    NEW - Shunyata Omega

    Omega QR power cord ($9,000).

    A virtual power conditioner in a power cord, Omega QR contains technology previously available only in our reference Hydra Typhon and Denali level power distributors. No power cord at any price possesses Omega QR's performance and patented technology.
    Official release is December 1st.

    Omega QR: Features and Design Highlights

    Patented QR/BB technology. Acts as a passive supercharger for high-current amplifiers and analog components - improves perceived timing, dimension and dynamics in sound
    Noise Reduction Circuit. Shunyata Research's next-generation noise-filtering for dramatic, measurable noise reduction. Omega QR performs as a single component power-conditioner.
    NEW VTX-Ag conductors. A center core of the highest grade silver with a coaxial surround of pure OFE copper deliver life-like dynamics while maintaining rich tonal body and nuance.

    Omega QR contains both differential and common mode noise reduction. The drop in perceived noise levels will startle any experienced listener or viewer.

    True carbon fiber head shells for improved vibration management and lowered distortion. And they are quite beautiful.

    Re: NEW - Shunyata Omega

    I was able to see, but not hear a prototype of this cable.

    It’s a cable and conditioner all in one so don’t let the price panic you, despite its retail tag

    Caelin and crew were passionate about it.

    I think it only comes in one size, and that’s a “Think Statement”

    Re: NEW - Shunyata Omega

    The Omega QR looks great! And, given Shunyata's history, should be a terrific PC. I would assume an entire line of Omega cables to follow.

    Caelin now going for the price stratosphere. I hope some of this technology trickles down to the next Sigma and Alpha lines.

    Re: NEW - Shunyata Omega

    They are beautiful but $18k for a pair of power cords is past my line in the sand. I will not dismiss them without hearing them but my current PC’s sounded better on my amps not connected to the Denali so I assume they need to be at Hydra level.

    Waiting to hear from you guys. I’m not asking my dealer to get a demo pair for something I’m unlikely to purchase.

    I wonder if there is audible improvement over a Triton and Typhoon combo? By audible, I mean ‘Wow. This is great.’

    Or, will there be an “EF” version for owners of Shunyata conditioners that don’t need the “conditioning “ aspect of the omega but , want the higher resolution it probably provides over a Sigma NR/EF.

    For example , having it from Denali/Triton to wall.

    If not, I think this cable is targeted at those customers who own high end pair of monoblocks but, prefer to plug them straight into the wall over using a conditioner. Or, have their amp/amps separated from their equipment rack front end gear which is plugged into its own conditioner of some kind.

    Also, considering the Denali 2000T is no longer produced.

    I also think this Omega QR power cable is Shunyata’s answer to the AQ Dragon.

    IMHO these are two top designers of power cables and products today (Caelin at Shunyata) and Garth at AudioQuest but, the hobby is subjective so, YMMV of course.

    Additionally , we can probably “guess “ that this is the first of many “Omega “ line of new flagship products from Shunyata.

    Perhaps Caelin will see this thread and chime on the new Omega QR and perhaps whats next from Shunyata Research.

    Gulp, still gasping for air, trying not to panic... where’s my paper bag?

    To me, this is a dangerous thing for Shunyata. If the Triton fits in the bulb in this cable, what have the huge boxes been for all these years? Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice,...

    In comparison, the Niagara is full of actual power conditioning circuitry. This is one of the reasons why I moved from Shunyata to AQ.
