Chord Company PowerHaus S6 Mains block
Chord Company Powerhaus S6 6 way mains block.
What we Say:
The Chord Company Powerhaus S6 is designed to help you get the most from your Hi-Fi system. It is a 6 way block that comes complete with a mains lead. We would recommend hearing one if you currently use an alternative multiway block as the Chord S6 and M6 offer superb class leading performance.
The Chord Company Powerhaus S6 uses Chord Aray technology to reduce noise on the Ground line. Normally these Arays cost £500 each so including one on a £1000 product offers great value The enclosure of the S6 is made from anodised extruded aluminium. The build quality of the S6 is superb with a real feel of a high end piece of Hi-Fi equipment. The S6 comes with a mains lead which although included in the price gives a superb performance with Naim kit. It doesn’t require swapping out for a more expensive alternative to get the S6 to perform. It sounds amazing with the supplied cable.
For those people wishing to push the performance yet further there are 16A versions of most Chord mains cables to feed the S6 with. Chord are recommending the Epic X mains lead with the S6 block.

The Chord Company PowerHAUS mains block is the distillation of decades working with signal and power transfer and benefits from a unique version of our acclaimed ARAY technology (MainsARAY) which has been specially adapted for power distribution.
Virtually every component utilised inside the PowerHAUS is uncompromising and has been manufactured specifically for its intended purpose. Accordingly, both M6 and S6 models are non-switched and avoid filters and neon power indicators which can generate noise and reduce quality. Their solid aluminium construction minimises the unwanted effects of microphony, too.
The PowerHAUS blocks benefit from specially selected, high-quality, heavy-gauge cables throughout, with sockets chosen not just for their reliability, but also their sound performance. A high-performance 16-amp IEC allows the PowerHAUS blocks to cope with even the most demanding home audio systems.
Available in two performance levels, the flagship M6 (Master) and entry-level S6 (Studio), the six-way PowerHAUS distribution devices are the result of one of the longest product development phases we have undertaken.
The flagship M6 offers the best performance and utilises three hybrid MainsARAYs fitted in parallel (rather than in series) to the bus bars, removing high-frequency noise whilst remaining outside of the circuit. Rather than being star-wired (which is susceptible to RFI), the wiring is run along three bus bars which are all isolated from each other. The earth bus bar is kept as far away as possible from both the live and neutral.
The S6 retains many of the core features of the flagship M6, but is more affordable and represents a significant improvement over standard mains distribution blocks.
