Today I was perusing Audiogon and came across the Machina Dynamica ad for the "Teleportation Tweak". The ad was a great read and did make me chuckle. After I finished laughing, I started to wonder who actually ran Machina Dynamica. Does anyone out there have any real info on this company? Wouldn't it be great if the owners of this company were actual engineers/scientists who had a very pragmatic view about audio, and the whole reason for the company was so that they could conduct one big experiment, "How absurd could we make a product and still get audiophiles to purchase it?"
While Machina Dynamica probably does more harm than good for the audio community, I do hope that the absurdity of these products gets people to start questioning their other audio "tweaks" and whether or not they truly make a difference. For this reason, I am very glad that the "Sound Science" forum exists. Hopefully, after reading some of the posts on this forum, people will start looking for objective data as well as subjective data before making their next purchase.
