Shunyata Research Alpha V2 XC Power Cable

The Alpha is the power cable that sits right in the middle of the XC range and is also the mid-range model in their Reference series (Delta, Alpha and Sigma)

Reference XC cables are designed specifically to optimise the performance of Shunyata Research power conditioners.  The Alpha XC cables eschew noise reduction features in favor of enhanced DTCD (dynamic transient current delivery).  Using proprietary conductors and parts developed for the Omega XC, the Alpha XC delivers pace-setting DTCD™, optimising power conditioner performance.

Standard cable length is 1.75m

Dynamic Transient Current Delivery

DTCD™ Analysis is a technique that measures instantaneous current through low impedance electrical conductors and contacts.  Shunyata Research uses it to optimise 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 maximising peak-current delivery is unmatched.

VTX-Ag Conductors

Shunyata’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.  This 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.

CopperCONN™ Connectors

CopperCONN’s™ internal metals are culled from solid copper and use a high-tension spring-loaded contacts for vice-like grip.  This contributes to a measurable improvement in DTCD™ performance and a correspondingly obvious difference in audible performance.

CopperCONN™ connectors deliver measurably lower-resistance connections that will unlock the performance of any component and system.

KPIP™ Processing

Shunyata Research’s proprietary Kinetic Phase Inversion Process includes four days of continuous KPIP™ processing to dramatically reduce burn-in time and significantly improve sonic performance, delivering a relaxed and life-like presentation.
