PS Audio Launches Power Regenerator for Stellar Line

PS Audio’s Stellar Line of gear is no stranger around here, with the M700 mono blocs and Gain Cell DAC having spent a few months in the bungalow with me last summer and earning great praise for their price/performance ratio and also an AudioStream Editor’s Choice Award 2018 for the Gain Cell DAC.

At the time of my review I had spoken with one of the key engineers for the Stellar Line – Darren Myers of PS Audio – and he had told me that a regenerator was in the works… looks like his word was good as it’s here now.

With 300 watts of continuous power output (900-watt peak) the P3 as it’s known, shares the same design cues as the rest of the Stellar Line so it will fit in perfectly with your GCD, M700s or S700 stereo amplifier. The idea behind the P3 – like all PS Audio power-related products – according to the company is to “reduce noise and THD to virtually zero, while providing rock steady voltage output…” and “the P3's active regeneration process provides perfect power and lowers the impedance, increasing the dynamics and openness of your system. In addition, the P3 features surge and spike protection so you know your system is safe.”

I use and own the DirectStream Power Plant 20 to handle all my power requirements and if that is anything to go by, the new entry-level P3 should prove to be a perfect companion piece for not only the Stellar Line, but for a lot of audiophiles looking to dip their toes in the power regeneration water.

so realistically how to figure out what I can actually plug into this? ie amplifier, preamp, CD player..."power" of each component to add up to what the Stellar can "handle"? dumb question for a supposed audiophile, but...

That's not a dumb question at all. How many of us are electrical engineers?

I found this on the 'net, hope it helps:

Divide the watts of a given electrical item by the total number of volts available from the electric outlet to calculate amperage draw.

May be Rafe could compare this PS Audio Stellar power regenerator unit with the PS Audio power plant unit he already has, at least for the source components and pre-amp? :-) ..........
