I’ve got a Dectet arriving today, and have a question about placement of equipment on that circuit, as in whether or not some some miscellaneous electronics should go on - or off - the Dectet. Secifically…
I have a single AC outlet (with PSA Power Port Classic installed) that all of my hifi gear connects to. Unfortunately, that same outlet must also accommodate a few other non-audio devices. That includes a TV, soundbar, a cablebox, a universal remote repeater, a router, and a cablemodem. Oh… and a Sunyata Venom Defender (power conditioner)
My default plan - upon receiving the Dectet - was to hang the Dectet off the top socket of the Power Port, with all the hifi gear connected to the Dectet. The other stuff I listed above would hang off of a powerstrip connected to the bottom Power Port socket. I understand this is not ideal. But currently I have no choice. Long story there…
My question is, would it make sense to move some of that non-hifi gear off the powerstrip, and onto the Dectet? And if so, which pieces?
The TV, cablebox and soundbar are all in standby mode when the hifi gear is being used. So I assumed those would be the least likely candidates for moving. And I thought the Venom Defender would stay on the power strip, as it’s conditioning everything on that strip. But maybe the router, cable modem, and universal remote repeater should be moved to the Dectet’s Isozone I’ve reserved for digital gear?
Thanks for the help.
PS - for the more visually inclined, here’s a text diagram of what I’m describing…
Power Port Classic (top socket) -> Dectet -> sub1, sub2, mono amp1, mono amp2, DAC
Power Port Classic (bottom socket) -> Power strip -> TV, soundbar, cablebox, router, cable modem, universal remote repeater, power conditioner
Power Port Classic (top socket) -> Dectet -> sub1, sub2, mono amp1, mono amp2, DAC, router, cable modem, universal remote repeater
Power Port Classic (bottom socket) -> Power strip -> TV, soundbar, cablebox, power conditioner
