Accuphase PS-1230 CLEAN POWER SUPPLY

Accuphase PS-1230 CLEAN POWER SUPPLY

Every audio component draws all of its energy from the power supply which in turn is connected to the AC power grid. The Clean Power Supply components from Accuphase are products that remove noise and impurities from the AC power line through a groundbreaking new approach, resulting in a drastic improvement of the sound and picture quality of connected audio and video equipment. Without relying on an oscillator, the reference waveform is created with further improved accuracy and is linked to the power section by a balanced connection to ensure incredibly low distortion in the output waveform. Because the PS-1230 can deliver as much as 1200 VA (1000 VA), it covers the requirements of almost any high-quality A/V system currently on the market.

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.

Audience Forte F3 PowerChord

Audience Forte F3 PowerChord

$312.00$406.00

The forte f3 powerChord is an entry level priced high performance powerChord. Over 20 years of Audience high performance powerChord DNA technology is embedded in the forte f3. The forte f3 powerChord provides end users with an extremely affordable product with unbeatable performance, far beyond its price range. The forte f3 powerChord is a high current 10 AWG design made with high purity stranded copper wire so it is flexible and user friendly. It’s geometry is a proprietary design that rejects noise while balancing energy flow for lowest eddy current resistance. The brass contacts have been cryogenically treated at the Audience cryogenic laboratory.

Audience Forte V8 Power Conditioner

$1,120.00$1,244.00

The forte V8 Power offers end users a premium AC platform at an extremely affordable price. The V8 is substantially constructed in an extruded aluminum chassis with a hardy high quality copper buss bar design. The duplexes are high quality hospital grade, each separately wired to the buss bars in STAR ground configuration with high purity 14 AWG stranded copper wire. The V8 also includes standard Audience RF filtration. The power cord connection is standard IEC. All parts of the electric circuit have been treated by cryogenics as well as a proprietary EHVP (extreme high voltage process). The V8 does not include surge or overload protection. However, the V8 can be plugged into any free outlet from any other Audience power conditioner, like one of the aR2p models, for extra noise filtration, surge and overload protection. Substantial listening evaluations were performed for every element, over an 18 month R&D period of the V8. Although, the V8 was designed to be an affordable power block, corners were not cut at the sacrifice of good sound quality. The resulting V8 product lives up to the usual standard for Audience power products of “do no harm”.  In fact, the forte V8 Power provides a musically balanced high resolution solution.

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.
