PS 300? "Open ground" reading


#1

Could any help me explain why I don’t get a ground connection from my PS 300 when I check its own IEC with the regenerated energy?

I checked with a AC tester and it shows a"Open Ground" reading.

Thanks

The little plug in ground checkers won’t work because the P300 is putting out a balanced signal. Ignore it.

Hello Paul, thanks for that piece of knowledge. Any advice regarding Multiwave setting for a digital source that doesn’t have a transformer

per se. Just power supply.

I am not sure what you mean by 'not having a transformer. Every electronic device should have a transformer. But MultiWave can be chosen simply by which sounds better.

Paul,

Are the newer P3/P5/P10 devices balanced like that P300?

I’ve heard tell that the Balanced power is somehow better.


#6

The newer units are not balanced (nor is the PPP), but they have much lower output impedance, more reserves, better distortion reducing capability, etc.

And sound better. :)

The newer ones are also more efficient. The original Power Plant series could run very hot.
