PS8 Bundle

Hi Richard,

It's now been about three weeks since I got my PS8 bundle. It's been a great addition to my system. You can now add me to the list of people that believe power cables can, and do make a difference.

The amount of improvement/clarity to my system make this a bargain given how much I paid for this bundle. There's no doubt that the next thing I buy for my system will be three more venom cables!

Regards,

PS8: I am a Believer Now

I recently purchased your PS8 with Defender power distribution and conditioning system and it has made such a positive difference in my system that I am thinking about upgrading all of my power cords and interconnects to Shunyata products. I have the following products: a Bryston B100 integrated amplifier, a Simaudio NEO 430HA headphone amplifier, a Simaudio NEO 380D DSD DAC. In your experience what will likely make the most difference in my system replacing the stock power cords or replacing the interconnects? In other words, do you have any advice on what I should start with first?

Also, I just want to say that prior to acquiring the PS8 system, you certainly could have described me as a skeptic as far as power conditioning systems are concerned, but I must say that I am a believer now. Also, just so you are aware, I received great service from Andrew Gilbert of Audio Ark in Edmonton, Alberta throughout this purchase. I had indicated to him that I had tried a Torus Power unit in my system and returned it as I did not feel it made a difference. However, Andrew suggested that I try the PS8 system and he said I would not be disappointed and he was definitely correct.

Thank you for making such a great product at a very fair price considering the performance boost it gave to my system.

Thanks,

The Fifth Element #82

Replacing a GE power strip bought at a hardware store and a mélange of IEC power cords, I installed the VENOM PS8, its spikes, the VENOM DEFENDER, the PS8's 20-amp power cord, and VENOM HC power cords for: the Parasound Halo CD 1 (used as a transport), the Bricasti M1 DAC, and the Lindell AMPX power amp. Following about 48 hours of break-in, serious listening revealed no negatives, and the rather obvious positives of a lower noise floor and a more easeful sound.

So it was very gratifying when a listening chum who hadn't visited in a while -- a serious DIY loudspeaker designer-builder -- spontaneously and rather wonderingly commented on the dynamic freedom he was hearing from a 20W amplifier: the Lindell AMPX. I hastened to point out that the total cost of the power-delivery products was twice that of the amp, which we both agreed provided food for thought.

I think Shunyata Research's VENOM Power System is a solidly safe recommendation -- even more important, all Shunyata dealers offer a money-back guarantee. Highly recommended. (The Fifth Element #82)

The truth has been revealed...

Dear fellow audiophiles,

After over a month of having the VENOM PS8, ALPHA HC 20 amp, ALPHA HC 15 amp and VENOM HC in my system, I am compelled to share some of my thoughts and observations. Without question, these components have raised my humble system to a level that I never thought possible. I will avoid the usual audiophile speak in describing my listening experience as these terms are so over used and subjective. Your cables and power components have by far had the greatest impact on my system. In a world of so much hype, your products are true and honest and allow an audio system to blossom. I now hear details like I have never heard before. I thought I knew what my system sounded like until I added Shunyata products. Up to this point I was hearing a lie, but now the truth has been revealed. In this regard I would highly recommend any Shunyata product to anyone that is serious about their audio system. Thank you for creating such wonderful products.

Respectfully,

Darrell M. Chappelle

Venom PS8 Power Distributor with Venom Defender Line Conditioner

In 1996, a physics professor at New York University named Alan Sokal sent an article manuscript to an academic journal called Social Text, a self-styled journal of “postmodern cultural studies.” The essay was a work of fiction, filled with utter nonsense, but also replete with the catchwords du jour, which is to say jargon incomprehensible to anyone outside the cloistered confines of the university. The very title speaks volumes: “Transgressing the Boundaries: Towards a Transformative Hermeneutics of Quantum Gravity.” The article was published, clearing ‘peer review.’ After publication, Sokal revealed the article to be a hoax. His point was made: a great deal of academic writing is gibberish masquerading as science. Sound familiar to audiophiles?

Today there are hundreds of rich people in the rich world laughing all the way to the bank as they separate people with more money than sense from their money. The process is, I don’t know… somewhat magical. Six hundred thousand dollar speakers? Check. One hundred thousand dollar interconnects? If you’ve got the money, those can be purchased too.
