I have the Tice 3A and a PS Audio P300 for front-end gear. I'm using Mapleshade power cords on my custom-made SET monoblocks and have tried them into the wall (dedicated 20-amp circuits) and into the Tice. Both the amp designer and I prefer them into the Tice. The Omega Mikro power cord on my Sony XA777ES sounds best into the PS Audio, while another Omega Mikro on a VPI SDS sounds best into the wall. Moral: Experiment.
