The ΞTRON® PYTHON speaker cable represents the second in three steps of Shunyata Research's ΞTRON® Series cables. The PYTHON speaker cables improve upon the ΞTRON® COBRA cable system by incorporating the virtual tube VTX conductors as used in the reference ANACONDA speaker cable. The VTX conductors offer added body and tonal purity to an already silent background.


Where indicated, price is for the US only.

The PYTHON’s more reasonable retail prices relate directly to the quality of Shunyata’s materials, the patents-pending technology and the US hand-labour; not the inflated retail margins or jewel-like accessorizing common to products in the cable industry.

In A Nutshell

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!

VTX Geometry
VTX conductors are in form a flexible tube which is the ideal geometry to minimize inductance and skin effect.

Safety Assurance
– Continuity and Polarity Tests – by two technicians
– HiPOT Tests for each cable
– Cable spools tested for insulation breakdown @ 2,000 VAC

Shunyata Craftsmanship
– 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

STIS Terminals
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.


Don’t mistake them by their lower retail price, PYTHON speaker cables offer reference caliber performance as an affordable centerpiece of any cable system. The lower price and higher performance offered by the PYTHON speaker cables gives them almost limitless application potential across a broad range of music and sound systems. Just like the more expensive ANACONDA models, the PYTHON speaker cables can be combined with the PYTHON interconnects or the more affordable COBRA version to draw the best performance from almost any budget.

When deciding to evaluate speaker cables or interconnects – first, consider that Shunyata speaker cables such as the PYTHON will make the most profound difference for the most reasonable cost. When deciding to try one or the other, they should be considered first, or preferably, along with the matching technology interconnects for best effect.
