10-Outlet, 20-Amp Conditioner Provides True Isolation
Noisy AC power delivery adversely affects every aspect of your hi-fi or home theater system. The products of 'dirty' power include diminished resolution and dimensionality in audio playback along with lifeless colors and poor contrast in a video display.
Bryston's six-outlet BIT IS 20 Isolation Transformer power conditioner is the solution to common AC power line problems. The BIT IS 20 has been designed as a complete power isolation unit, which is ideal for protecting your equipment while smoothing out the current running through your home theater and home audio system.
Bryston IS Series BIT Products
Like all Bryston BIT products, the IS series models provide true isolation from the external power grid, noise filtration using toroidal isolation transformers featuring proprietary NBT technology, and high levels of instantaneous (peak) current on demand.
Unlike the other Bryston BIT models, the IS series models do not include series mode surge protection. Despite the lower price compared to the other BIT models, there is no compromise in the IS series. It performs like all Bryston BIT conditioners, offering sparkling performance with noticeable increases in dynamic range, imaging, bass response, and depth in audio, as well as increased definition in video.
Providing True Isolation
Most power conditioners are simple filters and do not provide isolation between the outside power grid and the inside power source. The BIT IS 20 provides true isolation, along with low source impedance, and large enough instantaneous current for today's most sophisticated and powerful audio amplifiers. Protect your system against diminished resolution and dimensionality in audio playback and video display.
A massive toroidal isolation transformer provides complete isolation and ensures sufficient reserve power capabilities to source high current requirements for high power systems.
Very Low Source Impedance and High Current
Bryston units present very low impedance to any connected device. A low impedance power source allows a power amp to instantaneously deliver high amounts of power. A typical 200 watt audio power amplifier demands 10 amps RMS current from a 120 volt line but may demand up to 50 amp instantaneous peaks. The standard residential wall receptacle can't supply the 50 amp peaks.
Total Isolation and Low Noise
Bryston power products provide isolation through their specially designed toroidal transformer, which creates a protected zone between the outside power grid and the connected devices. Such isolation creates a barrier to reject external noise sources such as motors, lights, and dimmers. Bryston power products provide noise filtering at a range from approximately 2,000 Hz to over 1 MHz. Other regular transformer based products do not start operating until nearly 10,000 Hz.
Bryston products utilize Plitron 'LONO' (Low Noise) transformer design technology that eliminates audible noise in the power transformer, regardless of line conditions, DC offset, and over-voltage. Bryston products perform at the NC10 level measured on the standard NC (Noise Criteria), which makes them suitable for use in very quiet environments such as professional recording and broadcast studios, as well as the most demanding consumer audio-video installations and systems.
Bryston products utilize Plitron NBT (Narrow Bandwidth Technology) to attenuate differential and common-mode noise without external circuits or components, and starting at a lower frequency (typically 2 kHz). Hear it for yourself! The Bryston result is startling.
