Regular price $269.99


Provides surge protection and noise reduction to your system!
You simply plug it into the wall outlet next to your system outlet.

Can be used with the PS8 power distributor.

The VENOM DEFENDER module was created by Shunyata Research to offer high-performance plug-in protection and advanced noise reduction technology for Shunyata Research's VENOM PS8 power distributor.

The DEFENDER provides superior protection and noise-isolation by plugging it directly into the VENOM PS8 or into the wall outlet. When combined with the VENOM PS8 power distributor and several of the VENOM Series power cords it provides the most cost effective and performance enhancing power-distribution system in the industry!

The VENOM DEFENDER features Shunyata's exclusive MPDA (multi phase differential array) which is a 30 element, surface-mount, filter network that dramatically reduces the noise floor improving musical enjoyment. Additionally, the NextGEN TMOVs provide up to 22,000 Amps of surge protection.

This DEFENDER contains an integral fault LED indicator that gives a status of the protection circuitry. This feature alone can be an invaluable asset for those concerned about the viability of their system's protection!


Advanced MPDA Filter

The MPDA (multi-phase differential array) is a complex circuit that significantly reduces power-line noise without the audible or visible side-effects normally associated with conventional capacitive and inductive approaches.

Surge Suppression

The VENOM DEFENDER includes 22,000 Amps of transient surge protection.

L.E.D. Fault

Red L.E.D. fault indicator that gives status of the internal protection circuitry.
