Merlin Cables Dragon Mains Block
The reference quality Dragon mains distribution unit offers unrivalled levels of performance. Constructed in a full size 440mm case the Dragon is star parallel wired with our award winning HCT, IRC hybrid cores as featured in our Dragon mains cables.
The 440mm wide 2u case is fitted with a premium aluminium extruded front panel, special AVID isolation feet, Furutech gold inlet socket, 6 UK 1363 sockets and a Neutrik 20 amp outlet connector to allow an additional extension unit to be fitted. The unit is wired internally with the 18 of the amazing HCT Dragon cores to each socket in a star configuration. This offers a mayor advantage over a series configuration, no voltage drops on any of the outlets and even distribution of power. Each socket is individually filtered with our twin super NAS filters to stop cross contamination of components with RFI and EMI, ensuring cleaner power to each device. The block is fitted with a 16 amp Furutech IEC inlet allowing you to choose the specification of inlet cable to suit your requirements.
Here are some details on the cable we use for the internal wiring:-
The Dragon is constructed using 18 HCT, IRC high purity oxygen free copper conductors to each socket to low resistance and give greater current handing. The conductors are coated with our Inert resin Coating IRC to stop skin effect problems and are then coated with an extremely high grade LDPE which has a much better dielectric constant than the regular PVC used in on most mains cables.
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. The Dragon is fitted with our highest grade passive filters which drastically reduce interference that screening alone cannot remove and also minimising the leaked interference from your component power supply. It is designed to bring extended dynamics and vibrancy to all components as well as improved clarity to both sound and images.
You can fit optional DC filters to remove unwanted DC from the AC line, giving improved performance and allowing your equipment to perform as it was designed to do without the parasitic effects of rouge DC on your AC supply. You can fit either one on the inlet or up-to 6, one on each of the outlet sockets.
No inlet cable supplied as standard
