    Re: Ascending to even greater heights

    I received an email today from a dealer in Utah, announcing the Everest, and including the price. I am not posting the price, as it would seem from Caelin's posts that Shunyata doesn't want it revealed yet. I have no way of knowing whether that price is accurate, but I will hold off sharing it unless Caelin gives me his blessing to do so. I will say that if the price in the email is correct, I am pleasantly surprised...

    Everest is 1.43x taller than Denali...

    Re: Ascending to even greater heights

    Ok. Maybe I will take a stab at decoding the pic. The waterfall at the bottom is clearly Niagara falls at 167'. It seems that perhaps this is a hint at the comparative performance of the AQ Niagara 5000/7000 vs. the Denali/Everest. Perhaps it is not a co-incidence that the Denali is at the same price point as the Niagara 5000 -- $5000. If we carry this a step farther then we might infer that the Everest will be the same as the Niagara 7000 -- $9500.

    We will see.

    Re: Ascending to even greater heights

    My bet is on the ratio of altitude vs Denali, meaning that the Everest is 1.5x better and more expensive.

    Re: Ascending to even greater heights

    My interpretation is that Everest = $4000. If enough people wish it, that’s what Caelin will price it at. So I heard.

    Well, the discussion is purely based on the hints that Caelin himself choose to provide to us.

    It isn’t based on any personal wish.

    If the initially posted image means something, and we are told it does, there is logic in thinking that it may be 1.5x5,000=7,500 while I don’t see any logic supporting the 4,000 US$ guess.

    As a result it seems that there is a higher probability that it could be 7,500 rather than 4.000.

    Although some high level officials have given up on logic, it still governs 99.999% of the world.

    Besides, I assume that you share my feeling thaf cheaper is better?

    Or you are extremely wealthy and competitive and hope that it’s going to cost 100,000 US$ so that only you can benefit from the exquisite sound it’s going to deliver?

    I think you missed the humor of kzhtoo's post.

    I'm betting and hoping it is under 10K US MSP and my personal guess is $9K-9500 USD so, less than an AQ Niagara 7000 US retail.

    If they price it at or undercut the Niagara 7000 (Their main competitor) as one member suggested, that would be ideal.

    The Omega QR power cable priced aggressively 9K USD in a 2M compared to the AQ Dragon HC at $9800 for 2M.

    Maybe not relevant but, flagship to flagship product competitor to competitor.

    Re: Ascending to even greater heights

    Whether we calculate the price based on the height differences of the mountains, or based on the price of any importer I have had access to, I can only say that the US customers are going to be very lucky.

    It looks like the humor in mine isn’t coming accross... :-)

    But I wrote that with a big smile I can assure you.

    We’ll see what the price ends up being.

    Hi Caelin,

    I recently preordered an Everest. I am presently running a Denali 6000 V2 preconditioned with a Typhon QR which to my ears and in my system sounds better than the Denali sans Typhon. Now that I see what you’ve written, “we have something coming that will make Denali 6000/S owners happy,” should I rethink my purchase of the Everest as I am concerned about making a lateral move from my Denali v2/Typhon QR combination; especially since you don’t give any details what is coming for Denali 6000 v2 owners. Thanks.

    If you want the best and can afford it, then get the Everest.
    I would keep the TQR and try it with the Everest and see if it is worth keeping.

    Also the TQR can be used a standalone device for the amplifier. Many people are using the Typhon as a performance supercharger for their amplifiers.

    Thanks, your input is most appreciated.

    It should prove to be an interesting comparison. I would try the TQR with my Ayre MX-R 20 mono-blocks on their own dedicated AC lines, but unfortunately I only have one.

    Maybe I will audition the Omega NR power cords with my mono-block amps since they are on their own dedicated AC line. I might also try to add them to the Everest along with my other gear on one dedicated AC line. Do you think that would be appropriate as I’m concerned that adding the amps to one AC line with my other gear might hinder dynamics?

    You can think about multiple dedicated lines as potential horsepower.
    Think of one dedicated line as a 200hp 4 cylinder engine.
    Then, two dedicated would be equivalent to an 8 cylinder 400hp engine.

