yeah, i do the same thing.. my uv3, spinning wren 7's, plus decstations 
and a
dec3000 alpha put out a nice whirring hum, on a couple of occasions 
during really bad storms ive powered everythign down except the one 
decstation on a UPS, and the place was _eerily_ quiet. its easy to not 
notice how used i was to fallign alseep to the sounds of the disks 
auto-calibrating themselves every so often and humming and spinning away 
downstairs (and you can hear it almost throughout the place.. :-) 
*sigh* the peecee kiidies dont know what theyre missing!

eagerly awaiting that 4000/600
