    Is there a point of no return when it comes to quieting the noise from the socket? As it stands now, I can turn the volume up on my pre/pro with no signal and there is absolutely no noise coming from the speakers. I'm looking at adding a seperate line or two for my HT, but since I'm getting what seems to be no noise interference will I benefit.

    Hi,
    Last year after purchasing some new equipment,( one piece was a power hungry a/v reciever) i was at Best Buy where they had a a whole tablet of assorted equipment plugged into a normal power bar and attached to a pair of speakers.
    There was a mild but very audible hiss coming from the
    speakers. there was nothing playing in any of the equipment pieces so i was just hearing the electricity "i guess"

    The purpose of this demo was when the salesmant switched from the regular electrical outlet into an 8 socket Monster Power filter. then there was silence.

    The inputs are marked for the different equipment types.

    I bought it on the spot for $279.00cdn.
    If it doesn't solve your issue you can always take it back.

    Kevin, man, so stop trying to talk yerself into buying a UPS/voltage regulator/Blue Circle etc etc "magic box" so long as you enjoy a fairly low noise floor!

    I hope that your gear at least is plugged into a standard surge protector that comes with RF/EMI AC line noise filters.

    As long as you have proper surge protection and can't hear any noise, you likely don't need any additional filtering.
