Richard Gray and Transparent: compatible?


Anyone know of any issues of compatibility with Transparent Power cords and Richard Gray equipment? I've heard some claims that Transparent power cords are current limiting thereby defeating the Richard Gray parallel power delivery. Others claim that the network used on Transparent cords does not interface well with Richard Gray equipment. Thoughts?

I have Transparent on all my gear, including my CJ 350 amp, and have never had any problems. I cannot see how they would limit the current as they are of sufficient gauge to cary very large amounts of current. I have also used them on my PPP which supplies the whole system. But as every cord sounds different on each peace of gear you may or may not like any particular combination.
Nothing wrong with Transparent, but get rid of the R.G. equipment, are entire audio club has shed themselves of this garbage.
I have tried MANY power conditioners and there was none worse than Richard Gray...absolutely ruined the sound.
Just curious, are you plugging the power cords IN the RG unit? It was my understanding that the RG power conditioners work on the CIRCUIT wherever they are plugged in...In other words, you don't need to plug anything IN the RG piece.

i don't know what you guys are talking about. I have a RG 400 Mk1 unit for close to 10 yrs now & find that it is very non-intrusive on the sound in my system. I plug my pre & power directly into the wall into a 20A dedicated line & only my PS Audio PS300 is connected to the RG400 Mk1 unit. It does not seem to degrade the sound at all.... I bought the RG400 Mk1 unit to power only my front-end components; the intention was to never plug in the pre or the power.
I have been a big fan of this brand too. That is why I didn't understand the earlier comments.
Bombaywalla....I'm glad you're happy with your system, however, the Richard Gray stuff just ruined MY system. I both plugged the preamp in or not....daisy chained them or not...the results were always the same. The sound was MUCH better without them in MY system.
@Stringreen: what are you using now? Which RG did you have?

I have used a RG 400 Pro for over 10 years now and never a hiccup.

I will say that use the RG power cord on the RG conditioner. No need to upgrade that particular PC.  It is suggested to plug in all sources, except, the power amp. Plug the power amp into the wall outlet for best outcome.


Keep me posted & Happy Listening!

I have the RG 600S (replaced a Nordost QB4) and it works just fine.
RGPC products will not steal current from your system, in order, to operate properly.
Sidenote;
the nordost QB will work fine if used in an all Nordost system.
the Transparent power conditioners are fine as well, if used, in an all Transparent system.
