This is more proof that the patent office will issue patents for anything.

"Preferably in excess of 100.degree. C"!!! They must have inhaled every wisp of magic smoke as it escaped.

I'm not going to deny that a circuit will settle in to its designed operational state after it has warmed up (I have even measured it), but heating components to excessive and highly unstable temperatures for infinitessimal improvements in subjective sound quality is ridiculous.

I'm sure that the "inventors" will stand around and talk about how good their invention sounds while it is ON FIRE!

Could it be a halucination that if the amp case is touched hot, it MUST sound better?

One interesting thing is Graph 3. The vertical axis is "Sound Quality Enhancement".

How can we measure sound quality? With what device so it can be quantitatively described?
