Galileo SX

Power Cables

The refinemenet of perfection.

Galileo SX Power Cables start by adding an internal Active EM Cell to the ground as first developed in our 25th Anniversary Power Cord, the SR25. And by applying the same UEF material we first developed for our BLUE fuses to the internal EM Cell, we improve on all aspects of power cable performance including a lower noise floor, so you hear greater levels of detail with increased musicality thanks to a complete absence of noise. Frequency linearity from your connected components is also greatly improved so you hear a significant increase in frequency linearity and information that is balanced and musical. Also borrowing from the SR25 is the Galileo SX’s ability to ground the SR Active EM Cell to an SR Ground Block or Active Ground Block which increases system performance further still.

Next, we improve on the Galileo SXs Swiss made power-supply encased in carbon fiber that drives the cable’s Active EM Cell and the Active Shielding with UEF Technology from our BLUE Fuses. And again this lowers your connected component’s noise floor, so you hear greater detail, finesse, and impact. From the lowest frequencies to the air that rides above your soundstage and all frequencies in between. To say this is a major improvement would be an understatement.

Lastly, we applied our latest UEF Matrix Shielding first developed for our Limited Edition SR25 power cables for the single greatest improvement to Galileo SXs sound quality. By improving Active Shielding and Active EM Cell performance with Blue Fuse and SR25 technologies we affect greater noise cancellation at the shields and ground while maintaining the AC Signal with a minimum of dielectric interaction for the most effortless and lifelike sound of any Galileo power cable to date.

Active UEF EM Cell

Learn more about UEF EM Cells


Inside every Galileo SX Power Cable is an Active Uniform Energy Field or UEF EM Cell that acts like a micro PowerCell line conditioner for the connected component while providing clean power to the cable’s Active Shielding. This is especially beneficial in systems with digital components such as computers and DAC’s, Class D amplification, or when components have switching power supplies. The Carbon Fiber cylinder houses a Swiss-made power supply that generates the DC bias necessary for Active Shielding and to power the internal EM Cell while eliminating the need for messy external wiring and cumbersome wall warts. Performance is further enhanced by the introduction of UEF technology built into the cable’s shields and each individually sheathed cable geometry for the lowest noise floor of any power cord on the market.

Galileo SX Ground Plane

Performance starts at ground.

Learn more

By connecting the Ground Plane termination on your new Galileo power cable to ground or an optional SR Ground Block, you engage with your music in ways you never dreamt possible.  This is because the Ground Plane provides a direct mechanism for removing the buildup of harmful static charge that otherwise decreases the performance system performance. With the Ground Plane engaged high-frequency noise static charges are shunt to ground before they can contaminate your system. For the highest degree of low-level information retrieval, a single SR Ground Block can supercharge your entire system including a full loom of Galileo SX power cables  and interconnects or use the included ground connector to connect your Galileo SX power cables to ground.

Gold and Black Tuning Bullets

Control your world.

Learn more about Tuning Bullets

We’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 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 Galileo SX 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 music in your system.

The Black Active Circuits complete the Active circuit and must be in place in order to achieve the highest performance.

Isolated UEF geometries.

Learn more about UEF Geometries

Galileo SX Power Cables feature 10 individual Active Shielded and isolated UEF geometries running in parallel, each biased by an onboard Swiss-made power supply infused with UEF Tech. High current conductors are accompanied by Pure Silver Monocrystal Filaments in air dielectrics and are built by hand in our California factory. The strategic combination of geometries provides audio components with refined AC power, enabling instantaneous current, free of noise and distortion. Specifically designed for either digital or analog components, the new Galileo Active UEF Power Cables will add weight, speed, and control—yet with all the warmth and delicacy required to bring your music to life.

 

UEF Matrix Shield with Graphene

Matrix shielding.

Learn more

Synergistic Research is the World’s first cable company to incorporate Graphene, a new, highly conductive wonder material that consists of a layer of pure carbon a single molecule thick. One of the many reasons that Graphene is so exciting is that it is almost a superconductor at room temperature.  Superconductors are materials that can conduct electricity with almost no resistance when cooled to extremely low temperatures ranging from near absolute zero (-459.67°F or -273.15°C) to the temperature of liquid nitrogen (-140.8°F or -96°C). With Graphene you get superconductor performance without the deep freeze.

Matrix Shielding began when we started exploring ways to improve our UEF Shielding by applying UEF Technology first developed for our BLUE Fuses to cables. By placing UEF Tech in a grid pattern on the shields of 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. 

Review

"My goodness! I thought that I knew this LP inside out, but there is something scary going on here. I feel like I just walked into the actual recording venue. There is a feeling of space and resolution that I never realized was on this recording. By the way, please tell Ben Webster to stop spinning around and to stand still!" And then that gorgeous smile.

It's an interesting thing (at least for me), that when evaluating new components and seeking specific improvements in your system, many times you know pretty much what you are looking for.  Better bass. More detail. Improved harmonics. And so on. When you discover improvements for something that was not all that apparent before, it can be quite a revelation and an eye opener—especially if it can provide a dramatic new emotional connection with the music.

