I already wrote this on this thread so sorry for repeating myself but Burson specifically said a power conditioner would not be advised.
I do not think a power conditioner would do the job here. I am not an expert in this field but you may need a voltage regulator or something like that. Or maybe you went too hardcore on your electric system :))
My experience with Conductor and PS Audio Duet Center power conditioner was not good. It really affected the sound in a bad way. More power filters / conditioners in series are only doing worse. Burson confirmed and told me that Conductor already has a five steps filtering system and another power conditioner would not be advised :
Yes, the conductor features a 5 stage filtering power supply. Therefore, we don’t recommend the use of external power conditioners. Thanks for your interest and your honest feedback
Read this on my thread here for more info, or on my blog here.
A power regenerator (as Ps Audio Power Plant x) would be better than a power conditioner, I think, but too expensive (imo) . Maybe a high end power conditioner would also be better and not affect the sound in a bad way.
I see people here that did not have any degradation with the sound with their power conditioners even if in theory they were inferior to the PS Audio Duet center.
All I am saying is that I had problems with it and the producer specifically told me that power conditioners aren't recommended with their product, so you should be suspicious and test it yourself before buying a new power conditioner for it.
(Power Plants / regenerators are not power conditioners so they are good ... I think )
