I am currently using an Isotek Sigmas with an Optimum cable. McIntosh amp and preamp are plugged to the HighCurrent Outlets; the other 4 outlets are for Streamer, TT, TV and DVD.



Recently my dealer had Isotek in house and products like Titan, Aquarius, Sigmas and sine wave Generator Genesis One for audition. Audition was done with Optimum cables. Some different cables like the new Ascension were there too.



The new Ascension makes the whole sound a little more detailed and crisp but the price with 3 k€ is really hefty.

I was impressed by the improvements when Genesis One was involved and plugged to the CD source - everything sounded clearer, the bass pinchier.
Will add the Titan One and plug it into the HighCurrent Outlet of Sigmas to power the streamer and/or the preamp.

I recently noticed my Evo Sigma 3 distortion rate was 8.80% so I called my dealer who picked it up for service and dropped off the Genesis Mosiac and wow what a difference, just like all the above posters cleaner, bigger, better pitch and deeper base, soundstage.

Only problem is they want $7000.00 for it and Im trying to figure out how I can swing it.

I would like to try the PS 10 for comparison before deciding if anyone has compared the 2 I would be most interested in their feedback.

Sorry for the very late reply. I was out of forum for some time.

Currently all the components of my audiosystem are hooked up to Aquarius. Power amps are on high-current outlets. I even tried to connect them to low-current outlets and the result was not bad at all. The overall sound became even more transparent and less "noisy" (background noise was reduced further). The only problem was that the size of soundstage reduced and the level of emotional engagement decreased. So I brought them back to huigh-current zone.

I purchased a couple of Isoplugs (EVO3). Will share my thoughts on them as soon as they get a chance to participate in my audiosystem's life.
Neoplug is an old model, it's gone out of production.

The main question is will your power amp(s) be happy if you provide them with regenerated power. If yes, then go for PS Audio and add Isotek Titan One infront of it (if you need).
If not, then Genesis is probably the right way to go.
Genesis provides filtered power for power amps and regenerated power for all other equipment.
I wouldn't chose Genesis as all the components of my system win when they receive simultaneously regenerated and filtered power. So I would definitely chose PS Audio and Isotek Titan One. I would hook up PS Audio to Titan. That would provide my system with extremely clean power.

I too use my IsoTek Sigmas with an Optimum EVO3 cable. Big difference between the Optimum EVO3 and the Elite EVO3...
