I read your description of RF problems you or someone you know encountered. As you posted this yesterday, and not 20+ years ago, I sincerely felt my response was relevant and would address a current or recent problem.

Your tone throughout these exchanges has been curt and unfriendly; a tone, I am pretty sure, you would not use, had we these conversations in person. Please be kind and respectful, even on the internet.

No RFI in BAE equipment or Chandler / Manley 30th Mic Pre (in my studio anyway).

2 of these have a gold/brass chasis and all have the 24v psu box. Many told me changing preamp wouldn't do anything and looks like I proved them wrong. A -1 for Ams Neve definitely here.
Good sound those Marinairs but cant be having this RFI problem and pulling my hair out or contemplating digging an earth pit in my garden.

I just need to figure out which permanent sound/tone of preamp I want now, as I am slightly accustomed to the 1073spx.

I also tried the brass plate on top of my 1073spx from the bar 1073 and it did nothing to prevent the RFI in it, so I dont believe any shielding would of helped, and really cba drilling a new hole in my wall down the side of the house for to earth to a ground pit.

I guess at least NOT EVERY preamp had RFI in my studio.
