    Default Happy accident, switched off the LED lighting circuit....

    Switched off my lighting ring today to replace an LED downlight.

    Left it switched off while I had a cuppa and forgot my task, getting old!

    Sat down to listen to a few chunes and thought WOW the system is sounding very good today!

    And then it dawned on me!

    I simply can't believe how much noise my lighting system is introducing into the mains.

    I have LED downlighters throughout all the ceiling lights with a few Hive bulbs thrown in (networked lightbulbs).

    Not sure which is noisey but the effect is similar to when I had noise due to network plugs, that I threw in the bin!

    I'm guessing that it may be the Hive bulbs, so will be removing them when I finnish this listenting session.

    Love a free tweak and the improvement is considerable. Much improved depth, slam and sweetness...

    Well its not the Hive bulbs

    Might be the downlighters or maybe a dimmer switch...

    Might install a dedicated mains at some point.

    Yes - best to install a dedicated mains. And use a completely separate RCBO, and not a 'spare way' in the consumer unit.

    No no no, under high bass transients the flame will flutter about and you know the noise that makes.

    I could wax lyrical about the sonic benefits of candles, but I don't want to get on your wick.
