Shunyata Venom 3 Power Cord



Pin It

The VENOM-3 power cord is likely the finest example of Shunyata Research's commitment to manufacturing products that deliver dramatic power system performance at a value price. Shunyata Research has invested heavily in custom molds and automation processes to create a high performance power cord that outperforms products that are 3-5 times the cost. The VENOM-3 is custom manufactured using Shunyata's exclusive, high performance molded AC connectors. These see-through connector designs display the attention to detail and craftsmanship that went into their construction and careful termination.

 Shunyata Research uses its own top-quality OFC copper conductors and a 100% coverage shield that isolates the critical "first few feet" of power cable from the strong fields of radiated high frequency noise from nearby electronics. The VENOM-3 is also extremely flexible and easy to place in even the most space-constrained areas and around any tight corner with ease which is a unique attribute in and of itself! The VENOM-3's massive 12-gauge conductors make it ideal for all source components and many integrated amplifiers. Pair it with the VENOM-HC on a VENOM PS8 power distributor for a complete high performance power system. If you have very high power amplifiers, use the VENOM-3 on the source components with the VENOM-HC on the amplifiers for the best price to performance value.
