The new IsoTek ‘EVO3 Venus’ AV power centre: the affordable way to enhance and protect any hi-fi or home cinema system IsoTek, leader in mains conditioning systems for hi-fi and home cinema, extends its entry-level ‘Discovery’ range to provide yet another impressively cost-effective – and elegantly styled – way to optimise the performance of valuable equipment.
Want a cost-effective way to increase your return on investment in high-end hi-fi or home cinema systems? Looking to improve your system’s performance and enhance its lifespan? Then you probably need to clean up your power.
Mains electricity is distorted by, and gathers noise from, a variety of influencing factors which constrain the performance of electronic equipment. The likelihood of polluted mains supply is now greater than ever thanks to our widespread use of computers and wireless networks. What’s more, power surges or spikes can pose a real risk to valuable gear, potentially causing internal damage or reducing a component’s lifespan.
The answer? Power conditioning. IsoTek offers a comprehensive range of multi award-winning solutions designed to deliver clean, filtered power while also providing protection from surges or spikes. It’s ‘Discovery’ range offers impressive performance at entry-level prices, delivering exceptional value for money.
New to the range, the EVO3 Venus AV power centre is a five-outlet mains conditioner designed to enhance and protect a complete audio or AV system. Elegantly designed, it will complement even the most stylish system set-up.
A painstakingly designed delta filter topology filters out common mode and differential mode noise, with a reduction in RFI of 30dB. Each of the five outlets is independently isolated to prevent cross-contamination. In addition, IsoTekʼs unique sequential and repeatable protection system provides 13,500A of instantaneous protection from electrical spikes and surges, safeguarding valuable equipment.
Unlike many entry-level mains filtration products which use off-the-shelf components, the EVO3 Venus is designed from the ground up by IsoTek. Top-quality parts are used throughout, including a hand-soldered, silver-plated PCB, and internal wiring with silver-coated OFC (oxygen-free copper) conductors and a Teflon PTFE dielectric.
Sonic improvements delivered by the EVO3 Venus include greater clarity and definition, a lowering of the noise floor leading to improved dynamic range and enhanced spatial qualities, as well as a refinement and a general opening up of the soundstage.
With robust steel casework beautifully finished in white, and a price tag of only £325, the EVO3 Venus will protect and enhance the performance of every connected component – leaving you free to enjoy the full level of sound and picture quality that your system is capable of.