    The 4 cylinder can haul your sports car, source equipment around just fine. But add a heavy trailer (big assed amplifiers) and that 4 cyl will be dogging it.

    If you want to pull a trailer with heavy loads - get an 8 cyl.

    In the power conditioner world, horsepower is equivalent to continuous current capacity and DTCD (dynamic transient current delivery).

    FYI noise reduction capabilities have zero effect on current capacity and DTCD. So having a good power conditioner is not a substitute for total current capacity.

    Thanks Caelin. That’s pretty much what I thought and what others have also said or implied, but I wanted to get your take on it with regards to Shunyata power distributors. BTW, your analogies are are great in helping to explain it.

    That being said, commodity power cords can actually decrease DTCD by as much as 50%.

    Many power conditioners may significantly reduce DTCD and continuous current capacity especially those that contain transformers, coils, toroids, ferrite beads, thermal breakers, small gauge conductors and poor quality connectors.

    This is the fundamental and cardinal rule for power distributor design: “Do not limited or impede continuous current and DTCD.” And that is before we even begin to talk about noise reduction approaches and technologies.

    Caelin,
    As you raised the importance of DTCD, could you please advice if QR/BB can help to “increase” DTCD?
    I mean as long as we have “QR/BB equipped distributor” (in Denali etc.) before the audio equipment, will it help to improve DTCD of current delivered by cable from wall outlet to “ QR/BB equipped distributor” ?

    Over the yearss I have auditioned and owned many many power conditioners of all kinds and types including “power regenerators.” While many have helped in one way or another; all have had sonic or video downsides including limiting dynamics or worse things. The worst offenders which I have owned were those which used transformers.

    IMHO, power is most important and at the beginning of the chain; whether it be audio or video. As one reviewer stated many years ago when he reviewed a power conditioner, “You can’t make good lemonade without good water.

    Do no harm and IMO, Shunyata gets it right and just keeps getting better and better.

    Just my 2 cents.

    To answer that in a scientifically accurate manner is beyond the scope of this forum. If you are truly interested, I would suggest that you read the patent.

    US Patent: 10,031,536

    The non-technical answer is that it would not increase the current capacity of your power line. If it is a dedicated line that has a capacity of 15A it will still deliver 15A. But the QR/BB does improve instantaneous electrical charge response. The benefit being that your audio equipment will "breathe" easier and deliver better audio perception of what we as audiophiles call "dynamics".

    would it even sound better if the omega was connected directly inside the eversest, without the plugs?

    There is no need for such tweaks. The plugs and connectors are all exceptional. The inconvenience of having a large, heavy chassis with a captive cord the size of the Omega would be incredibly burdensome. And it is not necessary. There is MORE than enough performance available from the Everest and Omega.

    Absolutely. Not to answer for RLF but many people report that the Denali or other Hydra models have significantly improved video performance.

    That is exactly my experience with the V2 cables. Alpha 2 NR for sources/preamps, XC's for Tritons. There is an increased clarity and definition, color separation, white is more white etc., ANSI contrast without distorting or making it look fake-HDR. Extremely transparent picture.

    lol, sounds religious to me.
    no display review has mentined anything like this the last 30 years. it would be measurable easely as well.
    i did change multiple tv, from tube tv until 4k, from bad placing to highend racks, footers, pc and distributors. the picture never changed. the sound did.
    i ll report back once i get the everset

    My 75" Sony Z9D TV had great picture improvements with an older (4-5 years) Shunyata power cord. Plus I had to splice in a socket to the TV in order to use the power cord.

    Most people are "non-believers". We have an ancestral trail of "converts" going back more than 20 years. Each one needed to prove it to themselves.

    Try it yourself. Use a decent TV or monitor and a good DVD 4K source.
    The Venom V14 Digital PC is a good inexpensive cable to use for such a test.

    And there are many reviews where this has been mentioned. Some people even claiming that it improved the video for their computer monitors.

    Maybe you are more of critical listener rather than a critical viewer? It’s not unheard of.
