- Removes both Common Mode and Differential Mode mains noise.
- RFI reduction 75dB
- Six unique conditioning stages ensure optimal isolation between all outlets. Two high-current outlets incorporate part of Titan’s Direct-Coupled© circuit. Four outlets feature IsoTek unique Adaptive Gating© circuit, which auto-senses the load.
- LED Display showing voltage and THD distortion of the mains.
- KERP© (Kirchoff’s Equal Resistance Path) ensures equal resistance and equal power delivery across all outlets.
- 108,000A of instantaneous protection.
- Internal wiring; solid core silver plated PCOCC with FEP virtually an air dielectric.
- Two high-current outlets delivering 3,680W continuous. Four medium-current outlets delivering 2,300W continuous.
- Supplied with an EVO3 Power Cable
The IsoTek EVO3 Aquarius is an innovative, rack-width power conditioner (cleaner) that dramatically upgrades a full system.
Aquarius is six power conditioners in one chassis, with a dedicated filter network for each outlet. Thus, Differential Mode noise created by connected electronics cannot cross contaminate to the next output socket.
There are two high current outlets, rated up to 16A, (3680VA / 230V) suitable for power amplifiers, active loudspeakers or sub woofers. Plus there are four medium current outlets for the remaining components in your audio or home cinema system.
The medium current outlets auto sense the requirements of the load based upon power draw, thus a projector (typical 300W) can be plugged in next to a CD player (typical 35W) and both will have an auto adjusted correct level of filtration.
Housed in a rack-width steel and aluminium chassis, the Aquarius boasts a high quality design while remaining highly functional.
Why ‘dirty power’ is a problem
The power that enters your audio components from the wall socket is distorted by the pollution on the mains supply. Sensitive equipment, particularly audio electronics cannot perform to their full potential. The biggest two offenders are Differential Mode and Common Mode mains noise.
Differential Mode Noise
Differential Mode mains noise is created by all electrical appliances – everything with a power supply, in fact. This includes your microwave oven, your television and your computer, as well as every hi-fi component you own. Take a look around your home and count how many devices you have plugged into your power sockets, each of these will be corrupting the mains sine wave and eroding the quality of the AC power that feeds your high-quality audio system.
Common mode noise
Common Mode mains noise is often referred to as RFI – Radio Frequency Interference. Imagine how much data is transmitted by smartphones and tablets – cheap power cables act as aerials for these unwanted frequencies. The use of wifi and wireless technology is increasing at an exponential rate. Just think about all the data that you send and receive on your smart phone. We are bathed in a sea of Common Mode noise.
The need for clean power
The escalation of mains-borne ‘noise’ means that the need for clean power technology has never been greater. ‘Differential mode noise’ is especially exacerbated by the switch-mode power supplies that are common in many modern devices, from computers to kitchen appliances. ‘Common mode noise’ is ever-increasing thanks to wireless networking in the home, with mobile phones, wi-fi and Bluetooth soaking us in a sea of airborne interference.
The quality of electricity we feed our audio and AV systems has a profound effect on performance, and that’s where IsoTek’s unique clean-power solutions come in. Without a clean power source, you are only accessing around 80 per cent of your system’s full potential.
IsoTek’s unique power cleaning systems, designed specifically for use with audio and audio visual electronics, can dramatically improve your systems performance. Expect a quieter noise floor, more extended frequency range, better imaging with a more stable sound stage, with no loss of timing or dynamics, a fact that has been proven by consistently positive reviews and awards over the last 15 years.
