VENOM PS8

High-end home entertainment systems can be very complex and quite costly with components that cost thousands to tens of thousands. And yet the performance potential of the entire system can be compromised by the choice of power delivery products including the power distributor. The VENOM PS8 is the embodiment of designer Caelin Gabriel’s never ending quest to engineer products that not only deliver peerless performance but also possess exceptional value and build quality. The PS8 is designed to fit behind a rack or cabinet for ease of use. It's high capacity eight outlets and quality construction make it an ideal choice for video systems, media systems, recording systems and high-end audio power distribution applications.

Many of the same premium parts and hand-craftsmanship that have earned the HYDRA Series products multiple awards and professional endorsements are also used in the PS8 -- with the most significant difference being the PS8’s extraordinarily affordable price!

The PS8 is designed for a life-time of dependable service with from a chassis constructed of heavy gauge powder coated steel and a beautiful stainless steel top plate.

The VENOM PS8 has several applications including:

  • Media Centers and Home Theaters
  • Power System Expansion
  • Purist Power Distribution
  • Noise reduction and surge protection (optional VENOM DEFENDER)


In a nutshell  - Distributed Power Conditioning

Shunyata Research pioneered the concept of Distributed Power Conditioning to solve the problems associated with power line noise in complex home entertainment systems. Home entertainment systems can be very complex involving many components located in multiple locations. These systems may use several dedicated power lines making it almost impossible to effectively reduce power line noise with a single-box power conditioner solution. Shunyata Research solves this problem by intercepting noise at multiple locations in the entertainment system using a variety of products.

Power Distributors

Shunyata power distributors supply power to multiple components while intercepting incoming power line RFI and EMI while also addressing CCI™ by reducing component-to-component interference. The use of DTCD™ Analysis has enabled Shunyata Research to develop multiple noise reduction technologies that do not compromise instantaneous current delivery.

NR Power Cables

Shunyata Research has developed several “noise reduction” power cables that measurably reduce power supply generated noise. The noise is intercepted by the power cord and dissipated before it has the opportunity to propagate throughout the power system

Remote Solutions

The VENOM AMP-1 is a single outlet device that includes surge protection and noise reduction and was deigned specifically for mono-block amplifiers and video projectors. The VENOM DEFENDER is a unique “pocket power conditioner” that was designed for a remotely located single component. It plugs directly into the AC duplex eliminating the need for a conventional power conditioner and the associated power cabling. i.e. A SONOS™ single-box audio component supplying music to a den or bedroom.

Applications

Media Centers and Home Theaters
The VENOM PS8, with its generous eight outlets, is the perfect solution for complex home entertainment and media systems. The exceptional current capacity and power rating ensures unfettered performance even when high-current amplifiers are used. The narrow profile (less than 4 inches) of the PS8 allows it to be placed behind a cabinet without pulling the cabinet out from the wall. All of the power cords plug-in from the top of the unit for easy access.

Power System Expansion
Many people already own a reference grade power conditioner like the HYDRA TRITON but need more outlets to power accessories. The 20 Amp current rating and advanced electromagnetic breaker ensures maximum current delivery capability. A reference grade distributor like the VENOM PS8 is perfect for expanded capacity.

The Purist Approach
Many purists appreciate a straightforward, high quality approach to power distribution but don’t need complex filtration and surge circuits. Unlike a power conditioner that provides surge protection and noise reduction -- a power distributor simply distributes power to multiple outlets. Pure high-capacity performance provided by exceptional parts like cryogenic power conductors, SR-Z1 outlets, electromagnetic breaker and vibration management are appreciated. The VENOM PS8 is purist’s dream product!

Power Distribution with noise reduction and surge protection
There are many people that would like a high-end power conditioner like the award winning HYDRA TRITON that includes surge and noise reduction but just can't find it in their budget. Consider using the VENOM PS8 along with its companion “pocket power conditioner” the VENOM DEFENDER. The VENOM DEFENDER plugs directly into the first outlet of the PS8. It provides over 20,000 Amps of surge protection and has a built-in noise filter to reduces power line noise and CCI™ interference. It even includes an LED status indicator.
