PS Audio Shows Advanced Power Station
PS Audio is showing a new version of their Power Plant. The Premier is smaller and runs cooler than its predecessor yet puts out 50% more power (1500 watts continuous). At $2195, it’s not a budget power conditioner, but it’s really in a league of its own. The Premier is actually a power amplifier capable of outputting pure, distortionless (and thus noiseless) 120 volt sine wave AC sufficient to power most entire home theater systems. A case could be made that no combination of conditioners, power line filters and expensive power cords could ever match this at any cost. Included is filtration and surge protection for cable and telephone plus 10 AC outlets.
Below it in the photo is the Quintessence Power Center ($1195) which is passive (not a power amplifier) but has the most capabilities of any power conditioner I’ve seen. Most people seem to be spending hundreds on power conditioners. Why not invest in one that will actually make a dramatic difference in the sound?
