Recently commissioned for a client who wanted a silver plated mains block with silver plated cable attached, we have produced what we consider to be one of the best sounding mains blocks on the market today. The specification is hard to better and the sound quality is instantly recognizeable. We are confident you will be amazed at the results of installing this in your system.
A 4, 6 or 8 gang mains block with all internal rails silver plated by a UK plater with 50 years experience in this field. The plating is 15 microns thick and silver is the best conductor known to man, proven by simple physics. Our white paper on the subject can be downloaded here, conductivity of metals used in hifi.
We plate the internal rails and solder the silver plated mains cable direct to the internal rails using Oyaide silver solder. Everything possible is done to ensure the best performing mains block is produced. The cable usues 3.8mm thick conductors and there is no filtering or surge protection in the block as we believe that this has a detrimental effect on sound quality. We also dis-able the light and on-off switch in the pursuit of excellenece. Finally the mains plug we use is again silver plated and fitted with an AMR Audio grade 13 amp fuse.
The cable is 1.5 metres long as standard, longer lengths can be added on request. We now use a hybrid silver/copper UP-OCC cable on the mains block, the sound is better than the previous version and the price remains the same.
