I recently purchased a cheap power conditioner to replace a Monster Power Center that I sold. I felt there was a veil over my music, so I plugged my gear directly into the wall and poof! -- the veil was lifted.
OK, so here's my question -- there are brownouts and blackouts all the time in my neighborhood. What type of protection against these issues is typically built into a tube amp and CDP? How much protection will the fuse in my amp afford me? Or should I forget about taking the risk and re-install a good power conditioner/surge protector?
