EDIT: I am open to serious offers, so feel free to contact me if interested. Asking price has been reduced. I would also be willing to make a package deal with the Sound Application Reference Line Stage and the Elrod EPS-3 Sig. pc that I have listed for sale elsewhere.
For Sale (OBO): an excellent condition Sound Application 'Reference Line Stage' power conditioner/surge protector.
These are one of the more highly regarded audiophile grade power conditioners on the market, and do not come up for sale very often. Sound Application power conditioners have won numerous awards, and have been used in one of Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs' mastering suites and in the Reference Listening Suite at CBS Studios.
It comes in its original box and packing, and with the original audiophile grade electrical outlet that was supplied with it by Sound Applications. It includes 6-analog, and 6-digital outlets, specifically designed for their particular purpose.
The build quality and performance of these units is nothing short of incredible. All Sound Application products are hand built, with no printed circuit boards or automated soldering. All terminations are done either by true cold welding techniques, which means using 200 foot pounds of torque in a four-ton arbor press, or when cold welding is inappropriate, soldering is done in an Argon gas environment to eliminate the surface oxides of the copper and the solder, which creates the ultimate electrical joint.
The Reference Line Stage is a twenty-eight stage line conditioner which uses the finest of audio components, which are all custom manufactured for Sound Application. This includes the following: an ultra high speed magnetic circuit breaker (SA has been using this type since 1992); hand tensioned, hand soldered, exotic film and foil capacitors specifically designed for the application; and high frequency AC RF filter caps where these custom capacitors are of the highest quality available today. The outlets are special order Hubbell that are 300% more conductive than standard brass. The buss bars for the circuit module are constructed of mirror polished OFE type 101 copper. The solder used to both manufacture the capacitors and to assemble the capacitive filter array is the same proprietary SA solder. Additionally, critical resistors are rated at .01% with an effective TCR of 2ppm and internal wiring is cold welded inductionless high speed data transfer wire.
These units are non-current limiting, can pretty much handle whatever you can plug into them, and are only limited by the power supply at your wall outlet. They come with a standard 20amp power cord connector.
FYI: I have an Elrod EPS-3 Signature power cord listed 'for sale' elsewhere that I used with this unit, and which has always been highly recommended for use in conjunction with them.
The Sound Application 'Reference Line Stage' power conditioner should be considered a component within your system, as it will make as much of an improvement to your sound/video system, as most any component you could add, and it is built to last a lifetime.
I have listed this unit as an 8 out of 10 appearance-wise, though I think that is being a bit harsh. FYI: the 'top of the unit' photo appears to show a slight smudge mark that the flash apparently brought out, but it is not a permanent mark, and the top is in excellent condition. There are only one or two very, very light marks on the the sides, which you would only notice at very close range. Its operating condition is definitely a 10 out of 10.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions regarding this unit, or other items, that I currently have listed for sale elsewhere.
