My laptop is only temporary for experiments. A netbook with SSD is the way to go! It also needs to be modified.

However, I chose my laptop to be barely good enough to playback 720p movies. I could hear the improvement from Magix in movies too! The sibilance in the voices that I used to complain about was finally gone!
I could also hear it when watching youtube, less sibilance from Magix! The improvement is really HUGE!

Magix are shielded because it would worsen the sound otherwise. Magix gives more low-level detail because the component is floating in free space, it helps with ground vibrations and vibrations from the circuit board itself. Electricity is vibrating.

YouTube - Why Valhalla power cable is better than a woman



How is your cables inside the wall? You must be cable guy. Get a bad feeling when i see those videos. You only destroy gear?

EDIT: Have seen all your videos and have concluded this: ERS Paper is THE bang for the buck upgrade.

Tell me, this is one of those Monty Pythonesce threads, right?

"Electricity is vibrating.". Priceless.

I tried the Magix and I didn't get much improvement. I could still feel the vibrations from the steel mill across town from the power source. Also the magnets themselves seemed to vibrate due to the strong magnetic currents from the increased sun activity this time of year. I cant even imagine how bad it will be in 2012. The vibrations affected both the highs and lows and made them seem muddy. I think the only solution would be to cover my house with magnetic shielding sheets. I will try that later after the vibration free generator is installed.

Surprisingly, the biggest improvement I have noticed was from some sort of cream that a native american shaman gave me. He said that it decreased bad vibrations and increased libido, so I applied it generously to my interconnects, source, amp, and the drivers of my headphone. It really smoothed out everything and made it more enjoyable. Ill post pics and a review later and see if I can get the formula from my shaman.

I'm still shocked of the improvement from Magix under my laptop. It sounds like the sound was boosted by 3dB. I have heard the same 3dB boost when I put toilet paper rolls and ERS Paper around my headphone cable a year ago, the extra loud dynamics were fatiguing and made me sick! I have realized that the reason was because it was the last piece of the puzzle which I put together (I had ERS Paper in my whole system except around the headphone cable!). This time with the system I have now, I had all tweaks put together except for Magix under the laptop, it was the last piece of the puzzle and it made the biggest improvement!

The extra low-level detail and transparency is crazy! I have never heard this much blackness and whiteness while it still being silky smooth! OMG! It appears that HD590 with my low watt system has more transparency than K1000 with dCS sources. I'm also using a tone control cable to compensate for the boomy pads of HD590; ElectraGlide Synapses2 power cable, craziest transparency ever, nothing is close! I think that's the reason HD590 now sound more transparent than K1000 ever did! With my K1000 setup I used to use Nordost Valhalla analog cable to get fake transparency which cut off the bass, but now I use Synapses2 power cable instead because I still need a power cable in the path! Synapses2 doesn't remove the bass like Valhalla did. I'm in love with Synapses2! I'm also in love with Magix, RGC-24 Ground Conditioners and Genesis power cables! I love ERS Paper too! I have my Synapses2 wrapped with it!

I also chose my laptop because the graphics card could support 2560x1600 output. It also has a webcam. Asus X50SL.

If I get a netbook I still need to use a 2nd computer to watch movies with. However, I'm not able to hear what the people say in movies if I don't have Magix under the computer. I have tried it before, I needed to scroll back in the movie all the time, but with Magix it wasn't required because I heard all the words.

No, go for a good pair of spiked running shoes and dig them into your floorboards when listening to music.

So without the Magix the actors start mumbling? Wow that is what I would call psycho-acoustics.

Sorry, but your above statement just sounds...like... like you spent to much time in your bakery.

Without Magix the attack and decay of the sounds are missing and it sounds emptier. I'm not able to hear how the words start and how they end, but with Magix I can.

You know, even if Patrick is a strange cat, his ideas get me thinking in different directions at least. Isolation works well for me with speakers and my dac. Not certain I will ever spend more than $100 on a tweak though. My head-speakers clearly put out words from start to finish.

:head slap: doh; why didnt I think of that??? its so obvious now that you mention it. my method means my headphone cable has to at least 6" longer. yours I could just use the same one I always do. i'm obviously not thinking enough outside the square.

At least you're thinking inside the circle! But wait! The circle has too many sides to think of!

Another good (and cheap) tweak I can recommend is beta blockers, as the human heart produces lots of bad vibrations. It's important to minimize them.
I'd take a beta blocker and then wrap myself like mummy in ERS paper, and then put the headphones on.
