ADD-Powr Sorcer x4
Audio Power Conditioner
Field Based Power Conditioning
- TweekGeek's Review of the Sorcer X4
ADD Powr's Sorcer x4 emits an algorithmically generated field to obliterate noise riding on AC lines. Your components do not need to be plugged in to it to get the benefits of this noise reducing technology. In fact, you couldn't plug a component into the Sourcer x4 if you wanted to, there are no AC receptacles!
A New Reference
The Sorcer x4 changes the quality of the AC line, using the emitted field to re-reference or bias the AC. There are no filters, isolation transformers, AC line regeneration, nor balanced power techniques. The Sorcer x4's unconventional approach to power conditioning leaves AC impedance and current capability untouched. That bear's repeating...
The Sorcer x4's unconventional approach to power conditioning leaves AC impedance and current capability untouched.
The Sorcer and Wizard products do not employ filters, isolation transformers, AC line regeneration, nor balanced power techniques. It uses line transformers connected in series along with proprietary digital amplifier circuitry under algorithm control. The AC line is "re-referenced" or re-clocked with low frequency harmonics that neutralize noise.
Whether analog or digital signals, audio or video systems, consumer or professional, a new level of benefit is revealed with the ADD-Powr reference.
What you can expect
We said it best in our Tweek Geek Speek review of the Sorcer:
"Clarity, macro and microdynamics are, well, more dynamic. Imaging is precise, soundstaging is larger, and leading edge transients are sharper. All of the musical frequencies become cleaner, clearer AND more musical. There seem to be no tradeoffs with the Sorcer."
- Dimensions: 17.75" x 12.5" x 6
- Weight: 30 lbs
- Voltage: 120 or 220
Q: My country runs 220 volts standard. Can I use an ADD-Powr Sorcer X4 here?
A: Yes, the Sorcer X4 can be ordered in a 220V version
Q: Do power cords influence the Sorcer X4?
A: Yes they seem to. Whatever filtering or tonal characteristics the power cord powering the X4 has, they seem to pass through to the effect the X4 has on the overall sonic presentation of your system.
Q: What if I plug the Sorcer X4 into a different circuit than the one that my system is plugged in to?
A: It should work fine, as a dedicated line will have slightly lower noise sometimes, in general it will still have a similar noise signature to the other lines in your home. What you want to avoid is plugging the unit into a power conditioner, that will greatly reduce it's effectiveness.
