Theta NR


The Theta Series signal, digital, and power cables represent a pinnacle of scientific innovation, cementing Shunyata Research's reputation as a leading force in top recording studios and medical labs. Every element, from components to conductors, is meticulously crafted to push the boundaries of signal resolution, surpassing even the most elite products. These groundbreaking Theta Series offerings continue Shunyata Research's tradition of delivering unparalleled performance at price points that set new standards within their respective categories.


The signal and digital cable products in the Theta Series showcase a distinctive feature: continuous-cast Ohno copper, known for its exceptional purity. This type of copper undergoes a unique manufacturing process where it is drawn using heated molds, resulting in a single crystalline structure. Shunyata Research employs its exclusive PMZ (Precision Matched Impedance) process to extrude these Ohno conductors with a fluorocarbon dielectric and custom-shielding elements. This meticulous extrusion method ensures precise tolerances in the conductor surface, dielectric, and shield placement. The manufacturing process demands reduced machine speeds to achieve these exacting tolerances.

In addition to the exceptional Ohno copper, Theta speaker cables and power cords boast VTX™ (hollow core) and VTX-Ag™ (pure silver center) conductors. These conductors are further enhanced with an outer layer of ultra-pure OFE copper to optimize performance. Furthermore, all Theta cables undergo a rigorous 4-day conditioning process using Shunyata Research's advanced Kinetic Phase Inversion ProcessTM (KPIPv2TM). This process operates at a molecular level to condition conductor metals for improved performance. To complete the Theta Series, Shunyata employs custom-designed connectors and cold-soldered terminals, ensuring unparalleled performance that exceeds expectations regardless of cost.


Theta cables seamlessly integrate into your system, enabling it to effortlessly navigate sudden dynamic shifts in timing and frequency extension with remarkable nuance. They form a cohesive network within your electronics and speakers, allowing for a unified expression that speaks with clarity and coherence.

Similar to their Gamma Series counterparts but at a higher level, Theta cables enhance your system's coherence, ensuring everything is sharply defined without any distortion or harsh transients. These cables minimize perceived noise, revealing spectral and textural subtleties with precision. Unlike typical copper cables, Theta Series cables deliver exceptional dynamics and pitch-perfect frequency extension, rivaling even higher-priced alternatives. The larger gauge VTX™ conductors of Theta cables contribute to a weightier, more dimensional soundstage that fills the room with expansive audio.


Shunyata’s VTX-Ag cables are uniquely constructed with both an inner, center conductor made of pure silver and an outer concentric ring conductor made of pure copper. It’s made using the finest fluorocarbon insulation to minimize dielectric absorption and re-radiation which translates to an improvement in resolution and clarity. VTX-Ag delivers the speed and clarity of silver and the midrange warmth and three dimensional power in the lower octaves of copper without imparting any of the negatives associated with either metal. – The best qualities of silver and copper combined
‌‌ArNi® is a type of wire created by Shunyata Research designed to be the finest quality wire available for audio purposes. It begins with the highest purity of copper available – OFE C10100 or Ohno (single crystal). Then it is formed in virtual hollow tubes eliminating skin effects and eddy current distortions. A premium fluorocarbon insulation minimizes dielectric absorption and re-radiation, greatly improving resolution and clarity. In addition, the wire undergoes our proprietary KPIP™ process.
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. Certified by ASTM F68 ‌‌C10100.

Fluorocarbon dielectrics are usually only found in wire used in the aerospace industry, satellites and only the most expensive audiophile cabling. It has special electrical characteristics; very low dielectric absorption, high dielectric strength and exceptional heat resistance.  When used in audio and power cables is reduces the perception of dynamic compression and it improves sonic low-level resolution and clarity.

Audiophile Grade Connectors

Shunyata’s audiophile-grade AC connectors are specially crafted from high-grade solid brass to accommodate large 10-gauge conductors and feature gold-plated pure copper contacts in the IEC connectors. This combination results in lower resistance and ensures a lifetime of exceptional sound.

Hermetically Sealed
Within robust polycarbonate head-shells, the connectors are hermetically sealed with an electrically inert compound that protects the contacts and wires from corrosion. The compound also ensures that the wires cannot become loose, fray, or pull out from the head-shell. This guarantees reliable performance that does not degrade over time.


Shunyata Research’s proprietary Kinetic Phase Inversion Process includes four days of continuous KPIP v2™ processing which refines conductor metals at a molecular level. This dramatically reduces burn-in time and significantly improves sonic performance, delivering a relaxed and life-like presentation. When compared to the original process, KPIP v2™ represents a dramatic performance upgrade on par with a component-level upgrade.
