Located in the royal city of Ciudad Real in Northern Spain, Vibex is the brainchild of English-born designer Cliff Orman. Using years of design and materials experience, Cliff and his Vibex team make highly effective and exceptionally high value AC power products that allow the components of a music lover’s audio system to perform at another level. High Fidelity Services is proud to present the unique design and approach of Vibex.
“The Vibex One 11R is the result of over 20 years of investigation into how mains power affects our hi-fi and video systems. Nothing has been left to chance. Every single design parameter and its interaction with the rest of the design have been carefully studied and evaluated to extract the maximum from today’s high end systems.” – Cliff Orman
Rhodium plated 15A IEC input with 6 high grade gold plated outlets; unit composed of Krion (non-metallic, non-conductive artificial stone) with tropical wood body fastened/dampened with elastomers; gel feet — no metallic fasteners are used throughout
The Plumier V is the culmination of over 15 years of investigation into power products and energy control. Although the Plumier V is our most economical product, it’s benefits are indisputable.
From the outset we wanted the Plumier V to be worthy of the Vibex name and this has proved to be more difficult than expected. Obviously we have had to use more economical materials, but the combination of materials used had to assure that the sound quality was up to our exacting standards.
By combining Krion (non-metallic, non-conductive artificial stone), tropical wood and new high tech elastomers, we have been able to obtain a level of quality far superior to our expectations.
The result is a beautifully natural and organic sound, which we are sure you will be captivated by.

The Granada is the culmination of over 15 years of investigation into power filtering and energy control systems.
We sincerely believe that the Granada is a major step forward in power distribution for high end audio and video systems.
All equipment is very susceptible to D.C. on the mains. Even source components with very small transformers are negatively affected by D.C. Needless to say big mains transformers suffer the most. These are found in the majority of integrated and power amplifiers. Switch mode power supplies also suffer when D.C. is present.
Even small amounts of D.C. seriously reduce the efficiency of an equipment’s power supply. This reduces dynamics, silence and information in a system. Most transformers will produce hum when D.C. is present. Even if you can’t hear any hum coming from a piece of equipment, this is no guarantee that D.C. is not present on your mains power supply.
Removing D.C. efficiently from your system is probably one of the largest improvements in quality that you can achieve. All components in your system will take a large step forward in quality. The difference when the Granada is in your system is far from subtle!
The Granada is not just a D.C. filter, but also incorporates a very advanced energy control and dissipation system. The Granada’s chassis is machined from solid pieces of Krion, a solid surface with excellent properties. This material has proven to be far superior to a solid aluminum chassis or any other metal case. The Granada employs individual damping for every component. This allows us to damp and control energy and avoid cross contamination to other components in the system. The Granada uses the latest high tech elastomers to dissipate residual mechanical energy caused by the mains power itself and vibration received through the air and the mains cables that supply the equipment. All this energy control helps to create the silence that is paramount for a system to work at maximum efficiency.
All components within the Granada are selected by ear for optimum quality. Precision laboratory equipment is far from adequate for component selection. Every Granada is measured after its initial running-in period to confirm that it complies to our specifications and then we listen to it in our reference system before sending it to the customer.
