Just back from a couple of hours of playing around with all sorts hifi. Quickly heard both the new little PMC's and iggleberts spendors, though I need more time with them to form an opinion so take both home this week for a couple of eves. Equally interesting was the insertion of a cheap Tacima line conditioner/6 way extension block in two systems. First one an all cyrus one, 8vs2/CD8x/PSXwith rega R5, second Supernait/CDX2 ProAc Studio 140. Clear difference in sound with both ... With the first (cyrus) system it added a very slight touch of refinement to treble manifesting itself in less granularity (though I dont want to overstate it as it really is not night and day difference!) but more relevant, it lost some leading edge detail and bass impact or in short ... drive with the tacima in line. With the Naims it was equally pronounced, reducing cymbal crashes more than I personally like and closing down the image, again I assume because of the reduction in high frequencies (Perhaps I just like a little bit of distortion). It also reduced impact and dynamics in the same way as with system 1. To sum it up, if you have a forward, hard edged system with harsh treble it may well be worth the 20 or so quid. In all other cases i'd stick to conventional means of connection to mains unless you find a product that does'nt 'sapp the life' out of your system such as this one (edit) does.
