BC60X1 hybrid balanced powerline conditioner filter

Post by Gilbert Y » Tue Oct 15, 2013 2:37 pm

Here is the mystery powerline conditioner filter we are going to show off at TAVES 2013

http://www.flickr.com/photos/17843311@N ... 593125805/

It combines balanced power and passive parallel filtering design. Standard unit is 12 outlets. 6 of each feed through passive parallel filter and 800 watt balanced power design for line level components. The other 6 outlets have the parallel filter treatment similar to BC6020 design for power amp and other components react better without balanced power and need more current.

The big different between this BC60X1 and other powerline filtering conditioners currently we are offering is the internal X1e module. I will disclose more marketing BS after TAVES. :wink: :roll: :lol: 8)

All lite, two more things. One, there is a internal user replaceable surge protector. It is got poooooped by thunder storm, we can supply another one and you can open the cover and replace it. Unplug the unit from the wall first please.

Second, the retail price for the standard 12 outlet is CAD4495.00.

PS The internal pictures are from the prototype unit. There will be some part not in production unit depends on feature and customer requirement.

Hi Gilbert, can I ask if the BC60X1 has a 20amp or 15 am iec connector?

Also, will the unit come with a power cord, and if, which one?

Also, will plugging a power amp into the unit constrict dynamics?

Thanks,
James

Hi James,

The standard BC60X1 has a 15A IEC connector.

Plugging the power amp into the passive filter outlets will not constrict power or dynamics. The balanced power filter outlets are for line level inputs. The benefit of balanced power for line level electronics is that it cancels out the inherent noise and electronic artifacts produced by these components that get sent back down the power line.

The BC60X1 takes filtration to a new level far beyond the BC6020 due to the X1 filtering module. I'm breaking in the prototype right now getting it ready for TAVES. So far, so awesome!

So far the BC60X1 does not include a power cord but this product is so new Gilbert has not finalized all the details ... officially at least 8)

James

Raven is correct the standard unit comes with 15amp inlet. 20 amp IEC or Neutrik Powercon inlet is available for special order. In term of power cord, it comes with a cheap 14 awg power cord. Nothing special.

I find this interesting from the vantage point that I always felt the old Music Ring sounded better than the BC6000 for line level components.

If you remember my comments at the time; the BC6000 sounded a little sterile in my system.

So here we are; back to the future.

The BC6000 makes my system sound stereoreal :!: :D 8) :arrow:

I have also commented that I much prefer my Music Ring 1200 for line level products. By having it connected to my BC6020, I have a similar unit, minus the "Xe fiiltering module." It is a wonderful and vital filtering combination that serves both my audio and home theater system.

Gilbert:

Any chance the new X1e filtering module can be made into an "add on" product to either the BC6000 or MR1200 series, perhaps with a plug?

Thanks.

X1e module plug in is possible for almost anything. It's just the matter of using the right plug.

Gilbert,

How does one find the sweet spot? Is this contingent on the device
build (GICPO, BC6000) and internal wiring?
