P15 break-in and ability to diminish the difference between good and bad powerline times


#1

P15s have been in my systems for about 24 hours. I’m liking what I’m hearing over the P10s they replaced!

What are others experiencing as far as unit break-in? The highs still have a bit of the quality I associate with electrolytic caps breaking-in. I’ve also heard descriptions of AC outlets exhibiting similar qualities before break-in. I’d expect this to diminish in 2-3 weeks. Anyone else experience that?

Also, the thing I expected the P10 to do that it didn’t was eliminate the sonic difference between bad powerline times (weekdays days and evenings) and good powerline times (weekend days, weekend evenings / nighttimes the best!). I’m not complaining on the results I got from the P10… the SQ I got from them during the ‘bad’ powerline times was better than that of the ‘good’ powerline times without the P10s. AND during ‘good’ powerline times, I was in heaven… until now that I’ve heard what the P15 do. I expect the P15s to be as good or better in this regard. What are other’s experience of this phenomena?

One thing surprised me… I tried the Autotune. One P15 set the Phase Tune to +2, the other to +3. Interesting that I had set my P10s to +2 by ear once this functionality was added a bunch of firmware revisions back.

Next, for PSA, some comments on the full manual… some small omissions.

  1. There’s no detailed picture and call-out of the back panel items.

  2. There’s no explanation of the dots in the upper area of the Meter Screen. I got it, they are representations of the different outlet zones, but a quick note would be useful.

  3. There’s no explanation of the functionality of the trigger in/out connections

  4. There’s no how-to on firmware upgrades.

Finally, for PSA, some requests…

  1. Please make the font type and size on the ‘type’ of each meter display both larger and a more readable type.

  2. Please make the scope displays larger.

Definitely love them! And nothing above are even ‘minor’ flaws, just small requests for info or improvements.
