LC-1800 Tripp Lite Power Conditioner Modification
AC voltage (electricity) through power lines is noisy and "dirty," musical subtleties
are masked and higher frequency harmonies are changed or lost. Any lights or
appliances turned on adds noise. Switches add noise Background EMF will add
noise, mainly clicks and pops.
The LC-1800 filters radio frequencies and the "background noise." The music
becomes clearer, now able to standout from the background noise since this noise
from the line is greatly lessened. You are able to hear a lot more. Besides
improving the clarity, the music takes on a smoother, more natural presentation.
The LC-1800 protects equipment plugged into the device against low AC voltage
(Brownouts) and high voltage surges which can damage transformers and power
supply parts in your electronic components. As the voltage varies, the output
to electronic equipment is kept constant. The modified LC-1800 will improve
the audio and video bandwidth, minimize background noise, stabilize voltage,
improve multidimensional effects to the sound stage, improve the sound and picture
from DVD players, and even improve the color and picture quality of televisions.
Most power conditioners reduce the high frequency response. The modified LC-1800
extends and focuses the high frequency response and improves harmonics.
I personally tried for a few days, a Panamax Surge Protector with line conditioning
before I bought the modified LC-1800, just for a comparison, to see if the Panamax
piece would provide results that were in the same ballpark ( It was also cheaper
than the LC-1800). Though the music did sound smoother with the Panamax, and
there was an effect on the music, Dave's modified LC-1800 was completely and
noticeably superior to it in not only smoothness, but also in silencing background
noise, providing increased clarity and detail to the music, with improved focus.
I returned the Panamax piece and bought the modified LC-1800.
