Demanding systems require remarkable power. The DirectStream P20 Power Plant is our finest expression of the art of delivering protected, pure, regulated, distortion-free AC power.

With peak power levels of 3600 watts, no equipment can tax the mighty P20. Finally, your most coveted components have the opportunity to unleash their full potential, no longer hindered by dynamic drops in AC caused by the unavoidable resistance of the miles of wiring between you and the power station. DirectStream P20 regulates both long-term fluctuations and peak dynamic without deviation, ensuring a solid foundation from which to build a state-of-the-art system. Its low output impedance and unhindered AC delivery are equivalent to less than 50 feet of 12 gauge wire connected directly to your city power source without the connecting miles of wire, the many transformers, and the multiple neighbors weakening and contaminating your power. The most demanding music systems require nothing less than the P20.

Description

The DirectStream Power Plant 20 is our most powerful AC regenerator ever with 2000 watts of pure regenerated power, and the first to accept both 20 amp and 15 amp power cables. The massive P20 is our finest expression of the art of pure power delivery, providing more than enough power for an entire system. Regardless of incoming power quality the P20 outputs clean, protected, low impedance, regulated power you can count on for the most demanding systems in the world.

Don’t starve your music. A P20 gives you improved dynamics, far better bass and a much bigger, open soundstage. Take one home and try it today.

This product qualifies for our risk free in-home trial in the continental United States when purchased directly from PS Audio. And, trade in and save. Let us repurchase your old equipment at its full and original retail price. We’ll give it a good home and make sure you have the best power in the world. Just click the green Trade Up and Save button above these words to take advantage.

Pure power. Engineered without compromise.
When it comes to regenerated AC power we wrote the book. With two decades of engineering and a patented architecture in hand we built the biggest and best Power Plant ever. The P20 converts your home’s variable, compromised AC power into pure DC, then back again into safe, protected, regulated, perfect AC. The P20 will improve system performance like nothing else.

 

Reimagined DSD engine. Our cleanest source of power yet.
DirectStream Power ushers in a new world of purity with a clean, analog-like DSD generator. A Power Plant regenerator ‘s precise output is tied to its internal sine wave generator, not some coal-fired monstrosity feeding miles of noisy powerlines. The P20’s FPGA based DSD engine delivers the cleanest, lowest noise sine waves of any regenerator in the world.

 

Twice the size. Twice the power. Half the impedance.
System performance is improved by lowering the AC impedance, ensuring dynamic AC regulation, and providing instant, unlimited reserves of clean power of up to 70 amp peaks. The P20 does it all, with twice the output amplifier devices, twice the power supply capacity of our P10. Its available 20 amp input circuitry and unprecedentedly low output impedance make the P20 the most powerful regenerator ever.

 

100 pounds of pure muscle. Sheathed in solid metal.
With twice the number of output devices and double the power supply storage of any previous Power Plant, DirectStream P20 is the new benchmark for power products. Regardless of the quality of AC coming into P20, your equipment is guaranteed clean, safe power, with significantly lower distortion than ever before. Safe, regulated to within 1/10th of a volt, P20 provides unquestionable purity for systems of all sizes.

 

Upgraded internal architecture. Nothing spared in execution.
Rethinking decades of engineering has resulted in greater phase accuracy, transient response, increased error correction, improved regulation and 3X our lowest output impedance ever. P20 brings you closer to your utility’s power source than ever before, eliminating all noise and artifacts of the miles of wire and connecting transformers in the way. Think of P20 as better than your direct connection to the power’s source because it fills in what’s missing.

 

Not just another conditioner. Rebuilding AC from scratch.
Power conditioners are passive collections of capacitors, resistors, transformers, and coils of wire which lack the ability to add missing energy back onto the power line. Power Plants use active components, like those found in large and powerful audio amplifiers, to store and release energy for peak demands (up to 70 amps), rebuild the AC signal and produce clean, clear, distortion-free, regulated AC for your equipment. When performance matters, why compromise?

Why buy from us?

Rapallo is an independently owned New Zealand company and with more than 15 years experience, we offer you both technical expertise and superior service.

Rapallo is fully authorized to sell products by all of the manufacturers listed on our website and in our store. In most cases we are more than a reseller, we are a direct dealer who also receives training and where possible we personally test products we sell.

 

Authorized dealers like us offer peace of mind. Rapallo

  • meets manufacturer’s standards, from sales to service, in order to receive authorized status.
  • often receives training directly from manufacturer representatives and shares that expertise with you.
  • provides  support for all the products they sell.
  • ensures that manufacturer warranties will be honoured.
  • buys directly from big brand manufacturers and guarantee you buy NZ new, (no grey imports or parallel imports).

The Internet is an incredibly convenient information source and a wonderful way to find savings on the products you want. Protect yourself online by buying from authorized dealers, with genuine feedback and reputations.

 

A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you’ve ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, “Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?”

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don’t fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don’t show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
  • There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself!

 

Think you have a better price from someone in NZ (authorised dealer)? Call us, we’ll see what we can do.

 

Concerned About Fraud?
The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating…

 

So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it’s genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
