Torus power solution for small, mid-sized AV installs
Toronto, ON, Canada Torus Power, maker of uncompromising, clean, isolation transformer-based power components for AV systems, announces that the PowerBlock PB 5 toroidal isolation transformer is shipping now.
Featuring a compact footprint and rugged construction, the PB 5 is designed to power and protect TVs, projectors, receivers, and source components in compact AV systems. Ideal for isolating digital components from analog equipment, the PB 5 is perfect for residential and light commercial applications where performance truly matters.
The PowerBlock Series, including the PB 5, includes some of the very best of Torus Power technology. Surge suppression and noise filtering through proprietary narrow bandwidth technology (NBT) allow sophisticated audio-visual components to deliver superior performance. Audio comes alive with a lower noise floor, better dynamics, imaging and bass, and video is notably crisper with brighter colors, deeper blacks, and a more compelling overall image.
PB 5 PowerBlock units use a 5 Amp toroidal isolation transformer to physically decouple the equipment from the power supply, delivering a lower noise floor and cleaner power for sophisticated AV systems. The resulting performance benefits are noticeable, compelling, and appealing.
Retailing for $799.00 (USD), the PowerBlock PB 5 is the most affordable product in the Torus Power lineup. An ultra-compact and portable toroidal isolation power transformer, the PB 5’s compact footprint and rugged construction make it convenient for use in almost any situation. It looks sharp on or near a component shelf, or on any floor surface. It can also be located in a nearby equipment rack or closet if space is at a premium.
The PB 5’s bigger brother, the PowerBlock PB 10, will be available soon. The PowerBlock PB 10 isolates outlet pairs to separate source components from power components or switching power supplies from linear power supplies for a cleaner signal, resulting in an enhanced audio video experience. PB 10 models are designed for 60 Hz markets using 120V and boast a small footprint weighing just 35 lbs, making them easy to fit in residential or commercial systems.
“The PowerBlock Series by Torus Power has been anxiously anticipated by our partners
and consumers alike, and we’re excited to announce that it’s now available. The proliferation of higher performance technology in a variety of applications means that clients require perfection from their equipment investment,” says Kevin Main, COO and President
of Torus Power. “A solid power foundation that is completely isolated from the power supply provides tangible and noticeable improvements in the audio and video quality in any application, from home theaters and recording studios to conference rooms and large
