Direct Current Blocker
The DC Block has been designed to improve the quality of AC electricity that feeds our audio and AV systems.
Mains electricity has a fundamental influence on the audio signal as it passes through a system, from source to amp to speakers. The mains supply in a typical dwelling is subject to interference induced by a range of issues, causing the AC waveform to distort before it reaches each component. This creates noise in the audio signal, which degrades sound quality – a situation that continues to worsen as the electrical devices we use in our homes proliferate.
This combination of technologies ensures that the DC Block does more than solve the problem of transformer saturation caused by DC on the mains; it also helps to unlock the sonic potential of any audio component to which it is connected. The noise floor drops and the sound gains greater focus, with reduced grain, improved clarity, better-defined bass, and ‘airier’ treble.
