Synergistic Atmosphere UEF Demo Cable Rotation: save 35%!
One of the most popular cable series our customers have been evaluating through The Cable Library this year is the Atmosphere UEF series - the latest, greatest from Synergistic Research.
In fact these have been so popular that our Library counter shows that it is already time to refresh these demos. And so... here we go with a 35% reduction on ALL of our demo Atmosphere UEF interconnect and speakers cables!
See the list of available cables below. Here are our comments onthe Atmosphere UEF series:
The four cable series from Synergistic Research called "Atmosphere UEF" (models are simply "Level 1" to "Level 4") are flat out incredible performers offering a level of performance at pricing we would not have thought possible.
Here are some highlights:
A. This is the first non-Active Shielding high end cable series Synergistic has released since the 2nd half of the 1990's. Why? SR has developed what they call UEF technology. UEF stands for Uniform Energy Field, a concept based on the idea that everything in audio vibrates creating harmonic and sound wave confusion that congests and compresses the musical frequencies. The UEF products are intended to clean up this hash. As SR began applying the UEF concept to signal cables, it became clear that up to a certain point they could offer better performance for the money by incorporating UEF technology into their designs than by incorporating Active Shielding.
B. All of the Atmosphere UEF cables are thin, flexible, and black. The Level 1 interconnects are totally unassuming-looking and on special these start at a discounted $449/1m pair with RCA connectors, or add $130 for balanced XLR. But, no fooling, these cables offer a level of performance that can be compared to other interconnects at multiples of the price.
The companion Level 1 speaker cables are similarly skinny, black and unassuming and start at $579/8ft pair on this DEMO special offer.
C. It doesn't cost all that much to move up to the Level 2 cables where a "Silver Air String" conductor, scaled down from their top line Galileo Series cables, is added to the positive leg, and a skinny little outboard grounding wire is also added that connects the shield to a grounded AC outlet. The differences between Level 1 and 2 are not subtle. The Level 2 interconnects on Demo special start at $645/1m pair and the Level 2 speaker cables at $1840/8ft pair.
D. The Level 3 interconnects (from $970/1m pair on DEMO special) and speaker cables (from $2275/8ft pair DEMO special) add an additional "Silver Air String" conductor, built in "UEF filters," and a red "tuning module" (similar looking to those on all of their recent active designs). Performance? Another very big step up.
E. Finally at the top of the Atmosphere UEF series sits Level 4 with interconnects from $1620/1m pair on the DEMO special and speaker cables from $3245/8ft pair on DEMO special. Additional UEF filters, individually wrapped and shielded conductors, additional blue tuning modules, and yes, even more performance; close to the performance level of the top-line Galileo LE cables, at about 20% of the price on this DEMO special.
