just feeling particularly facetious today Don't mean to sound mean.

I've already taken two naps today, and somehow I just end up more groggy and tired after each one!

I'd actually thought about the whole "demagnetize your ears" thing myself. Also, as I was looking for the link to the "cable burn-in tool" that I saw awhile back, I stumbled on some other discussions on that whole thing and it got me thinking about that, too, and the psychological ramifications of stuff.

Conclusion: I'm tired, also, the brain is weird.

I wonder if the difference can be heard also if you play the demag without hearing it.
PLEASE GUARD YOUR EARS
I alway wear hearing protection when I demag my system.
I always leave the room when it's playing as well.
It'd very important to take care of your ears when doing this.

Also, a soon as you have played the demag track in your system it will have demagnetised anything that it may be effective for.
You would have to wait for a number of weeks for the system to become re-magnetised again.

Remember that any benefit you get from using this will depend on your system.

Cheers,

Alex

Since this is an AC signal wouldn't music itself have the same functional effect

My first question still stands, having read this and other threads, product literature etc, I still would like an explanation of whats being demagnetised and how come it dont demagnetise the speaker motor
However hard I've searched I cant find an answer to that question.
On a lighter note and I would ask you to keep secret, but BHTX mentioned various esoteric treatments. On a recent visit to the seaside my Children found bags of "brilliant pebbles"* on sale in a shop for £1 (about 50c), we immediatly bought 2 bags. I can confirm all claims made by Audio Dynamica, they do improve the listening experience, only 2 days after buying them they got sucked up by the vac, forever ending it electronic whining, and so allowing the music to flow through. Having since leart that these bags of polished stone are actually worth $129 each, I was distrought, they could have paid for the new vacuum cleaner.
Appologies Alex for the OT, there are going to be some effects playing a constant frequency with decreasing amplitude through the system, I'd of thought, its a constant frequency applied vibration instead of a random frequency applied vibration, the latter tends not to set up reasonance vibration. ( could also say the same for the electomagnetic waves around all conductors)
Have Fun

Yeah, I've never really understood this either.
The reveiwer of the product I based this on suggested a couple of possible reasons that it didn't work for his system:
1) nothing in the signal path of his system was being magnetised
2) test tones and music content he played mimicked what the demag track does.

Vacuum cleaners really suck when trying to listen to music

My guess is that the inductive field around the voice coil is too small to affect the permanent magnet in the speaker motor.
I've never understood the reasons why it works, but it does, so I keep using it.

Cheers,

Alex
