I have several of them, including the P20..... all the things your Italian forum members noted have been observed ( heard).....
The P20 preserves all the original dynamics (and to some degree enhances them), and allows the music to flow in a very natural, relaxed way, with a very silent background....
Cheers......

I have the older P10 and am very happy with it. It helps with my mains supply which I always thought was dirty. I have tried my Kassandra with and without the P10 and in my situation, it is better with it. More dynamics, better bass definition and generally more organic.

I also run my music server off the P10 and LPS supplies, and the Genus Integrated. Running amps of the P10 can be better or worse, depending on the current draw and how dirty your mains is. On current draw, you need IMO to be at 50% max on the P10 or dynamics will begin to suffer. I am at 43%.

Ciao,
now too hot,
will try early september

I don't know if try P 15 or P 20

As i think is better use my CH M1 mono directly to the wall,and i will use for TT,pre and phono,i don't know if try P15 or P 20.
Sound seems to be same,and both have enough power for all.
I will see

Thank you, Gian60. Look forward to reading about your impressions of P20 or P15. I also would use for sources only.

On Goebel power cord...do you have LaCorde Statement? Do you think you would plan to use this with P20?

I havent Lacorde statement but sure i will buy,and also 2 my friends tried and will buy

P 15 or P20 will avoid also the 3 my power distributor,so i will connect M1to the wall and all to one of this,all with Lacorde statement

I think will be very good

Hi, I have tried both the P15 and P20. A listening test with Torus AVR is highly recommended!

Torus as far as I understand it is not a power regenerator, more an isolator? An advanced low pass filter.

The PS Audio units take AC back to RAW DC then clean it and regenerate a clean AC sine wave.

I haven't compared the 2 products. It is also situation dependent i.e. how bad your mains is, and the load you place on the unit doing the work.

Thank you both Vienna and Astrostar59...I currently use the Burmester 948 Reference only for sources...Digital and preamp so low powered. I cannot imagine running the Gryphon through this.

Vienna - how did the Torus and PS P20 compare?

Gianni, I had a PS 20 in my system and also used one at Axpona this year. It is a good product however I recently got the Nordost power purifier and the QB8, and Qcore and IMO it was much better. I have good consistent power in my room so that was not an issue of me.

Thanks,
i know this product but never tried,i will check well.
And put Nordost Q4X between the wall and P20 could be give more pure and regenerated power.

Hope David don't read this

I do like the QX4 between the wall and the Burmester, as well as wall straight to Burmester and then to QX4 to CJ Preamp.

I know David doesn't like any tweaks,so is like he tells me don't waste time and money
Caro Gian,

Of course it's possible to improve your sound by upgrading your mains electrical installation but do you really believe a little box regenerating in your room can compete with this :)?
