Uncover all that’s been missing in your music
The largest and most advanced high-end personal power generating station in the world, the P10 is pure state of the art. Capable of powering any size system with pure sine wave power, nothing comes even close to a P10′s ability to bring forth all that’s possible from your system and ensuring you get the same great performance every time you listen. Music comes alive as never before with a P10.
With your system powered directly from the pure output of the P10, dynamics and openness are breathtaking. New voices, new harmonics and a renewed sense of musicality are yours the moment the P10 starts up. This is clearly one of the most important pieces of audio equipment you can own – building a firm and reliable foundation for your system that will serve you for years to come.
Our biggest and best ever
The P10 Power Plant is by far our biggest and best Power Plant yet. With 5 separate regenerated zones and 1500 watts of pure regenerated power the P10 can handle any size system you want to power. From medium to large power amplifiers to the smallest pieces of source equipment, the P10 will work magic on your system’s performance. Only the very finest high-end system around the world use the P10 Power Plant and this is the piece to strive for. Once you own a P10 nothing else will do.
The P10′s AC regenerator takes the power you’re given from the utility, converts it to DC and then regenerates brand new and perfect power once again for up to 1500 watts of pure AC – enough to power medium to large sized systems including the power amplifier and everything else in your audio chain that provides the all important control and source material.
The P10 has a built in oscilloscope, distortion analyzer and full color touch screen on the front panel to give you the ultimate in control of our biggest and finest Power Plant model ever.
Every inch of this beautiful metal sculpture has been lovingly hand-built by PS specialists and designed to give your system the ultimate level of performance possible.
Which Power Plant to choose?
Having a Power Plant in the system is the essential element every high-end audio and music lover needs to make sure the sound quality and performance of the system is up to your expectations day in and day out. Choosing the right model of Power Plant depends on a combination of budget and system needs.
Any one of the three Power Plant models is capable of powering an entire high-end audio or video system for most people. There are the rare exceptions where owners have two huge power amps or perhaps a video projector that consumes a disproportionate amount of power requiring the addition of a second Power Plant.
Power Plants can deliver up to 85% of the power coming out of the standard AC wall socket in your home – enough for just about any sized system. Each one of the three Power Plant models provides more power and better sound quality than its smaller sibling starting with the P3.
The mighty P10 is, however, capable of handling just about any load possible and is our largest and best sounding of any Power Plant ever built. The P10 is the product to aspire to.
Foundations of power
The Power Plant technology was the foundation of our first power product – in 1997 – in the form of the P300 Power Plant. The P300 and its impact on the world of high-end audio is legendary and exemplified the value of leveraging a new approach to dealing with an old problem. The PerfectWave P10 Power Plant takes your incoming AC power and converts it to DC, and then with patented PS Audio technology, regenerates and amplifies new sine-wave-perfect, high current AC power.
New high current, ultra low distortion AC power created by Power Plant technology delivers stunning performance from your audio and video components.
By now of course, many reviewers as well as many thousands of customers around the world have experienced for themselves just how critical a Power Plant is; the term accessory doesn’t begin to describe its value. One of our customers, a long-time reviewer for one of the established audio journals, remarked that “Its the first component anyone serious about high-quality audio should get.”
Built in Boulder
Boulder Colorado is perhaps one of the best places in the United States to live, work and play. Certainly those of us working at PS Audio think so. Boulder embodies a vibrant healthy lifestyle that is reflected in the handcrafted products we build in our own state of the art facilities.
Each and every Power Plant is assembled from the ground up in our local operation by highly skilled artisans that care about every piece that leaves our dock. With over 7,000 Power Plants operating high-end systems all over the world, we have a commitment to excellence to uphold.
We understand that each product we build is an investment our customers make in both the product and our company. Every employee at PS Audio is proud to let the world know it’s “Built in Boulder”.
What’s inside the P10 is nothing short of amazing
Inside the P10 Power Plant is an amazing feat of engineering excellence. Not a collection of coils and filters to help Band Aid the power like you’d find in a conditioner, but a powerful and patented Class AB amplifier delivering up to 1500 watts (peak) and 1250 watts continuous of pure AC to your equipment. The pure sine wave that is used to generate the new AC power is delivered from a low distortion DAC built into the Power Plant along with sophisticated software based measurement and monitoring systems that keep the output of the P10 low impedance, low distortion and lightning fast.
