FWIW my Corsair does exactly the same thing on both counts.

Again, is this a common issue with the Corsairs. If so, has anyone developed a modification that improves the effectiveness of the NB? The TRITON's NB is so effective in eliminating at least the noise that plagues me, I'd sure like to get the same NB effectiveness out of the Corsair. The NB's of the TRITON and Corsair are architecturally the same (signal flow and conditioning), so if the Corsairs have characteristically ineffective noise limiters, my powerline-generated noise is enough of an operating problem, that I would even entertain adapting the TRITON's NB to the Corsair....as a last resort.
