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.

Description:

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.

Technology:

DTCD® DESIGNED (Dynamic Transient Current Delivery)

The Typhon QR was designed using the DTCD®  measurement analyzer.  DTCD® Analysis is a technique that measures instantaneous current through low impedance electrical conductors and contacts.  Shunyata Research uses it to optimize the design, specification and construction of parts and materials to ensure maximum current delivery performance.

QR/BB™ and NIC™ NOISE REDUCTION

The NIC™ (Noise Isolation Chamber) is a patented technology that reduces high frequency power line noise.  NICs™ use a non-reactive ferroelectric substance that actually absorbs high frequency noise. This allows HYDRA power distributors to reduce noise without any of the negatives associated with conventional power conditioner designs.  QR/BB™ is a patent pending technology that improves system dynamics especially when used with high powered amplifiers.

‌HYDRAULIC ELECTROMAGNETIC BREAKER

Common power conditioners use fuses or thermal breakers for over-current protection.  Those devices may cause voltage drops, increased contact impedance, thermal noise, excessive heat generation and current limiting effects when heavily loaded.  The Typhon uses a more advanced solution called a hydraulic electromagnetic breaker that can operate right up to the maximum current level without the limitations of fuses or thermal breakers.

ArNi® Conductors

Shunyata Research has developed its own proprietary ArNi®conductors.  They are made using the highest grade certified copper available (OFE C10100 / Certified ASTM F68).  ArNi®conductors are arrayed in a “hollow tube” VTX™ geometry.  Then, they are treated with the Kinetic Phase Inversion Processor (KPIP™) for a period of 2 days.

SSF-50 SHUNYATA FOOTER

The SSF-50 is standard equipment on the Typhon QR. Power distributors react very similar to amplifiers in relationship to floor-borne vibration. Shunyata Research tested dozens of the commonly available feet and determined that none of them were adequate for use with Shunyata Research products. After researching multiple forms of energy dissipation methods, the SSF-50 was developed, providing the performance characteristics of an expensive after market footers without the exorbitant cost.

VIBRATION MANAGEMENT

The Typhon chassis is made with heavy gauge steel and aluminum.  Shunyata Research has developed exclusive vibration reduction strategies and vibration reduction panels that measurably reduce resonant vibration levels.

Applications:

THE HYDRA REFERENCE STACK

The HYDRA REFERENCE STACK is a modular three component system that represents our highest performing power distribution system.  It consists of the TRITON v3, TYPHON QR and DPC-6 v3.  The Triton provides power distribution for 8 components while the Typhon extends the noise reduction capabilities of the TRITON.  The HYDRA DPC-6 is desirable if the system has computer or music server components.  The DPC-6 isolates and “firewalls” the computer devices preventing them from adversely affecting the audio components. The Triton may be used as a standalone power distributor.  The Typhon and DPC-6 are optional and may be added later to extend the capabilities of the power system.
