Route Master reorganizes this tangled web in a coherent fashion bringing all ground signals to earth via the shortest route to a single star point inside of a noise-reducing ferro-electric chamber, creating a stable and fixed horizon for all components to navigate from.

The signal grounds on your various HiFi and AV Components may conform to a number of less-than-ideal practices. At a basic level still adhered to by many manufacturers, chassis ground is the same as safety ground and is the same as signal ground. But on some equipment chassis ground does not equal safety ground and on much equipment, the signal ground is lifted from chassis ground. Of course, connecting two components, say via RCA, one item where the three grounds are unified to another component where they are not, will result in that second component having its signal ground united with safety ground, etc. And through the interconnection of all signals leads to a haphazard confusion of circulating signal grounds is created.

Ultra Ground Connects
Optimally adjusted cables provide the most sonically desirable routing to the ground point. 99.99% oxygen-free copper conductors optimized dielectrics and extreme flexibility avoiding vibration distortions, available in a wide range of terminations.

Route Master provides the shortest and most coherent route to a common star grounding point for all of the components that form audio or audiovisual systems and may be used on its own to provide a central “star” connected point for the signal ground of all connected components. Internally a strategic array of nodes direct residual noise into its ferro-electric core where it is turned into harmless heat. Ultimate results are achieved by connecting the “star” position to the Puritan Ground Master, whereby not only are all earthing circuits bonded in a uniform and tidy manner, but the noise on this common earth is further substantially reduced.

If it is not possible to install an actual earthing rod for the Ground Master, you can still achieve excellent results by using the Ground Master City model which simply plugs into an available wall socket and provides a highly cleansed additional grounding connection to the star point.

Component connections to the Route Master are done by Ultra Ground Connects, available with these connectors: RCA, XLR (Male), USB-A, RJ45, Spade, and RCA Loop (a loop around the RCA jack, so you can still plug in an RCA cable).

Why Purify?

Washing machines, fridges, computers, plug in power supplies, low energy lighting, dimmer switches, heating pumps, thermostats, solar power installations, the list of culprits directly injecting rubbish into our mains supply is endless. Effectively anything connected to the mains in your house and all of your neighbours houses contributes to the problem. And that is before you consider more distant heavy industrial machinery, and it doesn’t stop there….. In the air there’s mobile phone, radio and TV transmissions, WiFi, Bluetooth, emergency services transmissions (the list is never ending) all totally saturating the atmosphere. Your household wiring and equipment cables acting as antennas, absorb and pile these very significant disturbances on top of the considerable interference already in them.

The flood of fizz, hash, spikes, snap crackle and pop delivering itself into your sensitive dacs, preamps, amplifiers and video displays swamp and confuse everything they are trying to do…… and it gets worse! The DC voltages, normally present in your mains supply, smother and suffocate the transformers in your equipment. Transformers need to “breath” freely and fully, in and out, following the AC mains frequency. The presence of DC leaves them noisily gasping for breath and unable to deliver their full power and punch.

When this occurs, the clarity, dynamics and emotion of the performance that you are trying to recreate is smothered under a barrage of interference pollution and waveform distortion. Your audio and visual equipment groans, buzzes and rattles, …. sound is constricted, muddled, harsh, two dimensional and unrealistic.

With the ‘Puritan Treatment’ dynamics and definition take an almost unbelievable stride forward, individual instruments gain air between them, their sound and timbre become convincing of the real thing, the sound-stage moves out of your speakers and into the room with gains in three dimensionality and with clarity definition and space between the instruments for them to inter-relate rather than muddle each other. Your listening will become a far more engaging and pleasurable experience.

Problems with mains and airborne disturbances also greatly compromise visual display performance causing definition to be dulled and the dynamics squashed. With the ‘Puritan Treatment’ the visual experience elevates to a higher level of noise free richness, blacker blacks, greater clarity, increased vibrancy and realism.

Our aim throughout is to produce the ultimate mains purifier solutions and to present these to the consumer with a level of meticulous build quality that means that an investment in a Puritan product is an investment that will be enjoyed for decades to come.

Look inside any of our products and you will see they are crammed with engineering.

We use multiple filter elements, 39 in the PSM136, each carefully and precisely tuned to inter-relate with each other to produce an increasing, cumulative cleansing effect with the lowest impedance high current paths to preserve maximum surge demand and dynamic agility.

By maintaining the power of equal resistance paths to each outlet and with every single type of mains degradation mode comprehensively dealt with, right down to the provision of a precision cleansed, star reference grounding structure, all Puritan design aspects come together to enable your system to perform to its absolute peak ability.

Mains purifiers require a means of connecting from the wall to the purifier and from the purifier to your equipment. To preserve the ultimate quality of mains supply we have developed our unique ‘Proprietary Dissipative Technology Mains Cables’. These employ a very substantial 25 amp rating, extremely high purity plated copper conductors enclosed in a superior dielectric silicone insulation which in turn is encased with a mechanically damping silicone sheath to provide a vibrationally “dead” super silent conduit. We then massively enhance this already terrific cable with a very special technology:

With normal (unshielded) mains cables, airborne interferences enter the conductors directly, polluting your equipment power paths, disrupting signal processing and delivery. With ordinary shielded cables airborne interferences are gathered and dumped into your system’s earth and through this route disrupt your processing and signal paths – a lose – lose situation! We solved this dilemma by developing our unique Proprietary Dissipative Technology shielding system. With our unique dissipative shielding the interferences bombarding the cables are absorbed into the dissipative shield, burned up and dissipated as heat – avoiding interference either reaching the conductors or polluting the system earth.

A thoroughly thought through and researched, highly advanced mains cable solution.

Other Puritan products to improve audio and visual experience by the elimination of mains disturbance problems include plug in silencers to place in sockets around the house to prevent re-radiation of disturbances, quietening the overall EMI/RFI smog and high specification speaker cables protected with our dissipative technology to prevent radiated disturbances attacking signal integrity at the last stage.

Choose the Puritan Treatment:
  • Liberate your sound stage into the room with greater breadth, depth and 3D realism
  • Regain the timing and emotion of the music with clear air between individual instruments
  • Release your system’s full dynamic range, it will punch harder and yet reveal more with quiet subtleties and tonal nuances unveiled
  • Clarity and definition improve with the sound and timbre of instruments becoming tangible and real
  • Listening becomes far more engaging and addictive
