Having messed around with home brew power conditioning solutions, as well as having done my research on this one, I feel that it's a good deal. Also, 6000 watts is a good chunk of power throughput. If you have line noise and already spent serious money on your equipment, this just makes sense. Or if you're mobile and don't want to run off a big battery, who knows what the line noise of the venue will be. On top of that, a little extra protection. Makes sense to me.
