Features

Regenerated Power is what separates Power Conditioners from Power Plants...

The power that comes out of your home’s wall socket is unregulated, weak and prone to distortion.

Inserting a standard power conditioner only makes that situation worse.  Power Plants take the raw power from the wall, convert it to DC and then regenerate new power that’s regulated, distortion free and powerful.

Inside each Power Plant is a massive power amplifier that delivers the new and distortion free AC to your equipment.  The power amplifier is fed from a low distortion DSP based sine wave generator and controlled from the front panel touch screen of the Power Plant.  

The internal power supply stores enough energy to allow the power amplifier inside the Power Plant to deliver massive amounts of energy to your equipment.  Peaks of more than 70 amps can be delivered when a typical home wall receptacle can only provide 15 amps.

MultiWave and CleanWave take the output of the Power Plant to a new level...

One of the major advantages of generating new power from the old is the ability to also generate new waveforms that enhance the capabilities of the power feeding your equipment.

MultiWave extends the peak charging time of the sine wave so connected equipment has more energy storage and less power supply ripple.  Turning MultiWave on is like adding a larger capacitor bank to your connected equipment’s power supply.  The audible results are dramatic and produce a bigger soundstage that sounds far more natural than with simply a perfect sine wave.

CleanWave is another unique feature to the Power Plants and helps connected equipment demagnetize their transformers.  AC power is never quite symmetrical and the small asymmetry that occurs can magnetize connected power transformer.  

Activating CleanWave from either the Power Plant remote control or front panel touch screen can remove this problem from connected transformers resulting in far cleaner audio.

The Power Plant’s output impedance is over 100 times lower than what your home’s power can provide...

Low output impedance is critical to maintaining a dynamic and robust presentation.  Dynamic sags in the power line occur whenever your power hungry equipment demand power to drive your loudspeakers or projector causing noticeable degradation in the performance.  Placing anything in the path of the power, like a power conditioner, only worsens the problem.

A Power Plant, on the other hand, regulates the power and provides a constant output irregardless of the dynamic demands of power hungry equipment.  When your power amp is asked to produce loud orchestral levels you want to make sure it has all the power it needs.  

Power Plants have such low output impedance that even the hungriest of amplifiers won’t be starved for clean AC power.  The results of feeding your equipment with low output impedance are dramatic:  unrestrained dynamic even under the loudest passages, open wide soundstage that does not collapse with volume and a naturalness to the music that is remarkable.

Power Plants have a separate high-current zone that soft starts even the biggest power amplifiers...

Powering almost any size power amplifier is no problem for a modern Power Plant but some amplifiers are so large that they can trip your home’s circuit breaker just turning them on.  

With a P5 or P10 Power Plant there’s no longer any need to worry.  Using the unique high current zone built into the Power Plant, even power amplifiers that might trip a home’s circuit breaker are soft started and power up as nice and politely as could be.

This soft start feature also helps prolong the life of connected equipment from large inrush currents needed to fill up empty power supply capacitors.

Complete protection from any power line event...

Owners who have invested in a Power Plant can rest assured their connected equipment will be safe from any power line event such as over voltage, under voltage, surges, spikes and potentially threatening problems.

The input voltage to the Power Plant is fully protected by state-of-the-art clamping devices and the output of the Power Plant is fully regulated so even large voltage swings that would normally damage connected equipment are made safe by either clamping or regulating.  In most cases, connected equipment enjoys the protection and performance benefits of fully regulated power, even under extreme circumstances.

In the event of a major surge or spike, the Power Plant will automatically remove power from all connected equipment and shut itself down.  When power is restored to normal, the Power Plant will safely turn all connected equipment back on in the sequence owners have set up for it.
