Over the past few weeks I have had the opportunity to use the Shunyata Guardian Power supply.
First off, I would like to thank olkiepolkie (Zach) for his generosity in allowing me the demo. After reading about some power concerns I was having he offered up the Shunyata as a possible solution.
I used the Guardian as the power supply for the BAT-VK500 dual mono amplifier. Additionally, a 20 amp IEC Venom Power cord Zach included from the unit to the wall, the Guardian does not come stock with a power cord, however, Shunyata will included one at low cost. The Guardian uses Hubbell outlets and large gauge copper wiring with Shunyata's Venom filter.
So to cut to the chase, I really like this unit. I compared the Shed rigs sound with the Guardian, PS audio UPC-200, and with no power supply running straight from the wall, I used PS Audio Statement Power cords from the Guardian to the BAT amplifier. The rest of the gear is listed in my signature.
What did I like? Without question the Guardian provided greater clarity and focus to the overall sound of my rig. Bass was more detailed and the space between instruments more defined.
The build quality of the unit is excellent, Shunyata uses electromagnetic breakers in lieu of MOV's. The breakers protect from spikes throughout the entire range from 120V to 6000V. It can handle pulse current from 6000 to 10,000 volts.
I absolutely have to own one of these.:D
Once again Thank You Zach.
For anyone in the market or considering power distribution/conditioning I would certainly recommend checking out the Shunyata line as they have many products depending on budget and needs.
Did I mention I really want one of these??
