Perfection perfected. Analog and Digital.
Galileo UEF Power Cables are the first power cords we’ve manufactured with an internal Active EM Cell first developed for our PowerCell line conditioners. Even when your power cords are connected to a line conditioner, they're subject to RF and EM fields between the power conditioner and components, and this causes distortion in your system. Each Galileo UEF Power Cable comes equipped with a tiny Swiss made power supply designed to drive the cable’s Active Shielding as well as bias the micro EM Cells encased in carbon fiber. The net effect is a power cable that functions as a discreet power conditioner providing electrical isolation between connected components in your system. In fact powering one or two components with Galileo UEF Power Cables will deliver transformational effects that lower your system’s perceived noise floor. Each Galileo UEF Power Cable is handmade in our California factory and is available for immediate audition. Available in both Analog and Digital variants, contact your Synergistic Research dealer for details.

Active UEF EM Cell
Learn more about UEF EM Cells
Inside every Galileo UEF 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.
Gold and Black Tuning Bullets
Control your world.
Learn more about Tuning Bullets
UEF Galileo Tuning Modules voiced expressly for Galileo connect to the shields of Galileo UEF power cables to contour sound by changing electrical vibration. By altering the relationship between signal and ground vibrations you take control of the sonic balance of your cable and in the process, the sound of your system. Silver UEF Tuning Modules are fast oscillators that tune for clarity, refined detail, and pinpoint image focus. Gold UEF Tuning Modules have a slower response for a sound that is warmer with a pronounced increase in soundstageing and a warm sense of envelopment that in some systems translates into greater musicality. When combining both Silver and Gold UEF Tuning Modules on different Galileo Power Cords in the same system you create the best traits of both Gold and Silver.
Isolated UEF geometries.
Learn more about UEF Geometries
Galileo UEF 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.
A near superconductor at room temprature.
Learn more about Graphene
Synergistic Research power cables are the World’s first to incorporate Graphene, a new highly conductive wonder material that consists of a layer of pure carbon a single molecule thick; a near superconductor at room temperature for breathtaking dynamics. *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). What makes Graphene so remarkable is that it can do this at room temperature.
"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
Robert Youman - Positive Feedback - October. 2018
"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.

"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."

"Best Sound at Show" T.H.E. Show Newport
"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."
Michael Girardi, Stereo Times, Issue 91, June 2017
"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."
