Overbuilt to Deliver up to 20Amps of Continuous Power and Serve as the Heart of Your System: Shunyata Venom PS8 Power Distribution Strip Loaded with Cutting-Edge Technology
This Affordable Power Distribution Strip Will Change How You Hear Music: U.S.A.-Made Shunyata Venom PS8 Won 2014 Golden Ear Award From The Absolute Sound
The Shunyata Venom PS8 power distribution strip will revolutionize the way you hear music. At this price, PS8 stands to bring outstanding power distribution to thousands of listeners that previously couldn't afford prior Shunyata products and refused to compromise with competitors' lesser-made models. In terms of looks, quality, value, and performance, PS8 outclasses every other under-$2k product in its class. It uses the same SR-Z1 outlets, ZPDS buss-bar system, and 20-Amp IEC as Shunyata's benchmark-setting Hydra Triton power conditioner. That's right: Reference-level technology, premium materials, and Shunyata's renowned performance for a very affordable price. And 100% Money-Back Guaranteed.
"The eminently affordable Venom Series power products from Shunyata blindsided me...they clarified and fine-tuned timber and character, and released hidden musicality from my system. Bravo for designing a system that acknowledges the fact that not everyone has the cash, space, or inclination to run dedicated lines...take note: You'll never look at power strips and AC power in the quite the same way again!"
– Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, 2014 Golden Ear Award
Reference-Level Technology and Features at Unheard-Of Price Point
The US-made Venom PS8 is loaded. Featuring eight outlets, dual 12-gauge Cyrogenic conductors, a C-19 IEC inlet, Carling Hydraulic Electromagnetic Breaker, massive all-steel construction, and brushed stainless-steel appearance, it boasts a powerful 20-Amp continuous rating and unlimited instantaneous current capability. It grants high-power amps and power-hungry video systems their required current headroom. Such characteristics are unheard-of at this price point.
Venom PS8 is First Thing Your Components Will See: Up to 20Amps of Continuous Power
Outside of room acoustics, there's no more important chain in a system than power. PS8 is the ideal low-impedance pathway for power to get to components. Your gear lives and breathes on current. PS8 should be seen as the brains of your audio system, delivering up to 20Amps of continuous power. PS8 is the first element of the power chain your components will see. True to its unique philosophy and unsurpassed electrical knowledge, Shunyata built PS8 to un-complicate instantaneous current delivery. Designed for use with other Venom Series products such as Shunyata's Venom Defender and Venom Power cords, Venom PS8 represents the cornerstone of a great power delivery system.
"In fact, every recording, good or bad, was similarly improved in terms of soundstaging, dimensionality, and high-frequency refinement – with absolutely no downside whatsoever. Can you really ask for more?"
– Doug Schneider, SoundStage! Global
Made for Power-System Expansion, Audiophile Systems, and Home Theaters
Developed using Shunyata's DTCD Analysis tool, PS8 is
designed for three different applications: Home-theater systems
(particularly those with multiple amplifiers), existing reference-grade
power-system expansion (here are the extra outlets for your existing
power conditioners), and purist audiophile setups (power distribution
without surge protection or noise filtration). Its superior contacts and
outlets--combined with a breaker that provides lower noise and
exceptional high-current performance--mean your components will perform
at maximum levels when plugged into this wonderfully narrow device.
Scalable Performance Adds to Flexibility, Versatility, Performance
Want more flexibility and versatility? Take PS8 to even greater lengths by adding the optional Venom Defender, a plug-in version of the MPDA 30-Element power conditioning used in Shunyata's Reference Triton Power Conditioner. Defender is a modular upgrade to the PS8, a power strip, or even a wall outlet. In addition, Shunyata's optional SSF (stainless-steel feet) from the Hydra line improve vibration control and solidifies overall performance. Although the PS8 does not come with a power cord, Shunyata offers a wide variety of 20A terminated power cords to suit any budget or performance requirement.
Power Cable Not Included
All Shunyata power conditioners and strips require a 20Amp cable, not included with this component. Shunyata does not include a power
cable with products because the company believes that so-called "stock"
cables greatly impair the performance of their units and that including
one would be the same as endorsing its use. We carry a broad selection of 20Amp power cables, or a generic 20Amp cable can be provided upon request for a modest fee.
