    Default Wonder how/if this will affect audio quality - among other things

    Huge solar storm:

    Should make for some interesting suset rises/sets.

    I wonder if this would be another reason to have a power conditioner.

    Damnit!... I made a mental note to shut everything off and unplug it before leaving the house today... yes I'm anal about my electronics.

    Seems the brunt of it has already come and gone but hopefully the lingering effects wont be as bad.

    Just found online a powerstrip that has a remote control to turn off/on outlets in the switched slots. It has a couple of always on outlets. That may the thing for me as I like to turn everything off power wise except for my dvr.

    Will these solar flares offer me a more "warmer" character to the sound?

    You'll have a much "warmer" sound in a couple of months.
    My equipment sig felt inadequate and deleted itself.
