   A whole system conditioner or isolation transformer, multiple conditioners. Both ?
   Then dedicated circuits one or several ? Should all power cords be of the same manf ?
    I know the answer do you. Post away.

Ideally I would go for multiple dedicated lines. One for all of my digital components to isolate the noise they generate, one for my line level components that pretty much draw a constant load and at least one of the power amps (and possibly more depending on how many you have (mono blocks or added sub amps) and how much they each draw.

I currently have all TWC power cords, not because I want to have consistency, but because they turned out to work best in each situation.

Likewise I can see where different types of conditioners could work better in different situations, or there could be a single unit out there that does it all, you just have to try and see what works for you, both performance and budget wise.

None! I still have an Uberbuss and variety of manly power cords (TWL, Kaplan) laying around but don't need any of them now.

Charles,

That's an interesting way to phrase it, "I know the answer. Do you?"

Of course I know the answer. My answer is only applicable to my situation.

My Uberbuss is enough for my needs in my system in the US. I so far haven't felt the need for it in my system in Taiwan, but that could some day change.

One of these days I'll fill out my TWL loom with a pair of XLR interconnects.

I have 2 dedicated lines, one for high power (amps) and the other for low level stuff (pre, cd, TT etc). I am NOT putting in a 3rd  Duh!

Well I realized I have to confess to using a TWL cord and the Uberbuss just for the DHT filament supply, as unfortunately it isn't supercap powered (yet!) like the rest of the LIO. It does sound very good!

   I'm looking to have installed {4} lines off a sub panel. One 30A for amps, 0ne 20A for preamp, TT and BSG QOL. One for 15A for digital and one extra. Now using one 15A dedicated line foe all.
  Dave is this overkill ? I am using Two Ubers, one for analog one for digital with a Digibuss plugged into one dedicated 15A line. Using two Ubers made a difference over one for me.
   What size breakers and for what do you recco Dave ?

After many years of tweaks, cables and system changes, I've come to realize how important the role of electrical quality plays in sound quality.

I just had Dave build me a new 10 outlet Uber with his DigiBuss integrated for 4 of the outlets along with Pete's TWL Silver Statement power cord feeding it.   Dave also added some new magic to address RFI/EMI.  I'll let Dave explain that but I will say that my system has never sounded better.

Thank you Dave!

And who is the dumbass for not taking pictures?  That would be me.  😕

Anyway, what I built for Mike is the fruit of 8 years of work on the same basic platform (da BUSS).  I have made about 30 changes to the initial design over the years to produce the best possible product.  No 'set it and forget' it here.

Pete's cables, in particular the TWL 7+ Uber cable, are things of wonder when paired with the latest iteration of the UberBUSS.  I am so glad that Pete was placed in my life.  Great friend and a "hound for the sound".  I've watched the development of his cables over the last few years and I can't think of another "no brainer cable" out there.

Enjoy. Mike. It gets better for a while longer.

I love this business.  Thank you, Mike!
