We have partnered with our friends from Synergistic Research to bring you an exciting competition and a chance to win one of four cables worth up to $699.

Alan Sircom reviewed the Synergistic Research Foundation series cables in issue #185 (page 59). He wrote, “Synergistic Research’s Foundation Series cables uses 6N purity pure silver conductors using Synergistic’s own handmade Air String geometry with the company’s UEF (Uniform Energy Field) Matrix shielding. This last is pulled from the more up-scale Atmosphere X cables, placing UEF technology in a grid pattern inside the cable and with a graphene sleeve extending around the connector itself.

The RCA cables feature four of these Air String conductors per channel, while XLRs use six per channel, woven in an air dielectric, all wrapped in a tight braided jacket. The loudspeaker cables look almost identical to the interconnects, using identical materials, techniques and jacketing.

He went on to say, “Consistency and detail are uppermost with Synergistic’s Foundation cables. They are remarkably revealing, both of equipment, but in particular of the music played through that equipment.”

He concluded the review by saying, “Synergistic Research has taken the technologies used in its top cables and trickled down to an affordable level without sacrifice. Foundation is an excellent, er, bedrock in audio that can make a potentially good system into a really great one.”
