Optimize - Do you know what you’re missing?
Imagine going to the eye doctor thinking you had perfect vision when you didn’t, and then seeing the world clearly and perfectly with a new set of glasses. You didn’t know what you were missing when you went in – but now that you do, you’re not going back. That’s the effect Richard Gray’s power purification products have on your AV performance.

You’ve invested a lot in your AV system because quality matters to you. So why stop there?

From a Stereophile review by Jonathan Scull:
"What is it?
Each Richard Gray's Power Company 400S comes in a powder-black rectangular housing with four gray (of course) Hubbell AC sockets on its face and an IEC mains-in fitting on the side. Whether you plug your components straight into a 400S or plug it into your system's power receptacles, the heart of the beast—the inductor—is wired in parallel, "bracketing" the AC. It offers, says RGPC, little or no resistance to the line: "Theoretically it can be placed anywhere within a circuit to provide high current on demand to all equipment within the same AC circuit. The closer your equipment is placed to the unit, the more quickly effective it becomes."
This 400S line conditioner has a few surface scratches but is certainly presentable. Includes the power cord, nothing else.
Description: Inductor-based AC line conditioner working on 100-135V AC at 60Hz, 14-gauge internal wiring, 15 amp IEC connector and plug. Detachable power cord.
Dimensions: 5.5" W, by 9" H, by 4.75" D
Weight: 20.5 lbs.

WHO WE ARE
SkyFi Audio is a small startup business specializing in the purchase, reconditioning, and reselling of select high-end audio equipment. We only buy equipment the we admire and are passionate about. No mid-fi, no gimmicks, no junk.
Each piece of equipment is cosmetically restored and fully tested in our well-equipped lab by an engineer with 30+ years of experience in the HiFi world. If it does not meet or exceed the original manufactures specifications, it will not be sold. We are very selective about the equipment we purchase, focusing on mostly analog, high-build quality, American, and European built units.
Through our sister company, which is an authorized dealer for McIntosh, Audio Research, Sonus Faber, ClearAudio, Pro-Ject Audio Systems, and Sony ES, we have access to OEM parts, service, and support. If you are local and looking for new equipment from the above-mentioned manufacturers, please drop us a line as we can arrange both sales and professional installation in the tri-state area.
We do not accept or review any offers that do not go through the official Audiogon system. We have too many items for sale and it’s nearly impossible to keep track of offers outside of the official system. Please don’t message, email, or text any offers.
If you do not see a “Make an Offer” button, it means we are not considering any offers on that item.
We prefer working through PayPal which allows you to use a credit card or bank transfer. We do not charge extra for any payment fees if you purchase the item at the asking price. You can also send us a personal check (which will need to clear before shipping), certified check, money order, or wire transfer. International clients without access to PayPal should use a bank wire transfer.
If you are picking up an item we do not accept PayPal. You must pay in person with cash, certified or bank check, or wire transfer. If you make a PayPal payment and are picking up the item, it will be returned.
TRADE IN POLICY
We accept trade-ins of equal or lesser value under certain conditions. Simply ask and let us know the exact model, condition, and the accessories that are included (such as the original box, remote, cables, manual, etc.). We will only consider high-end equipment from mainstream manufacturers such as McIntosh, Mark Levinson, Audio Research, Krell, etc. and will typically pass on displays, projectors, receivers, dated surround processors, and mid-fi equipment of any type. We will offer a fair value for your equipment, but keep in mind we are running a business and will need to be able to resell the equipment at a profit after investing a great deal of time and resources in testing, certifying, repairing, cleaning, and packaging the incoming equipment. If you are looking for top dollar we suggest attempting to sell it directly to an end user on your own.
SELL US YOUR GEAR (Working or Broken)
We will also purchase your used or broken gear and arrange pickup if you are in our local market. Just drop us a note for a quote but be sure to include the condition and what is included.
HOW TO VISIT US
We are currently operating from a residence in Ridgewood, NJ. You are welcome to make an appointment if there is a piece of equipment you would like to see in operation before or after purchase. We have a well-equipped, dedicated listening room with tons of equipment of all makes and models. We are not a store, so please don’t make an appointment if you are just curious as to how a speaker or piece of equipment sounds. In essence, no tire kickers please.
If you are in NYC and cannot make it out to Ridgewood, we can arrange pickup in Union Square (14th Street) after the purchase. You can call or text 646.852.2073 with any questions or to schedule an appointment. We can also arrange to install, calibrate, and tune the gear in your listening room if you are local to the area. This is super useful when purchasing large speakers or heavy amplifiers. It is also great for ensuring your new turntable is setup correctly in its final resting place.
