Try it and see. You've got nothing to loose as you can always plug the amp back into the wall. However, if it does work fine plugged into your PLC, you have gained at least some small form of protection and peace of mind. Sean
I agree with Sean. I had a Power Conditioner rated for 1875 watts at any of its 16 outlets, and it worked quite well when I had less resolving components. But it always caused a "thin character" in music along with a reduction in dynamics when I plugged my McCormack DNA-2DX (300 wpc, 8 Ohm)into it.
As the quality of my components improved, and I installed a dedicated AC system, the Power Conditioner became a distinct liability, and I finally sold it and plugged everything directly into dedicated outlets. I asked Steve McCormack about power conditioners, and he just flatly said "plug your amp directly into the wall". Good Luck, and Cheers. Craig
I tried plugging the amp in to the power conditioner. I did not like the results. My immediate first impression was that the glare was back. I think the verdict is in and I will plug the amp directly into the wall. I plan on adding some dedicated power eventually just haven't gotten a round toit yet. I'm anxious to see what dedicated power with dedicated neutral and isolated ground will do for my system, as I am skeptical of many tweaks until I actually try them.
