Not trying to stir the pot


#1

On PS Audio’s main webpage, on the revolving products list, is listed the PC AS Power Plant, and under it says, “The single biggest improvement you can make in your music system. A Power Plant to feed everything.”

However, I’ve heard Paul say many times that the biggest improvement one should seek to make is in choosing the right speakers. Am I misreading this or misunderstanding the correlation between the importance of something like a Power Plant and the critical importance of starting with the speakers first?

I understand, as the product page says, that something like a Power Plant can serve as an important foundation for any system, but “the single biggest improvement?”

For any piece of equipment I would still stand by this statement. Though you bring up a good inconsistency. I do believe that if you had to single out any one element in the system as important I believe the speakers matter most because they are the most flawed. That said, without a solid power foundation like that from a Power Plant you’ll never get all you can hope for without one.

So the statement “The single biggest improvement you can make in your music system. A Power Plant to feed everything.” Still stands when it comes to making improvements to an existing system - because implicit in that statement is the assumption you already have great speakers.

Confusing, yes, I know. Sorry.

No apology necessary, Paul, and thank you for the clarification. I figured it might be implicit as you related.
