    And, of course, the newly announced Omega Ethernet is also of interest.

    OK, it didn't happen then.

    I don't see value in displaying the messy cable nest behind my hifi piece of furniture. Contrary to many here, the game for me is to hide my system since I use it in our family living room. The only thing visible are the speakers and the 2 Devialet units, but even them are half hidden.

    Re: Unpacking the Shunyata Everest 8000

    Things are starting to sound pretty good here!

    It’s only been 10~15 hours but I am pretty sure it’s overall already better than my PS Audio P10 that has been in use for many years.

    No doubt it will continue to improve.

    Cheers,

    Cool...it will get better every day for the next 7-10 days or so.

    If you went back to the P10 after Everest as has fully settled, you probably notice quite a difference as the brain "standardizes to the new level/presentation as "normal" pretty quickly. This is because the perception of "music" is not "phenomenon of physics", but rather the result of a sophisticated brain activity, requiring processing in the right temporal gyrus, caudate nucleus and cingulate gyrus, to name a few.

    so does that mean things get better in any case just because the brain adapted it?

    No, what it means is that your brain adapts pretty quickly adapt to what "normal" is, especially with improvements that make the presentation more natural, accurate, and "right". This is why it's often very instructive, after making an upgrade to a superior-sounding component, to go back to the previous component and listen again; you'll hear its shortcomings pretty easily.

    Re: Unpacking the Shunyata Everest 8000

    Yes it does make sense indeed.

    I did perform some other minor changes also which involve connecting non essential devices to a Venom PS-8, connecting with grounding cables my amps and source LPS to the grounding posts of the Everest,...

    Re: Unpacking the Shunyata Everest 8000

    Hello everyone,
    Today I have a Denali V2 connected to the wall outlet with a Sigma XC. I am now considering to upgrade the Denali V2 to a Everest OR keeping the Denali V2 and buy a Omega XC to replace the Sigma XC. I have already tried the Omega XC with a positive outcome but I have no possibility to audition the Everest.
    So what would your recommendation be -Everest or Omega XC?

    Both make an impact, but for me, Everest did all the things my Denali 6000s/v2 did, and so much more. More layering. More harmonic richness. Less noise.

    Everest.

    As good as the Omega XC is, it doesn't have very large QR/BB or CMode devices. Those devices do a LOT for the impact Everest has on the presentation.

    If two big monoblocks such as Gryphon Mephisto Mono are plugged into one Everest, so we need another Everest for the preamp & frontends?

    If your AC power mains circuit can handle it, so can the Everest. It can accept a 30A rated power circuit. If you have monster amplifiers that require a dedicated 20 or 30 amp circuit you should consider the Omega QR for each amplifier. As an alternative, we have a new, 2-outlet product coming soon.

    Re: Unpacking the Shunyata Everest 8000

    South Base camp in Nepal is 5364 metres, think I lost the train of thought there for product name.

    Omega XC + Everest + 2x Sigma NR V2
    vs
    2x Omega QR

    Not having heard the Omega QR but this is what I would have considered if starting from scratch with 2 large mono amps.

    The keep it simple paradigm and all that plus you get those nice cable feet with the omegas QR’s ;-)

    Caelin,
    can you elaborate more on the new 2-outlet product you mentioned above? Will it be bigger version of D2000T or more like Typhon QR with 2 outlet? or is it the “companion” for Denali 6000 that you mentioned in the past?

    thanks

    Re: Unpacking the Shunyata Everest 8000

    After one month with the Omega and Everest, together with several other system tweaks (Gik room conditioning, an uptone LPS to power the Melco S100, a Sonore OpticalModule for ethernet insulation, Townshend rack vibration insulation,...), things are starting to sound pretty amazing here.

    When I thought it couldn’t get any better... well it is.

    An amazing presence, total lack of noise and totally black background. A seemless continuum from the deepest and super controlled bass to crystalline highs that don’t hurt the ear yet are of incredible clarity. The Everest is indeec remarkable.

    Luck in components selection has played a big part... but this system is getting very very special. I realize how incredibly good the Wilson Benesch and Devialet are when fed by best in class power.

    I can only wonder what the planned addition of a Cybershaft OP21A-D to clock thé EtheRegen will do... just waiting for the Sigma clock cables and Omega ethernet cables to ship.

    Cheers,
    Bernard

    Re: Unpacking the Shunyata Everest 8000

    Hi Caelin,

    i got a question regarding the proper support surface for the Everest (before doing the upgrade for the Denali v2): Was planing to buy some slate plate (because it looks rather nice with charcoal grey vs silver contrast) and place the Everest on top.

    => Are the feet the Everest comes with enough isolation from vibrations of speakers / subwoofer so that the insides do not take any long-term damage?

    ... I ask because I still feel some vibration in the Denali (placed in my Finite Elemente Rack). My idea was to buy some Isoacoustics Orea components feet for the Everest since they totally dampen any vibrations that might come from the floor into the component.

