Interesting report. Do you plan to plug the Triton into the outlet directly?
yes, I just need to get to it. The triton is so large it didn't fit where the vray was, so i did this temporarily.
I didn't know what to expect but I was really surprised about the improvement, even with the chaining, so I will get to it eventually.
I *thought* I once read about chaining Hydra 8s, so that's why I tried this. I don't know enough about electrical engineering to know why this is good or bad. I told the Shunyata Dealer what I did, and he didn't criticize it, as long as it sounds nice.
As I said in my related thread, I'm using the Triton direct now directly into the wall (via an old extra long Shunyata Anaconda 20 amp cord) and it is even more miraculous. Every darn image is locked in place outside the speakers with more texture and placement information in all dimensions.
Just beautiful controlled bass, no more abrasion in the highs (but no frequency limitations of any kind, in fact the bass is a bit deeper but with no thickness or boom). Everything in the whole gestalt I look for in the sound of a speaker or whole system is way improved. The Triton is just brilliant. Everyone who really cares about the sound of their system should get one. I never say anything unequivocally about a component, because it's always a matter of taste or maybe synergy, but I'm pretty confident about this. (I tried to be humble here, but just can't. I love this thing.)
I agree about the ZiTron Coba power cords. They are a significant step forward from the last generation of power cords, let me tell you. And to be able to get the cheap line of speaker cable (Cobra, and I meant "relatively cheap") and hear its low noise, floor, excellent tonality in bass, midrange AND highs is stunning. I'm waiting for the Cobra interconnect to come in. It's going to replace a Nordost Frey (and Valhalla) for a little while. I've heard the Zi-Tron speaker cables before and the power cords, but never the interconnect. I expect it should be a fantastic fit in the system and the synergy should be excellent.
