Shunyata Hydra DPC-6 v3 Power Conditioner Isolates Your Digital Gear From Polluting Other Components, Requires No Burn-In Time: Reference Component Made for High-End Digital Media Systems
If you've invested in a high-quality, high-resolution digital system or spend considerable time listening to computer audio, the Shunyata Hydra DPC-6 v3 power conditioner is as necessary as the cables connecting your setup. Now updated and improved with the latest generation of Shunyata's CCI filter networks as well as SSF-50 feet for incredible, vibration-free stability, Hydra DPC-6 v3 is specifically designed to work with top-end digital media systems. Intended for use with computers, servers, monitors, routers, network devices, video processors, and disk arrays, Hydra DPC-6 v3 isolates such equipment and prevents it from polluting your power. This bellwether component drastically reduces digital hash and noise, while the MPDA filter found in Shunyata's other reference products comes standard. As does the trademarked CopperCONN outlet, which demonstrates remarkable boosts to dynamics, backgrounds, and tonalities. The reference-class Hydra DPC-6 v3 also benefits from Shunyata's groundbreaking Kinetic Phase Inversion Process (KPIP), a technique that eliminates any need for burn-in time. That's correct: Hydra DPC-6 v3 will operate at peak form right out of the box. Backed by Music Direct's famous Money-Back Guarantee.
“The product is beautifully built to provide an enhanced sonic experience for the computer audiophile. It provided a wake-up call for just how much degradation of my system’s sound quality the digital components were creating. Anyone that is accustomed to listening to a high quality analog rig will be turned off by the effects of digital noise on their systems. The overall sound of the system became more relaxed with the elimination of a subtle hardness to the quality of the sound. Everything became better defined from top to bottom.”
“Naturally, its application can extend to OLED TV, satellite receivers, or any digital entertainment device. I have yet to find any filter or power conditioner that comes close to the Hydra DPC-6’s specialized performance. Removing the Hydra DPC-6 from my system resulted in degraded sound quality and a less enjoyable sonic experience. I commend Shunyata Research for addressing a serious problem that has often been overlooked.”
Tailored for High-End Digital Media Systems
Shunyata's Hydra DPC-6 v3 is designed specifically to optimize the performance of digital media-server entertainment systems. Components such as digital servers, routers, disc-arrays, transports, computers and digital media centers output a significant amount of digital noise and often have cheap power supplies with poor filtration or noise barriers. DPC-6 v3 features a Shunyata-developed CCI filter networks that dramatically reduce the digital hash and noise commonly associated with digital media playback. Digital video components can also be used into the Hydra DPC-6 v3 with amazing results.
KPIP (Kinetic Phase Inversion Process) Eliminates Need for Burn-In Time
Shunyata founder Caelin Gabriel developed KPIP after years of research into the underlying causes of various effects such as burn-in, wire directionality, and cryogentic treatment. He discovered an underlying core principle that burn-in and cryogenics only partially addressed. Once the governing principle was understood, it became possible to create a processing technique and machine that could virtually eliminate the need for burn-in and cryogenic treatment.
Shunyata Digital Coil (SDC) Isolates Noise Without Impacting Dynamics
SDC isolates high-frequency noise without significantly affecting the music's micro- and macro-dynamic range. The coil is unique in that it simultaneously provides common mode and differential mode noise reduction. It is a custom-wound, single-lay, air-core design made with Shunyata's exclusive CDA-101 12-gauge power wire.
VF-IV Filter Reduces Digital Noise Without Ringing
The latest incarnation of the VF filters made famous in the Hydra VRay, VF-IV is a capacitive array that reduces digital noise without the associated ringing that plagues other capacitive filter designs. Each AC duplex has a dedicated VF-IV filter to isolate each outlet from the others.
MPDA Filter and LED Fault Indicator
MPDA (multi-phase differential array) is a complex surface-mount circuit that significantly reduces power-line noise without the audible or visible side-effects normally associated with conventional capacitive and inductive approaches. DPC-6 v3 also includes an LED that indicates the condition of the surge circuitry.
