Taga Harmony PC-5000

Taga Harmony PC-5000 conditionerThe Taga Harmony PC-5000 conditioner is undoubtedly a device which is worth attention. Its most significant advantage is that it has four independent groups of outputs—two for each group, used for power filtering of dedicated devices. And, from the very first moments of listening, you could hear a distinctive change in the high-frequency range. Also, in the reproduced stereo image. The treble became more gentle and smooth, but without loss of dynamics. The effect was as if the Taga Harmony PC-5000 got rid of background noises. And, specific sounds placed over much cleaner sound layers. Generally, the stereophony gained more breath, and the individual tones became slightly more transparent. Also, when I played from a vinyl record, the sound became cleaner with better-controlled bass. Author: Hi-Fi Class – BEST BUY, 21-July-2020.
