More about the Peak Absorption Modules

The Peak Absorption Module is the core component of the Peak Speaker Connection and Peak Mains Connection System, providing the bulk of the RFI/EMI and vibration absorption capability. Fundamental to our design methodology was to provide a fully flexible solution that allows for the use of third-party cabling with our products in addition to our own cabling options.

The module body is machined from a solid block of aluminium allowing for a unique non-resonant design. Meticulous attention to detail has been employed to ensure that the case itself helps to drain unwanted microphonic signals that cause damage to the audio signal. The block itself goes through a three-step process to produce an unrivalled finish.

With usability firm in our design principles, we have designed the Peak modules to be used in a modular approach. To do this, the modules can be placed on top of each other in order to preserve space but in a way where they remain stable and that they are not coupled together. Once the specially selected feet are sited in the carefully machined “pockets” on the top of the other module, they remain stable and de-coupled. Extremely important when the goal is to ensure that sub-system isolation is the goal! Internally the module contains a complex anti-vibration labyrinth in addition to significant RFI and EMI reduction techniques.

All internal conductors are solid-core silver, insulated with air-tube Teflon and subjected to our proprietary EMI absorption treatment. Even the braiding has been extensively researched and we have employed an outer sheath that acts as an acoustic block to unwanted vibration down the outside of the cable. To connect your existing speaker cable or our own specially developed Quiescent cable, the module is fitted with high quality connections.

What is really important about the Peak Absorption Modules, however, is the volume of EMI and acoustic absorption technology we are able to deploy. A unique approach to dealing with RF energy is also implemented which simply drains the systems of higher frequency noise without impacting the musicality of the signal. The result is detailed phase information and accuracy of reproduction being greatly enhanced bringing realism and excitement to the music.

Having won the Audio Excellence Award from Hifi Critic for our Peak Speaker Connection System, we have been completing the Peak Mains Connection System and Peak and Apex Interconnects to provide a system-wide approach to dealing with microphonic interference and damaging and EMI/RF noise. All these elements have been designed to allow enthusiast to insert proven technology into systems that already have elegant cabling options built in but also to benefit from our cabling technology that further enhances the approach to lowering noise to almost unnoticeable levels.
