Shunyata Venom HC Power Cord - 1.75M 15A C15 IEC



Pin It

Shunyata Research's VENOM HC (High Current) represents the finest performer in designer Caelin Gabriel's series of reasonably priced power cords. While the VENOM-3 is ideal for higher-end source components and the VENOM-3s performs exceptionally with lower cost peripherals; the VENOM HC is the heavy-hitter of this triad due to its ability to deliver massive current to power conditioners (such as Shunyata's own HYDRA and VENOM PS8) and to the world's most power hungry amplifiers. The VENOM HC was designed using Shunyata's exclusive DTCD™ measurement analysis.

The VENOM HC is similar in appearance and construction to the VENOM-3, however new custom connectors were designed to accommodate the significantly larger conductors. The massive AC connectors showcase the internal termination quality and heavy gauge solid brass contacts. The outline of the VENOM HC's massive, spiraling OFC conductors can be seen under the extremely flexible dark blue outer jacket. If your system demands require a high-current power cable, there is no better value in high-performance audio than the VENOM HC!

The Venom High Current power cord is available right now with a 15A configuration. The VHC's massive gauge and affordable price allows it to be used with all high-performance electronic applications but because of its sheer size, it is an ideal power cord for amplifiers, pre-amplifiers, power conditioners and power distributors.
