I've heard of stuff like that before. Does the orchestra set them out in the hall when they perform, so they will sound better? If you believe, you will believe. :^o #-o :roll:

Jeez!
That website is LOADED with snake oil!
They make those products sound SO important, and I guess if I had a botched lobotomy on my brain, I might even believe that stuff.

ROTFLMAO

be wary of ads that include words like "synergistic" or phrases such as "mathematically derived algorithms"

Except for the date, I almost think, April fools. Especially like the higher sound stage. Very difficult to attain. and the very reasonable shipping. Wonder if they can engineer one for the positive speaker terminal. I also like their name.

Is that lever on the right for pop up ? Pops up the cartridge once done ? Toasted cartridge ? I wonder if they can be sued.

"It can also be used as a cartridge rest"
Oh yes! A $330 cartridge rest. May I use it with my $15 AT 3600?
