High Performance

Need the ultimate in High Performance? Discover for yourself how much untapped performance High End audio really has!

Our SE upgraded versions of the latest models are State of the Art

Our unique RFI EMI RIDDANCE TECHNOLOGY strips millions of unwanted pulses from the signal paths power supplies all of which otherwise get reproduced right along with the music & video signals. This frees up 10-100 times the available power supply energy in any given millisecond to more faithfully reproduce the intended music & video signals to STATE OF THE ART Bass response becomes THE BEST as a result, so does liquidity, musicality, ease, palpability, slam, dynamics, sparkle, depth, articulation, clarity, extremely 3D live right before you feeling on music & film is just tremendous when the rest of your system has also been SE upgraded with the same unique RFI EMI RIDDANCE TECHNOLOGY. All brands of non-Upgrade Company upgraded high-end audio (and video) are highly compromised.  The latest magazine reviewed models fail to come close sonically to the same model which has been upgraded by The Upgrade Company.

General Site Search Engine

Thank you for visiting. This website contains a lot of information that will hopefully provide you with an understanding of the great opportunity that lies ahead for you in totally transforming high-end audio and video equipment to a true new "State of the Art" level that more then 1,000 audiophiles enjoy around the world.

 

You cannot hear RF when you turn up the volume full blast that’s inherent noise from the parts themselves. Humans cannot hear radio frequencies.  It has NOTHING to do with turning up the volume to listen for "noise". RF is NOT noise like EMI is on the power line.

 

You have been mislead by your salesman, magazine reviewer, and laymen in online forums. Who are you going to trust? A salesman? A magazine reviewer? Or your own ears & eyes backed up with a 100% Buy Back Guarantee?  Don't trust mod firms with no return privilege and no long term warranty like our 5 year parts and labor.  

 

RF (radio frequency) is a high frequency high pulse rate extraneous overloading energy that is contained in the air all around us everywhere on Earth. Electronics generate RF on their own, in power supplies and in what is commonly called a "clock".   All clocks are bad news for the actual audio or video signal integrity because they radiate like a mini radio station broadcasting their RF beat frequencies into all surrounding parts and wiring which then gets amplified every step of the way on top of the actual music and video signals massively degrading performance. RF is just a pulse just like the music & video signals are, but shorter wavelengths in the Khz, MgHz, GHz bands. Trillions of pulses per second bombard all electronics and permeate all electronics because the parts and wiring contain metal which strongly attracts RF. All brand contain metal in strands of wiring, circuit traces, and the leads on all passive and active parts and all chipsets as well as inside the parts themselves. Literally sponges for RF. Bad news for signal integrity and power supply charge. All stock gear have 80- 90% depleted power supplies when in use due to today's high prevalence of RF everywhere being collected and passed along and amplified in every brand and model.

 

 FACT:  Stock performance is awful in side by side direct comparison of the same model.

 

Inside every single model we upgrade today,  every chipset every active part every passive part gets RFI EMI treated as well as dampened from physical vibrations. 20+ hours of work today on average for each unit. Every factory stock brand & model made is full of radio frequencies.  All brands are completely unshielded, unattenuated, non-dissipated, non-damped.  Ditto for wiring and conductors, acting more as RF EMI antennas bringing in more extraneous pulses then the intended signal content by a factor of over 100!  This alone is severely compromising the sound and video.  We fix all of this. It is very time consuming however the results are completely unparalleled. We have advanced tremendously in the past year.    

 

Our Scientific method employed is based on empirical data gathered from an Agilent Spectrum Analyzer and calibrated active and passive probes.  Results are constantly attested to by our many satisfied customers. We have not had a return in 15 years as of 12-07-19.  

 

Audiophiles & Videophiles, many of whom were initially skeptical, after conducting  their own A-B comparisons in their own systems, discovered the truly gigantic performance difference we offer by using our RFI & EMI RIDDED & SE Upgraded equipment and cables.  

 

Even the most high-end brands are dramatically improved upon by suppressing this airborne RFI EMI collection+reproduction+amplification interference which humans cannot hear directly but is ever-present in the air all around us and drains the musicality from your listening experience and worsens video.  

 

There are no other products or mods on the market that solve the problem of airborne Radio Frequency collection, reproduction and parasitic amplification. It is the root cause of less than the  best possible reproduction available to you. 

