It can be, but you need to know proper technique and follow through, which this emoticon is not an example of. You never want to stand under the rear end of the horse while beating unless you wish to receive a horse manure product yourself.

It's all in the hips, it's all in the hips.

Al this spanking, manure and dead animal talk made me suddenly start thinking about the movie Freddie Got Fingered, not pretty.

Fascinating! The lenghts people go to actually brainwash themselves with such products. I can understand all the technolove in it ... there's something sexy about an extremely heavy, solid plug, everything in gold etc. And there's the desire to separate you from others, being unique or basing your self-esteem or definition of yourself on things you buy (also rather common with cars etc). But it's truly absurd. Talking to those people is like talking to some Extremist from the local Bible Talk group of whatever university. Stubborn belief in unproven stories.

Here are some more interesting products:

An .. er ... Pen?
AUDIOPRISM CD STOP LIGHT PEN - elusivedisc

It has four beams, man, FOUR!1111 L1k3 OMG!+
MUSICDIRECT - BEDINI - QUADRI-BEAM ULTRA CLARIFIER

Fascinating. I think they're bit cheaper over at IKEA:
Silver Rock Signature Knob: Reference Audio Mods
Please notice, how "The sound becomes much more open and free flowing with a nice improvement in resolution. " with this. It is btw made for this:
Silver Rock Potentiometer Signature Version: Reference Audio Mods
Just in case you want to spend slightly more dollars on a volume knob.

I just literally gasped at the prices and spiel of the knob and potentiometer signature version. How much?!!!

Also, micro vibrations from a knob? :lol:

Voon,
No. What's really fascinating is that these supposed Stereophile audio gurus think they are hearing a difference. They might be but it's most likely placebo induced. Some modifications do make a noticeable difference, but a stop light pen? Oh yes. This magic coating will prevent the little known 0.3111 and 0.95574 bits (located between the 0s and 1s) from polluting your system. Gimme a break.

And the BEDINI - QUADRI-BEAM ULTRA CLARIFIER, only available in the continental US. You know why? Because only Americans would fall for this sh*t.

The wooden knob from RAM. I'm not going to knock RAM because Kyle is very good at what he does. Vibrations do affect sound quality, this has been known for ages. But would I pay $485 for a wooden knob? No.

That was a great watch. I know I'm addicted to the thrill. It does get in my way at times. But the rewards are greatt; not to mention it's a much healthier alternative to the 10 year addiction to pain pills I had.

Cables Du Jour?

You guys are great! I still have flashbacks from years of demos at CES, and some of the downright crazy things I saw.

Cabling becomes critical in the studio, where we have bays full of countless meters of signal cable. I am spoiled with Van Den Hul, but for the home, there are only a few situations where the runs might be long or critical.

There's no substitute for a well built cable, but if you break out the liquid nitrogen and oven to treat them, I would recommend freezing common items instead, and playing "Mr. Science" for the pure entertainment of it.

As for heavy speaker cables, unless you're driving inefficient 2-ohm assemblies with a kilowatt or more, perhaps one could spend the money on a hand-crafted scale model of a suspension bridge to hold them ( a less expensive cable, of course) above the floor. Spend the money on some custom art. I can just imagine it...

Those little plastic bridges are pretty sad. No style.

I'd recommend walnut with a fine varnish.

I have a hand made set of absurdly expensive speaker cables, removed from service years ago. I could never have justified the expense the original customer paid, but they had somehow become "old hat", and were discarded for something else.

Man, I never understood that concept, the price was never an issue for him. 20 years later, and three children, I still have those pretty humongous cables. At least they work well. But all those thousands, in 1989 dollars yet. Unreal.

Oh, and I have those Oreos too. Original ones. My girls pop em on the speakers on occasion. They come in a pack of 50 or so, isn't it? Damn crumbs always vibrate off, and land on the carpet. I can't hear the difference, personally.

And you don't need glue, just twist 'em, and the creme sticks just fine.
