The Hydra Sigma S12
Sigma S12 is massively over-rated to handle even the most current hungry amps yet true to its passive nature runs cool and quiet in operation. The twelve outlets in the Sigma S12 can accommodate large systems while its 3-stages of noise isolation offers the most stunning aural and visual images in its class. Although packed with 20+ years of Shunyata’s most evolved technologies, Sigma S12 comes in at a price point that makes it one of the best values in the market today.
The S12 has twelve outlets which makes it the ideal solution for large systems or for home theater systems. If you need high capacity but want near reference level performance, the Sigma S12 is your top choice.
The 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 reduces noise without any of the negatives associated with power filter coils, capacitors and transformers.
GP-NR Noise Reduction
Significant amounts of noise exist on the ground plane of power lines. The ground wires can act as antennae, picking up electrical noise that can degrade the performance or operation of the electronic components. Ground Plane Noise Reduction (GP-NR™) is a proprietary technology developed by Shunyata Research to significantly reduce ground-plane noise; improving low-level resolution and clarity. The system includes one to four terminals, depending on the model, to connect as many as 12 audio components. We offer several models of CGC chassis grounding cables each made to your custom length and termination requirements.
