What was the rest of his quote?
In my wasted youth I read every issue of TAS (up until about year 2000) multiple times.
I don't recall HP saying anything like that. It's possible he wrote it once, but if it were multiple times I think I'd remember.
It's always possible that I'm wrong, though.
as well as selling "silver rainbow foil" to put on your CD's before freezing them to acquire better "morphic resonance" and "Cream Electret", a white cream that you apply like furniture polish to all surfaces of all components, including the undersides of the covers of electronic gear and needed to be only one molecule thick. Good ol' Peter Belt...to some it may sound like some stable scientific genius in a big white edifice somewhere in the twilight zone YMMV
Hey, aren't those the two Belt Products that made the Stereophile List of Recommended Components a few years ago?
It just changes every issue.
My favorite "best" component was that Rappaport amp which had the unfortunate tendency to spontaneously catch on fire! ;-) (Although maybe that was someone else's "best", not Harry's!)
...which had the unfortunate tendency to spontaneously catch on fire!
I think those were Jadis tube amps. :)
I heard two inter-related stories about that.
One, that the US importer Veekhtor Gold-shteen had hot-rodded the power supplies to make the review amps "sound better."
Two, that some sort of trouble was inevitable anyway, in that Jadis had laid out the top panel of the amps with inadequate space between the tubes, and they heated each other into overdrive.
"Those were the days, my friends, we thought they'd never end..."
No best component? Speaker, amp, etc.
As in, one can't say X amp is the best amp in every system, in every room, to every listener.
I heard him say many things over the years but don't recall that reference.
