At Synergistic Research we focus on a total system approach to create synergy in your system. All aspects of performance are taken into account and because there's more to synergy than just cables, we've developed some of the world's most innovative solutions like our PowerCell line conditioners and Acoustic ART room treatments and MiG resonance control footers. Of course audio cable and power cords are one of the biggest contributors to system performance second only to room acoustics so we pioneered several ground breaking technologies like Active Shielding with air dielectrics and custom tunable cables with Enigma Tuning Circuits to get you closer to the music than ever before.
The SR Grounding Block was engineered to improve ground performance on our new Atmosphere Series interconnects and speaker cables, as well as all SR products with external ground plane connections like Tranquility Base isolation platforms, FEQ and Atmosphere wave generators.
Since launching HFTs at the 2013 RMAF we’ve exhibited in Munich, Denver, Las Vegas, San Francisco, and Newport Beach where we routinely take best sound at show. One secret to success under difficult trade show conditions? Continually evolving and revised HFT placements that build on the success of our original HFT Level I through Level IV guidelines.
The story of Atmosphere… Atmosphere began when our lead designer Ted Denney contemplated why system’s seem to sound better late at night and worse mid-day. As a pioneering designer of the first high performance power cord, the original AC Master Coupler of 1994, and his later work in 2007 to develop the world’s first patented non-current limiting AC filter found in our PowerCell AC line conditioners, […]
