Any observations thus far on how Wireworld and Shunyata PCs synergize with the P20? From what I've read on other threads, PS Audio PCs are not nearly as good as the WW and Shunyata cords. I'm having a hard time deciding between the P20 and the Shunyata Triton v3.

Default New DirectStream P20

Received an email yesterday evening from PS Audio announcing the introduction of their newest power monster. It looks substantial.


http://www.psaudio.com/directstream-p20-power-plant/

Weighs in at $9,999.00. (I hate it when they do that...)

It is substantial, we seen this at RMAF last year, itís a tank all right.

Of course there are two camps on the regenerator and I chose to be in it with no regrets coming from a conditioner.

Not 100% familiar on the differences between the P10 and P20 and I guess the new P10.

I believe Ivan has received a P20 or about to and perhaps can elaborate the sonic benefits gained from such a beast.

There is another post floating around as well.

This statement is from PS Audio , and mirrors my observations also:

In 1998 PS Audio reinvented AC power.

We’ve learned a lot over these last 20 years.

The DirectStream P20 Power Plant is our finest expression of performance to date. It brings to even the most demanding systems remarkable dynamics, stunning transparency, and holographic imaging.

Inside the new P20 is an all-new design using a DSD sine wave engine rather than our older PCM based designs. The cleaner signal, coupled with twice the energy storage, half the output impedance, and double the regulation of any Power Plant ever built, brings a new level of power, purity, and performance to the finest systems
.”

Let's do the math... 4,999 x 2 = 9998. Yep, they doubled it. Then added an extra buck for good measure.
