Product Description

Power to the people

The iFi PowerStation is for everyone who likes their audio interference free.

It comes in 4 variatons – UK, EU and AU with 6 individual sockets and USA/JAPAN with 8.

Put a stop to RFI or EMI noise and enjoy pain-free audio – all from one solid, snazzy dark anodised aluminium power block.

Ready, steady, go.

The PowerStation uses iFi’s Active Noise Cancelation II to ACTIVELY eliminates noise across the frequency range, even across the lower frequencies.

Each outlet has added passive filters to also eradicate noise from the very highest frequencies.

Nothing left to chance…

Each outlet is independently isolated in its own chamber to prevent cross-contamination, with the addition of vibration-damping EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate).

We use PurCopper – a form of 99.9999 per cent pure OFHC (oxygen-free high-conductivity) continuous-cast copper – for its superior conductivity.

Gives you the earth…

The PowerStation has inbuilt earth/ground and polarity detection.

No earth/ground can lead to annoying buzzes and hums – the scourge of audio.

We’ve added a 4mm banana socket to the PowerStation so a grounding cable can be used to create a ground/earth when one isn’t present.

Bingo, the sound is gone.

 

…but keeps you grounded

And the PowerStation is smart. The supplementary ground/earth connection will NOT introduce a ground loop EVEN if the system is already earthed.

More than one earth would also create a ground loop leading to more buzzing and humming and we don’t want that.

Fiercely protective

Polarity detection is vital if you don’t want to hamper the quality of your audio mains. With the PowerStation, this is built-in.

And never fear, max. 30,000A @ 1,000V/10uS surge protection is also here. If it detects a power surge or a mains short, the PowerStation will shut down, protecting your downstream equipment from peril.

Not so humble beginnings

The PowerStation doesn’t forget where it came from – the original AC iPurifier.

You can still use your original AC iPurifier with the PowerStation – use them to separate your digital and analog devices for even less noise contamination.

This is an active not a passive product. As can be seen from the graph, it cancels far more noise across the frequency range than a passive product.

Active filtration is MUCH better in the lower frequencies, at -40dB. Passive filtration is only truly effective in the very top-end of the frequency range.

PurCopper – a form of 99.9999 percent pure OFHC (oxygen-free high-conductivity) continuous-cast copper – is used extensively for its superior conductivity.

This includes 13 AWG, heavy-gauge internal wiring with multi-layered polymer insulation, solid PurCopper busbars, and the conductive elements of the outlets themselves.

Our Wireless Purification System (WPS) is a complex circuit that reduces power line noise without audible or measured side-effects.

This is important because other solutions while attempting to curb noise, also hamper dynamics.

The LED indicators show Polarity and Earth detection. As usual, green is good, red signifies an issue.

There are four possible combinations and these can be found in a brief table in the User Manual. This tells you what the issue is and suggests how to remedy it.

The Over-voltage Surge Protection (OSP) is an auto-detection and cut-off circuit.

Should it detect an excessive power surge or short in the mains electricity it will automatically cut off. If this issue persists, it will not reboot and will protect your equipment from harm.

It is effective to max. 30,000A @ 1,000V/10uS.

Our Intelligent Ground is a smart diagnostic tool.

It only actively provides an earth/ground connection if your system needs one. It will NOT create a ground loop even if the system is already earthed/grounded.

If the AC iPurifier is placed in the middle of the PowerStation it will also act as a noise shield. Noise is reduced, isolated, and confined to the respective left/right sections of the AC iPurifier.

Use it to separate your analog and digital devices.

Based on military tech, our improved Active Noise Cancellation II® actively cancels all incoming noise.

It does this in a similar way to active noise-canceling headphones – it generates a signal identical to that of the incoming electrical noise but in the opposite phase, actively canceling it out. This is highly effective at removing low- and mid-frequency noise, while passive insulating filters deal with higher frequency interference. This combination is measurably more effective at eradicating noise corrupting the USB signal than devices relying solely on passive filtering.

It reduces the noise floor by > 40dB (> 100x).

Test: iFi PowerStation power strip and AC iPurifier
Thorsten Lösch, the busy developer of iFi Audio, surprises us again and again with ingenious solutions on the subject of HiFi. And because more and more electronic users put more and more loads on the power grid, it would be a miracle if Lösch didn’t have some ideas ready here too. One of them is the iFi PowerStation power strip, which of course is anything but a “normal” power strip …

The iFi PowerStation AC Line Conditioner
“With the introduction of the PowerStation, the clever folks at iFi have stuffed some remarkable power conditioner technology into an attractive device at an even more attractive price.”

“…the PowerStation is a seriously impressive addition. It delivers a meaningful improvement over more conventional mains devices and combines this with some useful and well-implemented additional features. Throw in the excellent build quality, reasonable looks and scope for a little further upgrade and you have a very fine mains conditioning unit indeed”

IFI AUDIO POWERSTATION AND AC IPURIFIERS
“…with the PowerStation engaged I was floored by how much deeper, clearer, and harmonically rich the voices of the trumpet and piano sounded, and by how much more focused the reverberant acoustics of the recording space became.”

Finally, a power conditioner that works.
Over the years I’ve tried all the usual suspects of power conditioners and power regenerators, most of which didn’t solve my problem of noisy power in the evening hours. All were eventually sold, including the PS Audio P10 power regenerator I tried last year for some months. This unit has worked like none of the others have. Amazing. Solid build quality is also a plus.

Expensive, but (for me) very effective
I live in an old building from the 30s and the last refresh of the house electrical system was more than 50 years ago. At the same time, I have neighbors who like to indulge in all kinds of hobbies with pre-historic machines at the weekend. Especially when you have time to listen to music in peace, you can be sure that the loudspeakers will also make quiet whistling, crackling or crackling. So far, these disturbances have been fairly well suppressed to a tolerable level by line filters from the hardware store.

My last new acquisition (a streaming preamp) reacted so fussy to the network interference that listening was really no longer fun. So the alternative was: exchange the device, finally let the electrician lay the long planned separate line from the meter box – or try something completely different.

I had used a power supply from ifi for a problematic device some time ago, so I knew the brand and the basic idea of ​​active interference compensation. At the time, however, I was not really convinced of the result. Nevertheless, I wanted to give ifi another chance, but I almost ordered the (expensive !!!) bar with the expectation that I would have to send it back.

In fact, the results in my application scenario are so convincing that I can only advise anyone with real network problems to try the part: Not only are all of the above-mentioned faults gone, but the system’s noise floor is also significantly lower. Incidentally, the active interference compensation affects the entire strip, but each socket has its own line filter. If you suspect that one of the system components is affecting the others on the network side (!), The bar is also worth trying.

Really good quality
Great power strip. I’m getting better sound from my ps audio amps and mytek Brooklyn dac +. Better than Furman and Furutech that I have used. Clean natural sound.
