Except that review should be posted in the NVA review section. BTW I found a slight negative effect on soundstage in my system.

Good news BB! Enjoy - as I'm sure you will.

BMU just arrived safely from Berty bass - cheers m8!

Will report back in a few days on its effect in my system with strange mains, even through I have a Radial circuit I get humming transformers (DC?)

Make sure you keep it away from other kit Alfi. There is a 1KVA toroid in there .

This has always confused me because, unless you've done differently, most folk will have their new radial fed from the same CU feeding the rest of the house. Even on a split load CU the neutrals and lives will be pretty much shared. My central heating boiler makes a couple of transformers buzz when it fires up - it's on its own MCB and on the "other" side of the CU to my hifi sockets.

IMHO a dc blocker would be needed for me (and maybe you too) to get rid of the buzz. I could put a BMU in there but assume I'd still need the DC blocker otherwise it's likely the BMU will just buzz instead.

I'll await the Doc's thoughts though....
