Linear powersupplies (LPS) are important infrastructure of moden day audio systems, particularly CAS systems.

I have auditioned most of the top LPS in the market during past several years and finally took the plunge and purchased an Ediscreation Firebird LPS in July last year. I write a review on WBF too :

There are 3 dc outputs on Firebird and should be sufficient for an usual CAS system. Why buying an additional Plixir Statement LPS?
Let me show you some "openbox" photos before I tell you the reasons.

The box/packing are unassuming :

So is the external look because only black colour is available. The chassis is sturdy :

At the back here are two dc outputs of the same voltage and a grounding-post :

The orginal footers are from bFly Audio of Germany, made of multiple layers of diff materials to reduce vibration :

The included dc cables are the proprietary Elementa from Plixir :

It was being given a Vertere Red powercord in my audio system :

Here are the specs on Plixir website and I won't repeat :

Sonically the Statement LPS surprised me by :
1. Its extreme darkness/quietness. It is not "dead silence" but there is so much air and harmonics of instruments/voices in the soundstage.

2. The extreme agility and frequency extensions. Beware : there is zero harshness but only the liveliness of real music playing.

Personally I think that these two aspects of Statement LPS are the strongest among all the top LPS that I have auditioned.

No wonder James, the boss/designer of Plixir in the press release claimed that the Statement was to fight with the best bigboss LPS in the market!
:p

Why buy a Statement despite that I have a Firebird?
It's because I have ordered Extreme Switch+network card combo for my Extreme Server.
I went to listen to the demo setup in Volent Audio HK and compared diff LPSs driving the Extreme Switch.
IMHO Plixir Statement is THE best LPS for Extreme Switch! They are the best partners.

To be fair, I think that the absolute performance of Firebird and Statement are on par, but they possess diff sonic characters.
They are a bit like tube amps & SS amps respectively.
The Statement is agile, quiet whereas Firebird is mellower and has a wider soundstage.

I will keep both and mix & match them with the various components in my audio system to achieve the best mix/configuration.

In my eyes/ears, they are the best LPS in the market and I'm confident that WBF members buying either of them will have no regret.

So, their pricing lists "$1,850 without GST" and "$1,998 with GST". Anybody know what GST is? I tried their search function on the site and it came up empty for "GST", oddly enough.

Please note that Plixir is a Singaporean company.
The prices listed on Plixir website are in Singaporean dollar SGD.
Currently 1 SGD is around 0.75 USD.

GST is for local sale in Singapore so overseas purchase is free of this tax.

However I notice that there isn't a N Am or European dealer yet.
WBF members may buy directly from Plixir or ask one the the Asian dealers such as Volent HK in Hong Kong to see if they entertain overseas purchase or not.

I tried buying from Singapore, but there are distributors here in NZ.

Decided to purchase the Plixir Elite BDC Dual and also an Elite BDC single a month ago.
At the time the Statement LPS wasn't finalised.
I should have waited.

Still, the Elite BDC is really good...

A couple of questions.

- I have 3 RedLines power cords but my plugs are different from yours. The red cable looks the same as mines but the plugs not. Have you changed them?

- Have you compared this Plixir with the upgraded Farads (inlets and fuses) ? If so what power cord did you use for the Farad. Reason for asking is that I heard a big uplift using a Redline with my Farads compared to the stock cord and even compared the Farads own power cord.

Please read my review, particularly #6 & #7 about upgrading the plugs on the Vertere Redline powercord :

Concerning the Farad (and also the Ferrum Hypsos & Paul Hynes), IMHO I preferred the Ediscreation Firebird LPS during my comparison performed last year and so I bought a Firebird then.

I have already given my views on Statement vs Firebird on #1.

Of course it may be my personal taste only and YMMV.

Thanks,
i had already read “the plugs and the Redline” but didn’t made the connection. I think I will give some new Furutech plugs a try.

This is my Vertere Red powercord with the two plugs replaced :

Thank you for making us discover this new model from Plixir. Probably a silly question but I guess that due to the design of the power supply you cannot request to have 2 different volages (eg 19V for a NUC and 12V for a switch)?

Dear Tonari,

I am James Soh, the maker of PLixiR power products. It is best that I answer this question. Both the output of the Statement BDC has the same voltage, so no, you cannot have 2 different voltage output from the Statement BDC.

Cheers.

James Soh.
 
Two of my Extreme Switch user friends have got the Plixir Statement LPS.
They are very happy with the pairing!
:D

I’ve bought this to use with my taiko switch, with another one on standby for the taiko router.

It has a deep black background that makes the music sound very real and lifelike. It also matches very well with the low noise taiko switch!

That sounds encouraging! Have you tried the switch with any other LPS's prior as a point of comparison, or are your comments about this Plixir vs. the Taiko supplied SMPS?
