Unprecedented Flexibility Allows Shunyata EF Power Cord to Fit into Narrow Spaces, Access Obstructed Inlets, Make Short-Angle Turns: And It Sounds Phenomenal Right Out of the Box. Perfect for components with a reduced IEC clearance.
Standard length is 1.75m (longer available on request), AU power plug and standard C15 (slimline) plug.
Consider the Shunyata Delta Extra Flexibility (EF) power cord the audio equivalent of a master yogi. Customised for electronics with obstructed power-inlet entries as well as setups that require a short-angle turn radius, the ultra-pliable Delta EF fits into the narrowest of settings and boasts unprecedented flexibility. Equipped with a unique power connector (EF-C15) specifically created for Delta EF and its Alpha EF sibling, this groundbreaking power cord benefits from small, slender dimensions without sacrificing any performance abilities. Full-sized CopperCONN connectors with pure copper contacts, hollow-core VTX conductors, and the capability to accept eight-gauge wire without any downsizing further distinguishes this fits-anywhere cord.
In addition to seemingly limitless ease of use, Delta EF delivers the near-reference-level performance offered by Shunyata's entire Delta Series. Chief among such benefits is Shunyata's Kinetic Phase Inversion Process (KPIP) – a groundbreaking conditioning process that not only eliminates the need for time-consuming burn-in on your end but elevates the overall fidelity of your system. You will experience more detail, harmonic depth, and dynamic subtlety when listening to music with Delta EF in your setup. And you won't have to wait hours and hours for it to happen. Delta EF is ready to go out of the box. So bend, twist, or rotate Delta EF to suit your system's needs.
“Shunyata Research Delta power cords are possibly the most ‘now’ thing you can use in audio. Thanks to a lot of products with cheap and nasty switch-mode power supplies pumping nasties into your local mains, good audio is fighting a losing battle for sound. Delta fights in your corner.”

KPIP (Kinetic Phase Inversion Process)
Shunyata founder Caelin Gabriel developed KPIP after years of research into the underlying causes of various effects such as burn-in, wire directionality, and cryogenic treatment. He discovered 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.
OFE 101 Copper for Unsurpassed Purity
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.
CopperCONN Connectors: Hear the Difference
Many audiophile-grade connectors are made from brass or bronze. While some may get a plating of silver, gold, or rhodium, the majority of the current is carried by the contact's base-metal. CopperCONN connectors are with pure copper contacts that have a much higher conductivity than brass. The difference in performance is clearly audible.