All one needs to do is simply attempt to pick up the P10 and compare its 72 pounds of solid brute force to that of a any other power conditioner to understand what’s going on. Having your own personal low distortion, analog based power generating stations in your home is not something that can be accomplished through any means other than serious electronics converting your home’s wall power to perfect AC.
Keep your system running and everything green
Our new network technology on board provides unprecedented control and monitoring of all your connected devices. Automatically reboot routers, modems, and network devices when Internet dropouts occur. Schedule devices to power on and off automatically optimizing power consumption in your system. Receive emails automatically when power occurrences occur, as the PerfectWave Premier P10 is automatically reacting on it’s own; all made possible by PS connected technology and PS Audio’s connected servers.
Once your system is powered by a P10 Power Plant all you need to do is go to the web through any web enabled device, including a Blackberry or iPhone, and access the P10’s control panel if you wish. From the P10’s control panel any connected equipment can be rebooted, turned on or off, or have its status checked. It’s that simple.
Monitor your system’s heartbeat
You can monitor your power quality from the front panel of the P10 with both its real time distortion analyzer and working oscilloscope. Measure everything that’s going on affecting your system’s performance. You can also monitor and control your P10 over the internet from anywhere in the world.
The P10 will monitor your power line quality and report any problems to you through the web page, text alerts or emails sent anywhere you wish. It’s up to you. The P10’s real-time and on-line measurement system includes surges, voltage levels, power usage and power quality as measured by THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) on the line.
The data is stored on our servers and available via the web interface for the P10. Customers can look at power quality over time, or drill down to specific times of day to find out if there’s a problem involving the home’s power. Sagging voltages, high distortion and multiple brownouts are occurring more than one might think. With the installation of a P10 in the system, you can accurately record events and present them to the utility company for repair or just keep a log.
With a P10 system installed, not only can you check system and power line status from anywhere in the world, get emails sent to you from the device (if you want) and be assured you’re always connected to the internet, but you will also be able to go a lot greener than ever before.
The P10 will allow you to schedule system ‘vacations’ or down time so you’re not burning power when you don’t need to. This can be in the middle of the night, or when you’re on vacation and when you’re ready, the P10 turns everything back on for you zone-by-zone. Perhaps there are a few critical components you want to remain on, but others are OK to shut down and save power. No problem.
To access this feature there is a simple graphical calendar. Simply click on the dates you want the system to turn off and the dates you want it to come back on and everything will be ready for you upon your return. You can schedule your equipment (some or all) to be warmed up and ready to. And if your equipment needs an IR command to actually get it out of standby, that’s no problem either. The P10can easily send IR commands on schedule as well.
Input naming and customization
With 5 zones available (on US units) on the P10 it is important to know which piece of equipment is being powered by which zone so you can access from either the front panel or the web interface. On a P10 it’s easy. You can name each zone anything you wish via the P10’s easy to use graphical interface available online or through the front panel touch screen.
Once the outlets are named then it’s quite easy to schedule when they turn on/off or the sequence that they are powered on. For example, you may wish for all your sources to turn on first, warm up and then when you decide it’s long enough, your power amps will turn on.
Some power quality problems can be serious, such as repeated brown or blackouts, high levels of surges or equipment downtime. Many customers will want to know right away if their home has a problem so they can take immediate action.
The P10 is setup to generate email and text alerts to any designated recipient.
IR and trigger controls
In the back of the P10 there are two mini jacks that can be assigned as either an IR input or output or a DC trigger transmitter or receiver. For the IR capabilities, the P10 can be assigned up to 15 separate IR commands for any zone and these IR broadcasts can be triggered by any number of assignable events. This helps P10 maintain complete control over not only the AC power to your system, but by directly controlling that same equipment through a remote control.
If you have equipment that needs a DC trigger to turn it on or off remotely, you can assign one of the mini jacks to be either the sending or receiving unit for these commands and remotely turn on/off equipment or have that equipment remotely turn on/off the P10.
Time to step up to the best
Now: if you haven’t yet been witness to the powerful effect a PS Audio Power Plant can have, its time to get to your dealer and see and hear how good the system you own can really be.
Seriously, it doesn’t get any better than this..
