Was just tryin' to get a particular flavor on those tubes. Chitlins really help take the edge off a tube with aggressive treble, and the grits, well that was just from having too much on the fork and some fell off. Next time I'll wear a bib. The Audiodharma works great with interconnects, speaker cables, power cords, but the real eye opener was giving my headphone cable a few days on it. Had to make an adapter for the Aeon cable, but I'll never listen to an 'uncooked' headphone cable again. Serious improvement.
