Torus Power has announced that 17-inch non rack-mountable versions of all Torus Power models up to 20-amps will become available with new cosmetics in both silver and black faceplates for the consumer market. Additionally, the popular RM-15 will be reduced to a 2u rack size and with a lower MSRP of $2000 (US). A complete range of rack-mountable “Pro” models remains in the Torus lineup.
Torus Power has also announced that their AVR Series (Automatic Voltage Regulation) will be available with the new consumer cosmetic treatment in 120 volt units up to the 20 amp version (RM-15, RM-20, RM-20 BAL). International AVR models (230/240 volt) will be available in 4 amp, 8 amp and 16 amp configurations. The AVR line provides all the advantages of the original Torus Power designs, such as ultra-clean AC power, complete isolation from the outside power grid and series-mode surge suppression, plus the added benefit of stabilized voltage to connected equipment. “We identified a market need for non-industrial looking consumer models up to 20-amps in size, both in the standard Torus Power series and the AVR series of products,” explained sales VP James Tanner. “We now have attractive packaging available that looks quite at home in any A/V system–while offering a substantial increase in performance and protection from unwanted surges,” Tanner added.
The new Torus Power consumer models range in MSRP from the 2.5A version at $995 (US) to $3000 (US) for the 20A model. The Torus Power AVR series with the new cosmetic treatment run $3000 (US) for the 15A version and $4000 for the 20A models, balanced or unbalanced. All Torus Power products are backed by a 5-year limited warranty. New models will ship Q4, 2009.
About Torus Power: The design objective behind the Torus power isolation units (PIU’s) was to provide a no-compromise AC power conditioning solution to improve audio/video equipment performance based on true isolation, as well as equipment protection based on non-MOV (metal oxide varistors) surge suppression technology. Many products in the PIU category are simple filters and do not provide isolation between the outside power grid and the inside power source. The Torus PIU’s deliver true isolation along with low source impedance and ample instantaneous current for today’s most sophisticated and powerful audiophile amplifiers, home theater systems, and video playback equipment.
