Shunyata Research Omega QR-S Power Cable (2m)
Shunyata Research’s Caelin Gabriel was given a challenge. Create a design platform that would finally answer the question, “What level of performance is actually achievable from power cable technology?”. Remove any and all constraints regarding construction time and difficulty and ignore cost limitations to produce the ultimate power cable.
The Omega QR is the result of that research project that spanned more than 3 years, involving literally hundreds of tests, designs and construction solutions. The Omega QR is essentially a power conditioner within the confines of a power cord. The patented QR/BB™ and NIC™ technologies are miniaturised versions from Shunyata Research’s award-winning power conditioners.
Many retailers, distributors and end users requested a smaller brother that was smaller, lighter in weight and more flexible and designed for source components. And the Omega QR-s is born
The QR/BB™ module possesses the ability to act as an electric charge reservoir, meaning it stores and releases energy in a manner that improves a component’s access to instantaneous current.
Dynamics are actually improved reducing any sense of dynamic strain often heard from amplifiers that are connected with lesser power cables.
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, DACs and CD players.

The NIC™ (Noise Isolation Chamber) is a patented technology that reduces high frequency power line noise.
NICs™ use a non-reactive ferroelectric substance that actually absorbs high frequency noise. This allows Omega QR to reduce noise without any of the negatives associated with power filter coils, capacitors and transformers.

Shunyata Research’s exclusive NR (Noise Reduction) technology has been improved in the Omega QR with better purity of tone and clarity.
NR technology is a multi-stage filter network that measurably reduces power-line and component-generated noise. It delivers 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.
This cable uses Shunyata’s own mains plug and C15 IEC connector, a larger C19 connector is available as well.
The cable is designed for using on components, to use on a Shunyata Power Conditioner you require the XC version of this cable with a C19 IEC and is £7000
