Arriving Next Week – Audioquest Niagara 1000
Posted on February 6th, 2016
Designed by Garth Powell, the Niagara 1000 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.
Much like the Niagara 7000, 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. Similarly, Niagara 1000 features our non-sacrificial surge protection, Zero Ground-Contamination Technology, and over-voltage shutdown, ensuring that your A/V systems are thoroughly protected from AC surges and spikes.
The Niagara 1000 employs a patented Ground-Noise Dissipation System and Ultra-Linear Noise-Dissipation Technology. The 1000 fits six high-performance outlets into its sleek chassis and has a 15 amp RMS capacity.
The Niagara 1000 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 5.5lbs.
