> Hydra Typhon Power distributor 240V (uitsluitend te gebruiken met Hydra Triton)


Shunyata Research's Hydra Triton power distributor was originally conceived as a reference caliber power distributor that bore no compromise in design scale or performance. 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 one-box size and projected price. Designer Caelin Gabriel created a solution by splitting the original Triton design into two units. The first chassis would house a stand-alone eight outlet Reference power distributor. The second chassis of equal size and greater weight, would plug into the base unit and function in parallel. This would complete Gabriel's original vision for an ultimate performance power distributor.

Shortly after its 2011 release, the Hydra Triton became the most critically and professionally endorsed product of its kind, receiving awards and accolades from recording professionals and top editors at US and international magazines. The Hydra Triton's overwhelming success paved the way for the introduction of it's "second-half", the Hydra Typhon. Pushing the boundaries of performance through design innovation and patented science has always separated Shunyata Research product designs from others in their category. The Hydra Triton/Typhon combination represent the working definition of those ideals.

Within the Typhon's Triton-size case are two massive Noise Isolation Chambers (NIC's). These cylindrical chambers take up the entire space within the Typhon's chassis and account for the majority of the Typhon's 43 pound weight. Each NIC contains an enormous volume of Shunyata's patented ZrCa-2000 compound, which absorbs and dissipates high-frequency noise. Shunyata's hollow-core VTX wiring, culled from ultra-pure CDA-101 copper, runs through the chambers and connects to the IEC at the back of the Typhon. In essence, the Typhon is a purpose-built slave unit for the Hydra Triton.

When connected to the Triton, the Hydra Typhon triples the volume of the Noise Isolation Chambers within the Triton. The Typhon/Triton system reveals spatial and low-level detail information that no other product or combination of products can equal. This is not a subtle effect but one that uncovers recorded information otherwise obscured or buried in the noise floor. Unintelligible words, blurred instrumental passages or missing ambient information become clear as if for the first time. 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. Hydra Typhon dramatically expands the perceived volume of recorded space within a recording. Lateral and depth of field information emerge surrounded by spatial information that perfectly recreates the venue in which the recording was created.

The Typhon requires a dedicated umbilical power cord designed specifically to connect it to the Triton Power Distribution Unit. A good quality Typhon umbilical will be offered at a nominal cost. However, for optimal performance we highly recommend choosing an optional high-performance umbilical cord. One that matches the power cord that was selected to connect the Triton to the wall outlet. As is the case with all electronic components, the Typhon responds dramatically to improved power-connection science such as the technology used in Shunyata's Reference power cords. Your dealer can offer several options that can be supplied with the Typhon at additional cost.

For best performance, the preferred connection method will be to plug the Typhon power cord into one of the Triton's unused outlets. If all outlets are in use, the Typhon may optionally be connected to the dedicated port on the back of the Triton.

How To Evaluate a Typhon
Due to the fact that the Typhon works in parallel and not in-series with the Triton there are a few specifics that should be followed when evaluating a Typhon's performance when connected to a Triton.

Settling Time
Since the Typhon does not carry the current load (the Triton does) -- it does not require burn-in per se but it does require a settling period. Simply plug the Typhon into the Triton and it will reach its full potential in about 5 days. We do not recommend critically evaluating the Typhon before this settling period is complete.

Making the connection
Do not plug in and unplug the Typhon in rapid succession for short listening or viewing samples. This will not accurately convey the performance effects of the Typhon-Triton system. The Typhon's effect on performance becomes obvious once it is disconnected from the Triton after being connected for several hours or days, rather than upon it's initial connection. This is a function of the gradually increasing effect of the Typhon's NIC's once they are connected in parallel to the Triton.

MPDA (Multi-Phase Differential Array)
Three years of development using DTCD Analysis and spectrum analysis has produced Shunyata Research's exclusive Multi-Phase Differential Array. The MPDA reduces power line noise without the negative effects of simple capacitors and the current limiting of coils and transformers.

NIC (Noise Isolation Chambers)
Noise Isolation Chambers reduce power line noise in the megahertz to gigahertz range. The NICs are patent pending and utilize Shunyata Research's ZrCa-2000 ferroelectric noise reduction compound.

ZPP-DS (Zero-Point Power Distribution System)
ZPP-DS significantly reduces the number of wires and connection points within the power distribution system. The A.C. outlet contacts and main electrical buss system are unified into a single electrical point of contact, while eliminating the multiple runs of wiring needed in conventional distribution systems. ZPP-DS also eliminates differential metal-to-metal diode-like distortion effects.

VTX Geometry Conductors
Shunyata Research has developed what might be the world's perfect power conductor geometry. VTX wire geometry simulates a hollow conductor, which minimizes inherent inductive reactance and skin effect, improving DTCD instantaneous current propagation.

CDA-101 Copper
CDA 101 copper is the highest purity copper on the metals market. It comes with papers that prove its authenticity. This is the only type of copper that Shunyata Research uses in its electrical products, from signal cables to power cords and power conditioners.
