The Nordost Quantum QBASE QB8 distribution block (available with Euro or US sockets) is the longest Nordost distribution block, with 8 outlets, an ideal alternative to the QB4 or QB6 if you need more outlets and have Euro or US plug mains cables. QBASE QB8 features Nordost's Quantum resonance technology, which offers a greater level protection against noise and interference compared to passive or active mains filters.
Much like the QB4 and QB4, the QB8 is based on a straight-line AC distribution path, combined with a star-earthed topology for connection to a clean ground. By eliminating any form of in-line filtering or active circuitry, it maintains the lowest possible AC supply impedance, while a tiny lift in the earth impedance of all but one of the output sockets routes the signal grounds directly to the centre of the star and the clean earth terminal.
Clearly identified on the casework, this Primary Earth socket is at the centre of your system’s performance, literally and metaphorically. It defines both the order in which you connect your components and also, their listening priority in your musical enjoyment, allowing you to further optimize the performance of your primary sources.
The QB8 can be plugged directly into your wall socket, but for best results, we recommend using a QX2 or QX4 inbetween the QB8 and mains supply.
