Ok, one more question.

Those that have added the P10 (or I suppose P5) to the chain, how much improvement did you hear in sound.

For example, when I added the C2300 to my system, I'd say things sounded at least 15-20% better.

When I demoed the MEN220, there was an obvious 20% improvement in sound.

Is the P10 added to the chain more subtle in terms of sound quality improvement? Or is is pretty dramatic?

What did you hear? What should I expect?

Adding clean power results in significant improvements, but not as dramatic as a quality stand that appropriately manages vibrations. Or stillpoints.
Going from P5 to P10 on my amplifiers was more subtle than going from nothing to P5. However, I am still using one P5 for the non-amplifier components.

Thanks Tim.

If you had to put a % improvement number from when you went from nothing to the P5, what would you say? 3% better overall sound? 10%? etc.
