  • PS Audio DirectStream DAC ($1540 extra for Bridge II streamer)

    There are only a few left of these units at a special price. All are black units. These are now a finished model.

    We're huge fans of the digital magic that the folks over at PS Audio weave. From the first moment we heard the Perfect Wave, we knew there was some black magic under the bonnet. Now with the DirectStream, PS Audio have taken it to another level, producing one of the most fluent music communicators we've heard in quite some time.

  • PS Audio Dectet

    Clean power is important if you're chasing high end sound (and if you're here then of course you are!). Power filters give the incoming mains signal a thorough scrub before feeding it into your system. The Dectet filters your AC supply, then routes it out to ten points, separated into 3 different zones. There is a high current zone for your power amps and subs, then two separate 'isozones' to keep your analog and digital signals separate. Basically, stick all those switch mode supplies on one zone so they don't contaminate the other.

  • PS Audio Aspen FR30 Loudspeaker, some glorious anticipation

    Coming soon to Carlton Audio Visual at around the $50k mark. We will have a demo pair here from May 17th until the Hi Fi show in June.

    Hi Fi News Verdict:  "The waiting is over, and the aspen FR30 speakers are nothing short of remarkable, setting new standards of focus, openness, weight and control at this price and well above. The build and finish are as immaculate as the sound, the unusual styling works remarkably well in the room, and the listening experience is a revelation. If you're in the market for speakers in this sector, listen to them - they're a bargain."

  • PS Audio BHK Signature Preamplifier

    This made an immediate and frankly stunning effect when I added it to the system pictured. Before we had been running the PS Audio Transport, DAC, and power amplifier together as a minimalist high powered high current set of kit readily able to drive the highly transparent Monitor Audio Platinum II loudspeakers. Adding the BHK Signature Preamp bought the system to life. The music leapt holographically into the room and was just a consuming experience. Whereas before it had been good, but somehow unmoving, now one was just swept up and carried off by the music. Brilliant. Learn More
  • PS Audio PowerPlant P20, 3600 watt 10 Amp mains regenerator

    They call it the inky blackness hidden in the music ...

    The P20 is the ultimate cleanser for your mains power.

    Demanding systems require remarkable power. The DirectStream P20 Power Plant is the 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.

  • PS Audio Stellar Power Plant 3, P3 affordable power plant

    This is the new power plant/regenerator from PS audio and it comes in at an affordable price point, at least much more so than its $17K big brother, the P20. It functions on the same principle of the P20, turning what is dirty voltage off the wall into a perfect AC sine wave.

    Much of the power off your wall suffers from low voltage, sagging power, distorted waveforms and just pure noise and the quality of this power off the wall has gotten worse over the last ten years and continues to degrade. That's why many Hi-Fi enthusiasts are finding that sorting out ones power needs is a crucial investment in a good system. And the regenerators are the best at sorting out these power issues. That's because they start from scratch to produce a new sine wave instead of just trying to mask the problems (as is the case with passive filter products).

    The P3 is already generating alot of hype and reviewers are loving it. Really because it's the only product out there that's a regenorator in this price bracket.

  • PS Audio DirectStream PowerPlant 12

    The P12 Powerplant. The best way to do power regeneration. Clean up your HiFi!

    We have many customers who have good existing HiFi systems and especially recently with Lockdowns and spending more time at home listening to their systems, they ask 'what's my next step? I want something better. But do I really have to spend big on a new amp? Or is it more worthwhile getting new speakers?' Yes, these are questions facing the priveleged with cash to spend in these uncertain times.

    The obvious answer to these dilemnas in our minds is a regenorator....not just your average power conditioner but a unit that will take the power off the wall and turn it into a perfect 230V sine wave minus the background hum of our modern urban environments.

    For those who LOVE a bit of hands on tech and physics, this unit will even show you what it's improving with its full colour touch display on the front panel. You can measure the distortion that's coming off the wall using a built in THD analyser and oscilloscope and see the improvements that it's making.

