P20 Review November 2018 Stereophile


#1

There’s a review of the P20 that I saw in the latest Stereophile that I received today! Very positive!


#2

I don’t pay any attention to any reviews any more.


#3

Why not? There is often a good deal in them you could complain about. :slight_smile:


#4

Which is exactly why I don’t pay attention to them any more.


#5

Any one has the link to the reviews…


#6

It’s possibly not on the website yet, the issue just hit subscribers a few days ago.

I found it interesting that they said it made the most sense to use the P20 with a 20 amp circuit. Hadn’t thought about that before.

I thought the review was very well written and explained our electrical infrastructure very well with regard to how it effects amplifier operation and dynamic range. I own a P20 and love how it helps my system. I even have my Sbooster connected to it, supporting my Roon Nucleus+. I have been using the Roon Nucleus+ w/ DSP (equalizer) to see the SQ. After 10 hrs listening, the Sbooster is not even a little warm and the sound with Roon Nucleus+ is just amazing, fast, and huge meta-data collection. Since I put my system together with all the components, it just sounds amazing; however, never really thought about just plugging the PSA BHK250 into the wall instead of the P20. Anyway, very good review. I tried getting a link to the review on their website and searching and saw nothing. I guess in a few weeks it will appear.

I don’t think he said, “to die for.”
F/u on the Sprout in that issue as well.


#9

Anyone know how the psa power kits work in the uk? I know a lot of stuff designed in the US doesn’t port well to the uk due to how the Neutral line is grounded differently etc.


#10

We have literally thousands in the UK and they are loved. They work great!


#11

How are neutrals grounded in the UK? Not using a bonding jumper at the service or utility transformer?


#12

Not too sure, it was 30+ years ago I did my electrical principals. I think ours are grounded at the power station, so in home it sits at about 0.5 x live voltage I.e. 120v compared to local earth.


#13

Thanks. That just sounds like a 120/240 service except you don’t use the 120 for branch circuits and we do. I assume you also have some kind of equipment ground (separate conductor or metallic raceway) to provide a low-impedance fault path to open over-current protection devices.

I believe the third ground pin all go to 1 central ground pole in each building, I dont think that goes anywhere else.
