Demanding systems require remarkable power. The DirectStream P20 Power Plant is our finest expression of the art of delivering protected, pure, regulated, distortion-free AC power. With peak power levels of 3600 watts, no equipment can tax the mighty P20. Finally, your most coveted components have the opportunity to unleash their full potential, no longer hindered by dynamic drops in AC caused by the unavoidable resistance of the miles of wiring between you and the power station.
DirectStream P20 regulates both long-term fluctuations and peak dynamic demands to within 1/10th of a volt, ensuring a solid foundation from which to build a state-of-the-art system. Its low output impedance and unhindered AC delivery are equivalent to less than 50 feet of 12 gauge wire connected directly to your city power source without the connecting miles of wire, the many transformers, and the multiple neighbors weakening and contaminating your power. The most demanding music systems require nothing less than the P20. Pure power. Engineered without compromise.
When it comes to regenerated AC power PS Audio wrote the book. With two decades of engineering and a patented architecture in hand they built the biggest and best Power Plant ever. The P20 converts your home’s variable, compromised AC power into pure DC, then back again into safe, protected, regulated, perfect AC. The P20 will improve system performance like nothing else.
The P20 is all new in design and construction. Instead of wires to route power, there are aerospace-grade pure-copper, 1/4″ thick gold-plated buss bars handling all current paths.
Reimagined DSD engine. Our cleanest source of power yet.
DirectStream Power ushers in a new world of purity with a clean, analog-like DSD generator. A Power Plant regenerator ‘s precise output is tied to its internal sine wave generator, not some coal-fired monstrosity feeding miles of noisy powerlines. The P20’s FPGA based DSD engine delivers the cleanest, lowest noise sine waves of any regenerator in the world.
Twice the size. Twice the power. Half the impedance.
System performance is improved by lowering the AC impedance, ensuring dynamic AC regulation, and providing instant, unlimited reserves of clean power of up to 70 amp peaks. The P20 does it all, with twice the output amplifier devices, twice the power supply capacity of the P10. Its available 20 amp input circuitry and unprecedentedly low output impedance make the P20 the most powerful regenerator ever.
100 pounds of pure muscle. Sheathed in solid metal.With twice the number of output devices and double the power supply storage of any previous Power Plant, DirectStream P20 is the new benchmark for power products. Regardless of the quality of AC coming into P20, your equipment is guaranteed clean, safe power, with significantly lower distortion than ever before. Safe, regulated to within 1/10th of a volt, P20 provides unquestionable purity for systems of all sizes.
Upgraded internal architecture. Nothing spared in execution.Rethinking decades of engineering has resulted in greater phase accuracy, transient response, increased error correction, improved regulation and 3X our lowest output impedance ever. P20 brings you closer to your utility’s power source than ever before, eliminating all noise and artifacts of the miles of wire and connecting transformers in the way. Think of P20 as better than your direct connection to the power’s source because it fills in what’s missing.
Not just another conditioner. Rebuilding AC from scratch.Power conditioners are passive collections of capacitors, resistors, transformers, and coils of wire which lack the ability to add missing energy back onto the power line. Power Plants use active components, like those found in large and powerful audio amplifiers, to store and release energy for peak demands (up to 70 amps), rebuild the AC signal and produce clean, clear, distortion-free, regulated AC for your equipment. When performance matters, why compromise?
PowerPlay is HERE!
PowerPlay is a unique feature to our Regenerators that allows you to track in-coming & out-going THD, voltage and wattage, and we’re excited to let you know that the newest and best version of PowerPlay is now available at right on our website. To use, just make sure you’re logged into psaudio.com, on the top menu click on My PS, then scroll down to PowerPlay.
Note in the first two graphs, Voltage and then Total Harmonic Distortion, how the wiggly top line represents the incoming AC wall voltage while the lower straight line shows you how the Power Plant Regenerator corrects what’s wrong. You will be able to see the history of your home’s incoming power quality and how the Power Plant straightens everything out.
