AudioQuest Introduces the Niagara 3000

Niagara 3000 ... Low-Z Power Noise-Dissipation System

With the introduction of the Niagara 3000, AudioQuest expands your capability to stop noise contamination and current compression. Almost all of the effective technology that distinguishes the award-winning Niagaras 5000 and 7000AQs patented AC Ground Noise-Dissipation System, Transient Power Correction, extremely wide-bandwidth Level-X linear filtering, and moreis here, but at a more accessible price.

Also, the 3000s rack-friendly dimensions (17.5 W x 3.45 H x 15.2 D; 24.9lbs) and the included 2-RU rack ears make Niagara 3000 a very high-performance, cost-effective option for custom-install applications.

Niagara 3000 Low-Z Power Noise-Dissipation System:
  • Patented Ground-Noise Dissipation System greatly reduces ground-borne noise without compromising safety or creating low-level ground loops.

  • Transient Power Correction provides power amplifiers a current reservoir of over 55 amps peak (up to 25mS) for AC current transients.

  • Level-X Linear Noise-Dissipation Technology ensures the most consistent and widest bandwidth noise dissipation possible, without the inconsistent multi-node resonant peaking typically found in most AC power conditioners.

  • AQ-Formed AC RF Filtering Capacitors dramatically improve linearity and minimize distortions, while dissipating AC line and radio-coupled noise.

  • 7 Low-Z NRG Series AC Power outlets: 2 High-Current Low-Z Power; 5 Level-X Linear-Filtered Power (source components) outlets.

  • Non-Sacrificial Surge Protection will accept multiple transient power surges and spikes up to 6000V or 3000A without damage.

  • Over-Voltage Shutdown with Automatic Reset enacts shutdown at approximately 17% above optimal AC input levels, until the incoming AC voltage returns to a safe range.

Niagara 3000s NRG-Series AC outlets not only feature superior grip and lower resistance thanks to beryllium copper, they also include thick Hanging-Silver plating to ensure the lowest impedance at radio frequencies, enabling superior noise dissipation. And, of course, like all Niagara products, the slim 2-RU Niagara 3000 features direction-controlled ultra-low-resistance solid wiring and filter inductors optimized for the highest efficiency noise-dissipation of radio frequencies.
