I know power conditioning, surge protectors, and something called distribution boxes have been discussed before, but I didn’t see much conclusion.
I have a decent panel, no real issues, extreme storms occasionally, and one major power outage in the last three years.
Local dealers were looking to sell me a Power Conditioner of some shape or form. IsoTek was recommended by a long time Naim dealer. Most others sells and recommend AudioQuest.
I’ve heard Naim’s POV is no power conditioning. I’ve also read a lot of naysayers about surge protectors on previous threads.
Seems funny to have all this gear plugged into a $15 power strip. I thought it was a no-brainer to get a conditioner, but now I’m uncertain.
Currently I have my kit plugged into a standard surge protector power strip. Bad?
Should I buy a conditioner?
Should I buy a fancy surge protector?
I’m in the US. If a distribution box is ideal, which is recommended?
