MPC-12C & MPC-12A Packages
The VENOM MPC-12 is similar in function to our traditional power distributors in that it is intended for normal audio and video systems that are not specifically computer based audio systems.
The VENOM MPC-12 "C" is designed specifically for computer-audio, video and music-server based systems. Computer-media based music systems use several digital or processing components associated with computers (server). These devices are often made with commodity power supplies that put out significant amounts of power line noise. The MPC-12C was designed specifically to segregate or “firewall” the computer or video related components -- preventing them from polluting the performance of your high-end analog components.
The MPC-12 "C" is Shunyata Research’s most finely tuned power distributor in terms of its system specific design and function. Essentially, the MPC-12 contains two separate power conditioners starting from the power inlet. In section one, The MPC-12 "C" uses Shunyata’s finest CCI™ (Component-to-Component Interference) filter arrays to reduce noise and enhance performance while still allowing for maximum current-delivery to even the most power hungry amplifiers.
The other side of the MPC-12 "C", employs a custom-manufactured hand-wound air coil which literally fire-walls intense computer or video generated noise from affecting the components plugged into the second bank of six high-current/Analog outlets.
The MPC-12A has two independent zones of 6 outlets each, for a total of 12 outlets. This allows for the normal segregation of analog and digital components or between amplifiers and source components. The "A" designation stands for audio although it can also be used in all forms of audio/video systems. The two isolated zones will be labeled "A/V Zone 1" and "A/V Zone 2”.
At the core of the MPC-12 "A"are Shunyata’s latest generation of CCI™ (Component-to-Component Interference) filters. These powerful multi-frequency noise-filters provide exceptional isolation for electronics without interfering with DTCD™ (Dynamic Transient Current Delivery) or electronics power supply function. The MPC-12 "A" has none of the drawbacks commonly associated with traditional forms “power conditioning” yet provides all of the protection and noise isolation that benefit electronics systems of all types.
Complementing the superior noise isolation in the MPC-12 "A" are dual 12 gauge OFE 101 copper conductors. This massive 9 gauge aggregate conductor set insures optimum DTCD™ performance for any and all high-current draw systems. Surge and spike protection are included in the form of Shunyata Research'’s Surge module, which has had a virtually zero failure rate since its inception. Putting these elements together in a 12 outlet, form-follows-function package makes the MPC-12 "A" an incredible value. For those looking at the next big step-up from Shunyata Research’s critically heralded PS-8 power distributor, the MPC-12 "A" delivers on that promise.
For those with the audio-systems that combine one or two digital components such as a CD player or Transport and DAC, the MPC-12 "A" model makes the most sense. For those with computer audio or video centric systems, the MPC-12 "C" is the best choice.
The MPC-12 “A” and “C” models also feature on-board surge, spike and over-current protection with a built-in status L.E.D. indicator.
For a limited time, we are offering complete high-performance power-distribution packages on the MPC-12 series of power conditioners. These are available on both the MPC-12A and MPC-12C. This all-in-one package includes the high-performance option of the High-Current VENOM-HC, DELTA NR or ALPHA NR power cable and the new SSF-38 (stainless steel feet). Please see details below.