 

We wouldn’t have a 30 day in system buy back guarantee unless we were absolutely certain it wouldn’t come back.  

 

Stock = lesser sound quality & average video compared to your equipment’s potential

 

You aren’t getting the best available return on your investment using stock, factory “For Profit Built” internally un-suppressed and non-SE Upgraded RFI & EMI RIDDED HiFi & Video.

 

No returns in over 15 years!

 

Yours in Music,

RFI EMI collection, reproduction, & amplification is the #1 most widespread most pervasive obstacle to perfect fidelity, period.  It is not the brand or model, parts nor circuit design. Parts swapping mod firms do not even come close to our results.

 

Remember just 1 WiFi router in your home emits a constant 2.4 billion RF pulses every second into yourself and into your gear and cables every fraction of every millisecond dramatically robbing power supply in your components and wrecking signal fidelity. The high pulse rate of RFI is over 1,000 times more pulses reproduced than the actual signal content alone. 

 

Turn on your smart phone or tablet WiFi and note how many WiFi router options appear: Every WiFi is emitting a steady 2.4 billion RF pulses per second into both you and your electronics constantly as long as it is plugged into wall power.

 

The airwaves all around us are constantly filled with radio frequency pulses humans cannot hear, nor does it produce audible distortion directly, it overloads the circuits/chipsets/power supplies robbing every aspect of performance, both audio and video, gobbling up power and heating up active parts. 

 

We recommend starting your Upgrade Company journey with either the TimePortal power cords or upgrading your source component. This is where it all starts.  

 

TimePortal power cords have 10x more RFI EMI ridding materials over power conditioners alone. 

 

Our SE Upgrade+RFI EMI RIDDANCE technology installed into your source will make you a believer. 

 

All brands and models made today are still being sold with buck naked wiring/chipsets, active/passive parts which must have our RFI EMI RIDDANCE Technology painstakingly applied. This is a 4 part engineering breakthrough comprised of shielding, dissipation, attenuation, & dampening. RFI EMI RIDDANCE Technology in and of itself elevates all brands and models to above stock State of the Art, above Class A, above Editors Choice, above cost is no object brands and models, proven, no if ands or buts by or 14 year zero returns track record.

 

RFI EMI collection, reproduction, & amplification is the #1 most widespread most pervasive obstacle to perfect fidelity, period.  It is not the brand or model, parts or circuit design.

 

By dramatically reducing the number of RF & EM pulses permeating both the signal content and power deliver by a factor of 100, its just like putting in a 100x larger power supply. Clients are amazed at the new sound quality, most notably, larger 3D soundstage with blacker background, previously unheard of bass slam depth pitch & speed, an unusual ease refinement and musicality even on the poorest playback material.  

 

Remember that any electronic system is only as good as its noisiest or worst sounding link in the chain, never the best. To apply this technology to its full effect one ought to have our RFI EMI RIDDANCE installed from power delivery to the loudspeaker cables and loudspeaker crossovers. All chipsets and electronic parts within all of the systems components must be shielded/attenuated/dissipated/dampened with our RFI EMI RIDDANCE and all power cords and interconnects and speaker cables must be wrapped with our RFI EMI RIDDANCE Technology as well, since the negative lead of the loudspeaker cables is a huge RF antenna whose current flow is back to the source, preamp and power amp.

 

Imagine your system all the way up loud 200 watts or so….would a thin wall reduce the volume much? No. RF frequencies in the air are 10x-100x louder then your system all the way up. Would the see thru braid shielding and thin mylar “shielding” of factory cables reduce the volume of your system? No, not at all in fact. But RF is 20,000+ watts of cellular broadcasts constantly.  All WiFi routers constantly spray 2.4 billion RF pulses constantly into your home and into you too. Shielding must be thick, redundant, affixed tightly with numerous materials around all cables/chipsets/wiring to be effective. Factory shielding does not work much at all either.  RF goes right through constantly contaminating your system robbing all power supplies and ruining signal integrity. 

 

Your entire system must be ENTIRELY RFI EMI RIDDED to properly reproduce music and video signals.  

 

Your cables and stock gear are naked and highly compromised despite OEM claims of shielding, they aren’t! We wouldn't have 100% guarantee otherwise!

