    They haven’t mentioned any. I think they’ve been having sales since last November.

    MSRP’s are:

    Delta v2 XC - $900
    Delta v2 NR - $998

    Alpha v2 XC - $1900
    Alpha v2 NR - $2000

    Sigma v2 XC - $3250
    Sigma v2 NR - $3500
    Two questions. I couldn’t find the answers on Shunyata’s web site.

    What is the difference between the XC and NR model in each version?

    Edit. Found answer in another thread.

    The purpose of the NR series of power cords is to power components, and to prevent noise from inside the power supplies of the amplification or source components, from coming back out, only to be re-distributed within the power conditioner to other componentry. This is why the NR filter is at the component end of the power cord; to reduce the noise at its source. This provides another level of component-to-component noise isolation.

    As the power distributor is not an amplification or source component with a power supply, it does not require an NR power cord.

    The NR series of power cords were also designed to provide NR for components that may be plugged straight into the wall, e.g. monoblocks, that may be located near speakers, and may not be close enough to connect to a noise reducing power distributor in an audio rack.


    What is the difference between the Sigma version at $3500 to the Omega QR at $9000?

    Thanks.
    The Omega QR has an in-line QR/BB device; the Sigma NR V2 does not. I don't know what other differences there may be between the two cables, e.g. AWG, construction, or materials technology, etc.

    I do know that the construction of the Omega QR is very complex and sophisticated and takes the manufacturing operator a full week to construct by hand. This is one of the reasons it costs more than the Sigma NR V2.

    Re: Shunyata Reference Series V2

    The Alpha V2 NRs (2 of them) and Sigma V2 NR that I've been testing here for the last 1 month+ plus
    are a significant leap ahead in all categories of imaging, tonal accuracy, pacing, soundstage in all 3 dimensions and good old-fashioned
    musical enjoyment. Let's just say they are extremely good and worth trying.

    If memory serves,the "XC" is also meant to be used if you want an umbilical between Typhon (QR and prior) and Triton (V3 and prior) from what Caelin told me.
