Nordost QBase QB8 Power Distributor
Perfection in Power Distribution
At the heart of any high quality AC power supply is solid grounding - and star-earthed topology is the best way to achieve that. Because you are literally listening to the noise of your power supply, this step is crucially important in quality music reproduction.
How does it work ...?
The concept of Q Base QB8 is to distribute AC power in the most advantageous way possible. The essence of this 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 we 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 aluminium extrusion with machined end-caps that deliver a reassuring sense of substance.
In most applications the QBase QB8 will significantly drop the noise floor of high quality sound equipment. This means that you can hear music the way your high quality equipment was meant to be heard. Nordost have done demonstration after demonstration leaving people absolutely amazed at the performance they have been missing out on.
Compare the musical performance of the QBASE QB8 to the competition and you'll hear just how effective this is.
