Directly to my Torus(s),sold off my shunyatas as my audition of the Torus was holy crap.
Major step up for me and that's with dedicated lines.

Those Torus units are supposed to be great units. On paper they seem very similar to my Furman IT-Reference and I would love to someday demo either a CS20, CS20 AVR, CS 20 BAL or CS 20 BAL AVR just to see/hear what performance differences there might be compared to my SPR-20i/IT-Reference setup.

Of all my components these are keepers as they were a major upgrade.
As I upgraded gear so did the Torus.
Went from a 15a balanced to 15+20a balanced(sources and amps),
now a 60a bal(for my 28B's)and the 20a bal for components.
It was basically WTF when I put in the 20a with the 15a(separating)my amps,
back then were 3X7Bsst's and 2X4Bsst's.
I guess the 15a couldn't handle all those Bryston's at once.
definately I was shocked at how authoritive my system had become, or UNLEASHED..

Wow, that much of a difference, very nice. For the 60a unit did you get the component unit or the wall unit? Did you have to do some special wiring to install the 60?

I use Transparent Power Isolator Reference or PIR feeding my Esoteric P03/D03 and
ARC Ref 40, and I can't listen without it. without PIR, bass is worse, high is more annoying.
Now looking to add one more to feed Moon W7M power amps. May be buying Purepower 1050 or Accuphase 510 to replace Transparent duty, and use this Transparent with Moon amps. the other options are buyinh RSA Maxim to feed power amps. or Buying Dmitri to
feed entire system and sell Transparent PIR.

OK, I've tried it by myself. Feeding power from RSA Maxim to my W7M mono blocks.
I am sure dynamic and fun was reduced by half. But it can be that Maxim need more time
to make internal caps and coils more saturated.

I recently started using an MC602, from my previous MC202. It's a different, more transparent sound, for certain.

I've always plugged into a PS Audio PPP with my MC202, and did the same with the MC602.

I hadn't tried the MC602 direct into the wall, and I was under the impression that I might like it better into the wall, so Monday, I tried back and forth direct to the wall and into the PPP a few times.

The result actually surprised me...

The MC602 into the PPP was worlds better. The bass was deeper, and the extension on the top end improved, although not as greatly as the depth and quality of bass.
Instrumentation became more defined and in its' own space, making for a marked increase in resolution.

I'm really happy I tried it, as it confirmed the value of the PPP in my system. I'm interested to hear how other power conditioners might improve upon the PPP in the future, although I may wait to try something else until I get a 20 amp line put in.

I can answer for him and use a quote. His electrician told him.

"you have enough 240 power here to run a laundry mat."
