I’ve just spent a very informative morning listening to our reference system. I have to say that the results with the HYDRA are extremely interesting. Everything has become clearer with greater projection, but at the same time smoother. Stage depth is also greatly improved, something which I was not expecting as this is normally dominated by mechanical/acoustical constraints. Very impressive. Last night I had similarly impressive results at home with my Barco. Noise is dramatically reduced and the image is now far more punchy and better defined, Being an engineer I tend to be a little skeptical when it comes to cables etc, so this was a very pleasant surprise. I’m so impressed with the results that I would like to order your HYDRA MODEL-8 straight away for my own use which will feed my whole HT ensemble.

They (ANACONDA Signal Cables) compete with, and in many ways exceed, the performance of the world’s best cables regardless of price. Reference-quality cables at a real-world price.
The Absolute Sound
These reasonably priced cables earn their place in a high-priced system.

I could not recommend Shunyata Research products highly enough.

We now use the HYDRAs on our Model 2 converters, AES router and main monitor system consisting of B W 802 speakers and Chord Amps.
With digital sources it was almost as if we had switched from 44.1k/16 bit to 96k/24 bit. We now run all our analogue machines, workstations and the mixing console from the Shunyata equipment.
