My imagination, or can a 20 amp circuit make an audible difference?
I recently discovered that the three main outlets I use in the basement are all on the same circuit. I was concerned I had too much connected and running at the same time. Some of those included my 2 channel system, a dehumidifier, my elliptical machine, the TV and soundbar, my dog's invisible fence, plus a few other smaller items. All in, there where at least 11 things connected. Luckily, my subwoofer is on a different circuit. I normally listen to the stereo while working out on the elliptical, with the TV on with no sound. In the summer, my dehumidifier will also be running. I decided to have a separate 20 amp line installed.
I connected my stereo rack and the elliptical to the dedicated 20 amp circuit today. It could be my imagination, but as soon as I turned on the stereo, I thought sounded noticeably better. The music sounded much cleaner, more powerful and detailed. Could there be something to this?
