Mains purifiers , are all of them snake oil?
      06/12/11 06:44 PM
Thoughts and opinions on mains purifiers please. Are they all useless, or worse introduce more noise into the system. Or are some bad and some good.

I'm having some noise related issues in my studio, some slight chuffing and light crackle through the monitors around peak loud times (dinner time), this usually goes away at night, which makes me think I might have a mains noise related issue.

I was looking at ones made by Fidelity Audio:

They're all passive common mode and differential mode filter types. Could this help at all or would it be audiophool waste of money area.