Performance problems with all brands of High-End Audio and Video:

Magazine touted "high end audio" sounds dull, flat and boring!: weak one note bass, fuzzy midrange and highs, veiled, hash, small and flat.  Simply not musical, simply not "live".  

The most expensive equipment is simply not working anywhere near its true potential unless it has been internally upgraded with our 4-part shielding, dissipation, attenuation, and dampening from the trillions of radio frequencies that are all around us.  

Stock gear is just not satisfying or your would not be reading this. 

Performers and instruments sound electronic and small, not like they're right in front of you. Video that looks mildly washed out, hazy, colors lacking in depth detail & immediacy, grainy in comparison to film or real life. Whites that glow. Blacks that blend together.  Read on and we will explain why... 

Magazine Class A rated "Editors Choice" new models only demonstrate incremental improvement, not revolutionary improvement like our upgrades provide.  All stock consumer electronics are internally naked spending the majority of their power supply storage and bandwidth reproducing radio frequency noise rather than the intended signal content all by itself.  Naked chipsets, amplifying parts, wiring, power supply parts ruins performance.

The Upgrade Company has reverse engineered the most expensive high end brands for decades. Even today, no matter how much we spend on the latest & greatest new model, performance and build quality are always lacking. The latest magazine "Class A" "Editors Choices" "Top Picks" sound dull, flat, hazy, grainy, one dimensional next to the same model that has been upgraded. This is not difficult to understand. Like so many audiophiles today, we too were once caught up in the "Merry-Go-Round" of buying and selling one model for another, never achieving the level of performance we were after, and knew technology could provide. Manufacturers want you to believe that their highest priced models automatically equate to "State of the Art" performance. Magazine reviewers want you to believe their top recommended models are night and day better than the lower ranked recommended models, or models they failed to "review". This is simply not evident when listening. Reason being: both the low priced and high priced models from the same manufacturer nearly always contain the same supplier for the wiring, printed circuit board material and electronic parts! They buy in bulk. There's simply more of the same brands of parts in the more expensive component with a more expensive outer casework and remote. In both instances, the high priced and low priced models greatly benefit from upgrading to the highest end parts, shielding dampening and wiring. For top-of-the-line models to be profitable in the market place, reviewers have to promote them and talk them up. Basic economics, you do not establish profitability by selling 5 or 6 pieces per year. Nor are the magazines themselves profitable unless they earn well over fifteen thousand dollars month for advertising and their reviewers compensated somehow, typically in free or "loaned" gear for their high words of praise. 

The inner cover ad in a major high end audio publication is said to be a minimum $6000 a month, or free gear, and a review is generally not granted until at least several months of advertising have been paid for, or other arrangement has been made. No one works nor publishes a magazine for free.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Our most common questions lately have been:

Question 1: How do I feel/hear RFI/EMI distortion?  I do not hear or feel any distortion in my system.

ANSWERS: Again humans cannot hear RFI you hear the difference when comparing our SE Upgraded models directly against cost is no object models and the identical stock model in your system.Our technology is such a big improvement that children and wives and lay people notice without being asked. Gigantic compared to purchasing a new stock model at any price. Stock systems at ANY price level do not exhibit  the soundstage height, scale, 3D reach out and touch image placement, bass/weight/punch/depth/speed/delicacy, nor the midrange & high end purity & delicacy & organic live nature of live un-amplified musical instruments & human voices in your room, even synthesized electronic music is entirely more detailed and intricate and smooth and detailed. Simply no comparison with stock. The power supplies are all nearly drained and the circuits are all overloaded with RF which kills performance. You need to hear and see the great benefits of RFI EMI Riddance by comparing one of our SE Upgraded units since it’s something you’ve yet to witness in your system. Remember we’ve had no returns in over a decade, the technology works wonders today as it has been greatly evolved and improved over the past 2 years with new materials and techniques.
 
