The 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 highest performance balanced power system we make. Every component used in its construction has been selected from many years of performance testing in professional and consumer high definition A/V systems on both the analog and digital platforms. Each assembly component in the Model Q was chosen for its superior quality and performance -- cost was no object. For example, the material used in the Q transformer's core is made of a cutting edge state-of-the-art magnetic steel alloy and none is spared in fabrication. Even though the core material is the most efficient there is, the transformer in the Model Q still has twice the mass of competitive products. It drives amplifiers and other large current pulse type loads without blinking an eye. The AC power factor remains virtually stable regardless of the demand load. Mil-spec rated oxygen free copper is also 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 the bandwidth of noise attenuation. The Model Q's switches and circuit breakers are the finest of their kind and are duty rated for over 1/2 million operations. Every component used in the Model Q has been chosen because it is the best. There is nothing that compares in quality or in performance to a Model Q.

Even though the Son of Q is clearly superior to our competitor's products (and costs 1/2 the price), the benchmark standard of performance originates with the Model Q. Son of Q benefits from the trickle down technology developed over the years refining the Model Q, so Son of Q deserves its name. Both clearly stand above the rest. But make no mistake about it, the Model Q in all its variations and sizes is the gem of the balanced power industry. No balanced power product compares to the Model Q and they are built to last a lifetime. Equi=Tech has been making balanced power products longer than anyone in the industry, setting new standards in the field of power quality since the early '90s. There is no limit to how far we will go to raise the bar in power standards and audio-video quality. The Model Q is our flagship product.

There is nothing better than a Q for mastering. The characteristics of the Model Q's isolation transformer are ideal for full fidelity playback. Bass resolution is tightened up remarkably and many users have told us that they can actually hear an extra octave of bass that was previously inaudible, even beyond the Son of Q.In a. recording environment the 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 realism and add excitement to the mix. 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.There is nothing better for mastering than the Model Q. The difference between using a Model Q and any other AC power source is astonishing. ("I refuse to work in a studio without one." states Mr. Nichols.)

Model Q's can also drive a live sound system adding tightness to bass reproduction that is very difficult to achieve considering the various acoustical problems many rooms present. For an amplifier to accurately reproduce low frequency program material, it must have power on demand the instant it's needed. The consequences of lagging power delivery is a compressed and flat sounding amplifier with booming, bloated sounding bass. When an amplifier's power supply is rendered inefficient by poor power, it struggles to reproduce low frequency material and it logically follows that mid range and high frequency signals lose definition and accuracy as well. Poor power affects the full sound spectrum. Model Q's provide stable and reliable power quality so your gear will sound as good at noon in an office building as it does at 3AM in the studio. Model Q's level the playing field whenever and wherever they are used.

The Model Q has a simple but 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 input and the output.The input power LED also doubles as a TVSS status light that indicates active surge protection when lit.On rare occasion if it stops working and the output LED still works, that means that the surge protector has taken a large voltage spike and has expired. In the rare event that this happens, the Model Q's grounded Faraday shield maintains excellent backup surge protection until the TVSS is replaced.

On the rear panel, there are 12 AC outlets provided. One GFCI outlet is independent from the front standby switch 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.

Model Q's are offered in 5 different sizes ranging from 1 to 5kVA load capacities. Most Model Q's that are rated at 2kVA or less require a 120 Volt supply circuit to operate. (The 2RQ-EA requies 208/240 Volts.) 3kVA and 5kVA models require a 208 or 240 Volt supply. The chart below indicates the circuit size and standard plug type used to connect the Model Q to the power outlet.
