A NEW COMPONENT

Dear Schnerzinger team!

Hereby I like to express my personal experiences regarding the new EXTREME series. After I had newly set up my new Gryphon components and speakers B&W 800 D3 and cabled with my new EXTREME 5000 series, a sheer acoustic firework was kindled. You think the speaker chassis start jumping! The Diablo 300 – already dynamic from factory – gains speed as if someone has kicked it in the ass. Bass dances light-footedly through the orchestral tutti with full speed. Bass impulses from Marcus Miller appear solid as nailed to the floor and disappear again out of nothing. You may think someone has releases the handbrake! But not only dynamics gain dramatically; music reproduction naturalness is extremely authentic and real. It is hard to believe how far you suddenly get with an integrated amplifier; these characteristics are more typical for expensive pre and power amplifier combinations.

To me the new Schnerzinger EXTREME series has the “status of components".

Voices are amazingly real with a live recording atmosphere, immediately trapping you within the music; these emotions cause real goose bumps to the listener! I’m over the moon with my new Schnerzinger system and I’m pleased with the success and the knowhow of the developers! Keep going; your products are extremely expensive but the equivalent sonic value is extremely high also! Thus the name EXTREME series. If you’re seeking for the best, you should at least make your own listening experiences and get your personal impression of these cables. Only then you know what is possible. I know my components from hi-fi trade shows and from my own listening experiences. So I can confirm that without the Schnerzinger cables these components by far won’t perform at such a high level. The speed of the reproduction is significantly slowed down and the spatial imaging and naturalness are limited in particular. Going back is unthinkable to me.

Who would prefer to use a sports car in urban traffic when you drove it on the autobahn before?

ATOMIC BONDING vs. Monocyrstaline OCC / UPOCC Conductors

In contrast to the often only temporarily effective advantages of established treatment and manufacturing processes on the reproduction quality of high-quality audio cables, e.g. cryogenization or OCC or UPOCC casting processes, SCHNERZINGER cables with ATOMIC BONDING conductors enable an audibly purer and unrivaled true-to-life signal transmission - and this permanently! 

In order to recognize the essential advantage of the SCHNERZINGER ATOMIC BONDING technology compared to conventional methods, some background knowledge about the industrial processing of wires used as conductor material in the audio sector is required:

CONVENTIONAL CASTING METHODS:

To manufacture the conductor material in most audio cables, thick copper or silver strands are repeatedly drawn through so-called drawing dies until the wires are thin enough for further use. Every drawing process means enormous mechanical stress, which causes the crystalline grain structure of the wires to disintegrate into many crystals. In a sense, the audio signals have to find their way through many of these grain structures. The flow through the grain boundaries from grain to grain creates an enormous resistance potential every time, which is known to cause slowed signal transport.

The more complex casting process is therefore often used for higher-quality audio cables. Here, liquid copper or silver is continuously poured into molds, which results in longer grain structures. In the even more complex monocrystalline OCC or UPOCC (Ultra-Pure Ohno Continuous Casting) process, the molds are even heated and slowly cooled to prevent the material from solidifying too quickly. This process was developed by Prof. Ohno in the 1980s for industry so that fewer cracks occur in the sheet metal when the copper strands are rolled out

INNOVATIVE APPROACH WITH ATOMIC BONDING:

SCHNERZINGER ATOMIC BONDING, on the other hand, takes a completely different approach:

To easily get the idea of the innovative development approach ATOMIC BONDING, simply envision a conducting wire as a pipe filled with ice cubes, whereby the ice cubes symbolically illustrate the inner grain structure of the wire.

Since long-chain metal structures are quite sensitive and easily disintegrate again after the manufacturing process, e.g. due to vibrations and bending processes, ATOMIC BONDING is a technologically extremely complex process which does not aim at bonding individual ice cubes to form a closed, long-chain monostructure, but on the contrary at crushing the cubes. This results in the smallest ice structure components, which can subsequently be compressed into a stable, homogeneous ice mass with very high cohesive forces in the tube.

A compacted, fused mass of ice has a closed, extremely stable structure - without any gaps. This fact forms the basis for a highly pure and perfect impulse chain - for a true-to-life signal transmission.
