    I have not tried that with the new Typhon QR. However, with the original Typhon some people would use multiple units on a single Triton or on a single power circuit. We tested up to 5 units before the improvement became negligible. Typhon's also have a very nice improvement for video. So many people are plugging them into their home theater systems.

    Grounding cables are available in Delta, Alpha and Sigma levels if memory serves; I'm using Delta-level grounding cables with the TRITON v3
    and the results are amazing. I'm contemplating trying an Alpha or Sigma cable (1) as a test as I've heard the results are demonstrably better!

    The TRITON v3 is without a doubt the best power conditioner ever in my system and to my ears, all I'd hoped for in such a device be it
    passive or any of the other active or hybrid (i.e. battery-based) that I've used over the years which is a very long list from some big names.

    In short, the TRITON v3 is here to stay! The combination of a grounding plane in the TRITON v3 is the ultimate (for me) frosting on the cake
    as they say,....I will post a more detailed review about the last few months of listening with this great pc.

    As for the TYPHON QR (new) with new umbilical....thanks to a friend I've had the great opportunity to start testing one of these as of a week
    ago in conjunction with the TRITON v3. It's effects on the overall musical playback experience are absolutely PERVASIVE; it affects every single
    aspect of the experience and I'm stunned at what it does. As I'm only a week in, I'll leave it at that for now until I can form some more detailed
    feedback and write a review. Suffice it to say that I liken it to the effects of adding a SOTA masterclock to a fine system,...it affects every aspect
    of playback and reveals details and nuances over and above the fine playback experience already there; the only way to truly appreciate its overall
    impact (like a great masterclock) is to then remove it from the system and hear what is no longer there as a result.

    The TRITON + TYPHON QR 'stack' is a fantastic combination thus far...more detailed impressions to come!

    Yes. This is what I am looking for. I am on the fence about the QR since the original Typhon only made, at best, a subtle improvement with the Triton. So, I am a little hesitant about spending $9K for an unknown effect. I am fortunate that PG&E has a pole in my backyard, and they put a new transformer on it. Just for me.

    Add in my new 200 amp panel and dedicated lines for the stereo, I have pretty good power to start. So, based on the Typhon v1, there isn’t much for the QR to clean up. I think.

    You should be able to get a unit to demo. I never spend that kid of cash without listening to it in my system first.

    Can the Typhon QR be used with other Power Distributor as a pre filter?

    A couple of months in myself and also have a good friend with a TRITON v3 who just got his Typhon updated to the latest model build and QR designation.
    He's been texting me and calling every couple of days regaling me with stories of how blown away he is by the difference the Typhon QR makes; we both
    have good power into the homes and have very different systems overall however we are both stunned by what the Typhon QR has done from day 1
    and beyond....things just "SOUND LIKE MUSIC!!!"
