MIT Z Center vs PS Audio Ultimate Outlet?


I currently have an MIT Z Center which I have my preamp and DAC, and plugged into. Would like to know if anyone has done a comparison of performance with the PS Audio Ultimate outlet and the MIT. The MIT takes a component shelf and it would be nice to improve sound and eliminate a shelf on the component rack. Would there be problems using a digital component and preamp using the same PS audio outlet? I currently have an isolated outlet on the MIT for digital components. Comments would be appreciated.

Great question, one I would like to know the answer to as well!!

I've had both. The Z center has the ability to isolate your preamp, DAC, and CD player. Can only handle medium size amps. A great product. The ultimate outlet cannot isolate your components. It is recommended to have one for preamp, one for digital, and one for amps. It will handle any size amps though. Can be expensive. If done right though, it is simply amazing and in my opinion, outperforms all power conditioners since there is no restricting of the power or sound. Much more open sound.
I have a Z-center and like it a lot. However after adding six dedicated circuits to my gear, I can no longer here the sonic benefits when A/B comparing. It is currently being offered at auction.
FORGET THEM BOTH AND GET A HYDRA...MORE MONEY,BUT MAN WHAT AN IMPROVEMENT! plus you can plug EVERYTHING into it.
I have 2 dedicated sets of outlets of which the z center and transport are plugged into one of them and my monoblocks are plugged directly into the other set. I have felt that the sound may be better going directly into the outlet because of now power limitation but am concerned about not having protection from power surges. The z center seems to do quite well but I do not have enough dedicated outlets to do the AB comparisons. Sounds like there may be no sonic benefit of conditioning when you have a dedicated cicuit but you do take the risk of no surge protection.
