Reference Power Cable Expressly Designed for Shunyata Power Conditioners: U.S.A.-Made Omega XC Delivers Superlative Performance and Sound, Includes Limited-Lifetime Warranty
Expressly designed to supply superlative-grade power to Shunyata power conditioners, and more of a component than a cable, the Shunyata Omega XC (20A) is optimized for high-current energy transfer. We're talking unprecedented engineering, sonics, and performance. No application-specific power cord at any price possesses Omega XC's abilities and build. And the U.S.A.-made Omega XC comes with as a set of three DFSS (Dark Field Suspension System) isolation devices and a burn-in adapter. The enhanced dynamics, scale, and timing in audio reproduction will startle you – no matter how many years you've been critically listening (or viewing). 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guaranteed.
The many reasons behind Omega XC's unprecedented prowess begin with its Dynamic Transient Current Delivery (DTCD) design, resulting in improved perceived pacing, dimensionality, and contrasts. Brand-new four-gauge VTX-Ag conductors (the largest conductor complement on the market for power cords) – comprised of the highest-grade silver with a coaxial surround of pure OFE copper – help deliver lifelike dynamics while maintaining rich tonal body and nuance. In addition, true carbon-fiber head shells lead to enhanced vibration management and lowered distortion. (And they are quite beautiful.) Lest we forget, Shunyata's exclusive CopperCONN pure copper connectors form an unbeatable low-resistance connection that unlocks the full measure of any component, amplifier or source. Last but not least, every facet of the Omega XC power cord has been refined to deliver measurably superior Dynamic Transient Current Delivery. Each part, conductor, noise circuit and and material inside the Omega XC allows for maximum throughput of instantaneous current. You will experience low-frequency performance from even the highest current amplifiers as well as contrasts unheard of outside of a live event.
Yes, Omega XC commands a premium price, but then again, its feats are without peer in the industry. We also know you want to hear just how amazing this power cable (complete with a Limited Lifetime Warranty and supplied with DF-SS Cable Elevators) is for yourself without risk. It's why we encourage you to try Omega XC in your own system with an in-home audition. If you're not completely satisfied, send it back to Music Direct without any hassle.
"At $7000, the Omega XC provides accurate tonality identical to that of the Sigma XC, but, as Nigel Tufnel of Spinal Tap would say, 'These go to eleven.' Or to use an automotive analogy, the Omega is a turbo charger for those who want the extra 20 to 25 percent thrust that only a bruising 4-gauge cable can provide."

Omega QR's VTX-Ag conductors are the result of a 20-year design progression steeped in credible science and definitive measurement. VTX-Ag conductors use an outer tube geometry of the purest form of copper intended to bring out the purest tone and timbres of recorded instruments and voice. Omega QR's VTX outer core of pure copper surrounds an inner core of the purest form of silver. The inner Ag core conductor demonstrably improves macro-dynamics along with an incredible three-dimensional weight and timing in the lower octaves. When combined, the VTX-Ag conductors represent the greatest advance in conductor science of designer Caelin Gabriel's storied career.
Every facet of Omega QR power cord is refined to deliver measurably superior Dynamic Transient Current Delivery (DTCD). Each part, conductor, noise circuit, and and material inside Omega QR allows for maximum throughput of instantaneous current. Listeners will experience earth-shaking low-frequency performance from even the highest-current amplifiers as well as dynamic contrast unheard of outside of a live event. More than any other design parameter, Shunyata Research's skill in eliminating resistance and maximizing peak-current delivery is unmatched.
Shunyata Research has developed its own line of CopperCONN connectors that feature solid copper contacts and true carbon-fiber head-shells (Alpha and Sigma models) that have anti-vibration qualities. These connectors are not just beautiful; they functionally reduce micro-distortions due to the carbon fiber's unique energy absorbing vibration reduction qualities.
Kinetic Phase Inversion Process
Omega XC power cords are treated with Shunyata Research's proprietary Kinetic Phase Inversion Process. Four days of continuous KPIPTM processing dramatically reduces burn-in time and significantly improves sonic performance, delivering all the weight, power and dynamics critical to the life-like presentation of music and sound.
