Understand russ69. I may end up using the
SHUNYATA VENOM PS8 POWER DISTRIBUTOR, VENOM DEFENDER, AND VENOM HC POWER CORDS. It does not provide UPS protection, but i have been told that if I introduce an UPS to the line it would affect sound quality. Hence, I should be much less concerned with brownouts (which are common in my building) than sipkes 7 static.
@nouveau920 : Shunyata is a good choice!! I followed the Party Line of Naim-Heads that no conditioners should ever be used, ever, with Naim equipment. Installed a dedicated 20amp line for my all-Naim rig but the benefit/drawback of being the last house in one of Malibu canyons still [email protected] onto my system. Shunyata Hydra II and a bunch of Shunyata power cords (and $10k) finally fixed my anxiety! Richard Gray works well for my headphone system: Naim CDX-Lehmann-D-650. Substituted PS Audio PowerPlant: good riddance!!
Yup! Am so grateful for all you people's intelligent & useful feedback.. After replacing the fuse on the $800 Richard Gray, I had to scrap it as well as the $400 Monster unit. Hence $1,200 down the toilet. Am getting the Shunyata Venom 3 piece setup which is currently available as a package of the 3 pieces for 1K, marked down from roughly $1,400; a pretty good deal!
