EXCLUSIVE NR TECHNOLOGY
The letters “NR” stand for “Noise Reduction”. Shunyata Research manufactures Noise Reduction power cords that contain filter circuits that measurably and dramatically reduce noise at specific frequencies common to the power line and electronic power supplies. NR power cords eliminate noise in two directions and deliver startling results when connected to electronics tasked with resolving low-level signals or improving visual images.
Shunyata Research’s NR power cords are used within the scientific community, medical imaging and heart surgery labs, and many world-renowned recording studios.
The noise reduction technology used within NR power cords is non-reactive and non-current-limiting, making the NR power cords suitable for virtually any application where improved resolution of signals and visuals is the goal.
Dynamic Transient Current Delivery is critical to performance for high performance entertainment systems. All elements in Venom NR power cords, including the wires, contacts, dielectrics and junctions, are tested and optimized using Shunyata Research’s proprietary DTCD™ Analyzer. This optimization ensures outstanding low-frequency performance as well as dynamic contrasts akin to a live musical event. More than any other design parameter, Shunyata Research’s ability to provide measurable dynamic instantaneous current is unparalleled.
The Venom NR combination of exclusive features including OFE copper, shielded conductors, audiophile grade connectors and fluorocarbon dielectrics contributes to improved dynamics, timing precision, and low-level resolution while preserving the subtle tonal, textural, and timbral signatures that bring music to life.
OFE ALLOY 101 Copper
Shunyata Research uses only the highest purity of copper available for the production of its wire products. OFE Alloy 101 or C10100 is the highest grade of copper with a minimum 99.99% purity and a conductivity rating of 101% IACS. OFE stands for oxygen-free electrolytic and supersedes the term OFHC (oxygen-free high conductivity). C10100 is the only grade of copper that comes with a written certification of purity.
Certified by ASTM F68 C10100
The Venom NR cable has 100% coverage shields that help to reduce RFI and EMI interference. Shielded power cables help to prevent electrical noise from being coupled to sensitive interconnects.
AUDIOPHILE GRADE CONNECTORS
The Venom NR features audiophile-grade connectors made from high-grade brass with the ability to accept very large 12 and 10 gauge power conductors. The connectors are completely sealed with a potting compound that protects the contacts and wires from corrosion. This also prevents any possibility of the wires becoming loose over time.
Fluorocarbon dielectrics are usually only found in wire used in the aerospace industry, satellites and only the most expensive audiophile cabling. It has very special electrical characteristics; very low dielectric absorption, high dielectric strength and exceptional heat resistance. When used in power cables is reduces the perception of dynamic compression and reduces blur and slur of transients.
KPIP™ ‘BLACKBIRD’ PROCESS
Venom NR power cords are treated with Shunyata Research’s proprietary Kinetic Phase Inversion Process. Four days of continuous KPIP™ processing dramatically reduces burn-in time and significantly improves sonic performance, delivering a relaxed and life-like presentation.
The Venom NR power cords consistently provide superb performance across a broad spectrum of electronic brands and component types. They truly redefine the performance envelope, within their product category, for all types of components, including amplifiers, pre-amplifiers, phono-stages, D/A converters, disc players, and tuners.
Shunyata Research stands alone as the industry leader in patented power technologies and measurably verifiable performance.
