... expensive ... hm - we are in the BHSE ball park - what do you expect :wink:

My feeling: every decision for one device comes along with a cascade of further expensive but logic components - may it be nf-cables, power supply or what ever.

However, switching on my music I am immediately aware of the fact that I became a music connoisseur instead remaining a music-fast food-junkie. The smile on my face... priceless!

My systems are in two different rooms so not really an option for me.

@DrJeckyl look for a good dealer and test a power conditioner first. i had a burmester 948 that had a good effect at my old adresse (zürich kreis 4) and now hat my new home (zürich kreis 10) has no effect and i don't use one. here in zürich power is very stable but on the high side. a couple of years ago they changed from the 220 volt standard to 230 volt (and so some amps - particular old tube amps for 220 volt - run a bit hot). i measure the voltage from time to time and it's allways between 235-237 volt, that's technical ok because 220-240 volt is the target. if you want a power conditioner then go for a good one that regenerates the power and not only have some passive filters in it.

Hi rumina,

thanks for your response - I live in Zurich Hottingen, need to check the un-treated quality of the power in my flat during critical times of the day. Maybe first step towards identifying the real need for a power regeneration device is testing my amp at 3am without any noise creating devices on in my flat. If I recognize a significant improvement, I really need to think about cleaning then.

Cheers

I use the PS Audio P10. I needed the power to also feed my speaker power amp which is on 24/7 (about 100 Watts idle, up to 300 Watts in Class A/B mode, 700 watts as full Class A mode), my Carbon (70 watts) DAC (35 watts), Mac Mini and Rednet on the HDPlex LPS (90 watts)..
I previously posted advantages wrought by a PS Audio P3 power regenerator: http://www.head-fi.org/t/439657/headamp-blue-hawaii-special-edition/7275#post_11705026. Since that time, I finally got around to running dedicated lines from my breaker box to my listening room, upgraged various power cords and sold the P3 because it actually could degrade the sound of the new power configuration. Without the P3, again, I am more vulnerable to diurnal variations of the quality of the power I receive, but the best sound without the P3 is substantially better than the best sound with it.
.
I have not regretted removing the P3 from my system after running direct lines for my audio system to my breaker box. This was a real winner in terms of price/improvement in sound quality. I also recommend really good power cables (I use Anticables' best) and ferrites applied to those cables.

i replied to you. it's either a fuse issue (there are 4 fuses on the back of the power supply) or all of the trim pots were turned to one direction causing the red LEDs on the circuit board to go off

Hi Justin,

It has been 2 weeks since your last replied. Could you please please check your pm frequently?

Thanks

Hi guys,
New here. Going to put in a deposit for The headamp website says the wait times currently are 4-8 weeks. Is this accurate in people's experience or is it still around a 6-12 month wait?
Believe there's a ready unit with Addicted to audio in Australia..

Hi there,

it seems to be longer - I ordered mine end of May and still waiting. However, this is part of the game and should not stop you from ordering - what are a couple of months waiting time for an amp that will provide true pleasure for many years from then on :wink: Buying an alternative amp would always rise the question of "what if...". If you have a better source for BHSE (Addicted to Audio), then go for it.

Cheers

Robert
