HYDRA TYPHON QR

Advancing State-of-the-art

HYDRA TYPHON QR represents a dramatic advance in the engineering, design and performance of the most ingeniously conceived product of its kind, the original HYDRA TYPHON. Designer Caelin Gabriel has added significant technology and performance advances to the already massive, patented technology within the original HYDRA TYPHON.


Shunyata Research’s HYDRA TRITON power distributor was originally conceived as a reference-caliber power distributor. As the project evolved, the Triton’s size and cost escalated beyond practical limits. The file-cabinet sized prototype was temporarily shelved while options were considered to reduce the unit’s massive size and weight. Designer Caelin Gabriel created a solution by dividing the original design into two separate units. The first chassis, dubbed Triton, served as the power distributor with eight outlets. The second chassis, dubbed Typhon, was identical in size and served as a dedicated pre-filter for the Triton. This design completed Gabriel’s original vision for the ultimate audio performance power distributor.

Since its release in 2011, the Hydra Triton and Typhon became the most critically and professionally endorsed product of its kind, receiving awards and accolades from recording professionals and the world’s top magazines. Pushing the boundaries of performance through design innovation and patented science has always separated Shunyata Research product designs from others in their category.

HYDRA TYPHON QR represents an advancement in technology and performance of the original Hydra Typhon. Technologies derived from the HYDRA DENALI Series have transformed medical-imaging performance in the high-tech field of electrophysiology. Gabriel has applied these and the knowledge gained in his 25 years of research and development into the new Triton v3 and Typhon QR products. The Hydra Typhon QR includes the QR/BB technology pioneered in the Hydra Denali. However, the Typhon NICs and QR/BBs are nine times the volume of those used in the Denali.

Subjective impressions of the Typhon’s performance include enhanced spatial and low-level detail information. Many reviewers report that it recovers obscured recorded information, unintelligible words, blurred instrumental passages or ambient information that may be buried in the noise floor. Although the Triton has been critically acknowledged for reproducing state-of-the-art scale and micro-dynamic contrasts in sound, the Typhon further solidifies instruments, voices and images as vivid three dimensional characters within the recording. Some report that it expands the depth of field, perceived volume of recorded space and spatial information to the extent that it perfectly recreates the venue in which the performance was recorded.

DENALI SERIES D6000/T

DENALI Series

Designed to perfect the listening experience, the NEW DENALI Series power conditioners incorporate the absolute latest technologies from Shunyata Research.


Features

High Current Capability
The DENALI Series is designed for unlimited power delivery capability -- including high powered amplifiers. DENALI’s use an advanced, non-limiting 20-Amp electromagnetic breaker and are wired with massive 8 gauge internal wiring. Even the medical grade filtered outlets have a full 15-Amp continuous rating (the competition has a feeble 5-Amp rating).

Vibration Control
Mechanical vibration can be very destructive to system performance. The DENALI was designed from its inception to include advanced forms of vibration control. The all aluminum chassis is treated with vibration dampening panels. Each outlet has a vibration absorbing system to isolate it from the chassis and from vibration conducted through the AC cables. The CCI filters, NICs, and QR/BB are all potted with a vibration dampening compound.

Integrated Isolation Platform
The DENALI 6000/T and DENALI 2000/T tower models feature an integrated isolation base platform. The base is a made from CNC machined aluminum plates and includes massive, vibration dampened 50mm stainless steel footers.

Venom MPC-12

The VENOM MPC-12 is power distributor that is ideal for computer or music server based systems. Media based music systems use several digital or processing components associated with the computer (server). They are often made with commodity power supplies that put out significant amounts of power line noise. The MPC-12 was designed specifically to segregate or “firewall” the computer and digital related components -- preventing them from polluting the performance of your high-end analog components.

The MPC-12 is Shunyata’s most complete, multi-function, high-current power distributor. Essentially, the MPC-12 contains two completely separate power conditioners starting from the power inlet. The MPC-12 uses Shunyata’s finest Filter arrays within the analog section to reduce noise and enhance performance while still allowing for maximum current-delivery to even the most power hungry amplifiers.

The MPC-12 also features on-board surge, spike and over-current protection with a built-in status L.E.D. indicator.

Venom MPC-12C
12位电脑影音数码电源插座

TThe VENOM MPC-12 "C" is designed specifically for computer-audio, video and music-server based systems. Computer-media based music systems use several digital or processing components associated with computers (server). These devices are often made with commodity power supplies that put out significant amounts of power line noise. The MPC-12C was designed specifically to segregate or “firewall” the computer or video related components -- preventing them from polluting the performance of your high-end analog components.

The MPC-12 "C" is Shunyata Research’s most finely tuned power distributor in terms of its system specific design and function. Essentially, the MPC-12 contains two separate power conditioners starting from the power inlet. In section one, The MPC-12 "C" uses Shunyata’s finest CCI™ (Component-to-Component Interference) filter arrays to reduce noise and enhance performance while still allowing for maximum current-delivery to even the most power hungry amplifiers.

The other side of the MPC-12 "C", employs a custom-manufactured hand-wound air coil which literally fire-walls intense computer or video generated noise from affecting the components plugged into the second bank of six high-current/Analog outlets.

For those with the audio-systems that combine one or two digital components such as a CD player or Transport and DAC, the MPC-12 "A" model makes the most sense. For those with computer audio or video centric systems, the MPC-12 "C" is the best choice.

The MPC-12 "A" and "C" models feature on-board surge, spike and over-current protection with a built-in status L.E.D. indicator.

Venom MPC-12A
12位摸拟电源插座

The MPC-12A is similar in function to our traditional power distributors in that it is intended for normal audio and video systems that are not specifically computer based audio systems.

The MPC-12A has two independent zones of 6 outlets each, for a total of 12 outlets. This allows for the normal segregation of analog and digital components or between amplifiers and source components. The "A" designation stands for audio although it can also be used in all forms of audio/video systems. The two isolated zones will be labeled "A/V Zone 1" and "A/V Zone 2”.

At the core of the MPC-12A are Shunyata’s latest generation of CCI™ (Component-to-Component Interference) filters. These powerful multi-frequency noise-filters provide exceptional isolation for electronics without interfering with DTCD™ (Dynamic Transient Current Delivery) or electronics power supply function. The MPC-12 "A" has none of the drawbacks commonly associated with traditional forms “power conditioning” yet provides all of the protection and noise isolation that benefit electronics systems of all types.

Complementing the superior noise isolation in the MPC-12 "A" are dual 12 gauge OFE 101 copper conductors. This massive 9 gauge aggregate conductor set insures optimum DTCD™ performance for any and all high-current draw systems. Surge and spike protection are included in the form of Shunyata Research'’s Surge module, which has had a virtually zero failure rate since its inception. Putting these elements together in a 12 outlet, form-follows-function package makes the MPC-12 "A" an incredible value. For those looking at the next big step-up from Shunyata Research’s critically heralded PS-8 power distributor, the MPC-12 "A" delivers on that promise.

The MPC-12 “A” and “C” models also feature on-board surge, spike and over-current protection with a built-in status L.E.D. indicator.
