Does someone has an experience with SYNERGiSTIC RESEARCH GALILEO SX INTERCONNECT ?

the price new is around 9500 $.

what would be its "weaknesses"? What do you think about the bullets (gold and silver)?

is the sound natural/neutral?

is it better than stealth indra V10? nordorst valhalla 2 which are less expensive?

an alternative to stealth sakra V12/V16?

I Read some good reviews , but its difficult to find what real people think about it.

Thank you

At this price point. You should ask for at home audition and you can figure out which one sounds better to your ears. Your dealer will be more than happy to help you.

Thanks moneone. however , i never buy "new" because it's too expensive.... so i will not ask a dealer to make a test. 

today i have a stealth indra V10 and a nordorst valhalla 2, and i could have an opportunity on a galileo SX. I tried to find a sakra xlr but it's impossible..

That's the reason why i try to have some informations from users...

Have you checked the lending library at The Cable Co.?

What components are you connecting with the IC. Maybe someone can tell you more when you provide more detail at least in general.

hello I’m located in france so i can’t use The Cable Co.

i have:

luxman CD08u

stealh indra V10 xlr

luxman preamp C900u

luxman nordost valhalla 2 xlr

luxman amp M900u (class A)

i like the overall sound, but i would like to have a little bit more body and energy (and possibly more details and openess).

Luxman electronics are maybe a little bit soft.

stealth sakra would probaby be a good choice (more body than indra with the same philosophy ), but i don’t find it on the second hand market.

galileo SX  could be alternative. Reviews are very good but i don’t know what to think about the silver and gold bullets. is the sound neutral/natural? can it be compared to stealth sakra?

Your ICs are great and I am not sure that the SX is going to bring much more of what you are seeking. Top power cables have the effect you are looking for. What power cables are you using?

@zorba2 - If you haven't already maybe ask your question over on and see if you can get some insights there.

@ facten

Thank you,  i m going to look at 



Concerning the power supply I have a power conditionner GIGAWATT PC-4 EVO + 1 power cord  LS-2 (between the PC and the wall socket), and 3 LS-1 for the electronics.  Gigawatt is a Polish manufacturer, maybe not very known in the USA.

maybe i will replace LS-1 by LS-2 but they are also expensive...

Yes. Check the other forum as well. 

In my opinion the power cables have more impact on sound than interconnects. Gigawatt is not known in the US but their conditioner seems very good. I bet that cables like Shunyata Omega or Synergistic Research SRX or Nordost Odin 2 or the expensive offering from Ansuz  or my moneoone Supernova will be much  better than LS-2 from wall to your conditioner. It will likely be a cheaper upgrade with more impact than the IC.

its difficult to find what real people think about it


Real people don’t buy $10k cables. They just don’t. 

thank you!


i've never paid 10000 euros for a cable, and i will never. i bought my cables around 3000 euros which is already a lot of money for a cable and probably too much money... but they bring something that cheaper cables don't. 

you can find  some real people giving their opinion concerning other very expensive cables (sakra at 16000 euros...etc) , until now i've not found a forumer giving its opinion on galileo SRX xlr ..

i may have an opportunity on a second hand galileo srx XLR, and i hesitate



LS-2 is good I think,  but i will explore other possibilities of power cord.


Nordost odin power cord 2 costs 16 695,00 €.

SRX power cord and moneoone supernova costs 10000 euros.

much more than LS-2



Yes. These cables are expensive and I thought you are going after used market. 10k USD cable can be purchased at half price used. Gigawatt LS-2 is 3.6k EUR new. Not much of a difference in price then but huge performance difference.

I would call Jason Ressler at The Cable Company.  He is extremely knowledgeable.

Thank you. I would be in the US, i would do that,  but i'm far... in France.😉

I'm going to have a look at their website 

Hello, Does someone know the difference of sound between GALILEO LE and GALILEO SX interconnect?

Galileo LE is pretty old technology (for SR at least): uses the old MPC-based active shielding, no graphene, etc. Galileo SX has many advancements and sounds like it. If you do decide to try the LE, price needs to be very low as resale is very difficult.

SR’s power cords and power conditioners are where they really shine. I agree with several others here that power cords make the most improvement in sound so if you don’t already have excellent PCs, I recommend you start there to make a substantial improvement in your system’s sound.

If you have decided that you really need another pair of world-class ICs, consider Stage III Concepts.

Thank you Dicokrum

I've just bought my powercords gigawatt LS-2 EVO, and i think they are good, probably not the best but they are good.

Which Stage III Concepts model would you recommend ? Gorgon? Typhon ?

I own the Gorgon and love it!  I will say, when it arrive I was not happy!  I had removed a Purist 25th Anni XLR and inserted the Gorgon, which at the time felt like a step backwards.  Not now though!  The Gorgon took a long time to break-in.  You don’t see them on the used market so if you end up with a new one be patient, the rewards are there in time!
