  • Nordost QK1 AC Enhance

    The QKOIL QK1 AC Enhancer uses a load resonating coil (LRC) to generate a passive electronic field that has a beneficial sonic effect on the AC current.

    Like the QV2, The QKOIL provides a vital solution to the issues of AC quality and audio/video performance, but unlike the QVIBE, the new QK1 achieves this by using an LRC furnished with Nordost’s patented Micro Mono-Filament technology. Using our MMF technology in a loading application prevents time delay and distortion of the transmitted signal, making the AC current that much closer to the desired “distortionless condition”. The Sensory results: an improvement in the overtones and pacing of the music as well as a greater sharpness, depth and focus of visual qualities.

    The QKOIL is the entry level product in the QRT range, a family of modular, non-intrusive innovations that deliver measurable sonic enhancements and provide power in the purist way. Like other QRT products, the benefits are cumulative and QK1s are even more impressive when applied collectively. It can be used as a “stand alone” product or to complement a full QRT system with QBASE-Mark II, QX4, QX2 and especially QV2 units..

    The QK1 is housed in a mechanically tuned carbon-fiber body and equipped with either a US (NEMA) or EU (Schuko) connector. It is compatible with voltages from 110V to 240V, and can be used with an AUS or UK adaptor if required.  Plug the QKOIL into any spare socket on your system’s AC Line and experience first-hand the surprising yet indisputable effect it will have on you’re A/V components.

    • Generates a passive electronic field
    • Allows for greater musicality and improves tonal balance
    • Increases clarity of imaging, including sharpness, depth and focus
    • Lowers the noise floor
    • Load resonating coil using patented Micro Mono-Filament technology
    • Mechanically tuned carbon-fiber body

  • Nordost QV2 SC Line Harmonizer

    Qv2 AC LINE HARMONIZER

    This Nordost gadget does amazing things to a sound system. 

    Plug it in to any free power point on the same circuit as your system and let it work its magic. 

    It seems to me to take a minute or two to take effect and so it can be a little hard to notice the improvement at first. Then unplug it and suddenly background noise enters your system. 

    An early adopter of this product and one of CAV's most respected customers tells me that he noticed quite an improvement on his TV too. More vivid colours and clarity of picture. 

    A great device and very well priced for what it does. 

    The QVIBE, Qv2 is an AC Line Harmonizer that is designed to enhance the musical performance and picture quality of any audio or video system, delivering readily demonstrable benefits at an incredibly affordable price. It can be used as a “stand alone” product or to complement a full QRT system including QBASE-Mark II, Qx4, Qx2 and Qk1 units. The Qv2 works directly on the AC line, introducing a carefully calculated range of pulsed frequencies, clocked from the original 50 or 60Hz waveform. The result is a drop in noise floor, with a commensurate increase in image depth, dimensionality and presence, significantly increasing the realism of both musical and visual performance.

    Like other QRT products, the benefits are cumulative and Qv2s are even more impressive when used en masse. The compact, “plug-top” construction of the Qv2’s mechanically tuned housing allows it to be inserted into any free socket on your system’s AC line – although adding directly to a QBASE-Mark II maximizes the benefits.

    Qv2 units are available in either US (NEMA) or EU (Schuko) configurations, and compatible with 50/60Hz 100 – 240V supplies. However, standard adaptors can be used to employ the Qv2 in other markets. The Qv2 is housed in a mechanically tuned carbon fiber and has high quality gold plated connection pins. It is built entirely in the USA and carries a two-year warranty.

    • Works directly on the AC line, actively introducing a precise range of pulsed frequencies
    • Increases the depth and realism of the musical performance.
    • Lower perceived background noise.
    • Deeper, more dimensional and more vibrant picture on AV systems.
    • Mechanically tuned carbon-fiber body
    • Gold-plated NEMA or Schuko connector

  • IsoTek Premier Bundle...3 Premier power cables with any conditioner or power board, 15% off

    Clean power that can filter out the ever increasing invisible frequencies in our urban environment is a game changer for HiFi and becoming more and more important. Power cables themselves can act like antenna that pick up all sorts of signals in the home feeding them into your HiFi system. Things like WiFi, Bluetooth as well as our more traditional notion of radio frequencies can all be picked up by a power cable and amplified through our HiFi. Good quality, highly insulated power cables stop those frequencies affecting the detail and precision in your HiFi.

