Speaking of Christmas - or whichever holiday floats your boat, I don't want any trouble here lol - I got my filtering power strip a bit earlier than I expected, which is good since it'll allow me to familiarize myself with the new sound before I get all those cool tubes in a week.
Same product as - may his soul rest in peace - Acapella11 mentioned months back, this:
Yes, it's cheap; yes, it only has UK sockets (I live in France, use different plugs and still bought it, so it just takes a little creativity); no, I wouldn't use it with non-220-240V AC power; but yes, it makes a COLOSSAL difference!
Honestly, I had expectations that it would at least make a difference with the Little Dot plugged into it - after all, removing noise from power is never bad - but it's rare that a brand new product I add to my sound chain makes a such a difference that at the very first second of listening I'm like "Oh. I see. And I was missing this all these years, huh? There must have been something wrong with my head... Is this really happening? How can this sound so good? And for £30?!? Holy ****...!!"
Anyway, I won't go any further since this is largely irrelevant on this thread, but I strongly urge you to get a similar product. It made enough of a difference with just the LD plugged into it, but when I added the DAC to the filtering power strip, it felt like I multiplied the price of my system by 3... You may think I'm joking or overreacting, but you all know I usually don't muck around. The difference is HUGE and makes me wonder just why it took me that long to do something about my power... It feels like I'm listening to a different system right now, and it's better than mine!
Lesson learned: Filter thine wall power.
