The EAD AC MASTER 8000 is a state-of-the-art AC power supply center and conditioner that uses a combination of balanced transformers and RF/EMI absorption devices to dramatically reduce the noise in the power supply and absorb RF & EMI interference. The AC Master features two isolated transformers, one digital transformer and one analog transformer that provides separate power to analog and digital connections for source components, preamps and video components. The balanced transformers provide technical power and reduce AC noise. The proprietary Ceralex™ devices then dissipate RFI and EMI for a vanishingly low noise floor. The sound is pure and natural without the harshness caused by high frequency distortion and out of phase effects.
The unit features passive components made of a proprietary material known as Ceralex™. This revolutionary material actually dissipates RF and EMI to provide a more pure and natural signal. Most power line filters treat only live and neutral lines, to prevent interference from entering the soundstage. Ceralex™ components are placed on all incoming AC lines, including the ground line, and frequency-tuned for maximum efficiency and dissipate RFI and EMI. This results in a lower noise floor and improves the dynamic range of every component in your system.
The unit is rated at 20 amps and has 14 power outlets: six analog balanced, six digital balanced, and two 20-amp outlets for power amps and projectors. Has a 12 V trigger input. Has two isolated balanced transformers separately supplying the analog and digital outlets. Both sides of the unit have GFCI style resettable breakers. The front panel has a blue voltage meter, a resettable breaker button, and a blue LED indicator lamp.
The side panels with the outlets have no scratches or dents. All outlets were checked for voltage and all operate properly. The resettable breakers operate properly. The top panel has a few very minor blemishes such as a few pinholes where the underlying silver color shows through and a few minor rub marks. The “Jeff Rowland” style aluminum V-cut front panel is in good shape (it is not a Rowland unit), the top edge has some noticeable scratches and rub marks, the middle brushed metal portion where the meter is located is perfect, all lettering is crisp, the aluminum front panel portion (V-cut portion) in good shape, no major imperfections but has some blotches/rub marks that can be seen in the shiny surface if viewed at certain angles, the far right bottom has a ding; the voltage meter shows the line voltage but the meter lamp is burned out and two sections of the lens cover have an optical distortion - see photos; the lens is not cracked or chipped however. The meter is small so not a big deal, IMO. So, not perfect but a striking display overall with that “Rowland” type front panel and the unit is rated for 20 amps, unlike many other power conditioners. Includes the stock 20 amp power cord. No original box, no manual.
Dimensions: 17” wide at front that tapers to 3 ¼” at the rear, 13 3/8” deep, 4 5/8” high.
