RE: Incoming AC legs NOT created equal...

I just supervised an installation of four home runs, dedicated lines, in a client's listening room each run made with 10ga, wire and outfitted with Shunyata AC outlets, and all run from the same phase...I have not had time, though, to really evaluate the system as he has some guests temporarily staying at the house,


A few questions if you don't mind.

10ga wire? 10-2 with ground NM-B cable, (Romex)?

Were the parallel home runs separated from one another or pulled in a clustered group?

Approximately what is the average length of the home runs from panel to outlets?

Were the home runs kept away from parallel run/s of lighting circuits? Especially load side lighting circuits fed from dimmers?

If you get the chance will you run the noise test with the dedicated circuits used feeding the equipment and with only one dedicated circuit to power the equipment. Do you have something you can use to introduce noise on just one dedicated line and then check to see if the noise intensity is the same on the other 3 dedicated branch circuits?
