About Us

Whether you are flying 30,000 feet above the earth; waiting impatiently for your flight to depart, communicating with a loved one, or checking your bank account; products utilizing our engineering skills are likely part of your daily life without you even realizing. Our engineers are involved with projects including: typhoon and tornado early warning systems, mobile communications, aviation RADAR, airframe products, power, and data communications. These innovative initiatives span countries, continents and the globe. Companies and agencies we have been associated with include: Department of Defense, NOAA, NASA, the FAA, The Department of Commerce, IBM, Boeing, Airbus, Lockheed Martin, Fluor, Ball Aerospace, Agilent, Advantest, JDSU, and Tektronix to name a few. Our Engineers continue to be engaged at the forefront of technology and product development.

Whilst we approach everything we do with rigor and passion in order to provide safety and comfort in your everyday life, our greatest passion is music and its reproduction. We are dedicated music lovers and musicians who have collected and play stringed and percussion instruments over decades and have built several high-end recording studios. After years of modifying and upgrading studio equipment we reached a point of diminishing return and realized the cabling most studios use is a weak point. So, using our engineering skills we started manufacturing our own power and instrument cables. Like any other musician’s and music lovers we are constantly on the quest for tone. Now, EnKlein utilizes our expertise in cutting edge transmission technology to deliver new and exotic high performance custom cabling and power products for high end audio. Items you depend on in everyday life; we probably already have had a part in designing; but to discover the true potential of your music system let us demonstrate how our expertise in technology will unleash the emotion contained in your music collection.

David Series Cables

The David Series of Cables is our top of the line, flagship cable design; bringing the story of David and Goliath to life in your system.

Zephyr II Series Cables

The Zephyr II Series of Cables is EnKlein’s entry level of cabling. EnKlein went back to it’s roots when designing the Zephyr II Series. The Zephyr II features many of the technologies pioneered by the David Series at a more affordable price.

Cable Design

Obtaining “Acoustically invisible” audio interconnection cable has, in one sense, become the Holy Grail for the high end audio consumer. As other audio components (amplifiers, preamplifiers, CD players, speakers, etc.) have rapidly evolved; they have continued to be interconnected by cables with similar, and in some cases identical, geometries to their 1940’s era ancestors. EnKlein seeks to change that trend through a scientific approach utilizing our engineers experience with signal transmission and power conduction. We strive to create cables that are “acoustically invisible”. All of our cables are handmade in the United States, primarily from raw materials manufactured in the United States.

Typically, an audio system consists of: an audio signal source (turntable, FM tuner, CD player, etc.), an amplifier (either integrated or consisting of a separate pre-amplifier and power amplifier), and finally a speaker system. All these devices must be interconnected by suitable signal cables. Even if the component interconnections are theoretically simple; experience shows that the interconnection cables may greatly influence the quality of the signal reproduced by the audio system. The interconnection cables are known to influence at a minimum: the tone-color of the signal, the spatial reconstruction of the audio “image”, the amount of lost information, the focusing of the sound sources, the dynamic range, the audibility of the sound event, the naturalness of the reproduced sound, and the noise level introduced into the audio signal. These, as well as other variations and distortions imposed on an audio signal by an interconnect cable are all degradations of the reproduced signal with respect to the original event.


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.

This approach to cable and shielding design, along with our use of premium materials dramatically improves the cable’s performance and your listening enjoyment.


Within the audio equipment, power and signal paths are controlled by the designer. The same requirements are needed for the externally exposed portion of the signal path in any audio system; the cables! The shielding method employed in EnKlein products is passive and not within the signal path. The shield acts as an extension of the metallic casing used for high end audio equipment.

We have taken our engineers experience in developing thin film shielding materials, power generation, signal transmission, and grounding technology; adapting their techniques for use in the analog and digital audio frequency ranges. The method is simple; “control, transform, and dissipate the energy”. Enklein uses a multi-layer thin film approach to shielding, which is integrated with the electrical insulators to achieve an extremely low noise floor and eliminate and reduce electrical resonance within the conductors.

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.

Electromagnetic Interpolation Shielding System (EMISS)

Electromagnetic Interpolation Shielding System (EMISS) is a revolutionary shielding development, which further enhances our approach to high tech shielding. The EMISS concept is a 4 part shield topology using; “Super Metals” alloys of Cobalt and Nickel, aluminum, copper, and steel. EMISS electromagnetic shielding protects the signal from outside EMI and reduces EMI 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 electromagnetic barrier.

With the noise reduction/elimination from external appliances, and reactance between the cables lowered; the music has an environment to survive transmission from one component to another without alteration.

Power Issues

The average consumer does not have  “clean” power supplied to their home and cannot readily measure  the quality. Household electronics, air conditioners, lighting  and other appliances add noise to the power traversing the home.  This high frequency noise is not typically filtered by high end  audio equipment. The power cable can be regarded, as the first  connection to the power grid for the components of an audio  system and the performance of this connection will influence the  performance of the component. Our testing indicates using a good  power cord enhances the performance of all electronic equipment  tested, including audio, audio/visual, computer, and digital  projector.
