Hello all,I have been busy today so now is the first time to touch the keyboard. In answer to your interesting question jea48, I did a quick check and nothing is mentioned anywhere on the unit about it being UL Listed. My guess is that the cost and time for listing did not outweighs the number they expected to sell. Audio Prism felt that the number they would sell was not worth the cost to obtain the status. But that is just conjecture on my part. I appreciate all those who have stepped up to help move forward my original question. It has been very enlightening.So Speedskater, you are suggesting that the unit might have a "bootleg ground"? How interesting. I must say that I am not quite sure exactly what that means.I have an idea but I am not real clear that I can wrap my mind around it.Given all that has been posted before, are you saying that in spite of what I originally asked, perhaps my unit is functionally working correctly?Great news if that were to be true.I agree about why they put a rocker switch at all 4 of the outlets to change the phase. But perhaps it helps what ever is plugged into the socket to sound better.But again its just supposition on my part. Given how electronic equipment is designed it would seem somewhat redundant. Maybe its the Rolls Royce of Isolation Conditioners. Won't that be a hoot?

Hello everyone,You all have raised some good points and they are worth thinking about.In my original question I asked if anyone could do the same test a I did with an "outlet tester" plugged into their line conditioner and report back their findings.Should they come to the same findings as I did with their own outlet tester and power-line conditioner it would substantiate Elizabeth's comment "I think the device is just not built right to test power conditioners with complex innards." Especially given both Speedskater and jes48's informative scientific posts regarding the subject.I just wish we could get 'real-world' physical proof of the same findings as I got.Please, is there anyone who would like to volunteer to do the quick test on behalf of the group?
Yeah, I also noticed that same issue too. I will see what I can do but as you can fully understand its a real chore to unplug and get the unit out. But never the less I will do my best. So lets see what happens.Cheers
It would take a high resolution camera and studio lighting to puzzle out the wiring.
Well it's not a 'Separately Derived System'. In fact it's not a system at all, it's a portable, corded 'point of use' isolation transformer. If you ground the Neutrals, you will have to eliminate to polarity rocker switches.
