The BP-30 Balanced Power power system is a rarely available power conditioner in the used market. Encased in a black anodized case that fully shields the toroidal core transformer inside from unwanted EMI interferences, the BP-30 is quite an impressive and sturdily built 8-outlet power conditioning unit. It weighs a hefty 26 lbs and does its intended job – eliminate noise and hum from unbalanced AC power lines, very well. When we hooked up our CD player, preamp and a poweramp to the unit, the system enjoyed a much lowered noise level with the music sounding more relaxed and refined. The wall outlets in our store is not an ideally laid out source of power since we reside inside a commercial building with many huge generators used by our neighbor, a bank, so having this BP-30 hooked up to one of our system was quite a delightful change of sound as it went to work cleaning up the electricity running through it. So if you have a “noisy” electrical supply, this is an inexpensive investment to clean it up.
Cosmetically, the unit looks good. Minor scuff marks here and there and a few tiny nicks along the edges but nothing major. We don’t have the original box but will securely pack this for safe shipping.
