  • anywhere from wall/distributer to equipment. This is the final key part which most hear and feel the difference.
    technical terms would be we are changing the electrical properties of the AC power going into your equipment. 
    Non measurable,  8)

    sorry dumb qn;

    if 1m from wall to conditioner, then 1m from conditioner to equipment, is count as what? 2m?

    or is it supposed to be every part should be 1.5/2m?

    i currently have a mix of 1m/ 1.5m cables, cos all very near, and i didn't want a mess of cables lying around, that's why i opted for short/ almost exact lengths.

  • imo every part 1.5m
    but ultimately its the cable going into you equipment that makes the final difference.
    most are able to hear that improvement. wall to distributer less, but does not mean no improvement. it is less obvious.

    interesting.

    i don't actually know where the sub station is (for my place), and i also don't know how to check how much power i'm getting thru the wall outlets.

    I didn?t post a fact hor, it was a very cynical post.

    Freaking crap MIC device, showing wrong voltage.

    Using that overpriced power filter as a expensive power extension for accessories.

    Not for main HiFi gear...
