputs.

Don't worry, though, I'm not claiming "World Class Bass", anyway.

However, improvement does include more "downward-developing" harmonics for better wieight, which I like and would take even more of.

Nothing earth-shaking, but certainly worth doing.

Best regards,
Paul S
