SCHNERZINGER AUDITION REPORT

As a long term audiophile, last week we had a landmark experience in audition a cable system which is nothing short of revolutionary both in term of sound quality and technical approach in handling music signal conduction. The main system was a tube based system included Ongaku amp, Lampizator DAC and ZELLATON speakers, after elaborate and meticulous setup all cables started from the wall socket to the
speakers were connected with Schnerzinger cables, power station and associated gears. The first few notes of music radiated from the speakers were enough to make everyone dumbfound! Most gentlemen presented in the audition happened to be die-hard vinyl fans and I never saw them so impressed with music came out from silver disc, CD.
What were the main attributes that set apart the Schnerzinger system from other cable systems? It was the absolute ability of releasing music naturally from the silver disc, in my experience since my first CD player back in 1984, I never heard CD source that can sound so effortlessly, naturally and can also reproduce full music frequency, from top to bottom, so damn close to the very top notch vinyl system we had heard. Essentially digital signal went through the Schnerzinger cabling system sounded like digital music has gone through a decompression chamber whereby the true glory of music emerged like never before.
Expressing in more often used audiophile terms, such as coherence, musicality, dynamics, analytic ability, transparency, 3D imaging or whatever you care to name were all top notch. At the end of the day, what mattered to me the most was after a few music pieces I was subconsciously enjoying the music as if I was listening to my reference vinyl system (pardon, for audiophiles like us with over 20 to 30 years of listening experience, we tend to use vinyl as our reference), which had never happened to me before.

The Schnerzinger cable system is a truly magnificent product with out-of-this-world design concepts and results.

It’s a unbelievable feeling that I was heard from the Schnerzinger cable system, last week Michael in person home demo this cable system, it is totally destroy the original setting of the ZELLATON SR1 speaker owner Mr. Lee cable which contain the Kondo and Transparent and NBS, all these now can sell out in my ear…..your cable not only hifi…..is totally music and organic, full of power and accurate in time speed and tonal balance, I cannot resist any more. I also proud of Michael the full of passion in music and really know how of the system correct setup, a most happiness experience of audition in this most exceptional chance….thank you very much again.

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.
