Iím not good at this but I already had a dedicated 20 amp circuit and a ps audio outlet feeding a Shunyata power bar.
When I changed this out for the torus there was an immediate improvement in soundstage and depth. Everything about the sound of my system seemed clearer. There is a good review about the torus in Tone Audio and I was first introduced to it at a Tone audio reviewers place in Portland. I believe it was their product of the year a few years ago. Iím on vacation right now but Iím happy to experiment a little with it when I return and give you a better description. Hope this helps.

Thanks. Right now based on information that's been available to me I'm converging on getting a PS Audio P20 with a couple Shunyata Sigma NR (amp and preamp) and a couple Alpha EF PCs (speakers). The WW PCs I have will be applied to my source components, unless my ears tell me I should do otherwise. I've never read much on Torus conditioners before. I'm about a month out in purchasing so no immediate rush. Thank you.

Sorry for the delay in responding. Summers tend to be my outdoor times with my kids and I don't spend as much time online.

The Rogue RP-7 sounds more organic with a bit more tonal body than the Classe, which had a hint of dryness. Pianos especially sound more natural to me with the RP-7. They have similar levels of detail. I'd say I definitely prefer the RP-7's sound.
