Stellar PowerPlant 3 - Refurbished

Stellar PowerPlant 3 - Refurbished

Our most affordable AC regenerator, the P3 protects, purifies, and powers sources, as well as small to medium sized systems.
The Stellar Power Plant 3 stands on the shoulders of giants. Built as an evolution from our renowned P12, P15, and P20 the P3 is our most affordable regenerator – perfect for powering sources and small to medium systems. Power Plants generate sine-wave-perfect, regulated, high current AC power from your home’s AC. Problems on your power line such as low voltage, distorted waveforms, sagging power, and noise are eliminated and the power quality enhanced. The Stellar P3 PowerPlant provides greatly improved performance and safety from just plugging into the wall socket, along with far better dynamics, more authoritative bass, and a much bigger, more open soundstage than any passive power conditioner on the market.

  • Design

    The Stellar P3 PowerPlant features an ultra-low impedance analog AC power amplifier, pure DSD FPGA based analog sine wave regenerator, and low distortion high-dynamic-peak-capable outputs found only in PS Audio PowerPlants. Designed with elegant simplicity in mind, the P3 is a plug and play device that will provide you with perfect power and worry free protection from surges, spikes, and ugly power without any fuss. Regulate, remove distortion, and get better performance.

  • Application

    The P3 is the perfect companion for improving system performance and ensuring a safe environment for you Hi-Fi system. Providing 300 watts of continuous power output and peaks of 1000 watts, the P3 is just right for source gear or an entire systems running small to medium class AB amps or larger high-efficiency Class D amps like the Stellar M700 monoblocks. The P3 will bring forth all that's possible from your HiFi system, ensuring you get the same great performance every time you listen.

    Technology

    The Stellar P3 PowerPlant takes your incoming AC power and converts it to DC, similar to what comes out of a battery, and then, with patented PS Audio technology, regenerates and produces new sine-wave-perfect, regulated, high-current AC power. In the process of regeneration, any problems commonly found on your power line, such as low voltage, distorted waveforms, sagging power, flat-topping, and noise are eliminated. The input voltage to the PowerPlant is fully protected by state-of-the-art clamping devices and the output is fully regulated so even large voltage swings that would normally damage connected equipment are made safe by either clamping or regulating. With your system powered directly from the ouput of the Stellar P3, dynamics and openness are breathtaking. New voices, new harmonics, and a renewed sense of musicality are yours the moment the P3 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. Not suited for class A or A/B amplification in 220V models.
