I bought three of the magnetic filters, one for DAC's power supply, one for amp's power supply, one for speakers' power supply.

Let's see this helps reduce or eliminate clicking sounds
if got clicking sound.. most likely cant get rid by this ferrite bead or ferrite choke

your clicking sound probably cause by lights,refrigerator and other electrical appliances

I dunno how to describe the sound I'd heard before using the ferrite chokes, but I could definitely hear a watery like sound with some crackling (maybe clicking sound), the chokes totally removed it. Being a typical kiasu Singaporean, I intend to get a line/power conditioner as well.

Curious to see the outcome of the deployment of those filters. The cause of the issue you face could lie elsewhere, but I'll keep my fingers crossed.
So far, the clicking sound no more, but something tells me this is not exactly due to the filters.

They made the sound a bit more sibilent though

Good point, I need to check on these too. Can confirm that the tube amp (a DIY'ed 12AU7 amp from Fred's Amp with normal PSU) is the cause of the clicking. (I reduced it a few weeks back by replacing the filtering caps in it after diagnosing via chopsticks test.)

I am already using a Weiduka AC 8.8. Not sure if this made sense: Now I need to crank up the volume of all components before being able to hear any distortion/buzzing e.t.c.

Hmm. I suspect the homeplugs I was using played a part in creating sound distortion.

Anyone here got similar experiences?

EDIT: I should have read this first...? http://forums.naimaudio.com/topic/do...quality?page=1

Yep, I have the same problem as well. Too many plugs plugged into two multi-plug extension cords.

Was thinking of getting that as well, spoke to my old friend about it, he has a Castle line conditioner (with US plugs) that he can give me......give, yes, that's right. I'd be fool to not accept it. Hoping to meet him to get it in a few days' time.

Good choice, moment I used it I felt my SQ just became more cleaner, especially for highs.

pulled the trigger

these IEMs are being hyped up by some folks over at SBAF and i must say best earphones i've tried at this price point. sound reminds me of fostex TH900 without the treble issues.
