How does it achieve the filtering?
I am always looking to include on of these type of products in my setup... I find there a few categories of products. For me, the very best is something like PS Audio power regenerators where AC current is transformed into DC and then re-constitued to VERY CLEAN AC. Those are REALLY expensive, but they are great. On the other end, you have your typical house voltage regulators where the end result is that you may lose dynamic range because, when the equipment suddenly demands a lot of power, you may end up with deeps and opposite response to what you expected (not really sure how to explain this, if there is interest I can find more technical info). And then there is a lot of 'in betweeners'.
So I'm curious as to how this achieves the filtering? Have you tested it and found it 'improves' sound? I have read you for years now and I loved how you always insist that you don't 'sell smoke' or 'air' (or bullshit! to be plain and direct
). And I have read you state things like: "fellows, if you are going to spend $500 on fuses, I can charge you that and put more expensive ones in our products"... same for $1K power cables... somewhat insinuating that those are snake oil and that it really makes little difference (to which I have always agreed to and loved that about your stance).
Now you are selling the "$500 fuse" or the "$500 power cable" in the form of a DC cleaner? And now this is somehow NOT snake oil and actually affects sound because now it's you selling it and not the 'fuse' or 'cable' company?
So, can you please elaborate more on the technical features of this power strip "on steroids"?
I really would buy into such a product and your price range seems really reasonable, depending on what is happening 'under the hood'. But if half the price of the unit is the power connectors (assuming almost 50% volume discount for the price you have listed above) I wonder if it really makes sense to have $200 worth of connectors, on a $600 retail equipment? After R&D, profit margin, etc. and $200 in connectors, chassis and other cosmetic parts (like nice screen) how much really is left for the actual 'filtering'?
I really want to give you the benefit of the doubt, but somehow I find it difficult with the latest product decisions other than the Evo line. I want to be convinced! I'd love to be convinced! Please... convince me!!!
