The deal I found, plain and simple.
It's no secret isolation transformers are hugely expensive and wouldn't be in my budget at retail pricing, but I wanted one for my system so I shopped for all three brands on the used market.
I almost landed on two different Torus units before finding a steal on a Powerhouse. A guy had been trying to sell one on Audiogon for almost a year and finally put it out on a no reserve auction to get rid of it which I ended up winning.
A Powerhouse just recently sold on eBay for $1763
plus freight which is the cheapest I've ever seen one close.
Perhaps I should have reached out to
As a side-note, I don't have a huge wattage Tripp Lite UPS like
, but I own an APC S20 which I'll plug into the Powerhouse and which will give about 1000 watts of battery back up for 5 minutes. For programming, I'll let the batteries do their thing for up to two minutes. If the power isn't restored by that point, the automation system will initiate a shutdown sequence.
