Product Information

The King is Dead – Long Live the King!

Actually, the King lives on but stronger and more useful than ever. The incredibly effective and amazingly well-received Niagara 1000 is being upgraded to the simply-better Niagara 1200.

The most obvious difference between the Niagaras 1000 and 1200, other than the 1200’s gorgeous textured bright finish, are the more universally useful shape and surprisingly substantial weight. The 1200 can now sit on a shelf like a component, with all the in and out cables in the back. It can be used ‘face’ down with the outlets in the air, fitting much better in the space between furniture and the wall. And, the 1200 is designed to stand on one end.

The new 7th outlet is a High-Current outlet: Now those with a subwoofer, mono amps, or powered speakers, can enjoy the full High-Current benefit that was only available to a single component with the Niagara 1000.

Like the Niagaras 1000, 5000, and 7000, the Niagara 1200 uses capacitor forming technologies that vastly improve linearity and minimize distortion, ultra-low resistance solid-core wiring optimized for low-noise directionality, and low-impedance AC inlet and outlet contacts with heavy Hanging-Silver plating over high-purity Beryllium Copper for superior noise dissipation. The Niagara 1200 includes AudioQuest’s patented Ground-Noise Dissipation System for a full 18 octaves of Linear Noise-Dissipation.

Common to all Niagara products, the 1200 features our nonsacrificial surge protection and over-voltage shutdown, ensuring that all associated A/V systems are thoroughly protected from AC surges and spikes.



  • 7 AC outlet: 2 high-current; 5 linear-filtered
  • Withstands surges and spikes up to 6000V/3000A

I highly recommend the Audioquest Niagra 1200.
I was a skeptical for a long time. The idea that a power strip could make my stereo sound better was a tough pill to swallow. Recently during a storm we had a brown out. My cheap surge protector worked as it should have. However afterwards it stopped working. I started to read more about the sonic benefits of a power strip that had surge protection and power conditioning. I read several reviews about Audioquest Niagra products. All were consistently positive. I took a chance on the Niagra 1200 figuring that I could return it if I was not satisfied. After plugging it in with an Audioquest NRG Z3 power cable that I purchased separately, it was easy to plug all of my components into the outlets. I used the two “special” outlets for my Denon AV receiver and Prima Luna Dialogue Premium integrated amplifier. I plugged my Turntable, phono preamplifier, cable box, DAC, and Blue Ray Player into the other outlets.
The first thing that I noticed was how much clearer the dialogue was on network TV, movies, and music. It was if someone took a veil off the sound. The lows sounded a bit lower and tighter. The transitions from mids to highs sounded smoother. Things sounded more lively but also slightly less harsh.

awesome product. Its a must have in any audio system. You won't regret. Better dynamics due to a lower noise floor.

Blown away
First thing I heard right off was super quiet noise floor.. Bass improved dramatically. The added clarity to vocals. The highs just float into the room.. I would recommend this to a seasoned audiophile.

Well built you can see and feel the quality
Sizable difference from the ps audio dectet I had been using and the noise floor has dropped
