Accuphase PS-530 CLEAN POWER SUPPLY

One has to go back in time a very long way to experience recorded audio without the benefit of electrical power. Indeed electrical power is fundamental to every home audio system, in my opinion only second in importance to the actual recorded music, and then only by a small margin. What most people fail to realize is that the energy that flows from a wall socket is really a “Power Signal”. This power signal should be 50Hz and the figure is well within the Audio band. The nature of our power generation, distribution grid and varied load characteristics results in a horribly polluted 50Hz Power Signal. Additionally this signal is actually altered by the huge number of power factor modifying loads it is required to drive. This polluted and corrupted power can easily and usually does adversely effect the quality of audio a system can deliver. There are solutions and this Accuphase Clean Power Supply is one worthy example.

The king is dead – Long live the King!

Actually, the King lives on but stronger and more useful than ever. The incredibly effective and amazingly well-received Niagara 1000 is being upgraded to the simply-better Niagara 1200. 100% of the performance in a more useful package.

The most obvious difference between the Niagaras 1000 and 1200, other than the 1200’s gorgeous textured bright finish, are the more universally useful shape and surprisingly sub- stantial weight. The 1200 can now sit on a shelf like a component, with all the in and out cables in the back. It can be used ‘face’ down with the outlets in the air, fitting much better in the space between furniture and the wall. And, the 1200 is designed to stand on one end.

Power cord not included.  Minimum required is NRG Z3.

AudioQuest Niagara 3000 Low Z Power Noise Dissipation System

AudioQuest Niagara 3000 Low Z Power Noise Dissipation System

$3,999.95

The Niagara 3000 features AudioQuest’s patented AC Ground Noise-Dissipation System, the widest bandwidth-linearized AC filter in the industry, and AudioQuest’s unique passive/active Transient Power Correction Circuit. Boasting an instantaneous current reservoir of over 55 amps peak, the Niagara 3000 is specifically designed for today’s current-starved power amplifiers.

Though it’s easy to tout a given technology, it’s quite another thing to create a solution that is consistent, holistic, functional, and that honors verifiable science. It’s not enough to reduce AC line noise and its associated distortions at just one octave, thus leaving vulnerable the adjacent octaves and octave partials to noise, resonant peaking, or insufficient noise reduction. Consistency is key. We should never accept superior resolution in one octave, only to suffer from masking effects a half-octave away and ringing artifacts two octaves from there. This is the principal criterion for AudioQuest’s Low-Z Power Noise-Dissipation System.

AudioQuest Niagara 5000 Power Conditioner

AudioQuest Niagara 5000 Power Conditioner

$6,499.95

AudioQuest’s Niagara 5000 12-outlet power conditioner is a revolutionary product that’s packed with features and performance, staring with non-sacrificial surge suppression. Non-sacrificial means there’s nothing to damage with repeated 6000V/3000A input surge tests, which is the maximum that can survive through a building’s AC electrical panel. It also offers extreme voltage shutdown Voltage; 140VAC will activate the main high-current relay to open within less than 0.25 second, and automatically resets once the incoming power is within a safe range.

The Niagara 5000 also provides common-mode noise dissipation in excess of 30dB from 20kHz to 100MHz, linearized for dynamic (rising) line impedance with frequency (source) and 10 to 50 ohm load, system current dependent. You’ll hear and see the difference that the Niagara makes with your AV system components.

The 12-outlet Niagara 5000 features four isolated AC power outlet groups. Four provide High Current/Transient Power Correction, and provide Ultra-Linear Noise Dissipation System Power. Power consumption is typically, less than 0.25 amps at 120VAC input, or with the power correction switched to Standby setting. The input current maximum capacity is 20 amps RMS (total).

Power cord not included.  Minimum required is Monsoon 20A.

The science of AC power delivery is not a simple one. It demands focus, and the devil is in the details. In fact, the great increase in airborne and AC-line-transmitted radio signals, combined with overtaxed utility lines and the ever-increasing demands from high-definition audio/ video components, has turned our utilities’ AC power into a somewhat antiquated technology.

Where Alternating Current (AC) is concerned, we’re relying on a century-old technology created for incandescent lights and electric motors. This is technology that was certainly never meant to power the sophisticated analog and digital circuits used in today’s premium audio/video systems. To properly accommodate the promise of today’s ever-increasing bandwidth and dynamic range, we must achieve extraordinarily low noise across a very wide range of frequencies.

Today’s power amplifiers are being taxed for instantaneous peak-current demand, even when they’re driven at modest volumes. Although we have seen a substantial increase in dynamics from much of our audio software, the loudspeakers we employ to reproduce them are often no more efficient than they were two to four decades ago. This places great demands on an amplifier’s power supply, as well as the source AC power supplying it.

