Question about Olympus VN-2100PC Digital Voice Recorder

Low sound quality, lot's of noise

Hi All, I've bought the VN, but the sound is awful: lot's of squicks and crunchs, and it's terrible when held in hand. I thought it was broken, so they sent me a new one- just as bad as the first. Why is there so much noise? any ideas? Thanks, Ran

Haier A/C CPR10XC7-L

The Haier ESA410J-L is part of the air conditioner test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, air conditioner models like the ESA410J-L are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Comfort:This is how well temperature and humidity are controlled at the low-cool setting. The best performers held temperatures to within one-and-a-half degrees of the setpoint.
Indoor noise low:This judgment of indoor noise at the low-cool setting combines an objective measurement of noise level using a decibel meter with a subjective assessment of noise quality (how annoying or grating the particular sounds were).
Indoor noise high:This judgment of indoor noise at the high-cool setting combines an objective measurement of noise level using a decibel meter with a subjective assessment of noise quality (how annoying or grating the particular sounds were).

I've just bought a used Ion Audio TTUSB05 turnatable, I ve plugged it into my amp and it sounds terrible. There is a lot of noise before the needle hits the vinyl, presumably it needs earthing, when...

It will need earthing if you are getting hum. As it is used I would replace the entire cartridge and stylus with the best you can afford. Make certain you wire it up right. A good test is with the cartridge removed and your amp on, is to touch each wire (one at a time) with your finger. You should hear a buzz on two wires (one left one right) and nothing on the other two wires (earths). This will help you get the new one connected right.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it sounds like the engine started to sieze. It has most likely done damage internally, the best thing to do is take it to your local decent mechanic and have it investigated further.