Review

"According to Ted, yours truly played a part in the voicing of the Galileo UEFs, at least to this extent: After all these years Denney has a pretty good idea of the timbral and dynamic balance I prefer and he made an effort (or so he tells me) to engineer higher energy, higher resolution, and more neutral timbre into the UEFs. As you can already gather from what I’ve written he has succeeded beyond expectation. This is simply the most neutral (least darkly colored), most faithful to sources, highest resolution, most dynamic, and, given the right source material, most realistic-sounding wire he’s built. Voices and instruments aren’t just unmistakably “right” in timbre, pitch, duration, and dynamic; they also have the lifelike bloom that you hear listening to real instruments being played in a club or a concert hall—the “action” that turns (in HP’s famous paraphrase) painted ships upon a painted ocean into three-dimensional semblances of real-life instruments making real-life music.  Read more>

"2018 Brutus Award"

Without question, the Synergistic Research Galileo SX are the finest cables that I have used in my system. Through this new innovative design, Synergistic Research continues their all out assault on the noise floor which allows for a blacker and deeper background.  Music just seems to naturally flow and radiate from the soundstage. Two words kept coming up in my notes as I listened to these cables extensively. Those two words were "ringing" and "smear" or the amazing lack of both. This is all executed without the traditional Synergistic Research implementation of active shielding which has been succeeded by a combination of Matrix UEF shielding, ground plane connectivity, and extensive use of graphene materials. A must audition for those seeking the very best.

"2016 Cable of the Year"

"Ted Denney’s latest creations improve on the cumbersome ergonomics of his original Galileo multi-strand cables (which had to be plugged into and out of a multitude of boxes and actively biased via a plethora of wall-wart power supplies) by packaging most of that marvelous Synergistic technology into the cable itself. Better still, the Galileo UEFs significantly improve upon the truly stellar sonics of the original Galileos. Indeed, the UEFs are the best sounding wires Mr, Denney has yet devised, achieving a dead-center neutrality that is neither “bottom-up” nor “top-down” in tonal balance, without any sacrifice in natural warmth and timbre, resolution of detail, transient speed, dynamic power, imaging precision, or soundstage width, depth, and height. When you consider that the Galileo UEFs are also priced at one-third or one-quarter of what the original Galileos went for (and roughly one-tenth of what flagship cables and interconnects from certain other companies currently cost), you have a veritable bargain in ultra-high-end wire and a worthy TAS Interconnect and Speaker Cable of the Year Award winner."

"2017 Cable of the Year"

"JV has heard a lot of Synergistic Research cable over the years, but Ted Denney's latest creation, the Galileo UEF, is quite simply the best wire Mr.D has yet designed- better even than the original Galileo, which cost four times as much.  Although it is still a bit of a pain to use - because of the various grounding connections required - Galileo UEF is far less of a pain than previous SR wires, simply because the dielectric biasing circuit is built into each cable. (No more wall-wart power supplies stuck in every outlet and power strip of your home.) More importantly, the UEF marks a dramatic shift in SR sonics, coming far far closer to neutral in balance than the darker-sounding originals, without sacrificing any of the speed, color, resolution, or power-range solidity and slam that SR is famous for.  A genuine breakthrough for Denney and Co., a relatively good deal compared to some of the six- and seven-figure competition, and a shoo-in for TAS' 2017 Cable and Interconnect of the Year Aware. (forthcoming)"

Review

"Like the SR Galileo UEF speaker and interconnects, the SR Galileo UEF power cords make components sound exceptionally neutral, rich in texture, full of body, powerful, fast, spacious, and detailed while allowing my system components to reach their full potential. The Galileo UEF digital and analog power cables on all system components checked all of the boxes for me."

Review

"Although the Atmosphere UEF Level 4 cables are excellent cables within their price point, the technology employed in the Galileo UEF cables significantly improved upon the performance of the Atmosphere UEF Level 4 cables. Inner detail, low level musical signal retention, and the ability for the listener to easily pinpoint outlines within a well-defined soundstage were exemplary through the Galileo UEF cables.  Instruments and vocals sounded lifelike and not electrically constructed through the Galileo UEF cables. The lower noise floor conferred many benefits in the areas of micro and macrodynamics which for me, is at the heart of enjoying recorded music… I have a new reference."

Review

"If all this makes it sound as if the Galileo UEFs do virtually everything at the breathtaking levels of a Zenvo TS1, Bugatti Chiron, or Hennessey Venom GT Spyder, it’s because they do."   "Synergistic Research’s Galileo UEF interconnects and speaker cables are technical tours de force that demonstrate just how far the art of cable making has come since the Golden Enz days of electrical-grade copper conductors and connectors of gold-plated nickel. They serve as a reminder of three audiophile truths: the simplest circuit does not always sound the best, the highest-performing products are often not the most expensive, and despite all the amazing progress made, the art continues to advance."

"I could tell something was different from the first note. There was a sense of unfiltered and unprocessed natural clarity to the sound. The noise floor was so non-existent and deeply black that the level of detail and individual notes just seemed to pour out from the Sonus Faber Stradivari speakers, but with a liquidity and ease that was new to my ears."
