I just made a pair of these, their effect is noticable even over my already decent isolation setup. Apparently there are more horizont vibes out there than I thought. Similar to the effects of previous vibe control experiments, but more. Imaging improved, more space within the soundstage, details, tonal richness. That being said, their placement is critical. I didn't like their effect on my DAC. The highs became a little harsh. My preamp and transport loved them though.
A little thinking and work advanced the tweakery to a higher level than the diyumas originally approached- http://www.audioasylum.com/audio/tweaks/messages/28503.html
Don't remember if I mentioned it, but don't combine sorbothane or innertubes (or anything compliant) with the diyumas, they could magnify vibrations somewhat, and the diyumas alone are much less likely to fall anyway.
Thanks for all inmates who have posted about diyumas, the horizontal plane was something I overlooked and never should have.
these Diyumas things are that good. The effect is noticeable right from the start and are very easy and inexpensive to do. Use your marble slabs at the same time with the Diyumas and , just for fun, try some books or phone guide(paper) over the equipments.
You can find ball bearings using the search option (many sites were provided by inmates)or look for an auto mechanic that deals with brake systems. They usually have from parts replaced that use ball bearings.
I'm glad you really like them and encourage people for trying them too. A tweak like this is to good to pass over without given it a chance.
Que tal Badman! Nice to hear you like them. Your findings are consistent with other friends and inmates results.
Try to put some weight over your DAC and Transport while using the Diyumas, it should help.
I had been previously using weights on my equipment (layered marble held together with blu tack with metal tape betw layers for shielding) and liked their effect, but removed them before doing listening of diyumas. I will work with them, but first I need good bearings (I'm using marbles now). The marbles have too much friction and weight makes the frictional effect worse.
Anybody reading this post, diyumas are best vibe tweak I've tried, including air bladders cones and DH squares with cones. (and combos of the above) MAKE SOME NOW!!!
