​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.

NEW!! Zephyr 2 High Resolution Interconnect

a3e403ce97c06b9b9a15c02f69d99463

The Zephyr II analog interconnect is our new cable design built upon the bespoke DAVID cabling system technology. The Zephyr brings new meaning of price versus performance; the listening panel all choose the Zephyr over highly advertised cables costing 5 x the price! They simply convey more information and spatial ques in a very musical manner.

David technology and innovation used in this series:

Electro-Magnetic Interposition Shielding System (EMISS)
Bi-directional noise dissipation.

The signal conductors are a solid copper and silver hybrid for both the RCA and XLR versions.

Common cable interactions, that create compression, signal loss and environmental noise is controlled by a unique asymmetrical length based geometry and the passive dissipation system. This method reduces the signal distortion and interactions, inherent in all cables, resulting in extraordinary preservation of the signal.

Don’t be fooled that all cables are transparent or used as coloration “tone control” in the playback systems. Cables in the professional environment for signal processing are chosen for characteristics including; coloration, impedance, low impulse response (smooth over transients), even compression. They do not use “colored” cables for mastering.

The result is a cable with PRAT that clearly identifies the Zephyr as a member of the David family. Performance once reserved for studios and ultra-high end is available starting at $1,795 USD.

Enklein Speaker Cables

David Speaker Cable

The David Series of Cables is our top of the line, flagship cable design bringing the story of David and Goliath to life in your system. David Cables incorporate EnKlein’s pioneering concepts in shielding design and cable topologies. EnKlein’s proprietary EMISS; our Forward Feed Shielding, and a noise rejection cable topology work in concert protecting your precious music signal. The bodies of David Interconnect and Speaker Cables are constructed with our proprietary “Uni-Tube” sealed air tubes to maintain an atmospheric balance not affected by changes in barometric pressure or humidity.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 EnKlein is renowned for; 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.

Forward Feed Shielding
Enklein is the leader in “Forward Feed Shielding” technology. Forward Feed Shielding 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.

Electromagnetic Interpolation Shielding System (EMISS)
Electromagnetic Interpolation Shielding System (EMISS) is a revolutionary shielding development, which further enhances our approach to high tech shielding. The EMISS concept is a 4 part shield topology using; “Super Metals” alloys of Cobalt and Nickel, aluminum, copper, and steel. EMISS 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.

Uni-Tube
Air is our primary dielectric. The air tubes we utilize are comprised of polyethylene tubing; which complies with 21CFR177.1520 – Olefin polymer, hospital grade polyethylene. In our cable design the capacitance of the cable is controlled by the tube size, and electrical break down voltage is determined by the polyethylene tube. This combination minimizes capacitance and inductance, key contributors to distortion. The air tubes are arranged in topological configurations specifically designed to reduce mechanical resonance, and have high electromagnetic interference (EMI) rejection properties. The craftsman seals the ends of the tubes using our proprietary method which creates a “Uni-Tube”, reducing the interaction between conductors and the environment. This simply means the signal traveling through our conductors are shielded from external, internal environmental influences and self-imposed phase distortion found in most cabling. The result is a balance from low to high frequencies and no artificially induced distortion to the audio signal.

Conductors:
20 AWG 99.99% pure silver and multiple different AWG copper conductors in a proprietary topology contained in EnKlein’s Uni-Tube architecture
Triple the amount of 99.99% pure silver conductors as the Zephyr Series
Termination: WBT-0610 Ag (banana) / WBT-0661 Ag (spade)
Signal conductor made of pure silver
Elastomer oscillation damper for superb vibration damping and fracture resistance
Seperate cables for positive and negative connections

Enklein Specialty Cables

Amphora Silver Phono Interconnect

dc59f7dc3de81c293a5a55e4fcfd3ef8

The Absolute Sound Editor's Choice Award 2013

We are proud to introduce our first phono cable. The “Amphora”, constructed of pure fine silver conductors with silver RCA terminations. Optional Rhodium plated DIN termination with a Teflon body set within a nonmagnetic stainless steel housing are available. In a "Light Suspension" cable the possibility of creating vibration is reduced by an optional thin litz tail to the DIN connectors.

All EnKlein cables are extremely low mass, the Amphora is the lightest cable we have engineered. The importance of mass and the conduction of mechanical energy have been overlooked within the industry.

The “Stiletto” construct is derived from the stage 2 assembly used in the Zephyr and Prairie Fire interconnects. The thin film shield and sacrificial ground of 99.999% oxygen free copper configuration creates a passive damper for extremely low capacitance and reactance, targeting the preservation of signals from a broad range of cartridges including extremely low output cartridges. The Stiletto design was demonstrated at CES 2012 to the delight of many, with a 0.2 mV cartridge.

The accessories kit contains detachable grounds to support true mono block phono stages. When a ground is not needed, removing the ground lead reduces clutter.

The Amphora exhibits a low noise floor revealing intimate full range detail, concise decay, controlled lower octaves and like all EnKlein cables; pace, dynamics, imaging, and natural tonality.
