LED interference?


crisis

Recommended Posts

So I made an impulse buy thinking I could put these behind the cabinet I have all of my equipment on. Having given it some thought, I am interested if the informed among us think they may cause some interference with either the power cables or the RCA interconnect cables?

Thanks.

It's difficult to predict  .... LED lights themselves do not radiate interference .... it is the high frequency power supplies and circuits which drive them that are the culprits.

 

If the LED strip is certified to pass all the usual EMI/radio interference type regs .... then they should be fine.   Assuming that they are used with well designed audio equipment that isn't designed to be susceptible to picking up stray energy.    Shielded ICs, etc.

The power supply will be a wall wart USB adapter as these are actually designed to plug into a USB output of a TV. My equipment is Primare and Arcam rPhono (which is supposed to have a decent power supply stage as far as isolation) and a SRM turntable which operates from a wall wart PS. The lights will be plugged into a power point that the equipment isn't FWIW. Anyway I plug them in, try it and see how it goes I guess. Cheers.
