Top class distributors and line filters: Huge sound and image enhancement!
Developed by Garth Powell, the Niagara 1000 is based on the same design philosophy and incorporates the same patented technology as its larger brother, the Niagara 7000, but in a smaller, smaller package - and at a fraction of the price.
Similar to the Niagara 7000, the Niagara 1000 uses ultra low-resistance single-conductor wiring for low-noise directionality, capacitor formation technology that significantly improves linearity and minimizes distortion, and low-impedance AC inputs and outputs with heavy silver plating on high-purity beryllium. Copper for hitherto unmatched noise dissipation.
In addition, the Niagara 1000 features our non-destructive overvoltage protection, zero-ground contamination technology and overvoltage shutdown, ensuring that your customers' A / V systems are completely protected against overvoltage.
If the Niagara 1000 also lacks the elaborate power peak correction and 7000 biased dielectric isolation transformers, it can boast our patented Ground Noise Dissipation System and ultra-linear noise extraction technology. The Niagara 7000's twelve AC outlets are juxtaposed with six high-performance outputs integrated into its sleek body. The maximum input current - 1000 Amps RMS on the Niagara 20 - is XMS 7000 Amps RMS.
Of course, the biggest differences between the Niagara 7000 and the 1000 are immediate: size, shape and weight. The Niagara 7000 can be rack mounted, measures 15,5 "B x 5,24" H x 17,2 "T and weighs impressive 81 lbs. The Niagara 1000, on the other hand, is designed to be placed in or on a shelf, next to or behind a hi-fi system, measures 4,75 "B x 4,0" H x 20,0 "T and weighs significantly more 5,5 lbs more manageable.
Test extract from STEREOPHILE USA:
Really, folks. , , I am by nature a preacher and pontificator, but as an audio journalist I try, mostly without success, to avoid being a fabulist. And I'm here to tell you, AudioQuest's Niagara 1000 delivered conspicuously-as in 100% double-blind recognizable-more tangibly real, jumpin ', jivin', easier-to-follow music than my Brooklyn wall power. It might be the single most important, most high-value component I've auditioned for Stereophile.

"... because with the Niagara 1000 it is possible to reduce the volume level without sacrificing perceived power and structural clarity, enjoyable listening is facilitated, even and especially with classical chamber music, in which there is more to audibility and uncolored timbres anyway when sheer sheer force arrives. ... "
"Minimized noise, but maximized tones. Less hardening, but more details in the treble. All in all, more precision, space and peace in the sound. A Niagara 1000 filter solution is a no-brainer for audiophiles with a chain, say, beyond the 3.000 Euro mark. ... In that sense, the new Niagara is a clear case: a sparkling clean recommendation. "
