AC POWER CONDITIONERS
All your Hi-Fi components are connected to the power line along with every other electrical device in your house, and to every home and factory also using the power grid.
Power equipment on the AC line generates noise that travels back into the line where it enters your audio components. This noise is called electromagnetic interference or EMI. Light dimmers, refrigerators, and other household appliances put high-frequency junk in the AC line. Vacuum cleaners and electrical power tools are a major source of power-line noise because the fibres in the motors' brushes are continually making and breaking contact. The Line is also polluted by AM radio stations; power lines act as antennae, superimposing the AM signal over the 50/60Hz line.

All of these problems can be controlled with a well-designed AC power-line conditioner. They provide the optimum AC environment for your components so that they may realise their full potential. The sonic benefits of a good line conditioner include a "blacker" background, with less low-level grunge and noise. The treble often becomes sweeter, less grainy and more extended.

If you haven't tried a power-line conditioner, you may not have heard your system at its best.

AC POWER CABLES
Power cables have become very popular recently as more and more listeners discover their benefits.
The noise problems mentioned above can be reduced with careful AC cable design. Magnetic interaction and coupling between the conductors is reduced with dedicated audio power cables, resulting in better transfer of AC to the audio component.

Naim Power-Line Lite Mains Power Cable
Naim Power-Line Lite Mains Power Cable
Every link in the audio chain is important, and Naim are always looking at ways to improve each one. Power-Line Lite has been developed alongside the new Uniti range by Naim's specialist engineers to do just that. It uses the expertise from the original Power-Line mains cable to create a superior plug, paired with the mains cable Naim have trusted in their listening tests for over 15 years.

Low-Z Power | Noise-Dissipation System

Redefining the Science of Power Conditioning

Niagara 1000 brings the benefits of highly optimized power management to far more music lovers.

Designed by Garth Powell, the Niagara 1000 embodies the very same design philosophy and incorporates the same patented technology found in its larger sibling, the Niagara 7000, but packs it into a smaller, sleeker enclosure—at a fraction of the price. Much like the Niagara 7000, the Niagara 1000 uses ultra-low resistance solid-core wiring optimized for low-noise directionality, capacitor forming technologies that vastly improve linearity and minimize distortion, and low impedance AC inlet and outlet contacts with heavy silver plating over high-purity Beryllium Copper for superior noise dissipation. Similarly, Niagara 1000 features non-sacrificial surge protection, Zero Ground-Contamination Technology, and over-voltage shutdown, ensuring that your customers’ A/V systems are thoroughly protected from AC surges and spikes. While the Niagara 1000 lacks the 7000’s sophisticated Transient Power Correction and Dielectric-Biased AC Isolation Transformers, it does employ their patented Ground-Noise Dissipation System and Ultra-Linear Noise-Dissipation Technology. And, whereas the Niagara 7000 has 12 AC outlets, the Niagara 1000 fits six high-performance outlets into its sleek chassis. In addition, input current maximum capacity—20 amps RMS in the Niagara 7000—is 15 amps RMS in the 1000. Of course, the biggest differences between the 7000 and 1000 are also the most obvious: size, shape, and weight. The Niagara 7000 can be rack-mounted and measures 15.5” W x 5.24” H x 17.2” D and weighs an impressive 81lbs. The Niagara1000, however, is designed to be placed on a floor or atop a rack, beside or behind a hi-fi system, measures 4.75” W x 4.0” H x 20.0” D, and weighs a much more manageable 5.5lbs. Perhaps most important, at $995 US, Niagara 1000 brings the benefits of highly optimized power management to far more music lovers.

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 rendered their utilities’ AC power a somewhat antiquated technology.

audioquest Niagara 7000 - Low-Z Power | Noise-Dissipation System
AudioQuest is proud to introduce their Niagara 7000 Low-Z Power Noise-Dissipation System, a complete rethinking of AC power filtration, designed by one of the field’s foremost experts, Garth Powell. As with every AQ product before, and more recently the DragonFly USB DAC and NightHawk headphones, they would not have entered this field if they didn’t think they had something special and significant to offer. In Niagara 7000, they believe they’ve created an product that revolutionizes the art and science of AC power—a product that will inspire audio/video enthusiasts and help to create an even more immersive, emotionally compelling experience. In designing Niagara 7000, they aimed to successfully address problems that prevent today’s audio/video components from achieving their potential. Due to 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, a complete rethinking of AC power technology is needed to provide A/V systems with the power required to fulfill their potential. Further, today’s power amplifiers are being taxed for instantaneous peak-current demand, even when they’re driven at modest volumes.

Gamut Reference Power Cables
How important is a power cable? In a word, it’s fundamental. This is where your audio system begins its journey. The quality of the power that enters your system at this point can make or break its ultimate performance. So it’s worth getting it right, from the start.

The electrical current that your system draws through the power cable is dictated by the musical signal. So, that electrical current needs to be every bit as nimble and dynamic as the musical signal, otherwise the result will be rather like an orchestra that can’t quite keep up with its conductor.

LANRover is like the Power Plant of digital audio—cleaning, isolating, regenerating and newly formatting USB musical data, a process that dramatically improves audio performance with any DAC. In addition to improving USB audio, LANRover can physically separate your computer or music server from the sound system. USB audio signals, which rapidly degrade over distance, can now be sent from any room in your home to any other without loss of performance. In fact, LANRover significantly improves performance of any USB source for any musical signal, regardless of distance.

No matter how perfect an AC power source, distortion is added within any AC cable, especially within a stranded cable. Even the most sophisticated filters and power supplies cannot eliminate this cable-induced distortion.

SOLID PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER+ (PSC+) CONDUCTORS: NRG-10 uses extremely high-purity Perfect-Surface Copper+ conductors. All conductors are solid, which prevents strand interaction, a major source of distortion. Surface quality is critical because a conductor can be considered a rail-guide for both the electric fields within a conductor, and for the magnetic fields outside the conductor. The astonishingly smooth and pure PSC+ eliminates harshness and greatly increases clarity compared to OFHC, OCC, 8N and other coppers. The superior purity of PSC+ further minimizes distortion caused by grain boundaries, which exist within any metal conductor.

SOLID LONG-GRAIN COPPER (LGC) CONDUCTORS: Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion. Evergreen’s solid Long-Grain Copper allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper. OFHC is a general metal industry specification regarding “loss” without any concern for distortion. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material, less impurities, less grain boundaries, and definitively better performance.
