Amplifier / Phono Isolation System
The Black Shadow Power PODS,
Form follows Function,
This system adds nothing nor takes anything away, Providing the most versatile power distribution for your rig.
This system consists of 2 Power Pods, 1 Master, 1 Slave, and 2 Power cords, 1 Power and 1 Umbilical. Either pod can be used individually to provide 2 outlets + Grounding Points, or mated together to provide 4 outlets in two locations,2+2 with separate Grounding points to isolate Amps from Phono or Digital sections dramatically reducing noise and interference. These power PODS passively pass all of the power available from your wall. No Circuit Breakers, or Power Switches to limit Current.
This ensures that your components are never starved for power. These units are star wired which provides all outlets with equal power delivery.
It's Die-cast aluminum construction provides 100% shielding of EMI and RFI noise. Internal wiring is Military spec 99.99% Silver plated OFC copper wire with Teflon Dielectric
Die-cast Aluminum Powder Coated Case,Non-Magnetic. Internally wired with mil-spec aerospace, silver plated OFC copper, Teflon insulated wire. Hospital Grade receptacles, independently wired to isolate the 2 outlets. Digital Volt meter

The wire is MIL spec aerospace stranded silver plated copper wire, silver being the best conductor of electricity, Teflon insulation is very close to air resulting in very low capacitance which makes the cable suitable for any audio component as it will not contribute to instability, or absorb the signal. Teflon insulation is very thin resulting in a cable that is lightweight and flexible. This cable will not stress the jacks on your components, but is very large gauge.
This heavy-wall wire, rated at 1,000 volts rms or 3,000 volts DC, saves both size and weight compared with many other insulated wires of the same rating. Suitable for broad-frequency use at elevated temperatures in high-reliability programs where electrical and thermal stability are important.
The powerCON is a locking 3 conductor equipment AC connector with contacts for line, neutral and pre-mating ground contact.
It replaces appliance couplers wherever a very rugged solution in combination with a locking device is needed in order to guarantee a safe power connection.
Provides superior connection compared to IEC inlets that will loosen over time
Features & Benefits
•Power-in and power-out versions with different keying to avoid the possibility of intermating.
•Fast and easy twist lock latching system
•Extremely robust and reliable
•Unique Neutrik chuck type strain relief
•Improved kink protection by two-component bushing
•New bushing design avoids unintended opening
•UL, cUL recognized components
•4 µm Ag Silver plated contacts
Hospital Grade Receptacles are superior in the following ways:
The ground terminal is totally isolated from the lead and neutral circuits to reject ground loop noise and electro-magnetic interference. The internal circuitry, wire and blade contacts are heavy-gauge phosphor bronze made of 95% solid copper- not plated brass!
The receptacle body is made of injection molded thermoplastic with a Nylon face for high dielectric strength. The receptacle grips plug blades tighter than any other audio-grade receptacle on the market. Receptacles can definitely make a difference. Hospital grade receptacles grip tighter for safe use in oxygen-rich environments and better sounding in Audio Applications. Tighter connection = better energy transfer.
Specifications on Commercial grade, outlets, versus Hospital grade, outlets are listed as follows:
Insulator for Commercial Grade = Nylon
Insulator for Hospital Grade =Thermo Polyester
Material for ground strap, Commercial Grade = Steel
Material for ground strap, Hospital Grade = Brass
Material for voltage contact, Commercial = Alloy Brass
Material for voltage contact, Hospital = Pure Brass
Material for mount strap, Commercial Grade = Steel
Material for mount strap, Hospital Grade +Brass, Ni plate.
The materials used in manufacturing Hospital Grade products are higher quality,
and should not surprise anyone that they sound better. Just compare the insulators and conductors, not even considering the plating and grounding specs.
“I waited to write until i had a firm understanding in the capabilities of the unit.
It replaced a Shunyata venom as i had expanded and moved it to a second system.
I used a direct A/B comparison between the two. Marks distributor is excellent.
I could perceive NO DIFFERENCE between the two distributors. Quite a feat for 1/4 the price.
Mark's cables are the real deal and it is impressive.
I do not use audiophile adjectives to describe the presentation of music,
after all, what the hell does "organic" mean anyway?
Different meanings to different people. If you want an excellent distributor, no matter the price, talk to Mark. Highly recommended. ”
