KECES IQRP-1500 Isolated Quantum Resonance Power Conditioner

The KECES IQRP-1500 Isolated Quantum Resonance Power Conditioner establishes the new KECES Ultimate Series, which among other things features the KECES Quantum Resonance Technology. This is to provide the best basis for the power supply of a HiFi chain.

KECES IQRP-1500 Isolated Quantum Resonance Power Conditioner, with this the specialist KECES Audio establishes a completely new product line, namely the new KECES Ultimate Series. With this product line, the ambitious goal has been set to create the best possible basis for a clean power supply of a HiFi chain.

The new KECES Ultimate Series has the task to pick up the advantages of previous solutions from the house of KECES Audio through a series of outstanding features, and to raise the quality to an even higher level.

KECES IQRP-1500 Isolated Quantum Resonance Power Conditioner – For the Optimal Power Supply

The company KECES Audio was founded in 2002, and initially made it its business to develop and manufacture high-quality power supply solutions. The Taiwanese company has always been able to boast a very good price-performance ratio, so that it has long since left its initial status as an insider tip behind and is now considered an established manufacturer in this field. Quite apart from that, you can also refer to a number of other solutions, such as phono preamps, D/A converters, headphone amplifiers and amplifiers, but this is just a side note…

As already mentioned, it is up to the new KECES IQRP-1500 Isolated Quantum Resonance Power Conditioner to establish the KECES Ultimate Series.

KECES Ultimate Series

Of course, this is based on years of experience with the solutions of the popular KECES BP Series, the so-called Balanced Isolation Power Conditioner Series, which so far comprises four models. With the new KECES Ultimate Series, the Taipei-based company delivers even more sophisticated technology to meet the declared goal of a clean “foundation” for hi-fi components even better.

KECES IQRP-1500 Isolated Quantum Resonance Power Conditioner – Equipped for almost anything

Once again, the new KECES IQRP-1500 Isolated Quantum Resonance Power Conditioner is supposed to convince with the fact that it is indeed well equipped even for extensive HiFi systems. And for both analog and digital systems, because the company KECES Audio is convinced that each component must be provided with the best possible basis, so that it can actually bring its full potential to bear.

Thus, the new KECES IQRP-1500 Isolated Quantum Resonance Power Conditioner ultimately has two sections, one for primarily digital, and a second for analog systems. At first glance, this is evident from the total of six Schuko sockets on its rear panel, two of which are grouped together in the first zone, and the remaining four in a second zone.

At its heart is a toroidal transformer that has two individually insulated windings, namely 300 VA for the aforementioned first section, and also 1,200 VA for the second section. This, according to the manufacturer, is to provide an optimal filtering effect for each output section.

However, this does not have to be seen quite so strictly separated according to “analog” and “digital”, which is why the manufacturer also speaks of Zone 1 and Zone 2. Thus, for example, a separation of preamp and power amp to the two sections is naturally possible and can bring a noticeable improvement in quality by avoiding any feedback from the audio systems.

The toroidal transformer was manufactured, this one stresses expressly, after the special defaults of the engineers of KECES audio for the Taiwanese enterprise.

Other outstanding features that distinguish the solutions of the new KECES Ultimate Series from those of the KECEC BP Series include transformers encapsulated in metal and gold-plated output sockets. Naturally, the new KECES IQRP-1500 Isolated Quantum Resonance Power Conditioner also has all these features.

Quantum Resonance Technology

A very special feature of the new KECES IQRP-1500 Isolated Quantum Resonance Power Conditioner is already contained in its name. It is equipped with the so-called Quantum Resonance Technology based on a Schumann generator. The declared goal of these measures is to generate a very low resonance frequency, which should improve the well-being in the listening room. Reference is made here to a phenomenon discovered in 1952 by Winfried Otto Schumann and Herbert L. König and studied in detail in the 1960s.

According to the manufacturer, Quantum Resonance Technology thus ensures that all electromechanical components vibrate in unison to significantly improve timing and coherence.

Completely shielded housing

The fact that the new KECES IQRP-1500 Isolated Quantum Resonance Power Conditioner is a really solidly manufactured solution is shown by its weight of an impressive 14 kg with comparatively compact dimensions of 300 x 279 x 133 mm.

Not only the massive toroidal transformer contributes to this weight, but also the very robustly designed housing with a wall thickness of 4 mm, whereby aluminum is used and this is completely shielded. Thus, there should be no negative effects from EMI/ RFI influences on other devices to fear.

It should also be mentioned that the new KECES IQRP-1500 Isolated Quantum Resonance Power Conditioner has under- and over-voltage protection and a resettable fuse.

By the way, the front is not only adorned with the main switch including status LEDs, but also two LED displays of the actually applied voltage per section.

In the proven manner, the new KECES IQRP-1500 Isolated Quantum Resonance Power Conditioner is also kept in discreet black and is enthroned on resonance-absorbing feet.

The new KECES IQRP-1500 Isolated Quantum Resonance Power Conditioner will be available immediately at a suggested retail price of € 1.999,-.

Finally, a first glimpse of what the KECES Ultimate Series still has in store is the KECES IQRP-3600 Ultimate Power Conditioner, although it is not yet foreseeable when this model will be launched on the market.

Getting to the point

The new KECES Ultimate Series is intended to meet even the highest demands and is thus located above the already available KECES BP Series. As the first representative of this new product line, the Taiwanese specialist KECES Audio sends the new KECES IQRP-1500 Isolated Quantum Resonance Power Conditioner into the race. Among other things, it features a redesign of the Isolated Power Transformer for better shielding of each output, gold-plated connectors and Quantum Resonance Technology.
