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!

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.
