Thanks for the tip. I think I'll probably just get the adapter from furman though. That's good info about the amps from my gear though.

Thanks,

I guess I could have gone with the AR-15, although the ar-20 I got was pretty cheap on ebay, $302 + $45 shipping. The guy did a dutch auction with 2 of them. Dutch auctions are usually good news for the buyer!

Thanks,

Power Conditioner 15 to 20 AMP adapter: Is this safe?

I bought an AR-1220 that has a "funny" plug. They have adapters that you can buy to allow you to plug it into your wall, is this safe? Also will this conversion affect the sound?

I guess I'm just dumb and uncool. Maybe someone should alert Empirical Labs and they can come remove it from my home since I am unworthy to own it.

Roger
What is meant by a subgroup. Does that mean the whole drum mix or just portions of it?

I was inquiring about any time when 2 compressors are used at once. I'm wondering when 2 distressors would get use at the same time. Stereo compression would be one of those times I guess? On what sources do people do stereo compression a lot? Overheads? Amps?

Thanks,

DUAL COMPRESSION: When do you use it?

I have 1 distressor with the stereo link mod and am wondering if I should be saving up for a second. When do you guys use 2 compressors linked up?

Thanks,

As far as budget goes i guess I'm looking at around $500 or less. It doesn't have to be rackmountable and there aren't any other weird constraints, at least that I know of.

Vox ac-15: ALNICO difference, what is it?

I've been thinking of buying a vox ac15. I see that if you get an Alnico speaker in it the cost is considerably more. What does the alnico sound like in comparison to the other speaker that vox offers? Do you think it's worth the extra coin?

That case looks cool. I think I will definitely try it for my mics when I have to transport them. Did you use a razor to cut the foam or is there a more precise way to do it?

Thanks,

(I bought a bunch of EH pedals new and I like the way they look, and sound!) I do live near an ikea so I can check that out. I like the i...

I like the wall unit. I may try and do something like that. Anyone else do anything different?