Question #2:
 
Hi David,
How about a grounded metal box where all chips and wiring are enclosed in? Not 0.1mm porous mesh shield, but a 0.5mm thick walled whole iron box…
 
ANSWERS: Does not work.  You are negating the following 5 facts: 
 
#1 Welding a box shut around a HiFi or Video component still doesn’t solve the ever present RF contamination problem inside the box because the stock unit itself generates and radiates its own RFI broadcast inside the unit by its own numerous clocks (correctly termed RF generators). The units power supply also radiates strong RFI & EMI into every strand of wiring, every chipset, all active & passive parts within the unit because they contain metal acting as RF antenna as evidenced on a spectrum analyzer. Stock units combined self-generated RF pulse rate is far more than the actual signal content pulse rate and more than enough to quash the intended signal content and rapidly deplete power supply storage every second.  Also the unit needs to cool itself allow heat to be released.
 
#2 RF wavelengths are so short especially at the 2.4Ghz wavelength of cell tower/ cell phone/home phones/WiFi use, they go thru slots, gaps, and holes in underside, through the rear panel RCA plugs full strength out of the air. Only our technology solves the problem of RF contamination.
 
#3 Iron is a ferrous metal which means it will develop a permanent magnetic field charge which is by definition is EMF radiation which is deleterious to signal flow and reproduction of delicate audio & video signals.
 
#4 Shielding is simply just bouncing the RFI EMI somewhere else, it does not reduce it nor convert it to heat to get rid of it. Putting it in ground like AudioQuest & Bybee Rails do doesn't really get rid of it either.  Grounding the box just dumps a bunch of added RF onto ground which is an electrical conductor whose current flow isn’t always 100% away from the system.  You are dumping RF into the electronics this way because ground is  directly shared amongst components and the loudspeaker minus lead which collects RF,  and reverse eddy currents occur on grounds everywhere within the circuitry contaminating it with RFI EMI.  You’ve never heard hum before?  That’s reverse EMI. You aren’t dissipating nor reducing the volume of RFI EMI.  Proper way to rid RFI EMI is thru attenuation & dissipation & dampening of RFI & EMI that comes in on each strand of every cable that goes in and comes out it. RFI pulses still overload the power supply and all chipsets all electronics all DAC’s all tubes all opamps all Metal Leads on passive parts collect it and send it to the output stage to be amplified and sent to the preamp to be amplified (with even more RF received on the interconnects & it’s power cord) which then goes to the power amplifier which then is massively overloaded with even more RF pulses collected on its interconnect strands and power cord strands.  Power amplifiers get hot when turned up loud due to RFI.  Billions of pulses per second are being amplified in the RF range humans can’t hear.  Speaker impedance didn’t change, it’s solely the extreme amount of RF pulses being amplified, billions of RF pulses per second.
 
#5 Grounding the box just dumps a bunch of added RF onto ground which is an electrical conductor whose current flow isn’t always 100% away from the system.  You are dumping RF into the electronics this way because ground is  directly shared amongst components and the loudspeaker minus lead which collects RF,  and reverse eddy currents occur on grounds everywhere within the circuitry contaminating it with RFI EMI.  You’ve never heard hum before?  That’s reverse EMI.

 

In the industry full of exaggerating sales people and magazine reviewers hungry for ever more free gear to sell for $$$, forgive me for saying it's hard to believe. How in the world do you get midfi and discontinued models etc to outperform the latest Class A rated Editors choice Top Pick Recommended Components praised models?

 

Because ALL brands are compromised built to a price point and moreover constantly, every fraction of every millisecond, collecting RF pulses out of the airwaves all around us everywhere, which RUINS signal fidelity.

Just 1 WiFi router emits 2.4 billion RFI pulses per SECOND, (your electronics are also collecting all your neighbors WiFi and another 10-20 RF generators in your household emitted by all kinds of devices) which the buck naked 
non-RF attenuated stock models at all price points, become overloaded by, amplifying & consuming most of the power supply storage within each unit in your system.

Remember music signals are 16Hz at low end up ~30,000Hz with overtones at the high end averaging just tens of thousands of pulses per second, just a small fraction of the BILLIONS of total pulses the buck naked top
of the line megabuck models are also collecting and amplifying, which constantly drain & empty both local & main power supply reservoir capacitors, giving a thin sound,  weak bass, shrunken soundstage, hazy gritty peaky and forward as a result. A spectrum analyzer proves this out.  Remember humans cannot hear RFI. 

Listening is unmistakable.  Remarkable. Cumulative & exponential as each TimePortal Cable & SE Upgraded RFI EMI RIDDED product is inserted into your system.

