PS Audio Power Plant Premier Power Regenerator

Conclusions

The PS Power Plant Premier does all it claims to do. A vast improvement on the original Power Plant P300, a single unit can regenerate sufficient power for all but the most current-guzzling amplifiers. It also does so without grossly inflating your electric bill or toasting your room.

Those who think power conditioning and power regeneration units are frill tweaks will have to perform a major mindset adjustment after hearing the Power Plant Premier. It will transform the sound of your audio system, and vastly improve the color and clarity of visuals. What the Power Plant Premier does for bass alone will convince the majority of Secrets readers to give it a serious audition. That, and the under $2000 price, warrant a strong recommendation.
