Synergistic Research Element Copper-Tungsten-Silver Power Cable

The Synergistic Research Element line of products utilize trickle down technologies from the flagship Galileo research and development. There are three Element models. Each employs a specific loom material or combination of materials: Copper, Tungsten and the combined Copper/Tungsten/Silver (CTS). Each can provide a level of customization depending on your specific listening priorities and your system needs.

My focus here will be the top of the line Element CTS wire which is said to exhibit the best of all three materials. Please see the Synergistic Research website for additional specifications and information. I find their explanation of the development process behind the three models and how each material can impact the sound to be very interesting reading—especially their findings on Tungsten.

A key component of the Element series is the use of their “Active Shielded Air Dielectric” technology which manages reactive capacitance (signal and cable interaction) and overall shielding performance. Active shielding is not a new idea, but these folks have found a very efficient and effective way of implementing the benefits of this design choice.

This feature also includes optional “Enigma Tuning Bullets” which can be used for a second level of customization. There are three flavors of Bullets. Synergistic Research explains the differences in the following way. Based on my experience, these are over simplifications as the results are much more sophisticated, but they will give you a basic understanding of what is happening. I found this fine tuning to be very effective.

Silver – open & airy

Black – warm and rich

Grey – hybrid of the silver and black

Active Shielded Air Dielectric does require a source for its own power. This means that one mini power coupler (MPC) or wall wart is included for each pair of interconnects, each pair of speaker cables and each power cord.

 

Element Copper-Tungsten-Silver Interconnects – RCA/XLR with UEF Tuning Circuits

Element Copper Tungsten Silver combines the best traits of each element for the most balanced and highest resolution interconnect in the Element Series. Imagine the low frequency authority of copper, the holographic soundstaging of Tungsten and the refinement and resolution of silver combined in one cable. This is by far the highest performance interconnect we have ever manufactured excluding the Galileo System interconnects which are nearly 10 times the Element CTS’s price and arguably this is the highest performance interconnect option your can choose from any manufacturer at any price including flagship products from our competitors. Add a Galileo Universal Interconnect Cell and you truly have a state-of-the-art interconnect that comes very close to our flagship Galileo System cables.

  • Combines the best traits of Copper and Tungsten and Silver
  • Silver delivers the highest level of frequency information
  • The most balanced of all Element Series cables

Listening notes and findings for Element Silver:

“Silver has a deep soundstage in a well rounded polite and non offensive presentation. Absolutely no glare or grain in the upper registers. Balance is the word that comes to mind”

 

UEF Tuning Circuits

As with all Element Series cables start with Grey UEF Tuning Circuit first and allow the cable to settle in for at least 48 hours before experimenting with Silver tuning option. If after 48 hours you wish to open up the sound field and upper registers substitute Silver bullets.
