    Thanks Caelin, from the patent document, I read that QRBB takes care of “hot” and “neutral”, how does Typhon QR treat ground? Does it go to separate NIC?

    The Triton is the only distributor that reduces ground noise using an NIC. However, the Typhon reduces chassis ground noise using a toroid. So, a more conventional approach there.

    Thanks Caelin, sorry for ongoing question, quite excited with your invention. Will it be a good idea to connect Typhon QR ground chasis “back” to Triton’s CGS while Typhon QR is in front of Triton?

    I asked that QR to Triton ground question a while back, and Grant said the umbilical handles that task.

    Thanks Bluefox,
    I was just curious, umbilical to handle grounding sounds a typical ground in the cable whic connect to outlet grounding.
    Caelin response was a completely new information (using a toroid to reduce chasis ground, I assume it is a toroidal transforner), curious if different grounding method (toroid and NIC) will be a good additive

    Re: Typhon QR initial impressions.

    Sure. Maybe Caelin can confirm that.

    Back to a more serious issue.

    I sent my Typhon v1 in for the QR upgrade, and want a black face plate since it will be in my HT. Unfortunately, they are out of black face plates, and they won't arrive until Friday, 8/10. Then my QR will ship back to me. Oh, the inhumanity! At least two weekends with only a Triton v3 in the HT. How will I survive.

    Come on, it’s not issue at all compared to mine .
    Still trying hard to convince myself (and wife ) to buy just 1 Typhon QR at that price as it’s nearly impossible to get home demo in my place

    Yes. I know that feeling. I was very hesitant to get the QR, and want to thank again Mike and Shunyata for letting me have an evaluation unit. At least for me, the QR greatly surpassed the v1 Typhon in the stereo.

    Bud,
    Read that you are using 2000t for your power amps, have you made experiment to use Typhon QR then connect to 2000t then to your monoblocks as Caelin advice in this link http://www.audioshark.org/shunyata-r...892-page4.html ?

    Did it sound better to you?

    thanks
