Synergistic Research – PowerCell 8 UEF
The goal of the PowerCell 8 UEF was to create a non-current limiting, compact power conditioner to rival the world’s best sounding, largest, and most expensive line conditioners, and we’ve succeeded!
For the PowerCell 8 UEF we adapted our 6th generation electromagnetic cell, originally engineered for the new PowerCell 12 UEF, to fit a compact chassis. Our patented EM Cell Technology now features Graphene—a near superconductor at room temperature—to deliver clean unlimited power filtered outside of the signal path through an active inductive process. Plug and Play: unlike previous PowerCells with outboard MPC power supplies, the PowerCell 8’s EM Cell is powered by an onboard, Swiss-made power supply that adds dynamic headroom and lowers a system’s noise floor to increase EM Cell performance dramatically. Fitted with 4 SR HD wall outlets and powered by an included Black UEF power cable with Graphene, the PowerCell 8 UEF is the highest performance compact chassis line conditioner in the world.
Don’t let the compact design fool you. PowerCell 8 UEF delivers a big soundstage with micro-detail while fitting discreetly behind your component rack, saving you valuable shelf space. And to bring the highest level of resolution, double down on component-to-component isolation and A/C filtering by plugging the PowerCell 8 UEF into a PowerCell 12 UEF. Then connect your nosiest digital components like hard drives, computers and monitors into the PowerCell 8 UEF with the balance of your system plugged into a PowerCell 12 UEF for the ultimate in AC filtration and digital to analogue component isolation.
When high-powered components—such as Mono Block amplifiers—require instantaneous power, the non-current-limiting PowerCell 8 UEF delivers. Equipped with a 20 amp IEC input receptacle and four high definition duplexes, electricity will flow unimpeded to and from the internal EM cell. In addition, the high current 12 gauge, silver matrix, multi-stranded wire allows a pristine origin for your audio system’s performance.
