Looks promising and big. Wish theres is a passthrough version. Both my power conditions is used up.
I took some shots for you to try and show size. like @iFi audio says (and i agree) its small in real life but not tiny.

My hand is pretty big so it might be tough to figure out size lol so here’s next to a pen!

Much appreciated, this does the job nicely!

That is pretty much the size! :)

I think that it is an acceptable size to fit in a power socket without creating a nuisance for the other appliances

@iFi audio I purchased some more of them for others places in the house and it seems that 2 of them have semi-transparent earth buttons and one of them has a white non-transparent button like the others. Is it a new revision or just different buttons?

Yeah, looks like they made some changes:

@iFi audio Did you use brighter LEDs (or different plastic) for recently produced units?



(Left: new, right: "old")




(Same - left: new, right: "old")




(Swapped - left: "old", right: new)
I prefer the older look.

Thanks for the comparison! One of them also seem to have a nick at the edge in that comparison, 2 of mine that arrived had it as well as some scratches on the gold colored part where the leds are. Bit of a pity but as long as they work nicely I don't mind. Don't know why they made them brighter, I now covered them with some tape so they are only slightly visible, bit annoying at night. I wonder if they changed anything related to the hardware with an exception of the leds, although I doubt it.

I think mine were all pristine when I got them, but the oldest one did a lot of traveling in my backpack and got some bruises as a result. The gold print seems less sharp on the newer ones as well.
I am also impressed by the deep scratches my Tripp-Lite power strip left in the plug legs. At least that should make it easy to tell if what you bought is new or used...

Ordered them from Amazon.de, I don't think they were used, as there was the original plastic with sticker still over it, and the purifier itself is packed in thick foam. I think they came that way from the factory, really weird maybe I'll trade them in for new ones and see if I have more luck.

We haven't and LEDs are the same as well. The difference is in thickness of the top cover and that's it.

Small review.

I put one on my system.

Darker background.
better instrument separation
more details in the recordings
better sound stage.

Wife agreed wants two more for her headphone set up and HT system.

Dang dude talk about a keeper! My GF doesn't want to hear my set up regardless of how many AC ipurifiers I put in it.

By the way- If you guys like this and haven't tried the iUSB3.0, you're going to be amazed.

A totally different product, but yes, iUSB3.0 is special.
