Purple Audio Sweet Ten Rack 500 Series Rack

Holds ten 500 Series modules
MFR# Sweet Ten

Product Description

Many manufacturers, including past Purple Audio prototypes, use linear power supplies for their racks. Traditional wisdom holds that linear power supplies are ideal for audio and generate less noise and interference. In many cases, especially with poorly designed "off the shelf" switching power supplies, this is true. However, in the case of a 10 slot series 500 rack, even a well designed linear power supply generates a substantial magnetic hum field and far too much heat to allow for internal mounting. This problem is caused in part by the wide variation of line voltage across the world. External power supplies are cumbersome and inconvenient and consideration still has to be taken as to their placement in relation to other equipment.

With the advancement of switching power supplies it is now possible to have a switcher that does not compromise audio performance and delivers or exceeds all specified current needs. Purple Audio has spent years perfecting just such a power supply. They have comparatively tested all of theirs, and many of their competitors, modules at full bandwidth (10 Hz - 500 kHz) on lab quality over built bench supplies to make sure that the Sweet Ten is not compromising audio performance in any way. Simply put, your 500 series modules will perform at their highest level in a Purple Audio Sweet Ten Rack. Audio performance improvements are considerable.

Now new and improved since July 2017!

  • Added a new power supply with increased current of 2.4 amps instead of 1.5 amps
  • Improved fault protection, can take a dead short and protect itself
  • Improved ripple/noise and radiation
  • Improved tracking between rails
  • Fully backwards compatible, all old supplies that have service done will be upgraded to new supply

Features:

  • 10 slot 500 module rack
  • Internal 150 K switching supply
  • +48 VDC 150 mA
  • Second Balanced Output Utilizing Edge Connector 3 & 6
  • Second Balanced Input Utilizing Edge Connector 7 & 9
  • Front Handles
  • Locking Female XLR connectors
  • Ninth slot capable of accepting the Purple Audio Moiyn (8x2) Mixer Module (specs to come)
  • No PSU noise in adjacent slots
  • Rear Ground connector
  • Capable of putting out the 500 module current spec 1.3 A from 90 VAC to 240 VAC 50/60 Hz
  • CE, ROHS, & WEEE Marked

The Sweet Ten top, side, and back panels are finished in trivalent yellow chromate cold rolled steel instead of painted steel for improved grounding and shielding. Purple Audio's ground plane motherboards provide additional grounding. Additionally, the rack motherboard has .1uf high frequency bypass capacitors at each slot to improve filtering, especially for modules with DC/DC converters. Functionally, the Sweet Ten offers 2 inputs and 2 outputs per slot. Many of the Purple modules already take advantage of second output and the Moiyn mixer module will use the second input to allow for stereo balanced source injection. Future uses of these connectors include fader loops on future modules as well as a few surprises!

There's not much to say about any 500 rack. It either works or doesn't. This one works. All my gear sounds great in it!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
