Atlas glare killing power block
Thursday, December 2, 2021

Atlas has launched the Eos Modular 2.5 power distribution block. Designed to replace cheap multiway power blocks the Eos Modular 2.5 block (£395) is housed in an aluminium chassis, internally wired with 2.5mm² copper conductors, ensuring unimpeded power transmission between individual sockets with minimal resistive losses. 

We live in an electrically noisy ‘soup’, permeated by all manner of potential interference. Household mains distribution blocks and extensions often used for audio/AV systems can actually contribute to performance degradation, offering little in the way of shielding, and typically incorporating noisy neon power indicators, fuse holders and low-grade wiring/bus-bars which are all problematic. The Eos 2.5 is a robust, no-nonsense screened power extension block designed and built to deliver unimpeded power to audio system components.

Each socket is optimised for low contact resistance and minimal resistive losses. When used in conjunction with Eos dd, Eos 4dd or Eos Superior screened mains cables, significant RFI screening is achieved. Rubber studs or conical spikes provide an additional level of mechanical isolation or coupling, with an integral wall mounting option.

An integrated direct ground drain path for screened interconnects and cables featuring the Grun Coherent Earth system reduces the system noise floor still further, typically removing the digital ‘glare’ which is a symptom of RFI/EMI noise degrading the audio signal.
