REFERENCE PowerIsolator (RPI) shares more technology with the ultimate OPUS PowerIsolator than Transparent PowerIsolator (PI). The US version of RPI has 8 outlets. All outlets have surge protection, broadband noise filtration, and power factor correction. More precise circuit layout than PI also enhances electrical isolation between outlet banks in RPI.
RPI power factor correction is more effective than that which is incorporated in the PI design. Power factor correction promotes superior tonal fidelity and more realizable power for your components. The RPI parallel filter circuit design does not restrict current.
REFERENCE PowerIsolator has a hybrid aluminum and non-magnetic thermoformed polymer enclosure that promotes electromagnetic field expansion and allows more fluid and robust dynamics than PI which has an all-aluminum chassis. Internal cross bracing and additional proprietary epoxy loading also damp resonances and vibrations to a greater degree.
All Transparent power conditioners have a strong connected components warranty in the event that a power surge causes damage to your components.
The Reference PowerIsolator (whatever the socketry at the rear) features a quartet of separate noise-isolated parallel filter banks. It also features power factor correction, and – as a mark of how our industry is changing concerning digital audio – a Gigabit Ethernet isolator with surge protection. Unlike many such boxes that merely use a fuse, the Transparent uses a parallel hydraulic circuit breaker. The amp-heavy, curved, and very dark grey box features extruded aluminium side-bars and cross bracing holding a rigid polymer shell, and – like the contents of the filter boxes in Transparent’s higher-end cables, including the Reference power cords recommended for use with this PowerIsolator – are epoxy-loaded to reduce vibration and resonance, as well as add mass to the overall unit.
- 8 high-current, grounded, noise-isolated USA outlets.
- 4 separate noise-isolated banks for all types of components including power amplifiers.
- Gigabit Ethernet surge protection
- Parallel filter circuit design does not restrict current.
- Parallel hydraulic magnetic circuit breaker provides failsafe circuit protection without limiting current.
Good condition. No box no power cord. Just the unit.
