PS Audio - DirectStream Power Plant P15 - Power Regenerator
The DirectStream Power Plant 15 is the next generation of AC power regeneration. It features an all new analog power amplifier and FPGA based sine wave generator based on pure, clean, analog DSD. The P15 has 5 separate regenerated zones, buss bar delivery system, and 1500 watts of pure regenerated power. From medium to large power amplifiers to the smallest pieces of source equipment, the P15 will work magic on your system’s performance. 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 P15 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 power conditioner on the market.

The DirectStream P15 is the second largest high-end personal power generating station in the world, next to the P20. It is the successor of the venerable P10 Power Plant relied upon by thousands around the world. The P15 is all new, based on the P10, but rebuilt from the ground up. It features an ultra-low impedance analog power amplifier, pure DSD FPGA based sinewave generator, larger power supply, and the lowest distortion ever available in a Power Plant. The P15 is capable of powering any size system and bringing forth all that’s possible from your system ensuring you get the same great performance every time you listen.
The P15 includes 5 separate zones and 1500 watts of pure regenerated power, delivered to each receptacle through 1/4″ thick copper buss bars. From medium to large power amplifiers to the smallest pieces of source equipment, the P15 will work magic on your system’s performance. Only the very best high-end system around the world rely on the P15 Power Plant for protection, purity, and performance.
With your system powered directly from the output of the P15, dynamics and openness are breathtaking. New voices, new harmonics and a renewed sense of musicality are yours the moment the P15 starts up. This is one of the most important pieces of audio equipment you can own, building a firm and reliable foundation for your system that will serve you for years to come.
How It Works
The DirectStream P15 Power Plant takes your incoming AC power and converts it to DC, similar to what comes out of a battery, and then with patented PS Audio technology regenerates and produces 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.
Since the introduction of Power Plant regenerator technology in 1997, many reviewers as well as many thousands of customers around the world have experienced for themselves just how critical and unique a Power Plant is; the term accessory doesn’t begin to describe its value. One of our customers, a long-time reviewer for one of the established audio journals, remarked that “Its the first component anyone serious about high-quality audio should get.”
