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 .
thoughts??

Thanks man now thats is some good info .. How about these core units they are 60/60 out of phase or something like that ... 1800 w is 1500 bks mark seemed to tjink it would work well 
thanks again for your time 
I ditched power conditioners after I installed Furutech GTX-D duplex. But I only need 2 ac outlets. I now go directly into the wall duplex.  Substantially cleaned/opened up the all facets of sound reproduction in a costly system... If you need more get another. That leaves power surge protection. Had an audio/electrical engineer build me a coulpe of small wall plug in surge protectors that can be plugged into any outlet on the same circuit as your equipment without interfering with that equipment. Any outlet. even rooms away if on same circuit. Just had a humongous electrical storm in central NY. You may have read about it. House grid never suffered. So I think they work. Charged me $40 apiece. That's all. Might be something you can get commercially.
Parallel surge protectors are not all that, and I've seen them fail en mass. Not pretty.

First, they age and you have no idea how much. Second, they are slow. Third, their effectiveness can be compromised by the impedance of the electrical wiring. Lastly they may not even work.

Yeah, ok, maybe they sound better ( I doubt it) but for absolute protection it's series or nothing.

In addition to that, parallel units are slow. They take time to react. Series do not. They are designed as low pass filters, which means that a fast signal like a lightning strike can't pass through before it clamps. A parallel unit, most cheap, will let the spike pass before it clamps.  Repeatedly.

Best,

Erik,
If your response is regarding my plug in surge protectors.. It made me call the engineer who built them for me. He said he built individual low pass filters. I don't know. He's has about 4 different engineering degrees. nuclear, electrical, mechanical and audio. Hes 72 years old and still active in all of them. He does contract work for NASA and Audio Resaearch among others. You gotta believe someone don,t you?
