PLiXiR Elite BDC 2A / 4A / 6A Ultimate Linear DC Power Supply with 3-stage Noise Regulation.

PLiXiR Elite BDC Linear Balanced DC Power Supply is Designed to Reduce All The Noise Types Present in a DC Power Supply.

The Elite BDC range of balanced linear DC power supplies are our flagship cost-no-object product.  Best in-class 3 stage design prevents noise from your equipment from polluting other hi-fi equipment in your setup. 

Our ground-up approach begins with a balanced AC power design, along with a two-stage voltage regulation consisting of an open-loop first-stage pre-regulator and a close-loop feedback second stage.

Our unique balanced AC power circuit effectively removes ground loop noise and reduces the diode noise. 

The first stage pre-regulation filters the bulk of the noise, specifically the high-frequency noise, and the heat from the second stage voltage regulator. The 2 stage regulation design as a “gate” to prevent the downstream noise from crossing back to the AC power hands.

Features:

  • Output voltage available from 9 Vdc to 30 Vdc. Available in: 110 Vac or 230 Vac input voltage
  • Less than 1mVrms residual noise at DC ouput. Output Current available in 2/4/6 Amps current continuous. 
  • Includes one-meter-long PLiXiR High Current DC Power Cable with a choice of 1.3mm, 1.7mm, 2.1mm or 2.5mm DC plugs to mate with your equipment.
  • Black anodized, sandblasted aluminum
  • 2.75″ H x 6.3″ W x 9.1″ D
  • 2A 5.5 lbs;  4A 7 lbs;  6A 8 lbs

Acoustic Energy AE509 Speaker System / pr.


The AE509 is a new slim-line floor-standing loudspeaker with compact dimensions, suitable for medium to large sized rooms. Similar to the AE500 comparison, the AE509 offers higher levels of performance and finish than its 300 Series equivalent. The 500 Series features our newly developed carbon fiber tweeters and mid/bass drivers, designed to match the pistonic power and accuracy of our legendary ceramic aluminium drivers but with improved self-damping for a smoother, more transparent sound.

Offering unparalleled levels of performance, quality and value the result is an audio product with clean, uncluttered lines delivering a thrilling and powerful presentation discerning Acoustic Energy owners have come to expect for over 30 years.

The slim-line cabinets are finished in Piano Gloss Black, Piano Gloss White or American Walnut wood veneer finishes. Solid Aluminium bars are supplied to ensure rigid floor-coupling and maximum stability, whilst the stiffness of the metal structure reduces the room to speaker interaction.
