I love the idea of a magnet that clamps around the tube to "center" the electron flow...this could be easy to make and as far as I know, doesnt exist at the moment....why not a magnetized tube damper made from, of course, rare earth magnets (standard ceramic types might impart a haze to the image).

I am going to build a pair for my gain stage of my 300B, withn a few days I will scientifically notate my objective subjective findings here for the scientifically minded folk around here.

I can already tell this will work....

Well,

Its at your own risk..I guess it could magnetize the anode plate of a tube and could stuff it...it will move(push/pull) the electron flow...so this is probably why you haven't seen one......(I was joking!)

I'm emotionally confused. I don't know whether I should be angry at the stupidity of gullible man, angry at the loose morals of purveyors of BS who profit from it, or impressed by it all. Either way it's damn funny. Every time one of these scams surfaces I'm surprised again; maybe I'm the stupid one.

How can people with skills to make enough disposable money to afford such trinkets be parted from it so easily?

...and that review is criminal.

How about some kind of bass concentrator built to the same proportions as the pyramid at Cheops?

Well, if you don't get angry at the wine industry, you shouldn't be at the "audiophile" industry. Or should I say "audio-"tech"-phile" industry.

I think the collective idea should include Pyramids. Maybe filled with Quartz or whatever rock rich hippys think does something currently.

On topic:
I still can't fathom why someone would want a multi harmonic bell in the listening room. It's beyond bone-headed.

You could make a pyramid shaped one and make it rest on top of the tubes. You know, to focus the energies.

The positive side of the magnet should point down to increase the "positive" energy of the music.

I'm go'in to hell for that one.
