Is there a way of measuring to see if you actually even really need a power conditioner or power regenerator? I have a 20 W dedicated line to my stereo and, aside from buying something and trying it out to see how it sounds, would like to know if there is a way of knowing in advance.
Hence, I was wondering if there is a way to measure if there is noise (and the need for a power conditioner) or unstable power (and the need for a power regenerator).
I only have a Strata integrated amp and CD player that does not matter anymore since I have Tidal and Spotify Connect as a backup.
On another note but not as a main thought, I’m curious if there is a small unit (2 or max 4 outlets) that is affordable.
I tried a Furutech conditioner over a decade ago and it made no sonic difference. And I used to have a Surge protector as part of my 20 amp dedicated line in my old house 15 years ago.
Thanks in advance
