Product Description

The Triton is an entirely passive device that also provides its client component with noise suppression and surge protection. It sends electricity from a single wall outlet to eight sockets using a buss system that Shunyata claims is capable of supporting the current demand of virtually any audio system.
The Triton targets the reduction of EMI in two ways. Unlike power conditioners that use a series of large capacitors to reduce high-frequency noise (an approach that increases reactance and limits current flow), the Triton uses what Shunyata describes as a collection of narrow-band microfilters organized into a multiphase differential array (MPDA) that Gabriel likens more to a parametric equalizer than a simple high-frequency control. He discovered the frequencies to target through years of research using DTCD and spectral analysis into the types and bandwidths of noise generated by linear and switched power supplies. The filters were computer modeled to target specific noise bands at different points across the frequency spectrum.
The Typhon is also a wholly passive device containing two NICs that triple the volume of ZrCa2000 compound found in the Triton. The Typhon operates as a parallel filter across the Triton’s hot-to-neutral power line and, as such, it has zero impact on the Triton’s current delivery. The units are identical in size and differentiated visually from the front only by their respective monikers on an otherwise identical Hydra nameplate. The Typhon weighs in at 43 pounds, five more than the Triton, and together the two units tip the scales around 81 pounds. On its rear, the Triton has its power sockets, a special Typhon port and an on-off switch. The Typhon’s sole interface is a single male A20 port on its backside for connecting to the Triton.
The Triton can get you started and the Typhon can be added later. The benefits the pair brings to bear serve the music well and do so without any negative effects. Highly recommended—especially for those with relatively high- resolution systems.
