I ordered a new P3 power regenerator from PS audio on Thursday afternoon and it just arrived Monday.
My skepticism over any piece of equipment regulates the powerline as no more than a diminishing rate of return has been destroyed.
These units are frequently viewed as snake oil. I viewed them as probably helping some, but it’s really just “what else can we sell the guy who already bought everything?”.
I know these units still take a while to break in, but right out of the box the results were simply shocking. Everything was clearer and more tightly focused.
My system is Pass Labs Aleph30, Magnepane1.6QR’s, OPPO Sonica DAC, and all Mogami cables. I’ll be upgrading the PSA DSD DAC when the new one comes out or used prices drop.
Reading through the DSD mod thread, there’s so much related to cleaning up the power supplies. The difference feeding audio equipment a noise free rocksolid power source like this is obvious when heard. I bet people spend more money on power supplies and equipment than purchasing a unit like this to drive the system.
A good friend with even higher level system than mine bought PowerPlant P12 and after 2 mins listening he said he will never run without one again.
Based on his referral I bought one. Same experience, took 2 minutes to decide to keep it.
30 day evalreturn period is completely unnecessary, it take no more than 3 minutes to slap yourself on the back for the “buy decision”.
