Oh- my earth ground is fine. Here's my AC description:
Our home has a 400 amp electrical service. That service was originally split into two 200 amp panel boxes, one for the East and one for the West side of our home. With the new addition at the East of our home, its 200 amp service panel box has a new 100 amp circuit breaker, which is isolated from the 200 amp panel from which its fed, which feeds a third panel box which contains 19 dedicated 20 amp, 10 guage wire circuits for the Home Theater room only. However, I intentionally wired the Home Theater room and addition lighting, a ceiling dedicated 20 amp circuit (which can but is not presently used for the projector), and the addition air conditioning dedicated 30 amp circuit into the pre-existing East panel box, to help keep noise from those circuits out of the panel box and dedicated circuits for audio and video components. The 19 dedicated 20 amp circuits in the Home Theater room panel box are wall wired same electrical phase, skipping every even circuit in the panel box (otherwise, as in typical panel boxes which don't skip every even circuit, this results in doubling the AC power noise). 4 guage copper wire runs from the Home Theater panel box to a nearby 8 foot copper ground rod well buried in the ground. The house ground is a 4 guage copper wire from the East panel box. And a 4 guage copper wire connects the copper ground rod to the house ground. The Home Theater room electrical outlets are PS Audio Power Ports 20 amp (which replaced Hubbell one grade below hospital grade in August 2002).
Chu, I appreciate that you think I must be imaging audio and video improvements using AC regeneration of PS Audio, especially since I've got such a fine electrical/grounding scheme. That's ok. Think what you want. As long as I'm satisfied. To each his own.
Chu, isn't you idea of the power conditioner being a whole house surge suppressor at the power entry to the home, or power entry to a dedicated home theater room? And perhaps a few dedicated 15 - 20 amp outlets with a star ground? And you don't think any further power conditioning or regeneration is necessary? That's my understanding from your posts here, but I could be wrong, and if so please correct me. Thanks.
