Game Changing Tweak

I bought a pair of electrical devices called Electraclear from a company called AddPowr. They're simply plugged into an electrical outlet that's shared by your system. I paid under $300 for them and they've boosted my system's fidelity dramatically. In the 1800's,  a physicist and mathematician, Joseph Fourier, delved into the science of harmonics, and now the founder of AddPowr used these equations to increase the signal to noise ratio. (more signal=less noise) His devices act as harmonic resonators. He worked for a high-end audio cable company before focusing on this new range of products.
   I thought that when I first received the Electraclears, the difference would be subtle. To my surprise and delight, it was a stunning change. I was hearing music from the inside out. Cleaner, more dynamic, and a far greater and noticeable improvement than my power conditioner produces.
   I love finding inexpensive audio devices that work. The company makes other products, but I'd recommend a pair of Electraclears to start. 
The audiophile I referred to would use top of the line Ortofon and Miyajima cartridges, some retailing for $12,000, the top of the line VPI turntables, and high end speakers in the $40,000 range. Now price doesn't necessarily confer quality, but he's been in the audio business for forty years. Too bad you missed his rooms, it was an education. I also know what live music is, having gone to concerts at Carnegie Hall, Weill Recital Hall, and Zankel Hall for decades. With your technical background, you ought to already know what ADDPowr is doing or simply ask them for the information you need instead of crowing "FAKE" like a jealous has-been.
I put a cat turd on each speaker wire and it improved the imaging. I'll be doggone if I'll take them off until I come up with a better idea!
Maybe I'll wrap them in copper tape!

Who are these people who think this means THEY have to do that? Don't!
I'm just glad I don't have to listen to their system all the time.

We all know that in space, no one can hear you scream. Silence is nature's default condition. No matter how good your gear is--and I'd guess the folks on this site measure pretty high--that utterly silent background determines the definition of what's played over it.
There is significant research showing that there is more "silence" or "rest time" called for in musical compositions than there are notes.
It's so easy to find out what works. TV? . . . Black Level?
Watch for my coming AG sale: Special! Cat Turds $35/pair!
That made me laugh. 

Surely some cat turds sound better than others......
