I posted my inital thoughts on another forum and also wanted to share here.
I have owned several Power Plants in the past and they have served me well. The new DSP 20 is very good and it “walks the talk”...I have a ASR Emitter ii amp, that has shut down just about every power conditioner or regenerator (sometimes even just on start up). And when it didn’t send them to protection mode, it taxed them considerably. I resorted to going straight into the wall via my dedicated 20amp circuits and forgot about power conditioning or regeneration for a long time....save for MIT’s Z-dulex outlets. Enter the DSP20.... it seems unmoved by the Emitter ii... I sense no struggle or strain at all...Turning the volume higher and higher reveals zero weakness...only strengths. Images remain rock solid, voices sound very natural and smooth, and spatial cues are very easy to hear. When I try to think of its initial performance , the word “finesse” comes to mind.
The unit is only 3 days old and I know once it settles in there will be more magic to be revealed. This is one purchase (in this never-ending hobby) that I can truly say I am blessed to have the ability to afford and I have no regrets. i don’t have to keenly listen for the improvements. The benefits/improvements are rendered in spades!
Here it is in action and trying to earn its spot on my audio team.
