VENOM HC

Shunyata Research

Shunyata Research's original VENOM-3 power cord became an industry legend due to its incredible performance and low price. Shunyata Research's VENOM HC represents the finest performer in designer Caelin Gabriel's series of reasonably priced power cords.

Standard length of cable is 1.75 metre.
Please contact us for custom lengths.

The VENOM HC was designed using Shunyata’s exclusive DTCD™ measurement analysis. The VENOM HC is similar in appearance and construction to the VENOM-3, however new custom molded connectors were designed to accommodate the significantly larger conductors. The massive molded AC connectors showcase the internal termination quality and heavy gauge solid brass contacts. The outline of the VENOM HC’s massive, spiraling OFC conductors can be seen under the extremely flexible dark blue outer jacket.

If your system demands require a high-current power cable, there is no better value in high-performance audio than the VENOM HC!

Pure OFC Copper Conductors

  • Oxygen free copper
  • Large 10 Gauge Conductors

Shunyata Designed Molded Connectors

  • Solid Brass Contacts (not folded metal)
  • Nickel Plating for Corrosion Protection
  • Superior Contact Grip
  • Crimped and soldered connections

DTCD™ Tested

  • Designed using the Shunyata Research DTCD™ Analyzer
  • Ensures maximum instantaneous current capacity

Safety Assurance

  • Continuity and Polarity Tests – by two technicians
  • HiPOT Tests for each cable
  • Cable spools tested for insulation breakdown @ 4,000 VAC

OVERVIEW

While the VENOM-3 is ideal for higher-end source components and the VENOM-3 performs exceptionally with lower cost peripherals; the VENOM HC is the heavy-hitter of this triad due to its ability to deliver massive current to power conditioners (such as Shunyata’s own HYDRA and VENOM PS8) and to the world’s most power hungry amplifiers.

APPLICATIONS

Ideally for use with:
– HYDRA power conditioners
– Power amplifiers
– High-Current Class A preamplifiers
– Other off-brand power distributors/conditioners

TECHNOLOGY

‌‌OFE Alloy 101

‌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.
