Product Description

The PF-1e is a simplified and economical version of the PF-1 MK2 power strip. Keeping a similar architecture of the main filter allowed for the same level of protection to the connected devices, while savings in used components lowered its price significantly. Nevertheless, the PF-1e is a brilliant device, which will prove itself in each – even very advanced audio-video system.

Designing the PF-1e we resigned from the most expensive components. This does not mean, that we used lower quality items or lowered the level of guaranteed safety. The architecture of the main anti-interference filter and the overvoltage protection remained unchanged compared to the PF-1 MK2 strip. Interference is blocked by a RLC filter block. It was built around high-quality metalized polyester capacitors with low inductance and an IP (Iron Powder) filtering core. All elements of the filter are mounted using silver solder on a massive PCB with large cross-section traces.

In the power strip, we resigned from using traditional protective elements like cartridges or thermal fuses, which have a detrimental influence on the sound as they throttle the current flowing to the protected device. The overvoltage protection of the power strip is based on a cascade of protective elements like plasma spark gaps and a new generation of UltraMOV varistors. Working together with a properly made in-wall electrical grid, this setup guarantees complete protection against overvoltage and overcurrent.

The massive chassis of the power strip is made completely out of metal. It constitutes also a perfectly sealed shield protecting from RFI and EMI interference. In the PF-1e we resigned from the signal LED and the distribution rails. The internal cabling is made from copper conductors with 2.5 QMM diameter. There are six Schuko output sockets. The PF-1e is also available with NEMA 5-20R sockets, used in the United States and some Asian countries, as well as Australian-type sockets AS/NZS 3112.

The PF-1e has an IEC input socket, which accepts all kinds of power cords. The strip is available in two versions: without cable and with a 1.5m power cord. To maximize the potential of the PF-1e we recommend the usage of the power cable LC-1 EVO or LC-2 EVO.

All GigaWatt products are covered by an insurance policy for the connected equipment, with a total insurance value of 1000000 PLN. The insurance does not apply to the United States and Canada.

Arkadiusz Ogrodnik
“In a mid-range audio system consisting of the Hegel H80 amplifier, the Ayon CD10 player and the Q Acoustics Concept 500 loudspeakers, the sound changes were clearly audible, especially in the treble range and dynamics. Regarding the bass range – with this strip it gained on contours and became more readable. Of course, these changes were not as intense as in the case of the recently tested PC-2 EVO + conditioner, but they are so audible that they can satisfy especially people who have contact with this type of accessory for the first time.”

“The power strip GigaWatt PF-1e has a positive effect on the sound quality of the stereo system and even the TV picture. This is noticeable enough and you can get used to it so quickly that after a few days, returning to power the system straight from the socket, you will feel the discomfort enough that you will quickly want to return to power using the PF-1e. The desired effect can be obtained with the version equipped with the company’s LC-1 MK3 power cable, and the LC-2 MK3 cable will bring even bigger changes. The PF-1e strip is recommended above all to people for whom the priority is to protect audio-video devices, but also to improve the quality of sound and image.”
