Guys, I'd like to try and get a general consensus of opinion. I'm in the process of altering my current setup. My valve setup runs through a PS Audio P10 regenerator to very good effect but I've run out of sockets into the P10. So, my question is, do you think a clean power supply into a Paradise phonostage will improve it's performance? If the answer is no then I'll simply use the good old wall sockets, else I'll look into a solution to get a clean power supply into the Paradise. Thanks in advance
Based on my experience with a Linn phonostage my response would have to be yes. I used to run mine from an Isotek Sigmas, but now it runs from a Lab12 Gordion. The change to the Gordion didn't make much difference to the phonostage, but it did to a DAC on the same rack.
Based on my experience with every single component I've ever used, my answer would be yes, power supplies are critical to performance and so is the incoming power. How on earth have you used up all the P10 outputs?!
The phono stage will be you most critical component as any noise there gets massively amplified. I'd have thought that if only one component could be fed pure power it's this...I realise you have more than one output on the P10...I'm just saying this is likely the most critical component.
