That Brickwall is well respected in the HT/speaker crowd. Though, for low power usage like a source + headphone amp you can also get an isolation transformer for a similar price (i.e. Tripp Lite IS500), which in theory should give you even better power and possibly better audio. A huge YMMV here. I snatched a pricier Furman iso transformer on eBay and it made my system sound good during the day as it is at night. Previously, I always bothered why I get better sound at night when I supposedly should be more tired and less analytical.

it'd be nice if the tripp lite had some more outlets.

 

i'l like to see how these 3 compare:

Just did another tweak. Cleaned my cables with Ultrasonic Cleaner then used a hair drier to remove/dry out the excess water. Result is metal parts got more shiny(oxidation removed) and music seems to flow smoother and improved clarity in microdetails(very slight improvements).

Just in case you were serious, and if you took off the cable insulation to expose the copper for "cleaning," you'll want to seal and shield that copper again right away or the cables will begin oxidizing again immediately.

A little oxidation along the outside surface and away from contact points won't make any difference, but if it rusts through and separates the OFC copper then resistance will greatly increase or even cut off the signal. Once rust is formed, you can't get "copper" back... It's a molecular conversion. Clearing off rust is removing material that used to be copper/iron/silver/etc.

And why post on this amp thread anyway?
