The MiniSub Chroma combines the architecture of the VMC1080 and the acclaimed MiniSub Wave to bring pure power to AV systems in one convenient package.
Video, low and high current loads all need different treatment to allow a quality AV system to operate at peak potential. The same separated filter topology found across our high performance and audiophile products forms the basis of the Chroma allowing each equipment type to deliver peak performance.
One outlet has a special broadband Transmodal filter, implemented with custom magnetics, designed to sink noise from your video display's hard working power supply. This can improve picture detail and reduce motion artifacts.
For other low current loads, such as source and video playback components, there are three other outlets each with a separate filter network.
Separate filters are the feature that made the original MiniSub such a ground breaking product. It reduces system component cross contamination, stopping mains borne noise from one system component affecting others.
Unlike most other conditioners, which only deal with common mode noise, the video and low/med power outlets can suppress both common and differential mode noise, without shunting noise to ground thanks to our Transmodal filter topology.
For more demanding loads, like amplifiers, the separate high power section has a multistage filter using custom wound components with very low impedance. This cleans current hungry, noisy components effectively without squashing dynamic performance.
The MiniSub Chroma is hand crafted for outstanding build quality. We engineer our products rigorously to provide unbeatable performance that will last a lifetime. Inside the quality casework you will find the same carefully auditioned polypropylene capacitors, Mundorf OFC inductors, high grade connectors, and custom ISOL-8 chokes that are found in our high end audiophile products. You will also have the peace of mind that comes with our spike and surge protection. All ISOL-8 products are designed and manufactured in the UK and come with a five year guarantee in the UK.
The MiniSub Chroma is engineered to give your AV system an effective system wide upgrade with no compromise in audio pace, rhythm and timing. The clean, stable power supply it provides allows you to enjoy each and every performance delivered at maximum potential.

Nic Poulson founded Isol-8 Teknologies in 2003.Nic's background was originally in broadcast engineering. He trained and worked for the BBC as a sound engineer and the corporation's legendary high standards made a deep impression on him. He learned that the way to achieve true quality is to strive for excellence in every area and accept nothing less.
After leaving the BBC, Nic had become an established electronics designer with success in both audio amplification, with ISOL-8's sister company Trilogy Audio Systems. He then formed IsoTek Systems after identifying the need to tackle the problems of compromised power supply in Hi-Fi and AV systems. An area he believed was being misunderstood and neglected by mainstream manufacturers. ISOL-8 was then founded to continue developing Nicís ideas.
Nic pioneered the use of multiple filter sections to tackle noise cross contamination between audio components. He also has championed the use of DC blocking to further improve sound quality. The use of Transmodal filter technology which blocks common and differential mode noise without shunting the noise to ground is, we believe, unique to ISOL-8 in audio and AV applications.
Product Designer Simon Dart and Nic are both keen audiophiles. Together they have the balance of skills to innovate and deliver exceptional products. Above all they have the passion to push forward the standards of reproduced sound. This passion is what makes ISOL-8 the leading force in power conditioning.
