  • Shunyata Triton Version 3

    Interested in opinions on the new Shunyata Triton Version 3. I have a Shunyata Denali 6000t and it is excellent. The Denali replaced a Triton Version 1. The Triton V1 was really a nice product. The Denali is more open, dynamic and the noise floor is actually lower. It the Triton V3 is an improvement over the Denali, it will be an awesome product. Hoping the price is not too crazy.

    A friend owns the Denali and swears to it. But he does nkt have dedicated lines and grounding isolated
    in theory it looks like it removes noise that ride on the sign wave a simple chock cap setup. But again hearing is believing
    analog stuff.

      I have dedicated mains. The municipal power grid at my humble abode is not great, but not horrible. With suburban growth, it is overtaxed. For source equipment(I am all tubes-even my digital has a tube based output), the noise floor is much lower with the Denali. As mentioned in my earlier post, the Denali is more open and dynamic then the Shunyata Triton (V1). The Triton(V1) is definitely a quality product. Because the Denali only has 6 outlets, I maintain the Triton(V1) for my A/V system. I have made quite a few A/B comparisons. With source components, the Denali is an exceptional product in my system. Amazing that Shunyata can come out with a less expensive product that outperforms its more expensive sibling(Definately with Triton(V1). I have heard Denali out performs Triton V2 and Typhoon) No personal experience with V2 and Typhoon. I am sure they perform way above the norm.

      On the Denali, there are two connections for high current amps, etc. They utilize some patented QR/BB technology. I do not know what that entails from an electrical standpoint. These two high output connections are supposed to reduce noise and improve dynamics as compared to plugging these components into the wall. My A/V system(5 channel) utilizes an Arcam integrated & separate power amp for bass. The Denali works very well on these solid state items. For my 2 channel, I have a little older Lamm ML1.1. The ML1.1 is a 90 watt push pull that utilizes 6C33C output tube. I called Vladimir at Lamm. He recommended running his amp's directly to my dedicated mains. (Lamm amps actually contain internal power conditioning) With the Lamm's plugged into the high current connections of the Denali, the sound was actually smoother(especially noticeable on marginal digital recordings); however, I lost some of the dynamics as compared to plugging the Lamm's directly into the wall. I talked to my dealer and Richard at Shunyata(Both have exceptional customer service). They said that my experience is rather isolated. Since my Arcam Integrated & Amp benefited from Denali, it might be isolated to my Lamm amps. With my Lamm's, I still prefer running them directly into the wall.

      To not get sidetracked from my original post, any info on the new Triton Version 3 would be cool. I am not a dealer. I am just an average consumer. Really happy with Shunyata products.

        Wrt Lamm M1.2 Ref amps, I prefer to run them directly into dedicated 20A line wall outlets.
        I've tried running them through a Hydra Triton and prefer straight to the wall.
        The other outlet on the duplex runs a Hydra Typhon which cleanses that specific dedicated line.
        Both mono-blocks have the same infrastructure.

        The picture is a bit dated - the amps now sit on SRA Ohio Class amp stands built for the M1.2Ref.
        The Typhon sits on four Stillpoints Minis.

        Wrt to Hydra Tritons, I reviewed both the V1 and V2 and used both with a Typhon. . When I first got the V2 I wondered how much better can it get from the V1. The differences were actually quite significant. I have not used the V3. Aside from some upgraded filtering and whatever is the QR/BB technology, I'm unclear about further changes from V2 to V3.but I'm tempted to ask the same question. With each amp on its on nearby outlet, there is no need, in my setup, for an amp power distributor. (I do need one on my front-end.) The V3 is so new that reviews and commentaries have not caught up with it yet.

          Thanks for your reply. Your system looks great. Very clean and uncluttered. I am sure that it sounds awesome. As far as the Triton V1 to Triton V2, I heard it was a significant upgrade. How much of an impact does the Typhoon have on your Lamm 1.2 Ref's? Like you, I have Stillpoints under both my Denali and V1 Triton.

          The Typhon helps mitigate the noise put back on the line by the Lamm's power supply. The effect is less than that of the Triton/Typhon on my front-end because the amp's Typhon's line cleansing is faced with noise from a single component and my dedicated lines are fairly quiet to begin with. But the effect is clearly audible, bringing further quiet and bringing out a bit more detail - all without impacting dynamics or current delivery.

        Have you tried the front end in the high current outlets and vice versa my friend commented on trying this too. The device seems simple but does really work it's filtering noise on the AC line
        for me I use two ps audio p10 units plus and isolation transformer rated at 10k. I have little doubt it would improve even my power setup and it's completely isolated from the grid and all else in my place. Isontransfomers have a purpose but they do nkt elimnate noise pit back on the lines from our devices as your Denali does.
        i for one would not use it for power Amps for the purpose you hear pure direct wall power or ISO I would think is best
        now all else I would think would benefit
        just so you know even the outlet you use for it is now being noise reduced as well. So for your Amps try pluging in your Amps before the Denali not into it
        just giving you ideas would love to read a reply
        nice device

          I have a CJ Gat (V1). It uses 6922's and I own a few flavors of them. I have run my pre-amp into the high current connections on the Denali. From what I understand, the high current connections have less filtering & increased dynamics compared to the std connections. I prefer the standard connections for my pre-amp. The background seems quieter and the soundstage seems like it has more depth. In general, I am very please with how quiet my system is. With the volume up fairly significantly in an all tube system, I have to put my ear almost directly on the midrange driver or tweeter to hear any noise with a selected source & no input signal.

          I was not aware that my outlets were benefiting from the Denali. I will try messing around with it. Unlike Tima's super clean and uncluttered set-up, mine is a little more cluttered with my 2 channel and A/V working off the same wall. It is a little more challenging to make changes with connections to my main's. Definitely worth a try. Thanks for reply.
