The Ultimate High Current Distributor


The TYPHON T30 is the ultimate high-current, performance oriented power distributor in Shunyata Research’s lineup. The TYPHON T30 is a hot-rodded version of the acclaimed TYPHON T2 and is specifically designed to improve the performance of the world’s most powerful amplifiers. The T30 measurably reduces power line noise while dramatically enhancing amplifier power delivery and dynamic range. 


It’s All In The Connection
What differentiates the TYPHON T30 from the TYPHON T2 is its 30-amp capability. Shunyata Research collaborated with military connector manufacturer, Amphenol, to create 30-amp, twist lock connectors specifically for use in the TYPHON T30.  The quality and current carrying capacity of these connectors is unparalleled. Their performance nearly matches that of a hard-wired electrical connection, reducing the contact impedance that could otherwise affect peak-current transfer.

To extract the performance potential from the T30, a 30-amp AC line and connector are desirable. However, a standard 15-amp or 20-amp electrical line may be used. (Which naturally limits the maximum continuous current potential of the T30 to the power rating of the circuit.)


Dramatic Performance In All Areas
The TYPHON T30 supercharges the performance of high-current amplifiers or other power hungry components. The more demanding the current draw, the greater the difference TYPHON T30 makes in perceived slam, dynamics and the sheer visceral sense of raw power. 

Flexible Application Capability
The TYPHON T30 can also be used as a stand-alone, three-component power distributor. Two standard outlets, on the back of the T30, can power two source components or a preamplifier while the proprietary Amphenol outlet provides high-current power to an amplifier. Like the TYPHON T2, the TYPHON T30 can be used to enhance the performance of any Shunyata power distributor.  (except the Everest)

Proven In High Demand Professional Applications
The TYPHON T30 power distributor is the ultimate high-current, performance oriented product within Shunyata Research’s legendary range of power distributors. The TYPHON T30 has also been used in some of the world’s finest recording studios, powering massive recording consoles, powered monitors and high-current amplifiers. There are few products that are capable of matching the performance delivery of  the TYPHON T30 for use in high-performance audio systems and professional recording studios. 

Proprietary Power Cables
The proprietary Amphenol inlet connector and outlet connector require power cables that are specifically built for this application.
Refer to the T30 Power Cables page for more information.

Below are common recommended applications of the Typhon T30


DTCD logo


DTCD™ Analysis is a technique that measures instantaneous current through low impedance electrical conductors and contacts.  Shunyata Research uses it to optimize the design, specification and construction of parts and materials to ensure maximum current delivery performance.  Each part, conductor, noise circuit and material allows for maximum throughput of instantaneous current.

Listeners will experience earth-shaking low-frequency performance from even the highest-current amplifiers as well as dynamic contrasts unheard of outside of a live event.  More than any other design parameter, Shunyata Research’s skill in eliminating resistance and maximizing peak-current delivery is unmatched.



The QR/BB™ module possesses the ability to act as an electric charge reservoir, meaning it stores and releases energy in a manner that improves a component’s access to instantaneous current.

Dynamics are actually improved reducing any sense of dynamic strain often heard from amplifiers that are connected with lesser power cables.

The sonic result is a lifelike presentation of timing and dynamic contrasts in sound that cannot be replicated by ANY other means.  In layman’s terms, it acts like a super-charger for amplifiers, pre-amps, DACs and CD players.

Traditional power conditioners are designed to block incoming noise from outside the home, but do not address the noise that is generated by the electronic components themselves. In fact, most conditioners reflect noise back into other components connected to the power conditioner. CCI™ (Component-to-Component Isolation) is one of the most significant but often overlooked aspects to power system performance. The CCI™ filter consists of a proprietary multi-stage filter that reduces electrical noise and interference generated by a component’s power supply.



The NIC™ (Noise Isolation Chamber) is a patented technology that reduces high frequency power line noise.

NICs™ use a non-reactive ferroelectric substance that actually absorbs high frequency noise.  This reduces noise without any of the negatives associated with power filter coils, capacitors and transformers.

KPIP Blackbird Processor


Shunyata Research’s proprietary Kinetic Phase Inversion Process includes four days of continuous KPIP™ processing to dramatically reduce burn-in time and significantly improve sonic performance, delivering a relaxed and life-like presentation.

One of our fundamental design imperatives is to ensure life-long performance and durability. Long-term exposure to air can oxidize and corrode wiring and sensitive electronic components. All of the filters, PCBs, connections and internal wiring are contained within a monolithic enclosure and then potted with ceramic materials that hermetically seal the contents. This protects the circuits and wiring from humidity and oxidation, and eliminates internal vibration between components. This unique construction methodology delivers exceptional and consistent performance that will not degrade over time.


ArNi® Conductors

Shunyata Research’s  ArNi® conductors are designed to be the finest quality wire available for power and audio purposes. They start life using the highest purity copper available – OFE C10100 (or Ohno single crystal). Then they are formed into “virtual hollow tubes” that we call VTX™.  The core of the conductor is completely hollow forcing the current to only travel through the periphery of the conductor, therby eliminating skin effects and random eddy currents.

And finally, every ArNi® wire undergoes our proprietary KPIP™ process.


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 have a much higher conductivity than brass. The difference in performance is clearly audible.


The ‌CGS (‌‌Chassis Grounding System) is an internal ground-buss that uses patented NIC™ technology to reduce ground plane noise. ‌‌CGS provides a common grounding point and extends the noise reduction capability of the power conditioner’s internal NICs to other electronic components. ‌‌CGS helps to minimize inter-component voltage differences between component chassis and may reduce the hum associated with ground loops.
