Shunyata Research Hydra Alpha A10

The Hydra Alpha A10 is the top model in Shunyata’s Performance line of products

The Alpha A10 combines patented innovations from Shunyata Research’s critically acclaimed Hydra Triton and Hydra Typhon designs with transformative technologies developed from its heralded medical division products.

Over the past 25 years, Shunyata Research has earned a reputation for producing the finest power distribution systems in the high-end audiophile market.  From providing clean power for James Guthrie’s re-master of Dark Side of the Moon, or resolving subtle heart signals in medical imaging systems, Shunyata Research products have consistently provided transformational results.  With the legacy of award winning products, Shunyata Research designer Caelin Gabriel set about combining 25 years of experience and scientific innovation, into a product specifically for the UK audio market.

The Hydra Alpha A10 features 10 UK sockets, these sockets are divided over 6 zones. Compared to the Denali the Alpha 10 is visually more traditional looking, it can fit in a normal equipment stand or even an enclosed cabinet or cupboard as it generates no heat.

The first 2 sockets are individual zones, so they are effectively protected from noise in their own little bubble of isolation, the other 8 sockets are zoned in 4 groups of 2 sockets, each group being isolated from all of the other sockets.

The Alpha A10 requires a C19 power cable.

There are 5 XC power cables in the range which are as follows

Venom V10 XC £749

Delta XC £1400

Alpha XC £2300

Sigma XC £3250

Omega XC £7000

The Alpha XC has been the most popular power cable used to feed the A10

Fundamentally all Shunyata power conditioners are all about maximising current delivery and lowering noise.

When a system is connected to an A10 the drop in noise floor is quite obvious, there is an increase in clarity and purity and overall presentation is much cleaner, It simply lets you hear your system perform to the best of its abilities, it sounds like that often used hi-fi cliche, but it is almost like a veil gets lifted from in front of your speakers, it never take long for people to hear the impact it brings and it many cases it as much about what you don’t hear. Less noise equals more music essentially!
