    Shunyata Denali 6000/S v2

    There will NOT be a new “T” version.









    Shunyata Research is excited to announce that the new Denali 6000/S v2 is available and ready for shipment. The Denali 6000/S v2 is a pure reference caliber six-outlet, shelf mount power conditioner featuring patented NIC and QR/BB technology.

    Dramatic Performance Enhancements
    The original Hydra Denali 6000 received world-wide acclaim, rave reviews and multiple Product of the Year Awards. The Denali 6000/S v2 improves upon that with even lower measurable noise along with vastly improved DTCD (peak-current) performance -- across ALL outlets. Denali 6000/S v2 now features six zones of noise isolation to eliminate cross-talk between outlets. These dramatic improvements are derived from advances within Shunyata Research’s sister company, Clear Image Scientific, which has radically enhanced systems across the medical imaging and scientific communities.

    Refined Aesthetic
    The Denali 6000/S v2 has a new aesthetic featuring a clean screw-less design in an elegant all aluminum chassis with a beautiful brushed aluminum faceplate. The Denali 6000/S is now available in silver/grey or black.

    The Denali 6000/S v2 sets the bar impossibly high as an industry standard by delivering patented, state-of-the-art performance at a previously unattainable price point.

    Retail price: $4500 US

    Very cool! Nice to see that "research" at Shunyata Research continues, and the advances and developments from Clear Image Scientific are cascading over to the Shunyata Research portfolio of products.

    Perhaps they have a tower replacement/successor to the 6000T in the near future.

    Id be interested in Denali 7000t that is slightly larger but better performing.

    A 6 outlet tower that borrows some of the typhon Qr tech.

    But priced below a Triton v3.

    I also prefer the tower form factor.


    We shall see..

    Nobody says that there won’t be a tower product. And the Denali 6000/T continues on in some of our worldwide markets. For instance, the Denali 6000/T UK version was actually the first (version 2) product. We just didn’t call it a version 2 since it was the first U.K. version produced. And it has won multiple POY awards and rave reviews. So the Denali tower is not going away anytime soon.

    The Denali D2000/T is being end-of-lifed. They can be purchased at very attractive discounts and are exceptional when used with mono-block amplifiers.

    I can vouch for that. Before I got my Denali 2000s (one for each amp) the amps were plugged into the Shunyata AC receptacles on each dedicated line. After installing the 2000 on each line, the background noise was lowered, and the amps sounded better. The interesting part was I wasn’t aware of the noise until it was gone.

    Thanks for the clarification, Caelin. One more question from me if you don’t mind. So, current 6000/T UK version has performance gain over 6000/T US version?

    I love my 6000/T because it’s sleek, saves a rack space, looks good and more importantly sounds good.

    Re: Shunyata Denali 6000/S v2

    I'm more confused than before we began. Will there or won't there be a 6000/T v2 in the future?

    Sometimes there are advantages to being last. The UK Denali was the last to be developed so was the beneficiary of some improvements that we had made over the years.

    What about the AU Denali? Denali is not yet available in the Australian market. So I tried to get one in Singapore recently. Couldn't. Do I have to fly all the way to Hong Kong to be able to buy a 230V Denali?

    The problem is, for those customers in Australia who already have a comprehensive set of various US power cables, they can't be used with an AU Denali.

    Re: Shunyata Denali 6000/S v2

    So, the 6000/S v2:

    (1) Has 6 seperate isolated outlets and not 3 isolated duplexes? That would be a first. If accurate, can someone please explain the wiring scheme.

    (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?

    Regarding item 1. Maybe I am reading it wrong but as I understand all six are now "high current" rather than just the two on the 6000T. I don't think all six are isolated. Again, I defer to Shunyata.

    Hi Caelin,

    Apologies if I'm missing something but the above doesn't provide insight regarding my earlier inquiries.

    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.

    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.

    We don’t target anything. Maybe the other way round?

    This is just another evolvement of our technology and products.

    BTW, the Denali is now on the website with photos for those that’s are interested. And hints of more to come soon.

    Well put. Looking forward to the Denali 6000T successor.

