Testimonial for the Adept Response aR2-TS Power Conditioner

John – just wanted to give you some initial feedback on the aR2-TS. I have been playing it now for about 5 days solidly…..this evening it really changed in character. I would have to say it “opened up” in a way that I’ve not previously heard as clearly in other audio gear. I first noticed it with acoustic guitar…..the guitar sounded like real wood. I switched to some live recording in a bunch of different resolutions. The soundstage was so expanded, the details so clear and obvious, subtleties of the music came through, and more than anything else, the music sounded alive. Many thanks for this great product!!

Audience Products Testimonial

JAW DROPPING!!!…I had to collect myself and come back to real time – I was floored! This is the reaction I had when I first became introduced to an Audience AV product. I can still remember the moment as if it’d occurred minutes ago – the experience was that profound! I’m speaking of the Audience AU24 e speaker wire I’d auditioned in my home for the very first time. I’d heard that buying a better speaker wire could make a world of difference in my system. I’d asked my dealer to send me his top choices for speaker wire from 4 high end manufacturers. While all were quite nice NOTHING came close to the Audience AU24 e. And here’s the best part…they only sounded better and better as time passed. I immediately ordered the AU24 SE speaker wire and never looked back. Today, I own Audience AdeptResponse power conditioners, AU24 SE speaker wire, interconnects, digital cables and power cords. And the best part? Well let’s just say this… the window cleaner was cleaning windows in my home the other day while I had music playing on my hi- fi. He remarked “your wife has a strikingly beautiful voice!”. He did not realize it was the hi fi. It sounded so lifelike and real he was convinced the singing was live. Bottom line: Audience plays an integral role in bringing the music to life…making it real!

Testimonial for aR12 Upgrade, Customer Service

ar12_back Alex,
Once again, thanks to you and John  for all your help, support and consideration.  The word is over used, but in your case it applies. You guys are awesome. My thoughts: Great great products,  Great great customer support and service.  This company is the best.  Had my original AR12 upgraded.  Turn around time was quick, and all done without issues.  I have been around the audio world for more than 40 years and have had many pieces of equipment replaced, upgraded, modified, etc.  I should have been prepared for the improvements reaped from the upgrade.  I wasn’t.  It was everything and more than I could have hoped for or expected. Improvements were not subtle, and to date (has been about a month) find no “nits to pick”,  in all those areas we audiophiles love… quietness, detail, sound staging, PRAT, imaging, etc.,  and that all important, toe tapping, “musicality”. Dealing with John McDonald and Alex Keller is as good as it gets. They are attentive, care about the customer, and clearly have a personal commitment to excellence as reflected in the products, their attention to detail, and customer service. A great big thanks. Robert Prinz


Absolute Sound 2014 Awards for Audience Cables, PowerChords, Conditioners, Loudspeakers


Au24 SE Phono Cable
$1245/1m pr.
The Audience phono cable, in a crowded field of contenders, soars above many of them with its alacrity and transparency. Extremely flexible and lightweight, the phono cable is simplicity itself to use. Coupled with its jackrabbit speed is a naturalness of timbre that makes for refined and seductive listening. It also seems to filter out external noise effectively. JH, 230


Audience The ONE
The ONE, as you might infer from its name, is a single full-range driver shoehorned into a small box. The driver itself is the same unit, the A3S, that Audience uses in its flagship $72,000 16+16 speaker. According to Audience, the A3S has exceptionally flat response, claimed to be +/-3db from 40Hz to 22kHz. Be that as it may, properly set up The ONE is the best desktop speaker reviewer Steven Stone has heard. SS, 236



Audience Au24 SE powerChord 
$2420/6 ft.
A power cord that touches all the right bases and then some. To be expected are its neutrality, low noise floor and almost intuitive sense of recorded space and ambience. Beyond that is a stronger micro aspect that hones in on images with incisive focus and seemingly effortless flow and immediacy. Last but not least, the Au24 powerChord is one of the more flexible premium cords available, very handy for angled runs. NG, 219



Power Conditioners
Audience aR2p/aR12/aR6-TSS/aR12-TS
The aR2p, Audience’s compact, dual-outlet power conditioner and isolation device is based on the massive twelve-outlet versions of which Audience is rightly proud. Its enhancement of soundstaging, dimensionality, and depth can be profound. Further up the Audience food chain are the twelve-outlet heavy-hitters. The aR-12p delivers significant improvements in bass definition and depth, overall resolution, and soundstage depth. If six outlets are sufficient, the aR6-TSS with the new “S” filter takes the performance to another level. Across the entire line the build-quality is nothing short of exemplary. AR2p also available in Teflon-cap version for $1600. Reviewed in Issues 162, 179, 186, 236

Audio Video Revolution Review of aR2p Power Conditioner

“Audiophile power conditioning products are generally categorized as accessories, but when they are as well designed and executed as Audience products, I believe they become integral parts of a high-end system. From my experience with Audience power products, they provide immediately identifiable benefits with absolutely no down side.”

Review aR6-TSS: Robert Harley once said to me “You need a power conditioner.”

“Like TAS editor Robert Harley once said to me “You need a power conditioner.” I have one now. It’s the Audience aR6-TSS.

With all my components plugged into the Audience conditioner, violins were unfailingly silkier, voices and instruments emerged from a blacker sonic background with more nuance and dimension to them, soundstaging was grander, and imaging and spatial cues startling. The aR6-TSS contributed a remarkable refinement and brought real precision to my system.”
