5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best filtered options 12 Nov 2011
I bought this for a guitar pedal board and amp set up to give maximum surge protection in dodgy clubs with poor wiring for my expensive kit on the road. Not only does it have surge protection but it has one of the best midrange mains filters without spending a fortune which eliminates a lot of problems for musical production with hums, hisses and rf interference. The plug board is heavy duty, large with thick cable that survives some travel and impact abuse. The lack of any red light indicators on it helps reduce interference even more. It feels sturdy and has a very secure mount when plugging in and out. It's not fancy looking like some of the overpriced kit for AV set ups. I'd highly recommend this for music or higher end home AV set ups to protect your kit and give a very noticeable audio clean up. I've not tried it with visuals but I imagine itd perform well.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works! Good value 9 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase
I have experienced first hand bad interference on the mains line at a relatives flat, which caused a lot of problems with his PC.

That being said I was still a little skeptical of what improvements could be made here, AV experience is always quite subjective anyway and I am dubious of gushing reviews in What Hi-Fi for a 150 kettle lead.

I was looking for a nice solid mains gang adapter anyway and this mains conditioner is great value and I have to say I'm a sucker for exposed components with that toroidal transformer on show.

Now how does it perform? Well visually can't say I've noticed any difference however visually I've never had any problems anyway.

Audio however is noticeably improved, especially with my Sub Woofer, in quiet moments it would pick up an annoying interference type noise however this has cleared up!

All in all it's a nice solid gang adapter with a mains conditioner for a great price.

I plan to buy another one for my Home Cinema room, once I get round to building it ;-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Mains strip and conditioner 26 Dec 2009
By Pee Jay
Like many others, I suspect, I did'nt believe mains conditioning and filtering could make much difference, but having bought a Blu-ray player I thought I would give it the best chance of performing well. This sort of performance assessment is subjective but video and audio performance seem clearer and more stable, particularly freeview which often broke up. Its not much of a gamble at the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tacima 6 Way Mains Conditioner 31 Dec 2009
By Mrs CT
Excellent product. Rave reviews in What Hi-Fi and much cheaper from Amazon than anywhere else in the High Street. Picture quality has improved and sound is better defined with tighter and deeper bass. The fact that it's a surge protector is an added bonus. Can't fault it, especially at the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product for a giveaway price! 19 July 2007
By R. Cole
Verified Purchase
I was a touch sceptical about mains filtering, sure I've got the exceptional interconnects, the energy absorption hi-fi stands, the spikes, the sorbothane and granite and they all work superbly in tightening the sound. But the mains? Fairly constant and surely it can't affect the sound right?

Wrong.

I popped this in front of my system (Musical Fidelity A3.5 & Tri-Vista DAC 21, Audiolab 8000Q & 2 8000P's, Martin Logan Aeon-i electrostats and MJ Acoustics PRO100 sub all hooked up with Krystal Avenger interconnects and QED X-Tube400 speaker cable) and the result was delightful.

For the ludicrously low price this has to be worth having. Whether you are an audiophile like me or just have a decent hi-fi, for the money this is a superb purchase. The effect on the sound was an overall tightening of the image, vocals became crisper and very realistic and the detail was brought out even further than it had been.

I'm now considering spending a lot more on a mains filter if this is the result of spending 40. Superb.

3.0 out of 5 stars brennan/nad/sagem 13 Oct 2011
I purchased the mains conditioner as I needed to upgrade from a 4 gang extension to a 6 gang extension and was happy to spend the extra few pounds in the hope of maybe seeing/hearing an improvement in my audio and visual equipment.
The conditioner was delivered quickly and as described and when fitted looked forward to some positive results. The first thing I tried was my stereo (Nad/Brennan JB7 driving linn Kan speakers) I sat back and listened........not good! the sound appears very boxed in and has lost allot of mid-range and warmth. I checked all connections but everything was as it should be.
I then decided to check picture quality. Yes a definite change and after a little bit of tinkering with the tv tuning am very impressed with a much improved picture from my old CRT TV and Sagem receiver.
So overall I would say if its picture you need to improve, then yes go for it. on the other hand I would give it a miss if you are trying to improve the quality of your stereo.
PS I gave the set up an additional two weeks to see if there was any improvement in sound but there was none. I am still using the conditioner but plug the Nad amp directly into the wall socket... aah that's better!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary 29 Oct 2010
Well it's true that these blocks won't cure fundamental issues with your equipment nor will they turn a sow's ear into a silk purse - previous reviewer take note. Also the quality of mains supply and the level of noise from other appliances varies enormously from house to house. I used one on my stereo - all fairly high end gear - in my flat in London and the difference was immediately noticeable - put it this way I have heard less difference between a CD player costing 500 and one costing 3000 than the benefit this little box gave me. I won't try to describe how it sounded here because that is the road to certain failure and pretentiousness but I will say that anyone dissatisfied with the sound of their hi-fi that is considering upgrading,spend 25 quid on one of these first. Obviously you'll end up upgrading anyway eventually - after all it's what we (audiophiles) do isn't it? But it might mean you can wait just a little longer!
