DirectStream P20 Power Plant

Reference standard AC power delivery and protection

Built in Boulder
All units hand-made to order in Boulder, Colorado

Demanding systems require remarkable power. The DirectStream P20 Power Plant is our finest expression of the art of delivering protected, pure, regulated, distortion-free AC power. With peak power levels of 3600 watts, no equipment can tax the mighty P20. Finally, your most coveted components have the opportunity to unleash their full potential, no longer hindered by dynamic drops in AC caused by the unavoidable resistance of the miles of wiring between you and the power station. DirectStream P20 regulates both long-term fluctuations and peak dynamic without deviation, ensuring a solid foundation from which to build a state-of-the-art system. Its low output impedance and unhindered AC delivery are equivalent to less than 50 feet of 12 gauge wire connected directly to your city power source without the connecting miles of wire, the many transformers, and the multiple neighbors weakening and contaminating your power. The most demanding music systems require nothing less than the P20.

DirectStream P20 Power Plant

Product Description

The DirectStream P20 is our most powerful AC regenerator ever with 2000 watts of pure regenerated power, enough for a single product or an entire system. The massive P20 is our finest expression of the art of pure power delivery. And the first US unit to accept both 20 amp and 15 amp power cables. Regardless of incoming power quality the P20 outputs clean, protected, low impedance, regulated power you can count on for the most demanding systems in the world.

Don’t starve your music. A P20 gives you improved dynamics, far better bass and a much bigger, open soundstage. Take one home and try it today.

This product qualifies for our risk free in-home trial in the continental United States when purchased directly from PS Audio.
