First time we have had the legendary RTP-4 Ultimate from Acoustic Revive here at AE - we are now true believers !
This is no ordinary mains solution..........
Principle and structure
A block of 2017 Duralumin carved out housing!
RTP-4's ultimate`s box is made from 2017 Duralumin, which has the best vibration declining characteristics and excellent sound quality.
A block of 2017 Duralumin has been carved out into a luxury structured box.
Click here for : Comparison of metal materials vibration decrement characteristic
A block carved out structure has far better vibration declining characteristic, sound quality and less distortion compared with thick metal sheet bolted together into a box.
The boxes maximum thickness is 25mm, so not only it has a excellent vibration declining characteristic, it also total shuts out any noise from getting inside, which lead to overwhelming S/N ratio.
A block of Duralumin weighs 4kg (8.8 Pounds) for RTP-4 ultimate.
A block is been carved out using a precision processing machine. It takes about 8 hours for RTP-4 Ultimate
Eliminates noise and static electricity non-contact and non-magnetism!
RTP-4 Ultimate`s box is filled with Green carborundum, Tourmaline powder and natural quartz powder to eliminate noise and static electricity without contact and non-magnetism.
The highly engineered power supply box uses series type noise filters.
These series type filters transfer noise elements to heat by magnetic energy which not only absorbs noise, it also absorbs important and disruptive electrical energy.
This is because an electromagnetic wave absorbent material itself is a strong magnetic body.
Also parallel type noise filter or choke coil can not avoid loss in transmission energy.
The RTP-4 Ultimate eliminates noise while at the same time it takes away the feeling of restraint and lack of energy from the sound, allowing the full vibrancy of the music to be enjoyed.
Green carborundum has no side effects because it non-magnetic body.
It only absorbs electromagnetic wave noise which is produced from receptacles and internal wiring.
Green carborundum is the only electromagnetic wave absorbent material which improves sound quality and S/N ratio.
Also the Tourmaline powder releases negative ions and keeps the amount of static electricity very low.
The natural quartz powder releases infrared rays which has an surface activation effect. This leads to very realistic holographic sound and a sound filled with a feeling of life and verve.
After the block has been carved out, it gets treated by Sand Blast Process and the surface gets a coating of Snow White Alumite. The lid gets treated by Hair Line Process and on top that, the surface gets treated by Black Alumite.
Electro magnet absorbing material Green carborundum is placed inside the Snow White Alumite treated chassis.
Top quality Lithia tourmaline powder and natural quartz powder gets mixed into Epoxy resin. Instead of using industrial use black tourmaline, for RTP ultimate series, we use top quality Lithia tourmaline which releases more negative ions.
Epoxy resin which contains Lithia tourmaline powder and natural quartz powder gets pored on the top of Green carborundum carefully.
The chassis is set and poured with Green carborundum, Lithia tourmaline powder and natural quartz powder. The chassis is left for about a week for the epoxy resin to fully set.
Carved out brass foot with epoch-making vibration control material!
Underneath the RTP-4 Ultimate`s box, there are brass carved large feet, all are height adjustable.
The combination of 2017 Duralumin box and brass foot will eliminate both materials resonant frequency.
To further improve vibration control effect, a special vibration control sheet in placed internally underneath the brass feet.
This is a very unique sound quality adjustment material developed by professor Masao Sumita at Tokyo Institute of Technology by getting a Pre-venture support from JST (Japan Science and Technology Agency).
This epoch-making material carries an overwhelming vibration control characteristic.
It transfers and eliminates vibration energy from electrical energy to heat energy.
The RTP-4 Ultimate has a combination of Duralumin, brass and this leads to the ultimate vibration control structure.
OYAIDE`s special version Beryllium copper electrode adopted R-1 for receptacle!
For RTP-4 Ultimate`s receptacles, we adopted the OYAIDE`S R-1 special version.
R-1`s electrode material is made from Beryllium copper, which has the best conductive characteristics.
The electrodes surface have been mirror polished to further improve conduct characteristic.
We at ACOUSTIC REVIVE have changed the electrode parts to a thicker silver plating and a even thicker rhodium plating which has the best conductive characteristics and phase characteristics and only the electrode parts have been Super cryogenic treated (-196oC) to improve conductive characteristics to the limit.
Most other companies cryogenic treated receptacles gets the treatment applied the the whole mains receptacle, but because the shrinkage rate is different, resin parts get damaged and deteriorated and product and sound quality get destroyed badly. This is why we at ACOUSTIC REIVE only treat the conduct parts
The ultimate material for power supply inlet and internal wiring too!
We adopted the ultimate power supply inlet and internal wiring for RTP-4 Ultimate.
I the same process as the receptacles, the power supply inlet has been Super cryogenic treated and treated with thick silver plating and thick rhodium plating.
The inlet wiring connection is non-solder. We at ACOUSTIC REVIVE do not adopt solder because it destroys transmission badly.
For internal wiring, we adopted the FURUKAWA Electrical Industry’s oval shaped very thick PCOCC-A which as the ultimate conduct characteristic. PCOCC-A is a annealed version of PCOCC (single crystal copper) manufactured by the high technology of FURUKAWA Electrical Industry.
Not only has PCOCC-A a better conduct characteristics than PCOCC (Please look at the PCOCC-A & PCOCC comparison list below), but it has a single core crystal design, thus the chance of impurities getting inside is very low even it gets annealed.
So it has a far better conductive characteristics and higher purity than a normal high purity conductor such as 6N. This high conduct character PCOCC-A is made into oval shaped single core which has no 'peaky' or distorted feel to sound quality compared with the round, rectangle, flat shaped conductor.

Beautiful finish, improving sound quality and keeping long term product quality
To keep the physical product to a uber high quality and sound quality in long term, the 2017 Duralumin made box is treated top quality pear surfaced Snow White Alumite, and lid is treated with top quality Black Hair Line finish.
The brass food is treated with top quality mirror surface finish Chrome plating.
