Just trying to get further into that damn hole.
OK, here we go. Some of you guys may remember when I had a humming/buzzing noise coming through my tweeters a few months ago. That was solved by rearranging how I had everything plugged into the outlets. Since then I bought some Signal Cable power cords and have them in the system now. All is great, well kind of. My TV and cable box are plugged into a separate outlet in the wall behind the system. My amp, pre and cdp are all plugged into a cheap power strip. The power strip is plugged into a different outlet than the TV and cable box which eliminated the humming/buzzing noise. Am I a douche :(:o or what for having my system plugged like that? Go ahead and let me have it, I can handle it.
Here are my questions/concerns
How much am I restricting the performance of my components by having them plugged in like that?
I guess I need a dedicated circuit and line from the electric panel to the back of my system. Do I buy the hospital grade outlets and have the electrician install them. Its about 20 feet from the panel to the system. Any idea what something like this will cost?
How will my system be protected? By the breaker in the electrical panel? I have about $3,500. into my amp, pre and cdp so I guess they should be protected.
I'm thinking I better address this before buying some monitor speakers to fool around with. Right?
Thanks in advance for all advice.
