AudioPrism ACFX IEC MkII Power Line Filter
Audioprism took the already impressive ACFX power line filter and recently improved it with the new ACFX MK2! The unit now features two filters (front and back) that allow the user to modulate the slopes of the ACFX effect. This new configuration allows the ACFX to blend seamlessly with your system and facilitates fine tuning the amount of power line filtering exactly to your environment!
The AudioPrism ACFX Power-Line Filter improves the performance of high quality audio and video systems by reducing or eliminating the effects of electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio-frequency interference (RFI) on AC power supplies. At the same time, it isolates other equipment from the power supply of the amplifier or other device plugged into the filter, which reduces audio modulation distortion (AMD) and crosstalk between audio and video components.
Unlike many power line filters which limit current, the high current capacity ACFX allows an amplifier to perform at maximum dynamic range. An audio amplifier plugged into an ACFX has a subjectively cleaner sound than the same amplifier connected directly to unfiltered AC power. Bass definition is improved, midrange sound is clearer, and high frequencies are smoother and less irritating.
All power supplies add noise to AC lines, in the form of distortion generated by diodes alternating at the 60 Hz line frequency. Large filter capacitors used in high-powered amplifiers draw high charging currents, which can produce odd order harmonic distortion. As a result, most "High End" equipment generates more line noise than less costly consumer-grade equipment. Power conditioning through the ACFX eliminates this form of distortion by electrically isolating your amplifier from other components.
The ACFX Power-Line Filter is a product of
unprecedented utility, critical performance and does exactly what it is supposed to do-make your system sound better!
