    Hi George.

    In one of the threads you had mentioned using some serious power conditioning. Would you mind sharing what you did on the power side?

    Cheers!

Basic Information

Audio System
Music Server(s):
Logitech Squeezebox Touch
Music Server Operating System:
Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite), Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)
Preferred Digital Interface(s):
USB, FireWire, S/PDIF Coaxial (RCA), S/PDIF Coaxial (BNC), S/PDIF TosLink, Ethernet (UPnP/DLNA), Wireless
Digital to Analog Converter(s):
HK-990 Dual Differential 24/192/Dragonfly
Digital to Digital Converter:
Musical Fidelity V-Link II
Preamplifier:
HK-990 (Integrated)
Amplifier(s):
HK990 (integrated)
Loudspeakers:
Martin-Logan Vistas (I know it used to say Vantages, but I get these two M-L speakers confused all the time. I have the Vistas WITHOUT the built-in self-powered subwoofers).
Interconnects:
Doesn't matter. They are all the same from the cheapest to the most expensive. They pass the signal, as they are supposed to do according to physics, without adding or subtracting anything.
Loudspeaker Cables:
Generally doesn't matter as long as they are under 25ft long and are of copper wire at least 14 Gauge or larger, they are mostly the same from the cheapest to the most expensive. There are exceptions, however. Some speakers, due to the reactive nature of their transducers (ESLs for instance) or their complex, multi-pole crossovers might be affected, SQ wise, by the cable used. But not all speakers are sensitive this way, and not all cables will effect a change in SQ for all speakers. There also doesn't seem any way to tell, other than trying different ones. My experience is that unless you are neurotic about this stuff, these small changes aren't worth worrying about.
Power Cables:
Don't make me laugh!

Line Filtering: 30-Ampere 120v to 120 volt isolation transformer with oil-filled capacitor LRC noise filtering on both the primary and the secondary side of the transformer. My entire system is powered by this.
