PS Audio - Dectet - Power Centre

$1,195.00

Thank you for visiting The Audio Tailor.

We’re Stuart, Gabby, Nathan and Vaughan. It’s a pleasure to have you here!

The first question we get from customers usually starts with, “What’s the difference between...”

When you’re shopping for new speakers, a turntable, or even thinking of putting together that home theatre of your teenage dreams - you’ll likely be faced with stacks of comparisons.

Why would I buy the Bluesound Pulse 2i when the Flex 2i is half the price?

Is PS Audio the best?

Should I wait for a sale? Or get this now? What will I be missing out on when the new model comes out next year?

Endless questions. Lots of FOMO. Loads of hmm-ing and ha-ing.

And there SHOULD be.

Because you don’t go to a Hi-Fi store and drop $2000, $3000, or $15000 on something you're not 100%, positively, secure-in-your heart sure of.

It’s a lot of hard-earned money on the line.

Imagine doing hours of your own research. Reading up the suppliers’ websites, taking notes from Hi Fi blogs, categorizing the differing opinions as you trawl r/audiophile. You know what you’re getting. You’ve narrowed the online stores down to the final five. You’ve checked and re-checked that you’re getting the best deal. You’re sure you’re not getting ripped off by shipping.

You hit the “Checkout” button. Momentary relief!

That is...

Until your speakers haven’t arrived by the estimated delivery date and you have yet to hear a peep about its progress.

Until your new turntable arrives with a crack in the dust cover.

Until your long-awaited amp set-up fails to deliver the kind of sound you had in mind. Now you’re not even sure if you got the right one anymore, or how to troubleshoot it.

What could possibly be worse?

What about: No after-sales service. No phone number to call. And no one responding to your tickets.

Not to mention the hundreds of man hours you’ve already lost on reading layman opinions from the likes of Graham H. from Melbourne and Sarah D. from Perth; dutifully scrolling through pages and pages of reviews. Torturing yourself by looking for all the ones with less than 3 stars... when you could have been sitting back and diving into a whole new world of immersive sound and deliciously satisfying body vibrations.

Would it make sense to go to audio specialists that know brands, specs, and installation like the back of their hands?

Should you spend less time on weighing up pros and cons and more time enjoying good music?

Want to get the absolute best home theatre for your budget and surroundings without the weight of 100++ brand offerings bogging you down?

We like to think so!

And that’s why we’re here. Two things to know about us:

Thing 1: We were voted Australia’s 2021 Hi Fi Retailer of the Year (Yay! And THANK YOU!)

Thing 2: This is purely because we are sound specialists and audioheads - NOT salesmen.

We got into this business because we genuinely love audio and because we realized there was a lot of faceless dropshipping in the HiFi industry - and not enough expertise out there. People who keep coming back to us do so because they’re getting attention to detail and individualized solutions that they can’t find elsewhere.

Our clients don’t need to worry about budget, brand name, or size.

All they need to worry about, is talking to us.

Because, when you come to us, you’re in for a conversation.

We want to know the picture in your head.

That final portrait of you back from the flea market with Pearl Jam’s Ten, eager to place it gently upon a turntable you haven’t quite decided on yet.

A summer barbeque in your garden with the boys. Having a yarn around a beer-filled cooler while appreciating the crisp, clear, quality of sound streaming through the open doors of your listening space.

The kids having mates over - quiet for once - immersed in a good movie, lights out, in the comfort of the home theatre that is your pride and joy. “I wish we had one of these at our place!”

Once we know precisely what your ultimate scenario looks like, we’ll want to know what you’re working with.

What kind of budget have you set aside?

What’s the existing set-up look like?

How big is the listening room you have in mind?

How much ambient light is coming in?

Are you running drywall or wood panelling? Carpet or hardwood?

What about room resonance and reflection?

No idea what we’re going on about? No worries. We intend to talk you through all that. Our aim is that you get the absolute best sound system for your home, at a price point you’re happy with, and an aesthetic you can’t help but want to show off.

To get to this end goal, an unhealthy interest in all things audio simply isn’t enough. That’s why we spend countless hours behind the scenes sourcing products from only the most reliable brands and trustworthy suppliers - regardless of their branding and marketing.

We don’t rely on them to tell us what’s good about their equipment. We’ve developed our own proactive testing process to judge what’s what. So you get hands-on knowledge every single time. Coupled with our tight networks and stable supply chain meticulously refined over the years, we strive to ensure that the experience you get at The Audio Tailor is personal, seamless, and painless.

Personal, because it’s uniquely you in musicality, design, and taste. Your options are hand picked by us from amongst some of the world’s biggest, best, and most dependable brands.

Seamless, because we’re only small. You get one of us. Not one of dozens of salesmen milling about the place, working for commission and pushing the most expensive products.

Painless, because we don’t recommend anything until we’re clear about your needs. We follow up with you to make sure everything’s arrived in one piece. For us, the transaction isn’t over until your equipment is safely installed and fully satisfying.

TL;DR

Some of the big things we feel are missing in the HiFi world are:

  • The need for expertise before, during, and after the sale
  • A vast wealth of comparative knowledge, and
  • A commitment to end-to-end service.

