We are delighted to share the great news with our customers and friends. The audio web portal: HiFi Knights has posted a great review of our GigaWatt PC-3SE EVO+ conditioner. This time, the device was honoured with the Victor Award. Evo + is an excellent new range of products which are now feeling our Gigawatt portfolio and the write up explains perfectly the genre of them as well as a philosophy staying behind the design. Enjoy reading of the whole review below, or scroll down for the highlights we are quoting and publish together with lovely pictures.
…” To translate the bit above into proper audio lingo, GigaWatt PC-3 SE EVO+ did everything one might expect from such an item. It rapidly and audibly removed grain from musical canvas to have all instruments and voices more visible and separated better in the process. This action in particular was its core task and several predictable upshots followed. Upstairs harshness, if there was any to begin with, was also smoothened out and less glossy yet not dimmed. At first music seemed slightly darker, however this was something I had to accommodate to. Just as quality USB cables, reclockers and the lot, power components early on might be viewed as tonal balance shifters with their guns aimed at compression and claptrap oftentimes falsely taken as extra informational content. The very first impression is almost always the same once these two culprits are removed; our ears tell us that we hear less, but what happens in reality is the exact opposite.“….
…” Quality repertoire intake via high caliber hardware doesn’t have to be loud in order to hear everything. On the contrary, low level listening can provide tiniest bits of musical information. Here quality power kicks in, in this context it’s essential and that’s what the PC-3 SE EVO+ brought to the table, it extracted all musical content and showcased it in humane, palpable fashion. It didn’t soften the effect but finely stripped it from contamination and garishness, whereas dimming mentioned above morphed into instrumentally heftier and more organic act, utmost visible during quiet auditions. That’s where the true refinement of this review’s GigaWatt was found. It was pinpoint accurate yet subtle and finely moisturized at the same time; instead of shoving details in my face all at once, every image it painted pleasantly hydrated, articulate, nicely opened up and did all this without a hint of struggle. The PC-3 SE EVO+ simply made the music to flow better and many times did so potently enough to convince me that with certain top shelf companions it was mandatory “…
“… Upper four figures on GigaWatt PC-3 SE EVO+’s ask easily turn it into a costly luxurious item and quite possibly also an overkill in most cases. My sincere common sense advice is to start from lower tiered more affordable products, see what happens and move from there if financials allow it and desire to push further is still on. However, heavyweight enthusiasts far beyond entry level goods and with key components already well sorted have different needs. Many simply want to squeeze every bit of performance out of setups they already have, which leaves them with various tweaks such as today’s exceptionally potent one. If you’re after top tier hardware of the sort, please know that GigaWatt PC-3 SE EVO+ is now filed in my privy book as the best I’ve heard to date and the one to beat, simply put victorious. ” Till next time!
” … The last thing on the to-do list was to isolate the LC-3 EVO power cord. It’s priced quite similarly to my reference LessLoss C-MARC, hence it made sense to compare the two. Both products made music to flow freely and naturally due to its edges softened up a bit, canvas for instruments darker, virtual sound sources separated better, grain nicely removed and extraction of all nuances easier in the process. The two power cords clearly had several core things in common just as quality power cords should. However, the PC-3 EVO also sounded audibly differently in comparison to my reference leash. The Lithuanian was slimmer and snappier, the GigaWatt sported boosted downstairs and packed more slam. The former displayed all events very clearly and precisely chiselled, the latter made them a bit thicker and rounder. The C-MARC was airier and finer up top, the LC-3 EVO denser and shorter in there. Again my daily driver proved me that that’s the one to go if one’s after the ultimate truth, regardless of how brutal it might be. Simply put, it did more by doing less. Still, with my feisty and informative DAC and the recently arrived Accuphase P-4500 also voiced truthfully and informatively, the GigaWatt sounded truly well. Subjectively speaking, it had my vote with these machines. I also got the impression that this cable efficiently boosted the core flavour of the PC-3 SE EVO+. The C-MARC with this power conditioner netted slimmer and less blossomed result. It was perfectly fine and very articulate as per usual, though the Polish leash went the extra mile on moisture count.“
