I am selling Shunyata MPC-12C power distributor and surge protector in perfect condition functionally and in very good condition cosmetically. Some minor scuffing is visible around the power outlets (see pictures). Otherwise, the unit would be cosmetically excellent. It is completely broken in and ready to use. To improve vibration control, this particular unit comes with Shunyata's SSF-38 stainless steel feet pre-installed (a $250 value). It does NOT come with a power cord.
The Shunyata MPC-12C is a 12-outlet power distribution and surge protection product designed for computer-based audio and music server systems that contain audio amplifiers, preamps, DACs, streamers and similar audio playback equipment in close proximity to computers, laptops, monitors, routers, external hard drives and similar computer gear.
To reduce electromagnetic noise, the MPC-12C is divided into two six-outlet 'zones' (see pictures). For components plugged into the audio zone, Shunyata uses its proprietary CCI filter arrays and other technology to reduce noise caused by the power line and component-to-component interference. Components plugged into the computer zone are electrically ‘firewalled’ from the audio zone thereby preventing the computer gear from contaminating the performance of audio playback. Noise reduction between the zones can exceed 40db.
For surge protection, the MPC-12C uses Shunyata magnetic breakers.They operate right up the to the maximum current rating without the limitations of fuses or thermal breakers.
The MPC-12 Series power distributors are designed using Shunyata's DTCD® analysis and carry a 20-Amp continuous rating for virtually unlimited power delivery allowing them to power entire systems including high powered amplifiers.
Shipping Note: I will only ship to verified Paypal addresses in the US. The shipping cost quoted in the ad is for the continental US.
Here are a few of the Shunyata technologies used in the MPC-12C (taken from Shunyata's product description).
CCI (COMPONENT-TO-COMPONENT ISOLATION)
CCI filters reduce power line conducted and radiated noise from one component to another.
SDC – SHUNYATA DIGITAL COIL
The digital coil is unique in that it simultaneously provides common mode and differential mode noise reduction. The SDC isolates high frequency noise without significantly affecting the micro and macro dynamic range of the music.
HIGH-CURRENT A.C. INLET
The MPC-12 Series is fitted with a HUBBELL IEC C20 inlet that is rated at 20-Amps of current. It has massive electrical contacts, and it is treated in Shunyata Research’s Cryogenics computer controlled cryogenics facility.
The MPC-12 provides 40,000 amps of surge protection. It also includes fault detection circuitry and an LED status indicator that monitors its operation.
VIBRATION CONTROL The MPC-12 uses Shunyata's isolation footers. This particular unit improves on that by adding Shunyata SSF-38 stainless steel feet.