At The Audio Tailor, we hope we’ve made it clear that service doesn’t shut off when a problem pops up. It’s an opportunity to tighten the ship we run, bolster our 5-star reputation, and most importantly - make someone’s day.

Hi! We see you’ve actually made it to the end of this page. Love it!

We’d like to end this by giving a shout out to all the enthusiasts and audiophiles we’ve been fortunate enough to work with over the years. It has been a privilege to share our desire, passion, and journey for the purest sound and finest entertainment solutions for your homes and businesses.

Thank you to all our customers - past, present, and future - for helping us chase after something above the ordinary.

To make your audio dreams come true - call, email, or hop on down to our Brisbane store.

We’re looking forward to meeting you!

Product Description

The Dectet Power Centre is built to power and fully protect your entire system with improved dynamics, increased harmonic integrity and an open spacious soundstage that can be breathtaking.

  • 10 receptacles
  • Individually hand wired outlets
  • Common and differential mode filtering

  • Surge protection

PS Audio's very best entry level power centre

The Dectet is an active three zone, ten outlet power centre producing cleaned unrestricted AC power for an entire high-end audio or video system.

Filtration is handled through large-core high permeability magnetic devices wound with heavy gauge OFC windings. The Dectet offers both common mode and differential mode filtering you can both measure and hear the benefits for yourself. Protection is handled by an internal measurement system that automatically determines over/under voltage conditions as well as full surge and spike protection.

Each of the Power Port outlets on the Dectet are hand wired with a star wiring system that provides similar benefits to having individual dedicated lines feeding each piece in your high-end audio system.

This is true high-end, despite its entry level pricing. Use the Dectet for you entire system to clean, protect and improve.

Bring new life into your music

If you’ve been searching for a way to bring new life, body and dynamics into your music system at a price you can afford, then you’ve come to the right place. The Dectet Power Centre can handle the power delivery for everything in your system and once you’ve heard what this beauty can do, there’s no going back. Compared to just about any power conditioner you’ve tried and, certainly, plugging your gear straight into the wall socket, the Dectet will give you improved dynamics, increased harmonic integrity and an open spacious soundstage that can be breathtaking.

The Dectet Power Centre is built for your entire system. Ten Power Port outlets, each individually hand wired to the power input, are available on the Dectet regardless of what country or voltage system your system runs on. That’s right, now for the first time with a PS Power Centre, every voltage and country’s receptacle requirements are covered with a complete set of ten outlets.

The Dectet handles your equipment with three isolated zones, one for high current equipment, another for analog and a third for digital and video equipment. Regardless of what type of equipment you are powering and protecting the Dectet can handle the entire load for you.

IsoZones bring clarity

PS Audio’s proprietary IsoZone technology brings independence and improved clarity between equipment when isolated through one of the Dectet’s three zones.

The High Current IsoZone of the Dectet provides two outlets designed specifically to handle even the biggest power amplifiers, sub woofers, receivers or even large screen televisions. What’s important in a high current zone is to provide unrestricted power with low common mode noise and that’s exactly what you get with the High Current Zone on the Dectet. You can plug in a pair of monoblock power amplifiers, a big or small stereo amp or anything requiring high power and not worry at all about restricting the energy needs of your amps.

Works for an entire system

The Dectet is specifically designed as our entry level system power centre providing clean, safe and unrestricted AC power to the entire system. If you cannot manage the added costs of a Power Plant regenerator then the next best choice is the Dectet Power Centre to get it right.

IsoZones for sources

For source equipment the Dectet provides two isolated and filtered zones that provide both common mode as well as differential mode filtering. The high sensitivity to power line issues that most source equipment is prone to can be handled through one of these two source IsoZones. Because there are two identical double filtration IsoZones designed for sources we recommend you place all of your digital equipment into one and your analog products into the other for best performance.

Isolation helps soundstage imaging by reducing the interaction between components so what you hear is far better separation of instruments and voices with the Dectet. And because the Dectet’s filtration is handled by our large core heavy gauge magnetic filtration devices, there’s never any impact, dynamics or musical energy lost when isolating equipment via the IsoZones.

Over under voltage protection

All ten receptacles of the PS Audio Dectet are continually monitored by the device’s internal voltage measurement system. Should the incoming voltage exceed 20% or fall 25% below your country’s nominal voltage the Dectet will automatically shut down, fully protecting everything connected to it. As soon as the power levels on your power line return to acceptable levels, the power on the Dectet is restored, thus protecting everything connected from potential damage.

Take control of your system and reap the rewards

Certainly the finest power products in the world are thePS Audio Power PlantAC regenerators that take the power from your home’s wall receptacle, convert it to DC and then back again to perfect, low distortion power to drive your equipment. But that technology is expensive and not affordable for every system. Yet power remains one of the most critical factors in getting all your system has to offer.

The alternatives to Power Plants that really work without compromising dynamics, harmonics and the life of your music are either very expensive or few and far between. The PS Audio Dectet Power Centre is certainly the best alternative to a Power Plant for any size system.

Bring the life back into your system and the music back into your home with perfected and protected power through the Dectet Power centre.
