@shkong78 How did you go about ordering them? Do you have a link?
@shkong78 How exactly does this product work? It appears the current is not flowing through the device, into your system, but rather it is just plugged into the current source (wall outlet) near your system. Or into one on the outlets in your power conditioner? I am simply at a loss to see how this can impact the flow of electricity running to the various system components. Can you enlighten me? The review you attached does not talk about the mechanics of the filter.
There are some blind tests out there on these types of Plug-In Filters out on Youtube.
For what it's worth. I use LessLoss Fire Wire 640X in my digital and analog FE nothing on amplification.
I have also tried the Audiolab DC blockers, and they work also.
The Puron was not tested, The Isotek Isoplug and Nordost QK1 had high marks. iFi was tail end Charlie.
@shkong78 Thanks. I have posed the same question directly to email@example.com They got back to me suggesting we have a phone call but I'm kind of without a phone right now. Hoping they will give me a layman's explanation by email. Glad you are enjoying the benefits. I'm leary of boxes with magic in them that I can't understand.
@shkong78 I like your approach to audio...buy it, plug it in, listen and see if it floats your boat. Screw all the subsequent hand ringing and anguish over the hows and whys. It’s great if the science behind a device is available to you and comprehensible but I never let it dictate the outcome. And don’t get me wrong, I do like to feel like I have a modicum of understanding of the whys and hows but will not let that override perceived performance
BTW, got a quad of the melz 1578s based on the thread you started on 6SN7s. At $500 it was a reach. Think I got ’em from your listed seller. Good in my atma-sphere/avantgarde based system but not better than some of my vintage 6SN7s. But I do not regret the purchase.
I can also try to review various plug in filters myself.
But it will be dependent on system and personal taste.
To me Puron may be the best ever but not all the people may agree.
But it is likely that more than half people will get pleasant surprise after trying Puron in their system.
Since I have Ph. D. in Biophysics, I do not trust science overall. 😉
There are so many phenomena that can not be explained by science theory.
You had tried Melz 1578 but with some dissappintment.
Tube, cable, tweaks are dependent on system and personal taste or mood.
Now I switch back to Amperex 6sn7 for rounder sound.
But that does not mean that it is the best 6sn7 tube.
I have 70 different kind of 6sn7 or variant tubes to try in my amp.
Well after reading this post my curiosity was piqued. I sent the email to verifiaudio via the link provided by @shkong78 . Mark responded (very quickly to multiple emails I sent asking a million questions by the way) and I ordered up! He sent me the tracking this morning and I am quite excited to get my hands on the Puron. The ironic thing is I had just ordered the iFi AC conditioner. Guess I can always return that one...
Not that background noise is a major issue for me as it is only when you put ear to tweets that you can hear a slight hiss, but figure the Puron can only help and not detract in any way. I plan on plugging this in to my Furman Elite 20PFi and hearing what it can do!
Thank you so much to Mark and @shkong78 for your recommendations on the Puron!
I am a bit addicted to these plug in filters and use them for both audiophile and videophile comparisons. I have had the following...
So naturally I will be checking out this new Puron!!
I found all did something positive, but all effect the system balance and do take something away, so its a trade off. It’s not apparent until you remove them what you have lost.
so my Puron just came in this morning. I was skeptical yet very excited.
First, I plugged it in elsewhere the house to warm in up while I’m pre-listening over my selected songs before the fun.
When plug in, there is a very small blue LED lighted up at the very top of the cylinder which I though it was cool. It took about 10 min to start hearing something "difference" and about 15 min later, the magic starting to appear. Now, after 2 hours, it plays beautifully.
This Puron lowers white noise greatly which helps improve soundstage and imaging a lot. It is quieter. Bass is even more defined and tuneful.... giving the impression similar to HFC Q45T liquid enhancer minus authority and organic.
Since I have 5 HFC MC-5s and 2 MC-1s AC filters, how’d this Puron interact with the magnets was crossing my mind too but Mark reassured that i’d be ok.
In fact, I plugged this Puron in my power conditioner Puritan PSM-156 next to series of HFC magnets and it sings flawlessly without problems.
Physically comparing between the 2, Puron and MC-05??? the metal prongs on Puron isn’t as high quality but it grips VERY snugly and tightly. Its casing is lighter but VERY strong and I actually like that more. MC-05s built like a bullet proof but their heavy weighted can sometimes pull itself down and away from the AC outlet especially the MC-1s.
System still playing and I will be back for more critical listening late tonight...
So far, I’m giving this Puron a thump up.
I'm using four HF MC-0.5's plugged into my system's receptacles (and loving them). I contacted Mark to ask if the Puron could be used with the MC's. He said he can't divulge the technology being used, but it is a different concept and has nothing to do with magnetism. So, now I'll likely place an order.
BTW, I researched the Furutech plug-ins and they use some kind of tech that demagnetises the signal, so I was not about to try Furutech with my High Fidelity's.
Let us know where in your system the Puron sounds best.
@lowrider57 order it quickly because I think Mark is at his very last Puron. Next lot will arrive around new year and yes, lol, he won’t expose what technology they are using, but heck, it sure works great in my system.
I’m unable to do A/B test Puron with my HFC magnets because I already have 7 pieces of them in system so it’s not fair to say this.... the effect that this Puron benefits my system is greater than what I got from a single MC-05.
Couldn’t resist its outstanding performance… I now have a 2nd Puron in my system.
This morning, after nearly 20 hours, my system was clearly undeniable became sweeter, nicer PRAT, more magical, 3D- so much more engaging … I just had to get my hand on a 2nd Puron.
A quick phone call and an hour later… met up with Mark and I got myself another one YES . Christmas this year came early.
"Since I have Ph. D. in Biophysics, I do not trust science overall. "
Very refreshing. And wise.
But the problem is not science; science as a commodity is pure.
The problem is scientists. Most scientists are not sufficiently skilled or sufficiently intelligent. They believe their own results without question when their methodology is faulty.
Every day we read findings by scientists that are clearly nonsense. Today, much of the rubbish arises from extrapolating global warming from inadequate data and, worse, then believing it. Worse still, the politicians believe it.
Out of many, many, the one I like best occurred about 15 years ago. It was predicted that within 35 years all the snow and ice on the Himalayas would melt. I wrote a letter to The Times saying that even if the entire Chinese nation went up there 24/7 with blowlamps, it would not happen.
I have been working in the Industry for 54 years
This took place in 2010 and 2011 -
@shkong78 Hello Thomas, I really love them Purons and I never get a chance to thank you directly. ALthough they are still at very low hours, my system is really singing beautifully and effortlessly so THANK YOU
May I ask whats your connection with Puron or if you are affiliated with them at all?
Thank you and happy listening.
Well, I did it guys. I unplugged the Puron off the system and wow, is this how I enjoyed my music before? Almost instantly, the soundstage starting to collapse. Imaging starting to wash out and smeared not a whole lot but most definitely noticeable. Tonality shifts up a bit and becomes slightly brighter and scratchier. Purons seem to work for me up to this point.
