Gordian – Your system deserves clean and abundant power
Whatever your audio system setup is, clean and abundant
power is the nutrition that will make it reveal its strength and virtuousness.
It is well known that an inadequate power distributor may kill the dynamics
of your audio system and that a noisy AC power line could affect
its performance on midrange and high frequency signals.
Gordian is here to distribute all the power that your system may
need even at extreme situations without losing its strength. It is also
here to gently clean up the unwanted artifacts from your power supply
well-designed,adaptive network of inductors and MKP capacitors.
Conductors of very large cross section,
high quality tight sockets and industrial grade bindings constitute
the unshakable electrical network that delivers the power to your
system. The “star” topology of the inner connections reduces to the
minimum the noise transfer between you devices while guarantees
that no ground loops will be developed.
A serious power analyzer
Gordian cares about the quality of your power source more than you think.
It incorporates an industrial grade power analyzer which lets you
inspect all the aspects of the AC power signal. Some of the available
• Frequency (accuracy 0.0005%)
• Total Harmonic Distortion (THD - accuracy 0.005%)
• RMS Voltage/Current
• Power Consumption
• Power Factor
• FFT (Frequency analysis)
• DC Voltage
You can use these metrics to trace the AC signal of your provider,
inspect the power consumption of your audio system,
investigate problems on your local electric network
(eg find household devices that affect the quality of your power source)
or decide on the optimal filtering mode
(see Configurable noise filtering below).
All the information is accessible in the big legible OLED display.
Configurable noise filtering - Power factor correction
All kinds of noise cannot be treated effectively by the same
type of filters and overusing multiple types of filters for healing
all the types of possible artifacts on the power line would definitely
affect the dynamics and the character of your audio system.
For this reason, Gordian filtering network is designed to be
configurable giving you the opportunity to adapt it to the
problems of your AC power line by selecting the most
appropriate available configuration.
The user manual of Gordian contains a complete configuration
guide that will help you select the most appropriate mode by
teaching you how to interpret correctly the extensive information
you get from the integrated power analyzer. However,
if you trust you ears more than mathematics you could just
experiment with the various configurations and keep your favorite one.
Gordian can also improve the power factor of your system
by applying a bank of specialized capacitors in parallel with
your system power line. This will correct the apparent power
phase angle, which means that your system will absorb more
effectively the power of your power line.
Automated adaption to the problems of your power line
If you don’t want to bother configuring the filtering mode at all,
you can set Gordian to “Auto Adapt” mode and let it choose
the optimal filtering configuration for you by mathematically
analyzing the power characteristics of your line.
