    Torus RM20 or Audioquest Niagara 5000

    I currently use a Torus RM-15 and Niagara 1000. I would like to go to one Power conditioner. My options are the Niagara 5000 or Torus RM-20. Any thoughts on what's the best option?
    My system: Monitor Audio PL500 II, Jeff Rowland(JR) 625 S2 amp, JR Corus preamp, JR Aeris DAC, Antipodes DS GT music server, Wireworld Platinum XLR cables and power cords, Wireworld Silver speaker cable.

    I have 3 dedicated ac lines with no power conditioner

    I use a 1000 on the dac, upsampler and 3 computer/network sources and it was a huge improvement. Never felt the need for power conditioner. Have u tried with it?

    I had three different electrician come to my house and all of them said it wasn't worth the trouble of adding dedicated lines. My options are status quo, Torus RM-20, or the Audioquest Niagara 5000. Unless someone has other suggestions under 5k?

    I have had some good power filters like Acustic Revive (old version), Bybee Steulth, and Lessloss. In the end I bought a Torus AVR16 because I am in Europe and for me it is the end of the game.
    But If my system was less powerfull and my wallet more full, I should have tried their PS1230. It is never talked about but 2 friends of mine use the Accuphase PS serie in their systems and the "before and after" test is impressive in sonic results. The build quality is out of this world.

    In my system, going from the Torus RM-15 to the RM-20 is so obviously more detailed that anyone can hear it. Now, to be honest I added the RM-20 and a Shunyata Research SR-Z1 AC Outlet simultaneously. I don't know if it's the combination of both or the additional headroom provided by the RM-20? Something*has enabled my system to breath a little more. Whatever it is, I'm smiling!

    Torus is hard to beat.

    Yes. When I asked my long-term electrician to run dedicated lines to my system, he said, "OK, if you insist." Then I gave him the cable I wanted him to use (JPS Power AC In-Wall cable) and he rolled his eyes. After he finished, he told me that they were a pleasure to work with and made for the easiest work.
