Duelund Tone Wire Balanced Interconnects
Dark Energy balanced interconnects make use of a special combination of Duelund wire, our own DMT material, and Viborg rhodium plated copper balanced connectors. Duelund is famous for making perhaps the best audiophile capacitors in the industry. Their foray into wire making comes from the same desire that has made their capacitors one of the most sought after components inside loudspeakers and audio gear. The wire itself is a bit unorthodox in this day and age of ultra pure, single crystal OCC wire. It is a copper wire that is tinned, then jacketed in a proprietary oil soaked cotton, then heat treated to "bake" the oil into the cotton jacketing. The wire delivers a very rich, tonally dense musical performance, well beyond it's price point and surprising in light of the fact that it is not at least touted as hyper pure single crystal wire. The addition of the Dark Matter material takes the Dark Energy interconnects to a new level of performance. Improving low level detail retrieval, soundstage and sense of musical flow.
The addition of Dark Matter to the inside of the connectors, creating a mechanically stable, electronically optimized environment for signal transmission right at the solder joint. The solder joint is an area of chaos for electrons. It's also a vulnerable location where noise can enter in to the signal path. With Super Sonic Tonic embedded in a vibration damping epoxy, you get shielding and signal transmission optimization in one material. It makes a huge difference in the phase coherance, low level detail and overall musicality of the listening experience. After adding the Dark Matter material to the inside of the connectors, the cable's musical presentation becomes smoother, richer, more textured and resolving while maintaining the musicality that attracted us to the Duelund wire. The soundstage is much, much larger, expanding in all directions.
