Dirty electricity filter Greenwave


Recommended Posts

There should be no effect on dynamics as the filter sits in parallel with the other loads.

 

The design appears to be similar to similar to some of the DIY designs available, including the Jon Risch AC filter. If you are interested, I can loan you a filter I made many years ago. The only word of warning I have is that my filter does not use appropriately safety rated capacitors or resistors. As long as you don't leave it in unattended it would be fine. It's made into a retardant plastic housing, so there is no real fire or safety risk to the user if it blows. I may have another version I made out of safe parts. As luck would have it, the non-rated version sounds a lot better. PM me if you are interested.

 

In order for these filters to be more effective, you can try them plugged in adjacent to noisy equipment around the house. Feel free to use an adapter - these things have got no polarity anyway.

I have equipment to measure Normal Mode Noise (Line to Neutral), Common Mode Noise (Neutral to Ground) & also the famous Line EMI Meter. I'm doing case study to find out the before and after

wow!!! he really went indepth into all readings!!  1) i have 2 Dedicated lines into the MCB for my hifi/ht. ( done about 3 years ago) 2) i changed out all my house wiring about 2 years ago f

It’s not the cable but rather the Charger itself.    In general, most generic DC adaptors are noisy and will inject the noise back into the AC.    If it’s a must to plug in an AC adaptor

[emoji106] looking forward to your impressions with the BAC3000

 

Wah, you still have available outlets on your BAC3000 .... I had to get another smaller unit for more outlets.

 

At some stage, waiting for you to try the Furutech NCF Clear Line AC Optimiser [emoji6]

Yea that’s the other one, I didn’t test this version. I tested other brand. Would be interesting to compare them.

 

Wow, then can have AC filter shoot out ?

Interesting, honestly I’m not so well versed with electrical stuff. Just an end user comparing A & B. Noted your point on “dynamics” part. I will test it Soon. There appears to be a bleed resistor in the greenwave and there are 3x X2 capacitor in it with a total 25UF

 

For me personally, conclusion found is good. I place this at other areas, near fridge, 1 in common room, 1 in master bedroom , across the living room etc , targeted areas with high EMI readings

 

Would be interesting to compare your DIY version with it.

A bleed resistor is required across the L-N capacitor to safely discharge it when it is removed from the wall socket. In experiments, a mid size capacitor value of about 1-2 uF sounded best, although this is also dependent on the capacitor brand used. For the capacitors from L and N to Earth, Y-rated capacitors were used. Very small values were used as we noticed that the circuit breaker would trip if we used too many of them.

This link may be a good start to see some of these ideas.

Wow, to my surprise, the greenwave improves dynamics, the other way round... I thought it would take away the dynamics, but seems like background is darker. The instruments are much more pronounced,and the bass is much tighter.

 

There is improvement from my observations. I have tried the same song plug out plug in 4x.

 

Happy to confirm it is nice and goes along with plixir

 

Another member however, found no difference whatsoever in his test today. He said he tried hard to pick up the difference but found nothing is different with and without

 

I tried hard not to let my mind influence me. But i am still picking up the difference , it’s not minor , can be heard , quite obvious for me

This is the song I use, the first few seconds from the train and I could tell the difference

Track 16 is what I’m using to test

thanks for sharing! sure looks like a good small investment!

 

some questions i have after reading;

 

- i have the same bada multi plug/ conditioner, but i use the "direct" for my power amp, if i plug this in, then my power amp can plug into the "filtered" side?

- in order to overcome the above problem, can i use 2 of that plug (from japanhome type) to "stack" so that i could possibly still use the "direct" plug?

- if i use 1 of this on the bada conditioner, it should sort out the whole set of 8 plugs right?

- if get the 2 prong version instead of the 3, will it not be easier to arrange it (so that you don't lose another plug)?  does it matter which direction you plug it?

 

sorry newbie in hifi/ht.

Plug the greenwave into “direct” of Bada, the rest of the sockets in that conditioner will benefit . As I’ve just discovered it doesn’t take away the dynamics in the process of cleaning dirty electricity

 

Avoid using 2 filters and stacked on the same conditioner, instead, plug the second filter at the location nearest the MCB or nearest your Hifi/HT Equipment , that is better

 

2 prong will work too. I haven’t tested 2 prong version in reverse polarity, so can’t comment on what it does there On efficiency, u will need to test it out

The greenwave goes into plixir cube 4! Fantastic sounding, dynamics up ! The other way round [emoji1787]

 

Not sure what is all this magic behind, but whatecer works, is what I will stick to

 

Super good !!

interesting. thanks! will hopefully get some soon, and update back.

Indeed it is.

 

I first tested one on the plixir elite 3000, where all the amplifiers are connected. It was evident. Then I tried plugging a second one into the cube 4 plixir , where source equipments were connected. Immediately the difference was telling. On the area where source equipment are connected, it is much more evident from what I’ve discovered. Both instances doesn’t take away the dynamics , so that’s nice to know
