Expand your power tap system with switching and connection functions!

Power tap “Crystal R2P” equipped with switch and connection function.
With the diversification and diversification of audio systems, it is a high-quality power tap that enables the power to be turned off when not in use, and also enables the function expansion of the power tap system with the connection function.
Not only can it be used for consumer audio, but it is also more convenient for DTM (desktop music) music production.

Features of Crystal R2P

strong points

On/off function with power switch

With a single power switch, you can turn on/off all outputs of the grounded 3P outlet + connected outlet all at once.

It can be used as a power strip for audio equipment that does not have a power switch, PC audio and network audio in recent years, and DTM (desktop music) peripheral equipment used in music production sites.
Vintage products and overseas products often have audio equipment without a power switch, but many of them are said to prevent sound quality deterioration due to mechanical contacts.

KOJO TECHNOLOGY has succeeded in overcoming both sound quality and convenience by adopting a power switch made by British Arcolectric, which has a proven track record for electrical performance (inrush current: 150A) and sound quality.

The body that makes up Crystal R2P consists of 3 parts: TOP cover / BOTTOM chassis / sub-chassis.

Not only the inlet and outlet, but also the power switch and all other parts are mounted on the subchassis. By making it independent (hanging) from the exterior case (TOP cover, BOTTOM chassis), it dampens unnecessary external vibrations that affect the power tap.

The connection between the top cover and the sub-chassis is made of M2052, a damping alloy that can attenuate from ultra-low frequencies to ultrasonic waves . The damping of unnecessary vibration is made higher-dimensional.

*1 Damping alloy: M2052
An alloy for which the National Institute for Materials Science [NIMS] (formerly the National Institute for Materials Science, Ministry of Science and Technology) applied for a patent in 1995 (patent number: 2849698). A Mn-based alloy consisting of 73% Mn (manganese) + 20% Cu (copper) + 5% Ni (nickel) + 2% Fe (iron). movement) occurs, and it is said to produce high damping properties that have not been seen in alloys up to now.

Furthermore, in order to make MIS more effective, each part is mounted at an appropriate distance so that the plug does not touch the outer case even when a large outlet plug or inlet plug is inserted.

Body material with increased rigidity and robustness

The body consists of three parts, the TOP cover is made of aluminum, the BOTTOM chassis, and the sub-chassis are made of steel.

In addition, the BOTTOM chassis, which is directly affected by vibrations from the floor (installation surface), is reinforced with a thickness of 2.0 mm, and uses TAOC vibration absorption sheets as vibration absorption sheets.
These further improve the vibration suppression effect of the MIS and increase the rigidity of the entire body, contributing greatly to a sense of stability and high sound quality when setting.

Internal wiring

The wiring material of the power supply line inherits the single wire material that actively utilizes the skin effect and adopts tin plating 1.6 mm.

After the power supply line passes through the power switch from the inlet, each output outlet is wired straight so that transmission can be performed without loss, and the MIS. In order to maintain the independence (suspension) of the sub-chassis, care is taken not to touch the exterior case (TOP cover, BOTTOM chassis) at all.

When soldering each part, we carefully select and select the ones containing special ingredients, and our specially selected meisters work with their skilled skills.

Unique linking function

The Crystal R2P has a truly unique docking feature (the docking outlet). The shapes of the inlets and connecting outlets used in the Crystal series are standardized according to the international standard: IEC60320, and their functions can be expanded by connecting and fixing with connecting plates* 2 .

By connecting with Crystal 3.1 or 6.1 already on the market, it is possible to increase the number of outlets, and by connecting with other Crystal series which is rich in variety, expandable power supply that matches individual audio system It is possible to build a tap system, contributing to the systemization of power taps that are unified in terms of sound quality and design.

In the above-mentioned combination of Crystal R2P + 3.1, not only can the number of connectable outlets be increased, but the power supply to Crystal 3.1 is also linked to the power switch of Crystal R2P, so when power supply is not required, turn off the power switch. By doing so, it is possible to stop the power supply to all unused equipment at once.

Also, in the Crystal 3P + R2P combination, the power supply from the Crystal 3P is always in a state of power supply, but since the power switch is interposed in the latter R2P, the power supply is stopped only for the audio equipment connected after RP2. It is possible to let

Models equipped with a connecting plate connecting outlet: Crystal 3P/C1P/H1P/L1P and others come with a connecting plate. It is possible to fix the connecting part by using it when connecting.
Crystal 3.1/6.1/R5P that do not have a connection outlet do not come with a connection plate.
Old model: It is possible to connect with the Forcebar series, but it cannot be fixed with a connecting plate.

Enhancements with Crystal 3.1

high usability

With the advent of the recent PC audio, network audio, and DTM era in music production sites, AC adapters have come to be frequently used as power sources for related peripheral equipment.

AC adapters come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, and insertion directions, and have the disadvantage of blocking adjacent outlets. Adapters can also be used without difficulty.

In addition, the compact and slim body that meets user needs is very advantageous for accessories installed in the back of narrow audio systems or in gaps, making it possible to clean up the wiring around the power supply.

The ground terminal, which is unfamiliar to other manufacturers’ power taps, is connected to the ground line of the internal wiring and the exterior case, and can be effectively used as a connection destination for an outlet plug with a ground wire.

Supports AC adapters of various sizes

Utilization of ground termina


Crystal R2P (Crystal series) is designed with the concept of clarity and delicacy as the name suggests.

The image of the Force bar series was rugged and robust, but the black tone was changed to silver.

The BOTTOM chassis and sub-chassis are also unified in silver color. In particular, the BOTTOM chassis has a different folding method than the Force bar series, creating a sense of unity with the TOP cover.

The product type name placed on the top cover is also modern and stylish, with thin lines to create a sense of delicacy and accuracy.
The window frame through which the outlet, inlet, and power switch can be seen is designed and manufactured by original cutting molds used in the chassis processing process.
By changing from the conventional square window to a round square window that is one size larger, it also has a chillerism that gives a glimpse of the mechanism of MIS.

Crystal R2P with its simple design has earned the title of “CREATIVE POWER ACCESSORIE” as a creative power accessory that is typical of KOJO TECHNOLOGY.

Sound quality trend

The most standard and basic model in the Crystal series: A model that follows the Crystal 3.1/6.1, and even though it is equipped with a power switch that is considered disadvantageous in terms of sound quality, it has a wide and balanced band, spatial expression, and transparency. Inheritance also maintains the feeling.

Furthermore, it is not enough to just listen beautifully, the low range sinks deep into the low end and stretches. Mid- and low-range that is full of dynamism and greatly shakes the heart. From the exhilarating mid-high range to the gentle, smooth and glossy high range that fades away, the user will surely feel happy.
