Enklein Cables: David

Ultra-high performance cable RCA, XLR

The “David” analog interconnect is our new hallmark cable design bringing the story of David and Goliath to life in your system. The cable incorporates two of our new design concepts; Dragon Skin shielding along with our patent pending shield energy dissipation controller, and a new noise rejection cable topology. The concept of the shield energy dissipation controller has been extended to remove noise from each of the individual conductors within the cable.

The body of the David is constructed with our proprietary “Uni-Tube” sealed air tubes to maintain an atmospheric balance not affected by changes in barometric pressure or humidity. Each fine silver conductor is hedged by our patent pending Forward Feed Shielding technology incorporating a shield energy dissipation controller. This method reduces conductor distortions and interactions providing increased air in the upper octaves paired with a controlled, deeper low end.

Pairing with our Dragon Skin shield technology creates an environment for your music to thrive! The Dragon Skin concept is a 4 part shield topology using; “Super Metals” alloys of Cobalt and Nickel, aluminum, copper, and steel. Dragon Skin electromagnetic shielding protects the signal from outside electromagnetic interference and reduces electromagnetic interference generated by the cable. Eliminating or reducing the electromagnetic influence between cables reduces the noise floor introduced by the cables of an audio system. Each layer is specifically designed for each cable type to perform a specific task, and when added together creates an extremely effective electromagnetic barrier. The effects just may astound you; as the realism of studio and live programming content is increased, and subtle details, previously hidden, are revealed.

The result is a cable with the renowned top to bottom balance of all EnKlein products with a timbre and sense of spatial balance never before heard.The naturalness of the beguiling sound will immerse you in the emotion of the musical content.

Shielding

The shielding method employed in EnKlein products is passive and not within the signal path. The shield acts as an extension of the metallic casing used for high end audio equipment. Within the audio equipment, power and signal paths are controlled by the designer. The same requirements are needed for the externally exposed portion of the signal path in any audio system, the cables!

We have taken our engineers experience in developing thin film shielding materials, power generation, signal transmission, and grounding technology adapting these for use in the analog and digital audio frequency ranges. The method is simple; "control, transform and dissipate the energy". Enklein uses a multi-layer thin film approach to shielding which is integrated with the electrical insulators to achieve an extremely low noise floor and eliminate or reduce cable resonance.

Forward Feed Shielding

Enklein is the leader in “Forward Feed Shielding” technology (patent pending); which reduces or eliminates electromagnetic interference (EMI) by dissipating shield energy collected by the shielding network through a proprietary shield energy dissipation controller. By using a forward feeding shield energy dissipation design, EMI, distortion, and signal variations are dissipated to ground by a method which does not influence the signal.

Dragon Skin

Dragon Skin is a revolutionary shielding development which further enhances our approach to high tech shielding. The Dragon Skin concept is a 4 part shield topology using; “Super Metals” alloys of Cobalt and Nickel, aluminum, copper, and steel. Dragon Skin electromagnetic shielding protects the signal from outside EMI and reduces EMI generated by the cable itself. Eliminating or reducing the electromagnetic influence between cables reduces the noise floor introduced by the cables of an audio system. Each layer is specifically designed for each cable type to perform a specific task, and when added together creates an extremely effective electromagnetic barrier.

With the noise reduction/elimination from external appliances, and reactance between the cables lowered; the music has an environment to survive transmission from one component to another without alteration.

Kubala-Sosna has earned a reputation for producing musical cables.  All of their cables, from Imagination to the new thoroughbred Elation! have the ability to connect to the performance like no other cables! 

There are some who design strictly by applying engineering principles, and then accept what the finished product sounds like, with the assumption that it sounds as it should due to the care in design.  Kubala-Sosna with solid engineering, at each step along the way constantly compared their progress against what they heard listening to live, un-amplified music at Carnegie Hall which is regarded as one of the best acoustic spaces available.

They sought a cable design that offered open, transparent, unetched, natural presentation. Music comes first at Kubala-Sosna. If what they heard from our prototypes did not bring them closer to the sound they heard at Carnegie, they stepped back and re-thought their technical decisions, and made appropriate adjustments.  When finished, they compared lab measurements against many competitive cables and discovered they had, in fact, created a new paradigm in balancing cable characteristics through a combination of art and science.  We proudly offer you a family of cables like no other - we know when you listen, you will agree!



Kubala Sosna: Emotion

High-performance Interconnect

Emotion by Kubala-Sosna.

For over five years, our best cable, and a real trend-setter in the audio world; leading the charge towards accurate performance over the entire audio spectrum instead of the frequency spotlighting that was in vogue when we introduced it.  This cable offers performance levels that equal or exceed any cable made.  The cable Kubala-Sosna was built on.  Truly, a master reference. 

This ensemble is truly a collection of master reference component links. We have been told many times that audiophiles "did not really hear their systems" until they connected to the performance with cables from the Emotion Ensemble!

The process was always the same. We would listen to the existing system, and then change out the cables. Usually within 30 seconds, the listener would proclaim something like … "Wow! What did you do to get these to sound like this??" We did not have to go back to the original cables to see what was different … they knew immediately.

