Default Shunyata Venom 14 Digital Videos

I made a couple of "home movies" demonstrating the noise reduction capability of the new Shunyata Research Venom 14 Digital power cables.

These new NR-series of power cables were specifically designed for use with DACs, disc players, network bridges, streamers, NAS', routers as well as power supplies for digital components and digital "front ends".

Video 1 demonstrating using a single V14D in series and then in parallel:
https://youtu.be/42hmSXhiblc

Video 2 demonstrating the addition of a second V14D to a common power strip:
https://youtu.be/-X9gYpmtlxE

The new Venom 14 Digital cables were a development that spun out of Shunyata Research's sister company for medical imaging, Clear Image Scientific, and utilize the same technology in Shunyata's new line of Venom NR-V10 and V12 power cords. So, you can expect comparable levels of noise suppression with those products when used with your amplifcation components and power distribution systems.

Double cool. How much are the cables? And would it be recommend for a DAC?

thanks for posting,

Bob

Thanks, Dan!

They're impressive with the impact they have in the stereo system as well.

The Venom NR-10 and V12 have also made quite a significant improvement to my system, both with respect to performance and also with respect to the quaity of the presentation.

The are very reasonably priced at...$195.

BTW, the NR "cylinder" on the C7-version plug may not fit into the C7 receptacles of some devices, e.g. my Mac Mini when an Ethernet cable is installed. The diameter on the plug cylinder is too large; and there's not enough space between both receptables for both to fit There may also be a problem when fitting the C7 plug into an Apple TV, as well.

No worries, though! One can order a "custom" Venom 14 Digital with the NR filter module built into the AC plug end (the end that goes into the AC mains). The business end of the plug will then be a normal-sized, small C7 or C7P plug, and fit just fine into your devices.

BTW, these power cords really take the video image quality of your HDTV to another level as well. And, as they also reduce the noise of anything else that is plugged into the same power distributor as the HDTV, plugging one in to power your TV will also reduce the noise and improve the sound quality on your AVR as well if its plugged into the same power distributor.

Cheers.

Hi Bob,
Yes, you could use these for your DAC, but based on input I've read from Grant regarding various classes of power cables for use with DACs, if your budget allows, I'd recommend using the new Venom NR-V12 for an extra $155, or the NR-V10 for your DAC if either fits within your budget. I'm presently using the NR-V12 for my DAC, and its VERY impressive. The Schiit Gumby took a big step up in overall sound quality when I installed it.

Stephen,

Once again thank you for your excellent reviews. It's double good to run across someone who has the same ears I do.

I just ordered two Venom NR V12s.

Steven, Thanks for sharing these great videos demonstrating the noise reduction these power cords. I could use a few of these in my home theater system.

Bob.
