I received a Alpha HC power cord to be used with my Devialet

Today I received a Alpha HC power cord to be used with my Devialet D250 amplifier. I previously house a pair of Anaconda Speaker cables connecting the Devialet with my Magico Q3. This combination sounds fantastic in my opinion! I Listening to a wide selection of music - ZZ Top, Apex Twins, Opera, grand scale symphonic orchestral music, small jazz trios just to mention some - pretty much all kinds of music - and nowadays I am listening with a broad smile on my face. Both amplifier and speakers are very neutral and in combination with the Shunyata cable system, it all result in a convincing musical experience that forces me to play album after album. Thank you for manufacturing such great cables!

Best regards

Nothing could have prepared me...

Hi Richard,

I don't mean to sound weird, but I feel like I've unlocked the door to another dimension. Nothing could have prepared me for the difference I would hear employing the TRITON and just the one ALPHA HC in my system. Scary real!! Best believe I'll be buying more cords! Consider me a skeptic turned into a true believer!

Thanks oh so much for doing what you guys do!

All the best,

Eric

Shunyata Research & the Power Cord Tryouts

"As I wrote in January, my next step is to replace the Venom HC power cords with ΞTRON Alpha HC power cords and see what happens, then write about it. Priced at $1250 for a 6' length, this power cord is priced quite a bit higher than the Venom HC, so my expectations are commensurately higher. However, I don’t think I’ll write it up as a blog entry here. Instead, I’m impressed enough with what I’ve heard so far from the Venom products that I plan to write a full review of the Alpha HC on SoundStage! Hi-Fi. After that, I might even experiment more with power-related products. Suffice it to say that my curiosity is now piqued."

The truth has been revealed...

Dear fellow audiophiles,

After over a month of having the VENOM PS8, ALPHA HC 20 amp, ALPHA HC 15 amp and VENOM HC in my system, I am compelled to share some of my thoughts and observations. Without question, these components have raised my humble system to a level that I never thought possible. I will avoid the usual audiophile speak in describing my listening experience as these terms are so over used and subjective. Your cables and power components have by far had the greatest impact on my system. In a world of so much hype, your products are true and honest and allow an audio system to blossom. I now hear details like I have never heard before. I thought I knew what my system sounded like until I added Shunyata products. Up to this point I was hearing a lie, but now the truth has been revealed. In this regard I would highly recommend any Shunyata product to anyone that is serious about their audio system. Thank you for creating such wonderful products.

Respectfully,

Darrell M. Chappelle

You have embarked on a new frontier...

Dear Caelin, Grant, and Richard,

I had replaced the KING COBRA CX that I was using on my Spectral 4000SL CD player. I was initially underwhelmed by the ALPHA's lack of bottom end weight and majesty. Then I let the cable burn and settle in by putting the player on repeat for a couple hundred hours. Then came the sonic transformation of a level of an improved magnitude that blew me away! Up until now, my experience is that your power conditioning "boxes" offered more "bang for the buck" than your power cables. Not that your cables aren't most excellent, which they are (I have plenty of em!), but that a $5000 TRITON or TYPHON box offered more value than a $3,000 ANACONDA wire. Not any more! In fact, if I had to (reluctantly) relinquish, say one of my TYPHON's or my ALPHA DIGITAL cable, the TYPHON would be the one to go!

The ALPHA DIGITAL cable is a game changer. This may be the most important product that you have ever introduced to the market! The improvements, not differences, but improvements that I hear, in the context of my reference audio system are many. I will try my best to describe some of them. The soundstage is now much more clarified with an increased sense of imaging placement. Digital glare is tremendously reduced, and with that reduction of glare comes and increased sense of richness and density of timber of both instruments and voices. The sense of increased richness of harmonics and overtones of the instruments on the soundstage has been vastly improved. A guitar sounds more like a live guitar with the warm woody resonance of the soundboard with the interplay of the vibrating strings and their overtones on the harmonics. On piano recordings, I swoon at the hearing the sound of the individual mallets striking the strings and that instrument's resonance. The piano's sound and positioning on the stage is much better focused than ever before. Removing the glare from the human voice makes it sound, well, that much more human! Voices now seem to hang in space better than ever before, with every word more intelligible, particularly the ending of words. For example, lets say the vocalist sings the word "last". Before the ALPHA, the word would sound closer to "lass" (with some digital "spit"), and now sounds like "lasT" (and that enunciated "T" fades off into space). Vocals are SO much easier to follow! The ALPHA also allows the dynamics (macro and micro) of the recording to come though as never before, as I am now hearing each performer's individual contribution to the collective performance in the rhythm of the tune much more easy to discern. Combine all that I have mentioned and the increased sense of RPT and overall musicality in the sound of my system have gone WAY UP over the price of the ALPHA cable, which is less that a third of the price of the KING COBRA CX that it replaces! In fact if you had marketed this cable for the same price as that KING COBRA, it would have still been a fantastic value. Yes, it's that good.

You have embarked on a new frontier with the ALPHA DIGITAL that in one fell swoop, has allowed us to hear the improvements that the designers of digital equipment and the designers of their internal componentry have worked to improve in over the past generation. Using an Alpha Digital cable is like taking digital's sound ahead of where it currently resides into the future by a decade! It is that big of a deal!

With awe and appreciation for what you do...

RAC
