MIT Cables Matrix AC-2 REV
What’s in the box?
Each of the network boxes operates like a miniature Z-Stabilizer. It contains a patented Filter Pole system that works in Parallel (not series) with the AC, so it literally cannot limit current, but is very effective at cancelling noise. At the same time, these circuits have Power Factor Correction. Uncorrected Power Factor limits the amount of current actually available at the AC input of your components, and, unfortunately, is a problem in most residential AC circuits You get noise-free sound from a wide-open black background, and your system gets more usable current.
What are Filterpoles?
In comparison to Poles of Attenuation (Referenced in The Impedance Domain), a properly-built AC filter will not only attenuate unwanted noise on the AC power line, but it will also optimize the power factor. Power Factor is a (dimensionless) number between 0 and 1. When power factor is equal to 0, the energy flow is entirely reactive, and stored energy in the load returns to the source on each cycle. When the power factor is 1, all the energy supplied by the source is consumed by the load and nothing is reflected back to the source. MIT was awarded a patent on this technology regarding audio in July 13, 1993: number 5,227,962.
The best way to attenuate unwanted noise is to create a very low impedance (a zero of impedance across the load which acts as an attenuation pole to the noise) surrounding the frequency (or frequencies) of the undesirable noise. In the case of audio, that would be at any frequency other than the power line frequency. This is best accomplished by placing a tuned circuit in parallel, around the load. MIT was awarded this patent in November 9, 1993: number 5,260,862.
What is E.M.?
EM stands for Energy Management, and is Bruce Brisson’s newest development in technology surrounding the Power Products field. Put simply, E.M. allows energy to be more available consistently over the wide range of audio frequencies. This ensures that power will also be consistent over a wider range of frequencies, when the energy is converted to power at the load.
