Please read the instructions carefully and completely before attempting to operate the unit. We recommend that you save this manual and the original packaging for future use.

The packaging for the Looking Glass power conditioner is simple, elegant and effective in protecting the Looking Glass during shipping. To remove the conditioner from it's packing, simply open the box, remove the unit and its foam end caps, and set it on a firm, flat, stabile surface, and then remove the foam end caps. Next, remove the plastic protective bag from the unit. At this point we recommend that you check the unit carefully for any damage that may have occurred during shipping. Contact Wells Audio immediately if any damage is found.

It is important to keep all of the original packaging materials for any future need you might have to ship the unit. Shipping the unit in any packaging other than the original packaging materials could result in voiding of the warranty repair coverage.


The unit should be connected to an AC power source of the correctly rated voltage. Never remove or modify the grounding feature of the connected AC power cord. Never expose the AC cord to excess heat or flame. The AC cord should fit firmly and securely into the chosen AC receptacle.

The unit should not be operated near water. If the unit is exposed to liquids serious damage can occur. Immediately shut the unit off and disconnect from the power source.

Make certain that the unit has proper ventilation during operation. Never block the slots located at the top of the unit and do not place the unit in a confined space during operation. These actions may result in damage to the unit due to overheating.

Never operate the unit with the cover off. Do not touch any internal parts. Damage to the unit may occur and serious injury or death may also result.


Do not use any cleaning products on your Wells Audio product. Instead, use a clean, non-abrasive cloth with clear water.A proper break-in period is necessary before the unit will sound it's best. This allows for the establishment of of the cleanest conducting pathways and for the internal components of the unit to stabilize at their proper operating parameters. This is accomplished by simply playing music through the unit for a period of about 200 hours.


At one end of the Looking Glass conditioner there will be located a universal IEC connector. This connector will be clearly marked for the appropriate AC power necessary for the market that the unit was intended to be operated in. Plug in your favorite power cord male connector to the wall outlet and the female end of the cord into the Looking Glass male IEC and you should observe the blue LED power indicator come on. The Looking Glass and Looking Glass Reference power line conditioners are safe for operation at 120 volts and up to 20 amps. These conditioners will not limit power or dynamics unlike many others on the market. They are safe for use with amplifiers as long as they are not operated outside of their 120 volt, 20 amp restrictions. Do not operate the unit with any other AC power than the one it is labelled for. This is dangerous and will void the warranty.
