Actually reminds me of something Nicholas Tesla would have invented!

Very curious to hear your thoughts on this. I’m a big fan of HFC and have been eyeing this conditioner for quite some time.

Still burning-in, but I like what I hear so far.
I have everything, including my mono amps and plasma TV, plugged into this monster.
You hear the terms - veils lifted, 3-D imaging, etc.
That's what I'm hearing and I assume it will only get better.
One thing nice is that the power cords plugged into it seem to react the same - whether they are inexpensive and expensive cords.
So I'm thinking it will save me the cost of using expensive cords on everything feeding into it - we'll see.
Also, may experiment with the grounding posts provided on the conditioner.
Rick Schultz told me they also are routed through the massive magnetic Waveguides.

Thanks for the impressions. Like all other HFC products, this should go through some major changes over the next few weeks. Keep us posted.

You can read about the concept of Magnetic Induction on the High Fidelity Cables website.
Basically, a powerful focused magnetic field forces electrons to the center of the cable, avoiding distortions from skin effect, RMI/EMI.
I don't really understand it, but love the audio results!
Thanks

Thx.
Interesting story on their website.
Curious about how they realize this effect in their cables.

Incredible looking power / line conditioner. I read where the elite series weighs in at 178 lbs. so I'm assuming this bad boy has to be around 100 - 125 lbs.

If you're up for a little experimenting with performance, you might consider removing the coupling discs from under the footers first making sure the footer are fastened tight to the LC's baseplate and then let it settle into the subflooring for a week or so without any movement whatsoever to see if you hear any improvements.

I can't tell much about the footers design or their materials, but if you do try this experiment, make sure the line conditioner is already positioned where you prefer it to be for a long time. Because if my hunch is correct, you're gonna' hear a series of little but still distinct improvements over time and you'll never want to move it or touch it again - implying you'll wish you had placed it in your preferred location from the start.

But it's just a hunch.

Look like a high frequency passive conditioner. My thought is a good product
Advice avoid SW psu devices into it. As it cleans these will also pollute.
I’m curios as our site is bette then our hearing do this ok ?
just use it for your tv and cable only
Use it and comment compared to not using it. Let us know of you can see a better image when used. I’m guessing it will be a notable improvement.
I noticed this on other power conditioners
