For something like two years I have been the proud owner of a Stellar P3. I would have wanted to get a P 12, but when you look at the back you can see that the European versions have a dramatically reduced number of outlets. P3 down from 6 to 4 is… (grinding teeth) okayyyyy, but from 8 down to 4 as in the P 12, well…
I know you have to fit things into a certain box. But couldn’t you for once think of potential customers outside the US?
Well, I have a contraption that measures the electricity used on the spot. Plug it into the wall, plug your device into this contraption and you can see its present comsumption, work out how much electricity it would use over a year and calculate the costs. (I’ve used it for example to check how much electricity my freezer uses.)
And how much power does my hifi consume? Peak value at full blast something like 125 watts. So a P3 is enough for me. And 25 watts are consumed by the P3 in standby. Something like $80 a year on my electricity bill. Consquence: Switch it off totally after my listening sessions. By the way, my amp uses 5 watts.
And now for this:
Accidentally I found this finnish website.
The big question: How did that P 12 aquire an extra 4 outlets? Definitely Schuko ones…
