As a happy shuyata customer(Triton v3, DFSS etc), I'm thinking about upgrading my power source
(adding Typhon(not Typhon QR) or DPC-6)

Currently, I have...
1) for audio :a Vivaldi DAC, 2 Clocks (Vivaldi Master clock, rubidium clock), a amp and a computer based music server
2) for video(TV) : a LCD TV, a Settop box (Internet based IPTV like appleTV)
3) for Internet : a router, a netwrok hub
* the internet devices above are used for audio and video

I just wonder what would be the optimum upgrade path and which device can give me more benefits(Typhon or DPC-6)?
And I would like to know the connection/setup (which device should be connected to what) too.
(Now DAC, Clocks, TV, Settop, and music server are connected to Triton)

I'll be appreciated if you share your experience and widsom.


Thank you.

Note:
* I want to enhance audio and video quality at the same time.
(Currently the TV and the settop box are connected to Triton and the picture quality became better than before (more resolution with vivid/bright color)
* I don't use audio and video at the same time in most cases (I don't watch TV when I listen to music usually)
* Only one power line with 4 sockets are available for the system.
* When I say Typhon above, it mean Typhon (not Typhon QR). Typhon QR is expensive for me...

Thank you

Before I upgraded to the QR I had the original Typhon, and it enhances the Triton. It plugs into the Triton, and nothing plugs into a Typhon Don't know what a DPC-6 is, but I seriously doubt if it is better than a Triton/Typhon combo

DPC-6 is a Shunyata's product which blocks electrical noise from digital components (such as router, computer, clock etc) and stop polluting the audio system.

And.. As I described in the previous post, my audio system is digital based, so I just wonder which product(typhon or dpc-6) is better choice in my situation.

Thanks

It is a tough call. Both improve system performance in different ways.
You didn’t mention what power cords you were using? That could be your most cost effective upgrade.
