The CMX-2 offers a solution to a less-familiar, common problem – DC offset on the AC power line. DC offset is usually the result of unbalanced loads or by flaws in the power distribution system itself. It can cause DC current flow in the transformers that power your audio equipment, making them run hotter, produce more mechanical hum, and, in extreme cases, even potentially causing permanent damage. In addition to removing line noise, the CMX-2 also totally eliminates this annoying and potentially damaging problem as well.Learn More ▾

In addition to removing line noise, the CMX-2 also totally eliminates this annoying and potentially damaging problem as well.
The CMX-2 delivers clean power, free of high-frequency line noise and potentially audible DC offsets to your audio components. It also continuously monitors your AC power line wiring integrity and alerts you to common fault conditions like open grounds and reversed lines.
Constructed from premium components, the CMX-2 utilizes our exclusive Power Direct Connect™ mounting system, which connects the commercial grade outlet directly to the high current circuit board by the shortest possible path, eliminating power robbing resistive losses and other problems caused by less reliable and robust wiring techniques. It also uses top grade common mode and differential mode L-C filtering to reduce or eliminate all types of high-frequency noise.
Ideal accessory for high performance electronics.

Fast delivery to Canada - four days to Vancouver Product well made particularly given the cost. Completely eliminates DC offset hum in the transformer of my Woo Audio HPA. Well done, thanks
Unit worked perfectly as advertised removing an intermittent humming noise from the amplifier’s transformer. Construction of the unit is top notch. Highly recommended!
Pros: - This filter completely removed the TRANSFORMER hum from my setup. - It even made the power up transformer noise softer! - Solid build quality - Wiring indicator lights Cons: - Pretty bulky for two outlets; needs to be mounted somewhere out of sight.
I had an awful hum from my Naim XS 2 amp that after some research sounded like it might be due to DC in the AC line. Guy at the store suggested a $2000 power conditioner. Plugged it into the CMX-2 and it’s pin-drop quiet.
Functional and attractive.
