When you think of electrical power and computers, the quality of the power is always an issue. Computers are very sensitive to poor power quality and so is musical equipment, being computer-type devices themselves. I haven't done a huge amount of research but it wasn't hard to see the benefit of buying a really good Balanced Power Conditioner. One that I liked a lot is the Furman P-2400 IT. Let me just paste here a little of what they say on their web page. The Furman P-2400 IT is a symmetrically balanced power conditioner, designed for the most critical, ultra-low noise installations, provides unparalleled AC noise reduction and 100% isolation from the power grid for the lowest noise floor possible. The Furman P-2400 IT features over 80 dB of common-mode and over 50 dB of differential-mode noise reduction for recording, mastering, and broadcast studios, or anywhere noise-free performance is critical. With 100% isolation from line, neutral, and ground, the P-2400 IT is also ideal for breaking AC ground loops without rewiring or hiring an electrician. Sounds good or what?!
