Give Your Turntable the Connection It Deserves: USA-Made Shunyata Delta Phono Interconnects Sound Great Out of the Box, Significantly Elevate Harmonic Depth and Resolution
Take no shortcuts linking your turntable to your phono preamplifier and get all the high-fidelity purity you deserve with the Shunyata Delta phono interconnects. Continuing the company's relentless quest to find and implement cutting-edge, science-based technology in the name of great audio, Delta phono interconnects benefit from Shunyata's Kinetic Phase Inversion Process (KPIP) – a groundbreaking conditioning process that not only eliminates the need for time-consuming burn-in on your end but elevates the overall fidelity of your system. Building on the construction of Shunyata's Venom Series, Delta phono interconnects feature Ohno continuous-cast copper hollow-core VTX conductors, advanced fluorocarbon dielectrics, and sonic welding that mitigates junction points. A separate CGC Delta grounding cable comes standard. And 16-gauge coaxial architecture gives Delta a further leg up on the competition. You will experience finer resolution, more harmonic depth, and added dynamic subtlety when listening to music with Delta phono interconnects in your analog setup. And you won't have to wait hours and hours for it to happen. The USA-made Delta is ready to go out of the box and will bring you drastically closer to your favorite records. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
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.
Ohno Wire and OFE 101 Copper for Unsurpassed Purity
Ohno wire, also called PCOCC, was invented in 1986 by professor Atsumi Ohno of the Chiba Institute of Technology in Japan. Copper wire is created by an extrusion process that pulls a rod of cold copper through a small orifice that creates multiple crystalline boundaries. By contrast, Ohno wire is made by a process using heated molds that cast a wire to form a single crystalline structure. Ohno wire is renowned for its pure sonic qualities. Similarly, 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.
ArNi® is a type of wire created by Shunyata Research designed to be the finest quality wire available for audio purposes. It begins with the highest-purity or copper available - Ohno (single crystal). It is then formed in virtual hollow tubes, eliminating skin effects and eddy current distortions. And finally, the wire undergoes Shunyata's proprietary KPIP process.
