Shunyata Research Venom NR V10
The Venom V10 NR is the lowest cost NR (noise reduction) cable in the NR Series which includes the Delta NR, Alpha NR, Sigma NR. NR cables are specifically design to reduce electrical noise generated by the component’s power supply. Venom NR cables feature large gauge OFE conductors with advanced fluorocarbon dielectrics. The Venom V10 NR delivers advanced technology and unprecedented performance at its very reasonable price point.
The Venom NR series of power cables provide objective, dramatic performance benefits that simply do not exist outside of Shunyata’s own product range — regardless of price!
NR NOISE REDUCTION
Shunyata Research’s exclusive NR (Noise Reduction) technology is a multi-stage filter network that measurably reduces power-line and component-generated noise, producing better purity of tone and clarity. It delivers a stunning background of silence to recordings, allowing the listener to hear into recordings as never before. Every nuance of meaningful content is revealed, bringing to life music’s most consequential moments as if the performers are in the room with the listener.
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.
OFE Alloy 101
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
Fluorocarbon dielectrics are usually only found in wire used in the aerospace industry, satellites and only the most expensive audiophile cabling. It has special electrical characteristics; very low dielectric absorption, high dielectric strength and exceptional heat resistance. When used in audio and power cables is reduces the perception of dynamic compression and it improves sonic low-level resolution and clarity. Crystal clear transient detail.
Audiophile Grade Connectors
Shunyata Research audiophile-grade connectors are made from a high-grade brass-copper-zinc alloy that can accept the very large 08 gauge conductors. The polycarbonate head-shells provide a lifetime of longevity.
Hermetically SealedThe connectors are hermetically sealed with an electrically inert compound that protects the contacts and wires from corrosion. The compound also ensures that the wires cannot become loose, fray or pull out from the head shell. This guarantees a lifetime of reliable performance that does not degrade over time.
Shunyata Research’s proprietary Kinetic Phase Inversion Process includes four days of continuous KPIP™ processing to dramatically reduce burn-in time and significantly improve sonic performance, delivering a relaxed and life-like presentation.
