The Sound of VENOM-X
What do VENOM-X cable designs sound like? Using live music as a guide, VENOM-X model speaker cables, digital cables and interconnects convey the immediacy, dynamics and propulsion we might experience at a live event. VENOM-X cables also perform with a beautifully refined voice that is impossible to find anywhere near their reasonable prices. VENOM-X cables convey an inherent sense of transparency, accurate timing and low-level detail that simply does not exist even in some of the world’s most expensive cables.
An integrated VENOM-X system of cables delivers performance that rivals any other SOTA cable system — often at less than one-quarter of the cost. VENOM-X cables are specifically designed to deliver jaw-dropping performance in systems of all types, whether solid-state, digital, tube and analog. Even right out of the box, one listen to the VENOM-X interconnects, speaker cables and digital cables will convince even the most hardened skeptics of their inherent design pedigree and performance.
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 audio and power cables is reduces the perception of dynamic compression and it improves sonic low-level resolution and clarity.
KPIP™ (Kinetic Phase Inversion Process) was developed by Caelin Gabriel after years of research into the underlying causes of various effects such as burn-in, wire directionality and the effects of cryogentic treatment. He discovered that there was an underlying core principle that burn-in and cryogenics only “partially” addressed. Once the governing principle was understood it became possible to create a processing technique and machine that could virtually eliminate the need for burn-in and cryogenic treatment.
