English Electric’s EE1 Network Noise Isolator Out Now
Promising to banish network noise, English Electric's EE1 sits between streaming components to reduce noise in AV systems.
English Electric (a Chord Company brand) has launched the EE1, a self-powered, “high-performance network noise isolator” designed to reduce noise by sitting discreetly between streaming system components and promises to improve both sound and image quality by “dramatically reducing unwanted noise”.
We are told that the EE1's passive design converts unwanted noise into heat, allowing digital signals to pass unhindered.
English Electric states that, although digital signals are generally robust, they are often accompanied by a degree of noise, which is often generated by household devices on home networks. However, the EE1 improves things through galvanic and common mode noise reduction technologies that allow the transmission of the signals whilst significantly reducing other unwanted network noise.
The company suggests putting the EE1 to work between a data switch and a streamer/server, between a server and a streamer, or between a router and a data switch. The brand adds that further noise reduction can also be achieved by using additional devices, for example, between a router and a data switch, and between the switch and a streamer.
The English Electric EE1 is available now, priced at £250. For a limited time, a 0.75m C-Stream streaming cable (worth £61.88) will be included for free. International pricing has not been shared by the company.
