The Delta NR power cord is the most affordable of the NR (noise reduction) power cords from Shunyata Research. NR power cords that have built-in filters that reduce power line noise. Delta NR features VTX™ (hollow-core) conductors and pure copper CopperCONN® connectors. The 10 gauge conductors make it ideal for high-power amplifiers and source components. Standard length of cable is 1.75 metre. Please contact us for custom lengths.
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.
Shunyata Research's exclusive VTX™ conductors are made in the shape of virtual tubes. The core of the conductor is completely hollow minimizing skin effects and random eddy currents. They are produced using OFE Alloy-101.
CCI™ filters have the unique ability to reduce component-generated power line noise without inhibiting DTCD® (dynamic transient current delivery). This unique filter element prevents power line noise from one component contaminating the other adjacent electronic components. Shunyata Research’s CCI™ filter modules consist of proprietary multi-stage filters that reduce power supply-generated noise without the use of heavy transformers, coils or large capacitors.
Many audiophile grade connectors are made from brass or bronze. While some may get a plating of silver, gold or rhodium, the majority of the current is carried by the contact’s base-metal. CopperCONN® connectors contain pure copper contacts which has a much higher conductivity that brass. The difference in performance is clearly audible.
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.
Shunyata Research was founded by former military scientist Caelin Gabriel in 1997 with the goal of designing power-line and cable systems that would eliminate the deleterious effect noise has on high resolution sound and visual imaging systems. Guided by Gabriel’s use of measurement, innovative science and his many patents, Shunyata has grown to become one of the most professionally endorsed cable and power-product manufacturers in the audio/video industry. Shunyata’s factory is located across the Puget Sound from Seattle, in Poulsbo, Washington. Shunyata’s factory has 18,000 sq. feet of work space and offices to support 18 employees, most of whom have been with the company since its inception. Most Shunyata Research products are hand-assembled in Washington by a team of skilled product technicians, while all products are packaged, stored and shipped at Shunyata’s factory. Shunyata Research works with many of the world’s finest retailers in North and South America, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Best known for using credible science and extreme parts customization to deliver products with the absolute highest performance and value, Shunyata Research has proven instrumental in advancing the state of high performance power conditioning and system cabling.
