The Omega S/PDIF and Clock cables elevate the performance of digital systems to a degree that competes with the world’s finest analog and master tape sources. Shunyata Research’s innovative and proprietary technologies reduce common-mode noise and cable-induced jitter with its associated time smear that ultimately limits the performance of digital playback. The Omega S/PDIF and Clock cables don’t just improve digital playback, they literally redefine digital audio as a reference medium.
Kinetic Phase Inversion Processing 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 cryogenic 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 processor that reduces the need for long burn-in periods and eliminates the effects of cryogenic treatment. Four days of continuous KPIP™ processing dramatically reduces the sonic ups and downs associated with burn-in, delivering a relaxed and natural presentation.
PMZ Connectors — Pulse timing is critical to digital transmission accuracy. It is critical that a digital connector’s impedance precisely match the cables' characteristic impedance. A mismatched connector will create signal reflections that increase digital jitter or phase noise. A 50-ohm cable requires a 50-ohm termination — not the commonly used 75-ohm connector. Shunyata Research is careful to ensure that every cable and connector are precisely matched for a seamless component-to-component connection.
