TimePortal Cables, Mark Levinson No. 532H amp, CAT SL-1 Signature tubed pre, ZESTO balanced tubed phono preamp all with our Signature Edition Upgrade & RFI EMI RIDDANCE technology installed.

Dear Audio Addict (this is in fact a term of endearment as I also am one by definition).  
I have been asked by David to comment on some recent work and purchases that I had requested so I’m doing so. 

First assuming most persons reading this are truly interested in the reproduction of music in the home (regardless if vinyl, yeah! or digital, boo!) are in fact intelligent, have enough monies to pursue this ‘expensive’ hobby. So why are we addicts?  Because stock gear and cabling isn’t satisfying there’s A LOT of music missing and A LOT  of distortion you don’t know you are hearing until you experience a fully RFI EMI Ridded system with the new unique technology by Upgrade Co.

Despite being told consistently that the ability to reproduce  ‘live’ music in the home is not realistic, we keep spending on the hottest new amp/pre-amp/CD player etc. seeking that impossible goal, only to be told 3 months later by magazines that the $10,000 piece of equipment you just bought is already out dated so off we go to buy this new product. Odds are as we move up this equipment carousel we do start to notice boxes are checked(more airy highs/ wider deeper soundstage/more powerful deeper lows) and my favorite— it was like many veils were removed.

Now how does this rambling tie in to my products from The Upgrade Company? I started a few years ago changing various cables to David’s TimePortal products to include all interconnects (except turntable & digital) speaker cables and power cords. These replaced various top of the line cables of a well respected USA high end cable company. With each cable change there was always a marked improvement in sound, all the boxes were checked and no purchase regretted plus I still have no desire to rush out and ‘upgrade’. But something was still missing. But no more. Recently bought new midlevel USA made turntable with a lower level British tonearm. Mounted a well known moving coil cartridge gave me a really nice but not fully satisfying sound. As usual turned to David. Replaced entire tonearm wires and most importantly replaced the tonearm wires to silver and the interconnects with TimePortal Cable Statement RCA’s. Got the arm remounted & table set back up, mounted the same cartridge, put on familiar record and for first time in 40 years was completely drawn into the music. Clearly all the boxes were checked but that didn’t matter. I went to my vinyl collection and have been listening to records I know and bunches I didn’t even know I had. The TimePortal Ground cable was a real surprise also and I can't explain it.  Sucks out RF apparently.

Equipment wise only change was TimePortal Statement interconnects & a TimePortal turntable/tonearm ground cable from the SOTA table to to the SE Upgraded RFI EMI RIDDED ZESTO Balanced tubed phono stage. Believe that this final ground cable change added to my otherwise complete TimePortal Statement pre-power amp cables & power cords & speaker cables.  Synergistic.  Exponentially better.  This final missing link of RFI EMI extracting cabling has lifted me to audio nirvana. Night & Day over Cardas Golden Reference in every way.

As we can’t achieve reproduction of live performances in your home don’t be an idiot and rush out and throw money at the hottest new piece of equipment that will be obsolete in 3 months.  Buy pieces you are happy with yo begin with then get serious about the SE Upgrades & unique TimePortal cabling.  Getting rid of RF is the key! Made a big difference on my ZESTO tube phono stage.

Hope this not too bizarre but I now know that having all TimePortal RFI EMI Ridded cabling is what’s gotton my system to where it is today even after the SE Upgrades to my CAT SL-1 Signature tubed preamp & Mark Levinson No.532H power amp SE upgrades  Same system with top of line Cardas Golden Reference cables - Not even close.

Cannot praise TimePortal Cables enough. They have brought my system to new heights but more importantly my listening pleasure up many levels of enjoyment. I thought I had good stuff to begin with.

Very highly recommended.                            

Pictures to follow.

Dr. Ronald Stroud MD   Voted Alabama's #1 Internist

 

Our "Signature Edition" upgrade we performed to Dr. Stroud's Convergent Audio Technology SL-1 Signature Version vacuum tubed stereo preamplifier

The CAT arrived. The sound is AWESOME! Great job! More later...

UPDATE #1 03/03/14 Already with just a few hours of use the CAT's sound has further improved a lot.  I am a true believer in what The Upgrade Company does.  Keep up the great work!
