The API 16 provides transformer based isolation for each individual outlet, therefore, it can be current limiting if you exceed the rated input. It did a decent job in its day, especially if used with front end equipment with low power requirements. Excellent for digital equipment and eliminates the digital high frequencies from being injected back into you power lines.
Thanks brf, that was the kind of info I was looking for. Was thinking the same regarding using it for the digital front end (DAC and disc player). I believe the API 16 Ultra has transformers for each outlet, not sure the API 16 (previous to the Ultra) is positioned this way. The 16 has far more outlets than I need, so outside of the additional size, the transformer to outlet relationship may not mean that much to me. As aforementioned I intend to try it out.
Anyone know about the transformer structure?
