Months ago, I saw a filter power supply in a shop. The salesman told me that it's

a filter power supply, actually I don't know what it is. It just like a common

electrical outlet or a receptacle. But the sound seems different when the

amplifier connect to it. Is anybody know this power supply?

Sounds like you're talking about a surge protected electrical socket block, which you can buy in most Russian electrical stores (sic; Eldorado etc)...

Better still is what's called a UPS device, just ask any computer retailer... :cool:

I think it's similar to the surge protector.
And someone recommend PS Audio (http://www.psaudio.com/ps/products/list/category/power/) and Yakars (http://www.yakars.com/) to me, I think their name would be better.

Power smoothing is what you're talking about, but since your first post didn't mention the audio side of matters I assumed you wanted surge arrest and a possible form of outage protection.

Power smoothing is used for delicate instrumentation, and is not generally for computers; you'd find such devices employed within laboratory and perhaps professional sound studio environments.
