Shunyata Research’s Caelin Gabriel was given a challenge. Create a power cord for Shunyata Research power conditioners that allows the conditioner to achieve its absolute maximum performance. Remove any and all constraints regarding construction time and difficulty and ignore cost limitations to produce the ultimate power cord.
The Omega XC is the result of that research project that spanned more than 3 years, involving literally hundreds of tests, designs and construction solutions. The Omega XC features Shunyata Research’s incredible VTX-Ag conductors in a mind-bending 4 gauge size.
The Omega XC represents the ultimate power cord by which all other power products must be judged in terms of verifiable science and performance.
The Omega XC is a barometer of what is possible when the innovation and resources of one great company’s science and materials technologies are brought to bear, with a singular goal of absolute superiority.
AWARDS & REVIEWS
The Omega XC is the ultimate performance cable for Shunyata Research power conditioners. Its massive 4 gauge VTX-Ag conductors are the largest conductors used in a power cord in Shunyata Research’s 20-year history.
The ideal application for the Omega XC would be to power the magnificent EVEREST 8000 power conditioner.
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 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 in eliminating resistance and maximizing peak-current delivery is unmatched.
Shunyata's VTX-Ag conductors are the product of a 25-year design progression steeped in credible science and definitive measurement.
VTX-Ag conductors use an outer tube geometry of the purest form of copper, intended to bring out the purest tone and timbres of recorded instruments and voice. This VTX outer core of pure copper surrounds an inner core of the purest form of silver. This inner Ag core demonstrably improves macro-dynamics and creates an incredible three dimensional weight and timing in the lower octaves.
CopperCONN’s™ internal metals are culled from solid copper and use a high-tension spring-loaded contacts for vice-like grip. This contributes to a measurable improvement in DTCD™ performance and a correspondingly obvious difference in audible performance.
CopperCONN™ connectors deliver measurably lower-resistance connections that will unlock the performance of any component and system.
TRUE CARBON FIBER HEAD SHELLS
Shunyata Research’s own true carbon fiber head shell designs come in three attractive colors/finishes. These rigid housings reduce micro-vibration-induced distortion contributing to the Omega’s stunningly silent performance
Shunyata Research’s proprietary Kinetic Phase Inversion Process includes four days of continuous KPIP™ processing to dramatically reduce burn-in time and significantly improve sonic performance, delivering a relaxed and life-like presentation.
Conductors: 04 gauge VTX-Ag
Connectors: CopperCONN™ Pure Copper
Noise Reduction: N/A
DF-SS ELEVATORS INCLUDED
Vibration control is an essential element in extracting the best performance from Omega QR. Therefore, the Omega QR is supplied with Shunyata Research’s exclusive cable suspension elevators: DF-SS Cable Elevators.
Longer cables include more DF-SS elevators:
(1) additional DF-SS 3-pack per 2 meters
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.
