The following is a press release issued by Audience.
San Marcos, CA | October 11, 2019 – Audience today announced the availability of its new adeptResponse T4 and T3 AC power conditioners, upgraded from the company’s previous TSSOX and TSOX models. Available in 2, 6, and 12-outlet versions, the T4 and T3 now feature the company’s newly refined Aura-TR Teflon filter capacitors, which replace the previous Aura-TO version. These capacitors, designed by Audience to be the ultimate premium capacitors, have been improved to provide even greater clarity and dynamic range than those previously used.
In addition, the T4 adeptResponse power conditioners incorporate Audience’s Hidden Treasure duplex AC outlets, which feature high-purity copper-core, rhodium-plated contacts that provide a tight grip for the most secure connection available. The Hidden Treasure outlets are treated cryogenically and by a proprietary UHVP (ultra-high voltage process) and incorporate RF blocking crystals that prevent unwanted RF noise from entering the AC pathway. The sonic results of these enhancements are improved detail, dynamics, imaging and spatial reproduction. “We feel the Hidden Treasure wall outlets are the finest AC receptacles on the market, bar none,” McDonald noted.
Also, for a more efficient transfer of electrical energy, the T4 power conditioners are further treated with Audience’s UHVP throughout the entire electrical circuit. The UHVP treatment applies upwards of one million volts, in specific pulse combinations, frequencies and amplitudes to align the crystalline structure of the entire conductive path. The entire circuit is also cryogenically treated.
“In designing the T4 and T3 we found that each of the three upgrades separately provided a notably enhanced performance and a more involving musical presentation to a significant degree,” said John McDonald, president of Audience. “In the T4 models, the implementation of all three upgrades achieved a synergy that was remarkably better than what we’d ever heard before.”
The T4 adeptResponse power conditioners also incorporate Audience’s S filter section, comprised of a large-core balun transformer. The S filter circuitry provides additional filtering over a broader frequency spectrum down into the critical 20-30 kHz range, to lower the noise floor even further and enable more low-level musical information to be revealed. The T4 models utilize Audience Au24 SX powerChord 6-nines purity OCC mono-crystal wiring throughout.
The T4 and T3 power conditioners include previous refinements such as state-of-the-art noise filtering, isolation and surge protection welded rather than mechanically fastened connections; gold-plated copper forks that connect the power conditioners’ filter capacitors to the AC duplex outlets; magnetic circuit breaker power switches; carefully engineered internal grounding, and more.
The Audience T4 and T3 adeptResponse power conditioners are currently available at prices starting at $1,850 (aR2p-T3) up to $11,400 (aR12-T4).
The Hidden Treasure AC wall receptacles and the Audience UHVP Ultra-High Voltage Process can also be retrofitted and added to previous Audience adeptResponse power conditioners.
