Lightbulb Brand New P5 / P10 have been introduced.

PS Audio has now discontinued the P5 and P10

The new models known as DSP5 and DSP10 aka DirectStream Power will begin shipping late April.

MSRP for the DSP5 is $4,999
MSRP for the DSP10 is $7,499


I will be posting more on these models shortly.

While I applaud the release of new kit, the price increase is troublesome.

The stuff was already at the threshold of being "too expensive". There doesn't appear to be any cutting edge technology advances in the new models to justify the jump in price. I think PS Audio could be walking the high end audio plank. There are plenty of worthy competitors that offer similar products that provide enthusiast's system needs at more competitive prices. I don't want what my system doesn't need.

Are there competitors? I don't know of any other actual ac regenerator products as hefty as the p10. There may be, but not "plenty".

My post wasn't meant to be a dig on PS Audio product quality or technology, just their pricing strategy.

The PS Audio DSP5 and DSP10 might pique my interest if they have battery backup. At those prices they should.

No battery backup from what I've read at the PS forum, but using technology from their DSD DAC in creating the AC waveform reportedly results in much cleaner power delivery and a corresponding improvement in sonic performance.
