    Default Where to plug it!

    Do you plug your amp into the outlet, or a power conditioner/surge protector? I've read that plugging into the pc/sp will change amp sound. Since amps are fairley pricey why wouldn't you want to protect it? Does the sound really change for the worse?

    Depends on a lot of things. Most power conditioners/surge suppressors limit current, and that's bad. Many amps also have very good power supplies that can handle the filtering. AC regeneration is where it's at now.
    Are you part of the dirty digital peasants or a member of the great Analog Master Race?

    I get noise through my amp out my left channel everytime the furnace comes on or other big appliances because when they re-did the power to my house, they combined way too many circuits. Now even though the furnace is on its own circuit. I still get noise. I hate it. I think its damaging my electronics but the landlord refuses to allow me to install a dedicated circuit for my audio. So I'm stuck with it.

    I will be purchasing an APC H15 in the near future to help clean up and filter this from feeding my amp. Sometimes I suppose some people have a need for these items. Usually people do notice equipment runs better. But as others will say... YMMV
