You hit the nail right on the head there. We're all just jealous of your rig and extreme tweaking, and we just wish we could listen to the kind of audio nirvana you have the privilege of listening to every day. We cannot handle the truth that you have superior tweaking skills (did I mention that they were extreme?) and that 10kg stones make huge differences in the sound quality of headphone rigs. We must do everything in our power to stop you from spreading word of your tweaking greatness (that's really why you were banned).

That was sarcasm, by the way, in case your ERS paper didn't pick it up.
I don't know sarcasm, is it something that isn't true?

I thought the spicy text would look "cool" instead of dull and boring.
Since people say I look stiff I have tried to imitate the "cool" people on TV, I see them "hang" and bend their legs in random patterns, they also make their eyes narrower and move their lips more outwards. Sometimes they also nod very slowly.

For some reason your extreme tweaking don't amaze me any longer!
You have taken cable tweaking and the use of ERS papers to a new level.

I don't get this...

All I see is plant pots and paper stuck on to stuff?

If you do get it, that's when there's a problem IMO.

I'll state that I have no issue with Patrick or wish him any ill will whatsoever. I just can't put any real value on his tweak posts due to his bizarre nature.
I doubt that anyone on here would label me as dry or humorless, but I don't think humor is his intention in most of his posts, and that's the pill that's hard to swallow.

Well put Steve.

I found his post amusing and fun. why ban someone for being weird? it's fine by me. I didn't see anything that should warrant him being banned.

different is good so long as it's harmless people.

he's not posting **** or anything crass just sharing his unique perspective. I find it interesting and enjoyed reading it. you don't have to read his posts it's very easy to not click on something lol.

Chillllllllll....

The amazing thing is Patrick was probably told to cool it after the ban and stay on topic, and he has - this has to do with tweaking his rig, right? Kinda? Oh my...

Isn't this forum for people who want better audio quality? I don't see the problem with a tweak that is for free. I guess people like to buy high-end magic instead.

Mass damping is great! There is lot of experimenting to be done with different materials. Bags of sand, books, stones... Maybe even some kind of mud that hardens.

Patrick, you need to find a matched pair for balanced operation of your dampening device.

Silencing you or even reigning you in is not my goal at all. Tweak to your hearts content. Any knowledge or entertainment you bring to any member is A OK with me. Please don't take my posts as mean spirited in any way, they're not intended as such, and I see no harm in this kind of post. I'm just saying that for me after several of these kinds of posts it's hard for me to give you any real credibility. I'm not advocating that anything be done at all, I'm just putting my 2/100ths of a dollars worth in.

I don't care about the credibility, I only care about the truth. In the future we will see who was right, until then I will keep tweaking because it gives better sound, placebo or not.

Even if it is plecebo, if it makes one happy and doesn't harm anyone else, then is it wrong? If a tree falls in a forest. . . .

Actually the tree in the forest question is not as complex as people think.

Question: If a tree falls in the forest and no creature is there to hear it does it make a sound?

Answer: No.

The tree falling will create sound waves, but it is the ear that turns sound waves into sound.

Of coarse if it's covered with ERS paper that's a whole other ball game.

Sweet mod, I think I'll get some balls for myself just like Patrick.

Welcome back!
