The Shunyata Research Venom PS10 Power Distribution Strip Delivers Clean Power to 10 Outlets, with Improved High-Current Performance for Reference-Level Sound
Clean power is essential for optimizing the performance of your system. The Shunyata Research Venom PS10 Power Distribution Strip offers an unbeatable combination of remarkable value, measurable noise reduction, and stunning industrial design. The Venom PS10 dramatically exceeds the value of Shunyata's former award-winning power distributor, the PS8, by adding two outlets, improved high-current performance, and a noise-reducing high-current 20-amp power cord for the wall connection — all part of a one-price package.
Every part and material in the PS10 has been meticulously engineered for maximum peak-current transfer, as evidenced by its massive peak and continuous current ratings. With its powerful 20-amp capability, the PS10 will support entire systems, massive high-current amplifiers, and everything in between.
The outlets in the PS10 are high-performance, triple-wide contact outlets that hold power cord pins with a vicelike grip, optimizing peak current transfer and creating the most secure connection possible. It nearly impossible to dislodge the power cords — unless they are removed by hand. Overall, the PS10 highlights the critical relationship between clean, uninterrupted power, and getting the best performance possible from your home-entertainment system.
Topping the list of value-added parts and materials in the PS10 package is the incredible high-current, noise-reduction power cord. This 6-foot integrated Venom NR power cord drops measurable noise by >10dB across all frequencies, leading to improved detail and imaging, smoother highs, and more well-defined lows. Home theater systems using the Venom PS10 will display dramatically improved images. Film buffs will notice better depth perception, sharper color contrast, and clearer images across the screen and from front to back. Audio fans will notice better clarity and sonic definition.
Venom PS10 comes equipped with a custom-manufactured Carling electromagnetic breaker. These are superior in performance to fuses or thermal breakers, and are typically not found in products in the PS10's price class. This electromagnetic breaker silently protects against over-current conditions that could harm electronics. (This safety breaker conveniently resets at the touch of a button.)
Caelin Gabriel designed the PS10 to be Shunyata Research's finest value, not only among its own power distributors, but in the entire marketplace. The design and build of the PS10 illustrates why Shunyata Research has dominated the power-line category for the past 20 years. Shunyata products are used all over the world to provide clean power in recording studios, hospital and medical environments, and in consumer electronics systems of all types. The design of the Venom PS10 reflects improvements that have been built on decades of research and real-world performance.
DTCD Analysis, for example, is a technique that measures instantaneous current through low-impedance electrical conductors and contacts. Shunyata Research uses it to optimize the design, specification, and construction of parts and materials to ensure maximum current delivery performance. Each part, conductor, noise circuit, and material allows for maximum throughput of instantaneous current.
Listeners will experience staggering low-frequency performance from even the highest-current amplifiers, as well as dynamic contrasts rarely heard of outside of a concert setting. Shunyata Research's skill in eliminating resistance and maximizing peak-current delivery remains unmatched.
Like all Music Direct products, the Shunyata Research Venom PS10 Power Distribution Strip comes with the 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guarantee.
Shunyata Research's exclusive NR (Noise Reduction) technology is a multistage filter network that measurably reduces power-line and component-generated noise, producing greater sonic clarity and enhanced purity of tone. It delivers a stunning background of silence to recordings, allowing the listener to hear intricate, subtle details. Every nuance of meaningful content is revealed, bringing to life the music's most consequential moments, giving the listener the sensation of being in the same room as the performers.
Kinetic Phase Inversion Process
KPIP (Kinetic Phase Inversion Process) was developed by Caelin Gabriel after years of research into the underlying causes of various effects such as burn-in, wire directionality, and the effects of cryogentic treatment. He discovered that there was 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.
Copper of the Highest Purity
Shunyata Research uses only the highest purity of copper available for the production of its wire products. 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 (certified by ASTM F68 C10100).
Power distributors react similarly to power amplifiers in terms of their sensitivity to vibration. Using the Shunyata vibration analyzer, Caelin Gabriel developed the Shunyata Isolation Footer, which possesses excellent measured vibration dampening characteristics.
