Does a good power conditioned help in better sound quality for the 8340 and 8330 being used in a 5.2 surround and stereo set up?

Many Thanks!

Hmm, I think most of us studio folk here don't believe much in power conditioners.
Or we only look into them for specific problems, like DC offset or noise in the power or surge protection.
The great thing about our power grid is, that it practically has infinite impedance - if you need 10x the power from one millisecond to the next, you won't have an issue with the grid.
And recreating this infinite impedance takes a very big machine.
It's also the reason we can't just simply buy a big battery like a Tesla Powerwall and live happily ever after.
I have a 600$ Furman unit that's an ultra high end surge protection - to keep HDDs im my computers safe - does nothing for the sound.
