Manufacturer's Description:

Element Tungsten was the surprise of our blind listening tests with unsurpassed soundstaging and holographic realism. Overall Element Tungsten is more resolved and palpable then copper and hands down the most realistic of all elements where three dimensionality is concerned.

  • The most holographic of all elements
  • Smoother frequency extension then Copper
  • Exceptional mid-range presence

Listening notes and findings from our exhaustive 6 month blind listening tests reveal Element Tungsten to be THE cable for anyone who wants a “you are there” experience from their favorite recordings; a cable suitable for upper end components capable of a high degree of resolution, Element Tungsten represents state-of-the-art performance at a real world price.

Enigma Tuning Bullets

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 $150 per cable for two modules ($250 for a pair of cables- 4 modules.
