Equi=Tech has been making balanced power products since the early 90s, setting new standards in the field of balanced AC power. The Model Q, Equi=Tech’s flagship product, is the result of these many years of experience.

Anyone who believes that power quality isn’t an important factor in recreating exciting, realistic, and accurate sound is seriously mistaken. If you haven’t heard your sound system with a Model Q powering it, you are missing something truly great. You might just find yourself replaying all of your old music again and again; it's as if hearing it for the first time with a new appreciation for detail, clarity, and remarkable bass definition. Source components and amplifiers benefit equally the Model Q's power. It also brings out the best in high definition audio/video components The Model Q is simply the most highly-refined, accurate, and effective power source on the planet. You owe it to yourself to see and hear why Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Sony Records, JPL/NASA, California Institute of Technology, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and most every professional A/V production company has chosen Model Q technology for their sensitive components.

An Award-Winning Power Conditioner

When the Model Q was first shown at the 2002 San Francisco Home Entertainment Show, it's demo room was voted “Best Sound of Show” by the show attendees. It won by a landslide margin over the 2nd place finisher. Then, after consecutively winning that prestigious award twice more, show's sponsors canceled the “Best Sound of Show” voting completely. When an Equi=Tech Model Q is present in the room, it’s just not fair to the competition.

Many studios are currently using Equi=Tech and their client list includes Atlantic Records, Microsoft, Sony, NASA, The Library Of Congress, FOX Broadcasting, ABC Sports, Cirque du Soleil, UCLA, & More.
