PowerStation by iFi audio — extension block with in-built active noise cancellation

iFi Audio PowerStation

  • Our audiophile grade extension block will bring super quiet mains power to your system.
  • Whatever your set-up, digital, analogue or both, the PowerStation will ensure your listening remains interference free.

Power to the people

  • The iFi PowerStation is for everyone who likes their audio interference free.
  • It comes in 4 types – UK, EU and AU with 6 individual sockets and US/JAP with 8.
  • Put a stop to RFI or EMI noise and enjoy pain-free audio – all from one solid, snazzy dark anodised aluminium power block.

Ready, steady, go.

  • The PowerStation uses iFi’s Active Noise Cancelation II to ACTIVELY eliminates noise across the frequency range, even across the lower frequencies.
  • Each outlet has added passive filters to also eradicate noise from the very highest frequencies.


Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) reduces unwanted sound by the addition of a second sound wave specifically designed to cancel out the first. This basically results in no sound at all as it reaches unwanted sound even at the lowest frequencies.

Passive noise cancellation is done by means of insulating filters and works best on the middle to high frequencies. It does not work on the lower frequencies meaning that some sound can still be heard.

Nothing left to chance…

  • Each outlet is independently isolated in its own chamber to prevent cross-contamination, with the addition of vibration-damping EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate).
  • We use PurCopper – a form of 99.9999 per cent pure OFHC (oxygen-free high-conductivity) continuous-cast copper – for its superior conductivity.

Gives you the earth…

  • The PowerStation has inbuilt earth/ground and polarity detection.
  • No earth/ground can lead to annoying buzzes and hums – the scourge of audio.
  • We’ve added a 4mm banana socket to the PowerStation so a grounding cable can be used to create a ground/earth when one isn’t present.
  • Bingo, the sound is gone.

…but keeps you grounded

  • And the PowerStation is ‘smart’. The supplementary ground/earth connection will NOT introduce a ground loop EVEN if the system is already earthed.
  • More than one earth would also create a ground loop leading to more buzzing and humming and we don’t want that.

Fiercely protective

  • Polarity detection is vital if you don’t want to inadvertently harm your equipment or damage the quality of your audio. With the PowerStation, this is built in.
  • And never fear – surge protection is also here. If it detects a power surge or a mains short, the PowerStation will shut down, protecting your equipment from peril.


In simple terms, polarity refers to the way a signal flows.

Audio signals generally flow one way, like DC current, and have positive polarity. Inverting the polarity can have a negative impact on sound and equipment.

From humble beginnings

  • The PowerStation doesn’t forget where it came from – the original AC iPurifier.
  • You can still use your original AC iPurifier with the PowerStation – use them to separate your digital and analogue devices for even less noise contamination.

This is an active not a passive product. As can be seen from the graph, it cancels far more noise across the frequency range than a passive product.

Active filtration is MUCH better in the lower frequencies, at -40dB. Passive filtration is only truly effective in the very top-end of the frequency range.

Based on military tech, our improved Active Noise Cancellation2® (ANC2) actively cancels all incoming noise. It does this by generating a signal identical to the noise signal but in the exact opposite phase.

It reduces the noise floor by > 40dB (> 100x).


PurCopper – a form of 99.9999 per cent pure OFHC (oxygen-free high-conductivity) continuous-cast copper – is used extensively for its superior conductivity.

This includes 13 AWG, heavy-gauge internal wiring with multi-layered polymer insulation, solid PurCopper busbars and the conductive elements of the outlets themselves.


Our Wireless Purification System (WPS) is a complex circuit that reduces power line noise without audible or measured side-effects.

This is important because other solutions, while attempting to curb noise, also hamper dynamics.


The LED indicators show Polarity and Earth detection. As usual, green is good, red signifies an issue.

There are four possible combinations and these can be found in a brief table in the User Manual. This tells you what the issue is and suggests how to remedy it.


The Over-voltage Surge Protection (OSP) is an auto detection and cut-off circuit.

Should it detect an excessive power surge or short in the mains electricity it will automatically cut off. If this issue persists, it will not reboot and will protect your equipment from harm.

It is effectiive to max. 30,000A @ 1,000V/10uS.


Our Intelligent Ground is a smart diagnostic tool.

It only actively provides an earth/ground connection if your system needs one. It will NOT create a ground loop even if the system is already earthed/grounded.


You can use AC iPurifiers in the PowerStation.

The more AC iPurifiers you use, the cleaner the overall power. If the AC iPurifier is placed in the middle of the PowerStation it will also act as a noise shield. Noise is reduced, isolated and confined to the respective left/right sections of the AC iPurifier.

Use it to separate your analogue and digital devices.
