Speakercable you use on Palladiums

Recommended Posts

I don't use a UPS, but I do use a PS Audio power regenerator on all my front end equipment.  You would have to be mad to plug an amplifier into any current limiting device like a UPS. Mine goes straight into the wall.

That's just a double-conversion pure-sinewave UPS without the battery and costs like 4 times as much. :)

If I owned a pair of top of the line Palladiums I'd begin by shopping decent (but not Lowes zip cord) cables the likes of bluejeanscables.com or perhaps the offerings from Emotiva.
BOOM!

 

i AM a palladium owner and i use three of these for my fronts:

i think the 3m originally retailed for 120$. what cool is i picked mine up at emofest for 5$ a piece. cause they were demo pieces. even bought me a few spare sets and have gave them away for icing on the cake with some of my speaker sales.

So this produces pure sine-wave power?  Interesting -- I have been using PS Audio sine wave generators for several years now, and continue to appreciate how much better electric motor-driven equipment, like TTs, CD transports and tape decks, sound with them.  While I'm all set for now, I'll have to look this up.

 

My PSA P-300 burned out a few years ago, and could not be repaired.  So I replaced it with a more current model P3, which appears to use much less power, and generate much less heat, at idle.

 

Like you say, not real cheap.

Power cable:

How can replacing the last 3 feet of cable make any difference when there is several feet of other cable running back to the breaker? Mind you this other cable is thrown about and probably has a boatload of noise on it.

Speaker wire:

Not going to matter under 50 ft. Use appropriate size, and move on.

Amplifiers:

This is one I feel there are differences in. I would qualify this by saying I have seen measureable differences along with the audible ones I have heard. If two amplifiers measured the same, not sure you could hear a difference.

It comes down to your pocket, your ears. If you hear a difference, and are happy, then it is good.

Click on "how it works":

"The PerfectWave P5 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 high efficiency analog electronics, regenerates and produces new sine-wave-perfect, regulated high current AC power."

Same exact thing that a double conversion pure sinewave UPS does.

Thanks.  I read it, but I still don't really understand the "double" in double conversion.  However, if these output pure sine-wave power the way PS Audio does, for the relatively small amounts of money seen on Amazon.com, I would certainly suggest that interested parties on the forum give it a try.  Again, the biggest benefits in my experience have been in TT's, cassette and RTR tape decks, and other things with motors.  PS Audio charges a lot for their power plants if in fact they do the same thing!

 

I now wonder if TT motor controllers like VPI's and Basis's do about the same thing.
