The P3 Power Plant is PS Audio's most affordable full function Power Plant,
but don't expect any compromises in power protection. With three
separate regenerated zones and a fourth, high current filtered zone,
the P3 can handle any size system you can throw at it. From the biggest
power amplifiers to the smallest pieces of source equipment, this combination will
work magic on your system's performance.
"I heard a greater degree of transparency from bottom to top.
The bass became more taut and articulate, the midrange had more of a
see-through immediacy combined with musical sweetness and the treble was
more distinct and less hazy It seemed that selecting the Multiwave
function made the system's bass even more solid and improved the
holography of the soundstage by increasing its apparent depth. The
Clincher: What really drove home the P3's impact in my system was the
improved fine detailing and sometimes shocking dynamic contrasts coming
through on my turntable system. So once again I am living by my own
advice and buying the PS Audio P3 Power Plant for use in my large-room

Even though the best equipment has power supply regulation built in,
your utility company isn’t helping you. You need good, stable, reliable
AC, but unfortunately the power coming into your home is distorted,
dirty, unregulated and deteriorating the performance of your system. Now
you don’t have to worry about that anymore. PS Audio's Power Plant P3
AC regenerator takes the power you're given from the utility, converts
it to DC, and then with patented PS Audio technology, regenerates and
amplifies new sine-wave-perfect, high current AC power. New high
current, ultra low distortion AC power created by Power Plant technology
delivers stunning performance from your audio and video components. You can then plug bigger amps or subwoofers into the P3's two
high-current filtered and protected zone outlets for up to 1750 watts of clean power.
The PS Audio PerfectWave AC-3 is the most affordable power cable in the new series of PS Audio Power Cables. The PerfectWave AC-3 is a 12 gauge cable, with OFC pure copper, multiple shields, multiple gauge geometry, and custom machined connectors. Its absolutely the best value in a high-end power cable PS Audio has ever designed! The PerfectWave AC-3 sets a new standard!
Perfect AC power is a critical requirement for high-performance
audio/video systems. Delivering that power to your equipment, without
any loss, is the job of the AC power cable. The low noise, high-speed
design of the AC-3 is based on 5 patents and years of listening and engineering.
The PerfectWave series brings a new level of refined beauty, power and
spacious performance to high-end, high-performance systems. It helps
connected equipment enjoy a breathtaking openness, with quick transients
combined with a warmth and richness that you have never before
experienced! All PS Audio power cables are covered by Music Direct's famous 100% Satisfaction Guarantee!
The P3 Power Plant provides the kind of power conditioning that made PS Audio
legendary, but with a much friendlier price tag - and a few
improvements. Not just a more affordable take on classic Power Plants,
the P3 features several upgrades from previous models. It can
handle voltage fluctuations up to 170 volts, features twice the energy
storage of the lauded Power Plant Premier, and an output impedance 100
times lower than previous models. You've invested so much time and money
in your system - make sure you're getting the best protection available
for all of your components.
The third largest and most affordable of PS Audio's personal power generating stations, the P3 produces
pure, protected AC capable of powering any size high-end system. This
state-of-the-art power center offers fully regenerated power for all
sources and smaller power amplifiers along with a high current filtered
output that can drive even the largest power amplifiers made.
Output impedance of a power source is the key indicator of how well
connected equipment perform and may be the single most important factor
in the way that equipment sounds. The lower the output impedance of the
Power Plant, the better the depth, separation of instruments and
spatial qualities of the musical soundstage are. It is this critical
aspect of the power output that makes all the difference in the world.
It is why even the highest-end power conditioners cannot compete with a
Power Plant; they raise output impedance as opposed to lowering it.
With the PerfectWave Power Plant P3, 100 times reduction in output impedance ushers in new level of performance. In fact, the output impedance of the P3 is now 100 times lower than any
Power Plant ever built. What’s that mean to you? Dramatically
improved dynamics, openness and transparency and the feeling that you’re
as close to the music as you’ve ever been before.
The P3's user interface is significantly expanded as well. In keeping with the rest of the Perfect Wave series products, PS Audio
provides a touch screen which gives you control of all functions as
well as critical evaluation of your incoming and outgoing voltage supply
with greater depth and accuracy than before, using a front panel
oscilloscope to really see how your AC is behaving.
The P3 will handle even wider voltage fluctuations than any Power Plant yet, up to 170 volts,
enough to deal with even the most unstable supply your power source
throws at you - your A/V system will still perform its best. Regulated,
powerful, rebuilt AC from any quality of power you feed it, the P3 will
transform your system from good to amazing. Compared to the previous
state-of-the-art Power Plant Premier, the P3 boasts twice the magnetics, twice the energy storage and four times the number of output devices, which provides a stunning reduction in output impedance.
PS Audio's new on-board network technology provides
unprecedented control and monitoring of all your connected devices.
Automatically reboot routers, modems, and network devices when Internet
dropouts occur. Schedule devices to power on and off automatically
optimizing power consumption in your system. Receive emails
automatically when power occurrences occur, as the PerfectWave Premier P3
is automatically reacting on its own. You can access the P3's control
panel through any web-enabled device, including a Blackberry or iPhone.
From there, any connected equipment can be rebooted, turned on or off,
or have its status checked. It's that simple.
In the back of the P3 there are two mini jacks that can be
assigned as either an IR input or output or a DC trigger transmitter or
receiver. For the IR capabilities, the P3 can be assigned up to
15 separate IR commands for any zone and these IR broadcasts can be
triggered by any number of assignable events. This helps P3 maintain
complete control over not only the AC power to your system, but by
directly controlling that same equipment through a remote control.
If you have equipment that needs a DC trigger to turn it on or off
remotely, you can assign one of the mini jacks to be either the sending
or receiving unit for these commands and remotely turn on/off equipment
or have that equipment remotely turn on/off the P3.
