    Continuing on from my thread HERE: (unfortunately most of the pictures have went the way of Photobucket and are gone)
    https://theartofsound.net/forum/show...balanced+mains

    Upgraded mine.
    Big mutha!

    (Shoe for scale)





    Massive toroid transformers, and theres two of em.


    One cool thing is that it has 3 "taps" for different input voltages?
    The mains AC voltage at my place isn't great and varies over time of day, so the plan is to keep an eye on it this coming week and take an average. Depending on the value I'll use whichever tap is the closest value to deliver as near to 230V as possible.
    May go down the regenerator route in addition to the balanced mains at a later date, but aint gonna be cheap, so may not.
    Its the hardwired model like my previous one, using better mains cable to plumb it in with, took weeks to come from Japan but hey ho, it's here now.

    Installing it next weekend...noise-floor begone!

    Oh, my old 2KVA model will be up for sale, post separately about that.

    Are crimped connectors the best type of connection then?

    Opinions vary I guess, I believe so Kevin yeah.
    Will be fitting the same crimp connectors to the mains cable I use to hook it all up with.
    Proper screw down terminals fitted, be a shame not to make the most of them.

    You could use Hard As Nails to glue a pair of skis to it (the pallet), and sledge it into work

    I’m not quite sure what this is for - the transformer thingy that is. Do you have 110v kit perhaps? Is the intention to run most of your house off this, or just the hi-fi zones? Is it really that important to have 230v? Most of the times I’ve measured our mains voltage it comes out at 240v - almost exactly.

    Also- you’re obviously already committed to this, but how would mains from a PV array via an inverter, possibly also with a battery (Tesla? ) compare for mains stability and low noise? I believe that modern inverters are very good.
