    I seem to have found a limited supply of IEC sockets with built in filters.
    Would it be worth fitting one to my 8000A?

    Im not keen on putting one into my CDP untill the warranty runs out

    I personally don't like these, I've tried them with a number of bits of gear and they seem to squash the dynamics.

    There's no reason why you should not try it cz you can always swap the unit out again.

    I'm with Zanash (for a change :D ).

    The only time I fitted one to something, two days it lasted before we (it's owner and I) ripped it back out and put an ordinary one back in. I now treat it with the same suspicion as the old "stick some ferrites on the ol' mains lead" trick. The ideas sound alright in theory, but there does seem to be more to it.........

    Cheers
