EnKlein is a manufacturer that specialises in low-mass interconnects and speaker cables. The company’s philosophy is to focus on minimising disruptive mechanical vibrations which can have a deleterious effect upon the signal. Its director David Kleinbeck, who has worked for companies such as Sprint, has some pretty serious engineering experience when it comes to the “world of wire”.
ZEPHYR II CABLES
The Zephyr II Cable Series is our affordable, entry level, cable design built using technology and techniques pioneered by the bespoke David Series. These technologies include: EnKlein’s Forward Feed Shielding, and a noise rejection cable topology. The bodies of Zephyr II Interconnect and Speaker Cables are constructed with our proprietary “Uni-Tube” sealed air tubes to maintain an atmospheric balance not affected by changes in barometric pressure or humidity.
Forward Feed Shielding
Enklein is the leader in “Forward Feed Shielding” technology. Forward Feed Shielding reduces or eliminates electromagnetic interference (EMI) by dissipating shield energy collected by the shielding network through a proprietary shield energy dissipation controller. By using a forward feeding shield energy dissipation design, EMI, distortion, and signal variations are dissipated to ground by a method which does not influence the signal.
Air is our primary dielectric. The air tubes we utilize are comprised of polyethylene tubing; which complies with 21CFR177.1520 – Olefin polymer, hospital grade polyethylene. 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. This combination minimizes capacitance and inductance, key contributors to distortion. The air tubes are arranged in topological configurations specifically designed to reduce mechanical resonance, and have high electromagnetic interference (EMI) rejection properties. The craftsman seals the ends of the tubes using our proprietary method which creates a “Uni-Tube”, reducing the interaction between conductors and the environment. 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.
