  1. Paul, besides the items that you raised, how much does AC power come in play? With so many high-end, high-power drawing, noise sensitive equipment sharing the buildings common AC power infrastructure – is there a big impact to sound quality? I know PS Audio is deploying their own Power Regenerators, but it’s not like I see many of your competitors also deploying your power products.

    1. When we go to a show we typically drag along a half dozen or so Power Plants for those exhibitors that come running to us in a panic. The hotel power is awful and Power Plants have saved the day for more than a few.

  2. It should be easier to set-up in hotel rooms, now that everyone can access
    a copy of ‘The Audiophile’s Guide’ along with it’s accompanying CD 🙂

  3. When you are experienced in listening at home you can at least imagine the differences of reproduction nature: colour, dynamics and space. But beginners probably could get the wrong image.
