PS Audio PerfectWave P10.
Two years old. Very little use. I estimate that it has been powered on for less than 100 hours. At one time, I was going to set up two systems in my house where this would go, but it never came to fruition which is why it is low usage. Recently, I have it on my current rack but it is superfluous to my Triton Hdyra. This is in excellent condition. I have original box and materials (which I will need 48 hours to get out of storage in the event of a sale), and of course the remote as you can see in the pic. I will pay shipping via UPS ground at the asking price. Anything else, buyer pays.
The PerfectWave P10 is the
largest and most advanced high-end personal power generating station in the
world. Capable of powering any size system with pure sine wave power, generated
internally with a fully analog power amplifier, the P10 brings forth all that’s
possible from your system and ensures you get the same great performance every
time you listen.
The P10 is 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.
With your system powered directly from the 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 ac building a firm
and reliable foundation for your system that will serve you for years to come.
The touch panel
Touch the full color
display on the front of the Power Plant and a whole world of opportunities open
up. From here you can change all your settings such as the turn on/off
sequence, adjust the output voltage to the perfect level, turn individual zones
on or off and measure the power quality with either the built in oscilloscope
or the THD analyzer.
The P10’s front panel
controls offer a wealth of options not normally associated with AC power
products such as the ability to measure the distortion of the incoming and
outgoing waveforms plus the ability to actually see the waveforms with the
One of the major
advantages of generating new power from old is the ability to also generate new
waveforms that enhance the capabilities of the power feeding your equipment.
MultiWave extends the
peak charging time of the sine wave so connected equipment has more energy
storage and less power supply ripple. Turning MultiWave on is like adding a
larger capacitor bank to your connected equipment’s power supply. The audible
results are dramatic and produce a bigger soundstage that sounds far more
natural than with a simple sine wave.
CleanWave is another
unique feature to the Power Plants and helps connected equipment demagnetize
their transformers. AC power is never quitesymmetrical and the small asymmetry
that occurs can magnetize connected power transformers.
Activating CleanWave from
either the Power Plant remote control or front panel touch screen can remove
this problem from connected transformers resulting in far cleaner audio.
100 times lower output impedance
Low output impedance is
critical to maintaining a dynamic and robust presentation. Dynamic sags in the
power line occur whenever your power hungry equipment demand power to drive
your loudspeakers or projector causing noticeable degradation in the
performance. Placing anything in the path of the power, like a power
conditioner, only worsens the problem.
A Power Plant, on the
other hand, regulates the power and provides a constant output irregardless of
the dynamic demands of power hungry equipment or your neighbors. When your
power amp is asked to produce loud orchestral levels you want to make sure it
has all the power it needs. Power Plants have such low output impedance that
even the hungriest of amplifiers won’t be starved for clean AC power. The
results of feeding your equipment with low output impedance are
dramatic:unrestrained dynamics even under the loudest passages, an open wide
soundstage that does not collapse with volume and a naturalness to the music
that is remarkable.
Owners who have invested
in a Power Plant can rest assured their connected equipment will be safe from
any power line event such as over voltage, under voltage, surges, spikes and
potentially threatening problems.
The input voltage to the
Power Plant is fully protected by state-of-the-art clamping devices and the
output of the Power Plant is fully regulated so even large voltage swings that
would normally damage connected equipment are made safe by either clamping or
regulating. In most cases, connected equipment enjoys the protection and performance
benefits of fully regulated power, even under extreme circumstances.
High current soft start
measure found on some Power Plant models is a high power soft start feature.
The P10 has a separate
high-current zone that soft starts even the biggest power amplifiers.
With a Power Plant
there’s no longer any need to worry. Using the unique high current zone built
into the Power Plant, even power amplifiers that might trip a home’s circuit
breaker are soft started and power up as nice and polite as could be.
This soft start feature
also helps prolong the life of connected equipment from large inrush currents
needed to fill up empty power supply capacitors.
Monitor your system’s heartbeat
You can monitor your
power quality and performance of your equipment from the front panel of the P10
with both its real time distortion analyzer and workingoscilloscope. 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.
