I was wondering if something like the Isotek Syncro, which apparently blocks DC would be a good fit for the main power cable before the P10? Obviously its a very expensive power cable and was wondering if it would be worth adding before the P10 and if it would make a improved difference or would if it be negated by the tech present in the P10?
I am going off a review that mentions this cord is perfect and will improve any power conditioner or regenerator
The final summary on the last page here mentions this
“We conclude that the Syncro is indeed an effective DC-on-AC filter just as advertised. This not only prevents power transformers from buzzing but also cleans up the overall system’s sound especially at very low volume settings. On top of that the Syncro does not appear to introduce any sonically adverse effects. It’s thus a perfect solution for replacing any wall-to-conditioner power cable and to add DC filtering to your conditioner or regenerator of choice.”
Anyone running this cable or something similar?
I am also going off another topic in another forum which mentions improvements by adding an isolation transformer before the P10. He was actually using older PS Audio Tech, funny enough.
““We then fed the output of the Airlink transformer to the P10 and got the best results for the night. There was an incremental improvement in all aspects of the sound with the warmer tonal balance of the Airlink being combined with the high resolution of the P10.””
The 6 moon review also mentions
“in designing the Syncro, the challenge for IsoTek was to offer a universal solution that would remove the unwanted and damaging DC component from the mains supply whilst allowing the maximum possible current to pass. IsoTek’s latest engineering solution and DC-blocking technology developed for the Syncro is in many ways superior in performance to a massive 12,000VA isolation transformer by delivering greater dynamic ability.”
Since the Airlink Transformer is an isolation transformer (3,000VA) then the Syncro might be an idea based on the experiment they conducted.
So this is an interesting idea for me to explore with the P10 based off these experiences. I know the P10 is already a fantastic unit but wanted to see if there is anyway to improve it based off adding this powercord. I am hoping to get someone tell me that it will either be useful and an improvement or based on their knowledge of the P10 that it wouldn’t make a difference. I’m looking for some technical insight as well as
Please let me know any experiences you guys have with these type of filtering or power cords before your powerwave components.
