What to expect?

 

An improvement in dynamics, a much better sound image and a lower hum level. The sound character of your audio system remains, fortunately.

 

By using the Mains Multiplier 8 with integrated Pulse Protector your equipment has less trouble with electrical failures induced by distortion on your power network and it is better protected against damage through lightning impact nearby. A guarantee that lightning impacts will not damage your devices can not be given because the energy-content is too high.

Where to use?

 

Wherever you need to connect a maximum of 8 devices to the mains, the Mains Multiplier 8 is the best choice. Of course you will have to use high performance power cords, else the multiplier will not perform at its best. It's a combination of factors; only if you use the multiplier in combination with high performance power cords you will achieve the maximum results for your audio system.

 

It is possible to use a Mains Multiplier 8 as an ordinary multiple socket without high performance power cords, but this will not give you optimal results. Our advice is to upgrade to our Current Conductor cables, the result will be rewarding.

Clever phase indicator

The Mains Multiplier 8 has a very clever way to indicate that it is connected to the mains supply the right way. Two LEDs will show you if the Mains Multiplier 8 has an input voltage, if earth connection is present and if the mains supply's phase is connected properly.

 

When the Mains Multiplier 8 is connected the right way, you will see two green lights. If one light is off or one light is red, something is wrong with your connection. Have a look at the image for an explanation of the different indications.

Working principle

 

Our Mains Multipliers are not just regular multiple sockets but more works of art made with a precision CNC machine that shapes the forms out of POM-C. This high quality synthetic material combines superior electric isolation with low vibration properties. The Multipliers also have shock absorbing feet to suppress mechanical vibrations.

 

Wiring for phase, neutral and earth is connected by a star principle; every outlet has its own wiring towards the inlet. Peaks in the current or interference signals that appear on the contacts of one socket will have less effect on the other sockets.

 

Just behind the IEC input connector a Pulse Protector is integrated. This prevents peaks and pulses to reach your equipment. For more information, read about the Pulse Protector elsewhere on this website.

 

Four outputs are fitted with high frequency (HF) filters which contribute to a natural sound and detailed image. These filtered outlets can be used to connect analogue and digital audio equipment.

 

The type of the eight schuko sockets is chosen because of the high contact pressure, which is obvious when putting in or pulling out a power plug. More contact pressure and an excellent contact surface do create a low resistance value which is essential for great power distribution. The results speak for themselves; optical as well as electrical.

IEC 60320 C13
C13 input

The Mains Multiplier 8 is supplied without a power cord. It will work with every power cord with an IEC plug C13, as found on most audio equipment. For optimal performance we suggest to use our Current Conductor L.
