outlets are isolated and are for digital components.
It features six hospital-grade US outlets and two isolated outlets for digital components like CD/DVD player and DAC.
The Z Strip also features Power Factor correction which reduces transmission losses and improves voltage regulation.
The Benchmark DAC1 Pre is not affected by under or over voltage since it is designed to cope with fluctuations from 175V to 285V, but it is quite sensitive to power supply 'dirt'.
Finally I achieved some form of sonic nirvana...and I can enjoy the music (till my fingers get itchy again).
