Richard Gray’s Power Company Introduces The Pole Pig  Print E-mail

Richard Gray’s Power Company™ (RGPC) introduces the first 700va, audiophile build quality isolation transformer for the home theater and custom installation markets. Coined the Pole Pig™, it takes its name from the utility company transformer mounted high on poles in so many neighborhoods across America.

Bars that crawl through the picture of a videodisplay, or an annoying hum that you just can’t seem to get rid of, are caused by incompatibilities between your components ground voltages, commonly referred to as ground loops. Like the SubStation, the Pole Pig is designed primarily as an isolation transformer to help eliminate these ground loops that plague home theater systems. The Pole Pig is designed to provide isolation from the neutral and hot legs of the AC line, and aids in RF-band noise removal as well.

Featuring six Hubbell outlets, the Pole Pig is good for isolating the front-end components (preamp, DVD player, music server, etc.) of a home theater system, or can power a complete audiophile-grade audio system. The Pole Pig can be coupled with existing RGPC parallel inductor models resulting in the RGPC IsoGray System. According to RGPC, the Pole Pig within the IsoGray System isolates the front-end components while the patented parallel technology of the 400S MKII, 600S or 1200S provides the rest of the system with instantaneous, high current on demand with no limitations and eliminates inter-component crosstalk.

The Pole Pig also offers surge suppression by way of a 280v clamp and onboard MOV (metal oxide varistor). Combining the Pole Pig with other RGPC products mounts an even stronger, triple-stage surge defense for complete system protection.

The Pole Pig can be mounted in a custom A/V rack, or placed on a shelf of an equipment rack and is available with a black or silver faceplate. The retail price of the Pole Pig is $1,495.00 and is shipping now.
