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 Venom-X AES/EBU cable from Shunyata Research offers great value, featuring much of the technology of the Delta cable at a lower price. The Venom-X comes with custom-built platinum-plated connectors created by Shunyata themselves, and the Precision Matched Impedance construction means a reliable and smooth transfer of signal. It is also built from the ground up, rather than simply being an S/PDIF cable with a different termination. All Shunyata Research cables benefit from their Kinetic Phase Inversion Processing, which they consider to be superior to the regular burn-in process.

What Shunyata Research say

The Highest Standards

Designer Caelin Gabriel set out to design a new benchmark for value that would perform well beyond the VENOM-X’s affordable price points. Based on exhaustive test results, the VENOM-X range of cables have exceeded every expectation. VENOM-X cable designs are expressly developed to offer performance previously considered unobtainable at two to three times their affordable price points.

The key to the VENOM-X cables performance is their customization, conductor treatments and the foundation of science that underscores all Shunyata Research cable designs. Whether it is the PMZ conductors in the digital cables that eliminates added impedance, or the balanced tone and geometry of VTX conductors in the speaker cables, the VENOM-X model cables are poised to become Shunyata’s next range of multi-award-winning products.

The Sound of VENOM-X

What do VENOM-X cable designs sound like? Using live music as a guide, VENOM-X model speaker cables, digital cables and interconnects convey the immediacy, dynamics and propulsion we might experience at a live event. VENOM-X cables also perform with a beautifully refined voice that is impossible to find anywhere near their reasonable prices. VENOM-X cables convey an inherent sense of transparency, accurate timing and low-level detail that simply does not exist even in some of the world’s most expensive cables.

Applications

An integrated VENOM-X system of cables delivers performance that rivals any other SOTA cable system — often at less than one-quarter of the cost. VENOM-X cables are specifically designed to deliver jaw-dropping performance in systems of all types, whether solid-state, digital, tube and analog. Even right out of the box, one listen to the VENOM-X interconnects, speaker cables and digital cables will convince even the most hardened skeptics of their inherent design pedigree and performance.

 

 

 

Shunyata Research digital cables are produced using a ‌Precision Matched Z (‌‌PMZ) concept. This means that tolerances of the conductor surface, dielectric extrusion, and the precision of the braided shield are held to minute variances. To achieve these tight tolerances, the extrusion and braiding machines must be run at one-quarter speed during the manufacturing process. The result is better performance through a reduction of cable-induced ‘signal jitter’. (Note: Z means impedance)

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.

 

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.

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.
