Designed to handle even the highest-powered amps, Alpha NR’s unprecedented capability extends to Shunyata’s Kinetic Phase Inversion Process (KPIP) – a groundbreaking conditioning method that not only eliminates the need for time-consuming burn-in on your end but elevates the overall fidelity of your system. You will hear invaluable sonic benefits – blacker backgrounds, lifelike detail, inner depth, explosive dynamics, revealing textures – when listening to music with Alpha NR in your setup. And now, you won’t have to wait hours and hours for it to happen.
Loaded with patented technology, exclusive metal treatments, and customized parts that far surpass the construction of competitive products, U.S.A.-made Alpha NR cords are comprised of ultra-pure OFE copper woven into massive, eight-gauge VTX hollow-core conductors linked to CopperCONN connectors. The latter contain pure copper contacts that claim higher conductivity principles than the common plated brass and bronze contacts. Advanced fluorocarbon dielectrics and sonic welding that mitigates junction points round out a cable whose noise-reduction capabilities can not only be measured, but felt during the listening experience.
“The Sigma and Alpha NR Series AC cables have continued Shunyata Research’s move to greater noise reduction, definition, and transient speed from a lusher, fuller sound that characterized their earlier CX Series of AC cables circa 2009.”
