      Is the alternative to the Pressac BT ADSL filters a better product? If so, why?

      We are awaiting a Pressac filter to try against the 2 that we have already done so. Should be here in a few days.

      As for the cheaper one that runit are doing as an alternative to the Pressac, I believe it is the same or thereabouts as the one we wrote about yesterday.

      Our tests have shown little difference, BT wholesale continue to use Pressac and we will also continue to sell them, it's an excellent quality UK MADE filter. The cheaper faceplate we will be stocking is electronically the same as the XTE-2005 as supplied by ADSL Nation. If you check this picture you will see they are the same product :-



      The only difference is the colour of the IDC blocks.

      it's an excellent quality UK MADE filter.
      Are the actual electronics made in UK? I would be very surprised if they are, most appear to be made in the Far East.

      Haven't a clue, the actual manufacture IS in the UK though. (remember a Sony TV with "Made in the UK" on the back has a CRT made in Spain etc, well, they don't make CRT any more do they!).

      Here are the inerds for anyone interested..........

      Changes in temperature causing the metal to expand and contract, vibration from passing traffic, etc.

      If that is the case then everyone's electrical circuits must be in a mess, as afaik, the wires there are all screw fixed.

      Don't forget also that the majority of BT NTE5's out there are probably screw terminal too-they were only phased out at the beginning of this year!
