Silver Circle Audio's Pure Power One 5.0
Power Conditioners by Silver Circle Audio
Starve a Fever – Feed an Amp!!
The Silver Circle Audio pure power one 5.0 and 5.0se are outgrowths and upgrades 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. General Abrams was heard to say he wanted a tank built like the 5.0. Oh well.
The pp1 5.0 debuted at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest and was met with high praise. Although it is nigh on impossible to determine what a power or line conditioner is doing without hearing it before and after insertion, the synergy and extremely musical sound in the Acoustic Sounds Room at RMAF was in part due to the Silver circle Audio cabling, the incredible gear that Clark Williams put together for the show, and the pristine power provided by the pp1’s. See the report of the 2006 RMAF for more.
