Some in the industry have knighted the 5RQ as the Sonic king of the Equi=Tech R series line up. Featuring a very large, acoustically quiet, specially-designed Equi=Tech balanced power step down transformer, the 5RQ takes 240V and steps it down to split 120v into one 60v leg and one phase inverted 60v leg. The two legs are reassembled without any artifacts through special outlets on the unit. The results range from better dynamics to improved stereo imaging. With two legs at an equal 180 degree difference, the effect created is Common Mode Rejection and cancels the differences between legs such as noise, hums, ground loops and other unwanted distortions that may affect your work. Plug your components in as before using the 5RQ and you’ll enjoy 100% balanced power of cleaner, pure 60Hz sine wave power. Compared to traditional isolation transformers, the Q series transformer ( Q = Quiet) is acoustically quiet making it possible to situate the unit in critical listening areas.
The 5RQ improves power in a much different way than other “conditioners” that merely use filters to reduce noises…and chokes/prevents transients. It’s more of an EQ filter for noise than anything else and affects your sound quality. The EquiTech 2RQ focuses on preventing those noises in the first place, meaning there is nothing to filter or clean up. Our balanced power systems focus on prevention rather than repair.

In simple terms, balanced power is a process that eliminates noise or distortion from incoming electrical current. Before the initial signal hits your devices and equipment for power, balanced power ensures you have the cleanest, most pure power by affecting the current itself. Balanced power is not conditioning power or adding “EQ’ing” to remove noise. Rather, balanced power eliminates that noise before you ever hear or notice it.
