I’m a happy new owner of some PS kit (BHK pre and 250, DS DAC and P12). This was a purchase I had been considering for while, and these forums were quite helpful to me (so thanks tons, all).
One thing I did notice was that I had to poke about quite a bit on the power forum to collect information on which PP would be the “right” fit. Although I really wanted the 300s, the 15 and the 20 just posed too many placement issues in my room (shockingly, my lady doesn’t find my rig as aesthetically pleasing as I do). I’m guessing others may be making similar compromises for a host of reasons.
In any event, based upon the above, I thought it may be helpful to folks (like me, when I was researching) to have some system-specific information to with respect to load, etc. in one place. Although no two systems/rooms are exactly the same, it may provide some basis for comparison.
Here is my info to get things started
-Simaudio Moon 320s power supply
Speakers: Revel F228s (8 ohm/90 dB)
Room Size: Approx: 20 ft/14 ft (L/W) w/10 ft ceilings
At normal listening volumes (pre at 74 and Dac at 40- 50) my P12 runs at approx 35% load (235 - 250W). Pushing it hard (pre at same level, Dac at 60-75), it runs at about 40 - 45% (275 - 300W). Very rarely, I’ll get a very brief spike at around 410-420.
