I was cynical about these devices but once installed I had to confess that I could hear the difference so easily on my system that I waxed on lyrical about the impact on the sound and bored all my friends.  They thought I was crazy until I gave them a listen with and without this conditioner.

 

And not only could I hear the difference, I could sleep peacefully knowing that my gear would not blow up if left on standby.

 

 

This model is the Special Edition which is a major upgrade on the PC-3 EVO+

Purchased new Sept 2018

 

GIGAWATT PC-3 SE EVO+ is a Special Edition of  the conditioner, improved with better components. The PC-3 SE EVO+ is a technologically advanced, new generation power conditioner, designed to power and protect audio-video systems of Hi-End class. This conditioner not only effectively protects against interference and overvoltage existing in the home power grid, but also guarantees a significant improvement of the quality of sound and displayed picture of the devices connected to it.

 

The main differences to the PC-3 EVO+:

  • Distribution bars made from silver plated, highly conductive copper (99,995%) with a 30mm2 cross-section
  • Carling Technologies hydraulic-magnetic power switch
  • Chassis damped with a bitumen-polymer mat
  • The LC-2 Mk3+ cable as standard equipment

CONSTRUCTION

All internal elements of the conditioner were enclosed in a rigid, steel-aluminum chassis, supported on anti-vibration feet made from solid, anodized aluminum, with a layer of proprietary elastomer 3.5mm thick.

To minimize the vibration passed on the conditioner, the whole chassis is additionally damped with a bitumen-polymer composite mat.

The front panel of the conditioner is made from a thick slab of aviation grade aluminum. Its surface is brushed, after precision milling, and then anodized black or silver.

The PC-3 SE EVO+ has six, high quality proprietary GigaWatt power sockets, with large surface contacts. The brass contacts of the sockets were subdued to the process of technical silver plating without usage of intermediate metals, like copper or nickel, which could introduce an unfavorable serial resistance and a voltage loss. The increased surface of the contacts and the thick layer of silver guarantee good contact with the plug pins. The sockets were additionally cryogenically modified and de-magnetized.

In the central part of the front, there is an LED display indicating the voltage of the input current. The precise voltmeter is very resistant to distortion and measurement errors caused by upper harmonics, at the same time not generating any interference, which would impair the quality of the power filtered by the conditioner.

The voltmeter display is red as standard, but is available in green, blue or white on demand.

The conditioner is also equipped with an additional circuit signaling wrong connection to the power grid. Its action is indicated by a red LED on the back of the unit, which signals wrong polarity of the device or faulty grounding.

  • Doctor Faustus changed the title to FS: GIGAWATT PC-3 SE EVO+ POWER CONDITIONER

I have the evo pc2 se evo+. I agree that these units are excellent. I tried a lot of different filters / conditioners / isolators and the pc2 was the best of any solution that I tried. Obviously the pc3 will improve on that. I think the secret is the huge dual bank of capacitors that acts as a reserve for peaks in music. The build quality is impeccable and there is great peace of mind leaving equipment on standby with this unit.

Sure, it's a conditioner that contains filters.

It was my understanding until now that power filters and conditioners were two different things.  Reading the Gigawatt site, it seems that the words are used with the various devices.  Very confusing to me.  The Gigawatt products are quality and they do provide definite benefits regardless of what the technical aspects are.
