Shunyata Venom PS8 Power Distribution Strip

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

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 $195 Venom Defender, a plug-in version of the MPDA 30-Element power conditioning used in Triton. Defender allows modular upgrades to PS8, a power strip, or even a wall outlet. In addition, Shunyata's optional SSF (stainless-steel feet) from Hydra line improves vibration control and overall performance. Also, PS8's power cable can be upgraded to a Zitron power cord for even better sound.

Features
  • Sets New Benchmark for Price-Performance Ratio
  • Uses Same Outlets, Buss-Bar System, and 20Amp IEC as Triton
  • 20-Amp Continuous Rating and Unlimited Instantaneous Current Capability
  • Narrow Design and Optional Defender Plug-In Provides Incredible Versatility
  • Eight Outlets (Hubbell's best with Shunyata Research Alpha Cryogenic Process)
  • Dual 12-gauge Cryogenic Conductors (CDA-101 OFC Copper)
  • Carling Hydraulic Electromagnetic Breaker (Lower noise and superior high current performance)
  • Massive all steel construction (will last a lifetime)
  • Stunning Brushed Stainless Steel Appearance
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.
