Torus Power Tames Unruly Electricity in CEDIA’s Best Integrated Home, Level III, Installed by Land & Sea Entertainment

Torus Power Tames Unruly Electricity in CEDIA’s Best Integrated Home, Level III, Installed by Land & Sea Entertainment

When homeowners update their home’s technology, Torus Power delivers optimal performance though power management and power isolation.

A home teeming with cutting-edge technology takes some extra TLC to ensure reliable and consistent operation. It’s a philosophy that integration firm Land & Sea Entertainment of San Diego promotes and provides to every high-end smart home project. When it came time to start planning this one, Land & Sea Entertainment owner Terry Morton knew it just had to start with Torus Power. Morton immediately reached out to Ross Whitney, Torus Power’s technical guru, to do the equipment load calculations and start planning out the power foundation for this project. “It’s great when we are brought into a project in the planning stages,” says Whitney. “It gives us a chance to review the power demand needed to optimize system performance and ensure that nothing is overlooked. In this case, the Torus Power WM 100 BAL TVSS Wall Mount isolation transformer was the right fit for the job.”

Protection for a Power-Hungry Home

Carefully curated AV, networking, and control solutions contribute to the overall convenience and enjoyment of a smart home environment, but “even the best devices on the planet won’t work as intended if you don’t properly manage the power coming into the environment,” says Morton. “We know that we have to protect high-performance products from damage caused by lightning strikes, power surges, and other electrical anomalies, but not everyone understands that performance and reliability are the real added benefits that Torus Power brings to the table.”
Hidden problems, noise artifacts, and voltage fluctuations in the electrical system can plague a household and is the reason why the wall-mounted isolation transformer from Torus Power helped Land & Sea Entertainment win CEDIA’s 2020 Best Integrated Home, Level III award for a particularly power-hungry project in Reno, Nevada. “The owners never see the Torus Power isolation transformer, but it’s one of the most important elements of the home,” says Morton “It’s so critical to the operation of electronic systems that we make it a priority for every home, not just this residence.”

System Updates Demand Better Power Management

Installed in a specially designed utility room during a major renovation of the home, the 100-amp wall mount panel works behind-the-scenes, responding in less than 5 nanoseconds and managing surges up to 80,000 Amps. The panel incorporates a special design using a commercial grade TVSS surge model on the input side of the isolation transformer and the company’s renowned Series Mode Surge Suppression (SMSS) module on the output side of the transformer. The Torus Power unit also provides noise filtration of EMI and RFI interference and isolates all the sensitive electronic equipment from voltage line noise and artifacts. All of this adds up to the ultimate protection and performance for all the electronic components in the system, including a state-of-the-art Crestron control system, AV distribution system feeding content to 20 displays and dozens of loudspeakers, security system, and high-speed networking system. These and other systems replaced technology that Land & Sea had installed in the home in the early 2000s—a project that also received a CEDIA award in 2003.

But times change and so does technology, making the Torus Power WM 100 BAL TVSS all the more essential to the year-long tech overhaul. As Morton explains, the update was so extensive that the home not only needed protection from electrical disturbances but also a better source of power. “We worked with the homeowners to update their obsolete 400-amp main electrical panel to today’s electrical code and safety specifications,” says Morton. “Plus, to adequately feed 15,600 watts of power to 22 James Loudspeakers in a 10.4.8 Dolby Atmos configuration in the theater, as well as another 14,000 watts of power to 17 JBL Synthesis and James Loudspeaker speakers in secondary media location, we loaded equipment racks with commercial-grade DriveCore amplifiers from Crown.” Needless to say, this equated to a significant power draw—all the more reason to add the Torus isolation transformer to power and protect every circuit.

The Foundation of an Exceptional Smart Home

As it protects, the Torus Power wall mount unit delivers an even, consistent flow of electricity to an array of sophisticated devices and systems that make this residence such a show-stopper and exemplifies the importance of proper power management and isolation to the well-being and operational excellence of a smart home environment.

High-End Home Theater Dazzles Despite Dirty Electricity

High-End Home Theater Dazzles Despite Dirty Electricity

Reference-grade Dolby Atmos home theater combats a problematic power grid thanks to Torus Power Isolation Transformers.

All it takes is one electrical surge or spike to damage a piece of home theater equipment. This threat is very real in Russia, where most of the country is fed by a single electrical grid. Home to several industries, Moscow is particularly prone to electrical disturbances. Every time a big piece of machinery turns on, the power grid takes a significant hit. The resulting electrical surges can affect nearby residences, putting sensitive electronic gear at significant risk.  When a home has been outfitted with some of the finest AV equipment on the planet, protection from power disturbances is just as important to the entertainment experience as the quality of the speakers, amplifiers, processors, AV sources, and video projector.

“When we started plans for a custom theater in a large luxury home in Moscow, we knew the quality of the power grid was questionable,” says Christian Søgren Nielsen, creative director and founder of Danish AV integration firm CSN Teknik. “It’s better to be safe than sorry, especially when installing such high-end gear, so no ordinary surge protector would do for this client. We needed a heavy-duty power conditioner, like the RM 16 Power Isolation Transformer from Torus Power.”

To ensure that every audio, video, and control component would receive clean, protected power, CSN Teknik installed six RM 16 Power Conditioners into the newly built theater. Fully protected from electrical disturbances and lightning strikes are a Dolby Atmos system comprised of Wisdom Audio speakers, amplifiers, and controllers; Trinnov Audio processor, Barco dual-laser 4K HDR video projector, Kaleidescape media server and player, Blu-ray Disc players, Apple TV, and RTI home theater control system. “We didn’t want to leave anything to chance, especially considering the instability of the power grid and the amount of construction that was happening in the building as we were installing the theater,” Nielsen relates. “There’s no doubt in my mind that the Torus Power units saved us and our selective customers from the worst-case scenario.” 

As it safeguards the reference-grade equipment from dirty electricity, the Torus power transformers ensure full dynamic range from the audio equipment and stunning imagery from video gear. CSN Teknik optimized the audio and video presentation even further by constructing and designing the home theater for pristine acoustics. Working in tandem with the architect and other craftsmen, CSN Teknik employed a “room-within-a-room” construction technique to prevent sound from entering or leaving the space—important when neighboring units are located directly above, below, and adjacent to the seventh-floor residence. This construction method completely decouples the envelope of the home theater from the residence’s interior and exterior walls so that “No extraneous noise would interfere with the home theater presentation, nor would audio from the powerful Wisdom system disturb other occupants of the building, fulfilling the customer’s wish for absolute silence outside the theater and killer sound inside it,” Nielsen says. Insulating the home theater also gave CSN Teknik a “clean slate” from which to calibrate the audio to perfection.

It’s been four years since CSN Teknik completed the home theater, so construction of neighboring units—an initial source of electrical issues–has subsided. Yet, problems with the power grid remain. the six Torus power conditioners combined with high-caliber AV equipment and proper acoustical design maintain an entertainment environment that’s just as powerful and enjoyable today as the day it was installed.
