pure power one 5.0
Starve a Fever – Feed an Amp!!
The Silver Circle Audio pure power one 5.0 is an outgrowth and upgrade of our popular series of power conditioners. Some audiophiles with high-current amps requested a power conditioner with immense headroom, and thus was born the “5.0.” As you no doubt know, the 5.0 designation refers to the 5.0 kVa transformer in the unit. This massive transformer weighs in at over 65 pounds. When we were brainstorming the design criteria of this unit, we decided to pull out all the stops. Everything in the pure power one 5.0 is massively overbuilt.
Everything about the 5.0 was designed to provide the user with years of absolute trouble free operation. The primary and secondary of the massive transformer act as huge reservoirs of current instantaneously available when needed for extreme dynamics. The electrostatic shield between primary and secondary ensures electrically quiet operation. The neon front panel light was replaced with an LED that is user-replaceable and should last for 10 years.
A few of the well-known owners of the 5.0:
Harry Pearson, Founder, The Absolute Sound – HP has 3 of the units in operation at Sea Cliff
Jim Hannon, publisher, The Absolute Sound
