    Boy, are you in for a good time!...heheheh.

    Just don't place that bad boy directly on carpet. A nice maple or granite platform or an amp stand works a treat.

    Slightly bigger than my Denali V2...
    Looking forward hearing your initial impressions of the Everest vs Denali V2

    Congratulations! First impressions: incredible PRAT. I want to wait a week before doing more critical listening. That will be two weeks on the Omega XC too. But so far, AWESOME!

    FWIW, Im running a fan though my Everest/Omega 24/7 when not playing music. What has impressed me so far over my Denali v2:+ Typhon QR + Sigma v1, is the dynamics and “perceived improved” timbre with the Everest + Omega XC with great recorded orchestral music.

    Yup...good insights. One of things I find with the Everest is that I can hear the nuances of different instrumental timbres so clearly with Everest. For example, the differences between two different makes of pianos or violins. There is also this ability to hear the smalliest details and notes from individual instruments against the "background" of a full orchestra going hell bent for leather.

    I'm connecting my amp to mine, Jim. Love it. But, I use a tube amp.

    If I had monos in a rack, I'd use the "pairs of isolated outlets" either Zone 1 or Zone 6, but most likely the outlets at Zone 6 since they are at the bottom of Everest.

    Amps in particular really benefit from the QR/BB device in Everest (or Denali or Typhon QR).

    I’m a believer in amps to the wall. I’ve heard all the blah blah blah, but for me, amps to the wall sounds more dynamic. The only amps are like into a conditioner are tube amps, especially tube amps. Plus, my amps take four power cables! They need ‘da juice!

    I was guessing that your amps weren't plugged into the Everest based on Caelin's response to me #21 in the "Shunyata Research Announces Everest" thread. That is pretty impressive from your initial response of PRAT with just your front end connected. Looking for more comments.

    whether to plug the amp(s) into the Everest has more to do with the number of power circuits that you have available.

    if you only have one power circuit available for the audio system, plug them into the Everest. If you have two (or more) dedicated lines, then plug the Everest and source equipment into one line and use the other line for the amp(s).

    if you use very high power amplifiers (above 200 watts per channel) you should install a second dedicated line for best performance. For these type amplifiers use an Alpha, Sigma or Omega NR power cord direct to the wall or with the Typhon QR.

    Cailin, I am using a Devialet D250 Expert Pro connected to a Denali V2 using Sigma XC from the wall socket and Sigma NR V2 from the Denali to the amp - would I benfit from exchanging my Denali to a Everest in your opinion?

    Re: Unpacking the Shunyata Everest 8000

    The Everest can accept input from a power circuit rated for 30 amps of current so it is more than capable of handling all of you equipment, including amplifiers.

    And to those with opinions based on other power conditioners - I would ask that you suspend judgement and try the Everest - even with your amplifiers. And don’t judge the Everest based upon your experience with anything other than a Sigma XC or Omega XC power cord.

    If you feel that strongly that any other PCs are "illegitimate" for lack of a better word with the Everest, why isn't a Sigma XC included with the Everest (with Omega XC as an upgrade option)?

    just wanted to ask what about an omega-everest bundle....

    the other question: if we use the amp on the everest, should it be plugged into nr.1 / nr.6 or into the other zone?

    i plug amps into zone 6. Isolation between amps is less important than isolation between source equipment especially digital devices.

    Probably because some (or perhaps many) folks already own a Sigma XC or Omega XC for their current PDs?

    Just a side note: a Sigma XC lets a Denali V2 function to its full potential, also. Highly recommended for Denali V2. 👍

    The Everest represents our ultimate expression for a power conditioning component. If you want good enough, choose one of our lower level conditioners. If you want the best, you should match it with the cords that allow it to deliver its full potential.

    Why not package it with a dedicated cord. Because our dealer base and customers would complain bitterly and then want to know what it would cost if we did a power delete option. Other reasons below.


    1) The Everest was designed using the Sigma and Omega power cords. I don’t know of any power that can match their capability when used with the Everest.

    2) Many people have prior versions of our power cords and will want to use them for monetary reasons. Of course they will work just fine but they will not experience the full potential of the Everest. Perhaps they can upgrade the cords at a later date.

    3) Some people have other very expensive power cables that they may want to try or to use. I have no control over what they do. I can only make recommendations based upon what I know.

    JMO and YMMV and all the qualifiers.

