The SteinMusic Powerbar 6 and 10 Signature power distribution
Being passionate for what good music may give you, at SteinMusic we are focused on nothing else than getting to it as close as possible for the last 3 ½ decades.
We found that heading for the best possible performance it is essential to take great care for the smallest detail.
This means not do anything because it has always been done that way, but gain an understanding about the sonic implications of widely used techniques just as materials.
With this knowledge and by the use of proprietary unique solutions we have the skills to build balanced components which do not show their character, but are totally on duty getting you closer to the music.
Capacitors in the mains are widely used to get rid of noise. As everywhere in real life all which has positive sides also has cons. Capacitors are highly nonlinear, and their dielectric losses suck out finesse and detail from the music. You will get he same effects with inductors due to their core loss and dynamic limitations.
If you are using a standard audio system, all this may smooth out the sound, and make listening more enjoyable. Using a HighEnd audio system however, you might definately not want to risk the loss of any fine detail.
All connectors are custom made to our specifications, so that we may ensure a perfect sound as well as long term stability. For the contacts we choose a partly rhodium plating, which in combination of the whole concept gave us some more finesse and detail than a gold plated version.
The entire internal wiring is made of the purest copper. All outlets are star wired to a central point, and the orientation of each cable is chosen for the correct directivity.
SteinMusic Powerbars are very compact and rigid with a three layer CNC machined composite housing. The outer layers are made out of a special fiber board, where the dominant medium layer is a proprietary carbon composite compound, which ensures extreme stablity and warp resistance.
Furthermore, the carbon composite compound is grounded to avoid electrostatic charge.
The CNC machined aluminum top plate carrying the outlets is thoroughly large-area-mounted on the base to avoid unwanted resonance. The feet are made out of massive walnut-wood, a choice we made after extensive listening of a wide amount of different other solutions.
The star grounding connection really is one central point where all conductors are connected by our InLine technology. Here the vectors of the magnetic fields which are generated while a current is flowing through a conductor are completely random, which means the sum is zero.
This avoids magnetic distortion, resulting in a much more differentiated sound.
At this critical point we also apply a small amount of our proprietary quantum solution.
To protect this critical part and mechanically quiet down we seal it in a specially filled epoxy resin.
All wires and connectors are thoroughly demagnetized and additionally subjected to a plasma-treatment which significantly increases the movability of free electrons in all metal parts.
SteinMusic Powerbars are available with 6 or 10 sockets.
