This sounds interesting. What's an NTC? Looking around the web
it looks like there are lots of places in Holland which sell
devices for making machines quieter. Here in the wild west
it looks like everybody sells the same generic power supply
and any attempts to obtain information about quieter ones are
typically met with an incredulous stare. This is probably
because in America people believe that if something
makes a lot of noise, then it must be really powerful and
Maybe you can recommend a vendor of the above-mentioned kits
(or whatever silencing solution you currently use). Ideally
one which will ship to Canada, although I have some friends in
Holland who could forward the goods if need be.
