ERS Paper collects and stores RFI/EMI inside the paper, it doesn't dump it to ground and it doesn't reflect it. What will happen with all that energy stored? The energy field will increase in size until it reaches a point where it doesn't become any bigger anymore. I don't need to know physics or use measurement devices, I do physics using my ears and audio system, there is a 1cm energy field around the ERS Paper, I can hear it.

People who tried ERS Paper said that it makes it too warm and muddy, but this is not the case when separating it more than 1cm from what it is shielding. It's like opening up a window to the music and you hear all the low-level details which are clear and detailed. Music is very open and it breathes. Background is dead black and the details are crazy white! The dynamics are boosted up and there is more resolution and low-level detail. ERS Paper is so amazing!
Are you hearing improvements in transient response over 30K? I thought the Adam A7 had a problem with that.

ERS Paper made everything more revealing. I can hear the warm-up of my system much easier now. Before when I warmed up my system for 12 hours the difference was only subtle, but now it's HUGE! I thought the Adam A7 speakers were bad which didn't reveal the warm-up process as well as my K1000, but now I have found that it's not true, the A7 are very good, I just needed to wrap my whole system with ERS Paper to hear that.

ERS Paper gives real improvements, not the side step "improvements" from EMU0404 to dCS Elgar Plus DAC or other "reference" sources. I have tried many expensive gear and they just made the sound worse. When I had dCS sources for $31 000 I didn't hear any improvements, I only heard a side step into a different flavor. The EMU0404 USB is $200 and is better IMO.

If there are no tweaks, the high-end gear are better because they cover up the brightness which makes the music more relaxing and easier to hear. I also used tubes for a while because the brightness was too big. But high-end gear are just a band-aid to cover up the real problems.

I also used Valhalla power cables to veil the sound, when Valhalla with Dual Filaments is used for the AC power signal it worsens and weakens the signal because the conductors vibrate more (AC vibrates more than DC). With Valhalla power I got the complete opposite effect of Virtual Dynamics vibration dampened power cables!

I only use Valhalla's Dual Filament technology for low-level analog signals where a low dielectric is important. Dual Filament technology is 3+ times better than Single Filament when used as analog interconnect.

I just did a blind test comparing FLAC to WAV, the difference now is very huge!! I got 100% with 2 trials!

What do you mean? Transients at 3000 Hz? The midrange used to be muddy but that was because RFI/EMI made it muddy. Using better speakers compensates for this flaw. If all tweaks are in place and all external influences are taken care of, I wonder if faster speakers will be audible to the human ear. You don't need anything better than Adam A7 to hear the improvements from tweaks.

My place looks similar enough to that... Why don't the ladies flock to my place!?!?!? I'm so lonely. You must tell me, Patrick, how did you find your fine mistress?

For sure, you have to wrap the rabbits when they come back! They will introduce a lot of very noisy interference if you don't...

Before I wrapped my cats they were very noisy, but now they're so quiet I barely notice them anymore

If you were to entirely wrap something in several layers of aluminum foil with something like 6 inches of distance I'm guessing the shield would block out emf without affecting the cables, perhaps as efficiently as high permeability materials. Possibly a cheap alternative, but I won't be making a 6 inch radius cable shield anytime soon though .

Suffocation does have that effect

Do you have the wonderful power cable Patrick has?

I wonder if there would be a way to isolate the volume pot and ers paper that. I must imagine the rotation of the pot to create a rotational disturbance that would mess things up. If you can shield the volume pot, maybe an adjustment of the knob would yield a more consistent flow of electrons. That might make it a bit more clear and not take as long to warm up.

For all the trouble your going through to do all this I still would like to know why your speaker placement is so poor. I'm sure if your speakers were set up in a correct placement they would gain more in performance than the performance that you say you have gained from shielding.
