    It should prove to be an interesting comparison. I would try the TQR with my Ayre MX-R 20 mono-blocks on their own dedicated AC lines, but unfortunately I only have one.

    Maybe I will audition the Omega NR power cords with my mono-block amps since they are on their own dedicated AC line. I might also try to add them to the Everest along with my other gear on one dedicated AC line. Do you think that would be appropriate as I’m concerned that adding the amps to one AC line with my other gear might hinder dynamics?
    You can think about multiple dedicated lines as potential horsepower.
    Think of one dedicated line as a 200hp 4 cylinder engine.
    Then, two dedicated would be equivalent to an 8 cylinder 400hp engine.

    The 4 cylinder can haul your sports car, source equipment around just fine. But add a heavy trailer (big assed amplifiers) and that 4 cyl will be dogging it.

    If you want to pull a trailer with heavy loads - get an 8 cyl.

    In the power conditioner world, horsepower is equivalent to continuous current capacity and DTCD (dynamic transient current delivery).

    FYI noise reduction capabilities have zero effect on current capacity and DTCD. So having a good power conditioner is not a substitute for total current capacity.

    Thanks Caelin. That’s pretty much what I thought and what others have also said or implied, but I wanted to get your take on it with regards to Shunyata power distributors. BTW, your analogies are are great in helping to explain it.

    That being said, commodity power cords can actually decrease DTCD by as much as 50%.

    Many power conditioners may significantly reduce DTCD and continuous current capacity especially those that contain transformers, coils, toroids, ferrite beads, thermal breakers, small gauge conductors and poor quality connectors.

    This is the fundamental and cardinal rule for power distributor design: “Do not limited or impede continuous current and DTCD.” And that is before we even begin to talk about noise reduction approaches and technologies.

    From my experience I agree 100%, power is force!

    Caelin,
    As you raised the importance of DTCD, could you please advice if QR/BB can help to “increase” DTCD?
    I mean as long as we have “QR/BB equipped distributor” (in Denali etc.) before the audio equipment, will it help to improve DTCD of current delivered by cable from wall outlet to “ QR/BB equipped distributor” ?
