Hammond 193L Choke Tweak Revisted

Recently I reevaluated some of the tweaks installed in my system. One being the the Hammond 193L choke tweak attribute to Alan Maher. (http://db.audioasylum.com/cgi/search.mpl?searchtext=Hammond+193L+choke&b=AND&topic=&topics_only=N&author=&date1=&date2=&slowmessage=&ip=&sort=score&sortOrder=DESC&sortRank=Forum&forum=tweaks). I have two in my system. I originally plugged them in the two power strips I use without much thought. One is a Emotiva CmX6 and a very modified Belkin pwr bar (mdl. no. F9D601-4) (DIY "Hydra" power conditioner @ www.10audio.com/projects.htm), both are plugged into a TrippLite line conditioner (mdl LC1800). At the time I just plugged them into the power strips, heard an audible improvement and forgot about them. Well last week I moved them around in the system and found that the one connected to the wall AC outlet and the other connected to the external linear ps for the Wyred 4 Sound Recovery USB reclocker (using a Liberator AC pigtail adpt.) sounded best to my ears by a huge margin. The sound is now even more dynamic, clear and detailed at less volume. I also replaced the 14awg ac cable with 12 awg and a bit better Hubbell ac plugs. I just ordered another choke for even more joy.

The point of of my post is this.: You're not finished until you have tested and experimented with a tweak until you have gotten all you can out of it.
