    I agree. Continued innovation and product development is the name of the name for any good, R&D-based, high-end audio company. This isn't unique to Shunyata. All good high-end audio companies work this way. Conrad-Johnson released a better-performing preamp, the GAT, that superceded and surpassed the performance of my CT-5. But it doesn't mean that my CT-5 was any less a great product and a great-sounding preamp. I lived with it and enjoyed it for over a decade. I sold it to someone who is now also enjoying it.

    Shunyata has been on a mission to bring their innovative and proprietary technologies into their products at lower price points, to be accessible to a wider segment of customers. For example, the Venom NR series of power cords released in 2019 brought their power cord noise reduction technology down to their entry-level line level of power cords that was previously unavailable, at a price approximately 1/2 that of the higher-spec Delta NR v1 series of PCs. Same for their interconnects. You can now buy the Alpha V2 interconnect with the proprietary TAP device in an interconnect that sounds better than the original Sigma v1 ICs, and...at half the price.

    Most high-end companies cascade their proprietary and cutting-edge tech upwards, reserved only for their highest level, top-price tier of products.

    Shunyata takes their innovative and proprietary technologies and cascades them downwards, to make them more available to a broader range of customers at lower price tiers. Who else does that? The only other companies I can think of are Lampizator and Rega. What's not to like?

    Re: Unpacking the Shunyata Everest 8000

    would like to confirm the downwards success.....recently i purchased a couple of delta2 nr powercords and find them not only excellent value but also no clear benefit to go any higher, apart for the PD, pre and dac.

    Yeah, the Delta NR v2 PC is a great power cord. And an excellent value. It's better than the the original Alpha NR v1 PC, at half the cost.

A 6-outlet of the same quality would be even better for price. Fitting into that shelf space would also preclude the need for longer power cords necessitated by going farther off-center with a conditioner. The style and size of the Everest leaves me scratching my head.
    i am scatching my head about how is it possible to not have place for an everest?
    it is not supposed to squeeze it into a rack...just place it somewhere on the floor alone. next or behind whatever.

    would a 6 outlet version of the same quality be cheaper?
    first, to offer multiple versions make things more expansive. more hassle, smaller quantity per unit. a 6 outlet version would make the 8 outlet version more expansive to a little degree.
    then, if you look inside the everest you will see that the cost comes from all the boxes inside.
    you would need all the same for the 6 outlet version. the 2 extra outlets cost marginal as well as the little bit more of aluminium for the higher hight.
    that said, i did wish a smaller version when i bought the everesrt. by now, i wish it had 10 or more outlets.

    A question to Puma or other Everest owners who might know...

    Are all 8 outlets on the Everest connected to the QR/BB modules?

    If I recall correctly, on my Denali 6000T only 2 of 6 of the outlets are connected to QR/BB.
