The MPC-12A has two independent zones of 6 outlets each, for a total of 12 outlets. This allows for the normal segregation of analog and digital components or between amplifiers and source components. The "A" designation stands for audio although it can also be used in all forms of audio/video systems. The two isolated zones will be labeled "A/V Zone 1" and "A/V Zone 2”.
At the core of the MPC-12A are Shunyata’s latest generation of CCI™ (Component-to-Component Interference) filters. These powerful multi-frequency noise-filters provide exceptional isolation for electronics without interfering with DTCD™ (Dynamic Transient Current Delivery) or electronics power supply function. The MPC-12 "A" has none of the drawbacks commonly associated with traditional forms “power conditioning” yet provides all of the protection and noise isolation that benefit electronics systems of all types.
Complementing the superior noise isolation in the MPC-12 "A" are dual 12 gauge OFE 101 copper conductors. This massive 9 gauge aggregate conductor set insures optimum DTCD™ performance for any and all high-current draw systems. Surge and spike protection are included in the form of Shunyata Research'’s Surge module, which has had a virtually zero failure rate since its inception. Putting these elements together in a 12 outlet, form-follows-function package makes the MPC-12 "A" an incredible value. For those looking at the next big step-up from Shunyata Research’s critically heralded PS-8 power distributor, the MPC-12 "A" delivers on that promise.
The MPC-12 “A” and “C” models also feature on-board surge, spike and over-current protection with a built-in status L.E.D. indicator.
