General:

Today’s AC power lines are littered with the byproduct from countless noise inducing devices. The MPC1500 Power Controller can shield your home audio components from this noise as well as protect it from power surges. With the MPC1500, you can provide clean, consistent power to your home audio system, enabling it to deliver its best possible sonic performance.

At the heart of the MPC1500 is a large but quiet toroidal isolation transformer that has been specially wound to act as a low pass filter to remove unwanted noise from the AC line. The MPC1500 also employs a quick-acting surge suppression module that activates when the voltage reaches approximately 2V above nominal operating levels. This excess voltage is slowly and harmlessly released to the circuit’s neutral wire rather than the ground wire, where it could still find its way to your audio components and cause damage. Unlike surge protection devices that use other suppression methods or “power conditioners,” the MPC1500’s suppression module is not sacrificial and will not need replacing after a surge event.

The MPC1500 comes with either 6 medical grade Type B1 (a.k.a. NEMA 5-15R) duplex receptacles, or 6 high quality Type F1 (a.k.a. CEE 7/3 or “Schuko”) single receptacles. Only the appropriate version is available in each individual country to ensure compatibility with local power systems. Two of the receptacles are always active when the MPC1500 is plugged in. Control of the other 4 receptacles can be configured to your preferences via the rear panel Power Control switches. LED indicators on both the front and back show the current in-use state of each receptacle.

Our blue Watt meters have been repurposed to show the real time incoming voltage and the actual current draw of the connected devices. The meters will be scaled to the correct amperage and voltage based on the local country (e.g. the voltage meter will be scaled to 250 for countries that use the Type F receptacle). Regardless if the unit has Type B or Type F receptacles, all versions of the MPC1500 feature the timeless McIntosh black glass front panel with blue meters, an illuminated logo, control knobs, and aluminum end caps. Contact your local dealer to learn more.
