These are clean trade in's traded in on much more expensive bases and are a wonderful conditioner & Base especially at this low price.

Comes with basic IEC Power Cord, for best conditioning the better the Power Cord used the better it's performance will be.

Great for any PS Audio PerfectWave Product and virtually any Audio Component even speakers !

The PowerBase is both a vibration cancelling and power cleaning isolation base for equipment. Set any audio or video product on top of the PowerBase and enjoy cleaner more dynamic sound or video as a result. Vibration cancelling and power cleaning in one convenient package. Holds up to 85 pounds, accepts up to two units.

The PerfectWave PowerBase combines a dual diffused isolation base with a one-way-gate power conditioner into an elegant, component level product base. Use the PowerBase for source, control or power equipment and enjoy a remarkable improvement in the space between instruments, vocals and soundstage.

Lowers the smearing and grunge associated with microphonics of equipment, especially tube, turntables, CD players and source gear. Helps any product reach its full potential with cleaner power and lower induced noise from your loudspeakers.

The Powerbase is designed to isolate an audio component both electrically and physically, in one comparatively small and, to my eyes, attractive package. With a footprint of 17″ by 14″ and a height of 2.5″, the platform/conditioner comes in black or silver, and is small enough visually to not dominate the equipment rack the way many other platforms or isolation devices can. Despite the small and neat appearance, the base weighs a hefty 25 pounds (according to my weighing scale) and you need to think ahead when moving it. Adjustable feet allow for leveling and, once in place, the black model I tested blended cleanly into my racks. Indeed, it formed such a synergistic visual match with my SME 20/2 turntable that you might believe these two were made for each other.

The platform itself is plugged into your electrical supply and an internal conditioner delivers clean AC to your components through two rear outlets. These outlets share a single IsoZone filter, PS Audio’s trademarked technology, which has been used in several generations of their successful line conditioning and regeneration products. As far as I can determine, the physical isolation of the PowerBase is entirely passive—the electrical conditioning serves only to deliver clean power to the components supported on top or nearby and is not used to enable vibration control in the platform.

The physical isolation results from the use of a ¼” steel top that rests on two layers of sorbothane, one stiff, the other soft. The aim is apparently to couple the component to the airborne vibrations, which seems counterintuitive but according to the PS Audio documentation is actually a requirement for masking vibration induced noise and the resulting sonic ‘ghost’ images. In combination, the two sorbothane layers can hold up to 100 lbs, with a large sweet spot reported to be between 15 and 85 lbs. Short of my speakers, this range covers just about every component in my rig, so assuming it can be made to fit, the PowerBase has the potential to be used under any component.

The rather active owners’ forum on the PS Audio website offers a wealth of opinion and experience with the company’s products, and I learned there that the PowerBase was originally not designed for turntables or even sensitive front-end components. While these seem a very obvious application area, the genesis of the platform was to provide support and a clean electrical feed to the company’s own PerfectWave line regenerators. The operation of the PerfectWave series of conditioners can apparently push noise back down the line, which might get picked up by any part of your rig that is not itself drawing power directly from the regenerator. Once built however, the application to other components just suggested itself. When PS Audio chief Paul McGowan tried one on his own digital front-end, he was convinced the new platforms had wider application, so in I jumped, ready to try one under any component I could get it to fit.
