Powering the audio equipment…   Caring for the music…

For more than three decades, JMF Audio had focused on the amplification and the transport of the audio signal, building a reputation for a natural rendering of music among music lovers, audiophiles, and studio professionals. With time, questionings regarding the influence of the mains power on the perceived sound quality became frequent. Thus, we decided to study the subject, for our own sake, for our clients’ satisfaction, for the music.  We measured, analyzed, listened, made correlations… Tackling power line issues along with ensuring musicality, the challenge was high…

We now can state that as much optimized an audio system can be it will never reveal its full potential without a clean mains power supply. Following the success of the PC3 power cord for the significant sound quality improvement that comes along, JMF Audio brings a total answer: the PCD302 power line filter and distributor, a world’s first concept.

The PCD302’s exclusive bi-directional and independent filtering principle suppresses power line disturbances coming from the outside as well as interactions between audio gears.

  • Dual mono concept
  • Each mono section powered through an attached JMF Audio PC3 cord
  • Phase detection on each input
  • Bi-directional JMF Audio BDF223 filtering!
  • The PCD302 contains 6 large, hand wrapped, potted BDF223 filters
  • 10 filtered outputs of which 6 are totally independent
  • Sequential power output to reduce in-rush currents on the mains
  • Case and front panel size identical to the JMF Audio power amplifiers
  • A single front panel button to power-on and power-off the main power supply
  • Mounted on sub-chassis, acoustically floating, vibration free
  • Soundproof case
  • Total power handling: over 7kW
  • Operation from 100 to 240V AC automatic

Elegant concept:

With a simple gesture, on its front panel button, the PCD302 can start up and power down an entire JMF Audio setup, without risk of power line shutdown, without risk of “pop” in the speakers.

The sequential output power-up ensures a spread of in-rush currents over time.

The PCD302 is built around the same chassis as the JMF Audio power amplifiers, for a coherent stacking.

Simplicity of installation:

Two indicators on the rear panel light up to warn in case of phase reversal.

The operation from 100 to 240V AC, without servicing, makes installation internationally easy and safe.

Clear and extensive owner’s manual provided.

Majestic listening result:

Wider soundstage, fluidity, sweetness, fullness, deeper bass. Which is typical of a JMF Audio element.

Whereas renown audio power line filters and conditioners only bring a slight improvement, at best, the persons who have had the privilege to listen with the PCD302 in our rooms or at home got turned over!
