Shunt Noise Suppressor Plug

150,00 Prices include 21% VAT

The SNS PLUG is a unique product on the market. In a very simple and affordable way, a cleaner and thus better mains power is provided for your A/V set. All components benefits from this. The result is a clearly improved reproduction in all aspects. Plug and Play, it can't be easier. We are surrounded by electrical appliances more and more. Computers, peripheral equipment, wireless telephones, chargers, multiple TV sets, games consoles, microwave ovens, dishwashers etc. are common in most modern houses. All these appliances pollute the mains with noise and distortion. This pollution has a very strong - and highly underestimated - negative effect on the sound and picture quality of any audio/video system. The SNS PLUG is the most simple and effective way to reduce mains pollution. It has been one of our most successful products for years with thousands of satisfied customers.

- Shunt filter, no dynamic restriction possible
- Super fast reaction speed covering an ultra-wide frequency range, up to almost 1 Gigahertz/cycles
- Lowers the shunt AC line impedance
- 7 stages provide the best performance •Over voltage and surge protector
- Potted in resin to prevent microphonic effects
- Can be combined without any problem with all other audio mains related products
- Easy 'plug and play' installation

There are two kinds of filtering, serial and parallel (shunt) filtering:


Serial filtering
With serial filtering a coil is added in series with the consumer. The frequency of the mains will almost completely get through, because the impedance (alternating current resistance) of the coil is here relatively low. As the frequency rises (distortion spectra) the impedance of the coil will increase and as a result it will become less permeable for distortions. A less positive property of serial filters is that there will always be a loss caused by the impedance of the coil - at 50 Hz - and the resistance of the coil wire. The POWER SOURCE is a serial filter but because of its unique design, the disadvantage mentioned above is negligible.

Parallel filtering
This is based on the principle that the parallel impedance will become lower when the frequency increases. The parallel filter will be ‘seen’ by mains distortion as a short-circuit, so it will be reflected to the source. Because the SNS PLUG is a parallel filter, the main current to your equipment doesn't flow through the filter, thus preventing loss of dynamics. Other advantages are the simple construction (low production costs) and a high flexibility. A disadvantage of parallel filtering is that it is less efficient than serial filtering.

Where to install?
The SNS PLUG can be plugged into any free power socket. Some effective places are:
1) As close as possible to the consumer unit (the source),
2) Into the distribution block (or line conditioner) of the A/V set
3) Next to the source of the distortion, e.g. light dimmer, fluorescent lightning, transformer (e.g. halogen light), refrigerator, computer, heating-installation, etc.
