Dynamic Transient Current Delivery is critical to performance for high performance entertainment systems.  All elements in Venom V14 power cords, including the wires, contacts, dielectrics and junctions, are tested and optimized using Shunyata Research’s proprietary DTCD™ Analyzer.  This optimization ensures outstanding low-frequency performance as well as dynamic contrasts akin to a live musical event.  More than any other design parameter, Shunyata Research’s ability to provide measurable dynamic instantaneous current is unparalleled.


The Venom V14 combination of exclusive features including OFE copper, shielded conductors, audiophile grade connectors and fluorocarbon dielectrics contributes to improved dynamics, timing precision, and low-level resolution while preserving the subtle tonal, textural, and timbral signatures that bring music to life.

OFE ALLOY 101 Copper

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


The Venom V14 cable has 100% coverage shields that help to reduce RFI and EMI interference.  Shielded power cables help to prevent electrical noise from being coupled to sensitive interconnects.


The Venom V14 features audiophile-grade, molded connectors made from high-grade brass with the ability to accept 14 gauge power conductors.  The connectors are completely sealed with a potting compound that protects the contacts and wires from corrosion. This also prevents any possibility of the wires becoming loose over time.


Venom V14 power cords are treated with Shunyata Research’s proprietary Kinetic Phase Inversion Process.  Four days of continuous KPIP™ processing dramatically reduces burn-in time and significantly improves sonic performance, delivering a relaxed and life-like presentation.


The unparalleled craftsmanship and build quality of Shunyata Research products is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.  The new Venom V14 power cords are prime examples of our commitment to superb performance backed by exceptional quality, warranty, and customer support.
