Torus Power Targets Mid-Range Market with New POWERBLOCK Isolation Transformers

New POWERBLOCK lineup preview at ISE 2018 showcases benefits of toroidal isolation power conditioning and management

Toronto, ON, Canada (January 30, 2018) Torus Power, maker of uncompromising, clean, isolation transformer-based power components for AV systems, will unveil an entirely new product line at ISE 2018 booth February 6 – 9, 2018 in the RAI Amsterdam. With the introduction of POWERBLOCK (PB Series) toroidal isolation transformers with compact footprints and rugged construction, Torus Power brings its unrivaled performance and protection to a new market of home theater enthusiasts and audiophiles.

A differentiated mid-range line to accommodate smaller AV systems and the need to isolate high-performance source equipment, Torus Power brings the benefits of toroidal isolation to any home theater or two-channel audio system where the owner is seeking clean power to enhance audio and video performance.

Torus Power products magnetically isolate equipment from dirty AC power to dramatically reduce the noise floor, enhance the dynamic range, and improve the soundstage and headroom to elevate the audio experience. In high-end video systems, power isolation increases clarity, creating brighter colors and blacker blacks.

Also, Torus Power toroidal isolation transformers protect systems from the effects of power surges and spikes that can damage delicate AV equipment.

Isolated Components Deliver Superior Audio and Video Quality and Protection
The new POWERBLOCK PB 4 CE for the European market and the POWERBLOCK PB 4 515R, which will be available in Southeast Asia, isolate outlet pairs to separate source components from power components for a cleaner signal, resulting in an enhanced audio video experience.

PB 4 CE and PB 4 515R models are designed for 50 Hz markets using 220V – 240V and boast a small footprint weighing just 35 lbs., making them easy to fit in any home system.

Every Project Deserves Quality Sound and Video
For smaller applications where it’s only necessary to protect a few source components, speakers, a TV, or a projector, the PB 2 CE and PB 2 515R offer enough outlets to plug in the most expensive AV equipment in a system, protecting these components and improving the audio video quality within a limited budget.

Like their slightly larger counterparts, the PB 2 CE and PB 2 515R operate at 50 to 60 Hz with an input voltage between 220V – 240V, and weigh just 25 lbs. each.

Protecting AV Investments
High-end projects demand the ultimate in power protection. But even smaller systems represent a significant investment to their owners. The introduction of the POWERBLOCK series makes it possible to power and protect any size system with Torus Power’s proprietary technology.

“We’ve taken a virtual ‘shrink ray’ to our big and heavy toroidal transformer, enabling us to offer a lightweight, compact unit that powers and protects AV components in applications where our full-size power products aren’t necessary,” says Torus Power COO and President Kevin Main. “The benefits to isolating power for a clean signal to dramatically improve audio and video performance are well-documented. Now even smaller home theater systems and two-channel audio applications can enjoy enhanced performance and superior protection.”
