FEATURES of the Flow 28 AC Filter:
The audio you hear from your home entertainment system is essentially the incoming electricity itself, and the typically violent storms riding the AC line and its ground is very detrimental to the performance of your components.
Nobody truly enjoys the sound of high-frequency trash noise. But in many cases, listeners may not know just how noisy their audio/video systems are—until all that EMI and RFI is removed and the music suddenly flows through like never before. In most cases that would require some sort of power filter that removes the noise—and perhaps, unfortunately, some of the high frequencies as well.
The Furutech Flow-28 Inline Power Filter effective removes all of that high-frequency noise from the mains power before it reaches your components—all without robbing your system of the high frequencies that are responsible for that airy, 3-D sound that’s so natural and lifelike. Dynamic contrasts, you’ll discover, are unaffected as well. Just stick the Flow-28 between power cords and components, or power cords and power distributors, and eliminate all radiated AC noise from your system.
Furutech accomplishes this feat through meticulous engineering, and by constantly examining each part of the power signal. This resulted in the following innovations:
* Two active materials, nano-sized ceramic particles and powdered carbon, are combined inside a nylon and fiberglass shell to create an effectively damped body—both mechanically and electrically.
* 24K gold-plated Alpha non-magnetic connectors and conductors are used throughout to both carry the signal and shield for protection against radiated noise.
* A parallel circuit with an in-line coil and capacitor that significantly reduces noise by 8dB at 100 KHz, 14 dB at 500KHz and 30 dB at 10MHz.
* High-grade PE insulation that helps to reduce capacitance.
* Patented Floating Field Damper which acts as a very effective earth/ground jumper system.
•The cover of the filtering unit combines two “active” materials: Nano-sized ceramic particles and powdered carbon. Nylon and fiberglass are incorporated as well forming an extremely effective, mechanically and electrically damped body.
