    Default Power Supply Conditioner - Advice

    Nothing's wrong with my power supply ( I think) but just curious to know if these devices are truly up to what is stated???

    Anybody got one? And if so, what is the recommendation?

    They appear to be extortionately expensive and don't really want to waste yet more money on redundant equipment that doesn't work.

    Any advice much appreciated?

    I would be wanting sometime I could plug everything into the device, so a reasonably high power rating and "if it would make any real difference "

    I guess the McIntosh MA 2275 takes the Most current.

    Seen a couple on the interweb but my gosh are they expensive

    Any pearls of wisdom?????

    Yeah, there's a few of us who have tried it all, mains conditioners, regenerators, balanced mains, DC blockers, but ended up back at square one with a decent unswitched, no neon mains block, and that's it. Here's what I use:

    Mana Acoustics Racks >> Custom Silent Media Server >> Halide Bridge USB (with AQVOX USB power) >> Pedja Rogic's Audial Model S DAC + Pioneer PL-71 turntable / Vista Audio phono-1 mk II / Denon PCL-5 headshell / Reson Reca >> LFD DLS >> LFD PA2M (SE) >> Royd RR3s.

    Interesting. For the uninitiated, can you briefly describe what makes that different from a cheap generic power strip, and what benefits it provides? I'm intrigued...

    I guess piece of mind that you're getting a solid connection (can lift the block up by a plugged in plug), no chance of mains conditioners 'sitting on' the dynamics of the system, no noise from neon switches, just a tight and robust connection. I guess you could use a cheaper PDU that also meets these requirements.
