Shunyata Research has repeatedly earned its reputation for designing products with exceedingly high value and performance. The Venom NR-V12 and NR-V10 power cables are the most profound embodiment of this ethos to date, delivering dramatic, measurably superior performance.
Although affordably priced, the Venom NR power cords contain many of Shunyata Research’s most advanced technologies and finest custom-manufactured parts. As a result, the Venom offer objective performance benefits that simply do not exist outside of Shunyata’s own product range.
The Venom NR Series are our lowest price power cables that have built-in filters that deliver measurably lower power line noise. They also feature electrostatic shields to reduce radiated noise.
Standard length of cable is 1.75 meters.

WHAT IS AN NR POWER CORD?
The letters “NR” stand for “Noise Reduction”. Shunyata Research manufactures Noise Reduction power cords that contain filter circuits that measurably and dramatically reduce noise at specific frequencies common to the power line and electronic power supplies. NR power cords eliminate noise in two directions and deliver startling results when connected to electronics tasked with resolving low-level signals or improving visual images.
Shunyata Research’s NR power cords are used within the scientific community, medical imaging and heart surgery labs, and many world-renowned recording studios. The noise reduction technology used within NR power cords is non-reactive and non-current-limiting, making the NR power cords suitable for virtually any application where improved resolution of signals and visuals is the goal.
FEATURES AND APPLICATION SUGGESTIONS
Features of the Venom NR power cords include OFE copper conductors, RFI/EMI shielding, cryogenically treated metal contacts, top-quality AC connectors, and fluorocarbon dielectrics. These features are rare at their modest price points.
The proprietary Kinetic Phase Inversion Process (KPIP™) significantly reduces burn-in time and improves sonic performance.
The Venom NR-V12 is ideal for source components including video and digital processors, while the Venom NR-V10’s larger-gauge conductors are perfectly suited to high-current power amplifiers and power distributors.
The Venom NR power cords’ noise reduction and exclusive design set them apart from all other products in and well beyond their price category.
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.
CCI™ filters have the unique ability to reduce component-generated power line noise without inhibiting DTCD® (dynamic transient current delivery). This unique filter element prevents power line noise from one component contaminating the other adjacent electronic components. Shunyata Research’s CCI™ filter modules consist of proprietary multi-stage filters that reduce power supply-generated noise without the use of heavy transformers, coils or large capacitors.
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.