    Then there's devices that sit on the same electrical circuit of our house that cause more unwanted noise in our systems. Things like cheap or faulty fridges and LED lights are major culprits. Having a filtering powerboard or going all out with a conditioner will help stop those nasties making it into the system.

    Get yourself a starter pack with 3 power cables and any of the powerboards or conditioners in the Isotek range for 15% off.

    Price listed is for the Premier bundle with an Isotek Gemini 2-way conditioning power board. Select the drop down box for other options.

  • Isol-8 Powerline Axis (5 way DC Blocking Power board) Made in the UK

    The PowerLine Axis provides an innovative cure to the problem of DC on the mains supply. In theory the mains waveform should be pure AC: a perfect, symmetrical sine wave. In practice the waveform can arrive at the end user clipped, distorted and asymmetrical with a significant DC voltage component. The AC transformers commonly found in equipment power supplies cannot, by nature, tolerate significant DC without being compromised. The PowerLine Axis has five high quality outlets served by a network that re-centres the voltage axis of the mains waveform. This eliminates any DC voltage on the mains power supply, suppressing mechanical hum and liberating performance. Surge protection provides peace of mind too.

  • Isol-8 Powerline Ultra (6 way Transmodal Filter) Made in the UK

    The PowerLine Ultra is fully power conditioned, surge protected, and optimised for audio. 2 Direct Connection outlets are provided, filtered by a high current shunt filter, and is suitable for loads such as amplifiers. The remaining outputs are for source components and benefit from ISOL-8s Transmodal filter technology. Noise in mains wiring can be transmitted and induced in many ways, some are easier to deal with than others. As a result, many power conditioners are not completely effective. ISOL-8s Transmodal filters effectively attenuate all modes of transmitted and induced mains noise, without dumping it to ground, so you can be sure that your system benefits from the cleanest possible power.

  • Naim FlatCap XS Power Supply

    Naim is one of those iconic british brands that has helped defined a generation of english HiFi. Their sound has always been clear and devastatingly musical. A crucial aspect of their philosophy and how they achieve this is with their external power supplies. 

    A separate power supply works to decrease the noise floor thereby increasing what you hear from the musical performance. But it's not simply more detail that you hear. Getting rid of that extra noise or interferance means that the tonal balance of an amplifier or source is heard more in the way it was intended. It can produce a more rounded effect on the treble getting rid of the annoying brittleness we hear. To many listeners this gives components more 'warmth'.

  • Nordost QB8 MK2

    QBASE AC DISTRIBUTION

    The essence of the QBASE-Mark II concept is a straight-line AC distribution path, combined with star-earthed topology for connection to a clean ground. By eliminating any form of in-line filtering or active circuitry we maintain the lowest possible AC supply impedance, while a tiny lift in the earth impedance of all but one of the output sockets routes the signal grounds directly to the center of the star and the clean earth terminal. Clearly identified on the casework, this Primary Earth socket is at the center of your system’s performance, literally and metaphorically. It defines both the order in which you connect your components and also, their listening priority in your musical enjoyment, allowing you to further optimize the performance of your primary sources.

    The sockets themselves are mounted on a customized frame plate and solidly constructed aluminum extrusion with machined end-caps that deliver a reassuring sense of substance. But the casework has far greater significance than that, the metal pieces and internal PCB (deliberately preferred to hard-wiring) constituting a single, mechanically tuned construction, designed specifically to enhance performance. Compare the musical performance of the QBASE-Mark II to the competition and you’ll hear just how effective this is. 

    QBASE-Mark II units are available in four different models. US, European and Australian versions are available in four and eight output configurations, while the dimensions of the UK 13A socket mean that it is only available as a six-way unit. Each unit now includes a dedicated fuse, providing overcurrent protection of the source circuit to prevent overheating and system damage. A QBASE-Mark II unit is the perfect starting point in the construction of a high-quality, modular AC supply for your system. Its compact dimensions mean that it can be easily combined with one or more Qx power purifiers and outfitted with Qv2 AC Line Harmonizers and Qk1 AC Enhancers as funds allow, while its slim profile makes it ideal for tucking away behind a rack or mounting on the wall.

