Let’s face it. Power conditioners are nothing much to look at. They can also consume more space than you’d like them to. Torus Power has developed two products that can minimize some of the headaches involved when trying to stow away a power conditioner.

The Torus Power Block PB 5 and PB 10, which were showcased by the company recently at the High End Show in Munich, boast many of the same features of Torus Power’s larger toroidal-based models but in a much smaller footprint.

They are also the most affordable products in the Torus Power lineup, retailing for $799 and $1,299, respectively.

The PB 5 measures 6” x 4.9” x 9.2” and the P10 measures 6” x 4.9” x 16.7”. Both provide true toroidal isolation, NBT noise filtering, and clean power to reduce the noise floor and deliver uncompromised performance and protection to audio/video components.

“Plus, their compact design means that they look neat on a component shelf, on any floor surface, or can be located out of sight when space is at a premium,” says Kevin Main of Torus Power.
