Introduced more noise, not less
Stian_H 10.03.2022
I have had very little luck with this, overall I would say it seems more suitable for maybe a PA system, than for home studio use.

When I had my computer equipment powered through this, instead of reducing emissions, it acted as a rebroadcaster, meaning I had the interference from the computer hitting me from both sides, instead of reducing it.

This seems to be a common issue with power conditioners, not specific to this particular model. The conditioner tries to remove noise from the mains, but if you plug in gear that itself produces noise, it will instead create a common grounds issue, instead of removing anything.

Aside from that, however, the unit itself produces noise hitting everything around it, simply by being powered on with nothing plugged in it produces noise.
Even with balanced cables, it adds a high pitched whine and hiss to the signal, meaning you have to keep all audio gear away from it.

The only way I can see this being useful, is if you keep it completely separate, plugged into a separate power circuit, and physically far away from instruments or audio cables, which defeats the purpose for my intended use.

Too noisy to be good
Stevensson 10.12.2021
A while back I built my first rack and off course I was pretty sure I needed a power conditioner (many youtube clips will tell you why). The Adam Hall seemed about right in the quality for money range. At first I did have a few issues with what seemd like a faulty connection (you would here the electricity sparkle) but I could solve that. Today - upon - building an on desk rack, I suddenly realised this conditioner makes a whole lot of noise (even when just plugged in and doing nothing), so I decided to use a basic unconditioned socket (also from Adam Hall). At least it got rid of the noise and to be honest, everything worls like a charm, so I'm still guessing why I thought I needed a conditioner in the fierst place. Looks good, seems of decent build quality. Only buy if you enjoy a 60 cycle hum.

Does exactly what it says on the tin
Binraider 22.04.2018
I had a ground loop and high frequency noise issues associated with the power supply in my home studio. Between this and a ground loop isolator it's fixed the problem. The rack mount is well thought out and would be good on the road. Only one minor problem. The IEC sockets dont have the greatest grip in the world, something to better secure cables in place might be helpful. A symptom of the standard socket design, not the device...
