McIntosh, TimePortal and Furman with Signature Edition Upgrade

“Like a lot of people, once I was able to put together an AV system of high end quality equipment, I started looking into upgrading power cables, interconnects, and the like.  Not being a technically oriented person I only had my personal sensibilities to work with.  The idea that very good quality cable that is also loaded with shielding to get rid of RFI EMI made sense to me.  After doing some research I decided that if I am to do it right, upgrading my equipment in furtherance of that shielding made a lot of sense to me as well. 

Thus far, the Upgrade Company has performed their unique Signature Edition Upgrade & RFI EMI Riddance Technology” for my McIntosh MB100 Media Player and McIntosh MVP901 Blu-ray SACD CD player.  The results were immediately substantial, improving the quality of both sound and video.  I found David to be accessible, informative, and very comfortable to work with. Im not usually that easily impressed; yet here I amimpressed!  

In addition, I purchased an SE Upgraded Furman Elite 20PFi power conditioner and a 20-amp TimePortal Statement power cord and a few 15-amp TimePortal power cords and a TimePortal HDMI for my MVP901.  I am very pleased with the results.  I am hoping that at some point I will be able to ship over my McIntosh MX121 and McIntosh MC205 to complete the riddance of RFI EMI.

Thanks to David at The Upgrade Company for the support along the way!

Furman Elite 15PFi With Signature Edition Upgrade

I’ve had my entire system SE Upgraded and I love it!!!  Sound is amazing.  I haven’t heard a system anything like it.  Stock gear sounds dull flat small veiled no bass or highs no liquidity, depth, air, no 3D.  Shielding & ridding massive amounts of RFI EMI is simply beyond amazing.  Here’s what I’ve had done so far over the past two years:
Oppo BDP-105 1st comparison started it all
NAIM preamp+amp+Outboard & Cables to connect PSU my 2nd Upgrade  Holy Cow!!
TimePortal Reference power cords (Beat everything) my 3rd Upgrade 
Furman Elite 15PFi 4th Upgrade Wow!!
TimePortal Reference RFI EMI RIDDED Speaker Cables (killed high end Morrow)
TimePortal Statement RCA x 3pr WOW!!!
Audio Logic 34MXL Balanced Tube DAC with MunDorf Silver/Gold/Oil caps & Mundorf Silver/Gold wire NOS Black Gates & Amperex  NOS Tubes OMG but SE Oppo beats stock DAC’s! All of them 
TimePortal Statement SDIF Digital to DAC 
another Wow!!
Next up is a new SE Upgraded VCAP’d EAR 834p MC/MM Phono stage in near future once my piggy bank gets replenished

Furman Elite 20PFi Power Conditioner with Signature Edition upgrade & Bybee Purifiers

I didn’t want to believe that getting a power strip—well, as it turns out the Furman Elite 20PFi is a hell of a lot more than a power strip—could make a difference in the quality of my listening pleasure—but it did and it did big time. Highs were sweeter, lows deeper and more resonant and the overall experience of having a top quality, filtered power source created a sound experience that made my previous power conditioner sound dull, dingy and uninspired. I’m not very audiophile when it comes to adjectives, but I do know good sound. I love live music and listen to it often. I have a top quality system largely developed for me by The Upgrade Company after struggling for years with store bought products--good ones but largely off the shelf without the technology and care that The Upgrade Company gives to each and everyone of its upgraded products.

When David Schulte told me about the Furman I didn’t want to believe him. What could a power strip add to my B&W 802 Nautilus speakers, my SE upgraded Onkyo processor, my SE upgraded Oppo 105 and my ATI 300 watt per channel amp. Frankly, I didn’t want to spend the extra bucks on the SE upgraded Furman, but am I glad I did.

By providing the purest power with the least interference, electronically reproduced music takes a quantum leap in sound quality. If you can afford it, buy it. If you can’t, save for it. But make sure that eventually you add one to your system. David also talked me into the Bybee option. Frankly, I haven’t the vaguest idea what these are except that they cost very little by comparison to everything else I’ve spent money on and once a part of your system, it too improves sound quality. Its another noise filter and therefore another step in creating electronically reproduced music that imitates live music.

I attend a lot of concerts and musical performances. Electronically reproduced music generally does not give you the live sound and the live experience. The wizardry and magic of The Upgrade Company, however, will get you as close as you can come to the real McCoy. If you don’t believe me, try something out. Upgrade Co. has a generous return policy. Try the Furman or Oppo perhaps first.

Oppo 105 SE upgraded, Furman Elite 15PFi Power Conditioner w/SE upgrades, TimePortal Reference Power Cords

Here is a testimonial for The Upgrade Company website on the purchases I've made so far for my system.

I started out by upgrading the source first per Upgrade's recommendation:

A brand new SE upgraded Oppo BDP-105. Against a stock Oppo BDP-105 which had quite a bit of burn in time, the SE 105 was night and day superior using any adjective you want. With burn-in period completed, the Signature Edition upgrade firmly puts Oppo's into that rarified fine analog LP playback dimension throwing a huge lush airy liquid simply surreal sound stage with brilliant highs and big, bold, huge dynamics, full bodied yet fast & tuneful bass response, simply crystal clear & musical, even on my worst discs like the old Beatles. The comparison to the stock 105 is positively stunning. On the video side, I played a couple of music videos which I know well to A-B compare the stock & SE upgraded 105's. I was impressed with the greatly (not just slightly) improved color saturation, lack of grain and haze, improved detail and resolution of the RFI/EMI shielded 105. The stock player looks washed out in comparison and grainy. Your SE upgrade is a much bigger bang for the buck over buying a far expensive player or even new speakers. Speakers can only reproduce what the source is giving it, right?

Because the 105 SE purchase blew away my expectations, and hearing what your SE upgrades did for my brother Rob's system, I went ahead and ordered TimePortal Reference power cords and your SE upgraded Furman Elite 15PFi power line conditioner which are unbelievable. The RFI/EMI riddance technology in the TimePortal power cord and Furman conditioner more then doubled the performance.

Both the sound and the picture were dramatically improved. Even my power amp sounds a lot better through the SE upgraded Furman.

An audiophile friend of mine is very critical of digital and listens only to vinyl. He didn't like my system at all prior to the SE upgrade to the 105, TimePortal power cords and SE upgraded Furman power conditioner. He really surprised me when he said the sound is now comparable to a really expensive system with the warmth and clarity of a great turntable without the usual clicks and pops. He was genuinely impressed and wondered how you pull this off. I directed him to Upgrade's website to learn more.

Put me down for an 8' pr of TimePortal RFI/EMI shielded speaker cables. I'll send you my NAIM preamp and amp in a couple months. My brother could not believe the improvement your cable rebuild SE upgrades made to his older TimePortal power cords, TimePortal interconnects and TimePortal speaker cables. That RFI EMI stuff is well worth $99 @ foot to install on cables. I'm sold after hearing the before and after in his system. It's a 1,000 times better with all the SE upgrades to his entire system.

Thanks a bunch!
