T+A PS 3000 HV
The Power Supply
The PS 3000 HV is a supplementary mains unit which was developed specifically for the A 3000 HV power amplifier and the PA 3100 HV integrated amplifier. Both deliver more than 500 Watts of power into 4 Ohms, and at such a high level of sound quality and performance that simply increasing the output power – and with it the voltage – produces no significant improvement in sound. Our research and development work in high-performance amplifiers – including the M10 and S10 – and the development of the HV design philosophy which flowed from this work, have shown clearly and unambiguously that the stability of the voltage and current supplied by a mains unit is of major and even crucial importance to the sound quality of an power amplifiers. From this we have drawn the only rational conclusion, and developed a supplementary external power supply.
