Power Distribution

Power distributor and power cord - the heart of the audio system

In particular the area of the power distributor and power cords of the power supply causes significant performance impairment, because

  • the interfering fields penetrating from the urban grid and from the in-house grid (computer, refrigerator, etc.)
  • the interfering fields caused by the distinct audio devices itself (transformer, switching power supplies etc.) and
  • the potential equalization currents generated by the grounding of the audio equipment, and
  • the high frequency interfering fields radiated from the environment by the antenna function of the power cords into the audio equipment (WLAN, mobile phones, etc.)

 

mix within the power strip / power distribution unit and flow back and distribute in complex form through the power and signal cords to the devices, limiting the transmission quality to the highest degree.

The impairments through electrical and electromagnetic interferences are severe and may have the following effects:

  • a loss of resolution
  • a loss of dynamics
  • an artificial, sometimes sharp gloss in the high frequencies
  • a diminished spatial imaging
  • a frequency balance shift towards the mid-section
  • shifted time coherence or phase coherency problems resp.

 

Mixing and distribution of the electrical interfering fields to all devices is the technical background, why the “last meter” of the power cords incl. the power strip is so crucial. Therefore, an integrated and adjusted overall system is essential.

The SCHNERZINGER Power System

Providing the sockets OUTLET, the power distributers NEW INNOVATOR or OPERATOR resp., and the POWER CORDS of the respective cable lines, SCHNERZINGER offers an integrated high tech overall system, ensuring that within a continuous SCHNERZINGER cabled power system interferences will not be passed between the distinct devices; a significant prerequisite, because without it the superiority of the SCHNERZINGER power products will be significantly reduced.

Thanks to the ATOMIC BONDING processed conductor material, even the highest impulse currents are passed on at full speed to the audio devices. The design-related BIDIRECTIONAL BARRIER function prevents interfering field transmission between the audio devices. 

The result is a current quality that redefines audiophile parameters such as coarse and fine dynamics, bass control, precision and spatial representation of the entire HiFi system. Above all, however, the uncut bandwidth completely preserves the important harmony of the overtone spectrum and thus enables an incredibly natural reproduction of instruments and voices.

This system is supported by the GIGA CANCELING technology from SCHNERZINGER PROTECTORS & GUARDS, which protects the sensitive audio signal from degrading interfering fields. In the POWER, COMPONENT and ROOM application areas, SCHNERZINGER enables a highly effective and unrivaled protection system for your HiFi system.

The NEW INNOVATOR is a complex, bidirectional operating power distribution system for up to 8 resp. 12 devices, representing the summit of the innovative SCHNERZINGER power distribution technology.

The OPERATOR is a power bar for up to 8 resp. 12 devices, ensuring a new quality of full speed processing of current pulses, thanks to the SCHNERZINGER ATOMIC BONDING formatting processes.

SCHNERZINGER OUTLET is a customary wall socket, whose contact pins undergo certain ATOMIC BONDING material structure processes.

ATOMIC BONDING vs. Monocyrstaline OCC / UPOCC Conductors

In contrast to the often only temporarily effective advantages of established treatment and manufacturing processes on the reproduction quality of high-quality audio cables, e.g. cryogenization or OCC or UPOCC casting processes, SCHNERZINGER cables with ATOMIC BONDING conductors enable an audibly purer and unrivaled true-to-life signal transmission - and this permanently! 

In order to recognize the essential advantage of the SCHNERZINGER ATOMIC BONDING technology compared to conventional methods, some background knowledge about the industrial processing of wires used as conductor material in the audio sector is required:

CONVENTIONAL CASTING METHODS:

To manufacture the conductor material in most audio cables, thick copper or silver strands are repeatedly drawn through so-called drawing dies until the wires are thin enough for further use. Every drawing process means enormous mechanical stress, which causes the crystalline grain structure of the wires to disintegrate into many crystals. In a sense, the audio signals have to find their way through many of these grain structures. The flow through the grain boundaries from grain to grain creates an enormous resistance potential every time, which is known to cause slowed signal transport.

The more complex casting process is therefore often used for higher-quality audio cables. Here, liquid copper or silver is continuously poured into molds, which results in longer grain structures. In the even more complex monocrystalline OCC or UPOCC (Ultra-Pure Ohno Continuous Casting) process, the molds are even heated and slowly cooled to prevent the material from solidifying too quickly. This process was developed by Prof. Ohno in the 1980s for industry so that fewer cracks occur in the sheet metal when the copper strands are rolled out

INNOVATIVE APPROACH WITH ATOMIC BONDING:

SCHNERZINGER ATOMIC BONDING, on the other hand, takes a completely different approach:

To easily get the idea of the innovative development approach ATOMIC BONDING, simply envision a conducting wire as a pipe filled with ice cubes, whereby the ice cubes symbolically illustrate the inner grain structure of the wire.

Since long-chain metal structures are quite sensitive and easily disintegrate again after the manufacturing process, e.g. due to vibrations and bending processes, ATOMIC BONDING is a technologically extremely complex process which does not aim at bonding individual ice cubes to form a closed, long-chain monostructure, but on the contrary at crushing the cubes. This results in the smallest ice structure components, which can subsequently be compressed into a stable, homogeneous ice mass with very high cohesive forces in the tube.

A compacted, fused mass of ice has a closed, extremely stable structure - without any gaps. This fact forms the basis for a highly pure and perfect impulse chain - for a true-to-life signal transmission.