Stock mass-produced audio or video equipment even at the very highest price levels and magazine hype, never satisfies long term because it is contaminated with radio frequencies and low frequency electro magnetic radiation from within itself and right out of the airwaves that are all around us, unless it has been upgraded By The Upgrade Company.
 
The Upgrade Company provides it's clients with satisfying performance that will keep you happy for years.  Finally you can get off the merry-go-round of buying and selling equipment and achieve audio nirvana. 
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
In short, here's what's going on with all stock audio or video equipment:
 
Cheap parts & wiring, lack of any internal shielding, attenuation or dampening of radio frequency & electromagnetic radiation.  Naked wiring, naked parts, naked circuit boards.  All metal attracts & collects radio frequencies ruining performance in all brands of Hi-Fi & Video.  Try a piece of fish string or kite line for an antenna - it won't work at all.  Only metal conductors collect radio frequencies. That means that all of the wiring, metal leads on parts, metal circuit traces inside DAC's, video scalers, op-amps etc. all parts inside all brands of HiFi & video are in fact collecting radio frequencies millions of times per second severely compromising both audio & video performance. The Upgrade Company is the only consumer electronics company effectively dealing with this issue.
 
Every electronic part and wire in the signal path can be thought of as an interconnect, and every electronic part and wire in the power supply can be thought of as a power cord.  Our upgrades are in essence replacing a high number of interconnects and power cords within your components AND shielding & dissipating them! The effects are remarkable. Far greater then replacing the interconnects and power cords OUTSIDE the components.
 
The finest most expensive medical, military, aerospace and commercial telecom equipment and space satellites are extensively shielded inside to preserve and maintain absolute signal fidelity and not waste power supply energy. However consumer electronics have NEVER been RFI Ridded until The Upgrade Company pioneered this technology in consumer electronics back in 1980, more then 33 years ago.
 
Take a look inside any brand of consumer electronics, irregardless of cost or magazine hype. Note the wiring, circuitry, and all chipsets including DAC's, video scalers, op-amps, diode bridges, DSP chips, RAM memory chips, etc. all left the manufacturer naked and unshielded in consumer electronics until The Upgrade Company pioneered and incorporated the use of specialized parts and shielding techniques to both shield chipsets to rid RFI & EMI from becoming a part of both signal content and power supplies.  Until The Upgrade Company came along, high end audio and video equipment left the factory fully naked and exposed to both it's own internal as well as external radio frequency and electromagnetic contamination, right out of the airwaves from both inside the unit itself and collected externally through slots and holes in the chassis. RFI can pass full strength through a single hole the size of a pencil tip causing your DAC and Video scaler and op-amps to spend FAR MORE time & power supply storage reproducing radio frequency radiation right along the actual music or video signals. Even worse, RF generating clocks controlling the audio and video are often located just millimeters-centimeters away from the actual audio & video signal carrying chipsets, literally bombarding them with extraneous RF energies which become reproduced as well as amplified right along with the music and video.  
 
   Simply do the math:
 
Music pulses from approx 20 cycles per second to 30,000 pulses per second, arguably averaging only 2,000-6,000 pulses per second with most music. Contrast that vs. total RFI radiation of 300,000 + pulses per second given off from the numerous clocks inside modern brands of Hi-Fi and Video.
 
So let's do the math:  3,000 pulses per second on average for a song versus 300,000 RFI pulses per second being collected and reproduced right along with the music.  Therefore RF radiation is being reproduced 100 times more then the music is.  100 times more power supply energy is spent reproducing RFI contamination.  Said another way, RF contamination depletes power supplies 100 times faster then the music itself, again which averages only 2,000-6,000 cycles or pulses per second.  Non Upgrade Company upgraded models spend more time reproducing RF radiation then actual the actual audio or video signals. The RFI pulses emitted by just a single 30khz clock inside your gear is still TEN times the pulse/cycle rate of the music on average.  Also bear in mind that the typical amplitude (volume) of music is below 1 volt until it finally reaches the output stage inside the power amplifiers. Under 1 volt is close to the same volume as the RF contamination spewed spherically by the various clocks inside the unit.  Much of the music in the analog & digital domains is in the millivolt range, millionths to hundredths of a volt.  About the same volume as RFI.  Just 2 volts of volume from a digital source or preamplifier is enough to drive power amplifiers into full maximum output. Non-Upgrade Company stock models expend most of their energy and time reproducing RFI & EMI
 
Salespeople, the majority of whom know next to nothing about engineering, often claim that RFI is not an issue with vinyl analog playback nor the older supposedly all analog pre and power amplifiers.  Dead wrong.  The entire LP chain from the cantilever to the cartridge coils and metal parts to the cartridge leads, sharp edges on cartridge lead pin clips, tonearm leads, phono preamplifier or step-up coil, all of these contain metal which attracts RFI like a sponge right out of the airwaves that are all around us constantly.  This has the effect of greatly diminishing performance in every sonic parameter.
 
