"Enjoy the Music"
Now I'd like to discuss the best thing that's happened to
my system in months, the PurePower line of AC regenerators. I've been
running all of my equipment through three of their PP
2000 units for several years now and
have been more than content with the sound of my system. They do an
excellent job of cleaning up the AC grunge, giving the best sound yet
out of my system, even on nights when the electricity is atrocious.
So about two weeks ago, Richard Janzen and his lovely
wife Donelda came over with three of their units, a PurePower+ 3000 and
two PurePower+ 1500 Regenerators...
All in all, there was a significant enough improvement
over the older units to require me to once more dig into my retirement
fund for immediate payment for them.
full review at:
After hooking up the PP3000+ to my audio & video system,
I noticed the following changes in sound.
When playing any audio source (CD, Vinyl, DAT, FM tuner)
the music seems to come from a much quieter background. On really good
recordings, this can be rather startling when music has silence between
notes, then starts again from a “blacker” background. The bass seems
much more organic, acoustic standup bass sounds more “woody”. Electric
bass has more punch. Although not consistent enough to be sure, the
high-end (treble) seems a little smoother on some recordings, but not
all. The midrange seems to have more space around vocals & instruments,
with more “texture”. When using my analog tuner, once a station has
been “tuned”, the center channel tuning meter doesn’t move! When
bypassing the regenerator, the tuning meter wobbles around, and
sometimes requires “re-tuning” to center the meter. The sound from my
Stereo is now consistent, regardless of when I listen. Without the
regenerator, my stereo sounds best after midnight, when there is less
use of electric by commercial & residential users. It’s like having your
very own dedicated electric company for your system!
Now on to video. Wow! It’s like we got a new TV. The
color is way more vibrant, like turning up the color control. This
is evident the second you turn on the TV, the colors “pop” without being
over saturated. I have Verizon FIOS, and
thought my TV was performing at its best. Not so! The PP3000+ makes such
a big improvement, like going from
regular TV to High-Definition TV. The picture is that much clearer. I
can never go back to not having this brilliant
piece of engineering. Pure Power LLC is definitely on top of their game
with these new “Plus” units.
Thank-you from a happy customer! I appreciate everything
you did for me. I love this thing!
Romy "The Cat",
"Sound. It is no brainer: the new unit does sound notably
better then old one.
It is across the board: bass, dynamics, HF noise, in any
characteristic. ....It was very interesting to switch the
new unit to operate
from wall to battery (with no bypass mode). The sound is
virtually the same...
To summarized everything. Pure Power after the famous
Chinese accident had to come up with own version made in Canada. They did. If the
PP+ would be
identical to older Chinese-made units then Pure Power
world have logical
problems. Luckily for Pure Power, ..., the new PP+ units
are sonically more
advanced than the older PurePower units. It shall give to
new PP+ some
momentum. I think the main attention for Pure Power shall

It's such a load off my mind to be able to play my stereo
without worrying about the horrible fluctuating
power coming out of the wall in my apartment.
Thank you very much for such a great product and
Yes the 1500 is performing as promised, actually with a better than
expected set of changes in the sound. It is not only
consistent across the
day, but much improved all the time. Clearly it can provide power even
the wall cannot match at the best of times.

thank you very much again and again for the product

I wanted to give myself a few
days of listening to make sure I wasn't
hallucinating before reporting my impressions of the +3000. Basically,
I'm a complete convert. I won't bore you with adjectives, except that
almost everything is better, most importantly the musical listening
Really, there's no going back - I'm sold.
New York, NY
So, I connected two of my big Goldmund amps to the PP3000
today. I always feel like I get incredible sound late at night when the
200 pc's in this building are turned off. Well to my surprise the sound
with the two amps going into the PP3000 along with a bunch of my front
end stuff is giving me the same sound in the day as it does at night.
Just like you said it would!
Bob Visintainer, Rhapsody Music and Cinema
... some initial feedback on your
PurePower+ 2000 device:
much whiter whites, much more deeper blues, blacks and reds on my Kuro
Sonically, my system never sounded better; incredibly clear clean
"punchy" lows via the sub-woofer; highs and mid range very very "crisp".
Hearing things I've never heard before when I watch Blu-Ray DVD's.
Well done!! on your newest PROD release of the PurePower+ 2000 device.
"The experience of this thing – your 2000 plus – is mind blowing. It’s a gigantic,
huge and massive improvement in ways that I couldn’t even have imagined.
A whole different stereo system, a whole different sound stage, whole different
bits of information, bits of information that I hadn’t heard before, bass
information that is massive by comparison. So it’s huge."

