Shunyata Triton

OK, here is my 1-hour-new experience with the Triton.

OMG, I hooked up the Triton in a quick manner chained with my old Vray2 (Vray to wall, Triton to Vray, all components into Triton) and it immediately transformed the sound immensely!
With my eyes closed I would think I had new speakers. Tight controlled bass (that had been slightly flabby), MUCH rounder, more developed images with beautiful texture.
The whole soundscape has much more depth even though my 2-way monitor speakers are close to the wall. A problem I had was that I was constantly moving my chair or head side to side because
the soundfield would sometimes collapse to the right or left (I have no balance control on my preamp, but I find balance controls usually do more harm than good anyway, like tone controls),
and, miraculously, something I was not expecting, the Triton seems to fix that. Unbelievable.

Previously, if I angled my speakers inward to improve the imaging (firm up the image placement), the tweeters would beam somewhat and be a little bright and fatiguing. The Triton now lets me toe-in the speakers and the highs are not overdone at all, but they still soar and are very sweet, just right.

I've had a number of power conditioners before and the affects were either subtly very good or they did
harm (like a forward sound from re-generators, or muddy bass when a power amp was plugged into them). The Triton is not subtle. It is just plain great.

Everybody should strive to get one of these, IMHO of course.
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.
The other thing you might be hearing is just the Triton is better, that was my experience anyway vs my vray2. I think the only issue is would this constrain any dynamics...might be better separate. If you try the Triton alone, let me know if it's better or just different then daisy chaining...
I would love to hear how Triton performs on high current power amps. Cause I auditioned Hydra 6 and didn't buy it because it seriously slowed down my Electrocompaniet NEMO.
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.)
Good job, nice report. Always plug Triton directly to wall, and you should get a c19 VTX Hydra cord. Then you can daisy chain off of the triton if you need to.
Thanks for that Chashas1. I'm using an old Anaconda Alpha 20 amp cord for the Triton to the wall. Thanks for the tip on the C19VTX; that's new to me.
It is "the" one to use. And it's less money!
Specially made for the power distributions, like the Triton.
And even adding an extra M is affordable.
You did well! Now get the proper cord.
Interesting. That's an inexpensive cord by Shunyata standards.
Thanks again.
It's specially designed for the Triton and Talos.
As for price? Fits in with Shunyatas non-gouge policy...
Also check out the new Zitron Cobra power cord. For $995 it's a steal.
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.
Rgs92, you plug your amps into your conditioner?
My dealer say if I buy a Triton I must use the very expensive new Anaconda C19 as power cable (4500USD in Europe) from Triton to wall. Is this true? Whats the price of that cable in US?
Cant I buy a older used Anaconda or the Zitron Cobra you talking about.
I tried various cords, and and old original Shunyata Anaconda 20-amp cord works best with my Triton. Yes my amps are plugged into it.
