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.
PMZ — Shunyata Research digital cables are produced using a Precision Matched Impedance cable geometry. 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.
ArNi® wire was designed by Shunyata Research to be the finest quality wire available. It begins with the highest purity of copper and silver metals available, including Ohno (single crystal), PCOCC silver, and OFE C0101 conductors. Fluorocarbon dielectrics, usually only found in aerospace applications that have exceptional electrical characteristics including extremely low dielectric absorption, high dielectric strength, and superb heat resistance. When used in digital wiring it significantly reduces transient energy storage and releases which affects phase noise performance.
tAP/CMODE Hybrid Module — For the purest signal possible, Shunyata Research has merged its patent-pending TAP technology and CMODE filter into a single hybrid module. The TAP polarizer reduces electromagnetic signal polarization while the CMODE filter reduces common-mode noise that travels across all conductors. The combination delivers analog-like ease and palpable background silence that closes the gap between digital and analog systems.
