    Got the high temp. full Monty Ti HAL-O III-9 stabilizer rings (4) the 1st time around for the LF.
    Sanity prevailed the 2nd time around and I just bought the SS/PTFE/Viton Ultrasonic RX-30 rings (4) for my EAR HP4.

    Gotta be careful for those microphonics... :wink:

    Thanks! Those are pretty cool looking.

    Tube amp jewelry.

    I bought the regular Herbie's SS tube dampers. They do sound great. Thank you.

    Despite some audiophilic products being perceived as snake oil hype, microphonics have a real potential impact on tube performance. I think that resonance dampening rings are well worth the price as an effective prophylactic, "jewelry" notwithstanding.

    I did notice a difference immediately.

    Received mine a few weeks ago. I didn't really want to believe I was hearing an improvement because of the dampening rings, but I think I am.

    God help my wallet if I ever walk into a dealer selling Shunyata and Nordost stuff...I'm liable to talk myself into a home-equity loan for pretty cables and isolating cones or some such sh!t.

    Excellent. A few years back I bought the cheap-o Venom Shunyata power cords (under or around $100) and again noticed an improvement.
