Dark Energy Balanced Interconnects
Dark Energy Balanced Interconnects
Duelund Wire +Dark Matter Technologies = Music
The Dark Matter interconnects feature the ETI Kryo XLR connectors. Inside the
connectors we've placed our Dark Matter material. In fact each end has the material equivalent an entire
set of DMT Dots inside. The material is embedded in a silicone based epoxy and molded to the inside.
Like the Dark Matter products, the Dark Energy series of cables we've developed and sell directly are our statement that one can offer incredible, clearly audible improvement at really reasonable prices. You hear that claim a lot, but seldom does it really deliver.
We have been searching high and low for high performance power cords & audio cables at reasonable prices. While we do carry some great performing brands, we set our sights a little lower in terms of price, but not performance. We at Tweek Geek have assembled for you the music lover what we believe represents real value. An interconnect that will hold it's own in terms of sonic performance against anything near their price ranges.
Duelund Wire+ Dark Matter Technologies
Our Dark Energy balanced interconnects make use of a special combination of Duelund wire, our own DMT material, and ETI Research Kryo XLR 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.
(Above) a full set of DMT Dots. Dark Energy cables use this blend of materials where it is most needed
in audio cables; at the point where wire meets connectors. Here Electromagnetic fields, eddy currents,
and hysteresis are at their strongest and most damaging to the audio signal. The materials in DMT
help to reduce these effects.
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.
ETI Technologies Kryo Connectors
We terminate the Dark Energy cables with Eichmann Kryo XLR connectors. They are simply the best value connector for the performance we have found. They are silver plated copper connectors that have no nickel in the plating whatsoever. The dialectric material between connectors is Teflon, and the housing for the connector is machined aluminum.
About Cable "Warmup"
When the cables are plugged in and your components powered on initially, the sonic tonic inside will take a little time to "charge". Leave your components powered on overnight (you don't need an audio signal running through them, the low level noise will be enough) and hear the difference!
I know I know, you've heard this before, only to have your expectations unmet by the actual performance. That is why we will offer you an in home audition Dark Energy cables so that you can come to your own conclusion on our statement. That's right, borrow the Dark Energy interconnects to evaluate in your own system.
How Do I Get An In-Home Audition?
It starts by contacting us. We will have a brief conversation about your audio system, then will need to collect the following information:
- Name and address
- credit card (for security purposes) - We will not charge your card initially. We put a hold on the funds to secure our investment. A hold is not a charge, and it does not accrue interest. It merely protects us from shenanigens...
What will I hear?
The first thing you will notice is the rich, dense, wide and deep soundstage. You will be immersed in the recording space. You will feel the energy and emotion of the music pouring out of your system. Your toes may tap, heck you may even relax and just let the music take you. Other things you might here include:
- Dynamics - Dynamic attack is vivid, real, without sounding hard
- Vocals - Oh the vocals. One of this cables's stronger abilities. You can feel the emotion in the vocals, male or female. Silkiness, inflections and the subtle textures that give one goosebumps.
- Bass - bass is powerful, harmonically rich (especially acoustic bass) deep and quick.
- Textures - Another strong suit of these cables. Subtle textures that take musical playback from hifi to "holy shit" are there, and audible without straining to hear.
- Phase information - Phase information is presented in more detail. Close harmonic structures are more distinct, yet presented as an organic whole. Reverb comes through more clearly, and the sense of acoustic space is fantastic.
- Energy - The Gestalt of the Dark Matter cables can be summed up in that it helps components capture and recreate the energy and emotion of the performance like no other cord in it's price range.
If you love musical, layered, warm, rich midrange, delicate highs, and a huge, 3 dimensional soundstage, you need to audition the Dark Matter cables! Contact us to make this happen!
