The HYDRA TRITON v3 represents a major performance advancement from the TRITON v2. It includes several technological advancements including the patent-pending QR/BB™ technology introduced in our DENALI Series. New CCI™ v3 Filters also improve component-to-component noise isolation performance.
MADE IN USA
NOTE: The Triton requires a power cord with a 20a C19 connector which is not included with the product.
The TRITON v3 was designed using the DTCD™ measurement analyzer. DTCD™ Analysis is a technique that measures instantaneous current through low impedance electrical conductors and contacts. We use it to optimize the design, specification and construction of parts and materials to ensure maximum current delivery performance.
CCI™ Noise Reduction
Traditional power conditioners are designed to block noise coming in from outside the home but do not address the noise that is generated by the electronic component’s themselves. In fact,most conditioners reflect noise back into other components connected to the power conditioner. CCI™ (Component-to-Component Interference) is one of the most significant but often overlooked aspects to power system performance. The Shunyata Research designed CCI™ filter consists of a proprietary multi-stage filter that reduces RFI and power supply generated interference.
NIC™ Noise Reduction
NIC™ (Noise Isolation Chamber) is a patented technology that reduces high frequency power line noise. NICs™ use a non-reactive ferroelectric substance that actually absorbs high frequency noise. This allows HYDRA power distributors to reduce noise without any of the negatives associated with conventional power conditioner designs.

All commercial grade connectors and virtually all audiophile grade connectors are made from a brass or bronze base metals. Some audiophile grade connectors may get a plating of nickel, silver, gold or rhodium that is only a few millionths of an inch thick. The Shunyata Research CopperCONN™ is constructed using solid, high purity, oxygen free copper as the base metal with a flash coating to protect the copper from oxidation.
The CopperCONN™ outlets and connectors are designed to provide superior grip strength and contact integrity. This contributes to a measurable improvement in DTCD™ (Dynamic Transient Current Delivery) performance and a correspondingly obvious difference in audible performance.
ZPP-DS Distribution Buss
The ZPP-DS significantly reduces the daisy-chained wires, terminal strips and terminal connectors found within common power conditioners. The power outlets, electrical terminals and main electrical buss are all unified into a single OFC copper buss that dramatically improves DTCD™.
Shunyata Research’s exclusive VTX™ conductors are virtual tubes. The core of the conductor is completely hollow, electrically, so that all of the current travels through the circumference of the conductor eliminating skin effects and random eddy currents through the conductor. The VTX™ conductors are produced with CDA-101 copper which is the highest purity copper available.
Hydraulic Electromagnetic Breaker
Common power conditioners use fuses or thermal breakers for over current protection. The problem is that these devices cause voltage drops, increased contact impedance, thermal noise, excessive heat generation and current limiting effects when heavily loaded.
The TRITON v3 uses a more advanced solution called a hydraulic electromagnetic breaker that can operate right up to the maximum current level without the limitations of fuses or thermal breakers.
