The Audience Adept Response AR2 High Resolution Power Conditioner with Power Factor Correction, RF/Noise Filtering and Transient Suppression... Realize the Full Potential of Power!
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 aR2p, Audience's compact, dual-outlet power conditioner and isolation device is based on the massive twelve-outlet versions of which Audience is rightly proud. Used with a CD player its enhancement of soundstaging, dimensionality, and depth can be profound. With demanding high-current devices such as amplifiers, transients seemed a little soft and an audition is recommended." - The Absolute Sound, November 2011
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 didnt 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 2 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.
Below are features that are incorporated in Adept Response power conditioners:
Main power cord included is Audience 10 AWG powerChord SE-i with locking Neutrik 20A Powercon connection.
Low resistance, heavy duty magnetic circuit breaker power switch.
Ground plane with star ground wiring. (except 2 outlet models which are inherently star grounded).
Exclusive Audience Auricap XO+ polypropylene or Aura-TO Teflon high resolution capacitors used in filter sections.
Each outlet is individually filtered with high efficiency/low impedance filter components. (except aR2p models)
Double filtering between each outlet for maximum component to component isolation. (except aR2p models)
Dynamic performance maximized by partial power factor correction.
Entire audio and/or video system can be power including power amplifiers without limiting of dynamics.
