X8 Block UK
Upgrade your purchase with these options:
X Blocks are hand built to exacting standards by our highly-skilled manufacturing team and are guaranteed* to provide a lifetime of listening enjoyment. They're compact, attractive and versatile: simply choose how many sockets you need, specify your mains cable, then sit back and enjoy better performance from your Hi-Fi or Home Cinema.
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™
You could use it for plugging in sensitive sources such as a CD player or turntable, and connect your amplification into your existing block. Or you could use it for connecting your mains filters and conditioners – such as your AbZorber™ or PowerPurifier™, leaving your existing mains extension for your Hi-Fi components.
