PS Audio DirectStream P12 Power Plant
In 1998 PS Audio reinvented AC power. A lot has changed over these last 20 years. The DirectStream Power Plants brings to even the most demanding systems remarkable dynamics, stunning transparency, and holographic imaging. Pure power. Engineered without compromise.
The DirectStream P12 is PS Audio's most compact high-end personal power generating station in the world. It is the successor of the venerable P5 Power Plant relied upon by thousands. The P12 is all new, based on the P5, but rebuilt from the ground up. It features an ultra-low impedance analog power amplifier, pure DSD FPGA based sine wave generator, and the lowest distortion available in a Power Plant. The P12 is capable of powering most small to medium sized systems and bringing forth all that’s possible from your system ensuring you get the same great performance every time you listen.
The P12 includes 4 separate zones and 1250 watts of pure regenerated power, delivered to each receptacle through thick copper bus bars. From medium to large power amplifiers to the smallest pieces of source equipment, the P12 will work magic on your system’s performance. Many of the very best high-end system around the world rely on the P12 Power Plant for protection, purity, and performance.
With your system powered directly from the output of the P12, dynamics and openness are breathtaking. New voices, new harmonics and a renewed sense of musicality are yours the moment the P12 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.
