TimePortal Power cord photos showing the cable gauges in Signature, Statement, Reference power cords which contain more RFI EMI Ridding materials and surface area then a power conditioner:

 

  1. Left side is our entry level "REFERENCE" comprised of 3x10ga copper which is standard for most audiophile power cords.  Reference is now  wrapped 4x with RFI EMI Ridding materials.
  2. Middle is our "STATEMENT" comprised of 4x 8ga copper which is wrapped 8x with RFI EMI Ridding materials end to end 360 degrees to shield, dissipate, attenuate, and dampen the cable from vibrations and RFI EMI both internally and externally. 
  3. Right side is our top of the line "SIGNATURE" with 4x 6ga. copper conductors.  Signature receives 13 layers of RFI EMI materials wrapped end to end 360 degrees to shield, dissipate, attenuate, and dampen the cable from vibrations and RFI EMI both internally and externally.   

 

We offer a -50% off discount on the first TimePortal power cord to find out the unusually large performance gains afforded.

We also heavily discount TimePortal Cables with each paid SE Upgrade order as an incentive to keep the signal integrity high and noise low from component to component.

 

 

The effect of any given tweak on your system will be directly proportional to your systems level of resolution. What may yield a negligible effect in one system will have a profound effect on another. However thats not the case with TimePortal Cables. Id like to comment on "The Myth of Diminishing Returns": Common wisdom holds that there is a point beyond which continued effort and expenditure begins to yield less and less. I have demonstrated to my entire satisfaction to clients all over that this is just not the case.  Actuallong term use and A-B comparison feedback supports this. In fact, I hold the reverse to be true with TimePortal Cables As the system becomes more and more resolving, it yields ever-greater gains with each SE Upgrade and each TimePortal Cables purchase.  The effects of the SE Upgrades and TimePortal Cables grows exponentially versus incrementally as with stock equipment and cablingThe gains are cumulative so that the next TimePortal Cable installed builds with greater efficiency upon the last and so on, because the final system performance is only as good as its worst performing link never the best.  

One TimePortal power cord will consistently deliver otherwise unattainable important improvements to the behavior of a stock or SE upgraded component. It is now common knowledge that the first TimePortal power cord results can be multiplied many times over by installing more TimePortal power cords. It has also been demonstrated that using more than one in a system does indeed greatly increase the overall effect of each TimePortal Cable. How and why it works is a topic for another day, but the key point is that it is imperative to take advantage of these totally unique cables in order to achieve State of the Art sound andvideo quality. 

Simply by substitutingyour existing high priced power cords with the totally unique TimePortal Statement or better yet Signature power cords,your system will becometremendously better sounding with greatly improved video as the new cables burn in and season, even right out of the box in most instances due toTimePortals RFI EMI RIDDANCE & EXTRACTION technology.  TimePortal power cords are much more effective then a power conditioner, due to the large amount of materials built into each 6power cord end-to-end 360 degrees around which affords a huge amount of  RFI EMI riddingmaterials& surface area to rid RFI/EMI collected out of the airwaves after power leaves the power conditioner and to continue extracting RFI/EMI still present after the power conditioner.  

TimePortals top series is Signature. The Signature power cord is by all accounts the thickest and heaviest commercially available power cord. They are set and forget, buy for life. An essential component. Each Signature power cord has 9 hand wrapped 360 degree end-to-end layers of RFI EMI Riddance Extraction and massive 4x6ga. conductors. Each Signature power cord produces 12x the results of the 6 layer 4x10ga. Statementpower cord.  Each Signature power cord actually contains 12x more RFI EMI Riddance surface area and materials over Statement. Circumference of a circle is pi = 3.14159 x diameter, so 4x thicker wire is 4x diameter which is 4x3.14159 or more than 12x surface area for a total of 12x the RFI EMI Riddance and Extraction power. This extremely powerful technology is the reason why Signature power cords, interconnects, HDMI and speaker cablesproducesuchunusually largeimprovements over any other cable brand in existence. You will really see the difference in video and hear the difference that a TimePortal Signature cable produces for you. TimePortal Signature power cord has more then 2,000-5,000% MORE RFI EMI Riddance Extraction surface area and materials over a power conditioner, on a 6length power cord.

We started the TimePortal line with Reference. The improvement was unmistakable. 

A few years later we then doubled the gauge on the power cord and speaker cables and added 3 more RFI EMI Riddance & Extraction layers to all cables. Statement was born.

Those who tried Statement could no longer bear to listen to Reference.

Three more years went by, and given that my mind is always presenting me with new and interesting options based on past experience and available materials, I came up with the notion to once again double the power cord and HDMI and speaker cable and interconnect wire gauges and move up to 9 layers of RFI/EMI materials employed to produce the Signatureline.Again there was a definite giant leap (double wire gauge is more than x6 surface area) in performance.  The effect of these two upgrades was quite astounding in the realm of greater density of information, deeper heftier more powerful airier taught defined bass response, increased organics information & clarity in the midrange and top end, with much greater ease and musicality, larger more precise 3D soundstage Much greater depth and image specificity. Yes all this from a$4,000 MSRP TimePortal Signature power cord.

If you've ever held a Reference power cord in your hand you know that it is light. You might think, "Where's the beef?" if you hadn't experienced what it can do. Then holding a Signature today is very heavy and real game changer. Some swear it must be storing power due to the huge effect it produces on the system. But what its doing is ridding RFI pulses from going upstream which relieves the electronics and their power supplies of a huge amount of workload. Signature is arguably the heaviest power cord made today. Thickest wire gauge at 2x 6ga on the hot. A given principle in power delivery is that thicker wire and added weight are a good thing. However theyre a bit of a project to install due to needing to be gently massaged and bent into desired position, and supported with Velcro straps or zip ties and Furutech or other cable risers.  Theres just no substitute for this. Well worth the trouble once burned in as nothing else produces this level of performance.

You might well ask what I am smoking. (Call me for an answer to that!)

Most recently we have been receiving a healthy uptick in orders for both Signature and Statement power cords, HDMI, interconnect and speaker cables. TimePortals power cords, HDMI & SPDIF/AES-EBU cables are proving to be the worldvery best by a truly wide margin.RCA & XLR are not but hit way above their price points.  Utilizing TimePortal HDMI cables throughout including to the display device is akin to spending 5x-10x more on your display or projector. Yes its that big of an improvement over other HDMI cables as they do not have RFI EMI Riddance& Extraction technology. And much better then fiber optic! 

In sum, after numerous testing and trials and actual numerous customer feedbacks, highly significant system performance improvements arise from swapping in TimePortal Cables. Each cable unleashes more of the previous cables performance, affords a far greater cost-to-performance boost giving more bang-for-the-buck then buying the latest magazine touted components, 100% guaranteed for 30 days in your system. What cable company gives you a 30 day trial period? TimePortal Cables add even more resolution to any already great high resolution system. Id be happy to help you experience these results in your system on a trial basis. Call or write me today.
