SHAKTI On-Lines use a specially engineered circuit adapted from the larger SHAKTI Stabilizer. The On-Lines provide efficient EMI reduction in situations where limited space is a consideration. Placed near automotive CPU's, the On-Lines have demonstrated the same horsepower improvements as the Stabilizer. In some applications even closer proximity to chips is realized. In audio systems the On-Lines are typically used on all system cables (interconnects, speaker wire, AC cords and video cables). Placement is near the approximate center and/or connection points. In addition many users who build or modify their own equipment are placing On-Lines on or near critical internal circuit parts such as DAC chips, capacitors and internal wiring. Placement in all situations is facilitated by self-adhering Velcro circles that are placed on the cable or component to be treated. The On-Lines have matching Velcro on them that allows easy attachment or removal.
Shakti ON-LINES provide an improved level of clarity for all audio/video system cables and increased enjoyment of both music and movies. Since the days of Edison, modern technology has pushed the limits of music reproduction, however with every advancement there are new challenges. Today's audio components and cables have extended frequency response well beyond the audio bandwidth of 20Hz to 20,000Hz, providing a more realistic reproduction of the music. Unfortunately, this wider frequency bandwidth also increases the susceptibility of your system to both self-generated and external noise.
Shakti products are designed to minimize the deleterious effects of Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) on your audio system, enhancing your investment and appreciation.
Introduced in 1994, the Shakti Stone improved audio performance, much like Dolby noise reduction and specialty cables did in the 1970s and 1980s. Utilizing patented trap circuits based on the principles that govern the coupling effects of electromagnetic fields, Shakti Stones successfully addressed the problems of EMI in audio components. Computer, communications and medical equipment, which typically operate well above the audio bandwidth, must be certified by independent testing labs for adequate EMI shielding. These same labs have verified the Shakti Stone's effectiveness in substantially reducing EMI*. Overwhelming world-wide acceptance of the Shakti Stone by audio designers, reviewers and music lovers further attest to this success.
Now, using a specially engineered and adapted circuit developed from the Shakti Stone, Shakti ON-LINES reduce unwanted noise in A/V system cables. Standing wave reflections or "ringing" in cables are a self-generated phenomena caused by the differences in the impedance of components connected at either end of the cables. A series of resonant peaks occur at various points along the cables, the largest peak occurring near the mid-point of the cable run. The patented ON-LINES trap circuit consists of a unique application of tuned quartz resonators. Unlike the typical single resonant frequency devices used in radio, computers and quartz locked servos, Shakti developed a series of broad spectrum, frequency optimized resonators. This approach successfully absorbs the unpredictable EMI reflections different cable and component combinations can generate. The ON-LINES have no direct effect on signals originating in or near the audio spectrum (the music). ON-LINES dissipate only the non-audio electromagnetic reflections and their accompanying standing waves before they can intermodulate with the music waveform, preventing unwanted noise from contaminating the music.
The ON-LINES are simple and easy to use. Sold in pairs, one per channel is attached to the cable being treated. No disconnection of existing wires or grounding is required. You don't even have to shut off your equipment. Easy attachment at the approximate mid-point of the cable is facilitated via the easily adjustable straps. The ON-LINES provide increased resolution, dynamics and imaging accuracy. These benefits are audible on all levels of cabling from the least to the most expensive designs and are compatible with other cable enhancement products. In addition to audio interconnects, speaker wires, ac power cords and video cables, the Shakti technology inside the ON-LINES allows for various other applications including use on AC socket cover plates, turntable motors, speaker crossovers, virtually anywhere a Shakti Stone is impractical due to its larger size.
