“I haven’t heard every cable… but, I can say the EnKlein David cables are the best cables I’ve ever heard. They produced magic every time…” Key Kim Stereo Times http://v2.stereotimes.com/post/enklein-david-cables
“Perhaps the highest compliment I can grant to Enklein’s David Power Cord is it transmits just what the microphone recorded.” Marshall Nack, Positive Feedback https://positive-feedback.com/reviews/hardware-reviews/david-power-cables-from-enklein/
“It sets the bar significantly higher than this reviewer had previously encountered, so an Audio Excellence rating is clearly indicated.” Paul Messenger, HiFi Critic http://127.0.0.1/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/EnKleins_David_HIFICRITIC.pdf
Construction of interconnect and speaker cables
Air is our primary dielectric in a “uni-tube” configuration. Each conductor is placed in a tube comprised of polyethylene tubing; which complies with 21CFR177.1520 – Olefin polymer, hospital grade polyethylene. Each tube is sealed at the ends and individually shielded. In our cable design the capacitance of the cable is controlled by the tube size, and electrical break down voltage is determined by the polyethylene tube wall thickness. A cable consists of 2 or more “uni tubes” arranged in a topological configuration specifically designed to reduce mechanical resonance, and have high electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) rejection properties. The construct is then covered with a layer of shielding. Both of these two shielding layers have separate controlled energy dissipation systems. This “uni-tube” design minimizes capacitance and inductance, key contributors to distortion. This simply means the signal traveling through our conductors are shielded from external, internal environmental influences and self-imposed phase distortion found in most cabling. The result is a balance from low to high frequencies and no artificially induced distortion to the audio signal. This primary shielding system is used in our digital, interconnects, and speaker cables. A modified version of these shielding methods is used in our power cords.
High level EMI and RFI shielding method
This shielding method is a revolutionary shielding development, which further enhances our approach to high tech shielding, code named “Dragon Skin”. The “Dragon Skin” concept is a 4 part shield topology using; “Super Metals” alloys of Cobalt and Nickel, aluminum, copper, and steel. “Dragon Skin” protects the signal from outside EMI/RFI and reduces EMI/RFI generated by the cable itself. Eliminating or reducing the electromagnetic influence between cables reduces the noise floor introduced by the cables of an audio system. Each layer is specifically designed for each cable type to perform a specific task, and when added together creates an extremely effective shield barrier. The “Aeros” cable line uses a scaled version of “Dragon Skin” and the “David” uses all the latest shielding methods in the “Dragon Skin” arsenal.
