    I am certainly no engineering expert, but all of the above did and are doing what they are supposed to do.
    With respect, no they don't. Powerplay is an advertised feature, has been promised for years, and it doesn't work for anybody. Your good-self included.

    PS Audio P20 vs Denali 6000/S V2?

    Sorry. I guess I didnít explain my thinking correctly. I bought a PS Audio regenerator to quiet my electrical noise. I plugged it in, and it did that. My system improved to my ears. Thatís all I was interested in. So, for me at least, it worked the way I wanted it to.

    Re: PS Audio P20 vs Denali 6000/S V2?

    I moved from a problem free PSAudio P10 to the Denali 6000/s V2.

    I had used the P10 in a variety of configurations. Entire system, front end only, amps only etc. I was using it only on my front end and during the winter (non-thunderstorm periods) had my amps plugged directly to their own 20 amp lines. This clearly sounded better.

    I purchased the Denali 6000/S V2 based on reviews and first connected it just to my amps. Hmmm, big improvement over having the amps connected to the P10 or directly into the wall. I then connected my entire system to the Denali with the help of a PS Audio Dectet. Huge improvement as mentioned before in dynamics and weight. My system became more relaxed and my P10 sits on the floor doing nothing.

    It's a massive improvement. I upgraded from the p10 to the Denali V2

    Re: PS Audio P20 vs Denali 6000/S V2?

    I installed my new Denali today. Can't say I hear any difference at all. Whereas yesterday I changed from Belden BAV XLR to Iconoclast 4x4 Gen2 TPC interconnect and the improvement is easily noticeable. I put those Iconoclast very close to my Crystal Cable I/C but at a fraction of the cost.

    I'm wondering if the quality of the power supplies in the electronics might have a big influence on any performance gains in using a Denali. My Halcro power amps probably don't care too much about the quality of the power going into them. Same applies for my Esoteric gear. If the pedigree of your starting point is lower might bring about the bigger gains with Denali.

    Give it a week or so. I didnít think much of it at first either.

    Re: PS Audio P20 vs Denali 6000/S V2?

    I remember hearing an obvious improvement when I added a P10 to feed my Devialet 240.

    Now the difference is a lot less obvious since upgrade to a 250 Pro CI and now 1000 Pro CI.

    They improved significantly the power section and I understand that current peaks are delivered by internally stored current so that the impact of power delivery appears to be reduced.

    In my book either you perceive a difference when you add a component or pretty much never. I have managed to convince myself a few times that it did improve after a few weeks, but subsequent tests revealed it was most probably wishful thinking. At least in my case.

    Cheers,
    Bernard
