Powersnakes Taipan VX is the least expensive cable in Shunyata Research's evolving PowerSystem approach to power cabling that incorporates Shunyata Research's patented FeSi-1000 noise reduction compounds. The materials science based technology applied within the Taipan VX is protected by two patents: #6,242,689 and #6,545,213.

Ideally used with digital electronics - the Taipan VX provides dramatic reductions in perceived playback noise-levels. This quality allows both sound and visuals to appear with distinctly enhanced levels of resolution and background silence. The Taipan VX restores much of what digitally generated noise strips away from the realistic tone, texture and timbre that exists in live music and visuals.
