Well in the USA, PS Audio is the go to for audiophiles. There may be industrial versions also available, and in other countries.. But here, IMO... PS Audio has the market all to itself now.
I'm checking here to see if anyone else has had a similar experience. There are times when my system sounds really good. Great detail, space, depth, all the buzz words. Often I'll look at my wife and I'll say 'wow it's really sounding good tonight.' Other times things sound muddy with the detail and soundstage being diminished. This back and forth has happened so many times...it makes me wonder am I just hearing things? But my wife genuinely agrees that some nights the system sounds better than other nights. I'm guessing this is attributable to fluctuations in power here at the house? We live in a very well built 1940's house in a smallish town in Louisiana. The elements here are tough...esp the summer when folks have to keep AC going 24/7. I wouldn't call this town's infrastructure top notch by any means, so I'm wondering if the sonic fluctuations are caused by power fluctuations and would something like a regenerator help alleviate that?
This issue was discussed by Steve Guttenberg. Some of it has to do with the human element. On some days our senses are more in tune and the music just sounds better. I have days like that all the time. I recently went though a period where I could not listen to my system for a few weeks. It just sounded blah! Looking back, I was under a bit of stress at the time. Now all is well but I still have days where it does not sound good. I have discussed this with a couple of other people and they experience this as wellAlthough, I have no doubt that fluctuations in power can affect the sound.
Tyson. No softening of sound or loss of dynamics with PS audio device ? charles
Very true! Back when I drank single malt scotch I would notice the same thing.
Mood is key for good listening no argument there. However steady voltage and clean power is key to best performance. Started with one dedicated line which improved sound. Added a power conditioner and better yet. Then went to four 20A dedicated lines off a sub panel. Added power conditioner for each line. That enabled my to have one dedicated line for Digital only, one for mono block amp and one for the other mono block. The last one for preamp, phonostage and TT. I thought that using four dedicated lines as described would eliminate the need for power conditioning. WRONG. Using four. No going Bach just listening to Bach more often. charles
