Alpha NR power conditioners your electronics, from source to amplifier; digital to analog. The NR uses Shunyata's Kinetic Phase Inversion Process (KPIP) – a groundbreaking conditioning method that not only eliminates the need for time consuming burn in as well as enhances the performance of your system, right our of the box!
The NR contains patented technology, exclusive metal treatments and customized components which are superior to it's competitors. This "Made in USA" Alpha NR's super pure copper conductors are mated to Shunyatas advances CopperCONN connectors. These contain pure copper contacts with higher conductivity principles than common brass and bronze contacts. Advanced dielectrics and noise-reduction capabilities can not only be heard, but measured.
KPIP (Kinetic Phase Inversion Process)
Shunyata founder Caelin Gabriel developed KPIP after years of research into the underlying causes of various effects such as burn-in, wire directionality, and cryogenic treatment. He discovered an underlying core principle that burn-in and cryogenics only partially addressed. Once the governing principle was understood, it became possible to create a processing technique and machine that could virtually eliminate the need for burn-in and cryogenic treatment.
Second-Generation Zitron Technology: Lowers Distortion, Preserves Integrity
The internationally patented Zitron technology is the most compelling of Shunyata Research's technologies given its ability to measurably lower dielectric distortion and preserve the original signal's integrity. It requires a special type of conductor that has two signal paths and an electric field compensation circuit that creates a cancellation signal that prevents the insulation from developing a charge. Zitron cables have earned a legendary reputation among reviewers, customers, and sound professionals for their ability to eclipse the performance of even cost-prohibitive cables. Caelin Gabriel's research has evolved to a second-generation Zitron technology that is making its debut in Alpha Series.
CopperCONN connectors are with pure copper contacts have much higher conductivity than that brass. The difference is clearly audible.
Highest-Purity Copper for Supreme Conductivity
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 comes with a written certification of purity.
Hollow-Tube VTX Conductors: A Shunyata Exclusive
Shunyata Research's exclusive VTX conductors are made in the form of hollow tubes. Since current can only travel through the outer rim on the wire, no skin effects or random eddy currents occur. VTX conductors are made from pure OFE C10100 or Ohno (single-crystal) copper.
