New P20 ..... more details please?


#1

Paul mentioned in the P5 vs P10 thread that they were working on a ‘20’, which I presume would be a P20.

Would be keen to hear more details, how many sockets, (UK especially), dimensions, power handling and any other details etc.


#2

Nothing the share just yet. In Skunk Works right now. Bigger, more power, more outlets is about all I can share right now. These things take time and change with it.


#3

More outlets. :slight_smile: My speculation was the number of outlets would be the same due to physical constraints.

This will be an interesting beast.


#4

Just to wildly speculate … a P10 is about twice the size of a P5, so a P20 must be twice the size of a 10. Hence lots of room for outlets. Now for a case/housing, hmmm? How about one of those small apartment/dorm refrigerators! The door could still be operational for easy service! You can thank me later …giggle_gif

P20 will be 25% taller than P10 and with handles.

Ooh! You realize, of course, that becomes the case for the BHK 600 monoblocks, right? inlove_gif

One of my friends came over after I got the BHK250/PowerBase combo. He looked at it sitting on the floor and said there should be room to keep beer inside. To which I replied "Yes, but only if you like your beer very warm."

Handles sound like a good idea. A small forklift might be even better. itwasntme_gif

My problem is that I don’t have room to store the forklift. I’ve seen appliance movers that avoid floor damage by lifting the heavy item on a cushion of air. Build a PowerBase with the lift pads built in. Just connect the air supply, flip a switch, and you’re good to go. Would work for BHK amps and P10 as well as P20. The air supply is small and can be stored in a closet when not needed.


#11

Probably preferred by new customers, but not worth upgrading from a P10? I guess we have to wait and see…


#12

Forklift indeed! Just imagine the shipping. Probably will have to go freight, and how does one get it up/down stairs? White glove delivery will be mandatory. I think SSW has got it right, the new chassis will be perfect for 600 watt monoblocks, just the thing for the new PS Audio statement speakers!


#13

I expect wiring the two dedicated 20 amp circuits to the listening room to power the P20 will be a large bother as well.


#14

Elk, excellent point!

#16

Sounds like I might be able to use one ring P20 to rule power them all… I wonder if that new box will be capable of driving BHK250 and Martin-Logan Summits, what would greatly simplify the power cabling, connectors, extenders, etc.


#17

I always appreciate a reference to Der Ring des Nibelungen.


#18

It sounds like Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings to me. “One Ring to rule them all” is part of the inscription inside Sauron’s ring of power.


#19

Both used almost the same wording :wink: Tolkien was clearly familiar with Icelandic, Norse and German sagas wink

Just a bit.

And probably listened to Wagner. :slight_smile:
