AudioQuest Niagara 1000

A $1000 'outlet strip'?  Apparently it's much more...a six-outlet AC-power filter/surge suppressor with one of those six outlets being rated for hi-current amps.

The two reviews I found...

...are highly positive.  Seems to me this 'long-tube' format would be a good way to get filtered power close to its using components, to which one could run very short powercords.

Any user opnions here?

I have one, but it doesn't do much for my system, but then neither have all of the other power conditioners I've tried. My AC gets bad in the evening hours after being top notch during daylight hours. Nobody can explain it. The power company says there should be no difference, but there is and has been for years and years.

Probably gets bad in the evening due to people being home (presumably after getting off work) and using appliances, TV's, HVAC, etc. My AC is definitely worse in the summer months too (everyone using their air conditioners).

If that's the case, have you made sure to use line/voltage regulators as well?

See if you can still get on the IFI Ipurifier tour. Two of those solved my AC distortion problems. I had to wait till midnight before to get rid of the AC hash. 99 dollars each.

I tried one and sent it back.  I couldn't really hear anything different.  Also its bulkiness and configuration didn't suit.

FWIW, I also tried one of the iFi's and that did nothing for me either.

I have not had experience with this unit but installed a Torus wall mount unit for my system.  They have a 240V input (or optional 120V) and output 120V portable unit depending on your system demands.  I use a smaller 6A unit for my TV to isolate it from the rest of the system.  http://www.toruspower.com/  This is not balanced power, which requires special building permits, and this non-balanced configuration is the most effective benefit for my system.  I had horrid power issues.  Computer switch power supplies being the worse!

I have used many other systems.  Audience Adept Response TSSD was the second most effective in filtering out stuff but not as good.

PM for more information on my system, if interested.
