Well, I know I won’t rest until I try one of the PS Audio Regenerators, but Synergistic Research Tesla Powercell 6 is now installed in the system (fast :) - I got it locally.
When the system was still warming up, I wanted to hear it for a bit and it sounded pretty good. Somewhat lean but with a lot of new detail, more detail than the Monster HTPS for sure, and definitely already cleaner sounding then without any conditioning. The Tesla powercells come with Active Synergistic Research cable so blends well the rest of my system. Perhaps that’s why it was cleaner (lower noise floor) right away.
I plugged the amp into the powercell also - so three components in separate zones (DAC, Pre, and Amp). I was interested and concerned how the bass response and soundstage would be when all reached equilibrium.
So, after about 1.5 hours of warm up, I am listening again...Excellent! Soundstage is huge and Bass is very good, yet controlled. I think it sounds better then plugging the AMP directly into the wall (which was a slight safety concern for me before).
Overall, I feel happy with, my decision to get the SR Tesla Powercell. The price was much cheaper then the regenerators, and so far, nothing is lacking sonically for me.
Thanks all again for your recommendation!
