Technical and scientific discussion of amps, cables and other topics.

Strange, isn't it?

Strange that it does seem to have an effect on the sound of the CD, which, while it makes no sense, is simply curious.

The effect on my body is more disconcerting. I can't answer for you and your Radio Shack degausser that geoffkait supposes you're feeling because of the vibration. But my old Olsen Electronics TA-147 bulk tape eraser is a table top unit measuring 4.5" x 4" x 2.25" and is listed at 10 amps. This thing buzzes and vibrates, but I'm not even touching it when passing the CD over it, and I still get that odd feeling in my hand.

It's easy to use, and I'd sweep every CD I listen to over it, but it's not worth hand cancer (is there such a thing?) for the subtle improvement in sound.
