Shunyata Typhon QR incoming

For once, I am going to audition a piece of gear before I buy it. While I have the Typhon v1 in use with the Triton v3 power distributor, the $9K list price of the Typhon QR is a bit high for me to blindly upgrade. I asked my dealer if I could demo one, and Shunyata agreed, so it will be here Wednesday. I know what I will be doing Friday and Saturday night. If it works as expected then I will get it. Then I will send my Typhon v1 in for a QR upgrade, and add it to the HT Triton v3. Hopefully, this will be a win/win for both systems.

With the new Lumin X1 being released soon, this will be an expensive summer, but should take the stereo system up a notch. Plus I can then move the Lumin S1 into the HT, so that system will be getting used for music again. It’s been two years since I last used it for music.

This will free up a Bryston BDA-1 file player, and an Auralic Vega DAC. These will go up for sale at a good price. Contact me if you are interested.
