Review: Keces BP-1200 – Dirty Power

Keces BP-1200

What the BP-1200 does is it uses a transformer with two windings to transfer energy via a shielded magnetic field so there is no actual connection to the original power wires.  I have been told that not only do recording studios use such technology, but so do hospitals, where their precision instruments can be very susceptible to dirty power.  As before, I will provide a link where what the BP-1200 actually does will be described in greater detail.  The thing with me is, I am less concerned with how it works (I am not very scientifically inclined), than IF it works.  So, let’s hook it up and see what, if any, difference it will make.

The Result

Can you say Hallelujah?  You can call it snake oil all you want, but there is no denying the huge difference it makes in my sound system.  It is literally night and day (as in I listen to it during the day, and it now sounds like it does during the night hours).  I am going to use the Hifiman HE-560 to describe the changes as it is a well-known quantity at this point .  And what is one thing we know about the HE-560?  It has amazing bass quality.  Hearing the bass of the Hifiman HE-560 sound like a gelatinous blob has to clue you into something being wrong.  There is a lack of detail and clarity in all frequencies, and a total lack of air when I find myself with the opportunity to listen to music during the day.  When fed through the BP-1200, the amazing detail and texture of the bass come back with amazing clarity.  Instrument detail and transient response across the spectrum are greatly enhanced (or, should I say, made to sound like they should).  The proper amount of air up top returns.

I am as skeptical as anyone when it comes to products with miraculous claims made about them.  In the audiophile world, nary is there a forum page where someone doesn’t have a bridge to sell.  I really wasn’t sure what to expect with the BP-1200.  But it did exactly what I hoped it would do.  Now, when I have the opportunity to fire up my system during the day, I can rest easy knowing I have the same great sound quality that I have at night.

Conclusion

So, would you benefit from one of these?  If you have no issues ever with your system, things sound like they should at all hours of the day, and you think I am full of crap, this probably isn’t for you.  However, if some of the things I said here ring true, if some of the issues I described sound familiar, you owe it to yourself to give this a try.  Before you start buying crazy upgrades for your headphone cables or interconnects, maybe this is what you need.  Keces audio actually has three models available:  this one, the BP-1200 which retails for $799, the BP-600 (two outlets) for $499 and the BP-2400 (eight outlets) for $1399.  Buy the one that fits your needs.  It made a huge difference for me.
