I have an approximate radial setup but the mixer would be the hub. Thing is and as I said, I've tried to
use some of these things in isolation. (only the zoom H4 or only the mixer, both have integral monitoring so
no need for an amp or pc) but I still see it. (well, hear it)

Ah, moved the radiator recently. I could run a cable tho.

well AFAIK, the house is grounded and being in the UK the sockets are all 3 pronged. that said, I'm pretty sure
that non of them use the 3rd prong. (plastic tab instead of a metal prong or 2 core flat cables)

Cool, ty. I'll try a few things. I'll also say goodbye now in case I'm found dead tomorrow with a spectacular new
hairstyle.

cheers,
