IsoTek Full System Enhancer is featured in What Hi-Fi? Christmas accessories round up and awarded 5-Stars. This is also the third positive review for the FSE in the UK alone since it's launch in 2004.
IsoTek Full System Enhancer Wins 5-Stars
IsoTek's amazing GII Mini Sub wins best in class for the third year running in Hi-Fi Choice Magazine. The GII Mini Sub won 'Best Mains Conditioner / Power Cable' beating rivals Russ Andrews Silencer Block and Supra LoRad mains cable.
Hi-Fi Choice commented:
"The quality of the mains electricity that you feed your hi-fi can have a profound effect on its sound, as IsoTek knows. The company specialises in products designed to optimise mains quality, and this year it has introduced some excellent new conditioners, including the high-end Nova and Titan. But for our Gold Award we've returned to an old favourite - the GII Mini Sub."
The event took place in London's famous Park Lane, with Tim Bowern, Hi-Fi Choice's Editor, personally presenting the awards.

The London High-End Audio Show was once again held in the Renaissance & Park Inn Hotels, London Heathrow on the 24th - 25th September 2005.
However the high light of the event was at the Hi-Fi News glittering awards dinner where the IsoTek Titan was voted 'Best Accessory'. This is the 3rd award IsoTek have won from Hi-Fi News in the last 4 years. However what is more significant is that IsoTek have now won 14 major UK Industry awards since the company was formed in July 2001!
This latest achievement reinforces the talented team of designers appointed to head up the now revolutionary and unique range of GII products.
Hi-Fi News commented on the Titan:
"This mains filter has singly redefined what is possible for cleaning mains quality, particularly for power amplifiers which traditionally have not been suited to this kind of treatment. Peerless looks and build add to a package that can fundamentally improve a system's sound."
Titan Wins Top Award At London Show
The High-End Audio Show in Hong Kong was once again held in Hong Kong's prestigious Convention and Exhibition Centre on the 5th, 6th and 7th August 2005.
Overlooking famed Victoria Harbour, the Centre is located in the business hub of Asia, and Hong Kong's bustling Wanchai district as well as being conveniently linked by covered walkways to adjacent luxury hotels, including the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong and the Renaissance Harbour View Hotel. Also close are the MTR -Hong Kong's modern subway system - the airport bus, city buses and ferries, banking, the main post office, and all the shopping and entertainment that Hong Kong is famous for.
The show, one of the largest events in the Asian Pacific calendar featured many of the top names in premium High-End audio and formed the perfect launch pad for IsoTek products into the Hong Kong market place. The event gave us the time to spend with our distributor Tar Labs (Far East) Ltd as well as to talk to journalists and the media at large.

The IsoTek team were also in attendance at the High-End show in Munich, Europes largest audio event. It was the perfect venue to exhibit, for the first time in Germany. The show was a well attended event and gave opportunity to meet the growing German dealer network, as well as meeting up with some old friends.
The second review of Titan came from What Hi-Fi? magazine, not a publication one would assiciate with high-end power conditioners.
"This is the most expensive mains filter we've tested - and it's also the best." The Titan was awarded 5-Stars.

Hi-Fi News release the first review of the Titan, the Titan replaces the old IsoTek range isolation transformer based 'Qubes'. This world exclusive review was covered by two journalists each with very different audio systems. The conclusion was a unanimous recommendation.
"I always felt mains isolation transformers were as good as it gets when it comes to clean power for amplifiers; but the Titan was far superior to IsoTek's 2K Qube, and even Isol-8's 4K Qube, also on hand as a reference. In fact it was superior to every other mains treatment I've heard to date."
First Titan Review in Hi-Fi News
IsoTek display Nova, at the Bristol Sound and Vision Show in England as well as The Moscow High-End Audio Show in Russia.
February also saw the first test of the new GII Gemini-6-Way power strip in What Hi-Fi? This was a group test in which the IsoTek model came out ahead of the competition which consisted of a Monster Cable strip and a more expensive Isol-8 Cleanline, both scoring a meagre 3-Stars.
What Hi-Fi? commented:
"The IsoTek is a stunning performer giving a good overall tonal balance throughout the frequency range - it might look a bit plain, but it lets music and movies flow with ease."
The Gemini-6-Way was awarded 5-Stars the highest rating.
