Here we got the latest review from the hifidelity.pl covering subject of the Verictum products. This is the specially important one as it shows the Magic of the System and what is it capable to deliver as such, when used together. Ladies and Gentlemen please enjoy reading to the issue of 158. Here is when the magic happens!
When half year back we published proudly at that point 1st worldwide available review of COGITARI power bar here in our musing section it was already 4th in row write up covering a deep inside view in to the subject of unusual VERICTUM products. One year earlier magazine took close look and covered the DEMIURG power cord, one of the most revolutionary power product the world experienced at that time. Which today still stays on the top, just to mention. Three months earlier the X BLOCK was a main subject of the issue. And another three months ahead it was an X BULK. The first product they experienced , but it was such a challenge that it convinced Mr. Pacula to explore that matter further in mission to understand and reveal to the audience WHAT’S THE HELL IS GOING ON THERE ! And that’s why it was only a matter of time to see all the system together to finally valuate all that GOOD what comes from using in the system whole lot!
As always , we quote the summary , leaving you the pleasure of reading the whole review:
” It is good that you’ve mentioned it, because after all we’ve met to see how the full system works, not its individual components. I will not be a surprise if I say that only the whole system has introduced a qualitative leap – the Verictum power system consisting of the Demiurg power cables and the Cogitari power strip, and the passive X Bulk and X Block filters delivered a better sound than my reference system. Each component offers a good performance, brings some change to the system, but it’s become obvious only now that each of them is a part of a bigger project.
All elements of this puzzle are tested by the manufacturer and tuned so that together they can offer more than they can individually. And it doesn’t work this way only in our system, but in all of them. Classical tests in audio magazines are therefore severely compromised and relative – they present only a small part of this assumption, present especially at the highest quality levels, that excludes any shortcuts and compromises. Sometimes it will work out and show something more, but most often after reading such test we actually know less than before reading it. Taking a component out of context usually causes it to perform worse.
If I were a customer, then I should ask for a complete system and if I can not afford it, remove item after item to establish which one introduces the biggest change, am I right?
Exactly so, you should check which system components are the most effective in your system and focus on them. But knowing in which direction it takes you, where you could get. Unfortunately, customers are not open-minded, they divide their audio needs between particular components and try combine the best of each king they can afford, forgetting that it doesn’t work like that, because even best individual components don’t have to match to each other. Such approach may have been shaped over years by tests in which we look at one element of the system while pretending that there is nothing else around it. And you should remember that “stars” won’t deliver any sound at all. “