    The QB8 Mark II is also available in a 20 Amp (US) / 16 Amp (EU, AUS) version that uses heavier gauge internal wiring in addition to being capable of handling more current.

  • Isotek Evo3 Aquarius

    The IsoTek EVO3 Aquarius is an innovative rack width power conditioner (cleaner) that can dramatically upgrade a full system.

    Essentially Aquarius is six power conditioners in one chassis, with each outlet having its own dedicated filter network. Thus Differential Mode noise created by connected electronics cannot cross contaminate to the next output socket.

    There are two high current outlets, rated at 16A, (3680VA / 230V) suitable for power amplifiers, active loudspeakers or sub woofers and four medium current outlets for the remaining items in your audio or home cinema system.

    The medium current outlets auto sense the requirements of the load based upon power draw, thus a projector (typical 300W) can be plugged in next to a CD player (typical 35W) and both will have an auto adjusted correct level of filtration.

    Housed in a rack width steel and aluminium chassis Aquarius is high quality design yet highly functional.

  • Nordost QX2 Two Field Generator Line Conditioner (AUS Plug)

     

    QX2 and QX4 units are power purifiers that are affective without compromising the peak current capabilities of your power supply or the integrity of your grounding. Each QX unit contains QRT field generators (two in the QX2, four in the twice as powerful QX4) that alleviate the impact of poor quality AC power on your sensitive electronics, limiting RFI and timing errors. Place your QX unit(s) at the heart of your system and you’ll hear a lower noise floor, greater dynamic range, more fluid musical expression and greater space and ambience. QX units allow you to hear more of your music (and less of your system). Used in conjunction with each other as well as the QBASE-Mark IIs, Qv2s and Qk1s, both the QX2 and Qx4 provide a highly effective answer to the insidious influence of poor AC supplies on musical reproduction. And because of QRT’s modular approach to AC treatment, you can add additional units as you go along – they never become redundant. Once you’ve heard the sense of life and effortless musical flow that comes from having QRT technology in your system, you will want more – which is what makes the modular nature of the QRT products so appealing.

  • PS Audio Stellar Power Plant 3, P3 affordable power plant

    This is the new power plant/regenerator from PS audio and it comes in at an affordable price point, at least much more so than its $17K big brother, the P20. It functions on the same principle of the P20, turning what is dirty voltage off the wall into a perfect AC sine wave.

    Much of the power off your wall suffers from low voltage, sagging power, distorted waveforms and just pure noise and the quality of this power off the wall has gotten worse over the last ten years and continues to degrade. That's why many Hi-Fi enthusiasts are finding that sorting out ones power needs is a crucial investment in a good system. And the regenerators are the best at sorting out these power issues. That's because they start from scratch to produce a new sine wave instead of just trying to mask the problems (as is the case with passive filter products).

    The P3 is already generating alot of hype and reviewers are loving it. Really because it's the only product out there that's a regenorator in this price bracket.

    We, at Carlton Audio Visual, believe this is the true meaning of cheap, clean power for all!!

  • PS Audio DirectStream PowerPlant 12

    The P12 Powerplant. The best way to do power regeneration. Clean up your HiFi!

    We have many customers who have good existing HiFi systems and especially recently with Lockdowns and spending more time at home listening to their systems, they ask 'what's my next step? I want something better. But do I really have to spend big on a new amp? Or is it more worthwhile getting new speakers?' Yes, these are questions facing the priveleged with cash to spend in these uncertain times.

    The obvious answer to these dilemnas in our minds is a regenorator....not just your average power conditioner but a unit that will take the power off the wall and turn it into a perfect 230V sine wave minus the background hum of our modern urban environments.

    For those who LOVE a bit of hands on tech and physics, this unit will even show you what it's improving with its full colour touch display on the front panel. You can measure the distortion that's coming off the wall using a built in THD analyser and oscilloscope and see the improvements that it's making.

    And for those who are simply concerned about the music sounding better, sit back and relax. You here more articulation. The beginning and ending of bowed notes in a string orchestra are discernible and there in all their glory. The die out of piano notes seem to disolve into an inky blackness and dynamics are bigger. 

    Check out PS Audio's offical website here

    Please note the Australian specifications for this unit are different to the American ones as the unit is designed to take Australian Voltage off the wall. For the Australian market, the P12 has 4 outputs.
