The Madness Continues...Just Ordered One of These - Page 4

Yeah, the public just *has* to know.

BTW: What are the sonic effects of your RCA caps?

Is the midrange smoother, the bass tighter, the highs crisper and the soundstage wider?



Bye

I went to Home Depot the other day and bought that Leviton 5362-IGS outlet for $9.95.

First of all: This thing has an insane grip on the plugs! At first I thought I was putting the plugs in the wrong way, but it was just the tension that the outlet puts on them.

Sound: It actually made a fairly significant improvement; Much more of an improvement that my Vibrapods made. But then again, my old outlet was ~30 years old.

If you have an aging outlet, this will probably make an improvement.

To Jude,

All this crap you are buying is next to useless. All the "improvements" you are hearing is all in your head

In my head....by way of my ears.

Personally, I love Jude's nearly continuous path of upgrades, enhancements and tweaks. He seems to enjoy paving the way, and the rest of us benefit from him being an Audio Guinea Pig. I can think of a number of items on my gotta-have list that I wouldn't have known about without his info.

My bank account may curse him once I get my 333ES, new power cables, and power block, but I tend to think I'll be pleased.

I totally agree!!!!! I would also like to add what a great guy Jude is. I have asked him a few questions over the past weeks and he responded at length and very quickly to answer my questions. I really do enjoy reading about the new tweaks and his thoughts on them!

Very appropriate. I always loved that movie and that quote.

Ladies underwear, eh? Haven't tried that one yet.

Latest tweak: My wife's grandmother had my wife's baby shoes bronzed back when my wife was just a little girl (apparently, this wasn't uncommon then -- not sure how common it is now). Anyway, they're both bronzed and then each placed on a heavy bronze pedestal/bookend. They're quite heavy and have a soft felt covering on the bottom. So I decided to place them on the barren expanse of black steel that is the top of my SCD-C333ES because (A) I think it's cute to see my wife's shoes from when she was a baby (and that big, empty black metal top was looking sorta plain), and (B) they very effectively dampen the top of the case, totally eliminating the little resonance that I could hear when I tapped my fingers on the top (and even the sides) of the 333.

Haven't done any A/B with/without the shoes on top of the 333.

You would be surprised to know what lengths audio manufacturers go to in order to reduce / eliminate internal component resonance. I've seen a number of fixes, but none including placing bronzed baby shoes on top of the piece.

Jude, we may need to file a patent application on this one.

It can be called "The Spousal-izer" - -
For $199.95 you can increase spousal acceptance of your audio gear, while minimizing resonance and vibration. It can be part of a whole line up . . . or not.
