Shunyata Research

Shunyata’s Hydra AV power conditioner uses the same technologies found in the company’s Reference series Triton (reviewed by Michael Fremer in January 2012), but is intended for floor-mounted applications without sacrificing performance. Shown here is a prototype; final production should be complete in about one month and the price should be around $3000 to $4000.

The most affordable of Shunyata’s Reference cables, the 11-gauge Viper ($595) power cord uses Shunyata connectors, patent-pending ZiTron “electric field compensation circuit,” and VTX (Virtual Tube Conductor) copper conductors.
