"If you make a good and long review, you can keep the product."
So you are willing to "pay" for good reviews. It might not be unlawful, but it is certainly unethical.
If I thought I could turn around and sell it for more than my $45 shipping-fee investment, I'd give it a go. But I have a sneaking suspicion I'd be stuck with a crystal-filled polymer thingie and a wallet that is $45 lighter. That is if I could muster up enough kind words to meet the "good and long" criteria.
What if I have nothing positive to say? Will you send me $45 so I can ship it back? What if we do not agree on what constitutes a "good and long" review? Then what?
Ok I changed it so that reviewers pay 50% of retail price if they want to keep the product. If they like it, they lose money and have to pay for it. If they don't like it, they can send it back and save money.
A good review is one where you compare it against other products, and where you are honest about the positives and the negatives.
If you cannot hear a difference, let your friends try it.
Nocebo is always stronger than placebo, you have already decided you want to make money and are planning to sell it. I will lose a lot of money if I send my products to skeptics.
Someone made a PS Audio Noise Harvester thread at James Randi's skeptic forum claiming there wasn't a difference, in the thread he once wrote that he wasn't planning on hearing a difference, he just bought it to show everyone and make a video that the device doesn't work. He had already decided from the beginning what to write. This is nocebo.
Noise Harvester gives a huge difference in my system, but to the worse, I complained of too big bass among other things. This is the kind of reviews I'm looking for. One tweak is not for everyone, and even from negative reviews, the customer can find valuable information.
It is a virtue when it comes to items such as these:
"$15,000 Exists in only one copy!
This cable was built by another company which is now out of business. This power cable is the most expensive in existence retailing at approx. $50,000.
It was so expensive to build that Virtual Dynamics had to close their business after completing their first retail cable. In our system the Judge gave higher performance than four Genesis daisy chained together.
The Judge is a vibration controlled beast and has large magnets for cleaning the AC signal. It also comes with a dedicated AC plug for the shield."
Cynicism and skepticism prevail, but curiousity is killing the cat: how did YOU get your hands on a $50,000 PC? Did you fall for the same marketing hype by which you hock your wares, and then make a bad decision? It might explain the pricing of the rest of your wares!
I gotta hand it to ya, your marketing is one of a kind...
I wanted a cheaper solution than what I already had, that's why I bought the $50,000 power cable. I got surprised that the sound became better for a fraction of the cost. I could downgrade from an expensive dCS stack with DSD upsampling to cheap low wattage gear with 44.1 kHz. Without the Judge, the 44.1 kHz sounds edgy and empty. Then I started building my own tweaks and get better sound for an even lower cost. The prices of Coconut-Audio products are very low if you want the best sound possible.
...on tweaks does not guarantee "the best possible sound". It only guarantees that you don't know how to prioritize.
