Synergistic Research Galileo Discovery Speaker Cables
Galileo Discovery Speaker Cables
Galileo Discovery is Synergistic Research's most evolved speaker cable with one of the most complex cable geometries perfected over 22 years and made by hand in SR's California factory from (4) High Current Silver Matrix geometries, (1) 4th Generation Tricon Silver Matrix geometry, (3) Hand Made Pure Silver / Graphene AirString Geometries and (1) Hand Made Pure Tungsten AirString geometry. All nine parallel geometries utilize the new UEF Graphene Matrix Shielding with a new UEF Graphene Compound first developed for the amazing SR Purple Fuses. To enhance clarity, all geometries and conductors are separated to cancel cable resonance for a clear, effortless sound with natural decay and timbre. During the voicing process, SR added a Tungsten conductor in a hand-made AirString geometry for the unique sound staging properties of tungsten as determined during a 6-month double-blind listening test to find alternate conductors with remarkable properties.
For the clarity, speed, and holographic realism of SR's flagship SRX cable loom, they applied the SRX’s UEF Graphene Compound to Galileo Discovery’s UEF Inductive Cell located in a carbon fiber tube and made from Pure Silver Foils and Graphene with a dielectric of pure Japanese Silk, chosen for its warmth, sonic layering, and musicality over traditional dielectric materials discovered during double-blind listening tests.
To voice Galileo Discovery to your system, select between two bespoke UEF Tuning Modules first developed for the flagship SRX cable loom. The Silver SRX Tuning Module has a highly resolved balance that is pinpoint in its imaging and dynamic in presentation while possessing musicality absent in the previous Galileo Silver Tuning Module. The Gold SRX Tuning Module imparts a warmer frequency presentation with liquidity and envelopment without sacrificing detail. It merely presents differently, with slightly rounded image points, to the Silver SRX’s sharper and more immediate focus. A third option is not to attach either UEF Tuning Module, and the choice is yours to make based on the option that sounds best in your system.
To improve shield effectivness you can star ground strategic Galileo Discovery cable shields to either an included ground option or for higher performance ground Galileo Discovery shields to an optional Galileo Active Ground Block.
Finally, to lower the noise floor, expand the soundstage, and increase detail and dynamics, SR apply a brand new Long Duration, High Voltage, Multi-Frequency conditioning process first developed for the SRX cable loom and new Purple fuses. The net result is the most detailed, dynamic, holographic and musical Galileo loom to date.
After perfecting the most natural-sounding and holographic cables in SR's history, they set out to take them further with a new high voltage conditioning process that applies a sweeping frequency plot for an extended duration. SR experimented with dozens of frequencies in different combinations over a prolonged time period before landing on just the right mix. SR even built a new Tesla Coil to handle the excess heat generated during long conditioning sessions. Once finalized, the SRX conditioning process created holographic realism and timbrel accuracy far beyond our previous Tesla Coil conditioning protocol.
"...the Galileo SXes may well set a new high bar for audio-cable performance. Further, while at first glance their geometries are more similar to than different from those of the Galileo UEFs, the SXes considerably outperformed the older cables... I’m smitten with the sound of Synergistic Research’s Galileo SXes: breathtakingly lively, exciting, and dynamic, yet gorgeously rich, musical, and accurately full-bodied. They are definite contenders for the designation 'the state of the art'..."
