In development by AV Options for over a year, the ULTRA-HBL is easily the best Power Strip we’ve ever tested for any level of Naim Audio system. It’s a significant step up from the SuperWiremold and the PDC. Amazing PRAT, very low noise and superb dynamic performance.
The ULTRA-HBL is also an excellent match with other audio electronics, Rega, Linn, Spectral, Quad, etc. For example we tested this Rega system : Elicit integrated amp, Aria phono stage, Saturn CD player and RP10 turntable powered by the ULTRA-HBL, wired up with TibiaPlus12 Deep-Cryo AC cables and our Hubbell Deep-Cryo duplex wall outlet. The result was astonishingly good performance!

The SuperWiremold Deep-Cryo Power Strip was developed by AV Options (using a variety of Naim Audio based systems) as the foundation of our AC Power distribution solution.

Lower noise floor, increased clarity and dynamics and no current restriction. A superb value and easily competitive with audio grade power strips up to double the price.

I picked up the ULTRA-HBL Deep-Cryo Power Strip the day it arrived at the Fed Ex store and installed it in my system that evening, so it has been breaking in for close to four weeks. There's a great improvement to my Spectral (DMC20 preamp-DMA90 amp-Sony SCD-1 CD/SACD player) based system; more articulation, greater clarity, and because of that, an extended range - better bass and improved sound staging. Kudos to AV Options!

The ULTRA-HBL sounds fantastic - huge improvement even cold (literally)! Noise floor is so much lower now and everything sounds so much bigger and more dynamic and effortless. I’m sure the metal housing has something to do with the above. I can already imagine how great it’s going to sound in a few weeks - thanks for such a great product!

After a week of listening with my new ULTRA-HBL power strip, I must
say I am truly impressed with the results. Along with the Naim DR upgrades from AV Options, this is
one of the “biggest bang for the buck” tweaks I have done to my system. The AV Options ULTRA-HBL
crushes the Adept Response PDC that I was running previously.
The benefits from the ULTRA-HBL that I've heard so far include: expanded soundstage, improved PRAT - which is amazing based upon how good my system delivered PRAT before adding the power strip, and higher level of clarity of musical note and voice. Thanks for developing such a great product.

Chris, Nick and David, thanks again for the wonderful advice and assistance regarding all things audio over the last couple of months.
The SuperWiremold Deep-Cryo Power Strip has really come alive! The upper frequencies sparkled from the onset and within 2 weeks the whole spectrum fully bloomed. The end result is quite exceptional. In terms of value, nothing compares.

I decided to try the new AV Options TibiaPlus12 Deep-Cryo AC cable for all my recently rebuilt by AV Options Naim components (NAC82 preamp, SuperCap power supply, NAP250 amp and CDX2 CD player) including Rega’s RP10 turntable power supply. The musicality improvement over the already very good TibiaPlus AC cables I was using is absolutely astounding for both CDs and LPs in terms of greater dynamics and clean, deeper bass with all the PRAT intact!!!
Many thanks to Chris, Nick and David for their fantastic service and products!

Thanks for the prompt shipping of the SuperWiremold.
Right out of the box made an improvement in my system’s sound, with increased resolution.

The SuperWiremold and power cord arrived yesterday. After resetting all my power cables I ran some thick orchestrations through the system — Richard Strauss, Holst and Mahler. My reaction was the same as Art Dudley’s. Everything was much cleaner, individual instruments and voices more forward and less volume boost necessary. I did not realize how the old Power Wedge was obscuring so much. It may be just psychological, but I also thought the back lights on my power and pre amps were brighter.
In any event, this was a very good investment. I will spread the word among the Tulsa audiophile community. Thanks for an excellent product.
—Ron W., Tulsa, OK, September 2015
Just a line to say that this SuperWiremold is a really good product. Music seems clearer through it than through my CablePro Revelation, as well as seeming to have a more solid foundation and quieter backgrounds. The Audiopro was being used with a $300+ JPS Labs ac cord and still, the wiremold is a very definite uptick.
I put very little faith in a.c. upgrades (as opposed to interconnects and speaker cables) so I am very pleasantly surprised at the clearly discernible differences the SuperWiremold has made in my system. My thanks to you and Chris West for the great service and even more so for an excellent product, which even a skeptic like me cannot deny what I hear. This product is everything Art Dudley said it was and even more so.
All best wishes,
—Jimmy S., Bronxville, NY, September 2015
I set up the power bar last night and am impressed. I got home late and had time to listen to just 1 CD: The Doors Live in Pittsburgh, May 1970. I know this CD well and love it, and could immediately hear the difference. The music was more immediate and the presentation was just more musical. I really enjoyed it.
Art Dudley was right – your SuperWiremold is a no-brainer for any person with a decent sound system who enjoys listening to music. Kudos to you and your company for providing a great product!
—William L., New Haven, CT, August 2015
Got it today [SuperWiremold]
right out of box....WOW!
Way, way better than furman filter conditioner thingy. Love it when an improvement is black and white.
great product! Very crispy detail....that I never had before.

Thanks a Million!
I just wanted to thank you guys again for helping me get the most out of my system. I was skeptical that the AV Options SuperWiremold Deep-Cryo Power Strip, your Hubbell Deep-Cryo AC Wall Outlet and TibiaPlus Deep-Cryo AC Cables could improve the sound of my modest system, but they did improve it. The increased resolution had me take notice immediately.
I can now turn down the volume because I hear way more resolution. It was a little shocking at how bad my previous power situation was. Sound-staging and timbre were the most immediate effects I noticed. I'm so impressed at what you guys have done and especially for taking your time and figuring out what my best options to improve my system should be.
—Mark A., Renton, WA, September 2015
I recently received back my fully restored Olive system - 52/SCAP & 135 amps - (along with the newly purchased AV Options SuperWiremold Power Strip & AV Options TibiaPlus AC Cables, Hubbell Deep-Cryo AC Wall Outlet plus my NACA5 speaker cables re-terminated and Deep-Cryoed) and am very pleased to say the system now sounds superb, in fact sufficiently better than the original when new. The detail, depth, clarity and dynamic range of my well played music is very significantly better — and after one week of listening, continues to improve. Money very well spent!
It’s clear that you are experts and know Naim Audio products. That provided a level of confidence sufficient for me to make the financial investment. Congratulations to you & the AV Options team!
Lester T., San Jose, CA, September 2015
I received the two AVO Deep Cryo Tibia Power Cords today.
After just a few hours on the 2 HiCaps to my 282, I can hear that you are on to something.
I would like to order 3 more please.
Thank You Very Much!

A highly recommended upgrade over any stock AC duplex wall outlet. Excellent performance for far less cost than many exotic wall outlets costing hundreds of dollars.
