Introducing the Synergistic Research Network Router UEF - the world’s only network router guaranteed to improve your system’s performance or your money back. Building on the success of our Ethernet Switch UEF, we applied similar UEF technology to create a network router that dramatically improves all aspects of your system’s performance. During its one-year development program, we evaluated dozens of router boards, searching for the best-sounding circuit as a base to apply our many technologies. We then adapted our award-winning linear power supply initially developed for the Limited Production Galileo PowerCell, plus a patented electromagnetic cell to condition AC entering the unit as well as the digital signal exiting the Network Router UEF. Next, we’ve incorporated a Dual Frequency ULF generator with technology first developed for our FEQ Carbon to actively shield and condition the entire unit with harmonics of the Earth’s Schuman Resonance. For the best possible shielding and control of mechanical vibrations, the active circuit is fitted to a chassis machined from a solid billet of aircraft aluminum with a carbon fiber lid for optimal resonance control. And to voice the router, we developed a custom Carbon Fiber Tuning Disc and affixed it to the circuit for added harmonic texture and liquidity in the sound field. Lastly, we include a Purple Fuse to lower your noise floor and improve holographic realism. Upgrade your digital audio experience with a Synergistic Research Network Router UEF guaranteed to transform your system or your money back. Contact your dealer today for an exciting no-risk in-home trial.

Important Note: The Synergistic Research Network Router UEF does not include internal WiFi functionality. This deliberate omission ensures optimal performance by keeping the WiFi signal isolated from the Network Router. If your system requires a wireless connection (phone, tablet, etc.), it is necessary to connect a separate access point to the SR Network Router UEF.

A WiFi router is not the same as an access point. A WiFi router will not work. We have extensively tested various access points and found that different models seem to have minimal impact on overall performance. Two easy to set up recommendations are the TP-Link EAP245 and NETGEAR WiFi 6 Access Point (WAX214). When setting up your Access Point, set a different SSID than your existing home network.

 

 

Solid Billet Aluminum Chassis

With active EM conditioning.

 

 

Enter our new Network 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, we 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.

 

 

SR Ground Block

This goes to 11.

 

 

Because you would never use power supplies found in your household appliances to power your DAC or Pre-Amp, likewise, you should have a dedicated router engineered for one purpose, to improve the sound of your audio system and not encumbered as the household’s internet router for video games, smart TV’s, smartphones, and general online activity. For maximum performance, use the SR Network Router UEF with an SR Ethernet Switch UEF because breaking up digital switching from digital routing carries sonic benefits you need to hear to believe. And when you ground your entire system to one of our Active Ground Block ground filters, you realize further reductions in your system’s noise floor.

Frequently asked questions.

 

Q. Who needs a Network Router UEF?
         A. Any Audiophile streaming music or using digital sources that require an ethernet connection.

Q. What does a Network Router UEF do?
           A. The Network Router UEF creates an isolated network specifically designed for your audio system, separate from your smart devices, TVs, appliances, etc.

Q. How does a Network Router UEF work?
          A. The Network Router UEF utilizes a combination of advanced SR technologies and components to enhance its performance. It begins with a high-performance router circuit, which is integrated into a chassis made of billet aluminum and carbon fiber. The chassis is further enhanced with carbon fiber footers for vibration control. Internally, the router is equipped with an SR Linear Power Supply (similar to an SR LPS UEF), an Electromagnetic conditioning cell (similar to a Tranquility Pod), a ULF generator (similar to an FEQ Carbon), and a passive ground conditioner (similar to an SR Ground Block). Finally, the unit undergoes high voltage conditioning treatments and is fine-tuned using SR Carbon Tuning Discs placed strategically in specific locations inside.

Q. Does the Network Router UEF have built-in WiFi?
        A. The Synergistic Research Network Router UEF does not include internal WiFi functionality. This deliberate omission ensures optimal performance by keeping the WiFi signal isolated from the Network Router. If your system requires a wireless connection (phone, tablet, etc.), it is necessary to connect a separate access point to the SR Network Router UEF. Two easy to set up recommendations are the TP-Link EAP610 and NETGEAR WiFi 6 Access Point (WAX214)

    Q. Do I still need an SR Ethernet Switch UEF when using a Network Router UEF?
                 A. For achieving the highest performance, we highly recommend utilizing both the Network Router UEF and an SR Ethernet Switch UEF together. Although the Network Router can be used to connect your components directly, the SR Network Router UEF and Ethernet Switch UEF are designed to do two different functions. The Network Router UEF creates an isolated network specifically designed for your audio system, separate from your smart devices, TVs, appliances, etc. While the SR Ethernet Switch UEF is designed to regenerate and duplicate the signal generated by the Network Router UEF. By combining the functionalities of both devices, you can attain the ultimate digital playback experience.

    Q. Is the Network Router UEF difficult to install?
                    A. The Network Router UEF has been designed and configured to provide a plug-and-play experience, making the installation process as straightforward as possible. Here are the steps to follow:

    1. Connect your existing network (modem, router, or switch) to the “IN” port on the Network Router UEF.
    2. Next, connect either your switch (recommended) or your components directly to the Network Router UEF.
    3. If WiFi is required, set up and connect a WiFi access point to the Network Router UEF, and then connect your WiFi device to the access point.

     

    Product Support - At Synergistic Research, we prioritize providing exceptional customer and client support. Our team is available to assist you with installation questions and basic technical inquiries. However, for custom network setup questions concerning integration with your existing home network and/or the SR Network Router UEF, we recommend consulting an IT Network Professional. If necessary, we are happy to provide a reference for such professionals who have experience with the SR Network Router UEF and can offer expert assistance in this area (service charges are billed by the 3rd party support when 3rd party support is necessary).
