Isotek  Isotek GII Orion

The Orion series of products are available in blocks of 2, 4, 6 and 8 way formats. They have been developed with a five stage filter. The 4, 6 and 8 way blocks have two high current (partially filtered) mains outlets rated at 2300 watts. The remaining sockets are medium current, fully filtered and are rated at 700 watts. The high current outlets are best suited to amplification and the medium current outlets are best suited to running front-end source components i.e. CD Players, Tuners etc.

Please note, the 2 way block has only two sockets provided, so one is for high current and the other one is for medium current.


The sophisticated Orion circuit has been developed for high-end applications and although compact in scale the Orion is packed with the latest technological breakthroughs.


The Orion uses a complex multiple shunt, multiple series and multiple delta filtering coupled with sophisticated gating principles and proprietary 'Polaris-X' technology. These features effectively stop components seeing or talking to each other and isolate source from high current components.

In the past we have utilised over engineered isolation transformers to reduce a shifting neutral, which often causes mechanical noise within components. Through groundbreaking research and development, we have been able to resolve the problems of neutral shift without the traditional limitations of a components physical size. This technology also paved the way for the research and subsequent release of the Titan.

The Orion represents true cutting edge technology delivered in astonishing industrial design.


Although the Orion can be positioned in a number of environments we recommend that the unit be wall mounted using our dedicated bracket system. If this is not viable, then position the unit so that the LED indicator light is visible and the unit is not covered by cabling, soft furnishings or positioned near heat sources, such as radiators or air ducts. Do not let liquids spill onto the unit. If this should happen, immediately switch of the unit at the wall socket, wait for at least one minute, unplug all other cables and return the unit to your nearest authorised IsoTek dealer.

Equipment coupling

Position the Orion so that the 'IsoTek' logo is facing you and readable. To the left of the unit on the edge is an earth post and IEC inlet, which takes the power from your wall socket. You should also notice an LED indicator light mounted toward the top centrally on this face. When the unit is connected to a mains power supply this light will illuminate giving indication that the Orion is fully powered and functional. The top of the unit features two high quality unswitched outlets, these accept all brands of mains cable.

System integration

We strongly recommend that a good quality mains cable is used and this cable is consistent throughout your system. Look for a cable with good conductors, for example oxygen free copper, this cable should also have a high degree of shielding from RFI.
