There is no question that PS Audio's Paul McGowan is the one man most responsible for making the idea of regenerated AC power popular with audiophiles. His physically giant yet not very efficient PS Audio P300 Power Plants were all the rage with audiophiles, as they truly improved the AC power, breathing new life into one's audio system in ways most audio enthusiasts didn't think was possible. The problem was that you couldn't put very high-draw power amplifiers on the old PS Audio units, because they really only could convert about half of the power coming out of the wall into real energy for your system. Today's systems, including the $2,195 (USD) PS Audio Power Plant Premier, are far more useful and efficient.

While dressed in a sexy silver case, there is a limited edition PS Audio Power Plant Premier that comes in black. The PS Audio PPP reportedly outputs 1500 watts of regenerated power and has programs that filter and clean the AC power signal quite nicely. There are a whopping 10 receptacles on the back on the system and, most importantly, the efficiency has been boosted by design changes made PS Audio's vice president of engineering, Bob Stadtherr. You get more of the power from the wall available to your rack, meaning you likely can run some level of power amplifiers via the PS Audio PPP system, depending on the draw of the amps.
