SUPERCHARGE YOUR POWER

Shunyata Research has optimized every part and technology that goes into the Typhon T2 with a single-minded approach to optimal performance. An obvious case in point are the two models of umbilical cables ideally suited for high-current transfer. The umbilical connection on the Typhon T2 is a one-of-a-kind, custom manufactured military grade twist-lock. This was chosen for its superior connection integrity, insuring maximum current transfer and the ultimate in performance. There are two distinct models of umbilical cable options. The Performance model umbilical, featuring 8 gauge VTX conductors, allows the Typhon T2 to dramatically impact every area of performance. All of Shunyata Research’s early testing was completed using this Performance umbilical. For more extreme applications, such as ultra high-current amps or for massive systems, the 8 gauge VTX-Ag Reference model will match up well with systems using Shunyata Research’s top Sigma or Omega model power cords. Either power umbilical when connected and used with the Typhon T2 will unleash a system’s full potential.

 


TECHNOLOGY

CopperCONN

Many audiophile grade connectors are made from brass or bronze. While some may get a plating of silver, gold or rhodium, the majority of the current is carried by the contact’s base-metal. ‌CopperCONN® connectors contain pure copper contacts which has a much higher conductivity that brass. The difference in performance is clearly audible.

VTX

Shunyata Research’s exclusive ‌VTX™ conductors are made in the shape of virtual tubes. The core of the conductor is completely hollow minimizing skin effects and random eddy currents. They are produced using OFE Alloy-101.

VTX-ag

Shunyata’s VTX-Ag cables are uniquely constructed with both an inner, center conductor made of pure silver and an outer concentric ring conductor made of pure copper. It’s made using the finest fluorocarbon insulation to minimize dielectric absorption and re-radiation which translates to an improvement in resolution and clarity. VTX-Ag delivers the speed and clarity of silver and the midrange warmth and three dimensional power in the lower octaves of copper without imparting any of the negatives associated with either metal. – The best qualities of silver and copper combined

ArNi

‌‌ArNi® is a type of wire created by Shunyata Research designed to be the finest quality wire available for audio purposes. It begins with the highest purity of copper available – OFE C10100 or Ohno (single crystal). Then it is formed in virtual hollow tubes eliminating skin effects and eddy current distortions. In addition, the wire undergoes our proprietary KPIP™ process.

2022 Fluorocarbon Dielectrics tech icon

Fluorocarbon dielectrics are usually only found in wire used in the aerospace industry, satellites and only the most expensive audiophile cabling. It has special electrical characteristics; very low dielectric absorption, high dielectric strength and exceptional heat resistance.  When used in audio and power cables is reduces the perception of dynamic compression and it improves sonic low-level resolution and clarity.

Crystal clear transient detail.
