Shunyata Research Venom RCA
VENOM Series Signal Cables are the finest example of what can be achieved when a company with verifiable technical and material resources invests in the creation of products that represent the very definition of value and performance.The VENOM Signal cables are Shunyata Research’s answer to the obvious trend toward the obscene in high-performance cable pricing. To make an unequivocal statement of value, Shunyata Research invested all of its estimable material and technical resources into the design and construction of products that likely have no peer in terms of quality at, or anywhere near their well-reasoned retail pricing.Starting with very expensive OHNO Cast Copper as the base metal, VENOM Series Interconnects set a very expensive metals standard that may be impossible for others to compete with at these prices. Adding to this, VENOM Interconnects utilize Shunyata Research’s exclusive VTX (hollow-core) conductors, previously found only in our most expensive designs. Completing the package are Shunyata’s own custom brand of premium copper XLR and RCA connectors. To find this level of material quality and customization in expensive cable products is no certainty. To find these expensive elements in cables at reasonable price points is unheard of.Some brands of cable with little in the way of customization come equipped with four and five-figure price tags. In contrast, Shunyata Research is making its broadest statement of value by applying its finest parts and technologies within cable products that virtually anyone can afford.The VENOM Signal cable products were designed to compete with cable products costing many times their affordable retail prices. VENOM Signal cables have been priced this way for a reason -- to continue Shunyata Research’s reputation for creating beautifully crafted, extremely high-performance products at more real-world retail prices.
1M Cable
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 release which affects phase noise performance.
VTX-Ag cables are uniquely constructed with both an inner, center conductor made of pure silver and an outer concentric ring conductor made of pure copper.  It is made using the finest fluorocarbon insulation to minimize dielectric absorption and re-radiation which translates to an improvement in resolution and clarity.  VTX-Ag delivers the speed and clarity of silver and the midrange warmth and three dimensional power in the lower octaves of copper without imparting any of the negatives associated with either metal.
Ohno wire, also called ‌PCOCC was invented in 1986 by professor Atsumi ‌Ohno of the Chiba Institute of Technology in Japan. Copper wire is created by an extrusion process that pulls a rod of cold copper through a small orifice which creates multiple crystalline boundaries. By contrast, ‌‌Ohno wire is made by a process using heated molds that cast a wire to form a single crystalline structure. ‌‌Ohno wire is well known for its exceptionally pure, grain-free sonic qualities.

Kinetic Phase Inversion Processing

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.