    I know that there are different sonic schools of thought behind coupling and decoupling, but my main priority was to not do any harm to the Everest‘s internals from bass vibrations from the floor.

    Kind regards and thanks a lot in advance!!

    Its going to end in a very good place. You'll likely note consistent improvements in Everest as it settles over the next 7-10 days.

    Also, don't forget about using the GP-NR system that comes with Everest; it can bring a notable improvement as well.

    I have the feeling it willUnpacking the Shunyata Everest 8000
    I am using the Grounding cables already today with my Denali V2 - and the improvement are impressive when connected. What was interesting were the difference in sound between the different grounding cables. After auditioning the whole line of models, it was unavoidable to end up with the Sigma GN cable...Unpacking the Shunyata Everest 8000
    This is my fourth power conditioner from Shunyata. Previously I have used the Cyclops V2, the Denali V1, and until today the Denali V2 - non of them have let me down so far - And I don’t think the Everest will either!Unpacking the Shunyata Everest 8000

    I am Sorry if I was unclear - all models could be physically connected to the Denali without any problem - but after listening to the Sigma GN and the sound improvement it brought, it was, for me, an easy decision to buy the Sigma GN - it was not a matter of units that did not benefit from being connected to the ground of the Denali.

    Re: Unpacking the Shunyata Everest 8000

    My understanding from what Caelin has previously said is that the benefit of the grounding system happens when you plug the component into the Denali with the power cord. If you can't plug the component into the Denali and it has a grounding point you ground it to the Denali's grounding system. There is no additional benefit in using the grounding system with components that are powered by the Denali. Which is why your observation seems odd if you're hearing improvements in grounding components already connected because that seems to be contrary to what Caelin said. Unless I'm mistaken.

    Re: Unpacking the Shunyata Everest 8000

    It would seem, from Bjorn's comments, that despite having a device/power supply properly grounded to the Denali/Everest that adding a grounding cable, especially a top-notch one like the Sigma, makes things better somehow. And from what I understand, each device/manufacturer has their own method of grounding the elements of their devices. So, it seems it becomes a matter of experimentation...

    I've seen several users say that there's a significant benefit even though this application is not what Shunyata designed the ground terminal for. Is this benefit real? I don't know. Just sayin'.

    Its very much a matter of experimentation that is required. If my understanding is correct, if a component has a PC with a ground pin and is plugged into a Denali V2 or Everest, adding another, e.g. a CGS cable to provide chassis grounding, theoretically provides no advantage. However: grounding and ground loops can be complex, even for professional EE's, and the grounding for all components is by no means uniform or systematic. The guidance I've seen from Shunyata is to try it and see if you can hear a benefit, or not. If you hear a benefit, you can consider getting one of the Shunyata CGS/SGS ground cables and...they do sound better as you move up the line. My understanding is that the GP-NR system in Denali and Everest PDs is to provide chassis grounding for components that may be powered from a wall receptacle, but would benefit from the Shunyata GP-NR system. Also, this system is for chassis grounding, not signal grounding (they are completely different things altogether. See? I said it could be complex).

    The answer is...it depends. How's that for definitive?

    I recommend saving the image to your desktop which makes it easier to read.

    Re: Unpacking the Shunyata Everest 8000

    The ground terminals on the back of our power conditioners are primarily designed so that you can connect multiple power conditioners to each other. This provides a common ground which reduces the possibility of ground loops between different AC line sources. They also allow you to connect the chassis ground of the amplifier(s) which are usually on a separate AC line to the power conditioner ground. This provides a "common ground" for all components in the system that may not necessarily be powered from the power conditioner.

    The GP-NR does that and more. It actually reduces noise on the ground plane internally within the Everest. And the four ground terminals on the back of the unit allow you to connect your audio component chassis' grounds to this ground noise reduction system.

    Even though it is true that the power cord provides a ground connection to each component through the power conditioner, external and separate ground cables connected to the Everest GP-NR system can improve performance. This has several reasons. First the separate ground wires are not in close proximity to the HOT and NEUTRAL wire within the power cable. The ground in the power cable is subject to inductive and capacitive coupling of noise. And a secondary ground provides an individual ground wire reducing the total impedance to earth for each component. This can also help reduce small amounts of hum and residual noise.

    In some cases, the effect is minor but in others it can be quite dramatic. And as the OP about GP-NR noted that the sound quality can be improved.

    My best advice — if you have an Everest — try using the GP-NR and listen to the result. Then, experiment with better quality ground cables. This should be fun, not so serious. Let's have fun with it.

    I've used CGS10 cables since Triton V2 and they've made a positive impact ever since. I have 2 Sigma CGC's coming soon hopefully. I thought the Sigma V2 CGC was getting the TAP device but it seems it was scrapped?

    Nice. I wondered what my Everest looked like inside. My guess is the cylinder at bottom is for, or part, of the proprietary CGS grounding system.

    I may be wrong, and Caelin should jump in here, but I'm not sure a TAP device would be necessary or provide any function for a grounding cable because it does not carry signal, as an interconnect does.
