That looks a little expensive: http://compare.ebay.co.uk/like/130733298966?var=lv<yp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes&var=sbar&_lwgsi=y&cbt=y&device=c&adtype=pla&crdt=0&ff3=1&ff11=ICEP3.0.0&ff12=67&ff13=80&ff14=63

Here is my experience of conditioners:

- The Tacima is a reasonable one for the money.

- It is often better to plug power hungry amps directly into the wall, as cheap conditioners can strangle the sound.

- Benefits vary according to how good the power supply is on the component and how dirty the mains is.

- Good conditioners cost a lot of money......check out Isotek if interested.

- If you see no improvement, it still gives a certain amount of surge protection.

- If it makes things look/sound worse, send it back.

- The alternative to conditioners are mains re generators and balanced mains transformers.....again can be big money.
