Power Supply: Frank Ultra Bank

Recommended Posts

I just got this unit for the last 2-3 weeks. It’s been an eye opener for me. This Ultra Bank is what the manufacturer calls an auto transformer. It’s beyond me. From what little I know, it seems to ensure that current supply will be optimized.

It did make a very obvious difference in my system. In short the system sounded like it’s energized.

Bass is bolder and more taut. Mids have better density. Found the highs to be smoother too. Thus the soundstage becomes more vivid. Listening experience is a lot better.

It’s been most interesting for me. I used to wonder why it would make any difference bearing in mind from the wall there’s more than enough current to kill a few horses.

Something new to be learnt each day I guess.

Specifications are here:
FRANK ACOUSTICS: FRANK PB-15000Ws Power Bank Storage 

ps I’m not the manufacturer or a distributor for this component.

Man ... you are really into interconnects. Hehehe ... I’ve tried some expensive ones, Siltech Queen, heard the difference but just too rich for my blood. Maybe after I’ve robbed a few banks 😬

Maybe one day when I’m free I’ll find someone who is knowledgeable to explain it to me 😂

I don't use the flash ones very often..I quite like my audioquest ones at the moment..flash cables can show the limitations of other equipment in the system..I have decided to enjoy the music and be less analytical..I have tried a bank of aa batteries on my t amps and found a very nice presentation of the music..I always wondered what my main kit would sound if I could use something akin to my little battery pack..

Yup ... especially those who have not tried anything but seem to know for a fact. They sully the human gene pool. 😂🤣
