Sold - Balanced power, Power conditioner

Recommended Posts

Closely related to the Transcendent Sound Balanced power conditioner. 

1000KVA ~ 8amp conditioner. 

Includes a balanced transformer which splits the power onto the Neutral and Hot 60V each. 

This approach is significant reduces AC born noise, creates a huge common mode filter.

Additionally added an EMI/RFI filter.

 

Really lovely unit but my big amps needed a larger conditioners. 

6 Hubbel outlets 

Front is walnut with Rosewood veneer.

Hey Justin, is this something you built?  Except for the box it looks like a fairly simple build. (Obviously once you figure out the layout, parts etc. and math and stuff) Pretty cool.  I've got a factory built conditioner here and I feel it makes a difference.

I'd pay to have one built if it had at least 10 slots.

"""Really lovely unit but my big amps needed a larger conditioners."""

 

So what is the plan now?

I plan to list my 2 matching 4amp units as well. Here is the pics... The smaller units are super cool.

I stepped up to Core-Power units.

They are known which is helpful when demoing for others and they are 15amp units. 

So I went to an EquiCore unit for the sources and a separate Equicore unit for the amps.

My Zion Monos are inspired closely by the HK CitV but we turned into monos with tube rectification. Each has a 4amp SB fuse... needed a big box for them.

 

Here is the pics.

At this point I really have 2 sources... digital and Vinyl. 

I bought a MiniDSP SHD.

It will stream from my Roon server directly via ethernet and will do room correction. 

I have swapped the McIntosh pre out as I will be building the new Sunvalley pre and it will go into the SHD too and allow me to do room correction for both sources.

That is so cool. Thanks for sharing.  Not to mention the pics of your current setup. I'm looking for a project, maybe I'll build one.

What model core power technologies units are you using, I have been looking at them and they look interesting.

I have the deep core and the Equicore. The deep core paired with equicore with 6 Hubble duplex outlets are the for the source/pre. The deep core can vary the impedance between neutral and hot and stoped dc. I can’t hear the difference but a reviewer I trust swears buy it. The pair of deep core+ equicore is my front end duty setup for Quietest a operation. The power amps are into a equicore to.  It’s a 15amp version of what I’ve been using. I did add an emi/tif filter to each but that’s me being anal retentive and overkill.

BTW with the PDF you have the basic parts needed.  The transformer is from Avel Lindberg. The chassis was eBay.  You can find a lot of great examples.  The caps were mouser or parts express. The outlets. Keep it basic.  Homedepot.

Peavey pushed this idea a long time ago... it's finally become part of the National Electric Code.

I have a a second system and the room has some issue with noise from my electrical outlet and I was hoping these would help.

I think of it as a brute force method.  MOVs are sacrificial and can die unexpectedly. A big transformer isn’t magic but it does work 😉
