      The original Venom-3 power cord became an industry legend due to its incredible performance & low price. Shunyata's new Venom HC v2 represents the finest performer of reasonably priced power cords.

      Product description

      Shunyata Research invests heavily in research and development, affording even our least expensive products the quality and performance that have made our reference products worldwide standard bearers. Venom HC v2 power cords are engineered to deliver on Shunyata’s promise of exceptional value and performance.

      The Venom HC v2 is the descendant of the Venom-3 which The Absolute Sound voted as “One of the 30 Best Values in all of Audio”.  The Venom HC v2 comes equipped with 10 gauge OFE power conductors for excellent current delivery.  The fluorocarbon dielectrics are usually only found on much more expensive power cables providing clarity and excellent low level resolution.  And the Venom HC’s pure copper contacts are unheard of at this price point.

      Applications

      The Venom HC v2 with its 10 gauge conductors is highly recommended for use with Shunyata Research’s power conditioners and for high power power amplifiers. 

      Other cables to consider: For even better performance with CD players, DACs and other source components we highly recommend Shunyata Research’s Venom V10 NR noise reduction power cord.  The Venom V14 Digital power cable is ideal for devices that use very noisy switched mode power supplies (SMPS) including computer peripherals, music-servers, NAS arrays, routers, switches, monitors, clocks, up-samplers, digital transports, wall warts, and power bricks.

      Technology

      DTCD

      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.

      OFE Alloy 101

      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.

      Fluorocarbon

      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.

      Audiophile Grade Connectors

      Shunyata Research audiophile-grade connectors are made from a high-grade brass-copper-zinc alloy that can accept the very large 08 gauge conductors.  The polycarbonate head-shells provide a lifetime of longevity.

      Hermetically Sealed

      The connectors are hermetically sealed 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.

      KPIP™ Processing

      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.
