    No need to go overboard, but I don't think just plugging it into the wall is the answer. How many total components will you end up with in your new system that need power, three?
    Main - JVC QL-Y7/Denon DL-301 Mk II, Gold Note PH-10, Nuprime CDT-8, Auralic Aries G1, Aqua La Voce S3, PS Audio BHK preamp and 250 amp, Fritz Carrera Be, (2) Rythmik F12SE, Audio Envy IC's , Triode Wire Lab PC's & SC's, PS Audio Stellar P3, PI Audio Uberbuss, Timbernation rack

    Family Room - Oppo UDP-203, Teac NT-505, Audia Flight FL Three S, Nola KO, (2) Rythmik F-12G, Audio Sensibility SC & IC's, Neotech PC's, SurgeX SA-1810

    Agree that you donít need to go overboard but you do need a decent power conditioner. With V2 recently released, Shunyata Denali 6000S V1 can be had for around $2G. Thereíre a few units on Audiogon.

    Or talk to Santa Mike with a budget and heíll hook you up.

    My advice is get everything you want, "then", worry about isolation, power & cables. Do not go there yet..... you can't hear it to evaluate it until you have your system in your own home.

    I suggest that if you're not living in a rented space, a dedicated line (or two) with a whole home surge protector should be your first priority. Usually a several hundred dollar investment - a significant upgrade in SQ and protection for your gear. You can do the power conditioner/distributor later.

    Yeah, three.

    I have a Furman power conditioner that I used with my guitar amp. Would that do the trick and help the SQ?

    Also, I have a wireless router (Net Gear). Any implications there?

    OK, it's been too quiet around this sub forum. Now I know someone out there has heard both these amps. So, out with it! Tell us how they compare.
