I do. You can imagine as a manufacturer for the last 46 years we've had a lot of 'AC power conditioners' come through the shop. Michael Percy, who was a dealer of ours a long time ago before he started selling high end audio parts, clued me into the Elgars.since you are praising it.....do you actually own an elgar?
The decimal point in the display is a little hard to see - my guess you are seeing 199.99.What kind of numbers should I be getting out of the Trifield, just plugging it into an outlet without any power conditioner. I just got one and want to figure out whether it is defective. I am getting close to or over the maximum number (19999) in my house circuits. I have two different panels. One shows over the maximum in different outlets and the other shows 14000-19000. Thanks, Larry
Thanks. I think it is defective. I am getting the maximum number 1with four dashes (meaning over 19999) in many of my outlets. I had Art Kelm at the house a decade ago and he measured the line noise with his equipment. Nothing out of the ordinary. I haven't changed things in the electrical system since then.

If that’s not the case, you have astonishingly noisy lines. Normal readings are ~200, with 20 being very quiet, 500 pretty noisy.
How all that manifests itself in SQ is system dependent.
Do any regenerators, the Audioquest filter, or your Elgar, claim to reduce 5th harmonics that might be on the line?Dunno about that but the specs don't show how well it can attenuate the 5th harmonic that might be on the line.
I know that the Elgar and the PSAudio regernators can reduce or eliminate the 5th harmonic.Do any regenerators, the Audioquest filter, or your Elgar, claim to reduce 5th harmonics that might be on the line?
That has not been measured, or discussed at all, in this thread.
Does the Elgar reduce harmonics on the line generated by fluoresent lights in the house? NO! Just shutting them off, along with light dimmers, is common knowledge.
To the latter- Yes. To the former, the Elgar reacts to 'other AC distortion , EMI/RFI, and noise originating within the house after the incoming AC.' It employs a feedback loop and is comparing its output to a 60 low distortion sine wave oscillator. The resulting output is a sine wave with THD of less than 0.25% under full load.The Elgar only effects the incoming line, not interaction between sources of analog and digital components, or other AC distortion , EMI/RFI, and noise originating within the house after the incoming AC.
Does it have power factor correction which is very important?
Naturally nothing will have zero distortion. I suspect the warmup time depends on the regenerator. Newer ones use class D amplifiers which have no warmup time at all.Regenerators do not generate a perfect sine wave with zero distortion. They also have a warm up because of the amplifier inside.
Apologize, I was off on a road trip to Asheville. Love the Blue Ridge Mountains.Do you think the playback with the Denali on the amps is more natural and real. Accurate to the source, and accurate as far as reproducing what instruments and voices really sound like.
Or is it more an allusion that stimulates the senses. Creates an excitement. Its not part of what the musicians tried to create, but its enjoyable to the listener.
Very nice Al. FYI, that metal conduit for your new line can be had in a mumetal version.
How is the grip of the outlet?
