Russ Andrews is introducing an inline version of its MiniZap, a noise absorption filter that was originally only available as an optional extra fitted to Kimber interconnect cables.

The inline version makes it possible for users of existing Kimber, or any other brand of interconnects, to take advantage of the noise reduction capabilities for, say Russ Andrews, improved audio performance.

MiniZap Zapperator Technology

The original MiniZaps are an implementation of the company’s Zapperator technology, high-quality dissipative filters that are designed to absorb very high frequency noise, originally created for use with loudspeakers and devised by audio designer Ben Duncan. They were designed to be wired directly into Kimber interconnect cables as an option when purchasing new cables.


Russ Andrews has now developed a new inline MiniZap version, which works in exactly the same way as the wired version but is more convenient. They come in the form of an inline adapted WBT plug and socket and can be fitted to either end of analogue or digital interconnects. “The advantage of these inline versions is that it makes it easy to benefit from the technology without having to send your cable back for modification,” says Peter Bevir, head of product development. “And they’re not only for use with Kimber cables – we’ve tested many different brands of interconnects with the addition of the Inline MiniZaps and every time the resulting improvement in audio quality has been clearly obvious, making this a really useful and simple upgrade for all hifi systems.”

The Russ Andrews Inline MiniZaps are available now for £210 per pair and are made to order.
