    I'm considering getting a psychic in, bad spirits might be interfering in my enjoyment of music, I've tried almost everything else. Apart from that, when my fridge goes off, you know when it hums and then stops, I guess cos its reached the right temperature, then a click is heard through my speakers, does that mean anything? I've taken the mains conditioner out, as it was just a big box having little effect, is there anything else I should try power wise?

    Get an electrician to run a cable to a dedicated socket for the HiFi that is on its own circuit from the consumer unit.

    Mains conditioner? Mine works perfectly; never a click or hum whatsoever. Inky black background, even with the valve buffer.

    I've taken the mains conditioner out now, can't remember whether the clicks were there when it was in, but the general sound is no different.

    My last fridge did the same, and it was even worse with my Midi Time Piece MIDI interface because it set up a permanent sound from the MIDI instruments. So I would go out and return home to find 70dB of synthesiser had been playing for a long time.

    RS did a suppression potted block in packs containing a cap and resistor, packs of three or five I believe, and I fitted one in the mains connection box on the fridge with some improvement.

    Contact switch suppressors are readily obtained from Maplin or RS. They are usually a series combination of a 0.1uF 500V capacitor with a 100R resistor encapsulated in a single package. You can fit them across the thermostat contacts of your fridge, but only do so if you know what you are doing.

    Otherwise you could try plugging your audio system into another socket further away from the socket into which your fridge is plugged.
