    So, the Monopulse 'A' has arrived and is every bit worth the upgrade from the 'S'. The 'S' is now for sale if interested? What better accolade would there be? "I loved the 'S' so much that I went out and bought its bigger brother; the 'A' - with complete confidence and no demo needed! Monopulse are 'the dogs' I.M.H.O.

    MonoPulse - the only custom-made speakers near this price - and the only loudspeakers using phased-array radar technology - for unique and stunning real-life presence.
    Our ears detect the direction of a sound, using the fractional differences in the arrival of impulses. This gives our sense of depth and sound-stage - and realism. Standard loudspeakers do not accurately time these.
    MonoPulse loudspeakers - with their unique radar technology - have total accuracy - giving a stunning sense of real-life presence.

    Despite the mods deleting my request for info regarding the AG500 power inspired mains re-generator, I decided to take the plunge and purchase one. There are rave reviews about this item on the net and I can certainly confirm that this addition to the setup HAS made a difference in terms of a more accurate 3D image and a wider, more spatial sound stage. This was on trial, but it definitely won't be going back any time soon!! I would urge anyone with even half an interest to try one out today. Price is unbelievable compared to other pure sine wave generators, no brainer, no competition; enough said!

    Power Inspired's AG500 AC ReGenerator is a true online double conversion system providing the highest degrees of power protection, with a stable unwavering high quality power waveform for sensitive and critical loads. Unlike other online units the AG500 is practically inaudible making it suitable for where high quality power is required but without the noise, and unlike other systems the bypass is disabled by default ensuring that raw mains power never reaches your equipment, only clean pure power at all times. This model is fitted with adjustable PWM fan speed controller allowing practically zero noise at minimal loading!

    ViaBlue™ X-25. Upgrading my mains cables to these from the copper only ones that I currently use. The X-25 is silver plated cores.

    "High-End Power Cable With Double Screening, Silverings & 3x 13awg Conductors.

    ViaBlue™ X-25 Silver power cables supply high-end audio and video equipment with clean power. The double screening keeps out interfering frequencies. The X-25 sets out the basis for a completely clean and crystal clear sound. External disturbances have no influence on the signals being transmitted.
    The Absolute Sovereignty in Transmission

    ViaBlue™ X-25 Silver power cables supply high-end audio and video equipment with clean power. The ViaBlue™ X-25 Silver has three conductors with each 2.5 mm2. Each conductor contains 50 silvered strands. The double screening of 100% aluminum-laminated foil and 93% tinned copper braid with 32 strands guards against interference from electromagnetic (EM) and radio frequency (RF) sources. The external diameter of the X-25 power cable is 13 mm. The X-25 Silver is very flexible and elastic. The X-25 has certifications of VDE, HAR, UL, CUL / CE.
    Non-shielded power cords may act as antennas. Thus, external interference fields have effects on the frequencies of the signals. The ViaBlue™ X-25 Silver cord with 100% covering shields blocks these external interference fields. For a properly functioning system, it is necessary to transport electrical power clean and trouble-free to all connected devices and giving the complete system that depends on the incoming power an optimum of interference-free basis. The X-25 sets out the basis for a completely clean and crystal clear sound. External disturbances have no influence on the signals being transmitted. Full transfer of the entire spectrum is given by technical linearity.

    I found the AG-500 regenerator made a significant improvement at our last house (detail and imaging, in particular), but actually made things a bit worse at the current home (loss of dynamics) ... so, I'd always recommend a trial before purchasing. Ideally, I suppose it'd be interesting to monitor the mains with an oscilloscope through the day to see what was actually going on, but one real benefit I found with the regenerator was it giving a constant 230 volts, which stopped a little SET amp I had from cooking on the 252 volts mains at the last house.

    nice to know! My amp also runs a little cooler too. The circuits 'here' as pretty good/well behaved as the rented house is only about 25 years old, so the mains is fairly modern and up to date, hardly any glitches
