Tony,
this is VERY GOOD - if you sell them and find enough idiots who buy. The "science" behind it is utter rubbish. You live in Russia, so you can probably get black market homemade vodka - better value for your money, believe me.

Demagnetise the whole system [including, I presume the speaker!]................

Snake oil perhaps but read this serious sounding review
http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/nanotech2/pro.html
I reserve judgment until I hear it for myself.

However if you really want to start people pulling their hair out look at this product review
http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/f...esonators.html

it seems a lot of asian audiophiles swear by it.

6Moons reviews have to be taken with a large pinch of salt !!!!!!!

There is a recent thread about the resonators. Apparently, they even work when not in the same room as the audio equipment so they must really annoy your neighbours !!!!!! It's all in the review.

They were demonstrated at a show. NONE of the other exhibitors commented or complained about their audio image being improved or shifted while they were being moved.

I'm pretty new to digital. I was literally stunned by the extreme poor quality of CDs. My initial reaction was that this has to be some kind of joke. But then I looked around and nobody was saying anything. I don't know if it's me or everybody is being compliant. I have had more problem with CDs in three years than I have had with vinyl in three decades. (It should be noted that I avoid new 180g "audiophile" vinyl pressings. They are as useless as CDs.) Then I read this on the page in the link:

Quote:
The demagnetization process of CD-ROM or MD etc. used to be performed during their production processes. Manufacturers had realized that demagnetization enhanced the capability of Software. However, with increasing price competition, most manufacturers stopped the demagnetization leaving us again with the magnetized products and the problems that go with them.
This makes perfect sense to me. CDs are, after all, made by the lowest bidder. It explains why there's no quality control.

Now, I'm not saying I believe in this stuff. I know the vinyl version is snake oil. But the thing is, I don't have any problem with vinyl. It's CDs I'm having problem with. I'm desperate here. Desperate people do desperate things. I want to be able to enjoy music not available on vinyl. I want to not hate CDs. I want CDs not to be a bad joke.

Forget demagnetisation for a moment, I think there is a Nobel prize waiting for the first person who can magnetise aluminum.

A lot of audiophiles are such idiots that they spend huge amounts of money on equipment and little magic doo-dads instead of properly treating their room's acoustics. What sort of fool arranges their stereo with a big window behind and between the speakers? The same kind who thinks little magic doo-dads can fix the problem!

I have the solution to your problems. Send me $500 and I will sacrifice a goat to legba and say the words that are necessary to get the Gods on your side once again. If you do not send the money right away I forsee something very bad happening to your system. Only I can help you. Please, for your own good and the safety of your stereo system, send the money NOW!
