I've got some big news, well for me at least, and I thought it important that I share this with the rest of the forum for reasons which will become very clear in a few seconds....  Big Grin

I have just become the official distributor for Shunyata Research in the UK! Some of you may recall that a few months ago I got my hands on a number of their products and was literally blown away by their performance. I initially approached another distributor I know well about taking them on but he wasn't able to for a number of reasons. It just seemed crazy to me that there wasn't a UK distributor. To cut a very long story short I decided to take a huge leap into the unknown and give it a go myself! After months of discussions and now just back from a trip to Seattle I am now proud to announce that I have formed a new company: The Shunyata Distribution Company which will soon start trading pending VAT registration and one or two other formalities. I know, I'm crazy, but sometimes these opportunities come up in life and you just have to go for it. It's always been my dream to work in hi-fi.

Before anyone freaks out I have no intention of using the forum to blatantly promote Shunyata. Whilst dealers and manufacturers are welcome on the forum we have always taken quite a hard line against blatant product advertising and this is not about to change! No way!

Having said that I do not intend to leave the forum; I am still a Devialet owner and this place very much feels like home. It's amazing to think that it was almost 2.5 years ago when I started PM'ing members of Hifi Wigwam with an idea of creating a dedicated Devialet forum. We now have over 2600 members and are one of the busiest hi-fi forums on the internet averaging just under 60 posts a day! Anyway I digress... the point is Devialet Chat means a lot to me and I am not about to compromise my integrity because of my arrangement with Shunyata.

So if everyone is OK with this I propose that nothing changes. I'll keep my business activities low-key and won't discuss products unless anyone specifically asks about them. I will update my signature shortly and restrict any discussion about Shunyata to the Shunyata thread. Smile In short I promise to abide by the very forum rules I helped to install.

Hi Murforce - a couple of points here:

1) I don't have any experience of the PRO series with Shunyata, I can't imagine it will be much different from the previous generation but I'd rather not make any recommendations until I have tried stuff out for myself. It's probably worth asking the question on the Shunyata Research thread (in Tweaker's Corner), I see some recent PRO owners are also Shunyata owners.

2) There is a complete relaunch of most of the Shunyata range taking place in a few weeks, with lots of new products coming. I have a couple of prototypes here but more than likely the finished products will be different. Based on what I've seen so far I think I can say with some confidence that some of these new products are going to seriously raise the bar in terms of value and performance.

Would love to hear if Shunyata plans to keep the Z-PC10 power cord in their new line up. I just bought a second D200 to go double mono, but by doing ao depleted funds for a second Z-PC10 for now.

The Z-PC10 is being replaced by a new product, it will be even more flexible with thicker gauge and better quality conductors (!) and will feature a brand new IEC design, I've not seen this in the flesh just CAD drawings. This new IEC is very slim yet will be able to take thicker conductors, it's basically a much better connector. Compared to the Alphas and Sigmas the IEC on the Z-PC10 was always a bit of a compromise, it will no longer be!

Anyway I will probably get into trouble for saying this! I should have more news in early December.
