“We maintain that clean power delivery is a must for any high-performance audio system. Every link in the chain is a potential weakness, and a chance that some of the resolution you’ve paid for, can be lost. Thanks to premium construction, and a trio of Cardas 4181 outlets, the Nautilus power strip will never be the weak link in your audio chain.”
