The AudioQuest PowerQuest 505 is a high-performance power conditioner with 12 AC outlets (4 High-Current outlets for amplifiers and 8 Ultra-Linear-Filtered outlets for source components), a 2m detachable AC power cable featuring ZERO-Tech and RF/ND-Tech, and 2RU rack ears for simple rack-mounting. PowerQuest ensures clean power, optimizes audio/video performance, and provides steadfast protection. Simply set it and forget it.
Detachable PQ-715 Cable
The detachable PQ-715 cable uses AudioQuest’s high-purity Semi-Solid Long-Grain Copper conductor metal in which strands are packed more tightly and never change position within the bundle, significantly reducing strand-interaction distortion. Long-Grain Copper further minimizes distortion caused by grain boundaries that exist within any metal conductor. A fundamental aspect of AudioQuest's multifaceted Noise-Dissipation technology, Direction-Controlled Conductors ensure induced noise is dissipated and drained properly — away from the system’s vulnerable circuitry. AudioQuest’s ZERO-Tech ensures uncompressed current transfer and linearized noise-dissipation; RF/ND-Tech minimizes circuit misbehavior by canceling induced RF noise.
The PowerQuest 505’s important protection features include Non-Sacrificial Surge Protection and Extreme Voltage Shutdown, keeping itself and valuable components safe from common daily micro-spikes as well as potentially catastrophic power surges. Non-Sacrificial Surge Protection withstands multiple strikes of 6000V or 3000A — the maximum that can survive through a building’s AC electrical panel — without damage. Extreme Voltage Shutdown activates the main circuit relay in under 0.25 seconds when presented with 140VAC, and automatically resets once that incoming voltage is within a safe range.
