High Points
� With a constant 120-volt output and AC noise filtration, the AVS 2000 ensures you're hearing every detail and getting the most from your components.�
� The AVS 2000 has a high enough total power rating that you can plug everything but the craziest of power amplifiers into it. Products such as the massively powerful Krell Evolution series of amplifiers should be plugged directly into your wall outlet.
� The AVS 2000's build quality and finish are first-rate and, after several years of ownership, it has never stalled or quit on me.�

Low Points
� The AVS 2000 is huge, as big if not bigger than most mega-watt power amps, so placement and mobility may be an issue.
� The large meters on the AVS 2000's faceplate look cool at first, but become more of a nuisance as time passes, leaving them largely bypassed for long-term use.
� The AVS 2000's six outlets may prove limiting for large complex systems, which may require additional AVS 2000s or other power products.
� As the AVS 2000 is "correcting" for voltage errors, etc., it does make audible "clunking" sounds, which can be a bit distracting.�

Conclusion
The AVS 2000 has all the right features and qualities needed for a reference-grade power product, save maybe battery backup. While not cheap at just under $1,500, the AVS 2000 is far from the most expensive product in the market today. The AVS 2000 is a solid performer and allows you to get the most from your system in terms of stability, reliability and performance. While it is a bit of a crass visual statement, you cannot deny that when it comes to what matters most, the AVS 2000 delivers.
