" The six-way mains conditioner delivers truly dynamic audio gains. Comparing it's performance to the 'unconditioned' sound, our reference CD/Amp system enjoys greater separation and focus of sound, and greater clarity and confidence in the mid range. Bass is burlier and better integrated, too. In a nutshell? It really does work."
