thank you for the responses....
If using a ext. cord provides a benefit would you be more apt to use a good power bar like the PS Audio Juice Bar with a 6-7 foot power cord or add a small balanced power unit for these video items.
KSales - What do you mean..."wary of conditions"? Can you explain? I have been looking at equi-tech. They are definetely well regarded. I assume they are very similar to BPT. Have you compared them? I would probably look at the Son of Q for 1000 watts which I assume is comparable to the BPT 1. If I go the BPT route I will likely get a cpc with a transformer which is likely to be a few hundred less than than the equitech or bpt1. Similar pricing, I would probably be apt to try out the equitech.
Warrenh & HRCapers - Overall, the BPT2 has been a good addition. I have tried it with the amp into the BPT and plugged directly into the wall. I prefer it plugged into the BPT (lower noise floor ..additional low-end). The surprise is my cd player, Ayre cx-7. When in the BPT it provides more mid & lower end and a smoother presentation. Directly into the wall, the presentation is a bit leaner with pronounced highs and less refined presenation. I am not sure what one is more accurate, and I continue to go back and forth. I am definetly use to the leaner, less refined sound.
once again, thank you for your input.
