Performance

Astounding critics and consumers alike, Quiescent’s couplers ground your system by draining high-frequency noise from your system’s chassis and eliminating mechanical vibration. Deployed in sets of three per audio separate, the improvements are significant across the entire frequency spectrum without compromising the musical signal.

Technology

The purpose of any coupler is to remove unwanted vibration from the chassis of your equipment. Most conventional couplers are regular shapes such as cylinders, cones or cubes. Although easy to produce, these shapes have an inherently resonant acoustic behaviour. This behaviour can be heard in the form of improvement in high-end frequencies at the cost of losing bass performance or vice-versa. Quiescent’s Apex Couplers improve sound quality across the board, using patented technology to ensure no degradation of the music.

Specifications

Component Couplers are available in three different configurations, Apex40, Apex50 and Apex60. The Apex40 is the smallest coupler, standing at 40mm high. The Apex60, at 60mm high,  is the ultimate in equipment isolation, capable of supporting the heaviest components such as power supplies and large amplifiers.

Technology

The purpose of any coupler is to remove unwanted vibration from the chassis of your equipment. Most conventional couplers are regular shapes such as cylinders, cones or cubes. Although easy to produce, these shapes have an inherently resonant acoustic behaviour. This behaviour can be heard in the form of improved high-end frequencies at the cost of losing bass performance or vice-versa. In contrast to this, the Apex coupler has non-parallel sides and disruptive surfaces that eliminate these problematic sonic characteristics. We then incorporate a low acoustic impedance spike which is connected to a disruptive internal labyrinth to create a support that is a highly effective acoustic drain.

The tip of the coupler is made from the hardest stainless steel available and couples electrically with the component chassis. The other end of the spike is directly coupled to a proprietary wide-band, multi-phase filter. This arrangement, combined with our patented EMI/RFI technology, drains unwanted RFI from the electronic component, where it is safely dissipated inside the coupler.

The reduction in the chassis noise floor is considerable, resulting in a substantial performance increase. Critics have universally agreed that there are significant improvements in timing, bass, separation of instruments and vocals, image placement and transparency throughout the entire frequency range previously thought impossible.
