... previously it was inconceivable.

Dear Schnerzinger-Team,

during the last years I’ve dealt with many accessories (room elements, equipment bases, electrosmog chips, energy pyramids, singing bowls etc.). In addition I’ve tried a lot of absolute top cables with my Kondo amps, but no cable played as homogenous and natural as the Kondo cables. Actually I was satisfied and although I could not resist trying yet another improvement again and again, I imagined being in audiophile Olympus already.

As I told you during our date, the first contact with one of your cables that I had borrowed from an enthusiastic friend was interesting, but not as impressive as I had expected. Thank god I trusted your words and arranged a meeting with you in my home.

On site you made me aware, that my experiments with various accessories haven’t solved the defects of the environment, but just compensated to a greater or lesser extent. After the switch to your cables I clearly noticed that previously my sound was rather dull furnished with an artificial gloss in the high frequency range. Suddenly with your cables there is a purity and refinement, which I’ve never heard in this naturalness. Since I’ve changed to your Innovator, my previously highly regarded power line filters P10+P1 are history. Even the singing bowls, which previously have provided more gloss in the high frequency area and better positioning, I do not need any more. On the contrary, now they have a rather disturbing effect, as their gloss in the high frequency area is exposed to be artificial; and the phenomenally arranged spatial definition of your cables will rather be obscured. The tuning chips and the pyramids, previously clearly conveying more musicality and aura, now work as a brake, restricting the potential of your cables bluntly.

You should consider your new wall socket as a must, as I previously could not imagine how much even my former highly regarded and from German hi-fi papers as test winner selected reference wall socket limits the potential of your products.

Looking back now I can even understand your initial warning, that even single foreign components in the chain – however good they may have been so far - may significantly limit the potential of your products or even may turn negative.

In particular I’d like to mention the Protector System that you presented during your last visit. A naturalness and live atmosphere, combined with an incredible dynamic growth – you would think that the chassis jump out of the speakers. Unfortunately your equipment is not cheap, so it will last some time until these devices will be in my home also.

Now after I’ve lived with your products for some months, I like to finally thank you again, as previously it was inconceivable what you’ve teased out of my system.

Cordially yours, Stefan G.

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.
