    I have just purchased one of these plasmas, and am finding the fan noise a little distracting. I have plasterboard walls and laminate flooring which isn't helping i guess. Would it be possible to put some kind of sound dampening material behind the plasma, and if so, does anyone have any recommendations?

    Nexnix adviocate putting a thick towel behind the screen. I have some loose weave matting shoved in there at the moment but I can't decide whether it helps or not. To be honest I'm getting used to the noise now.

    I e-mailed a load of manufacturers of acoustic materials and the only repiesy I got back were from Soundreduction.co.uk whi suggested their Coustifoam product, and CustomAudioDesigns.co.uk who suggested their "black FR acoustic foam".

    However, if you do a search you will find a thread by me in here on an upcoming official Hitachi fan modification that should reduce the noise levels for this screen.

    Thanks Darren, I had come across your thread before - any ideas when the mod will be available?

    No idea at all I'm afraid. I'm out of the country for a week. When I come back I'll chase them up about it. They did imply that if they approved the change it would be very soon.
