The WHITE DWARF noise filter (single outlet)
The WHITE DWARF is a small but sophisticated single outlet noise filter specially intended for (low power) A/V equipment with a current consumption of up to 2 Amperes (approximately 460 Watts).
Containing not less than 6 functional filtering stages between input and output, The WHITE DWARF effectively acts as a firewall between the raw noise ridden mains power from your AC outlets and your equipment. It cuts mains noise and provides high frequency isolation from mains, thus strongly reducing noise currents running along your power cabling and interconnects.
Ultimate performance is delivered by a highly advanced and reliable circuit design which is resonance-free and adds our unique Dynamic Noise Absorption (DNA) concept in combination with a special balun filter.
The special features in some more detail:
Most passive filters have built-in electrical resonances which can even amplify and concentrate power line noise. As such more easily reaching into your equipment, these resonances can change sound character and background.
The WHITE DWARF on the other hand prevents and even fights both internal and external resonances, thus keeping the power line dead quiet.
- Dynamic Noise Absorption (DNA):
DNA tracks the mains voltage waveform and irons out pulses and other noise-like irregularities by eating away their energy and peacefully digesting it into inaudible heat.
- Balun filter:
The balun filter is a specific type of coil that blocks any noise common to both power lines from propagating between the "dirty" mains and your equipment. Due to its special design, this balun works over a very wide frequency range while letting AC power pass to your equipment without any type of dynamic restrictions.
Using a WHITE DWARF in front of each device in your A/V setup provides markedly improved transparency, definition, detail and dynamics. An advance in sound and video quality hard to switch back from once you are used to it.
The WHITE DWARF furthermore forms an excellent combination with - and extension to - our heavier The BLACK HOLE four outlet mains filter and our The MAINSSTREAM and MAINSSERVER Hybrid power cables.
