Many of the same premium parts and hand-craftsmanship that have earned the HYDRA Series products multiple awards and professional endorsements are also used in the PS8 — with the most significant difference being the PS8’s extraordinarily affordable price!
The PS8 is designed for a life-time of dependable service with from a chassis constructed of heavy gauge powder coated steel and a beautiful stainless steel top plate.
The VENOM PS8 has several applications including:
– Media Centers and Home Theaters
– Power System Expansion
– Purist Power Distribution
– Noise reduction and surge protection (optional VENOM DEFENDER)
Distributed Power Conditioning
Shunyata Research pioneered the concept of Distributed Power Conditioning to solve the problems associated with power line noise in complex home entertainment systems. Home entertainment systems can be very complex involving many components located in multiple locations. These systems may use several dedicated power lines making it almost impossible to effectively reduce power line noise with a single-box power conditioner solution. Shunyata Research solves this problem by intercepting noise at multiple locations in the entertainment system using a variety of products.
Shunyata power distributors supply power to multiple components while intercepting incoming power line RFI and EMI while also addressing CCI™ by reducing component-to-component interference. The use of DTCD™ Analysis has enabled Shunyata Research to develop multiple noise reduction technologies that do not compromise instantaneous current delivery.
NR Power Cables
Shunyata Research has developed several “noise reduction” power cables that measurably reduce power supply generated noise. The noise is intercepted by the power cord and dissipated before it has the opportunity to propagate throughout the power system.
The VENOM AMP-1 is a single outlet device that includes surge protection and noise reduction and was deigned specifically for mono-block amplifiers and video projectors. The VENOM DEFENDER is a unique “pocket power conditioner” that was designed for a remotely located single component. It plugs directly into the AC duplex eliminating the need for a conventional power conditioner and the associated power cabling. i.e. A SONOS™ single-box audio component supplying music to a den or bedroom.
