So Bass etc.,
Have you read any of the replies to your post because you haven't had the good grace to acknowledge any of them? It would be nice to know whether you and WE have wasted our time.
Well they are hardly going to want to come back to snippy little comments like that are they?

Keeping it clean here in Australia is often scoffed at, and I was guilty of doing it for years.
Since installing a Thor PS10 Smart Power Station into my system I no longer worry about the damage that could be done to it by the grid supply.
I have found that the PS10 has improved the results I get from my equipment; in particular the turntable side of my system, it definately sounds better.
Even if its a illusion, it works for me.......:)
Not all countries have a nice stable grid like we do in the uk. It's understandable that ups and what not are popular in certain areas of the US where they suffer huge fluctuations and brown-outs.
+1 (well said!)
In my country we do have a fairly stable grid, I have to say. That doesn't mean that when living in an apartment building (such as mine) where I have to share powersupply with several other residents and their household electronics it gonna be 100% "clean" and "stable" all day/night.
Personally I would glady have considered a regenerator (as some of you mentioned earlier) if I had known those even existed prior to testing Isotek in my system and noticed the improvements it made. I would never recommend anyone purchased any of this stuff without testing at home first.

Darned right on that one. Here in Houston half the domestic mains supplies are still provided by cables on poles with "pot" transformers up the poles as well. Houston, notable for its humidity and thunderstorms, has a HORRIBLE mains supply as a result. All the electronics in our hose have at least a surge protector in the circuit and my PC runs off a UPS just in case. Serously thinking about having "clean" AC circuits run off a central inverter in the garage built into the house when we move.
I agree with "The Audio Critic":
Just about all that needs to be said on
this subject has been said by Bryston in
their owner’s manuals:
“All Bryston amplifiers contain
high-quality, dedicated circuitry in the
power supplies to reject RF, line spikes
and other power-line problems. Bryston
power amplifiers do not require specialized
power line conditioners.

There are a lot of ways and 'claimed' ways that the mains can be cleaned up. Personally I use a balanced mains transformer.With regards to mains cables, unless theres something fancy in them, then there are 2 main types. Ones that stop radio waves getting into the cable via shielding around it. And the 'braided' type which reject RFI thats in the mains to begin with. Obviously its down to how much RFI is in the mains and in the air. But I personally much prefer the braided type, and the more 'braids' the better the rejection.I dont like the braided interconnects and speaker cables though as once RFI is out of the system then you should only shield the cable from outside sources.I do recommend a Tacima mains conditioning block for the low wattage devices too (CD and DVD player)
