Personalised balanced mains from Russ Andrews – the BMU1500 mkII
12 Oct 2018
Russ Andrews Accessories is introducing the latest version of its BMU1500 Balanced Mains Unit to provide a colossal 1.5kVA of clean power, individually tailored to each installation, to provide superior music and movie reproduction.
Working on the same principle as balanced audio signals - where the audio signal is split into two halves; negative and positive - the BMU1500 mkII splits the 230v mains signal into two separate 115v supplies. One is carried on the live and the other on the neutral and as each is a different polarity (negative or positive) the noise on one is cancelled out by the noise on the other. The result is a 230v power supply that is free from noise and hence provides the connected equipment with a cleaner supply.
Russ Andrews has added to its popular line of power supply upgrades with an AC version of The Supplier, bringing significant performance benefits to a range of audio components that are fitted with low voltage AC power supplies.
Reinforcing its position as the leader in hi-fi mains and power products, Russ Andrews has introduced its latest publication entitled “Power – Connect With Your Music”, to guide hi-fi enthusiasts through the principles of and reasons for good power management.
