"Fat Shame" JBen?????..WHAT???...-You MUST be kidding!! I would NEVER dis JBen. I am proud to call him my friend!!
And if you weren't kidding; in this case "biggest" means "TOP SHELF" gentleman!!!
Yeah it was a bad joke :) one you saw and in my sad sense of humor, funny because you would never act like that.
These days my sense humor has been replaced with sense of tumor. Dud ump ump.
sad. Get to doing this tweak man. I have found it best to do a junction or 2 each day and just go slow, but ymmv.
Happy new year! While 2023 sucked for me, it was actually a great year for audio in that my system is sounding better than ever.

Thanks for your post!!
I would start this tweak today, but as I said before, I have a power cord on burn-in and changing the input tubes on the Valhalla...-.As soon as that is finished and I see if I like what I did, I will get to the salt tweak...-
Thanks for the tip on the application!!!
Well, hope '24 will be good to Dawnrazor as well as audio!!!
Well, OG42, tks but whatever the gentleman is, he's got a very rusty brain cell, for a brain. This morning I dreamt that my post to Dawnrazor last night was wrong. Darn, a hobby has no right to intrude so much in my life!
As it turns out, the dream was right, wow! I mentioned Tazsmonn's xover as what produced the imaging effect that had led me to Al Sekelas's choke. Wrong. In fact, it was actually YET ANOTHER suggestion by Dawnrazor for me to try in those days - the capless xover - which led me to Al's tweak.
Now, Dawnrazor never got any flack from neither of us on the magwire, which one way or another still is vital to my system's personality today. My wife does remember my initial skepticism as she helped me tame the thin 10ft-long single threads to each MMG while I kept muttering that this probably was very crazy!
Oh, and I think there is some kind of confusion. He might have meaning my staying away for so long. But then again, he did the same. :)
Weird dreams man. But I think you are wrong about your dream. IIRC Taz had several crossovers and the capless one was the one I tried. So I would say the original post was right.
So glad the magwire is staying and you had the balls to try it.
Ironically this is the one time I have cables that I didn't make. I figured it was just easier to buy them and given my state at the time I was worried about leaving on the soldering iron or something....so I bought some anticables for ICs and running headphones didn't need speaker wire (the electrostat earbuds have a cable that is non detachable).
Its ironic because I have all the raw material to make some ICs but am choosing not to. Maybe one day I will make some cables.
But really things are sounding great with this tweak. The next challenge will be addressing the outlets behind furniture and beds and oh my. Probably just take on the challenge of letting those outlets go...

Oh, strangely enough, the dream was right. You had experimented and used the capless xover before I joined the Asylum. After I joined, you told me about it -- but not that Taz was ALSO involved with this particular tweak. In any event, I tested it, like it very much, and noted its effect on imaging. Sadly, going capless was not practical in my case. But its imaging effect got me hooked...then Al Sekela's tweak saved the day for me.
Anyway, the testing of "a Taz xover" I mentioned, was done later, based on the currently still available diagrams in the MUG. Until today (I checked the archives) I did not realize that Taz was also involved in the capless xover. More Kudos to him! Ok, some Kudos to you, as well. :)
I know what you mean. Kind of feels like one has to apply at least SOME tweak by ourselves. Otherwise the universe is out of alignment, or something. In fact, having a desired tweak but done by someone else ain't fully right, either. Case in point, I bought my 1.6QR used and they had Razoring already on them. Beats me, but I still fight an occasional impulse to disrobe these Maggies, take the strips off and redo that cumbersome invention of yours again!
Oh yeah, you may want to let those other outlets alone for now. Enjoy what you now gained, and keep your back safe...until the itch returns :)
