I myself have never come across any hifi component that could so unite the opinion of such a wide spectrum of audiophiles, who not only praise it but also put their money where their mouth is by installing at least one unit of the Power Bank in their system. Many are so enamoured that they do not stop at just one, but have gone on to their second and even third units. The demand for the Power Bank has been outstripping supply, so it was certainly my good luck that Frankie agreed to send me a completed unit temporarily for this writeup. The Power Bank is built into a very sturdy chassis that is suitable for a power amplifier. It had to be, as the finished product is as heavy as or heavier than many power amplifiers.

A motto, perhaps, that should be framed and nailed to the wall of every audiophile in the world. Allow me to explain. Every sound that emanates from our loudspeakers, we are really listening to our power supply. That power supply comes from the wall and into our equipment. One way is by using filtering capacitors. The juice that comes direct from the wall is notorious for being unstable. Here where I live, V is the nominal voltage, but we often get upwards of V regularly, and sometimes this number spikes up to as high as V momentarily. My Purepower AC regenerator has a readout that shows just how unstable this supply is.
Frank Acoustics PB-15000Ws Power Bank Storage
Shunt reactors are typically used as an absorber of reactive energy employed to increase efficiency of power generating systems. It is the most compact of devices available commonly for reactive power compensation in long distance high-voltage transmission line cabling. Thus, I asked for a home demonstration. Upon installation and without any warming up to my audio system, I noticed immediately the quietness in the background of the whole musical presentation. Then and there I told the team that I was already impressed. They advised me that after six hours, I will be even more impressed.
How it works. The shunt reactor is an absorber of reactive power, thus increasing the energy efficiency of the system. It is the most compact device commonly used for reactive power compensation in long high-voltage transmission lines and in cable system. Frank Acoustics has modified this system using a proprietary system for domestic abodes. The Frank Power Bank Storage component is essentially a scaled down version of this unique system for maintaining AC power to your Hi-fi system. Current Capacity:. Transformer :.
