**Conditions and Limitations to Sale
a PS Audio Dealer
What if you could power your audio or home theater system with absolutely pure, undistorted, well-regulated, and low source impedance 60 Hz AC current instead of the unregulated, high source impedance, distorted and noisy AC power that currently (no pun intended) comes out of your wall outlets? Do you think that might improve your system's performance?
You'd better believe it would!
Line conditioners have attempted, with varying degrees of success, to provide cleaner AC for your system by filtering out radio frequency noise and other forms of contamination, but PS Audio has a better way to do this with their three Power Plant models, the P3, P5, and P10.
These products are not classic line conditioners but rather are power regenerators. They take the poor quality AC that comes out of your wall outlet and immediately convert it to DC. Since DC is, by definition, zero Hz, it cannot contain any distortion or high frequency contamination, and all such spurious contamination is completely gone. The pure DC is then used by the amplification circuitry contained within the Power Plant to produce, right in your listening room, the highest possible quality AC, 60 Hz, high-current power needed to run your system. This freshly-generated, pure power is made available to your system via the power outlets on the back of the unit.
The P10 ($4995) is PS Audio's most advanced model and provides up to 1500 watts of regenerated power to 10 outlets in 5 isolated zones. With your system powered directly from the pure output of the P10, dynamics and openness are breathtaking. New voices, new harmonics and a renewed sense of musicality are yours the moment the P10 starts up.
The P5 ($3495), PS Audio's most popular model, provides up to 1250 watts of regenerated power into 4 isolated zones and 8 outlets. Its performance is very similar to the P10, and it is more than adequate for any but the largest systems.
Both models have a built-in oscilloscope, distortion analyzer, and full color touch screen on the front panel to give you the ultimate in control. You can view both the incoming and outgoing AC wave forms to see how much distortion is being reduced. You can control various aspects of each zone such as how and when a zone powers up, and you can even control the power plant via the Internet and a web browser.
Their newest and most affordable model is the P3 ($2495) which provides up to 750 watts of regenerated power into three zones of 6 outlets. In addition, there is a fourth pair of filtered (but not regenerated) outlets for very large power amplifiers. The P3 can power most small and medium size systems using only the 6 regenerated outlets but also allows the user to employ very large power amplifiers or subwoofers. These can be plugged into the filtered outlets without overloading the regeneration circuitry. While the P3 does not feature a touch screen it does have the exact same feature set as the P5 and P10 using its built in web access portal.
Here's what one of our best customers, Jack Foley, said after installing his new P5:
While waxing enthusiastic about the Power Plants, we shouldn't forget to mention that PS Audio also produces several other high-end and very respected audio components. These include the GCPH phono preamplifier ($1000), the PWT Perfect Wave CD Transport ($3995), and two USB Digital-to-Analog Converters (USB DACs), the Digital Link III ($800) and the PWD II Perfect Wave DAC ($3995). You can read more about these excellent products on the PS Audio website.
Radio Reception Problems
For years many of our customers have complained that they just can't get good FM reception where they live. This problem recently became very severe for listeners to WQXR, the classical New York radio station that downgraded its power to a paltry 600 watts! Many listeners can no longer receive WQXR without tons of static and distortion. Many other listeners don't like the stations available in their area. What can be done about these problems?
Enter Rotel which just introduced two new fabulous Internet radio products, the RDG-1520 Internet radio and FM tuner and the RCX-1500 Internet radio and FM receiver with built-in CD player and amplifier. Both of these products are equipped to receive any station that broadcasts its signal over the Internet. There are thousands of classical, jazz, rock, and whatever genre stations you could possibly want. You just hook either model up to a hard-wired ethernet connection or use the wireless WiFi capability, and you'll be listening to radio stations from all over the world before you know it. And yes, WQXR comes in loud and clear!
The RDG-1520 is a tuner only, so it needs to be hooked up to a new or existing stereo system. The RCX-1500 is a complete receiver with built-in CD player, so all it needs is a pair of speakers. You can also plug in your iPod through the front-panel USB connection and hook up your computer to play music files from, for example, Windows Media Player.
We're now listening to radio stations from all over the U. S. as well as France, the Netherlands, Great Britain, and many other locations. There are thousands of stations available. Please come down to the store for a demo of these new Internet radio products to see just how versatile and impressive they are.

a PrimaLuna Partner/Dealer
One of the hardest and yet most important tasks we undertake at Audio Nexus is our continual search for affordably-priced products that offer true, audiophile performance. Beyond that, of course, we want these products to look good and be reliable. Those of you who follow the audiophile press have probably noticed that one such brand, PrimaLuna, has been garnering effusive praise and a plethora of astonishing reviews all over the world for the last few years. There have also been numerous awards such as "Product of the Year for 2006" from The Absolute Sound for the ProLogue Six mono-block power amplifiers and "Class B Recommended Component" from Stereophile for the ProLogue One integrated amplifier, the ProLogue 3 preamplifier, and the ProLogue 7 mono-block amplifiers.
Recently, PrimaLuna has decided to add to its distribution by forming partnerships with a very limited number of U. S. dealers so that customers will have the opportunity to audition and purchase these magnificent products from a local dealer. It is our great pleasure to announce that, after over a year of negotiation, we have been named the exclusive dealer for PrimaLuna sales in New Jersey!
The driving force behind PrimaLuna, a Dutch company, is Herman van den Dungen. He has created a line of preamplifiers, integrated amplifiers, and power amplifiers that sound terrific, are amazingly reliable, and are built to a quality standard that is rarely matched by even some of the most expensive components out there. To top all of this, the PrimaLuna products are surpassingly attractive. They have neat, clean lines, superb fit and finish, and are decked out with a high gloss finish consisting of 5 coats of hand-polished lacquer. They are very pretty pieces! There are four integrated amplifiers (ProLogue One, ProLogue Two, DiaLogue One, DiaLogue Two), a preamplifier (ProLogue Three), four stereo power amplifiers (ProLogue Four, ProLogue Five, DiaLogue Four, DiaLogue Five), four sets of mono-block power amplifiers (ProLogue Six, ProLogue Seven, DiaLogue Six, DiaLogue Seven), and a tube CD player (ProLogue Eight). In addition, any of the integrated amplifiers or the preamplifier can be fitted with a built-in phono preamplifier. Please visit our Products page for pricing information.
Here are some of the seminal features incorporated into the PrimaLuna line:
Here's what one of our customers wrote to us two days after picking up his brand new PrimaLuna ProLogue Two:
I just want to let you know that the Prima Luna Prologue 2 has far exceeded my expectations. Not just mine but also my wife's. It is as if filters and coloration have been removed and the full 'bandwidth' and nuance of the music are now flowing out of the speakers in an effortless sort of way. There are voices behind voices, harmonies underneath harmonies, sub tones and whispers that just were not part of our listening experience before. There is an uncanny sense of dimension, clarity and balance. All of this is amazing since it is experienced with my existing low-budget DVD player and record player, and the amp is not yet broken in. I never thought that a good quality amp would offer such an immediate and profound improvement. A friend of mine who has a good system came for a listen and was blown away - he actually called me yesterday to tell me that he is now depressed when he listens to his system. Any, way, I thought that I would share this with you and thank you for making this wonderful component available.--L. S., Teaneck, NJ
