Newsletter: Announcing New T3 and T4 adeptResponse Power Conditioners 10/16/19

Dear Audio Enthusiast,

Audience is proud to formally announce the release of the NEW T3 and T4 adeptResponse power conditioners. The T3 and T4 replace existing TS and TSSOX models, respectfully, with significant enhancement to performance resulting from improvements in the design of Audience Aura-TR (previously Aura-TO) filter capacitors. The new Aura-TR capacitors are more resolute, more dynamic and provide a more distinct sound stage. Whereas the T3 is the new “standard” Teflon conditioner, the T4 is the top version that includes several more technologies for all out performance:

• In addition to the Aura-TR capacitors, the T4 includes new Audience Hidden Treasure duplex outlets and is treated throughout by a proprietary Ultra High Voltage Process. Singularly, each of these three new technologies provides a notable improvement. However, in combination, these three new technologies, achieve a truly stunning result. The Audience Hidden Treasure duplexes set a new benchmark in the world of AC outlets. The HT duplexes, compared to the previous rhodium/copper outlets, are more resolute yet smoother at the same time. They are more rich and analog sounding much like going from CD to LP. Selling as a standalone product at $199 each, we feel that the HT duplexes are the very best available AC outlets, bar none!

•  The entire circuit of the T4 is treated by an Audience proprietary Ultra High Voltage process. This treatment delivers voltages upwards of 1 million volts at specific pulse modulations, frequencies and amplitudes, in differing ratios, to individual, and all combined conductive constituents. This unique and special process creates predictable paths through the crystalline grain structure of the various metals, including connection points, and provides a continuity and integrity to the complete AC path. The audible result of the UHVP is one of improved resolution, dynamics, and more pristine sound stage.

• The T4 also includes 1) the previously optional S filter, a large core passive balun transformer providing additional filtering over a broader frequency spectrum down into the critical 20-30Hz range and 2) Audience Au24 SX 6-nines OCC powerChord wire throughout.

• The T4 and T3 both contain long standing Audience features like the star wired ground plane, micro-vibration damping of all fitter capacitors, gold over copper lug connectors and cryogenic treatment throughout the entire AC circuit. The T4 and T3 both contain heavy duty low impedance magnetic circuit breakers and special proprietary invisible surge protection. PowerChords are connected via locking 20A Neutrik AC Powercon connectors for the finest AC powerChord connection, bar none.

Many years of evolutionary research and development, with great attention to detail, are hallmark signatures of all Audience adeptResponse power conditioners.

All units previous to the T3 and T4 can be retrofitted with the new HT duplexes and UHVP treatments for enthusiastic improvements.

Audience Expands Hidden Treasure Lineup with Debut of

Premium AC Wall Receptacle and High-Performance Circuit Breaker

 

San Marcos, CA, February 28, 2019 – Audience has added two new products to its Hidden Treasure AC in-wall power solutions lineup with the introduction of its Hidden Treasure High Definition AC Wall Receptacle and Hidden Treasure High Definition AC Circuit Breaker. Both employ Audience’s proprietary MORRE (Musically Optimized Reduction of Resistive Energies) technologies to deliver cleaner, more phase-correct AC power and yield better sound and performance from audio/video components.

 

 

The new products join Audience’s Hidden Treasure HDAC in-wall power cable to provide a complete, ultimate-quality in-wall power-delivery solution for high-end audio, custom-installation, home theater, multiroom and other in-wall applications.

The Hidden Treasure High Definition AC (HDAC) Wall Receptacle features high-purity copper-core, rhodium-plated contacts that provide a tight grip and the most secure connection available. The duplex receptacle is rated for up to 20 amps and can accommodate up to 10 AWG wiring. The receptacle’s body is made from rugged thermoplastic nylon.

 

The receptacle is treated with Audience’s EHVP Extreme High-Voltage Process, which is a MORRE technology aspect that applies high voltages in specific combinations. This proprietary technique aligns the crystalline structure of the various metals used in the receptacle to create more efficient “pathways” for signals to travel through the materials.

 

“Our new Hidden Treasure wall receptacle can improve the detail, dynamics, imaging and spatial reproduction of a high-performance audio system,” said John McDonald, president of Audience. “Audience has extremely demanding performance standards that must be met before we introduce any new product, and we’re particularly pleased about the sonic benefits of our new wall receptacle.”

Audience’s Hidden Treasure HDAC Circuit Breaker adds proprietary MORRE treatments to a customer-supplied circuit breaker. “There are many brands and models of circuit breakers on the market, but our process now makes it practical and feasible to upgrade virtually any of them, simply by having customers send in their particular units,” noted McDonald. This also ensures compatibility with a customer’s existing electrical panel and system.

At the factory the circuit breakers go through the EHVP treatment. In addition, nanoparticle damping materials are selectively applied to reduce mechanical resonances, along with EMI and RF electrical interference. The circuit breakers are not disassembled in any way during the processes. “Once a customer gets their unit back from us, it’s transformed into a Hidden Treasure HDAC Circuit Breaker, which is designed to reduce noise and interference and provide greater sonic clarity,” McDonald noted. Hidden Treasure circuit breakers maintain all the compliance and safety specifications of the original unit.

When used together, the Audience Hidden Treasure wall receptacle, circuit breaker and in-wall power cable deliver the highest possible in-wall solution for high-end systems, offering clean power that is phase-correct while blocking EMF and RF interference.

The Audience Hidden Treasure High-Definition AC Wall Receptacle is currently available at a suggested retail price of $199. The Hidden Treasure High Definition AC Circuit Breaker is available at $175 suggested retail. The customer must supply the circuit breaker or breakers. Installation should be performed by a qualified electrician.

Enjoy the Music Review of Aura-T Capacitors

“…Well, now the Aura-T joins the VH Teflon in the electrostat flavor. These caps set themselves apart from the others by having an almost impossibly ethereal, pure, and extended top-end with endless decay like only a good electrostat can…..”

10 Audio Review of Aura-T Capacitors

10audio

“The Aura-T capacitors will never be replaced! These are exotic dancers of the Kingdom of Audio, removing well-known veils to enable the listener to hear far deeper into every note than was ever possible, even compared to the exceptionally transparent Placette Passive Line Stage. The improvements are noticeable throughout the frequency range, but especially in the upper midrange and treble where a higher level of information has been revealed. Voices are more present in the room. Percussion instruments have a “striking” immediacy that obviously narrows the differences between live and recorded music.”

Soundstage Review for Auricap Capacitors June 2004

soundstage
“The Auricapped 21A sounds fundamentally neutral, but its presentation has notable bloom and, as with the very best tube preamps, the ability to portray space — around performers and as an entity itself. Its sound is spacious. There is no tubey glaze, but also no etch or edge. Instead, there is clarity, vigor, and grace. Nobody will say the 21A is laid-back, but it doesn’t sound forward either. It walks the line of perspective as few preamps do, tipping neither one way nor the other. Its performance is accomplished — very detailed and very enjoyable.”
