Blog (Tweek Geek Speek)
Welp. We've moved the blog uh-gain. Back to Blogger.com. Follow the link below.
Hi Folks, I have made the decision to move back to the Blogger platform because it is superior in functionality and looks. The article on the Bybee Dark Matter Stealth upgrade can be found by following this link.
I love new technology, especially when it disrupts conventional thinking. Today I want to elaborate on my experience with a new type of power conditioner. Over the last 16 years I have had the opportunity to audition many, many power conditioners, power filters, active power conditioners, passive power conditioners, power distributors, you get the idea.
