From ebony pucks to magic foil, mystical and controversial tweaks.


you're using a head demagnetizer, the radio shack model should be strong enough. I've used a cheap bulk tape eraser for many years now.

You're right about the effects of small reflective devices. The crystals go beyond simple reflection though as I have successfully used them contained within equipment chassis where they are out of range of the the playing speakers. They also work exceeding well when adhered to the back of a speaker magnet inside the speaker cabinet.

In your example, the larger crystal may be definitely affecting the reflective properties, but it would be a simple thing to drape a small hand towel over it to reduce the reflective properties, wouldn't it?

In the case of many Tweaks, a lot is dependent on the resolution of your system. I am not saying that you need to spend a lot of money on your components, but a system of carefully matching components and wires can certainly create a relatively inexpensive system which can sound very good. I do notice a number of computers have deliberate fudge factors built in, particularly older CD players with an RC network to roll off the top end ( actually even modern very expensive units often incorporate this) Proper shielding with something like ERS and the removal of that RC network at the output can really dramatically transform many players.

The Schumann generators is quite interesting. It is supposed to be tuned to 7.8 Hz or thereabouts. This corresponds pretty much directly with the Theta brain wave activity, and as a matter a-f fact a little research shows that many great singers in the past: Caruso, Galli Curci, etc employed vibratos in about the 7.1 to 7.4 Hz range ( from their existent recordings). Even more interesting is the Physical property of entrainment, discovered by non other than Christian Huygens way back in the mid 1600's. Huygens realized very early on that a group of pendulums set swinging at different times will eventually coordinate their swing times.

Quite interesting, as there is still no explanation in physic which accounts for this phenomena. It means that perhaps the Schumann generators are creating an entrainment procedure for everything in the room including the listener ( it is a well documented fact that a group of women working closely together will eventually tend to have their menstrual cycles at about the same times, so entrainment may not necessarily be limited to non animate objects).

Incidentally research early on shows that a weak low level EMF field applied to plates a couple inches away from the ears has had noticeable effects on the subjects ability to judge time, particularly when the frequency is about the Scumann range.
