PLiXiR Elite BAC 3000 Balanced Power Conditioner

Lower the noise floor of your high-end audio system dramatically with the PLiXiR Elite BAC 3000 Balanced Power Conditioner.  Conventional power conditioners use active filtration to “condition” the AC power line. The active circuits require their own voltage to do their job and may be robbing your system of dynamics and clarity.     


All PLiXiR Balanced Power products use the science of Common Mode Noise Rejection and state-of-the-art transformers to cancel out residual noise and hum in your system with no sacrifice in voltage to active circuits, to restore the true dynamic range and bandwidth of your amplifier and other electronics with the cleanest bass you’ve ever heard. The noise floor drops and the music literally leaps out of utter blackness.  Hearing the level of clarity and resolution balanced power delivers is addictive.  Read the testimonials from satisfied consumers around the world.

Description

Balanced Power Delivery by PLiXiR

In traditional non-balanced power delivery, line noise from the equipment and the mains leak to earth, polluting every chain in the system.

In PLiXiR balanced power delivery, noise from live and neutral are out of phase to each other and canceled out at the Earth point.  This will drop the noise floor of your system dramatically.  Music leaps out of your system from utter blackness.  The tone of your system is more pure, and thus more revealing and natural.

Technology and Craft

The Elite Series balanced power conditioners features the highest grade power transformer from Noratel, the inventor and premier toroidal power transformer manufacturer. Customized to our exact spec, with proprietary XQ (eXtra Quiet) technology, the Elite balanced power conditioner provides the best noise isolation, power conditioning and optimal systems grounding for your hifi system in a single package.

Optional Cryo-treated USA Duplex Receptacle (PLUS-D)

From our design and manufacturing of PLiXiR balanced AC power conditioners, we are always looking for better components to improve aspects of the sound which we value the most; neutral tone and true transparency. This allows equipment plugged into PLiXiR BAC to perform to their true potential.

The made in Japan PLiXiR PLUS-D Hospital grade USA Duplex receptacle is one such component. With copper alloy conductors for the Live / Neutral connections, a vibration damping thermoplastic body, a thick metal plate for reinforcement and other design elements, in its native form we find that it is what we are looking for fundamentally.

We then apply certain modifications to the outlet that improves the structural integrity and grounding further. The final unit then goes thru a deep cryogenic process to relax the stress accumulated. The resulting PLUS-D is the best USA Receptacle that we have tried, in terms of absolute neutral tone, true transparency and most importantly, delivers music naturally.  These are sold as a step-up option to our standard and highly respected Japanese-made USA receptacle.

Other Features

Casing: Extra rigid aluminum vault casing – Thick precision extruded and CNC machined aluminium slabs form the casing for the PLiXiR Elite BAC 3000 Pre-Con. 

Vibration Control: Isolated by Bfly Audio – Bfly Audio Master Pro-Feet Series isolation footers from Germany are installed onto PLiXiR Elite BAC 3000. They isolate the Elite BAC 3000 Pre-Con from the ill effects of self and environmental vibration and contribute to the natural sound of the Elite BAC 3000.

Master-crafted: Built and tested by Master craftsman — Each BAC is hand-made by a master craftsman. As much as possible, all electrical connections are done by point to point direct soldering with minimal use of connectors and joints that degrades sound.

Standard USA IEC Power Cable included.

5 reviews for PLiXiR Elite BAC 3000 Balanced Power Conditioner

  1. Foo, Audiophile Consumer, May 2017

    The Plixir Elite BAC 3000 is an essential and indispensable component in my Hifi setup. By providing a cleaner supply, it helps to create a lower noise floor and reveal more details from the music with no loss in dynamics.

    In fact, the dynamics seems to improve especially when listening to classical symphonies between soft to sudden loud passages. This is probably due to improved details and transparency. Foo, Audiophile Consumer, May 2017

  2. KT, Audiophile Consumer, April 2019

    The Elite BAC 3000 is the 3rd generation of Plixir power conditioners in my system. The latest Elite design offers a stunning new level of impact and immersion for the listener. The realistic shimmer and presence of voices and instruments are both eerie and exhilarating.

    Beyond surface effects, Plixir purifies the core of the musical tone itself. Music is rooted upon a sonic foundation so pristine that harmonies ring truer to life, rhythms flow with natural ease, dynamics spring with startling vitality, and complex layers of musical texture unfold in vivid realism. Clearly, this was designed with the heart and mind of a musician.” KT, Audiophile Consumer, April 2019

    The BAC 3000 is amazing but most noticeable was the improvement in the bass delivery. Not that the bass was louder but more controlled. The cymbal was clearer and lingers a tad longer. The piano notes were also clearer. It just makes music
    more enjoyable. An expensive investment…..but worth it. Cheers! Thank you!

    Since it’s arrival, the BAC 3000 has performed sterling service providing all of my units, including rebuilt Quad ELS63 electrostatic speakers, with a power supply which supports all the audio components in the chain with, I believe, the best AC supply money can buy and with clear sonic benefits. I have since swapped a Pink Triangle PiP2 preamp-Krell KMA160 power amps with a valve Conrad Johnson pre-power combo. Unless the units have captive cables, I use Plixir Statement balanced power cable to the units.

    Apart from the obvious delivery of stable AC current to the components, to my ears the introduction of the BAC 3000 has opened up the sound stage width and depth, made performers more ‘tangible’ and focused without being over-etched and introduced an acoustic ‘space’ between the performers, apparent even in mono recordings. It seems to lend an inky darkness to silence – out of which sound attack and decay are even clearer. Anh, Audiophile Consumer, April 2020

  5. Mr. Woo, Audiophile Consumer, April 2020

    I am blown away by the spatial and detailed midrange. The bass is deep and layered.
    The strings are so seductive. Mr. Woo, Audiophile Consumer, April 2020