    Shunyata can't have it both ways - either (1) only Sigma XC/Omega XC work "properly" with the Everest - in which case one of those PCs should be included with Everest (and the Everest retail of $8k is very misleading) or (2) no power cable is included with Everest which means that a comparison using a power cable other than the Sigma XC/Omega XC is valid to evaluate the performance of the Everest.

    Thanks. Where I was having an issue was with the comment that the Everest cannot be properly evaluated without a specific cable - that was a statement I've never seen from Shunyata before. It sounds like rather than that, what Shunyata is saying is that it recommends a particular cable with Everest that it feels provides the best performance - which is fine. However, not using that cable does not mean that a consumer's comments about Everest are not valid.

    Sounds like you are trying to pick a fight?

    They are just my opinions and suggestions. You can accept or reject them as you wish.

    And I never used your quotation words, “illegitimate” or “properly”. So maybe you are reading something into my statements that aren’t there. If you reread what I said, I was quite precise in what I actually did say in spite of how you re-interpreted it.

    Not at all. As you saw in my response, I was looking for clarity in respect of your earlier comment:

    "And don’t judge the Everest based upon your experience with anything other than a Sigma XC or Omega XC power cord."

    That statement on its face is consistent with my comments; I'm not sure why you're getting upset with me or claiming that I'm twisting your words.

    Re: Unpacking the Shunyata Everest 8000

    hey bar81, no need for overly sharp perspectives.
    i think it is very very cool for us here to answer&question with a manufactor directly.

  28. #28

    Re: Unpacking the Shunyata Everest 8000

    The only reason I raised this is that I am evaluating an Everest shortly for purchase and I was caught off guard by that comment as I have no intention of evaluating the Everest (at least at this time) if I need to spend another $3,500+ on a PC as part of the evaluation. Once Caelin responded, I understood that the comment was not intended as written and I expected that that would be it until I was accused of being nasty which was not my intent (although it appears that I am too "direct" for some people's liking as Mike has similarly taken another of my comments to be nasty when it was not intended as such). To me, the value of having manufacturers on the forum is in large part their knowledge and singular expertise in respect of their products (which Caelin has demonstrated many times and which has helped me in purchasing many Shunyata products) - so when a manufacturer make a statement about their product, it carries a lot of weight with me and I want to make sure I understand it.

    I'll show myself out now since it seems I'm no longer welcome.

    Re: Unpacking the Shunyata Everest 8000

    I’ve had my Everest + Omega XC since Wednesday which replaced my Denali 6000S v2 + Typhon QR + Sigma v1, and all that I can say is that I am a bit spellbound with the improvement even though the Denali is excellent. My monoblock amps remain on their own dedicated 20 AC lines plugged directly into the wall outlets with all my other gear plugged into the Everest on my other dedicated AC line.

    As I have written before, I am planing on trying the Typhon with my Everest once the Sigma v2 umbilical arrives, but now that that I’ve heard the Everest + Omega as it breaks in, I’m wondering if it is even worth trying as the Everest + Omega is sooo sooo good; at least in my system. If by chance, the Typhon appears to enhance the Everest, then maybe an Omega umbilical might be more appropriate than the Sigma v2 umbilical although that will drive the price up even further??

    Caelin, do you have any thoughts about using a Typhon QR in conjunction with the Everest?

    Caelin, although listening is the only way to know, do you have any thoughts about using a Typhon QR in conjunction with the Everest as the Typhon was specifically made for the now discontinued Triton?

    Well, since you have it, it is worth trying. Since you have a separate dedicated line for the amps the Typhon QR would be best used with amps. You can plug it in parallel to the amps instead of in series.

    Personally, I prefer the Everest a cappella. No seasonings.

    I don't think it would be worth the hassle...IMHO, simpler is better. Kinda like the old Linn-Sondek mantra.

    But I agree, that as good as Denali is...Everest is quite amazing.

    Caelin, Thank you for your reply and your thoughts. Yeah, after experiencing the Everest/Omega XC, I don’t think that I want to mess with something that sounds so good, although I guess that I don’t have anything to loose by trying my Typhon with it just for fun.

    I would certainly go with your recommendation to try the Typhon with my amps, but since they are mono-blocks, I would need another Typhon for the second amp.

    I do have a separate dedicated home theater room which has a Triton V3 powering the audio end in there. I don’t have any room in my rack for the Typhon, but I’m somehow going to try to stuff it behind the rack. If I can manage to find enough room behind the rack, that might be the best place for it.

