Au24 SE Upgrades for Cables

Most existing Audience interconnects, loudspeaker cables, and digital cables can be upgraded to the latest Au24 SE version. Generally speaking, Au24 SE upgrades are the result of lower mass and improved metallurgy of our cable connectors. The outcome of the Au24 SE upgrade is markedly greater resolution. As Greg Weaver states in his 2013 Positive Feedback Writer’s Choice Award, the Au24 SE upgrade allows previous users of Au24 e cables to hear things that before were inaudible. The Au24 SE upgrade simply allows abundantly more low level information to pass through the cable connection.

Au24 SE Upgrade Prices:

  • RCA interconnects and phono cables - $300
  • DIN > RCA phono cables - $370
  • XLR - $500
  • S/PDIF - $180
  • AES/EBU - $300
  • Speaker cables (spades or banana) - $350
  • Bi-wire speaker cables - $525

PowerChord SE-i Upgrade

Audience powerChords can be upgraded to the latest powerChord SE-i version. Generally speaking, SE-i upgrades are the result of the improved metallurgy of our proprietary AC power connectors, or implementation of optimized wiring geometry. The outcome of the SE-i upgrade is markedly greater resolution. The SE-i upgrade simply allows abundantly more low level information to pass through the power cord connection.

Studio ONE powerChord Upgrade

Audience Au24 series powerChords can be upgraded to the Studio ONE powerChord series. Studio ONE delivers near holographic focus, with imaging that is deep, wide and well-defined. Rhythm and pacing are superb, with noticeably superior transient capabilities. What truly sets Studio ONE apart from its lesser siblings is its tonal purity and dynamics; Studio ONE has a realism and clarity that’s much more in-line with our higher-end models. Studio ONE receives our Extreme High Voltage Process (EHVP), a proprietary process which drives very high voltages, in the range of 800,000v, through the cables doing a more thorough and complete job of burn-in than would otherwise be achievable. The largest benefits of the EHVP process are improved dynamics, coherence, tonal purity, and smoothness.

PowerChord Upgrade Prices:

  • powerChord or powerChord e to powerChord SE-i - $300 ($175 if terminated with powerCon)
  • powerChord SE to powerChord SE-i - $150 ($100 if already terminated with powerCon)
  • Au24, Au24 SE, or Au24 SE-i to Studio ONE - $360 ($300 if already terminated with powerCon)

 Adept Response Power Conditioner Upgrades

Audience offers multiple upgrade options for existing units to greatly enhance performance. Upgrades and pricing varies based on age and current level of unit. Please contact us for further information.

T4 power conditioners comprise a new line of Teflon capacitors that represent the bulk of the cost of the unit. Therefore, Adept Response power conditioners cannot be modified to the highest T4 standard. As such, T4 units must be obtained only as a new conditioner purchase.

ClairAudient Loudspeaker Upgrades

Existing ClairAudient The ONE and 1+1 Loudspeaker systems can be upgraded to the latest V4 or V5 versions respectively. Both models utilize the latest A3S2-16 drivers, 6N OCC internal wiring, ultra-low mass KLEI binding posts and re-tuned passive radiators. Further enhancements are implemented in the 1+1 V5, including modified internal cabinet structure, baffle-step reduction, and high pass frequency circuit. These upgrades significantly improve the overall clarity and dynamics for both models. The 1+1 V5, is transformed enormously to a new class of performance from top to bottom. The 1+1 V5 has notably better bass and can be played considerably louder to facilitate larger listening spaces.

ClairAudient Loudspeaker Upgrades Prices:

  • $900 - ONE V1 to V4
  • $650 - ONE V2 to V4
  • $300 - ONE V2+ to V4
  • $260 - ONE V3 to V4
  • $1,575 - 1+1 V1 to V5
  • $1,075 - 1+1 V2 to V5
  • $700 - 1+1 V2+ to V5
  • $520 - 1+1 V3 to V5
