I'VE ALREADY BEEN THROUGH THE ARCHIVES FOR INSTRUCTIONS BUT HAVE 2 QUESTIONS.HAS ANYONE USED THE PS AUDIO POWER PORT RECEPTACLE INSTEAD OF A HUBBEL AND HAS ANYONE PUT A SURGE PROTECTOR AT THE MAINS OR CIRCUIT BREAKER (SORRY NOT WELL VERSED IN ELECTRICAL MATTERS) ,ELIMINATING THE NEED FOR A SURGE PROTECTOR AT THE WALL OUTLET?
the number of questions you are allowed to post. Lucky you! No more than two questions allowed.
I use a Power Port and seperated the recepticals to provide a quality wall connection for 2 seperate dedicated power circuits. Both branch's then see an Ultimate Outlet and my gear then gets conditioned power from them. 1 line is for my amps and the other is for the front end gear. I like the PP for its quality but I made my own power strip using hospital grade outlets and star wired that, basicly because of cost's. PP's are the best of the best and I like them very much but can be a bit costly if your on a budget.
I also do have a whole house surge suppressor wired into my service panel however, that is only for a little peace of mind and not intended to totally protect sensitive electronics. They are more for motor driven appliances and do not eliminate the need for additional protection at the wall. That's where the Ultimate Outlets come into play for me. Most makers of the service panel type surge devices will reccommend a tiered approach to protection and you should consider putting some added protection on all your electronics with or without a panel unit. Your choice's for those devices are many and unfortunatly many dont do the job very well. I belive PS Audio products provide very good quality and some affordable choices for protection along with great costomer service. Good Luck
I use several of the PS Audio Power Ports and like them very much... i have tried several versions of the hubbel and P&S and prefer the PS Audio.... Have not tried the other high-end receptacles though. The connectors on the PSAudio are very positive!
I've contemplated the idea of the surge protector at the breaker box, but non are made for Audio enthusiasts and would probably sound like the Monster Power products (blech!) i would use Ultimate Outlets at the point of use!
Thanks for the info Chris andSAM...just kidding Sam, sometimes I'm in such a rush I forget to post properly...Thanks
