 Many people think otherwise. Certainly the PS Audio people do - but you could argue they are biased and are trying to sell their own power regenerators.Search online though and you'll see that PS Audio is not alone. I certainly wouldn't use a simple surge protector on high end audio equipment.  My recc is to plug the amp especially directly into the wall outlet and compare.
Has anyone experimented with different fuses in the power supply of the BHSE?   One of mine blew and since I need to replace it anyway, thought I would look into the cryo treated, etc. fuses.   (I learned a few years ago that everything in the electrical signal's path will affect the sound… audio and video is just your incoming AC converted to sound and picture.)
 Congrats on your BHSE. I got mine a few months ago and loving it. Now is that a standard (low cost) power bar you have everything plugged into?  If so, you should remove that and plug your gear directly into the wall.  Low cost power supplies reduce the current as power demands increase, thereby constraining your dynamics.  Not a good thing at all. If you don't want to use a high end power conditioner (e.g Shunyata) or regenerator (e.g., PS Audio), no power bar is...
Really?! You try reading it instead of posting a condescending remark.
Any chance we can learn what tubes David1961 is using is his bhse that make it sound so much better than stock, apparently?
Very odd - optical should not sound better than usb.Optical is restricted to a much lower sampling frequency. I believe no higher than a standard CD.You're probably comparing different recordings?Or the Mac USB input has some kind of inferior processing vs the optical.Or the source is corrupting the usb out.Or there's interference on the USB cable.
I shared similar feelings. What I gleaned through emails and a few calls with Justin, is that he cares and is a perfectionist. So you'll be getting a high high quality piece. And I wouldn't worry that he won't deliver. Be prepared to wait up to 2 years, I'd say, and it will come within that time. In terms if spares- I don't know enough to provide specifics, but justin already finds it difficult to source some parts. I don't know but isn't that a cause for future concern?
The answer you're looking for doesn't exist. Be prepared to wait -- for an uncertain period of time.When I ordered mine in spring of 2013, I was told it would be shipping in July of that year!I just got it a few weeks ago. So it's been a "little" late.But I still love it and don't regret it at all.I just hope there will be enough spare parts for the bhse owners. I've asked Justin what the plan is in this regard, but haven't gotten a response.Can any bhse owners chime in on...
I use a PS Audio P5 AC regenerator and have a low end Shunyata cord connecting it to the BHSE.I have not compared the sound with and without the P5 for the bhse specifically, but the P5 made a significant difference with the rest of my gear, so it can only improve the bhse.
The Woo WES is an example of an amp that is unusable with unbalanced inputs. I used to own one, and there was way too much noise and a kind of hum when using the RCA inputs. Jack Woo sent me new tubes but it wasn't that. The design just doesn't work with single ended inputs, it's mislieading to even have them.Anyway, the BHSE sounds great with either input. What I have noticed is that there is zero noise with the balanced inputs (volume at max, no source playing), and...
