The refinement of perfection.
Galileo SX starts with the most complex interconnect geometry we’ve ever hand built in our California factory from pure 99.9999% Silver with Teflon and Air Dielectrics. We then apply a new UEF Graphene compound first developed for our SR Blue fuses for increased low-frequency impact and control, as well as increased detail and musicality. The shields have also been reworked with a new UEF Matrix Shielding Pattern that dramatically lowers your systems noise floor to deliver a holographic sound field that is totally effortless and completely musical.
Next, we reworked the multi-layer UEF Inductive Filters encased in carbon fibre to condition signal outside the signal path with a new UEF Graphene Compound from our SR Blue Fuses. Together these innovations lower your noise floor for detail and nuance that otherwise would go unnoticed. And we’ve revoiced the Galileo UEF Tuning Modules voiced expressly for Galileo SX so you experience increased resolution with non-fatiguing musicality, whether you select the new Silver or the Gold Tuning Modules. In short, we took the world’s highest performance interconnects and significantly upped their game with an emphasis on decreasing the noise floor and increasing musical satisfaction with a sound that is detailed, harmonically rich, and holographic.
Lastly, we treat each Galileo SX interconnect with the same conditioning process we developed for SR Blue Fuses and this increases their musicality as well as shortens their break-in time so you spend more time listening to music, not waiting for your cables to burn-in. And of course, we hit each Galileo SX interconnect with 1,000,000 volts of electricity on our big Tesla Coil with a new sweeping frequency pattern that dramatically improves how the signal propagates for the most efficient signal transfer possible.

UEF Cells per pair.
Each pair of Galileo SX Interconnects incorporate two UEF Carbon Fiber cylinders. Inside each cylinder is a UEF Cell comprised of pure 99.9999% Pure Silver foils and Graphene conductors with Teflon and Japanese Silk dielectrics. This Patent Pending technology is applied direct to signal, shields and ground to lower your system’s noise floor allowing your music to reach you unimpeded and without distortion. The result is music so natural you’ll swear you’re at the live recorded venue.
Galileo SX Ground Plane
Performance starts at ground.
By connecting the Ground Plane termination on your new Galileo Interconnects 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 interconnects or use the included ground connector to connect your Galileo SX interconnects to ground.
Gold and Silver Tuning Bullets
Tune your system.
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.
Isolated UEF Geometries
Pure. Clean. Audio.
Much like the complexity of your music, each pair of Galileo SX Interconnect Cables are constructed of several complex and isolated UEF geometries. These individual signal runs consist of our award winning “Tricon” conductors coupled with Pure Silver Monocrystal Filaments housed in “air dielectric” PTFE tubes. Combinations of these conductors are then separately shielded with UEF Ground Planes, providing the purest form of audio signal transfer. With the addition of Galileo SX Interconnects, your audio system will be raised to new heights, and you will experience a stunning depth of realism that is rarely achieved with recorded music.
UEF Matrix Shield with Graphene
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.
"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

"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

"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)"
"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."

"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."

"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."
Howard Kneller, SoundStage Ultra, September 2017
"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."
