The Equitech Model Q is Equi=Tech’s flagship product. It is the result of many years of experience and application research in the field of balanced AC power. It is highest quality and the best performing balanced power system they have ever offered. Every component specified in its design has been selected from years of research and testing in professional and consumer high definition A/V systems in both analog and digital formats. Each component used in the Model Q was chosen for its superior quality and performance and cost was no object. For example, the material used in the Model Q transformer core is made of a state-of-the-art magnetic steel alloy and none is spared in fabrication. The core material is the most efficient there is, nevertheless the Model Q transformer has twice the mass of similarly rated competitive products. It drives amplifiers and other high current pulse type loads without skipping a beat. Power factor remains virtually stable regardless of the type of demand load. Military spec oxygen free copper is used throughout the Model Q assembly to further reduce random high frequency current distortion. This improves an already near perfect mirror image output and further widens its range of noise attenuation. The Equitech Model Q’s switches and circuit breakers are the finest made and they are duty rated for over 1/2 million operations. Every component part used in the Model Q has been selected because it is the best of its kind. There is nothing that compares in quality or performance to the Equitech Model Q.
In a recording environment, the most obvious difference is an extremely low noise floor that permits hotter tracking across the board. To a professional, capturing low level detail is essential to create a live environment and add excitement to the mix. (Often they pay for themselves in downtime saved from troubleshooting noise gremlins in the studio.) Because of a substantially lower noise floor, mikes can be tracked much hotter without annoying noise or hiss to mask detail in low level signals. Outboard racks run "quiet as a clam" (to quote Mr. Roger Nichols) and musician's racks almost never bring noise into the studio. These systems have been measured to reduce digital jitter by as much as 67% which is unheard of in any digital environment without balanced power. The only thing better for mastering is the Equitech Model Q for hearing a full range mix.
Equitech Model Q is rack mount, Balanced Power Unit ideal for Mastering but is more than suitable for other recording and mixing studio alike. The Model Q is available in a couple of different models. Not sure, which is the best model for you? Contact Us
There are just a couple of factors that determine which Equitech Unit is right for you. A lot of it depends on how much and the type of gear that currently occupies your studio or home listening environment.

Equitech Model Q has a simple yet elegant appearance. It features an anodized aluminum front panel that is available in black or silver. A front panel LED voltmeter indicates voltage at the input or output depending on the position of the voltmeter mode switch (IN-OFF-OUT) There is one blue LED indicator light above the input power switch and one above each output standby switch indicating power status at both the input and the output. The input power LED also doubles as a TVSS status light that indicates active surge protection when lit. In the rare event that it stops working and the output LED still works, this indicates that the surge protector has taken too many nuisance voltage spikes and its days are done. In the rare event that this occurs, the Model Q’s grounded Faraday shields provide excellent redundant surge protection until the TVSS module can be replaced and it is an inexpensive and easy thing to do.
On the rear panel, there are 12 AC outlets provided (more in the larger versions.) One GFCI outlet is independent from the front standby switch(es) and is constantly left turned on for use with components that require continuous power for a clock or to maintain volatile memory. Of the 10 remaining outlets, 6 (white) are for analog components such as amplifiers and pre amps and 4 (gray) are specially filtered outlets for digital components. A circuit breaker on the rear panel protects the system from overload and from potential short circuit fire hazards in electrical power cords and downstream connected equipment.
