Why X Blocks™?

Designed and built by us, X-Block™ mains extensions use our superb UltraSockets™, are wired throughout with Kimber Kable® and are fitted with our Silencer™ mains filter and SuperClamp™ surge protection.

Bettered only by our Signature PowerBlock™, X-Blocks are our best value mains extensions and can be used in a vast range of systems; from a small CD/amp, to a high-end system comprising up to eight separate components.

X Blocks are hand built to exacting standards by our highly-skilled manufacturing team and are guaranteed* to provide a lifetime of listening enjoyment.




X Block features

  • 2, 4, 6 or 8 UltraSockets™. X Blocks are fitted with our superb, high-performance power sockets to ensure the very best connection. UltraSockets have a very high build quality and, for good measure, every UltraSocket is Deep Cryogenically Treated and treated with DeoxIT® contact enhancer.

  • Kimber internal wiring. We only use Kimber’s high purity TCX™ copper cable for wiring X Blocks. This ensures full performance is maintained throughout the block with minimum impedance – each socket is optimised so there’s no restriction on where high-power components can be plugged in.

  • Bespoke ABS anti-shatter casework. We use ABS because of its combination of strength, rigidity and acoustic neutrality. It also keeps the pound-to-pleasure ratio high too!

  • Silencer™ filtration. Each X Block is fitted with our highly-rated Silencer mains filter to reduce mains noise interference. It works passively, meaning that it has none of the drawbacks of many other mains filters – drawbacks such as loss of musicality and reduced dynamic range. It’s wide-band too, effective at filtering over a wide frequency range. For the techies amongst you, it is a 'passive differential and common mode inductorless non-resonant harmonic filter'!

  • SuperClamp™ spike and surge protection. SuperClamps not only offer protection for your system, they also bring sonic benefits by addressing minor spikes and surges that appear on the mains on a regular basis. In our opinion, these high voltage spikes can raise the background noise level in amplification circuits which is why it makes good sense to try and reduce them.

    We recommend factory replacement of all SuperClamp components every five years to maintain their effectiveness - click here to read more.

  • 10A IEC socket. X Blocks are fitted with a 10A IEC socket, allowing you to choose the level of mains cable you desire. We recommend a minimum of the Evolution-100 PowerKord™

"Amazing Difference It Makes For My System!"
This is my first try to have audiophile power cord and conditioner. I bought this X2 block with yello power cord. Consider impact from each component, I really can tell that X2 block impact is more material that yello. This X2 block compliments well to entry level power cord especially in better controlled trebles and more solid bass.

I can tell the return of investment for my Cambridge Audio CXN/CXA kit.

Thanks to Russ Andrews team!

"X2 Block With PowerKord 100 (Auditioned Together)"
I was a little apprehensive on being able to hear much of an improvement over my YellO 2-way block whilst waiting for my new X2 block and PowerKord-100 to arrive. But on connection the sound quality took an immediately worthwhile and discernible step up on my mid-range Marantz Amp and CD setup with far more detail, better separation and less treble distortion heard. After 30 hrs burn-in, the sound became more natural with more emotion also. I'm expecting the sound to smooth out and improve further with more hours playing as both RA items were ordered with no burn-in or any additional treatment. I'm already wondering if upgrading the CD player's Yellow PowerCord to a PowerKord-100 will bring another worthwhile step up in sound quality!

"Worth Every Penny"
I deeply suspected the power in our new house wasn't the cleanest, and first run of this little baby proved my theory. The little details I missed are back along with a whole new spectrum of detail I hadn't noticed in well loved recordings. And that's with only about 4 hours of burn in.

A definite recommendation to allow your components unshackle themselves from dirty power.
