Never expected to be so good

I live in Brazil, in the Northeast part of the country. The hot weather all the year and our beautiful beaches make the place ideal for vacations.
But for us audiophiles it is very hard to test and to buy gear. About 3.000 km far from the Brazilian dealers, located most of them in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, we still face the fact that most of the top high end cables brand are not even for sell in our country.

When I decided to invest this year to upgrade and have a really top high-end system, my problem was to decide about interconnect and speaker cables, as I wouldn’t have many options to test before buying. So a lot of research in forums and high end shows reviews were the path to decide what cables I should purchase.

The choice, after a little chat with Michael Schwab from Schnerzinger, was Schnerzinger new entry line REFERENCE 2000 and two pairs of cable cleaners.

I couldn’t be happier than I am now. It is amazing the transparency, body, correct reproduction of the music this cable allows. The cleaners are a very special type of accessory. Easy to set up, cleaners make an enormous difference in the sound quality, expanding the sound stage, more body to the sound reproduction. Many friends got impressed when we disconnect the cleaners and connect again. The effect is immediate.

I am a very happy client of Schnerzinger cables. Never expected to be so good.

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.
