Synergistic Research Atmosphere X Series Alive Digital Interconnects (Level 1)

$695.00$1,595.00

The first interconnects in the Atmosphere X lineup features a new UEF Matrix Shield developed not by measuring the system or the cable’s performance but by assessing how our brains respond to music with and without this new shield topology. Also new to ALIVE is a conditioning process and UEF Quantum resonator technology first developed for our BLUE Fuses. The result is one of the most musically satisfying cables we have ever built that also checks all the boxes Synergistic Research cables are famous for, including an ultra-low noise floor and “you are there” holographic realism.

Description

UEF Matrix Shield with Graphene

Matrix shielding.

Atmosphere X began when we started exploring ways to improve our UEF Shielding by applying UEF Technology first developed for our BLUE Fuses to Atmosphere Series cables. By placing UEF Tech in a grid pattern on the shields of Atmosphere cables we were able to dramatically lower the noise floor with a surprising increase in musicality or the subjective enjoyment of music. We then began a painstaking double-blind 6-month trial where we would listen to seemingly identical cables marked with random alphanumeric codes to conceal differing patterns of UEF Tech inside each prototype cable and record which options elicited the strongest responses among a control group of listeners. By gauging actual emotional response we were able to isolate grid patterns that better conveyed the essence of music. We would then build on these patterns to find additional patterns that performed better than the last. In this way, our latest shielding technology is highly evolved from anything we have ever done before with each shield pattern selected for its ability to not only lower a cable’s noise floor, but to also convey a greater sense of musical enjoyment. The net result is the most advanced shielding technology we have ever developed with each model in the Atmosphere X Series gaining a special shielding pattern that best compliments the geometries of ALIVE, EXCITE and EUPHORIA.
