$499 Special Offer on the 2-Outlet Audience aR2p Line Filter
Not only were we able to scarf up the Audience cables used in systems or on display at CES, but we also managed to grab a half dozen of Audience's super Adept Response aR2P two outlet line conditioners. As you can see from the image, these devices plug right into the wall, so no additional AC cable is needed to filter two components, or plug an outlet strip into it. A serious line filter: effective way beyond the price!
Regularly $695; on special for $499 while special purchase supplies last.
aR2p and aR2p-T (Teflon version)
Adept Response High Resolution Power Conditioners with RF noise filtration, overload protection and transient suppression.
Replacing the previous aR1p single outlet plug version Adept Response, the aR2p sports a high current Hubbell hospital grade duplex and high quality 15A magnetic circuit breaker on/off swich. For ultra high resolution the aR2p is also made with optional Aura-T "Teflon" capacitors.
aR2p / aR2pTO / aR2pTOS
There are three products in the aR2p series the standard aR2p ($695), the higher end aR2pT ($1600) and the supercharged aR2pTOS ($2075). The aR2p provides surge suppression up to 20,000 amps. The aR2pT employs Audience Teflon capacitors. Overall performance, including transparency and resolution, is improved. The aR2pTOS offers everything the previous model contains in an extreme version that is wired with all OFCC wire and the Audience S filter power conditioner option. This version began as a special offer to a few customers as a modification. However, it is so good that Audience decided to add it as the flagship of the aR2p product range. The bottom line is that it is quite a bit more advanced than the other two units.
The “O” part of the upgrade designates the use of OHNO oxygen-free continuous cast copper (OCC), 6 nines purity mono-crystal wiring throughout. This is Audience’s top of the line AC power wire design specifically applied for the internal wiring of Audience power conditioners. It yields improved resolution, greater musical “speed” and immediacy and better sound-staging.
The “X” designation indicates the use of new rhodium plated copper internal contacts in the AC outlets. The copper contacts provide the very highest conductivity and the quality rhodium plating prevents oxidation of the copper. These high conductivity receptacles improve virtually every aspect of a system’s audio reproduction.
Further, all new Audience power conditioners now have gold plated copper forks to connect the power conditioners’ filter capacitors to the AC duplex outlets. This construction replaces the previous tin plating-over-copper forks. The new forks provide a noticeably more refined musical presentation.
