QBASE Power Distribution
The essence of the QBASE concept is a straight-line AC
distribution path, combined with a star-earthed topology for
connection to a clean ground. By eliminating any form of in-line
filtering or active circuitry they maintain the lowest possible AC supply
impedance, while a tiny lift in the earth impedance of all but one of
the output sockets routes the signal grounds directly to the centre of
the star and the clean earth terminal. Clearly identified on the
casework, this Primary Earth socket is at the centre of your system's
performance, literally and metaphorically. It defines both the order in
which you connect your components and also, their listening priority in
your musical enjoyment, allowing you to further optimize the performance
of your primary sources.
The sockets themselves are mounted on a solidly constructed aluminum
extrusion with machined end-caps that deliver a reassuring sense of
substance. But the casework has far greater significance than that, the
metal pieces and internal PCB (deliberately preferred to hard-wiring)
constituting a single, mechanically tuned construction, designed
specifically to enhance performance. Compare the musical performance of
the QBASE to the competition and you'll hear just how effective this is.
QBASE units are available in three different models. US and European
versions are available in four and eight output configurations, while
the dimensions of the UK 13A socket mean that it is only available as a
six-way unit. The perfect starting point in the construction of a
high-quality, modular AC supply for your system, the compact dimensions
of the QBASE mean that it can be easily combined with one or more Qv or
Qx power purifiers as funds allow, while its slim profile makes it ideal
for tucking away behind a rack or mounting on the wall.
