Caelin Gabriel's characterization of the Everest 8000/T from another site:

"[Triton v3] dynamics and refinement
+
[Typhon QR] power & 3D spatial qualities
+
[Denali v2] silence & noise reduction
+
[Denali 6000/T] tower format w/integrated base"

The US MRSP on the Shunyata website is $8,000. I think they are going to sell a lot of these.

Plan on auditioning this in lieu of my Denali v1 + DPC-6 combo.

Not at all clear what this will be, but Caelin is suggesting it applies to the Denali S2 rack based, rather than any other Denali product (like my tower version). Also, it seems likely a version of the Everest for rack use may be coming in future months.

Sorry. I misinterpreted what Caelin was suggesting. Whatever is coming is tied to the S2 rather than any other Denali product extant.

I’m pretty sure he said that there wouldn’t be.

On another forum he has said multiple times no rack version.

As an FYI, Caelin has been teasing a companion device for the Denali power conditioners. He hasn't been sharing many details but it sounds a lot like a Typhon-like device for the Denali.

@kennyb123 Time will tell if Denali V1 owners will able to use this upcoming product. Or, will it be exclusive to the Denali V2 only.

Most likely V2 owners and gives them a chance to add-on Everest like performance at their choice minus the 2 outlets.

Btw, Everest looks like a game changer. Was clearly expecting it to retail closer to 10K.

As a V1 owner, I have been paying close attention to Caelin’s comments on the “companion” product. When asked to clarify whether V1 owners can benefit, his answer has been “Denali 6000/S”.

It could be that this product is still in development and he doesn’t yet know if V1 can be supported, but I seriously doubt that. The V2 doesn’t have any kind of connector that would allow a companion product to mate with it the way the original Typhon could mate with a Triton. So maybe it’s like the Typhon QR in that it can be plugged directly into the wall.

Alternatively, the companion might plug into an outlet in the Denali. That’s maybe where we’ll find that differences in the V1 and V2 result in the companion providing greater benefit to the V2 than the V1, thus still making the V2 a compelling upgrade for V1 owners.

Pure speculation here but I’m remaining optimistic until I hear something specific that blows holes into my reasoning.

That is what I heard; you should ping Caelin or Grant or perhaps they will answer here.
