Dear Rod, Mike, Lou, Richard, Joe, etc.

Thank you very much for your advice!

I've disconnected the monitor and recorded "silence", but the buzz (like a 
shaver) was still present.  I've removed the I/O box from the PC case and 
everything sounded much better.  One thinks of upgrading one's system (in 
need of speed) just to encounter new problems slowing you down again!

Kind regards,

Diederick Basson
