    Quick info here Dave:

    Cleans up the mains, dramatically lowers the noise floor and the impedance of the AC supplying your kit.
    The higher the rated transformer the lower the impedance on the output, which was why I got the 10 KVA over my current 2KVA rated model.
    It'll just be powering the hifi.

    Cant fit a dedicated line at my property, so balanced mains is the way to go.
    Great improvement with my current BMU, expect a good improvement again with the "big mutha".
    Just wanting to maximise the potential of the kit I have.

    I know some people use battery supplies, I heard a couple of setups and imo they aren't the best for amps, especially for those big current swings.
    Good for sources though.

    Will see how I get on with it, its a lot bigger than my current one (which is neatly hidden away under an Ikea Lack table), so will have to rearange things a bit to accommodate this one.
    Its in the next room anyway and out of sight.

    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.

    Hi Gaz

    Have you tried it yet? Does it buzz?

    Cheers. Bill

    It won't buzz, but it might hum a bit, just like this .....

    Plumbed it all in last night...

    Oh yes...

    Simplified install compared to the last time I set one up, and maybe better for it.
    No "hydra" breakout box this time, just simple and neat.

    All wired up with Oyaide Black mamba 2 cable (favoured in Japanese Studio's apparently), hardwired from the wall, with two balanced outputs from the BPS.
    One output to a double socket, the other to a Maplins Linear supply set to 12V powering my router.

    Plugged into the double socket is my Sony OLED tv and a Wireworld Matrix 2 6-way mains block.
    All star earthed, high purity copper and such, the Naim guys recommend them as an upgrade.

    From there all my kit (SET power amp, PS Audio Preamp, Dac, Phono stage as well as the Oppo Bluray, and Michell T/T PSU is hooked up with Wireworld Silver Electra 7mains cables, as is the block itself to the double socket.
    Big fan of Wireworld cables , use their new Gold Eclipse 8 interconnects throughout my system now best I've heard.
    Happy with my Morrow speaker cable though and no wish to change that.

    Reckon mains improvements is done?
    A big step up from the smaller Balanced mains unit I had, the 10KVA "big Mutha" has far lower impedance as well as just being better all round.
    Big thanks to Grant for the loan of his Power Inspired regenerator.
    This let me see my incoming voltage was sitting at a near constant 247-251V, so I could set the input voltage tap at 250V which gives almost exactly 230V.
    And having tracked it over a few days I knew it didn't fluctuate much at all, which was cool to know.

    Sound wise, I noticed the improvement immediately.
    Its big and I'd describe it as instruments, voices and even individual notes being given room and time to come across in a realistic way.
    Hifi boxes are ticked of course, but secondary to the Performance which is...nice.

    Big spend, and a big install but getting the return in spades.
    Will take time for it all to bed in (there's also the new valve pre, the mains cables and even new 300B valves) so just sitting back knowing I've put in place what will be the system that will let me step off the equipment merry go round and just enjoy what I have.
    Will sound better as it all beds in, plan is to get the troops over again once it has.

    I've enjoyed the journey, but reckon I've reached the destination now.
    Set up a 2nd system in the office which is a lot of fun.

    Good hobby this innit?

    It is when you get the results Gaz. I'm made up with the improvements I have done in the last 12 months.

    Not to say more isn't to come
