Element C.T.S. Digital combines everything we’ve learned from experiments with pure Earth Elements suspended in Actively Shielded Air String Geometries. With over 20 years research in high current power cord technology, we’ve built the world’s highest performance power cord for digital components.
Breaking Element C.T.S. Digital down to its individual hand built geometries, you find Copper Air Strings for powerful bass energy and musicality, Tungsten Air Strings for amazing holographic soundstaging and high frequency extension, and pure Silver Air Strings for refinement, speed, and pristine acoustic decay. Additionally, C.T.S. Digital has four specially voiced high current geometries running in parallel, developed expressly for digital applications. Sonically, Element C.T.S. Digital combines two seemingly opposite strengths: musical liquidity and precise pin-point imaging for a sound that is as lush, as it is detailed and precise. Expertly voiced for digital components, Element C.T.S. Digital preserves live recordings with realistic scale and holographic room filling sound. Detail, dynamics, and precise image placement rival that of the best analogue turntables. Element C.T.S. Digital is the must audition cable for any ultra high-end digital system.
Active Shielding voiced for the special demands of digital components
Element C.T.S. Digital has a total of six Enigma Tuning Circuits, compared to three circuits for all other Element Series power cords. Where one Enigma Tuning Circuit determines the sonic balance of active shielding for all other Element Series power cords, Element C.T.S. Digital uses two Enigma Tuning Circuits. For a practical example, let’s assume you like the added air of the Silver Enigma Turning Circuit, but also need the added warmth of the Grey Enigma Tuning Circuit. With two different Enigma Tuning inputs, you can tune half the cable with a Grey Enigma Tuning Circuit and the other half with Silver Enigma Tuning Circuit. Two circuits allows for a more gradual transition between either Black and Grey, or Grey and Silver. Of course, you can still tune the entire cable with all Black, Grey, or Silver Enigma Tuning Circuits, but with more options, you have more control to strike just the right balance between mid-range warmth and high frequency air and sparkle.
