    (2) Built in SSF-38 footers?

    (3) Improved performance that now puts it on a level playing field with the 6000/T which was a better performing unit than the original 6000/S?
    1) Our wiring scheme and filters are proprietary and the entire assembly is hermetically sealed. There will be internal photos of the internals on the website soon.

    2) SSF-38s are standard equipment

    3) This is entirely a subjective question and there will be as many different answers as people you ask. If you want my personal assessment - then yes the v2 is superior to both the T and S models. Taking nothing away from the originals. They are still incredibly good. But there have been refinements to performance. How much I will leave to the pundits and first adopters.

    BTW we already have 20 orders that have been submitted already. So it seems that there is a lot of initial interest so I am sure someone will be giving their impressions soon.

    Thanks Caelin. So there are six isolated high current zones. Impressive. I assume that feedback was that the earlier arrangement with four non-high current outlets was not as beneficial as expected and users found that high current outlets generally sound better even for digital equipment and other low wattage equipment?

    Yes, I imagine there would be a lot of interest given the enhancements

    I'm a little confused by this - you want an Asian unit (230V with US outlets), right? I haven't purchased Shunyata gear in Singapore but have purchased other components from there (wonderful place to visit and do some audio shopping). Are you saying the Shunyata dealer in Singapore won't do business with you or you're not interested in wiring funds to close a deal (in my experience, Singapore is cash only)? Also, your Australian dealer won't special order an Asian unit?

    The folks at Shunyata are simply unparalleled in caring for their customers in my experience - have you tried calling/emailing them directly to see if they can help out?

    Shunyata told me - or perhaps suggested - if I wanted a 230V Denali with US outlets, to source a used one. The Australian distributor told me they would not do a special order (because that configuration is not being submitted for compliance testing for local sale). The Singapore distributor initially agreed to sell me one, but for whatever reason, had a change of mind.

    My guess is that Shunyata, the Singapore and Australian distributors are bound by laws that govern what types of electrical devices can be sold within their respective countries to be within safety and electrical hazard compliance regulations. For example, if I understand it correctly, a manufacturer or distributor cannot sell an electronic device that does not comply with USA-specific IEC regulations.

    I'll give a similar example: a friend of mine bought my C-J Premier 11A power amp while he still lived in the USA. When he was going to move to Italy, I told him to ship it to C-J to convert it to European 230V configuration. Regardless, Italian regulations would not allow him to bring that device into Italy, even if it had been converted; it would not pass Customs. The device had to be sold new in Italy in to be in compliance with current Italian electrical regulations.

    Sure. Which leaves me unable to buy one. Which is unfortunate.

    Ground plane noise reduction system with copper ground lug....
    Caelin,
    does it mean all outlets will have the benefits of QRBB or only 2 outlets like V1?
    lastly, any difference on the ground lug feature vs. V1?

    thanks

    Yes all outlets are functionally equal. They are all filter and each is HC with QR/BB tech.

    The D6/S v2 also includes a ground-plane noise reduction system similar to the CGS system pioneered in the Triton v3. In the Denali it is called GP-NR system. It reduces noise in the grounding system and chassis. It includes a grounding terminal on the back of the unit to connect external equipment if desired. Just remember that the components plugged into the Denali with a power cord will benefit from the lower GP noise as long as you did not disable the ground pin of the power cable. This system actually makes quite a noticeable difference in audio performance.

    Promising well thought out improvements to original Denalis. Interested in comparisons with AQ Niagara 5000, which this product seems to target.
