At present, I don't have anything other than some fairly basic surge protection devices that cost me about $70 bucks each.
I need to understand the issue of power conditioning more thoroughly because its another area that requires a lot of the highly-valued little green paper, and I want some direction before I go out and spend money uneccessarily. Some of the components in this category include power cords, isolation transormers, and big expensive power conditioners ranging from Monster boxes, to PS systems costing $3k or more.
Its been difficult for me one way or the other to determine the validity of the need for power conditioning/filtering devices.
Last night I was out for a walk, and something struck me. all of the fluorecent lights I passed were making a very loud hum. I got to thinking, If such noice can find its way into the circuits at my place (which is condo complex), then surely this would effect my HT/audio system in a negative way. I would think it all comes down to whether or not RF artifacts and other undesirable noise make it through the socket in the living room and then on to the system.
Opinions on this question are greatly appreciated.
