We bought our house under construction, and I made the mistake of not having dedicated power lines pulled to the room (one or more 20A?). I would do that if I had a chance and do some really good outlets (Furutech or the like).
Power treatment is optional--that’s a real can of worms which will trigger a debate! Even the manufacturers disagree. Mr, Van Alstine, for example, dismisses the notion that expensive cables and power treatments are needed, and the chief designer at Benchmark has questioned the value of expensive cables and power conditioning generally, but plenty of others disagree.
On the other hand, many reviewers swear by esoteric power conditioning.
Other factors affecting sound
I'm building a dedicated room in my basement and was wondering if I should care about in wall electrical wiring and Receptacles. Do these generally make a big difference. I assume anything should be better than builders quality material. Are there any specific recommendations? What about whole house surge protection? Also, I have an option to install a second electrical box, is this helpful? I have a 5000sq ft house in suburban area with very few houses near me. I have clean and stable power. Recommendations appreciated.
