PLiXiR Elite BAC 400 Balanced Power Conditioner

$ 1,595.00

PLiXiR Elite BAC 400 is the Ultimate Power Conditioner for Desktop Audio Systems.

Lower the noise floor of your high-end audio / video system dramatically with the PLiXiR Elite Series BAC 400 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 power 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.

Alternative Power Conditioning for:

Desk-fi setup including a DAC, head amplifier and a pair of small sized active speakers (example ADAM’s Artist 3).

Hi-fi source equipment (Pre-Amp, DAC, Transport, CD/BD Player, media server, turntable etc).

Mac mini style media server PC/Laptop together with your audio equipment.

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

Single-winding transformer: Single-winding transformer dedicated models for 120 Vac and 230 Vac input/output, and each transformer only has a single winding for their intended application for the best performance possible

Casing: Extruded, 5mm-thick aluminium casing body. Thick metal top and bottom plates provide an ultra-rigid casing that guards against the sound-degrading effects of mechanical vibrations and protects the transformer from external damage

Master-crafted: Individually built and tested by hand by master craftsmen

Standard USA IEC Power Cable included.

1 review for PLiXiR Elite BAC 400 Balanced Power Conditioner

  1. Kelvin, Desktop Audiophile Consumer May 2019

    “My desktop setup consists of a Cambridge Audio 840C CD player (modified by James as well) and a Woo Audio WA22 tube headphone amplifier. With both connected to the Elite BAC 400, I first noticed a lower and darker noise floor as compared to using my previous Japanese-branded power strip. And after a few days of settling down, I further noticed better dynamics and a more layered and precise soundstaging. Music sounds more natural and engaging. The Elite BAC 400 complements my setup excellently, allowing them to perform even better, and I want to thank James for introducing me to this great product.” Kelvin, Desktop Audiophile Consumer May 2019
