CaracterísticasSe trata de un diseño en formato de regleta, muy agradable esteticamente pues esta realizado en aluminio y acero inoxidable, lo que lo hace mas adecuado para sistemas donde el rspacio no permite la posibilidad de usar un chasis tipo rack.
Dispone de la misma tecnologia que el Minisub pero el hecho de que este dispuesta en una placa mas pequeña y con otro chasis hace que pierda algo de prestaciones respecto a aquel.
De todas formas puede ser usado en equipos de alto nivel, sobretodo si se usan dos unidades, una de las cuales alimentaria los dispositivos digitales y la otra los analogicos.
En este caso los resultados serian algo superiores a los de un Minisub.
Para conseguir mayor versatilidad este modelo se fabrica con dos, cuatro, seis y ocho enchufes y tiene una capacidad de potencia de hasta 3000 watios.
The Orion has two sockets, one medium output and one high output. It has been developed to work with a source component and a high current device, integrated amplifier or power amplifier. It is possible to use a number of Orions throughout an audio system, for example two Orion's to power a CD, DAC, pre / power system combination. In this application the performance would be superior to a GII Mini Sub.
The sophisticated Orion circuit has been developed for high-end applications and although compact in scale the Orion is packed with the latest technological breakthroughs.
The Orion uses a complex multiple shunt, multiple series and multiple delta filtering coupled with sophisticated gating principles and proprietary 'Polaris-X' technology. These features effectively stop components seeing or talking to each other and isolate source from high current components.
In the past we have utilised over engineered isolation transformers to reduce a shifting neutral, which often causes mechanical noise within components. Through groundbreaking research and development, we have been able to resolve the problems of neutral shift without the traditional limitations of a components physical size. This technology also paved the way for the research and subsequent release of the Titan.
The Orion features two high quality unswitched sockets, one rated at 700 watts (medium) ideal for source components, CDs, DVD, SACDs, turntables etc, and the second rated at 2300 watts for high current devices, for example projectors, large integrated and power amplifiers. It is however also possible to use the high current socket on source components.
The Orion represents true cutting edge technology delivered in astonishing industrial design.
Although the Orion can be positioned in a number of environments we recommend that the unit be wall mounted using our dedicated bracket system. If this is not viable, then position the unit so that the LED indicator light is visible and the unit is not covered by cabling, soft furnishings or positioned near heat sources, such as radiators or air ducts. Do not let liquids spill onto the unit. If this should happen, immediately switch of the unit at the wall socket, wait for at least one minute, unplug all other cables and return the unit to your nearest authorised IsoTek dealer.
Position the Orion so that the 'IsoTek' logo is facing you and readable. To the left of the unit on the edge is an earth post and IEC inlet, which takes the power from your wall socket. You should also notice an LED indicator light mounted toward the top centrally on this face. When the unit is connected to a mains power supply this light will illuminate giving indication that the Orion is fully powered and functional. The top of the unit features two high quality unswitched outlets, these accept all brands of mains cable.
We strongly recommend that a good quality mains cable is used and this cable is consistent throughout your system. Look for a cable with good conductors, for example oxygen free copper, this cable should also have a high degree of shielding from RFI.
