Upgraded P5 to P12

Been listening for about 2 hours and the improvement is across the board. Everything is effortless. Better bass control and detail, sweeter top end, mids natural and detailed. P12 is a significant upgrade from p5.

Well done PS Audio team.

I also have both devices. Both are in use in separate systems. Statistically, the P12 (2019) performs about 10 percent better than the P5 (2012) with respect to THD.

Not sure I can pinpoint a sound quality difference though. Both are great units.

What I have discovered is that the auditable differences with major/minor changes to ones system is directly correlated to the resolution ones system is capable of.

My current set up is very sensitive to changes in the signal path. My previous systems capability was less sensitive.

Great to hear! Crazy how much the difference can be from a P5 to a P12. Glad you’re enjoying it!
