The Rectifier Diode Mod
Replaces 9 - 12 of the original diodes. The Diode upgrade is considered the
most cost effective mod for Audio gear. These Fairchild "Stealth" exceptionally
soft recovery Diode minimizes switching transits and ringing in the main Power
Supply circuits. These diodes are less noisy than ordinary diodes resulting in
less distortion, and improved imaging.
DSP 7000/9000'S, all TheaterMasters models = $225.00
DSP-1000 = $195.00

Noble Sonic Treatment
We have developed a new method for enhancing sonic improvements for all gear:
Noble Sonic Treatment. Any part of your AV system can be treated by this new
system. These include Pre-amps, Amps, Processors, AV Receivers, interconnects,
speaker drivers, caps, tubes and valves, wire and connectors just to name a few.
If some part of your system is still not sounding as you would like, this may help
raise it up to a better standard. I am having good results with this system with a
variety of pieces. Note: This is not a Cryo treatment chamber. It is a method
that I have developed which is safe for all components. $150.
Elna SII, limited quanity of Black Gate/Rubycon Capacitor
This Power Supply Cap upgrade replaces 4 -16 of the most important caps on
the board. These replacement caps are made by Black Gate or Rubycon. This
mod will improve overall sonic performance.
DSP 7000 = $225.00 single-ended or $275.00 balanced
DSP-9000 and TM Classic = $155.00, $275.00, $395.00 single-ended
or $275.00, $495.00, $695.00 balanced
TM E/O/S =$275.00
TM8/8000/Pro = $195.00
TM8800/Pro = $95.00

Dissipative Noise Attenuation (DNA) filters.
The ultimate solution for eliminating unwanted energy by turning in into heat.
The DNA approach will often reduce unwanted energy that thwarts attempts
to remove by traditional approaches. Eliminate the noise and what remains is
pure music. These filters are placed on the power supply buss of critical
components including DACs and output amps.
$60.00 for each DNA installed, all brands
Low Pass Filters (LPF)
Our LPFs reduce noise that is inherent in the analog amplifier / driver amplifier,
reduce noise that is coupled into the analog amp output from the power supply
busses, reduce the considerable conversion noise caused by the DACs in digital
audio equipment. LPF can be installed in the output stage of any analog circuit
or installed into cabling such as our Analog-Precise.
$95.00 for 2 channels + $20.00 per each additional channel, Single-ended output,
with Vishay resistors add $25 per channel.
$125.00 for 2 channels + $40.00 per each additional channel, balanced output,
with Vishay resistors add $45 per channel.
Items below reflect limited time wholesale prices
Single-ended Level I = $425.00 per pair
Single-ended Level II = $525.00 per pair
Balanced Level I = $525.00 per pair
Balanced Level II = $625.00 per pair
Balanced Outputs Upgrade
We are now offering Balanced Outputs for Pre-Pros and CD players that only have
RCA single-ended analog outputs. The balanced driver circuitry is wired using 99.9999
pure silver wire and Teflon sleeving, terminating in a pair of male panel-mount XLR
connectors with gold pins. Single-ended outputs are retained. In some units with a
crowded back panel circuit board, this involves the addition of a small external box
to the back of the unit as seen in the associated photo. In other cases, where room permits,
we may be able to install directly into the back panel. Price: $495 based on EAD CD-1000
transport. Other units please call for price.
Burr Brown driver
Low distortion 0.0005% @ F=1 KHz
High slew rate 15V/uS
High capacitance load drive
XLR Balanced Outputs, add-on chassis
Balanced Analog Inputs Upgrade
We are now offering Balanced Inputs for Pre-Pros and amplifiers that only have single-ended
RCA analog inputs. This includes the addition of a balanced input circuitry, using 99.999 pure
silver wire and Teflon sleeving and terminating into gold-plated female panel-mount XLRs
connectors. Call for pricing.
Burr Brown op amp
Ultra-low distortion 0.00008%
High slew rate 20V/uS
Vishay/Caddock Resistor Mods
Ultra-premium 0.1% precision Vishay and Caddock resistors aids musical
transparency. The non-inductive design allows faster settling times thus
minimizing distortion of the sound. Also available Noble's new UHPR Vishay
resistors with TCR of 0.05 PPM and precision tolerances to +/- 0.01%.
$32.00 per resistor installed. Minimum 2 resistors required for 2 channel.
The combined DNA (Dissipative Noise Reduction) circuit with our wideband
LPF (low pass filter) offer an exceptional breadth of the rejection of noise
and interference, and provides a particularly effective solution to the
Electric Field Shielding
Usefull for reducing the electric field emanating from transformers that could
induce noise into other parts of the audio circuit. For reference, a small transformer
is about $62.00
Discounts of 10% for multiple Mods over $500.00
All modifications will come with a 6 month warranty on the modified
parts and workmanship.
