Many manufacturers, including past Purple Audio prototypes, use linear power supplies for their racks. Traditional wisdom holds that linear power supplies are ideal for audio and generate less noise and interference.  However, in the case of a 10 slot series 500 rack, even a well designed linear power supply generates a substantial magnetic hum field and far too much heat to allow for internal mounting. This problem is caused in part by the wide variation of line voltage across the world.

With the advancement of switching power supplies it is now possible to have a switcher that does not compromise audio performance and delivers or exceeds all specified current needs.  We have spent years perfecting just such a power supply.  We have comparatively tested all of our, and many of our competitors, modules at full bandwidth (10Hz – 500kHz) on lab quality over built bench supplies to make sure that the Sweet Ten is not compromising audio performance in any way. Simply put, your 500 series modules will perform at their highest level in our rack. Audio performance improvements are considerable.

The Sweet Ten top, side, and back panels are finished in trivalent yellow chromate cold rolled steel instead of painted steel for improved grounding and shielding. Our ground plane motherboards provide additional grounding. Additionally, the rack motherboard has frequency bypass capacitors at each slot to improve filtering, especially for modules with DC/DC converters.

Functionally, the Sweet Ten offers 2 inputs and 2 outputs per slot. Many of our modules already take advantage of second output and our Moiyn mixer module will use the second input to allow for stereo balanced source injection. Future uses of these connectors include fader loops on future modules as well as a few surprises!

The GC Audio Rack 500 is a high-end 10 slot chassis with external power supply, compatible with all standard 500 series modules. The external linear power supply has a total capacity of 12 Amps (6A for the +16V circuit and 6A for the -16V circuit) which makes it the most powerful 500 rack on the market. It easily powers the most demanding modules by regulating them and filtering noise and parasites generated by the 50/60Hz AC current. The chassis is made of 1.5mm thick steel, 50% thicker than other 500 racks on the market, offering excellent shielding against electromagnetic radiation for optimal isolation of the 500 modules it receives.

Rack 500 is also available without external power supply.

WesAudio Supercarrier II – 11 slot 500 series rack fully compatible with API standard.
Supercarrier II is a second generation of our very popular Supercarrier I – 500 series standardized chassis. It features 11 slots with innovative ISP technology.

ISP – Independent Slot Power – is a solution which makes a huge breakthrough in 500 series powering system, it allows best accommodation for even most demanding 500 series modules. So what it is all about ? The answer is very simple – based on the ISP technology, each slot is individually supplied with linear power, causing each module to work in totally isolated, and independent way. To say it simple, it is like each of 11 modules would work in separate 500 series frames, what makes it ideal environment for your beloved hardware – without any interference, noise, pops or clicks. To separate each slot even more, we introduced a tantalum caps for each slot to clean the whole frequency spectrum from any other unwanted noise. The chassis itself, is powered by big 100W toroid external supply.
