I'm just saying that I'd rather have a peaceful environment rather than far-fetched stories, especially when we've heard so many already.

I think the environment would be a lot more peaceful around here if the pack of insufferable 17 year olds who think they own the bandwidth of this website and can crap on any thread they like would do more listening than talking.

And I think someone who's been in the community for more than six months has a right to say what he thinks the site should be like.

Not in the middle of someone else's thread, he doesn't.

OK I may have started all this by posting my thoughts about Patricks tweaks, however why he was banned is none of our business. This thread is audio related. And while I may find it a bit odd it has every reason to be here. This argument is getting pretty juvenile, let's just simmer down and get back to the subject at hand, which is the extreme tweak issue. I love a good debate, but I can find this kind of bickering at any gradeschool playground. And no "well he started it" crap, let's talk about how you feel about this kind of tweaking.

I for one think it's a waste of money, but that is only my opinion, and I wouldn't be high brow enough to think my opinion is the only relevant one.

Anyone else want to state their opinion on the extreme tweak issue?

well, my take on the matter is if he's using these isolating feet right. the magix leviatational feet or whatever. they are supposed to isolate the equipment from whatever they're sitting on and essentially make them float

so based on this, wouldn't changes to the floor's damping not have any effect on the isolated equipment?

like, i sort of understand the theory behind it all but never would go out of my way for such tweaks even though this one's free i wouldn't go to the trouble of getting one at least not the way Patrick did =) that and I couldn't afford it if i wanted

Placing books or other weight on top of the components is a waste of money? It's for free!

I think he's talking about your rock.

Have the Chineese been able to reverse engineer this as of yet, or is it intellectual property gaurded by the Turks? Had you reviewed the white paper on this technology? Perhaps a further indepth review should be conducted amongst your peers???

I searched around my room and couldn't find any other weight that fit the rear of my P300. And then I opened the closet door and there the Marmor ball was, it was telling me "Put me in! Put me in!", and so I did.

Dampening helps to a degree a 10kg sphere is more likely to damage housing to the point of damaging components, no about some dampening helps, but honestly the best dampening would require serious electronic work with an iron and some soft glue. That being said I wouldn't mind having a couple 5 kg spheres to have around.

Patrick, 2 notes:
1. If you want to prove people wrong, why don't you invite them to a mini-meet at your place. That way its "put up or shut up".

2. If your serious about upgrades, may I make a suggestion: Auralex foam wall treatment. No one ever talks about this at headfi, because its primarily for speakers and reflections, etc. But I put up basically a solid wall of Auralex foam that is 2 " thick, in 2x2 foot squares. It is along the 3 walls in the corner where I listen to music. It creates a 'dead' space. It is not optimal for speakers (in this much quantity), because it kills TOO much sound. But this is perfect for headphones, as it makes your environment more quiet. So basically it enhances the "blackground" and/or noise floor of your music.

The foam does this by absorbing sound waves.

I honestly think you would get a bigger tweak with a room full of this treatment than with rocks, and it is perfect for the 'perfectionist' as it comes in many thicknesses, colors, sizes, shapes,....


*edit: oops, didn't realize you were located in Sweden, lol

BTW Patrick, do you find the new improved Vahallea cable to be calling you to upgrade?

Now there is a shoot out I believe we all would be interested for you to report on. Lots of stones thou'

The Marmor ball wasn't the only thing I bought from Turkey. I have something special for my DAC1 too! I will do A/B-ing against my books now!
