The Omega QR’s VTX-Ag conductors are the product of a 25-year design progression steeped in credible science and definitive measurement. VTX-Ag conductors use an outer tube geometry of the purest form of copper, intended to bring out the purest tone and timbres of recorded instruments and voice. The Omega QR’s VTX outer core of pure copper surrounds an inner core of the purest form of silver. This inner Ag core demonstrably improves macro-dynamics and creates an incredible three dimensional weight and timing in the lower octaves.


Patent Number: US 10,031,536 The Omega QR incorporates a refined and improved version of Shunyata Research’s Patented QR/BB™ technology. The QR/BB™ science was granted a patent because it possesses the ability to act as a coloumb charge, meaning it stores and discharges micro-second pulses of current in a way that improves a components access to instantaneous current. The sonic result is a lifelike presentation of timing and dynamic contrasts in sound that cannot be replicated by ANY other means. In layman’s terms, it acts like a super-charger for amplifiers, pre-amps, DAC’s and CD players.


Patent Number: US 8,658,892 The NIC™ (Noise Isolation Chamber) is a patented technology that reduces high-frequency power line noise. NICs™ use a non-reactive ferroelectric substance that absorbs high frequency noise.


Shunyata Research’s own true carbon fiber head shell designs come in three attractive colors/finishes. These rigid housings reduce micro-vibration-induced distortion and add to the overall silence behind the Omega’s presentation of sound and images.


Every facet of the Omega QR power cord has been refined to deliver measurably superior Dynamic Transient Current Delivery™. Each part, conductor, noise circuit and material inside the Omega QR 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 contrast 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.


The most critical power cord in all high-performance music, film and sound systems is the power cord that connects the power distributor to the wall. Shunyata Research spared no expense in designing its flagship Omega XC power cord to fulfil this singular, performance oriented function. Using Shunyata Research’s proprietary DTCD Analysis, Omega XC is designed to deliver the maximum peak-current energy that will unlock the true performance potential of entire systems. Using massive 04-gauge VTX-Ag (copper over silver) conductors and Shunyata Research’s own CopperConn™ connectors, Omega XC is the ultimate performance power cord in Shunyata Research’s XC arsenal of power cords, all exclusively developed for its award-winning lineup of power distributors.


Shunyata Research’s exclusive NR (Noise Reduction) technology has been improved for the Omega QR. NR technology is a multi-stage filter network that measurably reduces power-line and component-generated noise. NR Technology adds a stunning background of silence to recordings, allowing the listener to hear into recordings as never before. Every nuance of meaningful content is revealed, bringing to life music’s most consequential moments as if the performers are in the room with the listener.


CopperCONN’s™ internal metals are culled from solid copper and use a high-tension spring-loaded triple-wipe contacts for vice-like grip. More so than any “plated outlet”, CopperCONN™ outlets offer measurably lower-resistance connections that will unlock the performance of any component and system.


The Omega QR represents an ultimate power cord design template by which all other power products must be judged in terms of verifiable science and performance. The Omega QR is the barometer of what is possible when an entirety of one great company’s intellectual, science, and parts technologies are combined into one fabled design. In keeping with its reputation as the industry leader in design innovation, Shunyata Research remains ahead of the field.
