Re: Dirty AC and the theater
I can't say that i have ever done a competitive listening between power conditioners. I have heard some expensive boxes that did sound bad though (hum). While the Monster box is definitely "Consumer Level", it was designed by the fellow that did all of MITs power conditioners. He doesn't suck. But while my system sounds great, I cannot say it is because of the conditioner. Have you checked out the Shinyata boxes, they are getting some good press. I'm planning on a system rebuild that may replace the Monster with the Shinyata.
