The new TSSOX is a vast sonic improvement of the TS model! The TSSOX features a darker background, more focused soundstage, copper power wire6-nines-pure OCC (Ohno Continuous Casting) in a very high-quality XLPE (cross-linked polyethylene) jacket, a shorter conductive path, XLPE core to deliver more coherent conduction, gold-plated copper forks, copper duplexes plated with rhodium for a better sense of speed, clarity, and soundstaging!
The Audience Adept Response AR6-TS 6-Outlet Power Conditioner includes a 10 Year Warranty!
Your playback system will no longer be starved of clean high quality power.
The Audience Adept Response aR6-TSSOX High Resolution Power Conditioner with Power Factor Correction, RF/Noise Filtering and Transient Suppression... Realize the Full Potential of Power!
"The sound of the aR6-TS was, in a word, stunning. Eyes bulged. Ears stretched out and snapped back. This wolf whistled. My mouth drooled. I wore my Depends. I wondered where the heck all this new information was coming from... I was hearing whole albums with all this new information as if for the first time, my listening remained a gloriously thrilling experience -- precisely what we audiophiles are always trying to get out of the entire process of creating an incredible music system. I looked forward to hearing again everything Id collected over the years -- relistening to recordings over and over with the aR6-TS in the system never got old." - Doug Blackburn, www.ultraaudio.com
"Going from no power conditioner to the aR6-TS was such a revelation that it was difficult to believe that a mere power conditioner could make such a huge improvement. If you think your system already sounds as good as it can, you might find it hard to believe what an Audience aR-TS can do for it... an aR6-TS might just make the biggest overall improvement in sound you can get for that kind of money." - Doug Blackburn, www.ultraaudio.com

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 Repsonse power conditioners overcome the liabilities of poor AC power through the use of sophisticated filtering circuitry, premium-quality components and optimized component layout.
Teflon is the most ideal dielectric for capacitors. A dielectric is supposed to act as an insulator of an electric charge, but other dielectric materials do not insulate as well as Teflon, or sound as refined. The aR6-TS uses Teflon film capacitors, and the capacitors performance is further improved by the use of mono crystal copper wiring for the connecting leads.
The newly added ground plane used in the Teflon-equipped Adept Response power conditioners (also included in standard non-Teflon aR conditioners) provides additional sonic benefits. All ground wires are weld connected to the ground plane with heavy-duty connectors, rather than mechanically fastened. This simple but important detail even further improves the sonic performance enabled by Adept Response power conditioners, by improving the internal wiring connections and lowering their DC resistance, one of the state-of-the-art characteristics of all Adept Response conditioners.
McDonald noted: Although our previous power conditioners deliver excellent performance and have earned many accolades from reviewers and customers, our new Teflon capacitors and improved ground plane bring the aR6-TS to an even higher level of performance. Resolution and coherence are significantly improved, and music is conveyed with a more natural sense of pace, rhythm and timing, or PRAT as its sometimes called.
McDonald concluded, We encourage music lovers, audiophiles and home theater enthusiasts to experience these products for themselves, and hear and see what were so excited about.
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 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 6 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.
