Best way to address power quality issues for electrostats...

I'm looking for the most cost effective way to ensure I get quality power to my Martin Logans. I've been told they shine when they're fed clean power. I'm not sure how to address this since there are many options. I'm open to suggestions....

I don't care much about music. What I like is sounds.

I think that is a truism. I know of few speakers that "shine" when fed a poor quality distorted signal.



If by "power" you refer to amplification, simply operate the amplifier in its linear range.

If its AC power, then use a power cord. If the filtering capacity of the power supply is insufficient, then I would buy a unit featuring an adequately designed power supply.

You are responding to the talk suggesting the very lucrative aftermarket, the real profit center in audio (literally).
