Well, I would call it a kind of clinical sound vs. more warm... I'm still not 100% sure yet... It could be that it's just a more defined sound... But my ears tell me that there's something else going on...

Note: When I received the unit, the base was damaged... Tripp Lite is sending me a new unit... I'll say this much: The company stands behind their products...

I'll report more on this later after I hook up the new unit... It could be that the one I have here now has been damaged internally or something... Or perhaps it needs break-in time?...   (m.)

Hello, and no, it was the standard unit... I understand that there may be a different grounding scheme on the medical units... Looking inside the unit, all primary components and secondary components are grounded to the same chassis screw... I don't understand how this can be TRUE isolation, but it does conform to NEC [National Electrical Codes]...

It is not true isolation. It is a safety mechanism. You can remove that ground and you will have true isolation.

I have the same unit as Mark.  Interesting but mine was banged up as well.

If the secondary side ground is removed, you will not have absolute chassis ground in case of a ground fault in your audio equipment, right?... I don't know if I would want to do that... But my guess is that it would improve the performance of the unit overall...

Need to look at any center tap arrangements that exist on the X-former... That may determine just what can be done with the grounding situation...

A schematic of the unit might help... Can someone find this?... I can't seem to find one... (m.)

I'm not sure what your budget is, but the PS Audio (entry level) Dectet Power Center looks like a really good product for the price @ $495.

It has the Power Port duplexes and is a passive filtration device (after extenisve reading this seems the best way to go) and with surge suppression, etc.  By no means cheap, but it's worth a look if within your budget.
