Power Conditioners, Isolators and Regenerators

Audio Federation Dealership Magazine Music Guide Blog



This page lists power conditioners in the order of highest price to lowest. The list may or may not be in the order of highest quality to lowest.

That said, also note that power conditioners may improve something about the power getting to your equipment, but this says nothing about whether it makes that equipment sound better... or worse.

Typically power conditioners increase dynamics and lower background noise at the expense of microdynamics, emotion and that toe-tapping pacing, rhythm and timing.


Use the ears, Luke.
