Excite SX builds on Alive SX‘s two parallel Silver Matrix geometries and adds two additional hand-made Air String geometries of pure 6-9’s silver per speaker cable for a total of four cable geometries per speaker cable run, or eight cable geometries per speaker cable pair. The Air Strings’ create a significant boost in detail and holographic realism. We then apply the same High-Frequency Long Duration Conditioning Process originally developed for our state-of-the-art SRX cable loom. The same conditioning process that elevates our Purple Fuses making them the world’s highest performance fuse for audio applications. To make voicing Excite SX to your system easy we include two Galileo SX Gold UEF Tuning Bullets. Simply listen to the cable with and without the Galileo SX Gold Tuning Bullet and pick the option that makes music in 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.
Gold SX Tuning ModuleWe’ve completely reformulated and re-voiced our Galileo Tuning Circuits with new technology designed for the new ultra resolution and musical Galileo SX line of cables. Now 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 your Synergisitic Research cable to settle into your system for 72 to 96 hours without removal or handling and without Gold Bullets attached. Then listen first with no Gold Bullet, and then with Gold bullets and pick the option that makes the best music in your system.
Atmosphere Excite SX provides the Gold SX Tuning module while Atmosphere Euphoria SX comes equipped with both the Gold and Silver SX Tuning Modules.
Gold SX Tuning Module’s Sonic Characteristics:
- Greater Musicality
- Liquid Smoothness
- More Air and Detail
Silver SX Tuning Modules are sold separately and can be used with Excite interconnects.

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.
