PS Audio Stellar Power Plant 3

The Stellar™ Power Plant™ 3 is our most compact high-end personal power generating station: an all new class of affordable Power Plant AC regenerator that takes ordinary wall voltage and rebuilds it into perfect AC.

The Stellar 3 features an ultra-low impedance analog AC power amplifier, pure DSD FPGA based analog sine wave generator, and low distortion high-dynamic-peak-capable outputs found only in PS Audio Power Plants. The Stellar 3 is capable of fully powering most small to medium sized systems bringing forth all that’s possible from your HiFi system, ensuring you get the same great performance every time you listen.

The P3 includes 3 separate zones delivering 300 watts of pure continuous regenerated power, 500 watts of short term power(up to 30 seconds), and dynamic peak power (3 second or less) of a whopping 900 watts for explosive dynamics. From small to medium power amplifiers to all your source equipment, the Stellar Power Plant 3 will work magic on your system’s performance with pure, regenerated power. The Stellar 3 also includes up to 1000 watts of filtered and protected power for larger power amplifiers.

With your system powered directly from the output of the Stellar 3, dynamics and openness are breathtaking. New voices, new harmonics and a renewed sense of musicality are yours the moment the Stellar 3 starts up. This is 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.

How it works

The Stellar Power Plant 3 takes your incoming AC power and converts it to DC, similar to what comes out of a battery, and then with patented PS Audio technology regenerates and produces new sine-wave-perfect, regulated high current AC power. In the process of regeneration, any problems commonly found on your power line such as low voltage, distorted waveforms, sagging power, flat-topping and noise are eliminated.

Since the introduction of Power Plant regenerator technology in 1997 many reviewers, as well as many thousands of customers around the world, have experienced for themselves just how critical, essential and unique a Power Plant is. One long-time reviewer remarked that “It is the first component anyone serious about high-quality audio should get.”

It’s good to understand the importance of power in a high-end audio system. Everything we hear through our system is really the power from our home’s wall socket manipulated by our electronics to make music through our speakers. The quality of that power is critical to the success of any high-end system.

Legacy power conditioners

Traditional power conditioners have been widely available for several decades and range in price from a few dollars to multiple thousands.

Most power conditioners on the market today are passive filters. This means there are only passive parts inside such as capacitors, resistors, transformers and coils of wire. Power conditioners do not have the ability to add missing energy back onto the power line to correct for the serious issues in the AC, nor can they lower output impedance—critical to high-performance audio.

While some respected high-end power conditioners do provide better sound for many systems, they are only scratching the proverbial surface—unable to address the fundamental problems found on the AC line. They cannot rise to the level of an active regenerator ensuring your listening experience will always be the same. Quite simply put, by relying on passive conditioners to clean AC power, one relinquishes the performance, security, and reliability of an active PS Power Plant.

Power Plants are not power conditioners

Power Plants are personal AC generators that provide hard-working perfected results from the AC power line. Power regeneration uses active components like those found in large and powerful audio amplifiers to rebuild the AC power and produce clean, clear, distortion-free, regulated AC to the equipment.

Power Plants also provide excellent protection and cleaning of radio, cell phone, and computer interference, but more importantly, regeneration provides a steady, regulated, ultra-low impedance source of pure AC, unaffected by the equipment’s demands for power.

The key to the Power Plant’s success and what makes it so unique in the industry is the way it makes the power better.

Instead of simple filtering, as a legacy power conditioner does, the Power Plant repairs the main power issues caused by the equipment itself: dynamic fluctuations.

Dynamic fluctuations occur with every power amplifier or receiver on the market. When a loud musical passage is reproduced, the power amplifier draws more power from the wall to feed the loudspeakers. When this occurs, the voltage at the wall decreases in direct relationship with the loudness of the musical passage. Louder is worse.

Traditional power conditioners only worsen this already bad situation
If, on the other hand, the system is powered from a Power Plant AC regenerator, the problem is entirely eliminated. Dynamic voltage fluctuations are stopped completely and the power amp receiving perfectly regulated, steady AC power regardless of the demands from the power amplifier.

In a high-end system where perfection is hoped for and compromise is not an option that’s acceptable, the improvements brought by a Power Plant are instantly recognized with a simple audition that shows both with and without perfected power.
