20-AMP Version Expected November 2018
The Nautilus is the Cardas approach to pure power distribution. Its elegant design is centered around premium, custom designed connectors. Point-to-Point wiring with heavy gauge, Ultra Pure solid core copper conductors. Passive RFI/EMI protection on every outlet, the same filters found on our flagship power cables. 3D printed wire guides ensure the uniformity of each coil. Capable of delivering clean, high current to all six outlets. An attractive case echoes design features from the original Cardas Golden 6A power strip. This power strip is perfect for anyone who wants their entire system connected to one high-quality device.
Available in US & European (Schuko) versions, The Nautilus features our own 4181US & 4181EU power outlets. Rhodium/Silver plated contact surfaces and excellent grip tension make both of these premium connectors ideal for audio applications.
There are no current-limiting components in The Nautilus. This is as pure as power distribution gets. The hot & neutral lines are point-to-point wired with Cardas Solid Core 10 AWG copper. The star-ground system uses Cardas 11.5 AWG Multi-stranded Litz Conductor. Each outlet has the same RFI/EMI protection found in our flagship power cables.
Each outlet in The Nautilus is equally capable of providing clean power and noise-free grounding to your audio system.
A 4mm jack next to the IEC inlet can be used to connect The Nautilus to an external ground using a Cardas CAB Banana.
The Nautilus is housed in an extruded aluminum case, anodized black, with copper plated end pieces machined from billet brass. The underside is laser engraved with basic product information, and a hand-stamped serial number.
The Nautilus pairs well with any Cardas power cable, providing various options and a clear upgrade path. Inquire with Cardas Sales Director Brian Von Bork about generous discounts for purchasing Cardas power cables on the same invoice with The Nautilus Power Strip.