    And for those who are simply concerned about the music sounding better, sit back and relax. You here more articulation. The beginning and ending of bowed notes in a string orchestra are discernible and there in all their glory. The die out of piano notes seem to disolve into an inky blackness and dynamics are bigger.

    Please note the Australian specifications for this unit are different to the American ones as the unit is designed to take Australian Voltage off the wall. For the Australian market, the P12 has 4 outputs.

  • PS Audio PowerPlant 15

    This is where power get serious. 9 power outlets delivering perfect AC sine wave to your precious HiFI. 

    Sonically this can be a bigger difference than getting a new amplifier. We've had many HiFi enthusiasts blown away by the detail and the largeness of the sound that this delivers. 

    And so many cool features to play with as well. You can measure the distortion and the improvements that the unit makes, you can set timed switch on and switch off sequences for your gear, measure output voltages, switch on/off certain zones. The geek in us all does a little happy dance with all the options.

    But the real selling point is the sound. You don't realise how much of the power supply you hear through your speakers until it's not there anymore.

  • PS Audio PerfectWave SACD Transport

    This is the recently released version of PS Audio's CD Transport. And what sets this unit apart from anything that PS Audio has done before and also anything that's been done before by any other HiFi company, is their galvanically isolated output stage. That means that the data is being transfered from the input stage to the output stage via a type of very focused short wave radio frequencies. Any vestiges of interference that inevitably occur when these stages are hardwired, are completely eliminated.

    Input and output stages have their very own board and power supply to keep them completely separated as well. FPGAs (Field-Programable Gate Array; if you'd like to learn more about these very handy devices see Paul McGowan's video here) is utilised to ensure clocking and data buffering are spot on. 

    The best way to use this unit and unleash its full potential is to use the I2S output or the HDMI out put to a DAC (like the PS Audio DirectStream) that can handle it. In this respect you can hear a complete Raw DSD file...and that truly is another experience. A DSD file is what makes an SACD an SACD. Instead of sampling at a determined fast rate (bit rate) the sine curve of the musical file, a DSD file samples the whole sine curve. These raw files are bigger and have to be compresesd to even push it out of a transport. But not with this unit and the I2S...full blown raw DSD files streaming into your speakers. Heaven.

    Of course you can still use this unit without the I2S and it's still devastatingly good. A pair of BNC connectors will double a normal DSD output to make it DSD128 and this connection is particularly scintillating with a Chord Dave...

  • PS Audio Stellar Phono Preamplifier

    We are Vinyl lovers at Carlton Audio Visual. The people who work here love Vinyl and without exception have a record player at home...most have multiple! Our customers have also held the torch for vinyl through the long dark years of the nineties and early 2000s when most had forgotten about the joys of a Turntable, we had a dedicated and passionate team of clients and staff who loved their LPs. Since then Turntables have become trendy and people have rediscovered why they were loved for so long.

    And when customers are at a point in their journey where the lifelong admiration and obsession with vinyl and HiFi has taken hold, we recommend the Stellar Phono Stage. It will last a lifetime of cartridge upgrades and swaps. It will extract the most out of a $8499 cartridge (Van den Hul Crimson Stradivarius MC is a sensational pairing with this unit) as it will with a $500 Moving Magnet cartridge.

    You'll hear control, detail and presence; There's a spatial awareness in the sound and transparency that reveals itself when you plug this into any system. And it performs well above its pay grade. We really believe to better this you'll have to pay $17K for some Audio Research gear and hell...even then, I'd say some people will still prefer this phono stage for it's clarity in the mid range.

    The only thing that we find annoying about it...it requires a remote control to operate. You'll need that in the very first instance to turn its mute off in order to get any sound. And then of course all its plethora of settings that give it such versatility for all cartridges are adjusted on the remote. So don't...like us...loose the remote! *

    Also, you need to be patient with this machine and run it in. It really is night and day the difference that makes. We even have some Blue Horizon RIAA filters to use as burn in tools on new units so you don't have to put hours on your cartridge burning in the phono stage. We can do that in store for free, for you.
