    Default Mains Power Supply Conditioner - Advice

    Sorry.... I posted this to the wrong Forum (Originally in Artist Impressions) mods... please delete.

    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?????

    In my experience all conditioners blunt the musics dynamic though some interpret this as added smoothness/sophistication. Those that entirely regenerate the mains are better but I've heard the very best that PS Audio do (they really are bloody expensive) and I still wasn't convinced.

    Agreed, after spending a lot of time experimenting I prefer good plugs and blocks, nothing fancy.

    Airlink BMUs are great vfm. Ive used one for years-I have an industrial estate over the road, if your mains are dirty they work wonders,

    I do have a spare custom one of these if anyone is interested of taking it out of my store cupboard. It is a 2kVA balanced transformer in hardwired configuration, I used a mains cable, took the IEC socket off & screwed the wires into the unit: https://airlinktransformers.com/prod...supply-bps2020 with a custom-specified RCBO on the output just for extra safety. Worth experimenting with a DC blocker too if going down the balanced mains route.
