Probably not only stable but this is going to be the strongest yet best sounding amp one phase mains powered!
I will have some for testing soon, let me report my findings then.

Can it do subs? :-)
I love the XE6000 on my top boxes, but on sub duty...

Some saying with deeper understanding in electronics that this is the biggest thing since Class-D.

100A? At 240V that equates to a 25mm2 cable (per conductor).
Amp size and weight might be going down, but the cables we carry is going up!!!

Correction:
1. 100A mains for 110Vac
2.   63A mains for 230Vac..

These are the maximum line current values as far as I informed to this date.
It has fancy mains current limiter too, so theoretically *could run on ANY fuse*
but probably penalty of continuous power.

Who does remember what was the max. line current measured of Powersoft K20 on strong 230Vac? Around 30A?
Am I right?

32A average draw is the maximum for the K20. Peak draw can be substantially higher.

This.


I inquired with PKN about the 3-Phase line and never got any response to repeated emails. There doesn't seem to be any availability in North America.

Any shots of a REAL unit not a render?

Any gigs?

Peter Papp - I know you read this. I'd love to direct A-B your amp against the K20 and can do it at Dimensions and Outlook. Let me know if you want a truly unbiased oppotunity, I will gladly say which is the better unit on power etc. Not known for pulling my punches.