lot of "grunge" is gone. I hear things I have never heard before. There
is a "sweetness" that wasn't there before. Dynamics are better. Bass is
both fuller, and more tuneful or "fast". Tonality is wonderfully pure.
Most importantly, I find myself wanting to listen more; and not getting
tired. This is just what I had hoped for. And I have a happy feeling
that is similar to what I used to experience in my room, before the
gremlins in our electronic world gradually took over. It's what I
remember music used to be like at home! It has been a very long time,
and I didn't realize how long.
So ... thank you."
"Received the PurePower 1050 this
morning and played SACDs and then LPs the rest of the day.
All I can say is
"WOW" the 1050 is the best improvement in my 35 years of High End audio
The "Enjoy The
Music" reviewer was right!
3.6 speakers with the Pass Labs XA30.5 amp is producing "State of Art"
3D, pure, sound from the bass to extreme high frequencies. I would have
never expected that.
Could not be more
pleased! Well worth the wait."

bought a PurePower 2000 and couldn't be happier. Great service to
the customer. Their "buzz cancellation trim pot" was the
piece d' resistance. It removed the power supply
transformer buzz in my Krell S 1500 5 channel amp just like magic.
Jack Gammer, Canadian Audiophile
how did the system sound? All I can say is WOW!!!
On two channel SACDs and computerized digitized
reproductions of studio analog tapes from the 50's and 60's, the
sound was unbelievable, the best my system has sounded in it's 28
years of existence. And the sound has not varied by day, time of
day, or programming. In other words, the units have cleaned up the
electricity to the point where its quality never varies.
I’ll be selling off all of my other AC filters, and I suggest
you do the same and purchase one or more of these units before
they are inundated with buyers as their supplies of the units are

"I am a bit hard to
impress any more but the PurePower has managed to bump the
performance up a notch. I am now able to run my whole system from
one power conditioner and actually love the results.
I kicked it up a notch this
evening to put the unit through its paces and see if it it holds
up under some "pressure". Hugh Masekela "Hope"
CD was chosen for its exemplary clean and wide dynamic range.
Cranking up the sound to beyond the "usual", the drums
exhibited stupendous slam, crispness and articulation. The Lamm
amps hold up to the punishing 1.8 ohm dip at 90Hz that Wilson
Sasha presents easily and I'd say this PurePower unit will hold up
to anything I can throw at it with its 2000VA/1400w power rating
and the demand from the amps. I am happy. Transients are
crisp and well controlled but the input side of AC does dip even
further than 115v The output side is still rock steady at
120V. Good enough for me."

kind of instant emotional delivery was when I took the Rock n Roller
Coaster ride at Disney Paris.
What the PurePower 2000i does for me is
make sure that my rig performs like during the golden hours, but then
all of the time and then some.
IMHO the PurePower 2000i offers
exceptional value for money...just one word of caution though, try not
to be too enthusiastic in front of your dealer before you have
negotiated a deal."

