The World reference in streaming A/V!
Synergistic Research, worlds market leader in high-end audio accessories for over 30 years, nearly had its program complete. The only thing still missing was a serious audio/video grade ethernet switch. As streaming quality completely depends on the quality of the switch, it’s an important step Synergistic Research finally introduced their version of a high-end switch, purely meant for audio and video. A chain is as strong as its weakest link…
Over the years, Synergistic Research 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 noncurrent limiting AC power conditioner. Then, the EM Cell technology was adapted 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 even applied EM Cells to bias system ground in their Active Ground Block ground conditioners and to their FEQ and Atmosphere ULF Field Generators that control room acoustics without the need for massive traditional room treatments. They continued this decade-long adaption of EM Cell technology to condition the digital signal in an Ethernet Switch for perhaps their 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”.
Enter the new Ethernet Switch UEF with UEF and Active EM Cell technology to close the gap between digital playback and state-of-the-art analog tapes and LPs. To accomplish this, they 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 aluminum like our Galileo Active Ground Block? Check. Use of Carbon Fibre to eliminate the effects of chassis vibration on the signal? Check. Finally, a cost-no-object switch, purely meant for high-end audio and video. Bottom line: as good as it gets!
A direct ground connection port is included so you can star ground your new Ethernet Switch UEF to an SR Ground Block for an even lower noise floor. Subjectively in the SR reference system with an Ethernet Switch UEF they hear a more natural presentation of space and harmonic texture that rivals the best LP and tape playback. They also hear 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 with a no-risk money-back guarantee. Find out now by calling your authorized Synergistic Research dealer to arrange your in home audition today.

Synergistic Research Ethernet Switch UEF: een bundel voor datapakketten door René van Es @ hifi.nl
“Bij het omschrijven zou ik kunnen gaan praten over een viool met en zonder randje, een slag op een drumkit, de dynamiek daarvan, een individuele stem of een gitaar. Dat gaat met deze switch niet gebeuren. Omdat de positieve werking over een breed spectrum te bemerken is. Het is niet zozeer dat stukje gitaar dat meer spettert, het is het muziekstuk dat prettiger klinkt, niet warmer of niet zozeer detailrijker, gewoon intenser en vloeiender. Dat gebeurt met klassiek, met pop, met jazz, vocaal en instrumentaal.”
World Premiere Review! Synergistic Research Ethernet Switch UEF by Rick Becker @ enjoythemusic.com
“The same song got a lot better. There was more air and a sense of the venue. The sibilants were brought under better (but not complete) control. The musicians were more specifically located, though not pinpointed. The timbre of instruments seemed more correct and there was more tonal color. The soloists became more real, as did the applause. Overall, the music was considerably more enjoyable, as well it should be for the price difference, clearly proving that better Ethernet switches make a significant difference.”

“We heard a demo of this switch with music playing with the circuitry engaged and not engaged. It was noticeably more lively with the switch engaged. Grounding and better switches seem to be new areas that make a material impact on sound.”
The Final Piece to the Puzzle (searching for an Audiophile Grade Ethernet Switch) by Robert Witrak @ highdeftapetransfers.ca
“It makes a huge stride forward in making digital sound closer to an analog ideal, with a lower noise floor and a much cleaner signal. Honestly, after using the new switch, I wouldn’t want to be without it. This improvement really solidified our mastering chain, and if you utilize an Ethernet Switch, we highly recommend the Synergistic Ethernet Switch together with their excellent cables.”
