The more I lived with Torus Power’s TOT AVR, the more it delighted me. I enjoyed its modest size, moderate weight, and reasonable price, as well as the peace of mind of knowing that my gear was safe from lightning. Its build quality is first-rate, and its feature list is more practical than exotic. In my system, the TOT AVR improved musical detail and three-dimensional imaging for a wide range of music. And did I say that I like its low price?
Our TOT AVR has received a number of awards including a CE Pro Best Award, a TONEAudio Product of the Year Award and a power transformer of the Year award from Hi-Fi+ magazine.
Here’s a snip:
The third approach of power filtration (balanced isolation using toroidal transformer, such as the one used in my Torus Power AVR15+) is the approach that is used by hospitals, military, and laboratories around the world since it is the best way of cleaning the AC power.
Too many people do not understand and/or discredit the use of power conditioning in high-end audio and/or home theatre system. This is understandable due to some of the bad effects that come along with many power conditioning products (usually the cheaper kinds). One must understand, however, the fact that all of our electronics are simply modulators of AC power. Transforming this AC power into useful forms doesn’t change this basic fact, and the end result can only be as good as the power with which we start. Thus, the need for a properly designed power conditioning product that does no harm.
Bottom line: before you start changing your power cables with higher quality ones in the hopes of getting a better audio and video experience, clean the power itself first. Trust me, you need it.
