EUPHORIA SX speaker cables start with Alive SX’s twin Silver Matrix geometries in parallel, plus Excite SX’s two hand-made pure silver Air Strings. We then added two additional pure silver Air Strings plus two Silver Matrix 5th-Gen Tricon geometries for a total of eight parallel speaker cable geometries per speaker wire run, or sixteen total for the pair. The inclusion of four Air Strings and two 5th Gen-Tricon’s per channel means you hear increased detail in a larger and more expansive sound field. Euphoria SX is a closely scaled-down expression of our flagship Galileo SX speaker cables. Making it the most complex speaker cable in the Atmosphere SX lineup with 4 x 2nd Gen- High Current Silver Matrix Geometries, 4 x 5th Gen-Tricon Geometries, 4 x 99.999% Pure Silver Air String geometries hand made in our California factory. Exclusive to Euphoria SX is the inclusion of our patented SR Ground Plane technology first developed for PowerCell line conditioners and later adapted for cable applications in our Galileo SX Series Cables and SRX power cords to deliver a lower noise floor with an impressive holographic scale. Expressly developed for the Atmosphere SX loom are small Carbon Fibre UEF Tuning Discs placed along strategic points on the cable’s shield and inside connectors to lower the noise floor and increase resolution without harshness. Euphoria SX further builds on Excite SX’s system matching versatility with the addition of a Silver Galileo UEF Tuning Bullit for more detailed sound with air, to the included Galileo SX Gold UEF Tuning bullet’s warmth and liquidity. Listen to EUPHORIA speaker cables in your system with the Silver and then with the Gold filter and select the option that creates music in your system. Lastly, EUPHORIA’s 16 cable geometries are individually isolated from mechanical resonance and vibrational feedback to enhance clarity in the sound field. User Tip: very few systems, if any, benefits from all one color or another. Most systems will sound best with a majority of either Gold or Silver bullets, but with a component or two that perform best with the opposite color. Gallio SX Gold Tuning Bullets capture warmer sound with liquidity over pinpoint spatial detail. Galileo SX Silver Tuning Bullets are detailed and dynamic with a pinpoint focus at the expense of liquidity. All systems benefit from a majority of either Gold or Silver with a component or two that will sound best with the other option. Tuning individual cables with Galileo SX Tuning Bullets achieves the best sound characteristics of both Gold and Silver with a bespoke balance unique to your system.
UEF Matrix Shield with Graphene
The previous Atmosphere X Series Cables started as an experiment to explore ways of improving UEF Shielding by placing UEF Tech at strategic grid points on the shields of Atmosphere cables, now called Matrix Shielding. Matrix Shielding arranges UEF elements on a grid pattern of the cable shield to lower its noise floor. Atmosphere SX refines Matrix Shielding further by using new Carbon Fibre UEF Tuning Discs developed expressly for Atmosphere SX to enhance the loom's ability to cancel noise that would otherwise cause high frequencies to sound harsh or fatiguing. As a result of our ongoing research into UEF Shielding, we have pushed the resolution envelope when voicing Atmosphere SX by developing new Carbon Fibre UEF Tuning Discs for a more holographic sound with enhanced resolution and musicality.
SRX Long Duration High Voltage Conditioning.
After perfecting the most natural-sounding and holographic cables in our history, we set out to take them further with a new high voltage conditioning process that applies a sweeping frequency plot for an extended duration. We experimented with dozens of frequencies in different combinations over a prolonged time period before landing on just the right mix. We even built a new Tesla Coil to handle the excess heat generated during long conditioning sessions. Once finalized, the SRX conditioning process created holographic realism and timbrel accuracy far beyond our previous Tesla Coil conditioning protocol.
UEF Cell and Blue Tuning Bullet
Atmosphere X Euphoria interconnects and speaker cables integrate the same Patent-Pending UEF Cell technology used in our Flagship Galileo UEF series. Within Carbon Fiber enclosures, these Unified Energy Field Cells are comprised of precious metal foils with Teflon and Japanese Silk dielectrics. UEF components, including Graphene, are applied directly to the signal and shields, lowering the noise floor and allowing the musical information to move through the cable unimpeded by spurious interference and signal reflections. The result is music that is uncompressed, visceral, and live.
Gold and Silver SX Tuning BulletsWe’ve completely reformulated and re-voiced our Galileo Tuning Circuits with new technology originally designed for the new ultra-resolution and musical Galileo SX line of cables. Now Silver Bullets have more detail combined with greater warmth than the prior Galileo Silver Bullets while the Gold Bullets impart even greater musicality and liquid smoothness with a touch more air and detail than before. For best results, it is recommended that you first allow any Synergistic Research cable to settle into your system for 72 to 96 hours without removal or handling and without Gold or Silver Bullets attached. Then listen first with Gold, and then with Silver bullets, and pick the option that makes the best music in your system.
Atmosphere Excite SX provides the RED UEF Tuning module while Atmosphere Euphoria SX comes equipped with both the RED and BLUE UEF Tuning Modules.

Integrated Frequency Transmission (IFT)
A Better Way to Bi-Wire
When bi-wiring was introduced in the late 1970s amplifiers and speakers benefited due to the relatively modest performance of the speakers and cables of the day. Electronics, speakers, and cables were simply not as advanced as they are today. In fact speaker cables were little more than unshielded 16 gauge lamp cord made from cheap copper with poor dielectrics so doubling up on zip wire was better than nothing. Unfortunately as electronics and speakers advanced over the intervening years most speaker cable designs have not kept pace where bi-wire terminations are concerned. For today’s high end speakers to perform their best it’s absolutely critical they be fed a phase correct signal where all frequencies are in perfect phase alignment across the frequency spectrum. Low level information relating to spacial queues, holography, image placement, low frequency impact and control as well as high frequency extension without brightness are all aspects of a phase correct signal reaching your speakers. We discovered nearly 20 years ago that it’s difficult enough to get one cable in perfect phase alignment across the entire frequency spectrum, much less to get two cables running in parallel while feeding the very different loads of high frequency and low frequency binding posts on a bi-wire speaker. When signal is split between higher and lower frequencies in separate cable runs phase distortion is inevitable. IFT (Integrated Frequency Termination) provides speed, PRAT (Pace, Rhythm and Timing) and high frequency extension in perfect alignment with low frequencies better than any bi-wire cable geometry can. This is because the full spectrum of frequencies and phase information is present in the cable’s entirety, and not split into separate runs which changes the signal’s phase alignment when frequencies are segregated into separated cable runs.
