Yeah, you can tell everyone is selling them by the way all the audio classifieds are just jammed with them.... Some of the most respected names in audio use them. It is, like many other things, about implementation. Of course there are still those confined by their out of date dogma...they can't be helped.
To each his own. At least your opinion is based on experience...
Power conditioners can actually lower the noise in a SMPS depending on it's design. There's some things happening with change of reactance in frequency ranges they operate in, and the ability to provide a shunt to some of the noise. Some SMPS units have weak, interfering, input filters, others do not.
Mac Minis are 2 prong no ground. I think they charge the battery while plugged and run off the battery?
I made a terrible drawing of a path that shows how a Mac Mini can have a path taken out of the equation if the plug is reversed, if it's interacting with other equipment in this manner. You can see how this loop won't form if you switch hot/neutral. SMPS's vary on how this works; there's numerous wiring configurations. As you can see it might be possible to have a path on the neutral as well, depending on your other equipment.
Really, on battery power? Hm.. well that's interesting. Seperate or same batteries?
