Audience Now Shipping Upgraded Adept Response Power Conditioners With Improved Components and Performance

Monday, May 17th, 2010

San Marcos, CA, May 3, 2010 – Audience, a company dedicated to designing and manufacturing ultimate-performance audio/video equipment, is currently shipping its upgraded Adept Response aR2-TS, aR6-TS and aR12-TS high-resolution power conditioners. The three models now incorporate Teflon capacitors with mono crystal copper wire leads, and a large ground plane with all wiring secured by heavy-duty welded connectors in a star-ground configuration.

John McDonald, president of Audience pointed out: “The quality of the AC power going into an A/V system is critical. All audio/video electronics, in essence, are simply modulators of the AC power they receive. This means that the performance the components deliver can only be as good as the quality of the AC power.”

The AC coming out of a wall outlet may contain a significant amount of RF noise – which can then make its way into an A/V system and cause problems such as reduced resolution and sonic purity, an audible “haze” in the sound, and degradation of the video image. The Audience Adept Response power conditioners overcome the liabilities of poor AC power through the use of sophisticated filtering circuitry, premium-quality components and optimized component layout.
