Thanks,
I thought he was looking to find out about Parasound products.When I re-read the post I see he was also talking about outlets and cheater plugs and powerstrips.As you had said cheater plugs are never a good idea.So I geuss that power is power in this case.

Oh yeah, this I know. I was just curious as to which'd last longer and not eff up. So I'll get any strip/cheater plug(if needed) available.

Now, back to the topic.. do the parasounds have a humming issue?

In reply to:

I have had a few from the little HCA-750, HCA-1500 and 2205 to my current Halo and with out a doubt the answer is no.....I could also go on about how AC power does make a diff but I have been down this road before on these forums. :-)

He was referring to Thasp's question "...do the parasounds have a humming issue"?

Answer? "only when they don't know the words." (insert rim shot here)

Parasound makes excellent amplifiers. If you're getting a hum out of your system now, there is probably a ground-loop issue or an issue with the way your home or that line was wired.

A used Parasound is a very intelligent way to save a lot of money and end up with a very high quality amp.
