Merlin Cables Black Widow 6 Way Mains Block
This block is available with either UK, Schuko or US outlet sockets.
The new Black widow 6 way mains block is the entry level in our range of star wired mains distribution mains units.
It is a premium aluminium extruded mains block, fitted with mounting ears which can either be screwed to the wall or onto a 19inch rack. The unit is fitted with the latest volt/amp meter display to help you monitor your mains supply and show the current draw for your system in use and standby. The unit is star wired, meaning the sockets are connected in parallel to ensure each item of equipment receives the same high quality power supply with no voltage drops normally associated with series connected units.
The block is fitted with a 10 amp IEC inlet allowing you to choose the specification of inlet cable to suit your requirements.
The radiated and transmitted RF and Em Interference channelled into the equipment by regular mains cables tends to manifest itself as distortion of image or picture on AV equipment or loss of focus on audio so it is essential as much is removed as possible and at the same time lower the resistance of the circuit to increase dynamics. What makes Black Widow different to a Tarantula mains unit is the inclusion of our star wiring system which drastically reduce interaction between components and reduces voltage drops.
No inlet cable supplied as standard This block is available with either UK, Schuko or US outlet sockets.
I just wanted a good quality mains block without spending a fortune or all the hype some brands profess their product can do.The Merlin Cables Black Widow is well made and solid and for under a £100 gives great value.I don't see the point of spending hundreds of pounds on certain accessories product that will last and the Merlin should do that., I just want good value

I confess I did not expect too big an improvement on sound just by changing my mains block... Boy, was I wrong! The BW cleaned up the sound A LOT, as if I had upgraded my cd player or my amp! And the dynamics are amazing. Now I realize the old cheap computer surge protector I was using was bottlenecking my whole system. I am converted to the "mains thing"... The Merlin BW mains block is a no-brainer for any budget-midprice hifi setup!
