ERS Paper - picture and video thread - Page 2

That part 2 video was great. One question, if I can hear your clock and every little movement of your headphone cable... why can't I hear any music playing when they are on your head? You must listen very quietly.

Or maybe it's all in my head? Maybe I never press play but I think I do. That's why the improvements are so huge every time.

you really should get extra and use it as wallpaper - just around your audio equips will be suffice. Most importantly...an ERS made paperhat:


*make a better looking one...this hat sux*

this is to avoid any possible EMI getting into your brain and distort your hearing senses. No point protecting your equipments if your senses aint functioning properly right?

Already tried it. I removed it because I needed it for my Cary transport. I don't have any left to try it again.

Ok, I listened to it again at louder volume and I can hear music from that video in the last few seconds, it's subtle.
Now I know I'm not insane, unless the music I heard from video was from my head also...

Good to know. I guess I just listen a lot louder than you do.

You ought to get more of these....where did you get them btw? I'm interested in it.

It is imperative that you make yourself some ERS paper hat and clothings. Do not forget that for every atom in the human body, there are 2-3 electrons around it. Human body is susceptible to EMI just as tubes are.

Anyone have any links on this paper and what it is supposed to accomplish? Why is it so expensive?

This is one of the vendor pages, but they have a bunch of information about it, plus links to some reviews:

It sounds like the TEMPEST shielding the military uses. I doubt there are many civilian applications, which is probably why it's so expensive. That, and it's an "audiophile" product. Look at how expensive even fuses can be when they turn into audiophile products!

I think that the ERS tape would work a lot better for wrapping cords. Question though, isn't this mainly for digital components? What do you hope to acheive by wrapping your power cables?

Few months ago I tried ERS adhesive sheet to wrap around a few inches of the end of my Valhalla and it sounded muddy with loss of detail so I removed it. Now I don't have the shield touching the cable and there are no weaknesses, the improvement in detail is crazy.

Yes. It works best when putting them inside the chassis first. But with Valhalla I'm not so sure anymore, it sounds like the cable costs 10 times more now.

I don't hope, I have already achieved.

Valhalla doesn't have the same shielding as PS Audio cables which is why the background isn't as black. Deep bass was always much better with xStream Statement, but not anymore. After the ERS treatment I'm hearing some of the Statement sound signature (dark, deep and heavy) but with an increase in speed, there are no weaknesses whatsoever. With more resolution everything is improved, RFI/EMI was hiding that resolution.

Thanks for the explination. It sounds like you are certainly happy, and in the end, that is all that matters.
