Shunyata's Python Interconnects are the first product to introduce the Signal Propagation Distortion Reduction (SPDR) technology. The SPDR science dwarfs the performance impact of any other material, geometry or design traditionally associated with the manufacture high-end signal cable products. Shunyata's significant science advances make the Python a lethal weapon in the war on all over-priced wire designs.
The Python interconnects were designed, tested and proven to outperform the crowded cost-no-object cable category currently on the market. Rather than set its retail prices astronomically high based on perceived performance, Shunyata Research has committed to reversing the trend of inflated pricing in the cable industry. The Python Interconnects are priced reasonably so they will find a welcome home in all serious playback and recording environments.
Shunyata uses a specially designed electromagnetic field to align the molecular structure of their copper conductors. Applied during the extrusion process, the result is greater coherency and superior conductivity.
Alpha Cryo Process
Shunyata Research cryogenically treats all wire and electrical contacts used in the production of its signal cables. A state-of-the-art computer controlled chamber is used to lower the temperature of the contents to -320 degrees Fahrenheit. This exclusive process uses a proprietary combination of gases to enhance the cryogenic treatment.
CDA-101 copper is the highest purity copper available, with signed certifications to verify its authenticity and purity. Shunyata Research exclusively uses CDA-101 copper for their electrical products, from signal cables to power cords and power conditioners.
VTX Wire Geometry
Long known for ultra-complex wire geometries which measurably improve conductivity and desirable characteristics, Shunyata has developed a new geometry which greatly reduces the so-called “skin-effect”. Skin-effect is a distortion caused by differing speeds of conductivity between the center of the conductor (where the bass travels) and the outer part or skin of the conductor where the midrange and treble travel. Skin-effect plagues both stranded and solid core wire, causing smearing, timing and phase errors, in some cases even changes in tonal balance. The ideal conductor is a hollow tube, but this is wildly impractical in the real world, so using DTCD analysis, Shunyata created a new type of wire geometry which is a “virtual tube” greatly reducing skin effect and improving conductivity.
