You could well be right Sheldon. However, as long as the established objective measurements fail to give the complete picture of the subjective sound, we must keep open minds.

Norman Koren (and others) Norman Koren's pages make a strong case for controlling the breakthrough of RF radiations into the hi-fi chain. Who's to say that there aren't 'quantum' effects as well - whatever they are!

Have you actually listened to these Bybee devices? Has anyone?

Personally, I believe (as I would guess you do) that the development of loudspeaker driver and cabinet technology is a far more fruitful field for the improvement of sound but still ...

Most of the regulars here would realise that I am having a good natured dig at people who champion unconventional methods of allegedly improving the sound from your hifi. But the thing that was too much to ignore was the one about putting a photo of yourself and your hifi in the freezer to improve the sound you hear from it. I might sometimes ridicule the methods but never the people who use them. I like to ask them hard questions though.

I just wish some people would quit being abrasively dogmatic about some components and techniques and simply state that they enjoy their music and equipment better after they did this or that, rather than assert that their golden ears can hear something that lesser mortals can't. Do you really have to justify enjoyment?

Spot on Circlotron.

By the way, should I use colour photos or will black & white do?

and for 'hybrid' systems, consider using digitally colorized B&W photos. signal source should be taken into account when deciding on photo print resolution.

Tried sepia toned B+W but noticed a further improvement when my 2 year old scribbled on the back of the photo with a green felt tip. My wife and cats agreed.

I asked about these in the past, and nobody actually had heard any, but there sure was a whole lot of crap peddled about how they could not possibly work.
From my experiece and experiments I fully believe that they do work as described, however I also reckon that their sonic effect is not a completely good one, based on my knowledge of their ingredients.

I am currently finalising something vaguely similar that has met with universal acclaim so far in listening trials in various live, recording and playback applications.
This does not rely on belief systems or voodoo, and is clearly heard and appreciated by all who have heard it.

That said, I also consider the P Belt stuff about putting photographs in the freezer as the biggest load of moonshine that I have ever heard of - is this guy tripping permanently, or is he just having a good laugh ?.

Eric.

The obvious answer is Digicam photos for CD, and Kodak Box Brownie prints for vinyl.
Don't you guys know anything !.
