PS Audio PerfectWave PowerPlant P10

The PerfectWave P10 is the largest and most advanced high-end personal power generating station in the world.

Capable of powering any size system with pure sine wave power, generated internally with a fully analog power amplifier, the P10 brings forth all that's possible from your system and ensures you get the same great performance every time you listen.

How it works.

The P10 is PS Audio's biggest and best Power Plant yet. With 5 separate regenerated zones and 1500 watts of pure regenerated power, the P10 can handle any size system you want to power. From medium to large power amplifiers to the smallest pieces of source equipment, the P10 will work magic on your system's performance. Only the very finest high-end system around the world use the P10 Power Plant and this is the piece to strive for.

With your system powered directly from the output of the P10, dynamics and openness are breathtaking. New voices, new harmonics and a renewed sense of musicality are yours the moment the P10 starts up. This is clearly one of the most important pieces of audio equipment you can own building a firm and reliable foundation for your system that will serve you for years to come.

The PerfectWave P10 Power Plant takes your incoming AC power and converts it to DC, similar to what comes out of a battery, and then with patented PS Audio technology regenerates and produces new sine-wave-perfect, regulated high current AC power. In the process of regeneration any problems on your power line such as low voltage, distorted waveforms, sagging power and noise are eliminated.

Since the introduction of Power Plant regenerator technology in 1997, many reviewers as well as many thousands of customers around the world have experienced for themselves just how critical and unique a Power Plant is; the term accessory doesn't begin to describe its value. One of our customers, a long-time reviewer for one of the established audio journals, remarked that it's the first component anyone serious about high-quality audio should get.

It's good to understand the importance of power in a high-end audio system. Everything we see and hear through our system is really the power from our home's wall socket manipulated to make music through our speakers by our electronics. The quality of that power is critical to the success of any high-end system.

Legacy power conditioners

Traditional power conditioners have been widely available for several decades and range in price from a few dollars to multiple thousands of dollars.

Most power conditioners on the market today are passive filters. This means there are only passive parts inside such as capacitors, resistors, transformers and coils of wire. Power conditioners do not have the ability to add missing energy back onto the power line to correct for the serious issues in the AC.

While some of the better respected high-end power conditioners do provide a significantly better sound and performance level for many systems, they are unable to address the fundamental problems found on the AC line. Unfortunately, this means they cannot ensure your listening and viewing experience will always be the same. Quite simply put, by relying on passive means to help the AC power, one relinquishes the security and reliability of a system running from a PS personal generator.

The problems with power

AC power that is available in our homes is not perfect and is getting worse with time. Problems include fluctuating levels, noise, distortion, harmonics, unreliable performance during certain hours of the day and dynamic losses.

All AV equipment relies on this AC power to produce the music and video we listen to and watch in our systems. The quality of that AC power has a direct effect on the audio and image quality in a high-end system and without steady, perfected power, one cannot depend on the same level of performance day in and day out.

Legacy technology passive power conditioners address none of the real problems with power in our homes.

Power Plants are not power conditioners.

Power Plants are personal AC generators that provide hard working, perfected results from the AC power line. Power regeneration uses active components, like those found in large and powerful audio amplifiers, to rebuild the AC power and produce clean, clear, distortion free, regulated AC to the equipment.

Power Plants also provide excellent protection and cleaning of radio, cell phone and computer interference, but more importantly, regeneration provides a steady, regulated, low impedance source of pure AC, unaffected by the equipment's demands for power.

The key to the Power Plant's success and what makes it so unique in the industry is the way it makes the power better.

Instead of simple filtering, as a legacy power conditioner does, the Power Plant actually repairs the main power issues actually caused by the equipment itself: dynamic fluctuations.

Dynamic fluctuations occur with nearly every power amplifier or receiver on the market today. When a loud musical passage is reproduced, the power amplifier draws more power from the wall to feed the loudspeakers. When this occurs, the voltage at the wall decreases in direct relationship with the loudness of the musical passage. Louder is worse.

Traditional power conditioners only worsen this already bad situation.

If, on the other hand, the system is powered from a Power Plant AC regenerator, the problem is eliminated 100%. Dynamic voltage fluctuations are stopped completely, the power amp receiving perfectly regulated, steady AC power regardless of the demands from the power amplifier.

In a high-end system, where perfection is hoped for and compromise is not an option that's acceptable, the improvements brought by a Power Plant are instantly recognised with a simple audition that shows both with and without perfected power.
