Still, it's an elegant setup you have. I have an Elite DVL-91, and it still gets some work as I have about 160 LDs. I'd say rack it if you can, and play those LDs.

Yes, the amps are solid state. Since my room is used for HT and music I wanted big mono-blocks with lots o' wattage.
My Logans do get thirsty. If I ever did a dedicated 2-channel music room I'd love to use an all tube setup. But alas, that just isn't in the cards.

I may still yet dust off my LD player and find room in the rack for it. But I'm so spoiled with blu-rays I don't know If I can go back.

Well, I don't watch LD for anything I have on DVD. But some things are only LD, and I don't have a problem with watching them that way. Some of them didn't make it to DVD as far as I know. Anyway, have fun.

McIntosh monos. Very good.

Santa came early to ol' Wabo's house. He must have heard about the impending snow storm heading our way and wanted to deliver this brand new PS Audio Power Plant Premier (PPP) to me.

This thing is a beast, weighing more than some receivers! I can't wait to get this all hooked up... hopefully tonight!

Hello Waboman!

Congrats on the new PS Audio PPP!

But I have a question for you? In the infamous words of Peter Stormare of the hilarious Volkswagon GTI (Unpimp your auto) commercials,...

"What does this do?"



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfWSc...ture=related:D

Waboman, No doubt, you have a pimped out power center and I'm definitely not implying that it needs to be UNPIMPED!
When I saw the photo, the VW commercial came to mind because that PS Audio PPP is the shi-nizzle!

And your room is definitely ROCKIN'!

PS Audio, holdin' it down on the Power Center tip, y'alll!

Regards,

"Chance favors only the prepared mind. "Louis Pasteur"

Lol. I remember that commercial. Peter Stormare is great.

In a nutshell, the PPP generates new AC power for the entire system. It is like having a power generating station right in your own home. Quiet, clean and powerful, the winner of the TAS product of the year, the Premier is the single most effective means of improving your system performance and providing you with a crisp, clear A/V experience. It does this not by "conditioning" but by rebuilding the old AC power into new, pure, regulated AC. The Premier doesn't care what the quality of your incoming AC is; what comes out is perfect.

If anything I need to pimp my power! Because right now, it's very unpimped.

I have three dedicated 20 amp circuits I use for my HT. To be honest, and this is embarrassing but we're all friends here... I'm using cheap Monster Cable strips for all my power/surge protection. I knooowwww, what am I thinking? Outta sight, outta mind. With the exception of the power amps. I have them plugged directly into the wall. So as you can see, I need to pimp these unpimped Monster cable strips, fo-shizzle.

That is one sweet looking new addition you got there! I saw a video with Paul McGowan explaining what this puppy can do. It sure does look impressive. I'm looking forward to your thoughts on it once you have some time with it. It might be something I'd look into getting for my system.

Congrats!!!!

Thanks Seth. I actually want to get another PPP. Unfortunately, one will have to do for the time being. Perhaps next year.

It's quite a piece of gear. It shows the voltage coming in and then the voltage going out to the connected components. I have 122v coming in and 121v going out. I need tweak it to an even 120v. Which is pretty easy, just haven't had the time. Also, it shows the THD coming in and out. I have 3.8% coming in and only 0.6% going out. I have noticed a difference in the short amount of time I've had it. Notes a are crisper. When watching a blu-ray, sounds are much more pronounced. Sometimes making me jump. It's amazing what clean power can do to hungry amps and other HT components. I highly recommend this to anyone thinking about it.

P.S. Great video, btw!

This looks like something I will definitely be adding to my system in the not too distant future. Only 0.6% THD going out! Wow! That's amazing! Looks like you're gonna get some time to really enjoy it over the weekend.

Merry Christmas mi amigo!

Merry Christms to all. Happy New Year.

I saw the video for the PPP also, and would consider it if I had the money. But, I'm running all my stuff on two Tripplite units and have no reason to complain.

Thank you, everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Eve.

We spend the Eve with my wife's side. Trying to get the kids in bed after opening their gifts is like trying to herd cats! Damn near impossible. Our house is covered in wrapping paper... got to clean that up, because we're gonna do it all over again tomorrow morning (not too early I hope).

I've been getting into the show Fringe. Netflix delivered a couple BDs from the first season yesterday. I do believe it's time to make a Christmas cocktail and adjourn into the HT. Cheers, my friends.

I finally got around to dialing in exactly 120 volts output on the PPP. It's definitely time to rock!

It's nice to hear that you are enjoying the Triple "P"!

Now that you've un-pimped the Monster Cable Power Strips, your system is now "Definitely ROCKIN'!

The PS Audio PPP makes my Panamax M5400-PM look like a "Kmart-special" power strip!

If it does as advertised, it's a pretty powerful piece of equipment and a worthy investment for sure!
Congrats.

Hi ld. Thanks, my friend. I am enjoying the (pimped) triple P. I tell you though, your Panamax is a lot better than the un-pimped Monster Strips (not too mention several other brands of power protection out there) I've been using for years.

That darn upgraditus bug keeps biting! Someone needs to find a cure..fast!

Oh my goodness, Frank. My entire house is covered in wrapping paper. The toys they have nowadays are mind-blowing. We were robbed growing up. What did your kids end up getting?

My wife and kids are Bon Jovi fans. They just happen to be touring here in April. So for Christmas I got us 4 tix to see them.

I got winter Crocs. You know, for us people who have snow on the ground.

Hello Jeff!

Welcome back! Are you finished galavanting over in Bluray.com?!
Pretty fun site isn't it? They showed you a lot of love! That's until I brought up the PS Audio PPP! My Bad

They just don't understand. I know if I had the resources, I would be all over the Triple P!

Anyway, it was a joy watching post after post submitted to your thread. and I'm sure many more will come.

The Vikings are about to pull it out! It's tied!
