Environmental Potentials North America (EPNA) is pleased to award an EP-2450, EP-2050, and EP-2750 to four lucky Enjoy the Music.com mailing list members. The EP-2450 Home Theater Power Supply is a robust industrial design that includes three patented circuits by a leading power quality R&D organization. The unit will protect home entertainment assets from surge events while tracking, filtering, absorbing, and dissipating high frequency resonance from the system with no shunt to ground. The EP-2050 Whole House PQ Filter and Surge Absorber are residential models of the industrial EP-2000 patented waveform correction absorber. EPNA claims this is the most aggressive power quality filtration technology available and will remove all system anomalies at 3kHz or greater, without residual byproduct or shunt back into the system. EP-2750 ground blocks removes high frequency resonance in the grounding system, add filtering to prevent ground loops and reduces the chance of damage from lightening strikes.
MSRP: Environmental Potentials North America EP-2450 and EP-2050 are $750 each while the EP-2750 is $600 for a total of $2,100. Four lucky winners will be receiving this prize package for a grand total prize giveaway of $8,400.

The Tanto VFlex loudspeakers are 1.5-way full range loudspeakers featuring a 16.5 cm wool and paper midrange/bass driver and a 19 mm ring radiator tweeter. The main driver does not use any crossover, while a single capacitor is used with the high frequency driver unit. Using VFlex loading, Tanto is said to reproduce live music with incredible accuracy and with an uncanny sense of "being there." The precision made machined front and back baffles feature a surface with vibration breaking V grooves. Internally, the Tanto VFlex is heavily braced as the inside baffle panel has asymmetric focal grooves to break and spread standing sound wave. Gold plated Cardas loudspeaker binding posts and tripod footing with integrated adjustable spikes round out this impressive design. Sensitivity is 91.5dB/W/m at a 4 Ohm impedance. Frequency response is from 18Hz to 30kHz with dimensions being 36 x 10 x 16 (HxWxD in inches).
MSRP: $5,495 (Note: the winner will receive the soon to be released new version)

Furutech is going to be sending a luck winner their award winning Power Reference III-N1 cable and a two meter length of their Speaker Reference III-N1 cable. The speaker cable features double-shielded Alpha-OCC Conductors to eliminate radiated noise while Formula GC-303 Antimagnetic EMI-Absorbent Modules surround each cable. The wire is insulated with air-foamed Irradiated PE reducing capacitance and damping vibration as the FP-201 Spade terminals are nonmagnetic rhodium-plated pure copper. The cable is said to result in greater resolution, clarity, powerful dynamics, and an ultra-quiet soundstage in which music develops more fully without artificial upper-frequency 'presence region' glare. Furutech's Power Reference III-N1 cable features double-shielded a Alpha-Conductors to eliminate radiated noise and Formula GC-303 Antimagnetic EMI-Absorbent Modules surround each cable. The male side has Rhodium-plated nonmagnetic pure copper while the female side has Rhodium-plated phosphor bronze contacts. Furutech's unique wire-clamping mechanism guarantees ultra firm connections while Twin Flexible PVC sheaths improve vibration isolation. Furutech's GC-303 allows a deeper, tighter bass to form a solid foundation for the rest of the frequency range, better defining the original recording's venue. Natural, unforced detail reveals nuance and energy for an engaging musical experience. Both products are 2007 The Absolute Sound Editors' Choice award winners!
