"The unit significantly lowers the noise floor, which in turn leads to increased resolution of very fine detail. This resolution increase is heard as more vivid timbres and density of tone color. Fine transient information is also better portrayed; listen to brushes on snare drum, for example. With the aR6-TSS there's just a greater impression of the mechanism by which the sound is made. The increased smoothness and reduction in glare that Garrett noted is, in my view, alone worht the price of admission." - Robert Harley, The Absolute Sound

New Designations "O" and "X". What Do They Mean?
The “O” part of the upgrade designates the use of OHNO oxygen-free continuous cast copper (OCC), 6 nines purity mono-crystal wiring throughout. This is Audience’s top of the line AC power wire design specifically applied for the internal wiring of Audience power conditioners. It yields improved resolution, greater musical “speed” and immediacy and better sound-staging.
The “X” designation indicates the use of new rhodium plated copper internal contacts in the AC outlets. The copper contacts provide the very highest conductivity and the quality rhodium plating prevents oxidation of the copper. These high conductivity receptacles improve virtually every aspect of a system’s audio reproduction.
Further, all new Audience power conditioners now have gold plated copper forks to connect the power conditioners’ filter capacitors to the AC duplex outlets. This construction replaces the previous tin plating-over-copper forks. The new forks provide a noticeably more refined musical presentation.
The S designation stands for the proprietary ground plane technology, as used in the aR6-TSS
Power conditioners are one of the most essential components in a high resolution audio system. At the same time, they are one of the most misunderstood in terms of their benefit and function. As with other major audio components like amps and speakers, there are many approaches to their design and ultimate effectiveness. Audience believes that improving the audio performance fo your system rather than just protecting or isolating it should be the primary goal of the power conditioner.
Realize the Full Potential of Clean Power With the aR6-TSS
The Adept Response aR6-TSS will elevate the performance of your system like no other power conditioner. The aR6-TSS is a cutting edge design providing the best power conditioning possible without limiting dynamics. Since power must respond quickly and completely to the demands of program material Audience believes it is imperative that power conditioning components present a low impedance power path while providing wide bandwidth noise reduction. Conventional power conditioners simply cannot approach the bandwidth/impedance characteristics of the Adept Response aR6-TSS while still offering effective noise filtration and high voltage surge protection. Exclusive Audience technology achieves far greater performance for all audio and video components.
The MOV: Enemy of high quality sound
Of the power conditioning products on the market today few allow your playback system to attain full dynamic range or reproduce subtle dynamic contrasts accurately. The other culprit afflicting most power conditioning products is the ubiquitous MOV. (Metal Oxide Varistor) The MOV is a sacrificial device. This means it wears down over time until it fails completely. Its purpose is to clamp high voltage transients safely to ground instead of through your equipment. This would be fine if it didn’t break down and behave like the world's worst capacitor across your power line, storing energy and releasing it as performance robbing, time delayed distortion into your audio system. The effect is quite audible. For surge protection the Adept Response employs a non-wearing type high voltage transient suppression.
The aR6-TSS uses Magnetic Circuit Breakers
The Adept Response aR6-TSS uses only the finest conducting, filtering and transient suppression components. Even the power switch is exceptional, a very high quality magnetic circuit breaker. The advantage over thermal circuit breakers is that thermal breakers increase in resistance as power demand increases, causing heat dependent, resistive modulation of the incoming voltage. This effectively reduces the power available to your equipment just when you need it most. The design employed in the Adept Response provides for the most natural flow of music.
The state of the art inductive components used in the Adept Response aR6-TSS power conditioner add no significant series resistance. This maintains a low impedance
power path to your playback system. Also, the Adept Response performs partial power factor correction. This helps restore natural dynamics by bringing the AC voltage and current into a better phase relationship allowing a more efficient transfer of power. With the Adept Response aR6-TSS as your power conditioner all aspects of the audio/video performance are greatly improved. Your playback system will no longer be starved of clean high quality power. The result is realistic, beautiful audio and stunning video resolution.
Individually Filtered Receptacles
Each of the 6 outlets is individually filtered and double filtered from every other outlet providing maximum component to component isolation. An entire audio or video system can easily be powered by the same conditioner, including everything from digital components and phonograph preamplifiers to power amplifiers. This extensive noise filtering creates a lower noise floor and improves low level resolution, providing superior sound stage presentation. Power amplifiers plugged into the Adept Response display increased dynamics and perform as if they were more powerful.
