Synergistic Research Atmosphere X Euphoria – The Next Level

Intro

Contents

Last year, the Full Loom Edition series started with the Synergistic Research Excite line up of audio cables. In addition, an entire suite of their products made up the entire reference system. In short, it was an eye-opening experience. Feel free to read more about it here.

More than any other brand, Synergistic Research excel in a full loom configuration. For example, one time while compiling notes for the Synergistic Research Excite line, I thought the system sounded a bit off. Upon further inspection, I realized that I’ve mistakenly used another Ethernet cable instead of Synergistic Research’s Atmosphere X Ethernet cable.

Subbing the correct cable and everything just “clicked.” Body and warmth infused the sound. While further mixing in all the detail and spaciousness I’ve really come to enjoy the system.

Synergistic Research Atmosphere X Euphoria

After going through a couple of more full loom reviews, Synergistic Research asked if there would be interested in checking out their Atmosphere X Euphoria line of signal cables. I have to admit, I had mixed feelings about it. My wallet was giving me the dirty side eye for all the Synergistic Research products that now sit in my system. BUT – at the same time, I was stoked to see what the next level up would sound like.

Build

With the Synergistic Research’s Euphoria line of signal cables, you’re building on the Excites’s technology by pulling in more technology from their reference Galileo line by:

  • Introducing SR’s Ground Plane into the Atmosphere X series
  • Bringing in the UEF Cell technology from the Galileo line
  • Doubling the number of air sealed 99.9999% silver conductors
  • An additional blue tuning module that emphasizes focus and detail

Just from an initial glance, you can see the additional conductors and some of that Galileo geometry at work. You could almost think of it as a diet Galileo cable. At the same time, they’re fairly flexible and easy to work with.

If a full set of Synergistic Research cables are in the cards, I highly suggest getting one of their ground blocks. This way you can maximize the performance and minimize the number of outlets you’ll use up.

But at the end of it, let’s get down to how it sounds.

  • Hi,

    This is a bit off topic but relates to your subbing an ethernet cable in ths review.

    I'm wondering if you are able to comment on how the SOtM Cat 7 and SE Black Cable -> iSO-CAT6 -> dCBL-CAT7 combination compare with the Synergistuc Research Atmosohere X and Atmosphere X Reference ethernet, given you use the latter.

    Also, how about the new comers in the erhernet scene - Shunyata and Tellurium Q?

    Thanks
