Venom V10 XC UK Mains Cable

The Venom range of power cables provide objective, dramatic performance. The Venoms V10 XC is designed for use with mains conditioners.



There is no better example of specialised power cord engineering for high-current performance and value than the Venom 10 XC power cord.

Venom 10 XC can be used for any component application, but specializes in high-current delivery for use with power-distributors, amplifiers and pre-amps due to its linear design, massive conductor gauge and premium parts quality.

Dynamic Transient Current Delivery is critical to performance for high performance entertainment systems. All elements in Venom XC power cords, including the wires, contacts, dielectrics and junctions, are tested and optimized using Shunyata Research’s proprietary DTCD™ Analyzer. This optimization ensures outstanding low-frequency performance as well as dynamic contrasts akin to a live musical event. More than any other design parameter, Shunyata Research’s ability to provide measurable dynamic instantaneous current is unparalleled.

The Venom XC combination of exclusive features including OFE copper, shielded conductors, audiophile grade connectors and fluorocarbon dielectrics contributes to improved dynamics, timing precision, and low-level resolution while preserving the subtle tonal, textural, and timbral signatures that bring music to life.

Shunyata Research uses only the highest purity of copper available for the production of its wire products.  OFE Alloy 101 or C10100 is the highest grade of copper with a minimum 99.99% purity and a conductivity rating of 101% IACS.  OFE stands for oxygen-free electrolytic and supersedes the term OFHC (oxygen-free high conductivity).  C10100 is the only grade of copper that comes with a written certification of purity.

The Venom NR cable has 100% coverage shields that help to reduce RFI and EMI interference.  Shielded power cables help to prevent electrical noise from being coupled to sensitive interconnects.

The Venom NR features audiophile-grade connectors made from high-grade brass with the ability to accept very large 12 and 10 gauge power conductors.  The connectors are completely sealed with a potting compound that protects the contacts and wires from corrosion.  This also prevents any possibility of the wires becoming loose over time.
