Audience adept Response Teflon aR12-T4
Realize the Full Potential of Power With Power Factor Correction, RF/Noise Filtering and Transient Suppression
The Adept Response will elevate the performance of your audio/video system to new heights like no other power conditioner. In addition to superior power protection, the Adept Response delivers the ultimate audio/video experience.
The Adept Response High Resolution Power Conditioner 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 we believe 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 while still offering effective noise filtration and high voltage surge protection. Exclusive Audience technology achieves far greater performance for all audio and video components.
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.
Adept Response 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 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 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.
Each of the 12 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.
Adept Response Power Conditioners
Power conditioners are one of the most essential components in a high quality audio system. At the same time, they are one of the most misunderstood in terms of their benefit and function. As with other major components like amplifiers and speakers, there are many approaches to their design and ultimate effectiveness. We at Audience believe that improving the audio performance of your system rather than just protecting or isolating it should be the primary goal of the power conditioner.
It is often assumed that the voltage we get from our ac wall outlet is pure. Nothing could be further from the truth. All kinds of electronic noise in the form of radio frequencies and electromagnetic radiation is picked up on the line and fed directly to your components thereby compromising their performance. Even the various components within an audio system can generate harmful noise and contaminate the line. Listeners are often unaware of the veiled quality that this noise imparts until it has been removed. Dealing with these problems in an effective yet non-performance compromising fashion is the hallmark of Audience Adept Response power conditioners.
All Audience conditioning products are passive devices which avoid the brick wall or brute force style that are employed in many conditioners. You will not find heavy transformers, redundant power supplies, integrated circuits or performance-degrading protection devices inside of our products. Instead, you will find an elegant layout that employs the most effective filtering, isolation and protection devices available today. These design parameters ensure that your components live up to their design objectives so that you can obtain the highest level of performance from your audio/video system while simultaneously protecting them from surge and overload events.
Essentially the ideal power conditioner, like any other high end audio component, should not give any evidence that it is in the system or provide any sort of sonic signature of its own. This invisible quality is what Audience has achieved with the Adept Response power conditioners. They allow the full dynamic capabilities, the subtlest of nuances and the rich emotional qualities of the music to breathe within your listening space.
With an Adept Response power conditioner in your system, you have the additional satisfaction of knowing that your system is protected from external damage and isolated from harmful noise.
