Isotek's Mosaic Genesis

Two components in one, Isotek's Mosaic Genesis ($11,995) is, first of all, a power regenerator. Converting power to DC, and claimed to produce a perfectly clean, time-correct sinewave without sending noise back into the wall, it sends power to outlets isolated via a bus bar.

"The name Genesis signifies that it completely severs from the AC in the wall," distributor Kevin Wolff of Vana, Ltd. told Stereophile.

Strictly for source components, it includes three outlets for CD, phono, preamps, etc. The unit also contains dedicated outlets for amplifiers. Dropping the operating impedance of those devices, it reportedly improves bass extension, power, and dynamics.

Kevin also showed the red Isotek EVO3 Optimum power cable ($995/2m). Composed of silver-plated Ohno Continuous Cast (OCC) copper strands formed in 3mm2 conductors set in a parallel construction with a slight rotational twist, and encased in Teflon (FEP), the power cable is said to operate as though it were of solid-core construction. It becomes available at the end of January.
