VENOM V10 XC

Venom 10 XC is the lowest cost cable in the XC Series which includes the Delta XC, Alpha XC, Sigma XC and the ultimate Omega XC.  XC cables are designed specifically to optimize the performance of Shunyata Research power conditioners.  XC cables eschew noise reduction features in favor of enhanced DTCD (dynamic transient current delivery) which is essential to maximize the performance of power conditioners and high-power amplifiers.

The Venom V10 XC delivers advanced technology and unprecedented performance at its very reasonable price point. The Venom V10 XC features high capacity 10 gauge OFE conductors and advanced fluorocarbon dielectrics.

The Venom range of power cables provide objective, dramatic performance benefits that simply do not exist outside of Shunyata’s own product range — regardless of price!

Application: The Venom V10 XC is an ideal power cable for your Shunyata Research power conditioner while the Venom V10 NR or Venom V12 NR provides noise reduction to the source components.  The Venom V12 NR provides great performance for all of the source equipment like CD players, DACs, tuners and preamplifiers while the Venom V10 NR is ideal for high current amplifiers.

Recommended Power Conditioners: VENOM PS8 // HYDRA DELTA D6

Every facet of the Venom V10 XC power cord has been refined to deliver measurably superior Dynamic Transient Current DeliveryDTCD 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.

“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.”

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

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.

“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.”

AUDIOPHILE GRADE CONNECTORS

The Venom V10 XC Custom features audiophile-grade connectors made from high-grade brass with the ability to accept the very large 10 gauge conductors.

Hermetically Sealed

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.

“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.”
