Dectet AC Power Conditioner
The Dectet is an active three zone, ten outlet power center that produces clean, unrestricted AC power for an entire high-end audio or video system. It is designed to power and fully protect your entire system with improved dynamics, increased harmonic integrity, and an open, spacious soundstage that can be breathtaking. Filtration is handled through large core high permeability magnetic devices wound with heavy gauge OFC providing both common mode and differential mode filtering you can both measure and hear. Protection is through both microprocessor controlled over/under voltage surge guard and MOV spike that will always make sure your equipment is fully protected.
PS Audio Dectet 10 Outlet Power Conditioner
If you’ve been searching for a way to bring new life, body and dynamics into your music system at a price you can afford, then you’ve come to the right place. The Dectet Power Center can handle the power delivery for everything in your system and once you’ve heard what this beauty can do, there’s no going back. Compared to just about any power conditioner you’ve tried and, certainly, plugging your gear straight into the wall socket, the Dectet will give you improved dynamics, increased harmonic integrity and an open spacious soundstage that can be breathtaking.
The Dectet Power Center is built for your entire system. Ten Power Port outlets, each individually hand wired to the power input, are available on the Dectet regardless of what country or voltage system your system runs on. That’s right, now for the first time with a PS Power Center, every voltage and country’s receptacle requirements are covered with a complete set of ten outlets.
The Dectet handles your equipment with three isolated zones, one for high current equipment, another for analog and a third for digital and video equipment. Regardless of what type of equipment you are powering and protecting the Dectet can handle the entire load for you.

IsoZones bring clarity
PS Audio’s proprietary IsoZone technology brings independence and improved clarity between equipment when isolated through one of the Dectet’s three zones.
The High Current IsoZone of the Dectet provides two outlets designed specifically to handle even the biggest power amplifiers, sub woofers, receivers or even large screen televisions. What’s important in a high current zone is to provide unrestricted power with low common mode noise and that’s exactly what you get with the High Current Zone on the Dectet. You can plug in a pair of monoblock power amplifiers, a big or small stereo amp or anything requiring high power and not worry at all about restricting the energy needs of your amps
IsoZones for sources
For source equipment the Dectet provides two isolated and filtered zones that provide both common mode as well as differential mode filtering. The high sensitivity to power line issues that most source equipment is prone to can be handled through one of these two source IsoZones. Because there are two identical double filtration IsoZones designed for sources we recommend you place all of your digital equipment into one and your analog products into the other for best performance.
Isolation helps soundstage imaging by reducing the interaction between components so what you hear is far better separation of instruments and voices with the Dectet. And because the Dectet’s filtration is handled by our large core heavy gauge magnetic filtration devices, there’s never anyimpact, dynamics or musical energy lost when isolating equipment via the IsoZones.
Over under voltage protection
All ten receptacles of the PS Audio Dectet are continually monitored by the device’s internal voltage measurement system. Should the incoming voltage exceed 20% or fall 25% belowyour country’s nominal voltage the Dectet will automatically shut down, fully protecting everything connected to it. As soon as the power levels on your power line return to acceptable levels, the power on the Dectet is restored, thus protecting everything connected from potential damage.
Take control of your system and reap the rewards
Certainly the finest power products in the world are the PS Audio Power Plant AC regenerators that take the power from your home’s wall receptacle, convert it to DC and then back again to perfect, low distortion power to drive your equipment. But that technology is expensive and not affordable for every system. Yet power remains one of the most critical factors in getting all your system has to offer.
The alternatives to Power Plants that really work without compromising dynamics, harmonics and the life of your music are either very expensive or few and far between. The PS Audio Dectet Power Center is certainly the best alternative to a Power Plant for any size system.
Bring the life back into your system and the music back into your home with perfected and protected power through the Dectet Power center.
Engineered in Boulder
Dectets are engineered and extensively listen tested in our Boulder Colorado facilities by engineers that care about music and what we ship out the door. There’s a great deal of pride and care that go into every Dectet built, despite the fact it is one of our lower cost products.
You can be sure when a Dectet Power Center leaves the PS Audio, that every care has been taken to ensure its proper performance. We hand test each and every one of them. What this means is simple: when you place it in your system, it’ll honor the music in every way.