    Thanks for your input. That’s my thoughts too. To try the Typhon in my stereo, I would have to power everything down including my music server and then move power cords around in a “tight” spot behind my audio rack. The “KISS” (Keep It Simple Stupid) theory comes to mind here.

    As to the Everest, Awesome comes to mind. Also finesse!

    Hi Caelin, one quick question: What do you mean by “plug it in parallel to the amps instead of series?” I only have one duplex for the my amps, so I don’t see how a single Denali would work in that application? Thanks.

    I suspect he means plug the amp into one socket, and the Typhon into the other socket. If you have two amps plugged into one socket then you can't run the Typhon like that. The Denali and Typhon are two different pieces of gear.

    You would need a quad-plex outlet to do it.
    or two TQRs, one for each amp and all the corresponding power cords required.
    so this is an awesome setup but you have 2 large heavy chassis and multiple power cords that need to be exceptional.

    Pretty much this is exactly why I created the Omega QR.
    one cord to wall. Has a QR/BB in it and NR noise reduction.

    Indeed, the Omega QRs are on my short list to audition with my amps. Bet they would sound amazing with them, but I “gotta” save my lunch money first as these aren’t inexpensive.

    Re: Unpacking the Shunyata Everest 8000

    Hi Caelin-
    Quick question for you. Sorry to deviate on the Everest thread. I just purchased a Denali v2 from Suncoast and some alpha NRv2 and sigma NRv2. I will be running a Sigma Analog between the wall and the Denali, and a Sigma NR v2 and 2x Alpha NRv2s from the Denali to my amp, pre, and DAC.

    Moving forward, which would be a more beneficial use of funds? Selling the Sigma Analog and upgrading to the 20amp Sigma XC, or buying another Alpha NRv2 for one of my other components (dcs Rossini clock, external crossover, or CD transport all of which are currently using Transparent powerlink mm2 power cords).
    Thanks in advance and congrats on the Everest 8000. It looks amazing.

    upgrade the cable from the wall to the Denali

    You have a nice dCS system. Your profile doesn’t mention what you are using for digital cables. Those are most likely the weakest link in your cabling system.

    Would that finding be system dependent? Why I ask is, my system sounds no different with Denali v1 than without. Whether to upgrade to Denali v2 or Everest would be a leap of faith given Denali v1 didn't bring anything noticeable to the party.

    Compared to what?

    I am going to assume that you are engaging in a bit of hyperbole when you say “no” difference. Every power distributor and power cord has a sound that is different. So there must be a reason you can’t hear differences. When people have said this in the past it usually is caused by one of the following.

    1) Poor speaker setup and or no acoustic treatment. The poor acoustics obscure timing and imaging to such a degree that it is difficult to discern equipment changes. I have seen some of your posts about things you hear so I don’t know about this as a cause. Only you would know.

    2) The person is not sensitive to power equipment changes. Some people are very good at hearing differences in frequency response as with speakers but are insensitive to noise or transient response. Power conditioners and power cords primarily affect uncorrelated noise and transient response.

    3) A specific power component does not function in isolation to the other power components in the system. Each component affects the performance of the other components in the system even components that are in parallel to one another. You don’t mention what power cord you are using to feed the Denali. That is critical to the overall performance of the Denali. A power cord of insufficient gauge or one that has high levels of inductance will inhibit DTCD. This is like installing a highly restrictive intake on a high performance engine. It chokes the air supply of the engine and in the case of the Denali (entire system really) it chokes off instantaneous current.

    4) The Denali has been placed on a carpet. Power conditioners sound dull and muffled when placed on a carpet. Put it on a proper shelf or if a tower version put a plank of granite, hard wood or amp stand below it.

    RE: Denali v1 versus Denali v2
    Yes differences in performance is quite large between the two generations.

    I hope this helps,

    No hyperbole. I try Sigma Clock-50, noticeable improvement over the Mexcel 7N-DA6100. I try Sigma AES-EBU, noticeable improvement over a Mogami digital. I try a Denali v1, I just don't hear it, better or worse. The Denali v1 is on a solid surface, connected to the wall with a PS Audio AC-10.

    Just curious, if you remove the Denali v1, what do you plug the components into?

    Having owned some of PS Audio AC-10 and AC-12, I suggest that cable is seriously restricting performance whatever you plug into it.
