Least Expensive Power Conditioner/Surge Protector That Won't Worsen Sound

I have an old Shunyata Hydra 6 that I'm sending off to Shunyata to repair. In the meantime, I'm curious - What's the least expensive power conditioner/surge protector that won't worsen the sound? 


I've already discovered that plugging my integrated directly into the wall sounds the best. But I have source components. I have liked the Shunyata, but just in case they're not able to get it back to like new shape, what are your thoughts? (I tried numerous PLCs at the time I bought it almost 20 years ago and I thought it, by far, sounded better than any other one I auditioned in my system, and that included the Hydra 8).


I see many users who have reported worsening sound when using the Audioquest PQ2 and PQ3.


Something like a Panamax PM 5300 or 5400?  Or the Furman Elite 15?


And what is the danger of under-voltage?


Ah yes, as erik mentions above . . . I still rigidly decouple the entire deal from energized during lightning storms.  But my power issues were interstingly enough not to do with electrical storms so much as reductions in power followed by surges.  That Audioquest seems to handle them in that no damage.  That didn't happen when I first moved into this place with no protection and I had a $$ Plinius repair bill to deal with.

Brick wall out of PA for $300, matched several-line conditioners in the $1500 

range andSterphile used to have it in class-B  which is respectable ,I bought 2 and find them pretty effective ,I upgraded mine by upgrading  several internal capacitors 

and installed a Furutech power cord to make it better still , most everything can be bettered if you look inside it ,whst most Audiophiles don’t realize is Thst on average 25% of the-cost goes into the build ,the rest R&D  overhead,and dealer mark up.

If they are doing it right, parts are marked up 5 times in manufacturing. The other costs you mentioned should be marked up 3 times, including labor. Then, that price is doubled twice before the point of purchase. The margins in audio are what makes it all go round. 

I avoid using the AQ Niagra high current outputs and now plug my amps directly into the wall socket- Proves to be sonically inferior through the AQ Niagra

To me this unit was a total waste of money .
