What Shunyata Research say

 

25 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE & SCIENTIFIC INNOVATION - DESIGN PROGRESSION
The VENOM UK6 is a high performance power distributor designed specifically for the music, film and recording enthusiast, located in regions that require the UK BSI-style mains sockets. High-end home entertainment systems can be very complex and quite costly, yet the performance potential of the entire system can be dramatically affected by the choice of power delivery products including the power distributor. The UK6 has the build quality and reference level performance of much more expensive products.
Sound and recording professionals from around the world agree, Shunyata Research power systems are the finest in their product category.

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 DENALI or TRITON 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.

 

 

Traditional power conditioners are designed to block incoming noise from outside the home, but do not address the noise that is generated by the electronic components themselves. In fact, most conditioners reflect noise back into other components connected to the power conditioner. CCI™ (Component-to-Component Isolation) is one of the most significant but often overlooked aspects to power system performance. The CCI™ filter consists of a proprietary multi-stage filter that reduces electrical noise and interference generated by a component’s power supply.

 

 

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 operates its own onsite Cryogenics International computer-controlled cryogenic plant. Liquid nitrogen is used to reduce the temperature of the contents to -320 degrees fahrenheit. The computer monitors and lowers the temperature by a single degree at a time to prevent thermal shock.

We use this process to improve the performance of connectors and various electrical components that are used in our power products and signal cabling.

 

 

 

Simple crimping, soldering, brazing and screws are all inferior methods of joining two wires or terminals together. Sonic welding uses high-energy sonic waves to literally join two metals together at a molecular level and cold-welding uses high-energy pneumatic pressure to bond metals. Shunyata Research uses both methods to secure connections that do not degrade over time.

 

 

 

Shunyata Research has created its own vibration dampening solutions, after many years of research into its negative effects. Mechanical vibration can be very destructive to system performance. Our power conditioners are designed from inception to include advanced forms of vibration control that improve the recovery of subtle musical detail and nuance. All chassis panels and internal structures 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.

 

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.

 

 

 

ELECTROMAGNETIC BREAKER

Over-current protection is a requirement for today’s high current audio power distributors. The vast majority of manufacturers use an inexpensive thermal fuse or breaker. Both are specifically designed to heat up as the current level rises. This causes voltage drops, increased contact impedance, thermal noise, excessive heat generation and current limiting effects. There is a better solution — the hydraulic electromagnetic breaker that utilizes low-impedance relays and a sensing coil that reads the current level without heating up or limiting current. They can operate right up the to the maximum current level without heating up or limiting instantaneous current. They are rarely used in competitive products since they cost 10-20 times that of a common fuse or thermal breaker.

PREMIUM GRADE SOCKETS

The type and quality of mains socket has a significant impact on performance. The sockets we use in the our UK power conditioners feature massive copper alloy contacts that have superior conductivity compared to brass or bronze used in common sockets and have superior sonic qualities compared to audiophile outlets that use gold, silver, or rhodium plate platings.

The sockets have larger contact surfaces that provides for an incredible grip strength.This improves connection reliablity and DTCD — instantaneous current delivery capacity.

They also have expanded internal air gaps that improve cooling when powering high-powered amplifiers.The internal connection method utilites a high-force clamping mechanism that allows for the use of very large gauge wires.

RELIABILITY

Over more than 2 decades, the reliability and durability of Shunyata Research products has become a legendary attribute of the brand. Shunyata products are completely non-reactive and run cool to the touch. They do not hum, vibrate, buzz, or generate heat and do not require any ventilation. Despite heavy-use applications in studios, medical labs, and home environments, Shunyata Research products maintain an almost zero failure rate.

BUILD QUALITY

In an era of products that are mass-produced, Shunyata Research invests in training career craftsman who build our products by hand at our factory in Poulsbo, Washington. The exceptional fit, finish, and attention to detail has become a hallmark trait of Shunyata Research products going back to its inception in 1998. Shunyata Research has been building some of the finest power and cable products in the industry for more than twenty years. The commitment to building durable products that are designed to last a lifetime elevates our products to the top of their class.