Our systems’ sensitive components need better alternating current—a fact that has resulted in a host of AC power conditioning, isolation transformer, regeneration amplifier, and battery back-up system topologies. Through differential sample tests and spectrum analysis, it can be proven that up to a third of a high-resolution (low-level) audio signal can be lost, masked, or highly distorted by the vast levels of noise riding along the AC power lines that feed our components. This noise couples into the signal circuitry as current noise and through AC ground, permanently distorting and/or masking the source signal.

There has to be a better way. AudioQuest leads the way with the Niagara 7000. Experience the Niagara 7000 and hear firsthand the remarkable results of highly optimized power management: startlingly deep silences, stunning dynamic freedom, outstanding retrieval of ambience cues, and gorgeous delineation of instruments and musicians in space. Once you’ve experienced it, it may seem so elegant, so logical, and so obvious that you find yourself wondering why it hadn’t been done before.

For over 40 years, Furman has pioneered the development of AC power products for the most demanding audio, video, and broadcast professionals. Though the need for pristine AC power is nothing new, the Elite-15i’s technology and its unique implementation are revolutionary and without peer.

The extreme AC demands encountered in the professional audio/video arena have required technological developments far in excess of typical home theater/audiophile power products. In studios, live sound, and broadcast facilities, breakdown is unacceptable. Equipment failure or poor performance is costly. The same is true of today’s home theater. Our solution based technology, extensive engineering expertise, and robust build quality have answered the challenge of today’s corrupted power lines, and led to the creation of the Elite-15i.

Today’s power lines are plagued with RF and EMI noise. When connecting sensitive equipment to your home’s power outlet, AC noise couples into your system’s critical components. This noise masks low level signals and cripples performance. Low level content is critical because it relays the crucial harmonics and ambience in audio, as well as the depth and clarity in video. With Furman’s exclusive Linear Filtering Technology, televisions, projectors, DVD players, amplifiers, and processors, are fed by linearly-filtered AC power. This dramatically reduces noise, ensuring consistent peak operation regardless of load conditions or the time of day. For the first time, you will see and hear your theater or audio system as it should be — uncompromised.

Another critical feature is our exclusive Series Multi-Stage Protection. This virtually maintenance-free surge suppression assures the highest level of AC protection possible, without sacrificing itself when the offending surge is severe — no damaged equipment, no service calls, no down time. Our digital AC voltage meter allows precise measurement of the incoming AC line voltage, (a valuable asset when monitoring systems that are connected to today’s potentially poor power grids).

Further, our famous retractable front panel LED lamps allow easy viewing of either a rack or cabinet full of equipment, even when your theater lights are off.

The Elite-15i also features remote control capability via 12V triggering, compatible with the 12V triggering devices commonly found in power receivers and pre-amp processors. Additional products (such as a remote subwoofer) can be daisy-chained from the 12V output jack for an additional triggered unit. The 12V triggering feature may be bypassed if desired.

When employing the Elite-15i, you will notice far clearer, stunningly focused sound and visual images from your system. Video presentation will be crisp and colors true with greater gray and black scale definition, as well as noticeably improved depth and clarity. Many of the technological advances previously available only in our flagship Reference Conditioners are cornerstones of the Elite series. Now everyone can reap the benefits of unrivaled power purification and unequalled surge protection.

At the center of the Elite-15 PF i is our unique Power Factor Technology. For the first time, low-level analog, digital, and video components are not modulated or distorted via the power amplifier’s extreme AC current demands. Further, the power amplifier sees a highly filtered, extremely low-impedance supply of AC power. The Elite-15 PF i, in fact, has in excess of 3 Amps of continuous current reserve (over 45 amps peak charge) for the most extreme peak power demands. This technology enables power amplifiers and powered subwoofers to operate at peak efficiency, reaching levels of performance previously unattainable.

No longer will your amplifier’s performance be at the mercy of your home’s incoming AC power or inferior AC protection/filtering devices. The net effect is as if your power amplifier virtually doubled in power and improved immeasurably in quality.

When employing the Elite-15 PF i, you will immediately notice far clearer, stunningly focused sound and visual images from your system. Video presentation will be crisp and colors true with greater gray and black scale definition, as well as noticeably improved depth and clarity. Sonic transients will be startlingly fast with bass fundamentals that shake foundations with their weight and visceral impact. Mid and high frequencies will bloom with sweet, non-glaring ease while imaging improves dramatically, all the while remaining true to your system’s inherent virtues.
