It sounds like you've already taken this path (from v2 to v3)?

Yes. I also tried a Denali, which was better than the v2, but the Triton v3 was better still. I'm expecting one of the new Typhon QR's to be delivered any day to go with the v3 (in for a penny, in for a pound). I'll post my impressions of that after I've had a chance to listen to the combo for a while.

Let us know how you get on with the Typhon. Right now, I'm hoping I'm going to be allowed by Shunyata to do the upgrade to the v3, until then the Typhon option is a distant dream...

I've never tried the Isotek products -- they're not very common here in the U.S. I also haven't tried any of the latest PS Audio gear, although I did audition several of the older Power Plant models. My reaction to them was the same as my reaction to pretty much every active isolation device I tried -- the noise floor dropped, but the music seemed less dynamic and a little harmonically thin.

My friend with the Audioquest Niagara 7000 swears it doesn't have those faults. I've never auditioned one in my home, but the reviews have all been glowing, so he may be right. I like the fact that the Shunyata products are passive because that means absolutely no buzz or hum, and there were also some earlier posts on this forum explaining how a failure of an active isolation device could damage DSP speakers by defeating their internal protection circuits (I'm not an engineer, so I couldn't tell you one way or the other).

Funny you should ask. I used to have my video system plugged into a Sound Application Reference Line Stage (another well-regarded passive unit/surge protector from about ten years ago), but when I found I liked the Triton v3 better on my audio system than the Denali, I tried the Denali on the video system just for kicks and discovered the colors were noticeably more saturated. So, I sold the SA and kept the Denali for the video system.

I did not try the PS Audio Power Plants or the Equitech balanced line conditioners on my video system when I had them at my house.

Quick update to say I've just had my Triton v2 upgraded to a v3 smile

I can't say how good the improvements are just yet as my unit just arrived back, but Shunyata turned around the upgrade in under a week.

[I've actually been without the unit for three weeks as both DHL (on the outbound journey) and Fedex (on its way back) managed to lose track of the Triton, so a true comparison between the two will be dependent on my perceived differences with a gap between the two.]

Yes, I've had it for over a month. I just haven't gotten around to posting anything yet because my wife and I are moving out of our house for a major remodel and things have been very hectic. I'll try to write something next week.