Imagine that! Performance so outstanding these listeners felt their systems were unleashed to a totally new level! Performance so right, they did not just listen to one 30 second sound byte of one track on each reference disc; rather they listened to song after song, focused on the music. Performance so captivating that they did not want to stop listening at all, no matter how late it got! They were, indeed, connected to the music!

The capabilities of these component links are hard to describe because the words have all been used over and over again. Everyone claims "perfect" performance, yet, most cables sound very similar in most regards, somewhat different in one or two aspects.

Kubala-Sosna cables sound different – easily recognizable – obviously superior.

The Emotion Ensemble is a RevolutionZ™ Series cable featuring OptimiZ™ Architecture. All Kubala-Sosna cables include our exclusive 30/60/90 Satisfaction Guarantee and Upgrade privileges towards future purchases (Restrictions apply. See upgrade policy for details).

Kubala Sosna: Expression

High Performance Interconnect

Expression  

Our second offering in the series, This cable offers an interesting step in performance, and demonstrates the scalability of OptimiZ™ architecture.  Every performance characteristic is enhanced while maintaining the same overall feel.  A very worthwhile, and easily heard improvement.  A true reference cable.

Expression Cables utilize a different version of the OptimiZ™ Architecture found in our Emotion Series Component Links. The Expression Series is the equal of many well-respected top-of-the-line cables, possibly bested only by our own Emotion ensemble.

 

During a certain phase of our development and testing, when we first heard these cables, we knew we had something that challenged the state-of-the-art. Something that would compete with almost anything made. Something we would have a hard time improving upon.

In fact, it was at this point in the development of OptimiZ™ Architecture where the ideas were spawned that led to the Emotion Series; refinements of the design of the Expression cables.

It was also at this stage that we began to solicit input from audiophiles and dealers. These are the first cables others heard, and, the story is much the same – instantaneous recognition of something being right about the music. We were told it was coherent, harmonically accurate, detailed, extended, open, rhythmic, and sweet.

In a blind test, three different developmental versions of this series were chosen over some of the most expensive and respected cables available; and the final version we brought to market performs better than any of those three!

Kubala Sosna: Fascination

High-Performance Interconnect

Fascination  

Our first offering that utilizes our proven and patented OptimiZ™ archtecture.  Very balanced sound with exceptional pace, rythym and timing.  We have been told many times that this cable can hold its own in any system.  It begins to demonstrate  how RevolutionZ™ cables can bring out the best in system performance. 

Fascination cables represent the entry into our RevolutionZ™ Series, a truly high-performance collection of cables that begin to showcase the benefits of OptimiZ™ Architecture.

 

In the development process, these cables actually came after the discovery of the top two series, Emotion and Expression. We challenged ourselves to find a way to offer a more cost effective product using our new geometry.

The result is a natural progression of performance from traditional designs, with a definite family sound signature of the other RevolutionZ™ Products.

The performance of these cables is very solid, with no real areas of omission – it is just that as you move up the line, the differences you begin to appreciate about these component links begin to become more and more evident.

Enklein Cables: Aeros Extreme

High-Performance Cable Construct

Aeros is our High Fidelity Interconnect. The construct is made from solid silver wire with either solid silver RCA or Delrin encapsulated silvered pin XLR terminations.

The body of the Aeros is constructed with our proprietary “Uni-Tube” design to maintain an atmospheric balance not affected by changes in barometric pressure or humidity. Each fine silver conductor is hedged by type 1 copper for an internal barrier, reducing conductor interactions and increasing air in the upper octaves paired with a controlled, deeper low end.

Pairing with our proprietary thin film passive shield creates an environment for your music to thrive! The results just may startle you, as studio and live programming content is increased with the subtle details previously hidden by an elevated noise floor.

Why do we go to such extreme measures to protect the signal? It’s simple; the cable is not enclosed in a thick metal chassis typical for electronics and is exposed to the environment.

This remarkable cable expands the liveliness, rhythm, pace, soundstage and expressive character EnKlein is renowned for, adding minute detail and harmonic shades previously obscured. The musicality of the Aeros has been described as "World Class", we tend to agree.



Enklein Cables: Praerie Fire II

Premium copper interconnect

Praerie Fire II is our premium copper interconnect, using premium continuous cast oxygen free, high purity conductors. The Prairie Fire II incorporates many of the concepts of the “David” design at a lower price point.

Enklein Cables: Zephyr

Zephyr High Resolution Interconnect

Zephyr is EnKlein's mid-level high purity silver interconnect, presenting the listener with a level of enjoyment and realism that few cables can equal. The rhythm, pace and micro dynamics create an intimate bond with the audience and the source material.

The construction is a uniform air dielectric with large distances between the parallel signal wires and a proprietary shield network.

The shield network is designed to optimize signal preservation and transmission. The target for the network is any unwanted signal above 10 Hz. 60 Hz AC power waves and Digital noise conductance from source to amplifiers is virtually eliminated.

Each termination is made from premium materials. RCA use 24 carat Gold plating over a pure copper base metal. XLR's use billet brass with Gold and Rhodium over Silver plating’s.

The cables are made from solid premium grade silver 20 gauge conductors, large air tubes and our proprietary shield.

This construction technique produces a top to bottom balance of power, extremely low noise floor, preserved dynamic range, retention of micro-dynamics, texture, and depth of sound stage. We are excited about this cable and think that our enthusiasm will be shared by those who audition.
