High-end home theater components can struggle to perform at their best with the noisy power delivered by many electrical grids. PS Audio just released two next generation AC regenerators, the PerfectWave Power Plant 5 and PerfectWave Power Plant 10, to help those audio- and videophile devices reach their full potential. The P5 and P10 feature patented PS Audio technology that regenerates perfect sine wave, ultra-low distortion AC power to connected AV components.
That means you’ll hear the sound from the audio and video content you’re listening to and watching, not the noise from your power source. The P10 has an internal high current analog amplifier that produces ultra low distortion, ultra low output impedance and highly regulated new AC power for connected equipment. It delivers up to 1250 watts of continuous power and 70 amps of instantaneous current. The P5 delivers 1000 watts of continuous power and 50 amps of instantaneous current.
The PerfectWave Power Plant 10 features five programmable IsoZones, providing separate differential mode filters to clean up noise generated by the equipment connected to the Power Plant itself. A heat sink provides cooling without the need for fans, which could create more noise and interference.
A touch screen provides controls for both PerfectWave Power Plant models, as well as a web interface via PS Audio’s Globalnet service. An onboard Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) meter and oscilloscope display and compare the AC power from the wall and the Power Plants. Both models ship in January, with the suggested retail of $4499.99 for the PerfectWave Power Plant 10 and $2999.99 for the PerfectWave Power Plant 5.
