Running an Isotek Aquarius for all gear except amps and subs. Highly recommended. The change in sound quality was like a component upgrade. In my system/to my ears, replacing the stock Isotek Premier power cord with a Venom HC and subsequently an Alpha NR v1 power cord provided another noticeable improvement in the sound. I was running the Alpha direct from wall to amps (these include a Hegel H200) but now use a Delta NR v1 on the amps. Tried Pangea AC9 and Cullen Crossover (v1) but prefer the Shunyata cords,

So, I bought a decent mains cable (Furutech DPS 4.1), plus QSA fuses, plugged it into my UK mains socket, and no problems since. My house is only 10 years old, so chances of substandard wiring being the cause are minimal.
Saying that, I've recently upgraded to an Isotek EVO3 Sirius for my digital sources, and am reaping the rewards it offers. I have not yet however tried the Hegel with it.
