Synergistic New Tesla Line...Any comments?

I just bought Synergistic Research's new Tesla Accelerator speaker cables and Tesla Vortec interconnects from The Cable Company. I have tried many demo cables from The Cable Company over the past year. These were the first to give me that WOW factor I been looking for so long.

Does anyone have these cables and can you please post your impressions and comments? Thanks.
"Actually, the first version was the PowerCell 10, then came the PowerCell 10SE, then came the PowerCell 10SE MKI, then came the PowerCell 10SE MKII, then came the PowerCell 10SE MKIII. That makes that 5 versions."

No sorry. First there was the PowerCell 10SE, then Mk II and now Mk III. The PowerCell 10 and 6 were launched at the same time as the PowerCell 10SE and have since been discontinued. The PowerCell 4 was added two years later.

Are you as disappointed as I am in Ted's comments or do they satisfy you?

My response to your comment:
"A lot of SR's customers are well-heeled folks to whom money comes easily. I mean, who can afford to shell out 5 or 10 grand with each product upgrade unless there is big money in the picture. Others, like me, have to make it the old fashioned way. We have to earn it slowwwwly. At some point new products become out of reach. One's desire for better sound has to be tempered with the realism that there are priorities in life and the musical buck has to stop somewhere."

I would respectfullybeg to differ. I don't want to speculate, but IMHO, SR is a only an "upper mid end" player with a core group of followers for the technology but likely going to feel the squeeze from both the "value players" like the Morrows and Anti-Cables, and the true luxury cables that the well heeled folk flock to (Nordost Odin, Jorma, Zensati, Siltech). I don't think SR has that kind of brand clout. It is not particularly attractive (by luxury cable standards) and the MPC hassle and mess makes it a challenge for the aethetically conscious. I am in the same boat as you are, saving my pennies the hard way. I will also say that if I were financially well heeled, I would be trying out the aforementioned brands. I would rather invest in truly EXPENSIVE cable products rather than continually throw away money on highly DEPRECIABLE cable products.

I am not speaking out of bitterness (although reading some of the comments on this thread, there is plenty of that to go around). I purchased most of my SR gear used and I don't need the latest and greatest. I have a Powercell 4 which more than suffices for my simple system setup. I'd like to see the company stick around but I simply cannot support a business that only markets their R&D "breakthrough" (are their really 4 Powercell 10 breakthroughs in 3 years that need to be formally named?). Some companies just save up the improvements over a 3 to 5 year R&D period for a product that significantly improves on the predecessor and worth investing full price into. Another better way to sustain brand loyalty is to offer factory upgrades at a reasonable charge (say $500 for a Powercell 10). But giving the owner no options but to eat a 50% loss every year is probably not the best way to retain customer loyalty.

Secretly, I'm hoping the high rollers are ready to ditch their Element cables at half price sooner rather than later...
I note the statement in your posting:
"... we make our products readily available through the no risk Synergistic Research Challenge. This seems more then [sic] fair."

However, you refer to the Synergistic Research Challenge on your site as a "70% Trade Up Allowance". With all due respect, this is not the same at all as a "no risk" challenge. Your offer requires the purchase of double the value of the original purchase.

Your site states: "You are upgrading to a Synergistic Research product or products whose value is twice the price of the original purchase to receive the full 70 % rebate." There is no mention of no risk on your site.

There are no upgrades offered on the PowerCell series. So, if a customer who purchased the original PowerCell 10 or PowerCell 10 SE, for instance, wishes to experience the benefits of the much-heralded PowerCell 10SE Mark III, they have to purchase it new. That makes a total of $10,000 to get to the top of the heap. If this customer was unfortunate enough to have purchased, for instance, a PowerCell 10SE Mark I in the interim, the total becomes $15,000.

Well, sir, this is a very tidy sum for those of us who are not among the financial elite. As each new version of the PowerCell hits the market all earlier models immediately depreciate in value. You may get two thousand dollars on the after market for your older PowerCell if you are fortunate enough to find a buyer. But you will note that most of these units now remain unsold after 30 days on Audiogon. Most of the earlier versions are now unsalable. I recommend running them in series.

I can understand your wanting to keep patent information close to your chest. But because this information is normally available to the public since all patent information is supposed to be public, in theory, that is, I find it strange that a search of the Patent Office website turns up nothing for Synergistic Research patents. Please note that I have no doubt regarding the veracity of your statements on this forum regarding your patents.
Teddy did not near a word about the concerns of SR buyers on all the MK's going on. Very sad indeed.

Cash flow baby. Keep it coming!!
