Don't put your components between the speakers. I was stunned at the improvement in soundstage.

I know I put this on another thread but it bears repeating here: if your AC is good, plug that amp (or integrated) directly into the wall.
I had a different set of ICs and SCs and speakers when I got my PC conditioner and it was for the better. On the advice of another, I went directly into the wall and the improvement was wonderful. I went so far as to completely rearrange my PC situation and kept the conditioner for the ancillaries (TV, cable box, tuner and Blu Ray player) and the integrated and SACD player now go directly into the wall.
The performers are, at times, literally in my room, it is so believable. Again, who would have thought?
All the best,
Had similar results of nonoise. Was previously plugging amps and source gear into Transparent conditioners plugged into 15Amp receptacles. My local Dealer recommended I install dedicated 20amp outlets, assuming you have the space in your primary fuse box. I believe the contractor charged me $300 for the work.
Now the Amps are plugged directly into the dedicated 20Amp outlets and the 2 conditioners in the other two for all source components. The difference was significant.
Can anyone offer up the science behind the claims of superiority when there is nothing between the speakers, or more precisely to state what the problem is. If your speakers are at least a bit in front of your gear then it seems(for those with speakers that do not radiate out the back at least) that reflected sound should not be much of an issue since it would seem to have to bounce off the far wall and travel all the way back before interacting with the rack
