FLOOR MOUNT – TOP ACCESS
The UK6 Series has been designed with home theater systems in mind. They are ideal for installation behind a cabinet or rack system. All the outlets face upward allowing ease of access while the shallow depth allows the UK6 to be located almost anywhere, even behind a cabinet or close to a wall.
HIGH CURRENT CAPABILITY
The UK6 power distributors are designed using DTCD® analysis and carries a 13-Amp continuous rating. This virtually unlimited power delivery capability allows it to power entire systems including high power amplifiers. The non current-limiting electromagnetic breakers combined with massive 6 mm2 gauge internal wiring maximizes instantaneous current delivery and dramatically improves dynamic contrasts and bass impact.
MEDIA SYSTEMS AND HOME THEATERS
The six outlets provide the perfect solution for complex home entertainment and media systems. The exceptional current capacity and power rating ensures unfettered performance even when high-current amplifiers are used. The narrow profile (less than 9 mm) of the UK6 allows it to be placed behind a cabinet without pulling the cabinet out from the wall. All of the power cords plug-in from the top of the unit for easy access.
POWER SYSTEM EXPANSION
Many people already own a reference grade power distributor like the HYDRA TRITON or DENALI but need more outlets to power accessories. They recognize that the quality of power distribution dramatically affects audio and video performance. A reference grade distributor, like the VENOM UK6, is perfect for expanding socket outlet capacity with no loss in performance.
THE PURIST APPROACH
Many audiophile purists appreciate a straightforward, high quality approach to power distribution without having to contend with the complexity, fallibility and inconvenience of power regenerators and isolation transformers. The UK6’s all metal construction, massive cryogenic conductors, quality connectors, electromagnetic breaker, Trident module and CCI™ noise filter provide by exceptional performance. The VENOM UK6 has an unbeatable combination of performance and value.
DTCD® Analysis is a technique that measures instantaneous current through low impedance electrical conductors and contacts. We use it to optimize the design, specification and construction of parts and materials to ensure maximum current delivery performance in our power distributors and power cables.
CCI™ (COMPONENT-TO-COMPONENT ISOLATION)
CCI™ v3 modules isolate power line noise from one component to another component. These new CCI™ modules were originally developed in our military, scientific and medical imaging research programs. They are currently being used to great effect in Electrophysiology heart surgery. As used in the UK6, noise may be reduced more than -24dB from 100 KHz to 10 MHz!
SUPERIOR A.C. OUTLET
From the outside, all A.C. outlets look similar other than the color, but once you look inside there are dramatic differences that are easy to define. A common outlet that is typical of what is used in new home construction and some high-end power conditioners has a small body decreasing air flow and the ground strap is made from inferior tin and nickel instead a copper alloy. The internal current carrying contacts of the UK6 are much larger than in common outlets and are made from a high quality brass and copper alloys. The common outlet makes contact on a thin knifes edge. This can arc and develop carbon deposits over time, decreasing electrical integrity. The UK6 outlet has a secure contact system that has broad contact areas that grab the plug from three different sides.
HIGH CURRENT A.C. INLET
Connector inlets are very important to performance and specifically DTCD®. Most power conditioners use the the ubiquitous and inferior IEC C15 inlet.
The VENOM UK6 comes equipped with the IEC C19 which has larger electrical contacts and was designed specifically for high capacity industrial use and to carries a 16-Amp continuous service rating.
The TRIDENT Module provides a massive 40,000 amps of transient and noise reduction in a single compact module. The noise reduction circuitry is similar in design to the MPDA™ and CCI™ noise reduction filters. It also includes a fault detection circuitry and and LED status indicator that monitors its operation. The module was designed to be field replaceable with only two terminal connections.
The VENOM UK6 is wired with proprietary ArNi® conductors developed by Shunyata Research. These conductors are “hollow tube” VTX™ designs that are made from pure OFE C10100 copper and then treated with the KPIP™ Processor. 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.
Mechanical vibration can be very destructive to system performance. The UK6 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 structure 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.
KPIP™ “BLACKBIRD” PROCESSOR
Each VENOM UK6 is treated with Shunyata Research’s proprietary KPIP™ Processor. The ‘Kinetic Phase Inversion Process’ dramatically reduces burn-in time and significantly improves sonic performance.
Many of the electrical parts in the UK6 are treated in Shunyata Research’s own advanced computer controlled cryogenics lab.
Hubbell SR-Z1 Outlets
Shunyata CEO, scientist Caelin Gabriel explains the significance of electrical outlet connections in current delivery and explains why superior-grade outlets are recommended for the purposes of current delivery to high-performance audio and video systems.
The CopperCONN™ connectors are electrical power connectors designed by Shunyata scientist Caelin Gabriel. Their unique construction and performance attributes are unique in the world of high-performance parts, found only in Shunyata Research products.
