Default Social experiment

I suspect the guy behind this enterprise did it as a social experiment, not so much to try to make money as to see how nutty he could make his claims and still have people fall for them.

I'd be surprised if he actually has had any customers.

But then again, people were actually buying Tice clocks.

I keep thinking this as well. Heck, I think this most of the time when I see high-end audio tweak stuff.

I always imagine that their conversation goes something like this:

Audio Scammer #1: "Okay... I've got this idea.. Now.. hehe.. No no, hear me out."

Audio Scammer #2: "Is this going to be better than your last round of trying to sell home depot varnish in perfume vials to coat their electronics and calling it 'DX44 Lacquer?'"

AS #1: "Oh yeah.. Let me finish. This one's much better. Hang on, I gotta stop laughing. Okay... Check this one out. I thought this one up while my wife was gardening. I'm going to go in my back yard and get a bunch of rocks, okay? Then I'm going to put them in my kid's rock polisher. My wife has these jars for canning stuff from our garden, so once they're all polished, I'll fill a jar half way with them....."

AS #3: "Sounds like arts and crafts stuff to me, where's the meat?"

AS #1: "No no.. You gotta let me finish. So we sell these jars as 'Vibration Control Devices' to schmucks who think it'll improve the sound of the speakers and electronics when placed on top"

AS #2: "Hmmm.. Not bad, but we need to add some spin to it."

AS #1, 2 & 3: (thinking)

AS #3: "I've got it! Lets say that it works at a quantum level with microwave frequencies, and absorbs radiation in the 1Ghz spectrum."

AS #1: "Mmmph! Hahaha.. You think they'll fall for it?"

AS #2: "Yeah man.. I'm just going to say that it works on a quantum confusion principle. I'll say I developed it in the military while I was working on that battleship."

AS #1: "You mean back in '83 when you were a mess cook? No way they'll buy it."

AS #2: "Dude, I sold a $5 wooden knob from the craft store with your 'DX44 Lacquer' on it for $500 to some idiot the other day"

AS #1: "You're kidding.. You're actually able to sell those things? Damn, I guess I owe you $20 on that bet."

AS #3: "So what're you going to call this thing?"

AS #1: "I'm going to call it the Schmook Quantum Sterling Mpurifier"

AS #2: "OOOOH! Good name! How you come up with it?"

AS #1: "Playing the word jumble in the newspaper with my kid."

AS #2: "So how much do you want to charge for these?"

AS #1: "Well, obviously these quantum rocks are priceless, dont y'think? The tumbler cost me $35 for my kid. And the jars are 2 bucks each. Hmm.. Lets say $200 each, or $350 for a 'matched pair.'"

AS #3: "Sounds good. Make 10 and send them to me. I'll put 'em up the announcement on my site. I'll send 3 out to the usual rags, and the rest will be sold by the end of the month."

AS #1: "God I love this job."

Who's the usual rags?



These turbonanotomic quantum device work at macroscopic levels extending high frequency definition and articulation about at least an octave. use daily please

I find that these work best when treated liberally with a solution containing two parts hydrogen and two parts oxygen. Gives you more sparkle on the highend, and I find the process has more of a "tingle" when done this way.

However, I have heard that misusing these can cause severe detrioration in the audio spectrum, almost to a painful degree. Has anyone tested this?

I feel pretty sure that the only person who will hear the benefit of these various devices will be the one that paid for it...

How far can these people go? If it keeps up, soon they will be selling 5 cent "HypoAcoustaMaxIntelliHancer" stickers for 10 grand.

I got into the wrong business. If I could convince dough-heads to pay money for that, I'd be driving a Ferrari.

And if you put it on your car it not only makes the audio sound so much better, but your car gains at least 10HP all the while cutting fuel consumption by as much as 25%.

Don't forget that MUST align the arrow your sticker with magnetic north, if you don't, your enhancer will be out of phase with your system, thus ruining the Pace, Rhythm and Timing.
