Re: Mains Filters... do they work?
Sounds like a motor whine from your description.
I don't know what types of filters are available in Paris, but surely
you are not the first person there to need help with this problem. I
would check with high end high fi dealers, they worry about line noise
intruding into their listening.
What AC voltage does Paris use (120,240,100)? 50hz or 60hz?
Is it 3 wire, one is ground, one hot, one neutral?