Audiophiles are a funny
group. Compulsive, often
manic depressive and deeply committed to their audio systems. Ask us to describe the latest improvements and we become Oscar
Wilde dipping into our deep hat of colorful descriptive
adjectives. What happened
last night left me drawing a complete blank as I gasped for words
to convey my reaction to a product I am evaluating for my company.
Pure Power AC
Regenerator Model 2000 is the product. Damian Janzen is the co-owner and if he doesn't
walk around with a "Viagra-like grin" on his face all the
time, then he is simply too modest. In case I am boring you, let me cut to the chase. With a completely straight face, I can stake my professional
reputation on this statement: This
is the most astounding single product I have ever listened to in 35
years of this hobby. Maybe
because its inexpensive ... maybe because I don't see people camped
out on street corners claiming their lives have been changed by this
thing... or just maybe because I have not read about it or heard about
it nearly enough in the mainstream press.
Whatever the reason, I
don't understand how it isn't hailed as the cure for cancer
or the world economy. Oh yes, it is that good. This is from their site:
PurePower™ APS (Audio Power Supply) provides truly regenerated pure
power regardless of what problems exist in your utility supply. This is
accomplished through our double conversion technology.
We convert the incoming power to produce a clean DC current, then
recreate a 60 Hz, 120 volt AC wave-form from the DC. No spikes, sags, surges or other power disturbances can be
passed through from input to output.”
I found out about it
from a very erudite audio buddy of mine who has Boulder amps and
Wilson Maxx 2 speakers. He
maintained I was "out of touch " by not carrying this
line. Out of touch...
how dare you sir! I
read everything printed in page and web text, I am the obsessive compulsive one remember?
Sonics: Detail you never knew existed on recordings. Microscopic detail
in fact. Weight of cymbals, density of plucked string, depth of
percussion and voices... oh my .... voices that defy you to say this is
an electrical reproduction event.
Tone: Nothing can prepare you for the kaleidoscope of tonal purity this
product delivers. Period, end of discussion.
The acceleration from midnight to attack is startling. You will be digging
out every percussion disc you own and rushing to the computer to
order everything you can get with explosive orchestral passages.
This is difficult to describe but it all sounds so natural and
effortless. Dynamic swings take you by surprise but never at the
expense of ease and continuous flow.
You will be wishing you got a few of these before Damian gets wise
and triples the price.

Pure Power 2000 significantly enhanced
the sonics over and above what my previous high end AC conditioner
provided: greater dynamics with more punch and liveliness, cleaner and
faster transients, better defined and tighter bass, more open highs
yielding greater delicacy, increased resolution of complex orchestral
passages, cleaner and purer harmonic texture, easier to perceive nuances
and longer decays, more natural and relaxed presentation, and enhanced
soundstage elements: depth, focus, air, separation of instruments, and

Immediately apparent now is the startling
clarity offered by the music playing system, like a window glass that
has just been wiped clean. Noise floor is very certainly brought down by
a mile. I found myself now admiring the focus of each and every
instrument within the deep, wide sound stage!
The vocals are now very palpable and believable. In fact so good, with
recordings that have it, you can certainly hear a face in the room too!
I really liked the Pure Power APS 2000 powering my system, it's probably
one of the best power line solutions money can buy today.
Brent Tuthill, North Carolina
"It HAS TO BE one of the finest
audio products there is!
Had an audiophile friend over yesterday for an audition. He had heard my system several times 'before' the 1050. Had a good basis for comparison. Auditioning session ran 3 hours.
He was absolutely blown away by the improvements he heard .. and this guy has heard 'his' more times than he can remember .. but NEVER LIKE THIS!
I, personally, am blown away every time I now watch a DVD! Has taken it to a whole new level.
Let me tell you .. I didn't know my equipment was 'this' good .. until now! I could go on and on .. but I won't. I know you've heard it all before.

