QSA Violet AC Receptacle

The Proof Lies In The Hearing


Users of the QSA Violet outlet are raving. Expect a larger soundstage, more inner detail, and a more natural sounding presentation. The Violet QSA AC has been crushing the most popular brands and models of AC receptacles out there by a wide margin. We like the QSA AC receptacles because once they are installed, they just work. If you have been hesitant to try the QSA fuses because of the risk of blowing a fuse, the QSA AC receptacles come very close to the performance of the fuses, without the risk. Powering a system that already has QSA fuses with the QSA receptacles advances performance by a significant measure.

Top Tip

If you think you need to replace all of the outlets in your power conditioner or distributor, you would be wrong. The single most effective use of the receptacle is in the wall. It will benefit your entire system, even if you are running a power conditioner downstream. Our hypothesis is whatever noise it is blocking, it is taking a huge burden off of one's existing power conditioner by eliminating noise at the wall. We aren't kidding, this will be a shocking upgrade.

After 22 years of research and development, QSA Has launched a series of audio enhancing products that are confounding listeners with the level of performance improvement that they are attaining with these modest looking devices. Through their proprietary processes and treatments, these normal looking outlets and fuses are transformed into paradigm shifting audio products.

Using the same processes and treatments as their highly regarded fuses, Quantum Science Audio are applying similar treatment to their line of AC receptacles. The colored hierarchy is much the same as well.Their sonic effects on components plugged into the AC receptacles are also similar, and even more beneficial if you have QSA fuses in your components.

The Violet fuse can outperform any other AC receptacle on the market, except of course for their higher performance AC receptacles. That is our guarantee. We do offer a power distributor with a Violet AC receptacle installed for in-home auditions.

What You Will Hear

With All QSA Products the first thing you will notice is that the top end will open up with a sense of relaxation and ease. Then more information, more separation, more harmonics, and greater dynamics. There is just a rightness, a wholeness when there should be wholeness, and separation when it occurs naturally. Bass will be quicker, dynamic, and have more detail. Voices and instruments will appear more transparent but with more harmonic realism, flesh/wood/brass tone, and focus. The Violet possesses more of these attributes than the Yellow, with perhaps a touch more dynamic realism, and a touch more low end energy. One can easily hear this without straining. As you move up the line, you just get more. At times you might not think more exists, but it does. Everything you play, I don't care how bad, harsh or fatiguing the recording, it will sound better and in many cases, it will actually be listenable rather than fatiguing.

A Word On Break In

Initially, the AC receptacle will be a little strident, but will settle in over the next few days.


Q:I already have (insert brand name here) power conditioner. How will a wall receptacle improve the sound if the AC has to run through the power conditioner before getting to the components?

A:All I can say is it does. It makes a system wide, huge difference. Even though the AC coming from the wall receptacle has to flow through all of the filtering of the power conditioner. Whatever the QSA receptacles are doing to eliminate noise, your power conditioner is not filtering the same noise, and it will not hinder the performance of the QSA receptacle. Your power conditioner and the QSA receptacle are working on two different levels, and types of noise. I guarantee you will hear a difference.

Q: Should I get rid of my power conditioner then?

A: Maybe, but probably not. As I said, power conditioners provide RF filtering, and other benefits. The QSA receptacles seem to work on different types of noise. All I know is that there is a significant improvement in the sound, even if you keep your power conditioner. I would say experiment if you have the option to. Perhaps even audition one of Tweek Geek's QSA power distributors along with the wall receptacle.
