Shunyata Research Ztron Cobra Digital (XLR) 3ft/1m Digital cables
Manufacturer's Description:Shunyata PowerSnakes line of signal cables possess a series of technology advances unlike any cable product in the industry. These advances in science allow all PowerSnakes interconnects and speaker cables to offer state-of-the-art performance at prices that cannot be equaled by any competitor. Instead of pouring money into marketing, packaging, trade-in programs and lopsided dealer discounts, Shunyata has spent the vast majority of its intellectual property on new definable material technology and science innovation. The results of these investments are apparent in the range of PowerSnakes Signal Cable Technologies below, as well as their real-world retail prices and hear-it-to-believe-it performance! Zi-Tron Technology This is the point where Shunyata Research scientist Caelin Gabriel's study, development and knowledge deliver a truly ground-breaking technology in terms of its unmistakable, dramatic impact on performance. The Zi-Tron technology is applied in the Cobra, Python and Anaconda PowerSnakes signal cables. The Zi-Tron technology is the main component in allowing the Cobra, Python and Anaconda model cables to out-perform cables costing twenty-times their price. The engineering and detailed process involved in developing this new technology is patent-pending. A Summary The Zi-Tron technology reduces dielectric distortion within a signal wire by neutralizing the electric charge differential between the signal conductor and the insulating dielectric material. This is accomplished with the use of a conductive shield that surrounds the signal wire's dielectric material. The electric signal carried by the conductor is also imposed upon the shield through an electric field compensation circuit. The electric field of the conductor and the electric field of the shield oppose one another and create a near zero equivalent electric force within the dielectric material. This effectively neutralizes the charge/discharge distortions created by the dielectric material in the presence of an alternating signal. Since the conductor and shield both carry the signal electric field, they dynamically track the varying alternating signal to create a continuous net zero charge differential within the insulating dielectric. VTX WIRE: Virtual Tube Wire Geometry Shunyata Research is well known for its use of ultra-complex wire geometries that have evolved from the early Matrix Geometry to the patented Helix Geometry and most recently the CX geometry used in Shunyata's award-winning power-cord line. These geometries ability to measurably reduce signal resistance, self-induced reactance and electro-magnetic interference is well documented and remains a core element of all Shunyata designed wire products.
