Hello James, Where do I start? I am simply overwhelmed with the amazing value the RM15 has added to my system. At first the purchase was purely power isolation based to solve problems with varying voltage conditions resulting from my local grid. However, after removing two simple power conditioners and integrating the Torus RM15 into my system, I now realize the money spent went further than...

The addition of a Torus Powerline Conditioner to my system

Hi James, Apparently my hearing isn’t the greatest because bass frequencies have always been a thick goo muddying around down there in the lower frequencies in my audio system. All that has changed with the addition of a Torus Powerline Conditioner to my system. I added a single 20A Torus unit to two 7B SST’s and one 4B ST that drive a pair of Nautilus 802’s. It has opened up a whole new world...

World Premiere Torus Power CS 15 AVR

Extremely well designed both inside and out. Review By Brett Rudolph The saying goes that a system is only as strong as its weakest link. However, while most people might consider that when planning and evaluating an audio or even audio/video system, very few of them would ponder that the power used in the system itself might actually be one of the weakest links. In a very informal poll of...

Overall, the Torus RM 20 is quite the winner.

(Tony, Winnipeg Canada):Background:Almost a year ago, I replaced a Sonic Frontier Line 1 pre, and two Power 1 amps (vertical biamp) in my main system, with a BP 26 and a 14 BSST, also from Creative Audio. I spent a fair amount of time tweaking those pieces with power cord changes, footers, cardas caps, and more recently swapping out almost all my IC's to Bryston ones, replacing more expensive,...

TORUS POWER CONDITIONERS

The Torus arrived at Sage on a Thursday afternoon. On the following Monday one of our dealers called. They had recently installed a very good two-channel system for a customer and had a problem and wondered if we had any ideas of how to solve it. The customer lives out in the country and all kinds of nasty noise was affecting his system. The dealer had tried two other "power...

The biggest improvement that I noticed is how much purer the upper mid’s and highs are.

“I started a thread on the Audio Circle Bryston board recently regarding my experiences with an unbalanced Torus RM10 and an balanced equi=tech 1.5 Q model. I liked what I heard from the Torus more than the equi=tech but I wanted to go with balanced power so I could tap in to common mode rejection (CMR). I certainly heard more transparency with the equi=tech and I attributed that to balanced...

Torus Power RM 15 Power Conditioner

by Doug Blackburn Review Summary - Two of the other three product lines are more specialized isolation products requiring 240VAC two-phase power. Many newer homes have 100-amp electrical panels, while 200-amp panels (or greater) are found in larger homes with more luxury equipment (outdoor lighting systems, swimming pools, large air conditioning units and electric furnaces), so Torus Power's...

TORUS POWER RM20 AUDIO/VIDEO POWER-ISOLATION UNIT By Larry Greenhill • Published: Jan 3, 2008 - When I arranged to review the Bryston 28B-SST monoblock power amplifier, I wanted to be certain that the 1kW amplifier wouldn't be starved for current. Bryston advised me that Plitron, who manufacture the 28B-SST's toroidal transformer, also make Power Isolation Units (PIUs), under the brand name...
