HYDRA DPC-6 is the first HYDRA 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 can output a significant amount of digital noise and often have cheap power supplies with poor filtration or noise barriers. The HYDRA DPC-6 electrically isolates (firewalls) these devices and prevents them from polluting the other audio components on the power line.

The following are a list of the DPC-6’s features:

Shunyata Digital Coil 
This coil was developed after years of research by Shunyata Research’s Caelin Gabriel. It 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 Research’s exclusive CDA-101 12 gauge power wire. The SDC isolates high frequency noise without significantly affecting the micro and macro dynamic range of the music.

VF-IV Filter
This is the latest incarnation of the VF filters that were made famous in the HYDRA VRay. It is a capacitive array that reduces digital noise without the associated ringing that plague other capacitive filter designs. Each AC duplex has a dedicated VF-IV filter to isolate each outlet from the others.

MPDA Filter
The 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.

SR-Z1 Outlets
Shunyata Research’s SR-Z1 Outlets, are built by Hubbell to Shunyata Research’s exacting specifications. These outlets have large internal contacts that provide superior contact integrity for power cords. Ferrous metals have been minimized with no carbon materials to optimize AC performance. 

 The body of the outlet is oversized providing improved internal cooling capacity when under heavy current loads. All SR-Z1 outlets undergo Shunyata’s proprietary Alpha Cryogenic Process. The SR-Z1 outlets provide a critical contribution toward the award-winning performance of Shunyata’s power-distribution products.

L.E.D. Fault Indicator
Includes an L.E.D that indicates the condition of the surge circuitry.
