Thank you very much for the AC Regenerator. It has transformed my humble system. Listening last night, I could not believe how natural and dynamic the Black Keys' "Brothers" album sounded. I had not played this CD in a long time because of its use of compression and distortion, which would tire me very quickly. It actually sounded dynamic--the drums sounded particularly real, and the bass had the impact and drive I had not experienced before at home. I'm listening to Bill Evans as I type this, and the sound is as close to live as I have ever heard. Now I'm beginning to wonder if your DIP Combo would bring further musical improvement. I have been using DIP Classic since 2010. Could I get a deal on a DIP Combo?

I'm really impressed with the AC Regenerator of yours. But just like your DIP Combo its benefits are a bit too subtle for my old ears to distinguish. My oscilloscope, however, demonstrates what an amazing job the Regenerator is doing! Without the unit the signal looks "angry" with little frustrated bursts of noise happening every few seconds. With the Regenerator it looks like a perfect sine-wave - smooth, constant and calm.
It's not very fun to swap the Regenerator in and out, so I only did it twice. I have my NM24 and DIP Combo plugged into it. But it really felt like the frequency extension of my system smoothed-out; like the three drivers of each speaker blended together better, more harmoniously. I'd also say it added to my system's ability to disappear - there's very little "stereo-system" to listen to, there's just music in the air.
Thanks for everything, Ching!

Hello Mr. Poon. We received the regenerator undamaged last Friday. I was gone over the weekend and have just been able to hook it up. So far I have it connected to my NM24 DAC only. Later I will also hook up the transport. I am very pleased and slightly surprised at what I am hearing so far.
I expected some increase in detail and a quieter background. I did not expect such a noticable improvement. The music sounds more dynamic and alive. Bass is much improved and so is the treble which I usually don't pay that much attention to. I am surprised as I already have a fair amount of power conditioning. I have dedicated power lines for the amps and digital, separate power conditioners, after market power cords. I was very happy with the sound of my system before and wondered how much it could be improved on. I've only listened to a few CD's so far. I'm afraid you have doomed me to revisit alot of my CD collection.
Dear Dr. Poon,
Should I leave the device turned on all the time? Can it be mounted on the equipment rack, or should it be isolated? Should it be plugged into a separate outlet?
Congratulations to everyone who worked on this project.

There is not much I can say about the Monarchy Audio AC-Regenerator that hasn’t already been said in the Reviews or user comments. I will say that the Regenerator made a dramatic improvement when incorporated into my system. I have read several articles regarding inaudible noise that is in the AC power lines that can affect the overall sound quality. It wasn’t until I hooked up the AC-Regenerator, that I really understood what the writers were referring to. It was like a veil had been removed from the music, the bass was more revealing and the overall sound was clearer, livelier and seemed to have more punch than before.
Some users complained about fan noise at the 400Hz setting, but I did not experience any fan noise at that setting. I have been a BIG fan of Monarchy’s product line and have purchased
Thank-you Mr. Poon and the staff at Monarchy for another great product
Anyone who has the NM24 and Dip Upsampler, the additional purchase of the AC-Regenerator is not an option but is "Sine Qua Non' if one wants to experience High-End Musical Reproduction at its "FINEST".
Thank you Mr. Poon.
thanks for the very fast shipping, great connectors much appreciated. Have connected the NM24 to the AC regenerator and I must say this has already made a change. For example Piano more believable timbre, great transients and lots of air. Wonderful product.
Dear Mr. Poon,
I have received the P100 AC Regenerator today, in perfect condition.
The P100 has really enhanced the overall performance of my system. I have only hooked up my Marantz SA7 CD player with the P100. The sound stage is now wider, vocal is more focused and it revealed a lot more details which previously I have not noticed, the background noise has also further reduced.
Please advise if I could write you a feedback in the Audiogon, with regards to your product and service.
