Shunyata power conditioner tested

Recommended Posts

An interesting test we just performed with our Shunyata AU-8 power conditioner! Remember not all power conditioners are equal, and some we have tested actually doubled the distortion on the mains! This is why we use and recommend Shunyata.

What cable is being used? Is that one of the newer NR products?

It's not the cable here that's making the difference, it's the power conditioner.

If it's the NR cables with built-in filters in the IEC connectors, then it's also helping here...

Fair enough, and you're right, it looks like this guy in the picture:

Understood.  I thought that you may have been talking about a person

D is right, the cable is helping here as well. I'm going to make a link cable so I can measure the noise reduction of the actual cables.

 

The entire Shunyata power cable range have NR (noise-reduction) built in (except the narrow-fit versions of them). So even if you already have a power conditioner you are happy with, a Shunyata feed cable could also be a consideration. 

 

"The Delta NR in Shunyata Research’s NR Series power cables incorporates ‘on-board CCI™ filters’ that provide power conditioning to each individual component." https://shunyata.com/products/power-cables/nr-series-power-cables/delta-nr/

Regardless, that’s an extremely noisily power supply to start with, I’ve used one of those meters, never seen it max out like that.

I agree. But don't forget this is in our shop, a commercial premises. It's not nearly as bad at home :)

Do you have an isotek conditioner there for comparison?

Rather than having to make something up a simpler test might simply be to swap out the Shunyata for a kettle cord into the conditioner then the difference in measurement should be the Shunyata's contribution.

 

Then if you want you can then cut up the kettle cord... :ohmy: and show the punters exactly what's in or rather how little is in a kettle cord !! :D 

 

How do you find the Shunyata Conditioner when used with power amps?

I know some conditioners and regenerators result in a loss of dynamics.

What would be your recommendation here?
