5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, a ground loop isolator that works!!, 1 Nov. 2015
Used to cure a ground loop noise problem I had with my PC.

My setup was originally as follows PC -> Mixer -> Yamaha HS5 active monitors.

The ground loop noise wasn't audible when I used standard passive PC speakers but became intolerable once I upgraded to active studio monitors. The noise sounded like static interference which seemed to respond to any kind of FLASH moving imagery on web pages. At first I used a 3.5mm noise filter (about £6 on Amazon) which did the trick quite well (not as well as this Behringer mind!) but as soon as I plugged in to the PC using another source, such as the USB for my line 6 pod, or DAW, the noise was back!

I tried using a USB hub as recommended on one of the forums but this didn't work. Next a USB isolator - still didn't work. Luckily I stumbled upon this Behringer product. I use it at the end of my input signal,
I.e PC/DAW/Line 6 Pod -> mixer -> Behringer -> speakers
...and it does the job perfectly!

I honestly couldn't recommend this product enough. Well built, metal chassis, compact and well presented that kills ground loop noises with ease.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waste no more time, buy this!, 18 July 2015

Scenario: Squeeling, snapping and popping coming out of active monitors when I plugged my computer into the mixer. Interference was made worse when using the mouse or keyboard, and responded to video playback on websites (almost like processor noise). I tried updating the sound card drivers, BIOS settings (C1/speedstepper etc), and next step was a dedicated sound card.

This little device cured the noise instantly! Plug the male end (labelled IN) into your computer headphone out socket, and the female end (labelled OUT) goes out to your devices. Worth every penny and arrived within a day of ordering via free express delivery. Absolutely delighted, thank you!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Work of Art, 24 Aug. 2013
This review is from: Perspective (MP3 Download)
To clarify: an earlier review that suggests Becker does not play guitar on any of these tracks is untrue. His guitar playing blesses 5 out of the 9 tracks on this album.

Two songs, including "Blue" and "Rain" may well be Jason's last songs as a guitar player, and what awesome compositions they are to go out on. This album is less of Jason's shred metal style as seen on his work with Cacaphony, but more the melodic psychedelic shred alike previous songs "Altitudes" and "Air". For listeners new to Jason Becker, I would recommend starting with the album Perpetual Burn.

Overall this is one of those albums that you could listen to over and over in an empty room.

(For fans of guitar masters such as Yngwie Malmsteen, Van Halen, Steve Vai & John Petrucci)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great product for the price., 3 Aug. 2013

I'm using this product as a desktop solution for all of my guitar practice equipment. I have an effects pedal train running into one mono input, an iPad running into a stereo input, and a metronome running into a third input . This allows you to feed all of this into a headphone output, keeping the volume levels of each in trim.

My amp is also fed from one of the outputs so that I can use the amp when required. I couldn't do without this piece of kit.

Loss of one star due to the volume dip of inputs when "cd to mix" button is pressed. I did intend on using the cd input for my iPad until this downfall occurred, instead had to settle on one of the 1/4 inch inputs . Overall though an excellent buy, would recommend!

Decent quality, 2 by 2 cd wallet. The wallets themselves feature a fabric backing and the typical plastic outing to hold your cd's in place firmly

The T is one of Gildans new "Soft-Touch" style, which are a little thinner and better fitting shirts. The sabbath logo is pressed on with great quality.

As with all Planet Waves Nylon guitar straps, the quality is superb. You won't buy another brand of strap again, I have 6 different styles of Planet Waves nylon straps - All like new 10 years on!

The material is very smooth (almost silky), the pattern is not a transfer so lasts years, and overall it is a pleasure to have on your shoulder.

Gibson straps dig in, Fender straps are too rigid and look naff, and many other brands of strap are made of a coarse/ropey material - I have tried many and these are far superior.

5.0 out of 5 stars It Works!, 24 Jan. 2013

Does its job perfectly - and even holds an S3 with the official Samsung case fitted.

Sturdy enough that it doesn't move around when going over pot holes etc, and the suction to the screen is sound.

Would recommend

4.0 out of 5 stars 2x atFoliX FX screen protector for HX100V, 11 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perfect fit, and very easily applied without bubbles appearing! The LCD screen on the HX100V is a haven for fingerprints and smudges, so this really helps out a great deal.

Only awarded 4* and not 5 because screen protector is not totally transparent, so the image does appear slightly dulled down when screen protector has been applied. Not a big deal, and an excellent product overall.
