Product Description

Shunyata Research Eiger power conditioner has won multiple Product of the Year Awards and received rave reviews from major magazines worldwide. There are many music and film lovers who aspire to implement the Everest in their home system, but the cost has been prohibitive. At essentially half the size and half the price, while retaining 80% of the performance of the Everest, the EIGER is the solution to that quandary.

The EIGER’s iconic pyramidal tower shape has a narrow front profile allowing it to be placed alongside an audio rack without taking up valuable shelf space. The close proximity to the audio equipment allows for shorter and tidier AC power cable routing.

EIGER is designed using the patented technologies that have revolutionized performance in the world’s finest heart-surgery labs and recording studios. QR/BB™ technology, a non current-limiting electromagnetic breaker, and massive internal wiring allow it to power entire systems, including high-powered amplifiers. Its proprietary CCI™ medical-grade filters reduce noise by an astounding –50db.

In an age where prices for the finest in audio-visual performance continue to rise, EIGER distinguishes itself by delivering reference-caliber performance and cutting edge technology at a price that within many system budgets.

DYNAMIC TRANSIENT CURRENT DELIVERY

DTCD™ Analysis is a technique that measures instantaneous current through low impedance electrical conductors and contacts.  Shunyata Research uses it to optimize the design, specification and construction of parts and materials to ensure maximum current delivery performance.  Each part, conductor, noise circuit and material allows for maximum throughput of instantaneous current.

Listeners will experience earth-shaking low-frequency performance from even the highest-current amplifiers as well as dynamic contrasts unheard of outside of a live event.  More than any other design parameter, Shunyata Research’s skill in eliminating resistance and maximizing peak-current delivery is unmatched.

ZONES OF ISOLATION 

The EIGER features three zones of isolation. The EIGER is configured in such a way that each duplex is individually isolated. This design allows for significant reduction of CCI™ regardless of system configuration.

ArNi® CONDUCTORS

Shunyata Research has developed a proprietary line of ArNi® conductors. They are made with certified OFE C10100 (Certified ASTM F68) copper. The wire strands are arrayed in a proprietary hollow tube VTX™ geometry that reduces skin effects. ArNi® conductors are treated with Shunyata Research’s exclusive Kinetic Phase Inversion ProcessTM (KPIPfor a period of 4 days. 


HIGH CURRENT CAPABILITY

The Shunyata Research Eiger power conditioners have a 20-Amp continuous rating, ensuring unfettered power delivery to entire systems, including high-powered amplifiers. Advanced electromagnetic breakers combined with massive 8-gauge ArNi® wiring maximize dynamic contrast and bass impact.

HYDRAULIC ELECTROMAGNETIC BREAKER

Common power conditioners use fuses or thermal breakers for over-current protection. When heavily loaded, those devices cause voltage drops, increased contact impedance, thermal noise, excessive heat generation, and current-limiting effects. The EIGER uses a more advanced solution called a hydraulic electromagnetic breaker that can operate right up to the maximum current rating without the limitations of fuses or thermal breakers.

HIGH-QUALITY OUTLETS

The EIGER uses premium Hubbell outlets that use a triple-wipe contact system and have broad contact areas to grip a plug from three different sides, providing superior electrical integrity. Hubbell outlets feature a solid brass back-strap that ensures a reliable ground connection that may reduce noise and hum. The European model EIGER include mains sockets that feature copper alloy contacts designed to accept large-gauge conductors.

CABLE CRADLE SUPPORT SYSTEM

The EIGER includes Shunyata Research’s unique solution for the problem of heavy high-end power cables. The Cable Cradle supports the weight of the power cables, preventing them from pulling away from the outlet. This system is designed to ensure reliable and secure electrical connections. The Cable Cradle is only available on US and Asia models.

VIBRATION MANAGEMENT

Mechanical vibration can be very destructive to system performance. The EIGER was designed from its inception to include advanced forms of vibration control that improve the recovery of subtle musical detail and nuance. All chassis panels and internal structures are treated with vibration dampening panels. Each outlet is isolated from the chassis with a vibration-dampening gasket that reduces vibration conducted through the AC cables. All internal modules, filters, and electronics are encapsulated in a vibration-absorbent compound.

VIBRATION-DAMPENING FOOTER

The EIGER benefits from Shunyata Research’s years of research into the negative effects of vibration. We have developed own own sub-miniature accelerometers to accurately measure the effects of floor and airborne sound waves. We use these in the development of vibration absorbing materials such as energy absorbing footers, AC outlet gaskets and chassis dampeners that reduce resonant vibration. Recognizing that vibration control is important to overall performance, the EIGER chassis are made with dampened steel and aluminum, rather than plastic or thin-wall sheet metals.

KPIP™ “BLACKBIRD” PROCESSOR

Each EIGER is treated with Shunyata Research’s proprietary Kinetic Phase Inversion Process (KPIP). The KPIP™ dramatically reduces burn-in time and significantly improves sonic performance.

CRYOGENIC COMPONENTS

Many of the electrical components in the EIGER are treated in Shunyata Research’s own advanced computer-controlled cryogenics lab. Further cryogenic treatment of the unit is strongly discouraged, and will void your warranty.
