Many of today’s consumer electronics require miniature AC power input connectors. This can make it difficult to upgrade the power cords for these components. Shunyata Research has developed its own set of adapters to accommodate all three types of mini-connectors including the C7, C7p and C5 types. These adapters will allow you to use any of your existing audiophile grade power cords by simply plugging the adapter on the IEC end of your power cord.

Ideal applications include all computer peripherals and video processors including; computers, music-servers, NAS arrays, routers, switches, monitors, clocks, up-samplers, digital transports, wall warts, and power bricks that use the mini-connectors.

We also make the Venom V14 power cable which is a full length cable terminated with a standard US AC plug.

DTCD logo
DTCD™ Analysis is a technique that measures instantaneous current through low impedance electrical conductors and contacts. Shunyata Research uses it to optimize the design, specification and construction of parts and materials to ensure maximum current delivery performance. Each part, conductor, noise circuit and material 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 contrasts 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.

OFE Alloy 101
Shunyata Research uses only the highest purity of copper available for the production of its wire products. OFE Alloy 101 or C10100 is the highest grade of copper with a minimum 99.99% purity and a conductivity rating of 101% IACS. OFE stands for oxygen-free electrolytic and supersedes the term OFHC (oxygen-free high conductivity). C10100 is the only grade of copper that comes with a written certification of purity.

Certified by ASTM F68 C10100

Audiophile Grade Connectors
Shunyata Research audiophile-grade connectors are made from a high-grade brass-copper-zinc alloy that can accept the very large 08 gauge conductors. The polycarbonate head-shells provide a lifetime of longevity.

Hermetically Sealed
The connectors are hermetically sealed with an electrically inert compound that protects the contacts and wires from corrosion. The compound also ensures that the wires cannot become loose, fray or pull out from the head shell. This guarantees a lifetime of reliable performance that does not degrade over time.
