Hello All,

After working out a DVD player issue I have come to the conclusion that I need a line conditioner.

I have an old Panamax now which isnt quite cutting it....

Anyone have any recommendations for a good moderately priced unit?

I use Monster and am pretty happy with it, they can be had at some pretty good prices. Tripp Lite and Belkin are a couple good choices also.

I just bought a Panamax but haven't cracked open the box yet. What was your problem?

It seems odd to me that a line conditioner would fix a line voltage problem .

They may read the in coming voltage but they do not stablize the voltage. You would need a a voltage stabilizer to do that.

Get whatever kind of power conditioner that your friend lent you to try. If it fixed your problem then it should be good choice. What kind was it?

I stand corrected. Thanks much for the education.
Someday I will know all this.

I guess the device I used from my friend was just a conditioner...he had a Belkin and it did the job.
So I am assuming the power in my basement is just dirty.

Poodleman, see Tarun's other thread with the original problem.

Like Wid I can't believe it is a power conditioning issue, but I guess it won't hurt to try. I have a TrippLite HTPowerbar10 which gives me good surge protection and each bank is isolated from the others.
