New Tweak --- Its Fantastic


Over the good part of this past year I’ve been beta testing a new tweak, the name of which is "Total Contact." Its a hi-bred graphene contact enhancer that is different from all other contact enhancers that have come and gone for one reason or another. I’m not new to these contact enhancers, having had quite a bit of experience with a product developed by the late Brian Kyle and his "Quick Silver" contact enhancer. The "Total Contact" is different ... a LOT different.

"Total Contact" is graphene based and is not a vibration control. It eliminates micro-arching between two contacts. Micro-arching, much like Micro-vibration smears the sound in our stereo systems. Its the type of distortion that we don’t know is there .... until we eliminate it. There is no break-in as we know it. The sound is improved right off the bat, but what you hear is only a smidgen of what’s to come.

I tested three generations of "TC," each of which was an improvement over the previous incarnation. The final mix was cryogenitically treated and made for a more effective, much smoother application. It comes in a large hypodermic needle type plunger containing 1.5 ml of product and includes a instructional DVD and an application brush.

The application should be applied with a very thin coat to all of your electrical connections .... from your cartridge pins to your power cords. I did my entire system, including the ends of my fuses.

Upon initial application, you will notice an improvement in clarity, correctness of tonal balance and a more overall organic sound. But ... that is just scratching the surface of what this magic paste does. As it cures, the improvements become more apparent. Much more!

There are two real break-through events that happen almost to the day with "Total Contact," one at four weeks and another at eight weeks . At four weeks, you’ll get a real jump in clarity and overall improvement. That’s only a taste though of what’s to come at eight weeks. At eight weeks your system’s focus will make a jump in SQ that is so real - its surreal.

After 40 years in the hobby, and a total tweak nut, I have never heard anything that does what this graphene paste does. The see-through clarity at eight weeks becomes simply amazing. The "paste" eventually cures into a kind of polymer plastic and it seems that the sound improves with each listening session. So, its important that you leave your contacts alone for the duration. If you’re the type of person that continually switches wires in and out, you’ll have to re paste until enough time has elapsed to get "the cure."

The only problem I had was with the first batch and that had to do with shorting out a tube pin in the line stage. Use the "TC" very sparingly on tube pins, if at all. I only had problems with the line stage tube pins. The Amp, CD Player and Phono Stage has had no tube pin problems at all.

Tim Mrock, one of our fellow A’goners, is the developer of the product. Its taken Tim 15 years and several patents to get it right. Tim has "pasted" every electrical contact he can find in his audio system, all of the switches in his circuit breaker box, every contact in his car ... and has used it in commercial applications such as hospital circuit breakers, surgical lights ... and other places where efficiency and long life of electrical components are deemed important.

This product is highly recommended to anyone who truly wants to get the most out of his/her audio systems. There’s enough product in each tube to do at least two audio systems as it just takes a very thin coat on each application to be effective. The last tube was enough to do my system twice and then a friend’s system this past weekend.


PS: There were a couple of other A’goner beta testers of this product as well. Hopefully, they will chime in here with their experiences for comparison. I "pasted" both of Steve Fleschler’s systems a few days ago, perhaps he will comment on his results too. We forgot to paste Steve’s power cords though, so there’s a lot more to be had from Steve’s two fantastic systems.

littlecx ...

If you don't disturb the connections there is no reason to reapply. And actually, it does dry as part of the curing process. That's a good thing. 

then does the bottle have expiration date? do I need to put it into the fridge after opened?
@littlecx refrigeration will prolong shelf life, I do have a syringe that is now on its way to the 5 year mark, and the product is still fluid.

@geoffkait No mystery to me. First off he did not received the first version, only Frank did, which was crude, but was good real good. He received the second version, and there was nothing wrong with that, actually good enough, that  about half my system still has it. The sonic signature is the same!

My point is the Beta Tester dropped out for other reasons, had NOTHING to do with my product PERIOD. No hard feelings on my part,
forgiven and forgotten. I have all the emails which paint a much different picture that was portrayed on this thread.

So, I thank you for sending him a little to try, and I am happy that he is impressed, we will see if he is impressed enough to purchase his own kit. If so he will be treated with the same respect and enthusiasm that
I extend to all my customers, which I would like to thank again!

Stay tuned something big is coming in the next month!    

I had a local audiophile friend who is highly discerning when it comes to audio over on Sunday who hadn’t heard my system since applying TC. My friend has had many high end systems over the years and fine audio is his only hobby. He listened to my system and immediately shook his head and said, "You’ve made a lot changes since I was last here. What did you do to your system? You’ve always had a lower noise floor given your highly tweaked system consisting of top of the line Synergistic Research cables and tweaks but your system noise floor is much lower than I have ever heard. I’m hearing details in my favorite recordings that were obscured before and your system is better balanced and less forward sounding". With TC, my system has never sounded better. The soundstage is left to right and front to back is huge with greater image density. I’m at the 8th week mark on my cables and the 2nd week mark on my treated Cutler Hammer panel. I’m also happy to report that I’ve been able to remove some outside the signal path tweaks since treating my system with TC.  Looking forward to the new products coming on board.
I'm impressed with what TC has done for me. From all the things I've pasted I found tube pins and anything connected to the modem and router to have the biggest impact. I'm slowly changing out connectors on my power cables and when I do I'm applying TC to the wires and contacts to great effect.

I started about a month ago with the speaker and interconnect cables and each week after have applied to something different and would like to open up my dac and amp to fiddle but I'm getting low on supply so i may order more unless Tim's announcement next month steers me in another direction.

Look forward to what you gotta say next month Tim!!
