Very happy with the Silver Serpent. 
Power conditioners .... improve VIDEO?
It's pretty shocking until you see it; improvements in image depth, noise, colors and black levels. The level of improvement depends on how bad the signal is in the first place, but improvements are obvious even with high def media. If you can swi...

Power Conditioners/Voltage regularts for 230v
