MIT’s new SL Z-Cord 3fp is an affordable way to increase both audio and video performance in your system, and bring you more enjoyment from your music and movies. A combination of a high quality power cord and the patented parallel AC Filterpole technology, it works to clean and condition the power going to an AV component without compromises. MIT’s parallel filters also act on other nearby components plugged into the same circuit, so the SL Z-Cord 3fp can actually improve performance of the rest of your gear in the same location.
Powerline noise can be introduced to your system either directly from your appliances and tools for example, or indirectly, when the line itself acts as an antenna to inject external radio frequency and electromag- netic interference. Today, more sources of noise exist because of all the digital equipment in our homes and offices.
Powerline noise affects both our audio and video signals, as well as slowing down the digital data streams on our networks. Audio can be affected by distortions introduced in contaminated equipment, and can manifest itself as subtle grainy distortions, compressed imaging, and unnatural or harsh timbre.
Similarly, video picture quality will suffer in the form of slight graininess or snow, especially in darker pictures. The level of contrast and depth of field are affected, as is the natural detail that comes from accurately passing very high frequencies. In extreme conditions, line noise can create visible hum bars and color shifts.
MIT’s Z-Series power filtration products feature our patented parallel AC Filterpoles, which includes specially-tuned networks for eliminating reflected noise and converting it to harmless thermal heat, discharging it to ground. This is done by creating a very low impedance across the load at a variety of frequencies corresponding to sources of unwanted noise.
