    2 easy ones:
    1) I have looked into Equi=Tech, Balanced Power Technologies, Furman, Smart, Audio Power, and PS Audio. In only 1 place have I seen any mention that balanced power may not work with "some" components that expect the neutral and ground leads to be close in potential. Anyone out there have a feel for this?
    2) Stupid question, but I gotta ask. [​IMG] Balanced power is an equal 60V hot to ground, and 60V neutral to ground. Do I get any benefit if I plug in a 2 prong component? Or does the component need a 3 prong cord? (In other words, does the *creation* of balanced power in the unit itself give the benefit, or the fact the I'm sending balanced AC out to my components give the benefit?) If that makes sense!
    Thanks!
