Element Tungsten is the first power cord in our new Element Series to feature tungsten in the signal path, and is the first power cord in the world to use pure tungsten as a conductor. If you’re not already familiar with the unique sonic characteristics of tungsten, you may wish to read this. To summarize, during our 6-month double-blind listening test, we discovered Tungsten to be the most holographic sounding of all elements tested. Listening revealed exceptional high frequency extension and note decay that comes from a lower perceived noise floor. Perhaps this is why tungsten’s sound is so holographic. In fact, many people feel the real magic starts with Tungsten due to its amazing portrayal of live music, presented in realistic space and scale, with note decay that is closer to a live event than any other single element.

Beginning Jan. 1, 2014, all Active SR cables are shipping with their new UEF Tuning Modules. In this new higher performance series only Gray and Silver Tuning Modules are available (Black has been discontinued as it was little used in practice.) These new modules can be used with any older Active Cables which had provision for Tuning Modules, and are available separately at a cost of $125 per cable for two modules ($249 for a pair of cables - 4 modules).
Element Tungsten is 100% handmade in our California factory, build time is 4 1/2 hours.
