Wow...thanks nlc201 for that explanation... but now my brain feels like it is going to explode :face palm:

I have just been thrown into the middle of a large audio/video studio building project (too long to explain here), and and doing my best to turn around a situation where not all the right questions where asked...

So my question is this: When you have audio and video as part of a single system such as an audio/video studio, does the audio and video equipment need to be on a single phase, or can it be spread across multiple phases of the mains power? I understand that a balanced power transformer is by nature single phase, so this would require the use of multiple transformers, correct? Or would having them on separate transformers negate the benefit?
