The Python is a superb cable suitable for use just
about anywhere is a high resolution system. The noise
reduction capabilities of the patented FeSi-1000 compound
makes it particularly suitable for digital components.
You'll hear a much blacker background, and reduction of both
noise and grain.

Shunyata Python Alpha
Here are just a few of the
comments we've received from satisfied PowerSnakes
" My Python cable arrived today. Even though the
Python was intended for my Sony SCD-1 SACD player, I plugged
it into my amp for break-in purposes. WOW!!! An instant,
VERY significant level of improvement in my system's sound
quality. It will take an army, and then some, to get this
thing off my amp - unreal improvement!!! And the break-in
has just started!"
"I have 9 pythons and a Hydra in my
audio/home theatre system and I don't have to tell you how
awesome it sounds.... You have a customer for life."
- Dan M.
"I installed the PowerSnakes after 100 hours of burn
in. I must say its improvement over my old Synergistic research
cables is much more than I imagined. At moments, CD
playback felt almost like listening to LPs with super dynamic
range and no background noise. The differences they wrought
seem greater than the improvements of SACD over CDs".
do to the sound is foundational and monumental. A lot of
people laughed when I told them I was buying power cords
that cost as much as my CD player, amplifier, or speakers.
I have not heard super-expensive players that wrought this
amount of improvement over the Meridian. In that way,
the PowerSnakes are really paradoxical and comical in the
way they twist traditional hi-fi wisdom on its head.
Perhaps 50 years ago, hi-fi systems sounded much better,
without the amount of RFI and EMI generated today, requiring
a measure as drastic as the King Cobra to remove".

"By the way, the King Cobra is a truly remarkable product.
Do you know that when I plugged it in the wall, the TV (
which is on another side ) suddenly had much deeper colors
and sharper contrast. I know this may sound like I am losing
my sanity, but it is actually true. Now the sound coming
out of those dear B & W's got very full - I demonstrated
Sarah Brightman's "Phantom of The Opera" for friends.
It is quite a sensational cord, now I am glad I got this
instead of the Electraglide - which I almost purchased.
The problem is - if one raves too much about a " power
cord ", people will just call it hyperbole and
think the brain has had too much Espresso café. This is,
however, the first product I have used, where the hype is
running far below its performance. I still don't
understand how one product, the KC, can be soooo much better
than the others in it's class. I wish I understood
the technical logic. If the patent number is available,
I'd like to read it".

cords arrived today, as did my BASS, QUIETNESS, and DETAIL.
After all the hyperbole about power cords and such, it is
amazing the difference these have made out of the box.
I have the Mamba going to the Plinius, which now has oodles
of bass, and the Black Mamba going to the BAT Vk5i preamp,
because the 360s DAC needs a right angle connector to plug
into it's base. I am even considering asking you to
check with the maker to see if
he can create a Black Mamba with a right angle connector,
just because of the incredible quietness. Honestly
Galen, since I plugged the Plinius in as a replacement for
the Sunfire, I have never heard such an immediate change
in the complete sound
of the system. This is the first time that the von
Schweikert 4.5's have done all that they can do from top
to bottom, which I now realize is more than I have ever
heard. These are THAT GOOD to pay the price.
I only wish that I could afford the upper end cords, which
would be nice to hear that difference. If you, or
Shunyata, ever want testimonials, I would love to kick in
a small paragraph!
for upgrading my whole system".
