The Omega USB cable is the crown jewel of Shunyata Research’s award winning range of USB cables. It significantly improves upon the performance of the Alpha USB that won the prestigious HiFi+ 2019 Product of the Year award and of the Sigma USB that was awarded The Absolute Sound’s 2019 Product of the Year award. Designer Caelin Gabriel has, yet again, established a new reference standard; this time for USB performance. The Omega USB, quite literally, has no equal regardless of price.



There are very few great quality USB connectors so we created our own.  It features an easy to grip, large diameter head-shell that accepts large gauge wiring. It has an exceptional strain-relief system that ensures longterm reliability even with heavy usage.  The contacts are made from high conductivity gold-plated copper assuring minimal signal junction impedance.



Shunyata Research digital cables are produced using a ‌Precision Matched Z (‌‌ PMZ ) concept. This means that tolerances of the conductor surface, dielectric extrusion, and the precision of the braided shield are held to minute variances. To achieve these tight tolerances, the extrusion and braiding machines must be run at one-quarter speed during the manufacturing process. The result is better performance through a reduction of cable-induced ‘signal jitter’. ( Note: Z means impedance )



‌‌ArNi® is a type of wire created by Shunyata Research designed to be the finest quality wire available for audio purposes. It begins with the highest purity of copper available – OFE C10100 or Ohno ( single crystal ). Then it is formed in virtual hollow tubes eliminating skin effects and eddy current distortions. In addition, the wire undergoes our proprietary KPIP™ process.



For the purest signal possible, Shunyata Research has combined its patent-pending TAP technology ( trans-axial polarizer ) and CMode filter ( common mode filtering technology ) into a single hybrid module. The TAP polarizer reduces polarization distortion while the CMode filter simultaneously reduces high-frequency noise distortion, delivering analog ease and palpable background silence that will close the gap between digital and analog front-end performance.

SR USB Cable

There are many problems with off-the-shelf USB cables including poor quality conductors and dielectrics and insufficient shielding.  Conventional cables induce high amounts of signal jitter and phase noise degrading sonic performance.

The SR-USB-Cable is an exclusive Shunyata Research product that was designed to achieve the ultimate levels of performance without regard to production cost. It starts with our highest grade of ArNi® wire featuring pure OHNO copper in a VTX™ geometry with fluorocarbon dielectrics.  The power wiring is a completely different type of conductor designed specifically for DC power transfer minimizing any signal transmission interference. Massive silver-plated copper braided shields protect the delicate signals from external RFI/EMI.

Beyond state-of-the-art!
