    Sheet 'LEAD' For Shielding Hifi

    What do people here think about the idea of lining the inside of CD Players, amplifiers etc with pure lead sheets to block various forms of interference? Would it work do you think? I know not to use it near anything magnetic like a torroidal transformer because lead is an ANTI-MAGNET.
