DirectStream Power Plant 12

The P12 is all new, based on the P5, but rebuilt from the ground up. It features an ultra-low impedance analog power amplifier, pure DSD FPGA based sine wave generator, and the lowest distortion available in a Power Plant. The P12 is capable of powering most small to medium sized systems and bringing forth all that’s possible from your system ensuring you get the same great performance every time you listen.

The DirectStream Power Plant 12 is the successor to the venerable P5 Power Plant. The P12 is completely redesigned from the ground up with three times lower output impedance, lower distortion, a new FPGA based DSD sine wave generator, and an improved level of performance never before attained by any Power Plant of its size. Power Plants take your incoming AC power and regenerate new sine-wave-perfect, regulated high current AC power. In the process of regeneration any problems on your power line such as low voltage, distorted waveforms, sagging power and noise are eliminated. The results are both audibly and visually stunning when powering either audio or video products. Further, the level of protection afforded connected equipment is extraordinary. Feel 100% confident that a P12 will provide pure and safe power under any condition.

The DirectStream Power Plant 12 features an all new analog power amplifier and FPGA sine wave generator based on pure, clean, analog DSD (PDM). The P12 is our most powerful compact regenerator with 1250 watts of pure power. From medium to large power amplifiers to the smallest pieces of source equipment, the P12 will work magic on your system’s performance. Dynamics and openness are breathtaking with the P12.

This is clearly one of the most important pieces of audio equipment you can own. Expect far better micro and macro dynamics as well as a cleaner, lower noise background.

Don’t starve your music or risk damaging your equipment. A P12 gives you greatly improved performance and safety from just plugging into the wall socket and far better dynamics, bass and a much bigger, open soundstage than any passive power conditioner on the market. Why settle for anything but a Power Plant?
