what's this?
SPEAKER CABLES:

A quantity of 2 means you will receive a pair of speaker cables e.g. for your front left and front right speakers. By entering a quantity of 1, you will get a cable for a single speaker e.g. centre speaker and this option also enables you to vary the length (and termination) of your cable for each speaker.

OTHER CABLES:

A quantity of 1 means you will receive a single cable in the case of aerial, satellite, subwoofer, digital coaxial & optical cables and a pair of cables in the case of 2 rca to 2 rca analogue audio cables.

NON-CABLE PRODUCTS:

A quantity of 1 means you will receive 1 of the specified products.

The Delta v2 Phono Cable contains all the features of the excellent RCA cable- hollow VTX conductors made from Ohno single-crystal wire and TRON insulation, but also comes with a separate Delta v2 CGC grounding cable to eliminate ground loop 'humming'. As always, this cable undergoes 4 days of Shunyata Research's proprietary KPIP process to drastically reduce burn-in time.

The Delta v2 Phono Cable contains all the features of the excellent RCA cable- hollow VTX conductors made from Ohno single-crystal wire and TRON insulation, but also comes with a separate Delta v2 CGC grounding cable to eliminate ground loop 'humming'. As always, this cable undergoes 4 days of Shunyata Research's proprietary KPIP process to drastically reduce burn-in time.

 

What Shunyata Research say

 

The Delta Series interconnects inherit all of the fine features from the Venom Series including the exotic Ohno copper conductors. Their performance is notably enhanced with advanced fluorocarbon dielectrics, larger VTX™ hollow- core conductors and superior connectors terminated using Shunyata Research’s high-tech sonic-welding process.

Like all other Shunyata Cables, the entire Delta series benefits from KPIP™ treatment, which is not just another break-in box; rather, it is a truly advanced process that goes beyond simple burn-in and literally conditions conductors, making time consuming burn-in a thing of the past. KPIP™ dramatically elevates the performance of all products to which it is applied.

The combined effects of the features found in Delta Series cables delivers a significant improvement in resolution, clarity and coherency. Delta Series cables may represent the sweet-spot in the Shunyata Research line-up with an exceptional price-to-performance ratio.

 

The insulation that protects wire can create a ghost-like signal that subtly blurs the source audio signal. The scientific term for this is: dielectric absorption and re-radiationΞTRON® is a technology developed by Shunyata Research that prevents this type of signal cable micro-distortion.  It requires a special type of conductor that has two signal paths. An electric-field compensation circuit creates a contra-signal that prevents the insulation from developing a charge.  ΞTRON® cables preserve the integrity of the source signal even when using very long cable runs are required.

‌‌ArNi® wire was designed by Shunyata Research to be the finest quality wire available. It begins with the highest purity of copper and silver metals available, including Ohno (single crystal), PCOCC silver and OFE C0101 conductors. Fluorocarbon dielectrics, usually only found in aerospace applications that have exceptional electrical characteristics including extremely low dielectric absorption, high dielectric strength and superb heat resistance. When used in digital wiring it significantly reduces transient energy storage and release which affects phase noise performance.

Shunyata Research’s exclusive VTX™ conductors are formed into a virtual tube with the core of the conductor being hollow. This ensures that all the current flows through the outer periphery of the conductor which minimizes skin effects and random eddy currents. VTX™ conductors are made with single crystal Ohno, certified OFE or silver wire.
Ohno wire, also called ‌PCOCC was invented in 1986 by professor Atsumi ‌Ohno of the Chiba Institute of Technology in Japan. Copper wire is created by an extrusion process that pulls a rod of cold copper through a small orifice which creates multiple crystalline boundaries. By contrast, ‌‌Ohno wire is made by a process using heated molds that cast a wire to form a single crystalline structure. ‌‌Ohno wire is well known for its exceptionally pure, grain-free sonic qualities.

 

 

Kinetic Phase Inversion Processing was developed by Caelin Gabriel after years of research into the underlying causes of various effects such as burn-in, wire directionality and the effects of cryogenic treatment. He discovered that there was an underlying core principle that burn-in and cryogenics only partially addressed. Once the governing principle was understood it became possible to create a processor that reduces the need for long burn-in periods and eliminates the effects of cryogenic treatment. Four-days of continuous KPIP™ processing dramatically reduces the sonic ups and downs associated with burn-in, delivering a relaxed and natural presentation.

Phono ground wire: Just as the quality of the phono signal cable can affect turntable performance, so to can the phono ground wire. The phono cable ground wire should not be an after thought. It should be complete separate from the phono signal cable, not bonded to it. This isolates the ground wire from any captive reactance to the signal wires. Shunyata Research phono ground wires are made with VTX and VTX-Ag depending upon the model and are made from our exclusive ArNi conductors.

About Shunyata Research

Shunyata Research is the brainchild of Caelin Gabriel, who's efforts to improve his own music listening experience launched the science and research based company in 1997. From humble beginnings, Shunyata Research has grown into an internationally acclaimed company which designs and manufactures high performance electrical and cabling systems for recording, film, medical, surgical and consumer audio-visual systems world-wide. Shunyata Research's 18,000 square foot manufacturing and design facility is based just outside Seattle, in Washington State.

Gabriel holds more than 10 patents, with numerous additional patents-pending. These technical innovations have earned Shunyata Research product designs countless critical awards and endorsements from renowned recording studios, mastering engineers, heart surgeons and hospitals from all over the world. Caelin is a dedicated student of philosophy, transcendental meditation and the history of divergent thinkers. This unusual combination of intellectual discipline and unfettered curiosity offers the advantage of unorthodox insight and singular expertise. Shunyata Research is forged from this combination of Gabriel's training.
