FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- Fully balanced output
where both the neutral and line are isolated from the wall outlet. This
improves safety and blocks all the harmonics and noise from the power
grid to greatly enhance the focus, imaging, and liquidity of your
- 10 amps of total output so
that you can plug your entire system, including large amps, into the
device without worries about drawing too much current. This eliminates grounding problems, ground loops, hum and noise associated with ground issues.
- Individual switching allows you to selectively turn on or off any component from a central location.
- Completely passive
operation means there is nothing to break, no moving parts, no fans and
no noise for absolutely silent operation.
One of the biggest headaches in the hobby of high-end audio is
noise and hum. The largest contributor is having your equipment plugged
into several places, or into power strips, which have similar results.
Each place a component is plugged-in has different contact
pressures and resistances leading to ground that create small or in some
cases large ground loops that make your system hum.
Having everything plugged into a single place, like the Zen Line
Conditioner, creates a single-point ground scheme that not only
eliminates ground based hum issues, but also improves the sound of your entire system with blacker backgrounds.
Many homes are miss-wired and have the neutral and ground bonded
together mistakenly in one or more outlets that can and do create
current on the ground line causing irreconcilable hum issues. The Zen
Line Conditioner will create a perfect haven in such an environment
because it isolates the ground and neutral.
The Zen Line Conditioner features heavily shielded noise filtration on
the input IEC device to kill incoming noise and keep it from reaching
the inside of the steel cabinet where the toroidal transformer lives.
Once the power is cleaned, the transformer magnetically decouples it
and then feeds the various outputs. A single beeswax cap is used on the
secondary to multiply the noise rejection without creating any
Some people will wonder how this approach compares to a power
re-generator so it pays to know that a power re-generator is a large
amplifier. It simply plays a single 60 cycle note (sine wave) instead
of music. It is, nevertheless, an amplifier whose performance is
affected by incoming power quality just like anything else therefor it
would make sense to plug a power re-generator in the Zen Line
