PS Audio introduces the PowerCenter Dectet
It was a bit quiet around the Power Centers since the Duet and Quintet are removed from production but Paul McGowan (PS Audio) reveals in his newsletter of June 2012 that there will be a worthy successor arrives.
The name and that name is Dectet indicates the ten terminals that this socket will - so naming the same way as the Quintet Power Center Power Center Duet five and has two terminals.
This "entry" Power product is designed and built in Boulder / USA - and it does not matter which part of the world you live, because every version gets so 10 connections!
The Dectet is an affordable alternative to the AC Power Plants and cleans, protects your equipment and thus improves the performance of your audio and video setup.
The difference between the past generations of Power Centers lies, according to Paul McGowan in performance. The Dectet with a clean slate for a new design for the entire Power Center concept thoroughly revised.
The first step in the re-design is to increase the size of the internal magnetism which is used for filtering the AC.
In this generation PS Audio goes back to the major population centers and thicker wiring in more windings which they so effectively used in the older Ultimate Outlet and UPC products.
Large cores and thicker wiring add more robustness and a larger picture to the sound of the connected equipment.
The second task was the building itself. In the older design was placed on parallel sockets to power supply to each outlet. That has worked well for a number of areas, but had a weakness: isolation between connected equipment.
Listen Evaluations have shown that it conducted individual star cabling really a better way and so each zone has its own wiring to the source.
Of course all features like advanced netfiltering, protection against under-and overvoltage and lightning from the Quintet, etc. integrated into the new series Dectet.
The new Dectet whose design is tailored to the design of the Perfect Wave line and looks like more like a component than a power strip.
The new Dectet has a target price of $ 499 and shipping begins in a few weeks. The Dectet seems on paper a worthy successor to the older power centers and an affordable alternative to more expensive power plants. More information coming soon on the PS Audio website
