"AudioQuest's Niagara 1000 not only cleaned up the power, it did everything that is the opposite of killing the boogie. It took me two seconds to recognize this, two songs to confirm it, and two hours before I could stop listening and try to describe...Read more these effects."

Description


AudioQuest Niagara 1000 Low-Z Power/Noise-Dissipation System

The science of AC power is not a simple one; it demands focus, and the devil is in the details. In fact, the mammoth increase in airborne and AC-line-transmitted radio signals, combined with overtaxed utility lines and the ever-increasing demands from high-definition audio/video components, has rendered our utilities' AC power an antiquated technology.

Designed by Garth Powell, the Niagara 1000 Low-Z Power/Noise-Dissipation System embodies the very same design philosophy and incorporates the same patented technology found in its larger sibling, the Niagara 7000, but packs it into a smaller, sleeker enclosure - at a fraction of the price.

The Niagara 1000 uses ultra-low resistance solid-core wiring optimized for low-noise directionality, capacitor forming technologies that vastly improve linearity and minimize distortion, and low impedance AC inlet and outlet contacts with heavy silver plating over high-purity Beryllium Copper for superior noise dissipation. Niagara 1000 features AudioQuest's non-sacrificial surge protection, Zero Ground-Contamination Technology, and over-voltage shutdown, ensuring that your A/V system is thoroughly protected from AC surges and spikes.

While the Niagara 1000 lacks the 7000's sophisticated Transient Power Correction and Dielectric-Biased AC Isolation Transformers, it does employ our patented Ground-Noise Dissipation System and Ultra-Linear Noise-Dissipation Technology. And, whereas the Niagara 7000 has 12 AC outlets, the Niagara 1000 fits six high-performance outlets into its sleek chassis. In addition, input current maximum capacity—20 amps RMS in the Niagara 7000—is 15 amps RMS in the 1000.

Niagara 1000


Of course, the biggest differences between the 7000 and 1000 are also the most obvious: size, shape, and weight. The Niagara 7000 can be rack-mounted and measures 15.5” W x 5.24” H x 17.2” D and weighs an impressive 81lbs. The Niagara1000, however, is designed to be placed on a floor or atop a rack, beside or behind a hi-fi system, measures 4.75” W x 4.0” H x 20.0” D, and weighs a much more manageable 5.5lbs.

The Niagara 1000 is manufactured with four rubber feet for safe, secure placement on any table, cabinet, shelf, or floor. The Niagara 1000’s design obviates the need for compliant or high-Q isolation feet. Placement or proximity to other components is not critical, and, under standard use, the Niagara 1000 does not produce any heat.

Perhaps most important, at £995, Niagara 1000 brings the benefits of highly optimized power management to far more music lovers.

Features

  • 6 Low-Z (low impedance) NRG Series AC power inlets and outlets: 1 high-current ground-noise dissipated and 5 ultra-linear filtered/ground noise dissipated
  • Ultra-linear AudioQuest AC RF filtering capacitors
  • Patented Ground Noise-Dissipation System with 3 banks of direction-controlled ground noise dissipation, and Zero Ground-Contamination Technology that prevents the noise or surge energy present on AC Line or Neutral from connecting to the AC Ground
  • Ultra-linear noise-dissipation technology: More than 18 octaves of AC differential filtering with linear response, optimized for varying line and load impedance
  • Non-sacrificial surge protection: Withstands multiple AC surges and spikes up to 6000V/3000A
  • Over-Voltage Shutdown with Automatic Reset
  • Non-Sacrificial Surge Suppression: Accepts multiple transient power surges and spikes up to 6000V or 3000A (the maximum that can make it through a home or office electrical panel). Damage from electrical storms or power-line interruptions is virtually impossible; set it and forget it.
  • Low-Z (low impedance) NRG Series AC Power Inlets and Outlets
  • Dimensions: 4.75 X 4.00 X 20.00
  • Weight: 5.5 lbs
