The Absolute Sound Magazine

Credited by readers and music enthusiasts world-wide as the definitive critical journal for high end audio, The Absolute Sound’s editorial vision is clear: select and commercially expose those products that they find in each category represents the “absolute” best in performance and closest to “live music”.

With over 60 years of high-end audio experience between them, and as published professional authors, Editors Robert Harley and Jonathan Valin write and speak with ultimate authority when it comes to defining products that represent the finest in their class.

It’s no surprise, that like their counterparts at Stereophile and SoundStage! magazines, Robert Harley and Jonathan Valin, use complete systems of Shunyata Research Power Distribution products as their long standing references. Shunyata Research products have earned multiple Editors’ Choice and Product Of The Year Award accolades from this venerable high-end authority.

The Shunyata products are the most effective AC products I have had in my system.

They’ve become indispensable parts of my listening system, without which nothing sounds the same or as good.
