Add Powr - Wizard
 
On a previous thread, I mentioned how amazing the Wizard is. Thanks to Ed’s recommendation, I started with one. I just recently added two more in a few other systems of mine.

I am so smitten with their performance, that I just placed an order for 8 more Wizards. Yes, 8 more to blanket every single system I have in Cape Cod.

More to follow, including listening impressions and photos of them installed.

From Bill’s website:

Sound and Video Like You've Never Heard or Seen Before

ADD-Powr technology is Algorithm Digital Defined electrical energy and power.

Energy is added to electrical signals and systems.

It is unique because it is non-invasive.

1) The products generate low frequency electromagnetic fields to affect harmonic energy change audio signals and systems.

2) The products condition AC line voltage through a low frequency pulsing action to effect an increase of the energy delivered to the power supplies of system components by .8 to 2.5 dB or more.
This corresponds to an increase of voltage peaks from 1 to 5%.

Instead of inserting a potentially current limiting component between the incoming AC and your components, a pulsed field now re-references, or biases, the AC signal.

Something to also consider is the addition of the Sorcerer, I’m gonna add this to by installing a dedicated receptacle within 1.5 feet from the main panel; my hunch is the whole house will feel the affect.

do these replace the Telos QNR devices you have or coexists?

They do different things, and right now they are in separate systems.

I recently decided to try the free trial offered by Add-Powr and audition the Wizard in my system. Ivan made it happen in his usual faster than promised manner.

My ‘power’ system has evolved recently with the replacement of my PS Audio P10 by a Shunyata Denali 6000/s v2 and the connection of my entire system into the Denali with the downstream help of a PS Audio Dectet. The Denali is plugged into its own 20 Amp line.

Enter the Wizard. After hearing the effect of these products is immediate and obvious, I was skeptical and that didn’t change when I powered up my Wizard. Wait, what? How could I not hear anything?

Enter my buddy, fellow AA’er JGlacken who upon a very quick listen, asked what I did - immediately - after I disconnected the Wizard from the wall but blindly to him. Hmmm, maybe there is something there? Let me digress.

For the first week or so with the Wizard, I thought I heard a change in the sonic character of things with it was plugged in but I have learned not to trust myself that much when it comes to comparing sound - even a few seconds apart.

Jeff’s reaction proves there was an effect but now to work on whether or not it was a beneficial effect. I surmised that I couldn’t hear the immediate changes as I was actually unplugging and plugging in the Wizard in the direct center of my soundstage on the front wall. With Jeff sitting in my chair, he heard the effect immediately.

So how to decide if it is a benefit? Upon Ivan’s suggestion, I purchased a wireless wall switch that allows me to turn the Wizard off/on while sitting in my chair.

Soooo...

After some experimentation, I ended up plugging the Wizard into the open outlet of the same 20 amp circuit the Denali is plugged into. (Which was also Ivan’s suggestion) Having it anywhere else on any circuit available in the room diluted the effect too much to be heard.

What both Jeff and I heard was added weight with the Wizard in. In my system it is subtle but obvious. Almost like a subtle Loudness button has been pressed.

Well said Craig!

New here and to ADD-POWR
 
I recieved my Wizard today and really can’t describe its benefits any better than what others have already done here but will confirm everything they’ve experienced as being my experience. I had thought I was already pretty much covered in the AC treatment department with all of my Perfect Path Technologies products ( The Gate in my service panel and mats under components) but was I ever wrong. The Wizard added another level of clarity that makes my system sound more ‘right’ and pleasurable. And yes, it sounds louder and I wasn’t expecting that. A truly transformative device and I look forward to adding a Sorcer x4 in the future. And Bill is a pleasure to deal with.

There is just an IEC Power inlet, no other connections or switches.

I can measure one of mine over the weekend.
