The PowerStation uses iFi’s Active Noise Cancelation II to ACTIVELY eliminates noise across the frequency range, even across the lower frequencies.
Each outlet has added passive filters to also eradicate noise from the very highest frequencies.
Each outlet is independently isolated in its own chamber to prevent cross-contamination, with the addition of vibration-damping EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate).
The PowerStation has inbuilt earth/ground and polarity detection.
No earth/ground can lead to annoying buzzes and hums – the scourge of audio.
We’ve added a 4mm banana socket to the PowerStation so a grounding cable can be used to create a ground/earth when one isn’t present.
Bingo, the sound is gone.
And the PowerStation is smart. The supplementary ground/earth connection will NOT introduce a ground loop EVEN if the system is already earthed.
More than one earth would also create a ground loop leading to more buzzing and humming and we don’t want that.
Polarity detection is vital if you don’t want to hamper the quality of your audio mains. With the PowerStation, this is built-in.
And never fear, max. 30,000A @ 1,000V/10uS surge protection is also here. If it detects a power surge or a mains short, the PowerStation will shut down, protecting your downstream equipment from peril.
