  1. Shunyata Research is excited to announce the much-anticipated release of our all-new signal cables, comprised of three series: DELTA, ALPHA and SIGMA speaker cables and analog interconnects. These new signal lines and their namesake power cords now make it easier than ever to match cables throughout your entire system. All cables are currently in production, and orders are being taken now. The newest generation of cables from Shunyata Research builds on their vast experiences and accumulation of science-based technologies, while also introducing additional, cutting-edge advancements in cable architecture. Delta series utilizes Shunyata Research’s VTX conductors, STIS terminals, along with Ohno copper and advanced fluorocarbon dielectrics. Sonic welding mitigates junction points, while our KPIP process eliminates the anomalies associated with break-in and cable directionality. Alpha series continues with these features, while also including their internationally-patented ΞTRON® technology, and new, pure copper, or gold-plated pure copper, terminations. The new Sigma series adds the new, patent-pending TAP (transverse axial polarizer) and HARP technologies. All three series are designed and built to Shunyata Research’s exacting standards. Their revolutionary KPIP process unlocks the full potential of these cable systems so your customers experience all the power and musicality from their first listen. We believe these new cables will impress the most experienced listeners with exceptional fidelity, as well as a performance that conveys the detail, harmonic depth and finesse of a musical experience. Each series offers a level of performance that belies their price, and will overshadow some of the most expensive products on the market today.

  2. Venom MPC-12A and MPC-12C Power Distributor Promotion MPC-12C & MPC-12A Promotional Packages (starting at $2139): Tax-Season Savings! The VENOM MPC-12 is similar in function to our traditional power distributors in that it is intended for normal audio and video systems that are not specifically computer based audio systems. VENOM MPC-12C The VENOM MPC-12 "C" is designed specifically for computer-audio, video and music-server based systems. Computer-media based music systems use several digital or processing components associated with computers (server). These devices are often made with commodity power supplies that put out significant amounts of power line noise. The MPC-12C was designed specifically to segregate or “firewall” the computer or video related components -- preventing them from polluting the performance of your high-end analog components. The MPC-12 "C" is Shunyata Research’s most finely tuned power distributor in terms of its system specific design and function. Essentially, the MPC-12 contains two separate power conditioners starting from the power inlet. In section one, The MPC-12 "C" uses Shunyata’s finest CCI™ (Component-to-Component Interference) filter arrays to reduce noise and enhance performance while still allowing for maximum current-delivery to even the most power hungry amplifiers. The other side of the MPC-12 "C", employs a custom-manufactured hand-wound air coil which literally fire-walls intense computer or video generated noise from affecting the components plugged into the second bank of six high-current/Analog outlets. VENOM MPC-12A The MPC-12 "A" has two independent zones of 6 outlets each, for a total of 12 outlets. This allows for the normal segregation of analog and digital components or between amplifiers and source components. The "A" designation stands for audio although it can also be used in all forms of audio/video systems. The two isolated zones will be labeled "A/V Zone 1" and "A/V Zone 2”. At the core of the MPC-12 "A"are Shunyata’s latest generation of CCI™ (Component-to-Component Interference) filters. These powerful multi-frequency noise-filters provide exceptional isolation for electronics without interfering with DTCD™ (Dynamic Transient Current Delivery) or electronics power supply function. The MPC-12 "A" has none of the drawbacks commonly associated with traditional forms “power conditioning” yet provides all of the protection and noise isolation that benefit electronics systems of all types. Complementing the superior noise isolation in the MPC-12 "A" are dual 12 gauge OFE 101 copper conductors. This massive 9 gauge aggregate conductor set insures optimum DTCD™ performance for any and all high-current draw systems. Surge and spike protection are included in the form of Shunyata Research'’s Surge module, which has had a virtually zero failure rate since its inception. Putting these elements together in a 12 outlet, form-follows-function package makes the MPC-12 "A" an incredible value. For those looking at the next big step-up from Shunyata Research’s critically heralded PS-8 power distributor, the MPC-12 "A" delivers on that promise. For those with the audio-systems that combine one or two digital components such as a CD player or Transport and DAC, the MPC-12 "A" model makes the most sense. For those with computer audio or video centric systems, the MPC-12 "C" is the best choice. The MPC-12 “A” and “C” models also feature on-board surge, spike and over-current protection with a built-in status L.E.D. indicator. For a limited time, we are offering complete high-performance power-distribution packages on the MPC-12 series of power conditioners. These are available on both the MPC-12A and MPC-12C. This all-in-one package includes the high-performance option of the High-Current VENOM-HC or ALPHA HC power cable and the new SSF-38 (stainless steel feet).

  3. Berkeley Audio Design Alpha DAC RS FALL SPECIAL FREE SHUNYATA RESEARCH Zitron Alpha Digital Power Cable with Purchase ($995 value) "The Berkeley Audio Alpha DAC Reference redefines what we can expect from digital playback" -Robert Harley, The Absolute Sound (full review here) "The Berkeley Audio Design Alpha DAC Reference Series is a DAC for the ages. Delicacy, detail, and unparalleled transparency are hallmarks of the RS. Reproducing soft yet present background instruments as clearly as the lead guitar is something only the Alpha DAC RS has done in my system." - Chris Connaker, The Computer Audiophile (full review here) The Berkeley Alpha DAC Reference Series embodies everything Berkeley Audio Design knows about digital to analog conversion taken to an unprecedented level - a level that requires new design concepts and new components at the edge of what is possible. The result is an immediacy and presence of music reproduction that is simply real. They literally designed the Reference Series before it was possible to build it. Almost three years in development, the Alpha DAC Reference Series uses components designed to their specifications that previously were not commercially available. Several suppliers were not able to meet their requirements, which delayed the release of the Reference Series by more than a year. But those obstacles were overcome and now the Alpha DAC Reference Series is a reality.
