Apparently there is this new dimming technology. I can't say I really understand it, but I'm sure Ship would be able to explain it better. http://www.etcconnect.com/news/default.asp?240

From what I can tell this new technology makes it so there is no hum in the lamps, and also will greatly reduce the size of dimmers, and because of there size can be put anywhere, including in the house.

Has anyone heard about this new technology? This is the first I heard of it and I'm really curious.

Indeed it does look pretty cool :)

'Standard' phase controlled dimmers do have choke coils designed to smooth the choppy waves out a bit, but I like the idea of having a clean sinewave to begin with :)
