Anyone using balanced power to provide power to any of (powered) triton towers and can attest to any sonic improvement?

Anyone?

@moderator - can you tell me if the Triton Refence is compatible with (and could benefit from) "balanced power". By this I mean using 60 volts hot and 60 volts neutral as opposed to US 120V hot and 0 neutral. Thank you.

For GoldenEar powered speakers, we do not recommend modification to the incoming main power unless it's a typical passive power conditioner such as AQ Niagara Power or equivalent.

www.audioquest.com/ac-power/ac-power-con...-series/niagara-1200

There are a few reasons for this
1) No Chassis GND (3rd pin) that would be used for a "balanced 60/60V" approach GND
2) CSA/UL/CE safety approvals testing configuration. Our speakers are tested/approved by safety test labs using 120V input and changing input power configuration would void safety approvals.
