The Omega XC
Shunyata Research’s Caelin Gabriel was given a challenge. Create a power cord for Shunyata Research power conditioners that allows the conditioner to achieve its absolute maximum performance. Remove any and all constraints regarding construction time and difficulty and ignore cost limitations to produce the ultimate power cord.
The Omega XC is the result of that research project that spanned more than 3 years, involving literally hundreds of tests, designs and construction solutions. The Omega XC features Shunyata Research’s incredible VTX-Ag conductors in a mind-bending 4 gauge size.
The Omega XC represents the ultimate power cord by which all other power products must be judged in terms of verifiable science and performance.
The Omega XC is a barometer of what is possible when the innovation and resources of one great company’s science and materials technologies are brought to bear, with a singular goal of absolute superiority.
Reviews and Awards--
The Omega XC is the ultimate performance cable for Shunyata Research power conditioners. Its massive 4 gauge VTX-Ag conductors are the largest conductors used in a power cord in Shunyata Research’s 20-year history.
The ideal application for the Omega XC would be to power the magnificent EVEREST 8000 power conditioner.
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 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.
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.
