IsoTek is a British company specialising in A/V power optimisation products. IsoTek’s award-winning power cleaning systems, designed specifically for use with hi-fi and home theatre electronics, can dramatically improve your system’s performance.
Expect a quieter noise floor, more extended frequency range, better imaging with a more stable sound stage with no loss of timing or dynamics, a fact that has been proven by consistently positive reviews and awards over the last 15 years.
Why ‘dirty power’ is a problem
The power that enters your audio components from the wall socket is distorted by noise on the mains supply. Sensitive equipment, particularly audio electronics cannot perform to their full potential. The biggest two offenders are Differential Mode and Common Mode mains noise.
Differential Mode Noise
Differential Mode mains noise is created by all electrical appliances – everything with a power supply, in fact. This includes your microwave oven, your television and your computer, as well as every hi-fi component you own. Take a look around your home and count how many devices you have plugged into your power sockets, each of these will be corrupting the mains sine wave and eroding the quality of the AC power that feeds your high-quality audio system.
Common mode noise
Common Mode mains noise is often referred to as RFI – Radio Frequency Interference. Imagine how much data is transmitted by smartphones and tablets – cheap power cables act as aerials for these unwanted frequencies. The use of wifi and wireless technology is increasing at an exponential rate. Just think about all the data that you send and receive on your smart phone. We are bathed in a sea of Common Mode noise.
The need for clean power
The escalation of mains-borne ‘noise’ means that the need for clean power technology has never been greater. ‘Differential mode noise’ is especially exacerbated by the switch-mode power supplies that are common in many modern devices, from computers to kitchen appliances. ‘Common mode noise’ is ever-increasing thanks to wireless networking in the home, with mobile phones, wi-fi and Bluetooth soaking us in a sea of airborne interference.
The quality of electricity we feed our audio and AV systems has a profound effect on performance, and that’s where IsoTek’s unique clean-power solutions come in. Without a clean power source, you are only accessing around 80 per cent of your system’s full potential.
IsoTek’s unique power cleaning systems, designed specifically for use with audio and audio visual electronics, can dramatically improve your systems performance. Expect a quieter noise floor, more extended frequency range, better imaging with a more stable sound stage, with no loss of timing or dynamics, a fact that has been proven by consistently positive reviews and awards over the last 15 years.

Polaris delivers improved performance, protection and astonishing value for money. Removes Common Mode and Differential Mode mains noise. RFI reduction is 30dB. Independent outlets stop Differential Mode cross contamination. Unique delta filter topology improves product performance. 13,500A of instantaneous protection, featuring IsoTek’s unique sequential protection system.
EVO3 Aquarius – RRP $2,499
One of the most cost-effective upgrades you can buy for any high-quality audio system, Aquarius is a multi-award winning six-way mains conditioner that redefined the power cleaning market.
Two high-current outlets are provided for amplifiers, subwoofers and so on, with four medium-current sockets for other components. RFI reduction 60dB. Six unique conditioning stages ensure optimal isolation between all outlets, eliminating Differential Mode cross-contamination.
EVO3 Genesis – RRP $24,999
A revolutionary benchmark in clean-power technology for high-performance audio and AV systems, Genesis creates an entirely new, extremely low-distortion mains sine wave using multiple generators – a unique component, and uniquely effective.
Exceeds 85dB of noise reduction, extending down to zero Hz. Stabilises voltage to 230V +/- 1%. Independent outlets – no outlets are connected together, stopping Differential Mode mains noise cross-contamination. 600W of totally clean power for front-end components. It’s the world’s first multiple mains generator.
