    Home Theater Design and Construction
    I recently hooked up my Lutron Grafik Eye and noticed that when the lights are dimmed the bulbs make a high pitched hum. I read that rough service bulbs will not do this, but they normally don't come in the PAR format. Does anyone know of some good bulbs that are resistant to humming?
