Shunyata Everest 8000 Power Center

Caelin Gabriel of Shunyata Research's résumé includes stints at NSA, in military R&D, and in the computer industry, first digging weak signals out of noise then developing very high-speed network devices. He is also a lifelong audiophile. 

Over the past 25 years Shunyata Research has earned a reputation for producing the highest-performance power-distribution systems on the market.  Whether providing clean power for James Guthrie’s re-master of Dark Side Of The Moon, or unearthing never-before-seen signal resolution in heart surgery systems, Shunyata Research’s results have been consistently transformational. Caelin Gabriel set about the herculean task of combining his 25 years of experience and scientific innovation into one towering product that incorporates all he’s learned about power-system design.  That once in a generation product is the Everest 8000.

What it does and why you need it

The Everest 8000 features patented technologies and proprietary components that are unavailable in any other competitive product.  The Everest supplies unrestricted peak current to multiple components while dramatically reducing noise from the power line and intercepting noise from component-to-component interactions, isolating each component in the system. In addition, the Chassis Ground System (CGS) achieves new levels of ground-plane noise reduction in the Everest

Four CGS terminals support the connection of up to 12 audio components. The Everest utilizes a tower design and cable cradle system, ensuring proper support for bulky cables.  

How to wire your power - an ideal system

Plug the Everest 8000 Power Distributor into the wall using a Sigma V2 XC ($4480) power cord, and Alpha V2 NR power cords ($3450) between the Everest and front-end components.

Your amps would plug directly into the second circuit with Shunyata's Alpha v2 NR ($3450) power cords. There are no current delivery restrictions of any kind within the Everest. Instead, DTCD® (dynamic transient current delivery) is markedly improved across all outlets.

With six independent zones of noise isolation, Everest 8000 can be used in a system composed of digital, analog, and high-current electronics. 

All outlets deliver both exceptional high current performance and standard-setting noise isolation that virtually eliminates component-to-component interference.


"My system sounded significantly better"

EVEREST 8000 accepts the coveted “GOLDEN EAR AWARD”

“…the Everest 8000 represents an entirely unprecedented level of performance… The sonic result is mind blowing.The Everest 8000 and Omega XC have become essential parts of my reference system. The Everest allowed the outstanding components in my system to perform at their highest level…”

“No weasel words are needed with the Shunyata Research Everest 8000 power distributor; it makes your system sound better
no matter the system and regardless of where you live. It’s a game-raiser and a game-changer in one.”
