Even though ΞTRON® ANACONDA model speaker cables are not inexpensive, Shunyata has held the prices down to reflect only the real cost of the materials, research and labor necessary to produce reference-quality, US-manufactured cable products. Shunyata’s hope is that the ΞTRON® Series cables start a trend that brings the focus of cable design away from the ridiculous aesthetic add-ons that have become the norm, and back to what actually matters: measurable science and technologies that improve the performance of the world’s finest music and sound systems.
Shunyata Research scientist Caelin Gabriel’s extensive technical background and years of research deliver a true breakthrough technology that literally delivers reference quality sonics at a price that is affordable to the average audiophile. All of the Shunyata Research cable products that incorporate the ΞTRON® technology easily outperform cables that cost five, ten and twenty-times their price!
Reduces signal transmission distortion.
VTX conductors are in form a flexible tube which is the ideal geometry to minimize inductance and skin effect.
– Continuity and Polarity Tests – by two technicians
– HiPOT Tests for each cable
– Cable spools tested for insulation breakdown @ 2,000 VAC
– Each cable built by a single Craftsman – not on an assembly line
– Each cable signed by its Craftsman
– Fit and finish that is the standard of the industry
Shunyata Research developed an interchangeable terminal system that allows the customer to change from different size spades to bananas without the inconvenience and expense of sending the cable in for re-termination. The design of connectors ensures that there is NO loss of performance compared to a conventional terminal.
In Shunyata’s speaker cable and interconnect line-up, the ANACONDA speaker cables are the greatest performance-added product of them all. Yes, quality interconnects are important but getting the best speaker cables will make more of a difference in terms of allocating the signal cable budget. Recommended applications would be for any and all reference-grade sound and music systems.
When evaluating signal and speaker cables, the ANACONDA model speaker cables should be the first product auditioned if the budget permits. Once broken in (about one-week of play), the ANACONDA model speaker cables have proven to compete with or out-perform the most expensive speaker cables on the market. Adding the ANACONDA, or even PYTHON interconnects adds to the value of the ANACONDA speaker cables performance. Whether with tube or solid state systems, the ANACONDA speaker cables perform consistently, well beyond their more reasonable retail price when considering the comparative prices of the competitions reference cable products.
