Shunyata Delta NR Power Cord



Pin It
  • The Delta NR power cord is the most affordable of the NR (noise reduction) power cords from Shunyata Research. NR power cords that have built-in filters that reduce power line noise. Delta NR features VTX™ (hollow-core) conductors and pure copperCopperCONN® connectors. The 10 gauge conductors make it ideal for high-power amplifiers and source components.

    The Delta power cables feature ultra-pure OFE copper, woven into Shunyata’s own VTX™ hollow-core conductors, which are then connected to Shunyata’s exclusive CopperCONN® connectors. CopperCONN® connectors contain pure copper contacts — not the common plated brass and bronze contacts used in the vast majority of power cords at this price-point. The Delta NR is the first in Shunyata Research’s NR Series power cables to incorporate ‘on-board CCI™ filters’ that provide power conditioning to each individual component.

  • 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.

    Shunyata Research's exclusive ‌VTX™ conductors are made in the shape of virtual tubes. The core of the conductor is completely hollow minimizing skin effects and random eddy currents. They are produced usingOFE Alloy-101.

    ‌‌CCI™ filters have the unique ability to reduce component-generated power line noise without inhibitingDTCD™ (dynamic transient current delivery). This unique filter element prevents power line noise from one component contaminating the other adjacent electronic components. Shunyata Research’s ‌‌CCI™ filter modules consist of proprietary multi-stage filters that reduce power supply-generated noise without the use of heavy transformers, coils or large capacitors.

    Many audiophile grade connectors are made from brass or bronze. While some may get a plating of silver, gold or rhodium, the majority of the current is carried by the contact’s base-metal. ‌CopperCONN®connectors contain pure copper contacts which has a much higher conductivity that brass. The difference in performance is clearly audible.

    ‌‌KPIP™ (‌‌Kinetic Phase Inversion Process) was developed by Caelin Gabriel after years of research into the underlying causes of various effects such as burn-in, wire directionality and the effects of cryogentic treatment. He discovered that there was 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.