RFI collection inside Hi-Fi can be measured easily with the proper equipment and has been found to contain a multitude of radio frequencies collected right out of the airwaves which are then passed right along to other components in the signal path to become amplified along with the music, causing prematurely depleted power supplies (10-1000 times the pulse rate of the music or video) and squashed dead dull flat one dimensional thin peaked sound quality versus the same unit that has been upgraded by The Upgrade Company.  
 
In addition, supposedly all-analog gear from names like Ayre, Bryston, Classe, Krell, Audio Research  etc, contain 1 or more digital clocks to operate.  These clocks are properly termed "Radio frequency generators".  Each clock radiates it's performance robbing RFI out into the air inside the unit which is then collected immediately by every electronic part and every wire becoming mixed in with the actual signals and power supply storage.  All brands are guilty of this unless The Upgrade Company has upgraded it.  All brands are severely compromised and exhibit poor signal integrity due to their naked digital as well as analog chipsets and power supplies to spend a minimum of 10 times the amount of time spent reproducing  the intended signal content itself.  RFI is constantly collected from the internal clocks as well as RFI that travels in along interconnects and power cords, which also act as antenna's constantly collecting RFI & EMI.  It all adds up to hundreds of thousands of pulses per second, up to 100 times the energy and time is spent reproducing RFI over the actual music or video content.  Because RFI collection and contamination occurs at ten times or more the pulses per second the music or video content contains, your gear spends FAR MORE time reproducing RFI then it does the actual audio or video signal content.  Bear in mind that humans cannot hear radio frequencies so you do not notice this, other then the poor performance you hear & see versus the live unrecorded unreproduced event.  Because DAC chips and op-amps and video scaling chips are but a few examples of chipsets and electronic parts which contain metal just like antenna's do. Then we have all of the metal circuit board traces and all of the wiring which are in fact also constantly collecting all of the radio frequencies generated by the numerous clocks inside the unit as well as millions of frequencies of RFI which are in the airwaves all around us.  Typically well over 100ft of antenna inside the typical consumer audio or video unit when you add up all the signal traces, wiring, transformer wiring, length of traces embedded within the chipsets etc.  It is no wonder the promise of digital has never lived up to the best analog. The best analog playback devices still fall short of the live original event. Remember that phono cartridges and analog microphone and phono preamplifiers collect and amplify and inject RFI into your music signal content just as digital does.

Here's what’s going on with all stock "high end" audio & video gear:

 
No internal shielding/attenuation/dissipation/dampening of radio frequency nor electromagnetic radiation. Nothing to prevent external RF from being soaked up by every metal containing part and wire inside the unit and reproduced right along with the music above a range at which you can hear, however it ruins performance: weak bass, flat fuzzy veiled, irritating, low rez, spatially flat, loss of imaging, etc.
 
Naked signal wiring, naked power supply wiring & parts, naked video scalers, naked op-amps, naked DSP chipsets, naked DAC's, ALL naked electronic parts & naked wiring. Because all chipsets and all electronic parts and wiring contain metal, they attract & collect radio frequencies and magnetic radiation injecting both RFI and EMI energies into the music and video. This has the constant effect of causing washed out grainy flat dull sound and picture quality. Sub par performance that is nowhere near live. The most expensive brands are all NAKED inside, contaminated with unintended harmful out of bandwidth energies that rob power supplies hundreds of thousands of times per SECOND. Self-generated radio frequency contamination depletes power supplies roughly 100 times faster then the actual music or video signals do.
 
Naked parts & wiring = Poor Signal Fidelity & Poor Performance
 
   Most salesmen and magazine reviewers are totally unaware of how compromised stock "high end audio" truly is.
