Testimonials (on all Audience conditioners)
"And in my experience, audibly superior to every other "conditioner" I have tried out ... It is, to use a word from the earliest days of the high fidelity movement, simply much more transparent than the competition. The Audience lets you hear more ambient information, more definition and articulation of the musical images ... "
- Harry Pearson, The Absolute Sound, 2008 Golden Ear Award Winner
"Audience Adept Response aR6 should be more than satisfying to any stereo music lover. I can only highly recommend it to anyone who is pursuing the high end reproduction system. $2,800 is a lot of money. But when you're building the high end system you don't want to save with quality power handling. It's a building block of high quality playback system."

"It significantly improves the performance of both my Blue Circle and Manley electronics, making them better versions of what they already are. A wonderful little box."
- Bob Neill, Positive Feedback Online, Writers Choice Award for 2007
"The improvement in audio quality the aR6 produces is significant and easily audible -- it gives music an exciting character that's habit-forming ... the aR6 represents your sonic direction and price point, you can't do better."
- Doug Blackburn, Soundstage, 11/07 (read the review)
"I am now hearing deeper, and with greater definition and detail into the music. Most importantly, that slight metallic sound I had in my system before placing the aR6 in my rig is now gone. Both micro and macro dynamics improved along with soundstaging which is now larger. Soundstaging has become more three dimensional on all planes of the musical stage. Images that sounded slightly opaque and recessed are now more pronounced and brought to the forefront and with greater clarity."
- Jeff Parks, Positive Feedback Online, 3/08 (read the review)
"The Adept Response made a phenomenal difference in my system. Fundamentally, it improved the clarity of recordings by eliminating a previously undetected lack of definition, without introducing any brightness or most importantly any coloration. That is worth repeating. I did not hear any coloration from the Adept Response or any obscuring of the rhythm of the music. The Adept Response just made every recording I listened to more natural and in turn more musically engaging."

"I've used a wide variety of power-conditioning systems over the years, but none has ever produced the type or magnitude of benefits I got with the Adept Response."
- Brian Damkroger, Stereophile Recommended Component
"I can say with certainty the Adept Response is among the elite of AC conditioners, and if you've not tried one, or haven't had much success with other brands, then you need to give Audience a call."
- Clement Perry, Stereo Times (read the review)
"The Audience adept Response is perfect in every way ... At $3800, the Audience adept Response is not inexpensive, but given its ability to improve the sound of everything connected to it, I feel that it is worth every penny. Audio gear is always about compromise. The Audience adeptResponse is the first and only component I have experienced that represents zero compromise"
"I have a fair amount of experience with high-performance AC power conditioners, but the Adept Response took me by surprise. Comparing my system's sound with the components plugged into the Adept Response and straight into the wall, I heard a wide range of obvious, musically significant improvements ... The result is a cleaner overall sound, better bass definition, a more spacious presentation, and greater ease and involvement."
"Conclusion. The Audience Adept Response line conditioner is a beautiful machine to gaze upon and use. Unlike so many other line conditioners with substantial prices, the Audience does give one reason to feel that the hardware involved justifies the price charged ... Treble with the Adept Response is superb, coaxing some of the finest highs I've heard out of a number of components. But, it's the clean dynamic action that I've obtained with the Adept Response that to my way of thinking sets it apart from other AC line conditioning devices that I've used in the past."
- Martin DeWulf, Bound for Sound, Issues 166 & 170
"I've used nearly a dozen different "power conditioners" over the last ten years or so, each promising spectacular sonic results. The only one that delivers sound with utter purity, clarity, and freedom from extraneous electrical grunge and gremlins is the AUDIENCE "adeptResponse" ... a product, in my overburdened world of recording work, I regard to be on the top rung of contemporary power conditioning excellence. When I have a project that must have all of its elements as technically perfect as possible the adeptResponse twelve outlet box sits at the outset of my "on location" recording rig.

High Resolution Power Conditioner With Power Factor Correction, RF/Noise Filtering and Transient Suppression
As noted in Robert Harley's quote the Adept Response will elevate the performance of your audio/video system to new heights like no other power conditioner. In addition to superior power protection, the Adept Response delivers the ultimate audio/video experience.
The Adept Response High Resolution Power Conditioner is a cutting edge design providing the best power conditioning possible without limiting dynamics. Since power must respond quickly and completely to the demands of program material we believe it is imperative that power conditioning components present a low impedance power path while providing wide bandwidth noise reduction. Conventional power conditioners simply cannot approach the bandwidth/impedance characteristics of the Adept Response while still offering effective noise filtration and high voltage surge protection. Exclusive Audience technology achieves far greater performance for all audio and video components.
Of the power conditioning products on the market today few allow your playback system to attain full dynamic range or reproduce subtle dynamic contrasts accurately. The other culprit afflicting most power conditioning products is the ubiquitous MOV. (Metal Oxide Varistor) The MOV is a sacrificial device. This means it wears down over time until it fails completely. Its purpose is to clamp high voltage transients safely to ground instead of through your equipment. This would be fine if it didn't break down and behave like the world's worst capacitor across your power line, storing energy and releasing it as performance robbing, time delayed distortion into your audio system. The effect is quite audible. For surge protection the Adept Response employs a non-wearing type high voltage transient suppression. Adept Response uses only the finest conducting, filtering and transient suppression components. Even the power switch is exceptional, a very high quality magnetic circuit breaker. The advantage over thermal circuit breakers is that thermal breakers increase in resistance as power demand increases, causing heat dependent, resistive modulation of the incoming voltage. This effectively reduces the power available to your equipment just when you need it most. The design employed in the Adept Response provides for the most natural flow of music.

The state of the art inductive components used in the Adept Response power conditioner add no significant series resistance. This maintains a low impedance power path to your playback system. Also, the Adept Response performs partial power factor correction. This helps restore natural dynamics by bringing the AC voltage and current into a better phase relationship allowing a more efficient transfer of power. With the Adept Response as your power conditioner all aspects of the audio/video performance are greatly improved. Your playback system will no longer be starved of clean high quality power. The result is realistic, beautiful audio and stunning video resolution.
The outlets are individually filtered and double filtered from the other outlet providing maximum component to component isolation. An entire audio or video system can easily be powered by the same conditioner, including everything from digital components and phonograph preamplifiers to power amplifiers. This extensive noise filtering creates a lower noise floor and improves low level resolution, providing superior sound stage presentation. Power amplifiers plugged into the Adept Response display increased dynamics and perform as if they were more powerful.
The Adept Response warranty period is ten years. Audience will repair or replace any factory defective Adept Response power product for the warranty period.
