    Re: Electrical Interference Solution

    Does anybody see a problem with having a bunch of chokes or caps in line with your power? Or any other audiophile Voodoo that goes in one of the many conditioners that are out there. I was highly suspect of the addpower stuff myself. Ed brought it over to my house and plugged it in. It's the second only conditioning device I have ever heard that did not have any negative impact on my overall system. The other piece, an Akiko Corelli doesn't show any negative impacts, but it is also questionable whether it's even doing anything positive at all. The addpower absolutely stands out as improving the sonics all around in my entire system. And it's darn inexpensive. $450 or so. And a 30 day money back. And it's small and light. Shipping costs are only a few bucks.

    Re: Electrical Interference Solution

    Rex, is the $450 price you quote for both the ElectrClear and Symphony? There are audio web sites that sell ADD-POWR with free shipping and no sales tax. I actually got the two for less than that. I'm still waiting for the Symphony to be delivered.

    Re: Electrical Interference Solution

    Im pretty sure I paid $75 per Electraclear and $350 for the Symphony. So maybe it was $425. I ended up with 2 electraclear in the end. The original one in my power strip with the symphony did most of what I hear. The 2nd electraclear a week later went into my Power strip in my mechanical room feeding my router, modem and switch. I did not notice that as much. I did not pay any shipping as Ed dropped them off at my house during a listening session.

    In comparison, It's not like trying AQ Niagara 5000 at $4,000 or a Isoteck Aquarious at about the same. How about regenerators at $7000. Those are such a big chunk of money. Ok, you could get a Niagara 1000 for about a grand. I have just tried a lot of those devices (sans a regenerator) and heard them all. I don't hear the Add-power. I notice my system runs with a lot more ease like the amps are bigger. I notice I can turn up the volume way higher and not get fatigue. And the instruments and voices are more natural and closer to live. In my mind, it's worth a try.

    I bet as these get more popular they are going to go up in price. I'm pretty sure the electraclear is going to be redesigned like a cylinder so it only takes one socket. I'm sure it will go up in price. The symphony is a bargain. I am going to have Ed bring the Wizard by here when he gets one. I hear it will make things a little more smooth.

    Remember, I play digital allot. Vinyl is only a hobby for me. I do find, now that Ed got all excited about his Kuzma and got me playing my vinyl again, that my vinyl sounds damn nice. Better than I remember.

    Re: Electrical Interference Solution

    Does anybody see a problem with having a bunch of chokes or caps in line with your power?

    Capacitors need to have an 'X' or 'Y' safety rating.

    With ferrite chokes, all three conductors need to go thru the ferrite.

    With iron core, wire wound chokes, they need to be safety rated for the task at hand. Only use on the Hot & Neutral conductors. Not on the Safety Ground/Protective Earth conductor.
