power conditioning question gentlemen

      I,m considering a power conditioner /surge unit ,Two sunfire subs,nu vista intergrated(draws some juice) ,transport,dac,tt, phono section (dc-ac i may just plug in wall)  .Dedicated 20amp run directly to room x 2 hospital grade rec. I have been looking into richard grays,furman ref,shunyata etc.I have a unique set up here in nor cal.I am completley off grid!,I run a serious solar and res set up with a genny back up.The power is pretty consistant although during changes in genny start up or at time it does fluctuate a little .I never hear it or have never measured a spiked it drops slightly during those milliseconds.I would like to snag a used one in the 1k range .

Furman's pro gear is very cost effective, and among the best surge protection you can buy if you get the line with series mode surge protection.

Richard Gray's is very expensive, but does a great job of cleaning up noise, however it's not a true surge/line protector. It's a resonant tank which does smooth out the power cycle to cycle, but won't really stop anything catastrophic.

Furman's home gear gets quite pricey.

If money is no object, and you never want to hear a bad power cycle I'd look at the Canadian PurePower, designed by the head of Jensen transformers, he knows his stuff really well.



    I have little fear of catasphophic failure .my system is only on when im listening.The furman ref is in my range i see them for a g used as the grays .but the core intrigues me because of the toroidial transformer .. surge may be an issue or even a ("under"  lack of power
surge lol) 
anyone ?

Your power setup is unique. If that were my situation, a used PSA Power Plant can be found in your budget. I found a PPP for $700 and no complaints. If it dies, it can still be refreshed at a reasonable cost.

Power conditioning, can be a contentious subject like cable religion. 

My experience with a used PP, is positive. If you dont care for the perceived improvements, sell it. Can't imagine NOT listening to my all tubed setup thru regen power.I hear no sonic degradation with my entire system plugged in. Even the plasma is stunning on movie nights.

Table . Unique yes for here . I have a full ht room 120" epson 7-1 rips class d though .. As for my 2-2 its tricky i have alit of bks locked up in stuff and cables etc . I dont want to change my sound or power persa' i just want it available when i ask and have it protected on some level
