I have to agree parallel filters are quite beneficial and use them in my system. I have been using the ones offered by Alan Maher Designs for years. As a result I don't use a traditional power conditioner any longer.

Hello, i checked but i don't know how to get a US-version of the Noise eater. I suggest you mail and ask, it is a very good product.
You'll notice the effect very clearly.
Regarding restricted dynamics (or the fear of....), i can tell you that is absolutely not happening here.
I agree it looks like similar to Nordosts Qv2, but this is half price from that i guess. This is IMO a bargain. There are no downsides using this. It's like you change and plug in better power chords everywhere in your system.
Mr Tennis I only have experience with that product, I have purchased no others from Alan. It just seems to treat everything plugged into the same power strip. Even video is better on my TV.
I also have a Nordost Qv2. It seems to do something on a totally different level the the Alan Mayer parallel filter. They do not cross over, or effect each other, but are complimentary.
I now have too many of these devices plugged into my power chain, but if I had none I would start with this Essential Audiotools Noise Eater, it is cheaper than the rest.
I know this is an old thread, but maybe this would be the best place to put it. I had problems with noise getting into my preamp, since I use a power ethernet adapter to get my music to the streamer. I got the Noise Eater and all the noise (crackling sound during data transmission) was gone. Additionally, the sound, especially the mids and highs, got very cleaned up, there is more detail and realism of the music is enhanced. Very happy with the results.
