Solid performer and a bargain
The IsoTek EVO3 Polaris Mains Power Block is an excellent mains conditioner considering it is only IsoTek's entry-level conditioner. This very reasonably priced conditioner will filter out the usual culprits that dirty power supplies, but I have found it to produce slightly better results than a rivals power conditioner priced nearly twice as much. When replacing the aforementioned conditioner with the EVO3 Polaris I noticed slight improvements on sound quality, but the improvement was very noticeable and hugely impressive when compared to my system powered without using any conditioner. I used this conditioner to supply a Mac Mini, DAC, power amp and subwoofer. Immediately I observed a tighter all-round audio performance, with more detail and a deeper, solid and rhythmic base. And this is before I used MCRU's Excelium DC Blocking Mains Lead David sold me to supply it, which just to let you know made the same audio improvements jump many levels higher and seems to be a excellent partner for the EVO3 Polaris. But if your budget won't stretch that far this conditioner still is an excellent performer and a real bargain.
Isotek Evo3 Polaris
Having now split up my Home entertainment into separate parts, I was looking at this block purely to power the AV section only?
Even on first use the quality is comparable to that when used with an Aquarius conditioner that also included my Audio set up, good clean picture, crisp detail especially on HD broadcast but still more than acceptable on SD and DVD/Blu-ray playback!!
Considering the fact that this is only the "base" model of the Evo3 range this is a more than capable performer in it's own right, build quality is without question tho not much by way of filtering/conditioning which is a bit of a shame in relation to it's price, and, to its bigger brother's spec, but still a very much recommended purchase for anyone not looking to spend the high amounts on mains conditioners!!
Difficult to tell just how good the audio is against my Aquarius as TV sound is not particularly good at the best of times but I certainly haven't noticed anything major going wrong in this department.
Only had this about two weeks now so it is settling in nicely and I don't have any complaints about it's performance, it does exactly what I'd hoped it would, no apparent drop in performance from what I'm used to, so on that score I'm very happy with this purchase with the only downside for me being the price, it's a little too high for what you get?
I bought this for a 2nd system that was using a Supra MD06/SP mains filter before the Isotek. I thought the Supra was doing an ok job......Until I installed the Isotek EVO 3 Polaris that is. The jump in quality was quite significant, to say the least. I already own an Isotek Sigmas in my main system so I knew I would be getting an improvement, but as I sais I didn't expect just how much better the Evo 3 would be over the Supra. I have a Naim Nait 5i mk2 in the 2nd system and according to most people the Naim gear only improves with Naims own gear.......well believe me this is not the case. I'm using Furutech Alpha 3 cable from the Isotek Evo 3 and the gains are huge......soundstage, dynamics, detail, all aspects of listening pleasure have taken a huge leap forward. I suppose this is a double review as the Furutech Alpha 3 really needs to be heard to hear what a massive difference it makes to the sound, but when combined with the EVO3......sublime. You can buy either with confidence as the sound per £ is huge.
