Thanks for that Prem...Will check with vertex now if they make any balanced transformers too. ThanksBalanced transformer should take care of differential noise
Ok I still didn’t get it. What has the ac compressor running 30 feet away got to do with music in the living room? Are u saying that the hum from the ac/ fridge compressor can be heard when I play music? Or is this noise internal in the wiring? When I put on my music setup, I don’t hear anything. No noise or hum etc. So this noise u r saying is internal?In short, you will hear the mixie motor or fridge/AC compressor run.
Which you should, otherwise how will one discern the nuances of music.
But the harmonics/noise they inject into your home grid will not show up in audio chain.
At least that's the theory.
Internal noise. This gets injected into the home wiring and "may affect" audio performance.Ok I still didn’t get it.

Second that endorsement..... I have no association with Vertex other than being a customer but having bought a great many audio devices and experiencing dismal customer service and support, I fully endorse these guys and I feel they are doing a great service to the audiophile community .
And lastly I don't want to go OT on the OP's post, yes they make excellent step down units as well. I have a 3kva step down unit (currently in storage) which I used to run 110v equipment from ARC/Conrad Johnson/MSB/Modwright etc. without any issues whatsoever.
Congratulations. Looks a solid piece of gear. Can you also share how many equipments you are planning to connect to this stabilizer?Hi all....thanks again for all your advise and guidance. Thought I'd give a meaningful end to my post.
So I ended up buying a vertex servo stabilizer of 1 kva capacity and a vertex step down transformer of 1 kva capacity with inbuilt isolation transformer.
I got vertex hyderabad dealer contact number from a friend. Gave that gentleman Mr.Isaac a call. Since I mentioned that this was speficially for audio application where I wanted quality power. He suggested adding a servo stabilizer also in the chain, apart from step down transformer I was originally looking for.
The final bill with GST and transportation charges to my residence came to 19.8k. Expecting delivery around the month end.
I had requested for a change of those indian sockets to universal sockets. And also requested for 2 outputs instead of one. My request was accepted. Thanks for reading View attachment 39360View attachment 39361

I am planning to offload my 10 year old AVR to a friend who wants to try out with basic HTS. Mine is a US 110v model Yamaha V665/HTR-6260.I would say depending on your skill level, cost of the item/warranty etc, if you can, open the unit (demount the transformer if needed) to check numbers on it. Usually the transformers are made to cater both US and India voltages and it is just that they are hard-wired differently based on the region it was made for. If you can share the numbers on transformer with me, I can or in fact there are several techies here who can help.
Not all can be converted; it depends on the transformer, if it has dual primary, it can be. As with most of us, I too am a semi-tech person and my suggestion is dependent on of the transformer has sticker on it showing the winding layout. So, if you could open and share some pictures of transformer inside, we can try.I am planning to offload my 10 year old AVR to a friend who wants to try out with basic HTS.

Please outline the process of modding the AVR to convert it into a 220v. We are ok with the risks associated.
