If you going extreme why not do it REALLY extreme.
I think you'll need the whole kit.

For the cables inside the computer
For the windows
New doors
And finally, the listening room

And if you want to go really overkill, you could still get the tent and place it inside the cage.

Transports to color the sound

Wrapping computer made it worse. The sound got way too warm, I didn't like it so I removed all the paper and then it got too bright and edgy! Then I put back the 1 sheet which was at the edge of the case covering only the soundcard. Synergy was back! This is the signature I heard yesterday. I didn't think ERS for computer would make such a big difference.

I remember now a few months ago I had my Cary transport wrapped with ERS, it sounded too warm and smooth, I didn't like it. When I removed it the sound got edgier but I still liked it.
I don't think going extreme inside the Cary is a good idea anymore, especially with the adhesive sheets I bought, I don't want it to be permanent. I paid extra for the adhesives just to put inside Cary, I don't know what to do with them now.

I have realized again that I like the sound of a jittery transport, why else would computer sound acceptable to me? I need to input some noise into the transport so it gets edgier. I also like the Feet of Silence for my transports more than Magix. However, for only the PSU I liked Magix more than Feet of Silence. I also like ERS Paper around the PSU. With the Cary transport I also have ERS around the transformer and I like it there. Transformers and power supplies seem to benefit the most from ERS, it gives higher resolution to the sound.


Too much ERS Paper makes it sound worse, 100 sheets is good enough. Wrapping headphone cable made it worse, wrapping transport made it worse, but wrapping everything in the middle made it better! The best way to color the system seems to be with the transport. If you make the transport edgy you hear it at the other end.

Patrick, have you tried the ERS paper on your Q-Tips?
post #171 of 376
Wrap everything in the house while you're at it. People probably think you're crazy if they're not audiophiles .

this stuff really works, and the difference is huge.

No more shielding = Saving money!

I just realized how much money I'm going to save when I don't need to buy more shielding. I had also planned to buy one of those Carbon Fiber computer cases. But now I don't need to because it would sound too warm otherwise.

It's not that I have entered the point of diminishing returns (it's the opposite, the improvements keep getting bigger and bigger), but because I don't like what the further improvements do to the sound.


Or maybe the problem is with the copper traces of all the PCB's in the system and I need to make the computer edgy to compensate for it. Need to get some silver PCB's... But why bother. My back is still aching from tweaking, I think it will be injured for many months now.
I remember a year ago I was cutting the grilles of K1000 with small scissors, it was painful because the grilles were so stiff, I had to squeeze hard with the scissors to cut through the metal. Afterwards I felt pain in my fingers. For half a year I couldn't use the scissors at all, it hurt too much. Now when I'm touching myself I can feel the forefinger still hurts a little when I press at a certain spot, man, it's a permanent injury now. But when I cut ERS Paper I use bigger scissors and don't have a problem since the handle contacts my fingers at a different spot.
I hope my back will recover, otherwise I can't bend over and stuff when they put me in prison for extreme tweaking the street at night with night vision goggles. Maybe it's a good thing to give as an excuse to the cellmate because I don't also want an injury in my rear because then I would get walking problems too.

I had also planned to wrap the whole forest with ERS Paper so the RFI from radio towers is reduced before entering my room. It's the best way to do it. But it would have been too exhausting to climb up all the trees to wrap them.

I also wanted to wrap the city streets with ERS Paper as well, but police would just have taken them down anyway. I can't afford to buy so much ERS Paper anyway, all those bridges that needs to be covered, and the bottom of them too. I need to be hanging under the bridge with my scotch tape, it will not hold there forever so I need to come there every day and slap more tape on.

Just make sure your cellmate wears ERS paper just to be on the safe side.

it's better to use a better dielectric for PCBs like teflon. for DIY applications, you can order the teflon PCB which improves the sound.

Audio cube with nanobots inside building the connections

While doing it extreme it's better to just remove the PCB in the first place. Just put all the components into the non-conducting liquid and mix some Carbon Fibers and hardening gel or something to make it all stiff. The end result is a cube with the components spread out inside. The whole cube itself is the chassis and you can look inside, but you can't open it up. At the rear of the cube are the connectors.

PCB is a bad design because it is 2 dimensional, with the cube you can put the components in 3 dimensions which would result in a shorter signal path. The Carbon Fibers surrounding each component will reduce the EMI. All of the components inside the cube will be connected to each other without any solder joints. All the components will be manufactured at the same time with nanobots running inside and building the connections. Instead of adding crappy silver wiring between the components the nanobots just create the silver material from scratch. The end result is perfect connections with no solder joints.

The nanobots could also build extra shields inside the cube, the nanobots would permanently live inside the cube and constantly "repair" the internals if there are any problems. Outside the cube is a display where you can choose the settings, you can control the temperature of each component inside and how much EMI you want to input to it to choose the coloration you want.
Since you can choose the coloration you can put the whole audio system inside the cube. Just 1 cube for everything. No power conditioning or anything, the nanobots will repair the AC anyway. Just 1 box, plug one end to the wall and the other end to your headphones.

This is great, now I don't need to move into the ERS Papered levitating cave with the nuclear power plant on top with Valhalla cables hanging down from it. Just put 1 cube on the table and it's done!

nanobots could also band together and create replicas of human brains, then develop into a whole new civilization on the micro scale, then finally when they reach singularity, build up to our proportions or even larger via advanced materials. when that day comes, patrick will go up to their leader, pour a vat of ers pulp onto it and curse it for causing a lack of black background, which in turn destroys any possibility of symbiotic relations between the two races and doom us all to the wrath of the nanobot leader. Somehow the leader cannot summon the rest of his empire to turn into dust and infiltrate our porus skins(with malicious intent of course) because- alas, the pulp has dried and embedded it into a machine's worst nightmare, a dielectric tomb which lays in a conductive metal foil box(a faraday tent added by patrick when he thought the ers pulp was not enough). The rest of the robots have been put on standby to wait for orders from their representitive, but it seems they never get their answer, and in the meantime mother nature decides to have another funny little hurricane and that swirls over the robot cities and rusts em because patrick had extracted all the protective materials on the robot world because he thought it affected the dielectric properties of whatever it covered.
Thus ends the time of the robots.
