Executive Tweak! Enacom AC Noise Eliminator Limited Edition.

The new Limited Edition executive tweak, for AC Noise Elimination, by Enacom.

The last time I tried on the Enacom AC Noise Eliminator(see Odiosleuth's review dated 08 July 2010 and my over view dated 26 September 2010), I ended up buying the review sample and still enjoying it's wonderful, if less than subtle effects in my system today. When I got a call from MK Lai of Nova Hifi, asking if I am keen to try out the just arrived Limited Edition? And why not!

The Limited Edition is a further refinement of the concept with the use of high grade Harmonix power cord, and audiophile grade Wattgate US style plug, as pictured above.
My original version Enacom AC Noise Eliminator, with standard 2 pin plug and thin diameter power cord. Still in use for this comparison.

The new version Limited Edition come with audiophile grade Wattgate US Nema style plug connected to the Enacom tweak via thick black, and stiff Harmonix power cord.  It's so stiff the Enacom can do the "Negara Ku!" Ha! Ha!

What ever sonic observations I note in this review is basically comparing between the basic version, of which I already use and the Limited Edition executive tweak! The new premium version sounds even more silent in the musical back grounds, over the already dark original. The main difference I immediately heard was the tightening of the imaging outlines. While the original version had a rather organic presentation of the imaging outlines, the executive tweak highlights the outlines in a more striking manner. It's not unlike using a pencil to draw around an object we wish to highlight from a piece of art paper back ground, back in our junior art classes!

That very sonic property alone makes for more stable imaging across the sound stage, in the right system. I however suspect that in another system that is already strong on this aspect, adding the Enacom AC Noise Eliminator Limited Edition, priced at RM$950/pc, may prove to be too much of a good thing, which in this case, the regular Joe version may be a better option, value proposition aside. As with all tweaks, try before you buy is well advised.
The packaging of the Limited Edition looks standard though!

I did try the Enacom AC noise eliminator.

I find that overall music loses a bit of a "life" to the sound. Imaging become less 3D.

Hi All!

Thanks for the participating feedback. YMMV is the key here, it would seem to benefit some systems more than others. Essentially all tweaks must be tested in the context of one's system before adopting for permanent.

Some smart cookie DIY-er can even construct his own version of this Enacom easilly, with a bit of electrical knowledge.
