PLC- Monster HTPS 7000 , cryoed wall receptacle.
This PLC will breath life into any system, no matter how humble or grand.
It has 12 outlets, 4 for power amps, 4 for digital components, two for video components and two for analog components. It features balanced power for all outlets except for the amps and has 5 stages of power filtering.
When I plugged my amps into this Monster my speakers threw a soundstage so huge that my installer thought I had the center channel on while I was listening in stereo. The great thing about this PLC is it can upgrade an entire system.
Balanced power is important in NYC since judging by the readout my power is normally around 122 or 123 vs. the ideal 120.
I feel you should build a system from the ground up, otherwise you won't know what your components are really capable of and waste dollar after dollar trying to get a sound that has nothing to do with your components.
You can audition this for 30 days from most dealers. I knew after 30 seconds this unit was not leaving my system.
