The Omega interconnect’s stunning performance is the result of Caelin Gabriel’s 25 years of intensive research into the patented technology and material science behind superior signal transmission. Every part and process within the Omega interconnects was approached with no constraints on time in development, cost, or material refinement. Similar to the multi-award-winning Omega digital cables, Omega analog interconnects set a new benchmark for progressive science and jaw-dropping performance.
For a quarter-century, designer Caelin Gabriel has been on a mission to create the perfect signal conductor. Dozens of conductor types were considered and relentlessly tested without regard to cost. The revelation came when testing the purest form of single-crystal OCC silver combined with Shunyata Research’s Kinetic Phase Inversion ProcessTM. When extruded using Shunyata Research’s VTXTM (virtual-tube) geometry, Gabriel found this conductor to be the purest-sounding, most distortion-free conductor in over 25 years of testing. Gabriel then added a vastly improved version of the patented ΞTRON® circuit, proven to measurably improve square-wave response. Each interconnect features patent-pending Transverse Axial Polarizer (TAP) technology that reduces EM field distortion. To finish the design, Shunyata Research commissioned the precision manufacture of its own platinum-plated solid copper connectors. Finally, Omega interconnects are treated with Shunyata’s proprietary KPIPTM process, significantly reducing burn-in time. The result is the world’s most extensively researched and technologically advanced cabling system.
Omega interconnects paint a vivid sonic portrait without editorializing, equalizing, or highlighting. There is an unmistakable purity of tone that captures the essence of a musical performance. Omega interconnects deliver a stunning sense of realism and dimensional space as if the recordings had been mastered at 32/384 kHz resolution versus 16/44.1 kHz. Omega interconnects express the subtlest shifts in micro-dynamics while simultaneously propelling explosive bass transitions, all emerging from a background of velvet silence. Whether reproducing the loudest crescendo or the softest whisper, they render sound as if it is untethered to a system of electronics. The music ebbs and flows with a natural, unforced, and grain-free realism that must be experienced to fully appreciate.
