Synergistic Research Ethernet Switch UEF
- Includes 5ft Foundation 12awg Power Cable £599 value and Synergistic Research Orange Fuse £155 value.
Over the years, Synergistic Research have developed technologies that redefined what we can expect from our audio systems. Products like the original PowerCell with its patented EM Cell set the bar as the world’s first non current limiting AC power conditioner.
Then they adapted the EM Cell technology to the Tranquility Base isolation platforms that condition signal while still in a component and power cords with Active EM Cells built-in to function as inline power conditioners. Synergistic Research even applied EM Cells to bias system ground in there Active Ground Block ground conditioners and to the FEQ and Atmosphere ULF Field Generators that control room acoustics without the need for massive traditional room treatments.
They have continued this decadelong adaption of EM Cell technology to condition the digital signal in an Ethernet Switch for perhaps there most transformational product since the original PowerCell line conditioner. It is no secret that digital sound quality has taken monumental strides forward since the days of Perfect Sound Forever. It’s also no secret that many audiophiles, including Synergistic Research’s Lead Designer, find much to love about the sound of analog playback from LP’s and Tapes.
To quote the late great Harry Peirson of the Absolute Sound, The best way to enjoy digital is to not listen to analogue, and in many respects, we agree. A state-of-the-art analog rig still excels in areas of spacial and holographic realism, as well as a harmonic texture that leaves many digital systems sounding somewhat flat and bleached in comparison.
Enter the new Ethernet Switch UEF with UEF and Active EM Cell technology to close the gap between digital playback and state-of-theart analog tapes and LPs. To accomplish this, Synergistic Research combined all EM Cell and UEF Tech applications and Galileo level chassis construction into a single component.
EM Cell and UEF Tech to condition the digital signal? Check. An EM Cell to act as a built-in Tranquility Base? Check. A chassis milled from a solid billet of aluminium like the Galileo Active Ground Block? Check. Use of Carbon Fibre to eliminate the effects of chassis vibration on the signal? Check.
They have also included a direct connection port so you can star ground your new Ethernet Switch UEF to an SR Ground Block for an even lower noise floor. Subjectively in SR’s reference system with an Ethernet Switch UEF they heard a more natural presentation of space and harmonic texture that rivals the best LP and tape playback.
They also heard a Jet Black noise floor and dynamics analog rigs cannot match. Perhaps they have finally achieved Perfect Sound Forever.
The only question is, have they surpassed analog playback? Only you can answer this question.
