IsoTek Aquarius & Sirius Comparisons Film

IsoTek Aquarius & Sirius - 13th Note HiFi Reviews

In this short film I look at comparing an IsoTek Sirius to an Aquarius and I too look at comparisons to a bog standard, run of the mill power bar of the Audiophile type.

In this case my Titan Audio Styx power-bar which costs £125.

What is interesting about power conditioners is that they are so system dependent. Experiences of the effects of tone, bass and soundstage are common. So too is the choking effects on the dynamics of the power amp(s) in a HiFi

Who are these conditioners for? What do they do? Are they value for money. Just some of the normal questions I answer in my balanced film which is comparison based, as ever.

Interested to read why conditioners make a difference in HiFi and what common mode and differential mode noise is, feel free to check out my full written article here
