Audiotricity Chimera power conditioner review is coming


This interesting power conditioner is soon hitting the road towards the Mono and Stereo for test and review. Its one level below Audiotricity signature reference model...

Chimera is more than a power conditioner. Its architecture, with independent plugs, offers a superior filter performance, avoids cross contamination between plugged components, and adjusts the PFC to match the exact needs of each individual component.

Shortest current path in the world (less than 1 inch between the last filter stage and the output power socket): reduces the losses in the current transmission and the chances of new noise absorption.

Made 100% with passive components: lossless by design (preserves the music quality of the original record)

Noise reduction greater than 52db: deep silence, better definition of each musical instrument, and music fluidity.

Path resistance barely measurable (18 mΩ): preserves all the instruments’ original tone, and the system seems effortless.

Internal architecture designed to handle 235A peak: improves current availability and therefore guarantees a deepest and widest soundstage, and a fastest dynamics even for the most power hungry components.

Non-magnetic enclose with anti-vibration treatment and isolation spikes: tighten bass and more accurate high frequencies providing a better instruments’ placement.
