The Typhon T2
Typhon T2 represents a dramatic five-year refinement of the original, critically, and commercially acclaimed Typhon and Typhon QR models. At almost half the size and price of the Typhon QR, the Typhon T2 includes two high-current outlets that allow for in-line connection to even the most current-hungry amplifiers. The patented QRBB and NIC technologies within the T2 have been radically improved to deliver an unprecedented performance upgrade when connected in series with a Shunyata Research Denali 6000S/v2 model or virtually any other Shunyata Research power distributor.
The Typhon T2 model can be used as a stand-alone reference power distributor for any type of amplifier no matter how demanding, or other remote reference-grade source electronics. The Typhon T2 is housed in the same chassis footprint as the Denali 6000S/v2, making it easy to stack and connect from the wall, then via its umbilical to the power distributor. The T2 can also be used with the original Denali 6000s/v1 or any Shunyata Research power distributor below the Everest 8000. No matter the application or combination, the Typhon T2 will deliver a jaw-dropping component-level performance upgrade to any system, no matter how small or large the system may be.
The revelatory improvements that are readily apparent when adding a Typhon T2 to any system include an immediate and dramatic increase in dynamic expression; as if you added wattage to amplifiers or headroom and scale to your system’s dynamic capability.
The T2 delivers on the promise of enhanced timing, improved imaging, and a revelatory increase in the three-dimensional presence of instruments and voice in space. These are not subtle enhancements but are instead easy to hear, immediate gains similar to making a massive component upgrade.
Perhaps the most notable improvement is that along with all these improvements comes an unforced, organic ease and noise-less background which permeates the space in and around your favorite recordings.
Recommended uses for the Typhon T2--
The QR/BB™ module possesses the ability to act as an electric charge reservoir, meaning it stores and releases energy in a manner that improves a component’s access to instantaneous current.
Dynamics are actually improved reducing any sense of dynamic strain often heard from amplifiers that are connected with lesser power cables.
The sonic result is a lifelike presentation of timing and dynamic contrasts in sound that cannot be replicated by ANY other means. In layman’s terms, it acts like a super-charger for amplifiers, pre-amps, DACs and CD players.
DYNAMIC TRANSIENT CURRENT DELIVERY
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. Each part, conductor, noise circuit and material allows for maximum throughput of instantaneous current.
Listeners will experience earth-shaking low-frequency performance from even the highest-current amplifiers as well as dynamic contrasts unheard of outside of a live event. More than any other design parameter, Shunyata Research’s skill in eliminating resistance and maximizing peak-current delivery is unmatched.
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 reduces noise without any of the negatives associated with power filter coils, capacitors and transformers.
