Oyaide MTB-4 R-1 Power Distributor
The Oyaide MTB-4(R-1) is designed for the Purist: Clean and Integrated Structure. Fitted with Oyaide R-1 Beryllium receptacles.
Note: The R1 Receptacles are white in color. Picture shows other outlets.
Resonance characteristics of the chassis dominate the eventual sound quality of audio equipment. With this in mind, and with 25 years at the leading edge of audio innovation, Oyaide simplified the structure of the MTB-4 and MTB-6 to a minimum in order to avoid internal resonance - since every little component has its own resonance frequency.
Oyaide also conducted extensive research in selecting perfect materials for each section, together with detailed analysis of component compatibility, even down to the screws and washers. We went even further to harmonize the components by applying our own proprietary heat treatment process to each and every part.
Together with the Oyaide internal wiring system and original super receptacles, Oyaide has realized the ultimate power distribution system for Audiophiles.
2.0mm thick brass plate formed into a special shape for rigidity, speed and good internal energy absorption properties. The plate is coated with extra thick layers of non-electrolytic nickel ground plating, and then finished with chrome plating to further enhance its rigidity and speed characteristics. This also has the effect of improving shielding against wider range E.M.I.
2.0mm dia., high purity (4N) solid Silver, extensively annealed in low temperature to remove mechanical distortion/stress from the extrusion process. We then apply a further highly controlled process in order to produce a smoother and stronger surface for distortion free electron transmission. This also has the effect of eliminating any mechanical weakness caused by the annealing process.
These carefully developed processes enable the Silver to break through to a new level of sound quality. This is further enhanced by independent internal connection to each outlet in order to avoid cross-talk and to ensure evenness. All connections are Lead free.
Further Resonance Control:
The main body/insulator is made of Nylon with glass filler mixed in; this ensures high heat resistance, rigidity and a high resonance absorption factor. We also avoided common rubber feet, instead using 4 Brass spikes which can easily be changed to a 3 foot configuration by relocating them.
