GigaWatt PF-1 MkII 6x Powerboard w LC1 Power Cord

$1,750.00

or 6 weekly interest-free payments from $291.66 with Laybuy what's this?

The PF-1 MK2 power strip is equipped with six high quality power sockets GigaWatt G-040 Schuko, designed and manufactured by the company.

The brass connectors of those sockets were silver plated at the factory, without the usage of intermediary metals, like copper or nickel, which could introduce unfavorable series resistance and voltage loss. The increased area of contact and the thick layer of silver guarantee sure contact with the plug pins. The sockets were additionally subdued to cryogenic modification and a demagnetizing process. In order to effectively protect children, the G-040 sockets were equipped with integrated anti-surge shutters (increased protection against touching, conform with VDE 0620). The PF-1 MK2 is also available with outlets of type NEMA 5-20R, used in North America and some Asian countries, and with Australian outlets of type AS/NZS 3112.

Description

REVIEW – AUDIO-VIDEO SEPT 2008 – Marek Lacki

“…it cannot pass unnoticed, that given the price performance (and workmanship) relationship, especially the GigaWatt PF-1 stands out. Taking into account the price of the power cable, which must be purchased separately for the other strips, it comes at half the price of the competitors.” “This means, that for every zloty spent on the PF-1 we get the most and best sound. And in addition the protection of our valuable gear.

 

DETAILS

PF-1 MK2 is the improved version of the advanced filtering power strip designed to power and protect budget audio and video systems. In the PF-1 MK2 better materials and components were used, and the modified construction of the device is based on solutions used in the EVO series of power conditioners. This is a special product in the GigaWatt offering, because it surprises with its solid construction and craftsmanship quality at the given price, and with the positive influence on the sound.

The strip is made using high quality components. The distortion is filtered in a RLC filtering block. It is built using metalized polyester capacitors with low inductance and an IP (Iron Powder) filtering core. All components of the filters are soldered to a massive PCB with large cross-section of the traces, with silver solder.

In this strip we also resigned from using traditional protective elements, like wire or thermal fuses, which throttle the free flow of current to the protected circuits and by this have a negative influence on the sound. Protection against overvoltage and power surges is guaranteed by a multi-stage protection circuit, composed of plasma sparks and new generation of UltraMOV varistors. Those elements, working together with a well designed, modern power grid, warrant a complex protection against overcurrent and overvoltage.

The PF-1 MK2 uses an innovative current distribution system, being a proprietary development of the company. It is based on massive power distribution bars of 2nd generation, made of polished, high purity, cathode copper slabs (Cu-ETP). This system distributes the current directly to each pair of output sockets, using crimped and screw-tightened connections and cabling made from electrolytic copper wires with a cross-section of 2,5 QMM. The use of the star wiring topology and the high conductance and massive cross-section of about 30 QMM of each of the bars warrants an equal and stable power distribution regardless of the load on any of the strip’s outputs.

The massive and durable chassis of the strip is made from metal. This creates a perfectly closed shield, protecting the inside filter and power distribution system from RFI noise. The power strip is also equipped with a LED signalling proper function and power available on the sockets.

The strip is also equipped with a high quality IEC socket, allowing their user to connect any power cable. The power strip is equipped with the power cable LC1-Mk3 with 1.5m length. To fully utilize the maximum potential of the PF-1 MK2 we recommend the usage of the LC3 Mk3 or LC2 Mk3 power cable.

A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you’ve ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, “Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?”

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don’t fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don’t show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.

Concerned About Fraud?

The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating….

So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it’s genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
