The MiniSub has always been at the heart of ISOL-8, providing class leading performance at an affordable price. Improving the MiniSub was a real challenge, thousands of satisfied MiniSub owners across the world proved that it was going to be a difficult act to follow. Through careful development and adaptation we have managed to incorporate many of the innovative technologies found in the highly regarded flagship ISOL-8 SubStations, taking the all new MiniSub Wave and MiniSub Axis a substantial step forward whilst remaining outstanding value for money.
Both the MiniSub Wave and MiniSub Axis share the same fundamental layout and filter complement. The differing technical requirements of low and high current loads are reflected in the separated filter topology found in both versions.
For low current loads, such as source components, each outlet has a separate filter network. This is the feature that made the original MiniSub such a ground breaking product. It reduces system component cross contamination, stopping mains borne noise from one system component affecting others.
Unlike most other conditioners, which only deal with common mode noise, the low/med power outlets can suppress both common and differential mode noise, armed with a new Transmodal filter topology.
For more demanding loads, the separate high power section gets a new multistage filter using custom wound components. This cleans current hungry, noisy components like amplifiers much more effectively than before, without squashing dynamic performance.
The MiniSub Axis has exactly the same layout and filter complement as the MiniSub Wave but takes performance another step forward with the addition of Axis DC blocking. A significant DC component is commonly found on the mains power supply. It affects the crucial magnetic circuit of your equipment’s AC power supplies, degrading system performance and causing acoustic noise through mechanical vibration. The MiniSub Axis ensures your system will be free of any of the negative effects of DC on the mains.
We take pride in continuing to bring our outstanding build quality to the new MiniSubs, making them an investment that provides unbeatable performance and will last a lifetime. Inside the quality casework you will find the same carefully auditioned polypropylene capacitors, Mundorf OFC inductors, high grade connectors, and custom ISOL-8 chokes that are found in our high end audiophile products. You will also have the peace of mind that comes with our spike and surge protection. All ISOL-8 products are designed and manufactured in the UK and come with a five year guarantee in the UK.
The result of an extensive development program, the next generation of the MiniSub takes its class leading performance to a whole new level in every area, helping your system to fulfil its maximum potential every time you listen.
