    Shunyata Omega Interconnects and Speaker Cables

    I just watched the Altair grounding system marketing video. I thought I saw an Omega XLR coming out of the amps in Shunyata’s listening room.

    Further, a posting on another forum seemed to spill the beans that these are indeed coming soon.

    I wanted to start a thread for these new flagships. I’m sure they won’t be cheap but, offer a great value proposition as do all Shunyata’s products.

    Nice. When are you allowed to write about them?

    I assume Shunyata doesn't want to take away from the new Grounding products. At least for the next few months.

    Like a crystal clear window into the music. We were stunned by the upgrade over the Sigma V2’s. The IC between the dac and pre was jaw dropping difference. I didn’t think they would be THAT much better than Sigma V2.

    Thanks. But, what about the speaker cables? :-) I was curious if Caelin and team implemented their QR/BB tech on the Omega speaker cables.

    Somehow (if technically possible) to deliver the same benefits as it does to power cables.

    For speaker cables, transferring the current from the amplifier to driver using that QR/BB tech.

    Looking forward to reading more about these as time goes on.

    QR/BB "specificaly improves the performance of the power suplies commonly used in consumer electronic devices. These power suplies specificaly convert AC to DC". It "operates only in a power system where current is drawn in pulses" and it "must be positioned immediately prior to an AC input for the AC-to-DC power supply".

    I got that from the patent. So, no, it doesn't appear that that QR/BB can end up in their speaker cable as it solves a particular problem for an AC-to-DC power supply.

    Thanks.

    That said, it will interesting to read as what tech the Omega line has over Sigma V2.

    As an MIT user myself, I'm curious if Shunyata's tech has been able to make the networked cable (MIT, Transparent) a moot point if you will.

    It’s extremely rare to see reviews of cables that include meaningful measurements. These guys seem to have done exactly that:

    Alpha Audio NET - Megatest speaker cables – real measurements, samples and blind test!

    I think this gives us some insights into how well these competing technologies actually perform. Unfortunately the measurements only just scratch the surface though, so there’s only so much we can glean.

    Most impressive to me is the square wave reproduction that Shunyata achieved with Venom X. Most disappointing to me, as one who uses MIT speaker cables, it how poorly that MIT cable did with this. Transparent did a lot better.

    I realize that I haven’t actually addressed your point. I guess all I’m suggesting is that maybe Shunyata and others aren’t aiming to make networks moot as they feel there are bigger fish to fry. Regardless Shunyata seems to have hit the ball out of the park with Venom X. We should expect them to hit the ball out of our galaxy with the Omega signal cables.

    I’d imagine there’d be more extensive use of their existing technologies like TAP and HARP in the Omega vs the Sigma.
