Default Re: Need a power conditioner

I've got the HS80's, the HS10 sub, and my PC (it has a 1KW PSU, but it definitely isn't drawing max power). I don't think anything else really needs to be plugged into the power conditioner. The other stuff is irrelevant to audio production, printer, router, cable modem. Hopefully you guys can recommend one that isn't $700+, cause if it's lower, I can buy a couple, and plug my guitar amps into them too.
A conditioner isn't necessarily going to fix all problems that exist within the infrastructure (circuit) of any given building particularly ground issues.

I trust you have a full understanding of what the "dirty power" issues in your building are so you are aware of what a conditioner may or may not fix.
