Audiophile Power Conditioner
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 for your system rather than just protecting or isolating it should be the primary goal of the power conditioner.
Audience is proud to formally announce the release of the NEW T3 adeptResponse power conditioners. The T3 replace existing TS models, with significant enhancement to performance resulting from improvements in the design of Audience Aura-TR (previously Aura-TO) filter capacitors. The new Aura-TR capacitors are more resolute, more dynamic and provide a more distinct sound stage. Whereas the T3 is the new “standard” Teflon conditioner.
The T3 contains long standing Audience features like:
- Star wired ground plane
- micro-vibration damping of all fitter capacitors
- gold over copper lug connectors
- cryogenic treatment throughout the entire AC circuit.
- Low Impedance Magnetic Circuit Breakers
The T3 implements a heavy duty low impedance magnetic circuit breaker and special proprietary invisible surge protection. PowerChords are connected via locking 20A Neutrik AC Powercon connectors for the finest AC powerChord connection, bar none. Upgraded cords are available as an option as well.
Realize the Full Potential of Clean Power With the aR6-T3
The Adept Response aR6-T3 will elevate the performance of your system like no other power conditioner. The aR6-T3 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-T3 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.
Magnetic Circuit Breakers
The Adept Response aR6-T3 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-T3 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-T3 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.
