After our move last year, I rebuilt my studio in a room with outlets that do not register as grounded on my surge suppressors. I have read conflicting reports about the dangers associated with ungrounded outlets and equipment safety, and I wanted to collect your thoughts on this.
I recently had a nearfield monitor burn out on me. Literally (nasty burnt smell and everything). However, this was preceded by an accident with a software synth that resulted in a horribly loud and strident sound for a minute or so before I got things under control. The problems with the monitor began after that, and it died the following day. I've had no problems with other equipment plugged into this outlet/surge suppressor.
