    In a previous thread I asked a question about my houshold voltage reading in at 115v-118v. Household . I was wondering would my setup benefit from a Monster Voltage Stabilizer. Everything in my setup except my amp states Power requirements of 120v.

    No Kevin, that's actually a fairly decent voltage you're getting. FWIW, have you tried measuring it using a decent VOM to compare the numbers to what your Monster unit is giving you?

    Actually, most stabilizers have a rated tolerance of plus or minus 5 volts – i.e., a 10 volt variance. You’re at a mere 3 volts now, so why spend money for something you really don’t need?

    If you do decide to go this route, you might want to consider Furman Sound. They’re pioneers in this field and the industry standard for power conditioning products for professional audio. They’re probably cheaper than the Monster products, too.
