The main reason we invest in a E&T audio rack is to allow the music to take us as near as possible to the original event, we carefully choose the CD player we prefer most – connect it to the amplifier of our choice and finally to the speakers. We know every component is a valuable link in the chain, if one of those is not performing at the same level as the rest of the chain – we have a problem.
Probably the most overlooked link is definitely the power supply – the source of all of the energy for the system. The mains power source is the beginning of the chain, and one which needs more scrutiny and attention if we are to realise the utmost potential from your Hi-Fi system.
In the event you zoomed in to check out the incoming mains supply you will not see that super smooth sine wave that people are taught about in science in school, you would see the consequence of modern life, the sine wave is distorted and polluted by countless appliances for the home, industrial manufacturing companies causing radio frequency interference and distortion in the main supply itself.
The national grid network has never been conceived with the audiophile or Topping DAC in mind, therefore little attention is paid to degradation and noise that could have a dramatic effect upon our home systems. This situation is going to get much worse – already most laptop computers and many other devices use switch mode power supplies ( a cheaper and smaller choice to using transformer based PSU’s) – but the downside is electrical noise, lots of it!
Home data networks making use of the mains wiring as a conduit from room to room, Bluetooth phones, computer keyboards, home Wi-Fi networks most of these cause masses of RF borne interference along with mains borne problems.
These can be spotted by a simple test….Does your computer sound better late into the evening or morning hours? If the answer is yes perhaps you are being bombarded with interference from the own equipment being used elsewhere in the house – or by your friends down the road. Including the Hi-Fi and Home cinema components themselves cause significant levels of electrical noise which can be passed from a single component to its neighbour, therefore the need to decrease and also eliminate cross contamination is important.
The Solution:- You have to remove mains borne interference, by fitting a highly designed filter, mains cable or even a regenerator, an electrical block allowing you to effectively isolate each device through the next. we have been not referring to slight very subtle differences here. Our company is speaking about very dramatic improvements in system performance, you having the ability to enjoy your computer at anytime night or day, improved timing, tighter bass lines, higher resolution and more importantly being able to get more associated with the songs. Manufacturers including Isol8 are experts in form of everything mains related.
Usually the price for this step up in performance is under a new CD player, amplifier or pair of speakers. Generally you will find that lots of the available HDMI Cable Reviews do not explain the value of the usages in differing applications of the standard home used HDMI interface. It is extremely useful to understand the importance of the numerous HDMI specifications, whereby, a Cat 1 cable is capable of sending a sound visual signal to accomplish maximum results on the 720p or 1080i TV/LCD screen as well as a Cat 2 HDMI Cable is capable of delivering an audio visual signal to achieve greatest results on 720p, 1080i, 1080p & the brand new 1600p TV/LCD devices. The typical specifications for Shanling audio are a number which range from 1. to 1.4 which represents the brand new HDMI specification and interface versions being eeogzu available right now, 1.4 being the latest DHMI interface specification. However, don’t be worried about these numbers just like any new HDMI equipped devices are backwards compatible for cabling purposes.
It is important that you decide on the minimum duration of cable for connecting your equipment and having an HDMI interconnect that has top manufacture quality. To experience the most effective sound and video quality out of your equipment a digital cabling plays a big part.
