Torus Power Appoints Karma AV as United Kingdom Distributor for Both Commercial and Residential AV Markets

Karma AV will bring Torus Power toroidal power isolation products to high-end integrators and dealers in the UK, providing dramatically improved AV quality for installations both large and small

TORONTO, ON, CANADA - April 2, 2015 - Torus Power, a subsidiary of Plitron Manufacturing and maker of uncompromising, isolation-transformer-based power components, announced today that Karma AV will be its new distributor in the United Kingdom, selling and supporting Torus's high-performance toroidal power isolation products to local UK dealers and integrators. Torus Power products isolate components from the grid, delivering better video quality and a much lower noise floor in installations of all sizes, enabling integrators an enhanced offering that's highly differentiated in the marketplace.

"After carrying out extensive tests on a range of power equipment, we were very happy to take on the distribution of the Torus Power range, as it provided by far the best power and performance results we have achieved to date-more so than other brands we have tried over the years," says Ian Severs, of Karma AV. "Torus Power's reputation for build quality and product performance gives us significant confidence in the partnership."

Karma AV develops the UK's interest for some of the most desirable high-performance brands in the world, guided by its belief in the highest standards of business ethics and efficacy. The company aims to maintain an inspirational mix of options for systems designers, installers, and their customers. Torus will be in good company with Karma AV's other best-of-breed brands, including Mark Levinson, JBL Synthesis, Revel, Lexicon, Primare, GoldenEar, SVS, Cornered Audio, Perfect Path, and Straightwire.

"Torus is very excited to establish a partnership with Karma AV, a distributor that has nothing but the highest standards for equipment and performance," says Kevin Main, VP of Sales and Marketing for Torus Power. "We believe that Karma AV will have outstanding success with our product line with the UK integration and two-channel communities."