    Caelin,

    Btw is it correct that all your products with the exception of the entry level venom line are Produced in the United States ?

    Frankly to me this is a huge deal to me as I’m sure many others here.

    ALL of our power distributors are made in Poulsbo WA USA including the Venom Line which we are very proud of.

    We are so proud of the technology, design, in-house workmanship and reliability that all of our power distributors come with a LIFETIME warranty.

    Caelin, all that is great, makes me want to buy one even more. But as I said before a few times, I can't.

    Caelin, the 6000/S V2 specs don't show a peak instantaneous output current rating, whereas the T model and Triton specs do. Will this info be made available?

    Peak instantaneous current is whatever the power-line is capable of delivering. I have measured over 1200 amps using the ASCC tester on our dedicated lines that were installed to our reference room.

    And to clarify that more, the power cords that you use could be the limiting factor if you are using stock cords.

    If you really want to do a comparison then wait a couple weeks for the Alpha A12.

    it.s like mini Triton v3 to me
    if I can buy D2000T and put it in front of D6000S v1,
    will it give the QRBB benefit for non-HC zones in D6000S v1? (Although might not give high current benefit)

    also, does it mean that d6000s v2 will still have the special filter that is used in the medical unit as well? Or purely NIC/QRBB a la Triton v3?

    thanks again

    The DENALI 6000/S v2 has everything.
    - The medical filters that isolated each outlet one to the others.

    - QR/BB tech for all outlets to improve dynamics

    - GP-NR system to reduce ground and chassis noise

    - Shunyata CopperCONN pure copper outlets (US)

    - Vibration management

    Generally speaking I don’t recommend cascading power conditioners. It requires an extra power cord that adds to the total cost of the power system. And the extra power cord can reduce DTCD and reduce performance unless you use a very good cable (expensive).

    In power systems, simplicity is better. Adding more devices to reduce noise at the expense of DTCD is a net loser strategy. You are robbing Peter to pay Paul. The Denali 6000/S mated to a good power cord is all you need. “Mischief managed” to borrow from Harry Potter. I have seen customers with three, four even five power boxes and gizmos trying get the optimal power system. I ask them to just give this a try - disconnect all of them - then put in one Denali or Triton and give it a try. I have never had a person go back to the ridiculously complex setup.

    Caelin ,

    The Denali 6000s V2 sounds a like a winner.

    But, what about us 6000t v1 owners that want those features and perhaps even more performance but , prefer the tower form factor ?

    Can you speak on its successor yet ? If so will it sit above the current 6000t but below the triton v3 in your lineup in both performance and retail price ?

    thank you

    So - I always like to just answer straight-up when people ask questions. But then I get in trouble with my marketing and sales staff. You can’t have a rogue scientist running around on the forums.

    What I can say is the Denali is not going away. The DENALI 6000/T UK is a version 2 since it was the last tower developed. We make power conditioners for many different regions of the world and some of them are unique to that region. For example an EU and a US Denali are not identical internally due to voltage and power grid differences between regions. And distributors in certain regions may chose to only import specific models.

    With that said, it is obvious that we have not announced a new tower model for the US. market. I developed the tower concept to solve real world issues that bothered me personally so I am committed to that platform.

    There will be many announcements in the coming weeks. We are busy with many products that have been in development during the last two years that are all coming to fruition. Alpha and Sigma USB cables, Ethernet cables, Denali v2, Venom NR Series power cords and the soon to be released “Performance Line” of power conditioners including Delta, Alpha and Sigma models. And then even more coming later in the year, so stay tuned.

    My Denali 2000T works best when I put it after an isolation balanced transformer! A single 2000T works very well though, an additional balanced transformer had brought my system totally to a new level!
    I have tried to connect them in another sequence. 2000T before the isolation transformer and then to the power amp. The Red led of my 2000T lights up?! I don't understand why? The transformer hasn't even been turned on yet!
    So I disconnect them immediately and putting them in reverse order. They return to normal operation and works wonderful!

    Caelin, that means it is not worthy for us to buy a D2000T to work in front of D6000S v2?
