The portal Highfidelity.pl published another, positive, review of the PC-4 EVO+. Two sentences from the summary: “This is the best GigaWatt power conditioner I have ever listened to. It is also one of the best power systems I know.”
“Testing such an advanced product as PC-4 EVO+ is a complex task. You do not have to listen to it much to realise that it is something quite special and that it would be insufficient to just listen, write it down and send it to the graphic designer that will compile it with photos and post in on “High Fidelity” website. I am oversimplifying it, of course. However, there are many tests like that. With the GigaWatt conditioner it was different – just like the other high-end products – much more difficult.
The difficulty I am referring to was not in pointing out the characteristic traits of the product – I managed to do that quite quickly. There is something more about it when it comes to such “dense” products than just a description and evaluation. It is hearing and understanding the “tale” they tell. It is exactly that element of an audio system that a) like every other product interprets the message in a way and b) does that in a way that none other product can.
If we approach the hearing of PC-4 EVO+ as listening to a tale, then the most important element would be the organisation of material. GigaWatt sorts the sound, arranges the transmission and matches separate elements of the recording. Every record, every score that I listened to with it received something like a “manual”. In it was the formula to showcase the space, the source of sound and how to compile everything together. This is exactly what is the most important in this conditioner – the “agreement” of all distinct elements. We play music with it, it does not really matter what kind of music, and everything just “plays” in it, everything has its’ inner “grounding” and meaning.
This is the best GigaWatt power conditioner I have ever listened to. It is also one of the best power systems I know. It brings peace, calmness and cleanliness to the audio system, as well as loads and opens the sound up; and it shows the true dynamicity of a recording. The sound-attack is warmer, thus it does not have a stronger punch “here and now” – it gives a strong, large and complete performance. It is a excellently designed, fantastically crafted and superbly sounding product, that should have its place among the best high-end systems.”
