During the winter months our supply voltage varies sufficient to stop my Leak Troughline tuner from working. What I am looking for is something that will give a constant AC voltage out regardless of mains I/p voltage.

It is exactly what I want so I've bought the 500W version. Thank you for your assistance.

The sound difference between raw mails and the AC regenerator is immense, sounds are much crisper and more detailed. I can tell the difference listening in an adjoining room and that through an ageing Leak Troughline. To say I'm delighted with the result is a vast understatement, ecstatic is much nearer the mark.
This all happened because I asked a question and ICLP1 (Ifor) Responded.
I'm eternally grateful.

Heart warming and ear pleasing. Another great example of how good this forum is.

I'm intrigued.  I'm pretty sure I have a very ropey mains power supply here (light bulbs never last very long, for example), and I seem to have been reading numerous extremely enthusiastic claims lately to the effect that massive improvements in sound quality can be achieved simply by using a perfectly stable AC power supply.  Is this really, really true?!  I can't think of any obvious reason why it should make much or any difference (and my knowledge of electronics wouldn't cope with a very technical explanation).  But there are definitely some experts on this forum so... (!)...

Assuming that it really can make a huge difference, several questions spring to mind:
1. If I got (say) the AG500 regulator (https://www.powerinspired.com/store/ag500-ac-regenerator-500w-with-pwm-fan-control-p-1811.html ), would I be able safely to plug an extension/multi-socket cable into it to then feed 'clean' AC power to all the 'vital' hi-fi stuff: turntable, amplifier, Slee GramAmp Communicator with standard power supply, CD transport, Minidisk player, cassette player, laptop computer (for HD digital files)?

2. Assuming I can go ahead as above, which items would show a noticeable audio improvement?  (And really, really, how great would it be?!)

3. For vinyl reproduction, would the Slee PSU1 deliver a greater improvement?

4. Since the cost of the AG500 is definitely not negligible, does anyone know how I could get an in-home trial?

Gratitude for guidance would be forthcoming!