Romy "The Cat",
"I appreciate audio devices that
instead of demonstrating their own qualities, force you to think about
sound. The new PurePower 2000 is turning to be such a device. I have so
many ideas and so many thoughts with the sound the 2000 produces that I
truly surprised myself. Today, spending many hours with my new
regenerator and listening to music, I could not hold myself from
laughing as many times I caught myself acknowledging that this or that
aspect of the sound was exactly how I always insisted it should be. It
was like being an orphan and suddenly discovering one's own parents
Somehow the PP2000 surgically removes all negative manifestations that
are typically associated with bad electricity but keeps everything else
After spending those 4 days with the PurePower 2000, I suggest that they
adopt my proposal for a new slogan: "We do not 'f ***-up' your
Sound." As far as my familiarity with power treatment devices is
concerned, I know of no other power company or product that might be
entitled to use this slogan.
It looks like the PurePower 2000 resolves the problem with electricity
once and for good..."

I'm a real advocate of PurePower. I'm in the UK and suffer
from "dirty mains" - lots of voltage fluctuation and
cause the torroidial transformers on my valve (tube) amp to hum
I did a lot of research into various techniques to "clean
mains, and decided to go for regeneration. Frankly, nothing else
seemed to make sense to me - I'm not an electrical engineer, but
the thought of trying to resolve mains quality and interference
problems using "smoothing" techniques just didn't add up !
So I spent my UK£ to buy the 1050 and the difference is simply
astounding. The overall system quality is significantly improved
- the noise floor seems much lower and subjectively the sound
is more dynamic or "agile".
I'm a vinyl junkie with a top-end system (VAC Phi-Beta amp,
Sonus Faber Amati speakers, Oracle 1.1 Ultra-Wide cables,
Roksan TMS2 T/T with SME V arm, Clearaudio Insider Ref
Cartridge and Clearaudio phone stage) and I was not expecting
to notice such a big difference running the system on the APS,
but my ears tell me otherwise !

“I wouldn’t build
a high-end home theater system without a PurePower device.
Battery back up is just a start. Completely clean,
regenerated power is yet another. If top performance and 100%
reliability are at the top of your list of system goals – I would make
the investment in Pure Power.”

level of improvement this added to my already exceptional system
was akin to a total system upgrade; it did more than I could have
imagined a power product could do. Add in all the protection,
ability to run on battery power and the fact that I can safely use
my system during our frequent Florida lightning storms without
worry, and I think it’s a steal. I am keeping this in my system
and recommend you get one, too.

this level of performance improvement, there is no way I can live
without Pure Power in my system."
"Clearly the Audiophile APS
PurePower 1050 performed better than the Richard Gray 400s on my video
projector ... I have come to the conclusion that the PurePower 1050 is
the ultimate piece of electronics for video use. Combined with the vast
improvements in color and contrast, something that many display devices
lack in this day of fixed pixel digital displays, it provides better
backup for safeguarding your display by allowing it to properly cool off
in the event of a power outage."

video improvements eclipse the impressive feats I remember vividly while
evaluating the Exact Power EP15A."

"With the Audiophile APS in use, the
various rhythms and textures that he used were reproduced with much more
clarity. The different types of cymbals used could be heard much more
easily. The increase in clarity was not accompanied by any hardness or
glare, and that's a good thing. Tonally, music overall from top to
bottom seemed richer, more full sounding as compared to the sound using
the PS-Audio P-300."
"I am not aware of any other power
line regenerator that has all of the capabilities of the APS 1050.
Considering price, performance, technology and style, the Audiophile APS
PurePower 1050 Power Conditioner receives my highest recommendation."

"I live in central Fla - we get daily lightening
storms for 6 months of the year
which will test the toughest of PLCs. One of the reasons I'm purchasing
a 1050 is because of what sounds like impenetrable surge protection."
"A few years ago, I
lost about $8000 USD worth of amps (which I thought were well protected thru a Tice
Powerblock 3C) and last year I lost a board in my prepro thru a BMI Shark PLC. The
batteries (conversion to DC) seem
an integral part of the design and the surge protection so I just wanted to ensure that the batteries were
robust and that I'd have some way to know when to replace them. Replacing $400
worth of batteries is trivial
compared to damaged equipment."

product and unique in the marketplace - thanks."

can draw as much as 1000 watts when in operation… The APS handled the
