Venom V12 NR and Venom V10 NR are the lowest cost noise reduction cables in the NR Series which includes the Delta NR, Alpha NR, Sigma NR. NR cables are specifically design to reduce electrical noise generated by the component’s power supply. Venom NR cables feature large gauge OFE conductors with advanced fluorocarbon dielectrics. The Venom V12 NR delivers advanced technology and unprecedented performance at its very reasonable price point.
The Venom NR series of power cables provide objective, dramatic performance benefits that simply do not exist outside of Shunyata’s own product range — regardless of price!
The Venom V12 NR provides great performance for all source equipment like CD players, DACs, tuners and preamplifiers while the Venom V10 NR is ideal for high current amplifiers and power conditioners.
“Whether videos or white papers, Shunyata wants you not only to listen, but to pay attention to the science behind their products. I appreciate this. High-end audio has never been short on cable and power products that seem to be based on voodoo engineering. Shunyata wants you to know that they’re different, and they’ve gone to great expense to prove it.”
“Shunyata’s ethos is not about tuning your system a certain way, or adding this or that coloration to somehow enhance certain aspects of the music, or to counteract colorations caused elsewhere in the system. Shunyata’s products are about maximizing current delivery and reducing noise, and not much else.”
“The fact that Shunyata Research’s Hydra Alpha A12 power conditioner and Venom NR-V10 power cords got me that much closer to the state of the art for only about 5% of the cost of my system is a testament to what Caelin Gabriel and his company have accomplished. That makes these products not only an easy recommendation from me, but one of the best values in high-end audio.”

“Ultra Shunyata Research Hydra Alpha A12 Power Conditioner and Venom NR-V10 Power Cord”
The letters “NR” stand for “Noise Reduction”. Shunyata Research manufactures Noise Reduction power cords that contain filter circuits that measurably and dramatically reduce noise at specific frequencies common to the power line and electronic power supplies. NR power cords eliminate noise in two directions and deliver startling results when connected to electronics tasked with resolving low-level signals or improving visual images.
Shunyata Research’s NR power cords are used within the scientific community, medical imaging and heart surgery labs, and many world-renowned recording studios.
Every facet of the Venom V12 NR power cord has been refined to deliver measurably superior Dynamic Transient Current Delivery. DTCD™ Analysis is a technique that measures instantaneous current through low impedance electrical conductors and contacts. Shunyata Research uses it to optimize the design, specification and construction of parts and materials to ensure maximum current delivery performance. Each part, conductor, noise circuit and material inside the Delta allows for maximum throughput of instantaneous current.
Listeners will experience earth-shaking low-frequency performance from even the highest-current amplifiers as well as dynamic contrasts unheard of outside of a live event. More than any other design parameter, Shunyata Research’s skill at reducing impedance and improving dynamic instantaneous current is unparalleled.
HIGH PERFORMANCE CONDUCTORS
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
Fluorocarbon dielectrics are usually only found in wire used in the aerospace industry, satellites and only the most expensive audiophile cabling. It has special electrical characteristics; very low dielectric absorption, high dielectric strength and exceptional heat resistance. When used in power cables is reduces the perception of dynamic compression and reduces blur and slur of transients.
AUDIOPHILE GRADE CONNECTORS
The Venom V12 NR Custom features audiophile-grade connectors made from high-grade brass with the ability to accept the very large 12 gauge conductors.
Shunyata Research connectors are filled with an electrically inert compound that protects the contacts and wires from corrosion. The compound also ensures that the wires cannot become loose, fray or pull out from the head shell. This guarantees a lifetime of reliable performance that does not degrade over time.
Venom V12 NR power cords receive the same proprietary Kinetic Phase Inversion Process treatment developed for our Reference Line power cables.
Four days of continuous KPIP™ processing dramatically reduces burn-in time and significantly improves sonic performance, delivering a relaxed and life-like presentation.
NR Noise Reduction: > 12dB @ 1 MHz
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.
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.
Safety and quality control is job one at Shunyata Research. Before anything leaves the factory, we test each and every product thoroughly and carefully for safety and quality. This explains the long-term success of Shunyata Research products in the professional recording, medical, scientific, and consumer industries. Shunyata Research’s impeccable product safety and reliability track record for the past 23 years speaks for itself.
