Ugh. This stuff seems pretty controversial.
One side says it sucks, the other says it's great.
I got the idea from seeing pics of the BPT BP3.5 opened up and liberal amounts of ERS used inside. Figuring this is the benchmark for power conditioners I thought I'd try it.
I don't know where you get the idea that the BPT3.5 unit is the benchmark for power conditioners. I've tried one and it limited dynamics, compared to a Sound Application Ref Linestage, the SA was head and shoulders above the BPT, IMHO.
ERS cloth neeed skill to apply correctly !!!! Too much, too much in the wrong places will deaden your sound... my example of a success was partial lining of a Theta GenIII preamp/dac... impressive to say the least ! The BIG mistake is covering parts with ERS, horror stories of early tweakers who covered their chipsets with ERS and the sound fell into a black hole, then had to try and remove it, a huge pain in the buttt... absolute nightmare... I put a small piece on the ground plane of my SuperclockII, about 1/5 of the back of the clock card, and a square on the transformer of the Superclock PSU... soooo clean.. no backwash from the clock into the early stages of the power supply... back when I was a fan of Spectron Amps (this was pre getting into Bel Canto digital and realizing the limitations of Spectron) I lined a good amount of a Musician II amp with ERS to good effect... the Spectron did clean up, big time, never lost its' inherent sterility though...
