    I just bought a Monster MP HTS3500 line conditioner. I haven't received it yet, but I am wondering what kind of difference this will make in my theatre system. I bought it mainly because I have a small refridgerator in my dorm room that pops my speakers everytime the condenser turns on. I also wanted the protection policy.
    First of all, the line conditioner will make that popping noise go away, right?
    Secondly, is my audio/video performance going to change?

    Power conditioners are a touchy subject, much like cables. I am using a Monster Power 2500, and really like it. I'll divide my observations into objective and subjective for the benefit of those who don't think power conditioners make a difference:
    Objective:
    No more dips in music when refrigerator kicks in.
    No more dimming of TV when refrigerator kicks in.
    Fuse doesn't blow when I turn on my receiver!
    Subjective:
    Less background noise coming from speakers
    Slightly better TV image.
    Soundstage moved "up" a few inches. A vocalist in the center of the soundstage sounds a few inches taller (more realistic, actually) than before.
    Hope this helps,
    Max
