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.
