P15 Is In The House


#1

My P15 was delivered today and immediately hooked up. It only took 1 minute to realize this is a very special unit. It replaces my PPP which gave me 12 great years of listening enjoyment.

Congrats!


#3

Good luck! Hope it brings you as much enjoyment as my P-10 does me!


#4

Thanks to both…I’m already enjoying the benefits. Don’t think I’ll get much sleep tonight. :sunglasses:


#5

You won’t!


#6

Amazing isn’t it how much clean power does for music! Congrats and enjoy!


#7

Thanks for sharing and I’m glad your new P15 is doing well!

In what areas do you find it outperforms the PPP?


#8

I only have about 2 hours of listening but for starters there in more impact and punch to the music. The is a sense of more air around the instruments, a deeper and wider soundstage and wind instruments and symbols don’t have that harshness that I would hear on some recordings.

I’m sure as the P15 settles in and I have more listening time things might change a bit. I’ll keep the forum posted.

Kudos to PS Audio for a magnificent product.

Thanks for your feedback on the P15! How are things settling now that you’re a few days along?

I see that @audiophilehi is selling the PPP. What is the lifespan on something like that? Right now I’m using a TrippLite Isobar surge protector to power my admittedly mid-fi setup. Would I be better served with a used PPP or should I wait for the Stellar regenerator to be released?

That really comes down to usage and expectations, I think. If I remember correctly audiophilehi has his PPP listed for $750, which is a nice deal.

The trouble is that PPPs are on the older side and not covered under warranty. If you go for it, it might last a month, or a year, or 10 years. There’s not really any good way to know. This is generally the case for any older used gear.

The Stellar P3 will be covered under our 3 year warranty and will perform better than the PPP. However, the PPP also offers more power output than the P3, and the P3 will be a good bit more expensive than this used PPP.

So I suppose it comes down to your budget and how you would handle any unexpected PPP repairs if they come up. For reference, the out of warranty repair cost for a PPP is $500 plus shipping.

Thank you for the insight. I greatly appreciate it.
