From the manufacturers websiteLet me introduce new king of snake oil from Nirvana audio Taiwan.
The owner of Nirvana audio was running yogurt business.Now he make audio optimizer.超凡之聲 以 Nirvana Audio 獨家技術打造的Chronos音響優化器，主要有四大功效：電源淨化、音質提升、空間重塑、時間定序。釋放硬體的終極性能，還原音樂的本質原貌。www.nirvana-audio.com
The audio optimizer is an usb device.
Nirvana audio claim the usb device can improve electricity power,jitter and room mode.
The most amazing thing is they say it can work without plug the usb in your device just put it in listening room.
This amazing snake oil just cost 4000 USD to have one.
So you plug this into a wall wart and then wait until the light comes on.... riiiight...
When connecting the IDMIX CH05 Pro Power Bank to a wall outlet, please notice the NEUTRAL and HOT slots on that wall outlet. In general, the longer slot is for NEUTRAL, and the shorter slot is HOT (110~220V when energized).
Use care not to format the Chronos Optimizer by using any kind of the electronic devices, such as personal computer, Blu-ray disc player,...etc.
The Chronos Optimizer should not be exposed to strong magnetic fields such as those generated by Neodymium magnet, Alnico magnets, Samarium Cobalt magnets.
The Chronos Optimizer should not be exposed to dripping or splashing.
Then a reviewer says this:
So the snake-oil train rolls on.When employing Chronos optimizer, the sound becomes more vivid, substantial, and immersive; besides, the sonic elements blend together seamlessly, creating a cohesive and organic audio experience. Upon Chronos optimizer’s removal, the sound stage abruptly loses its depth, and the tangible presence of musical instruments diminishes significantly. This effectiveness bears semblance to the subtle augmentation of mid-range frequencies through a judicious application of EQ. However, the act of adjusting EQ alone fails to enhance the sound stage and sound imaging that is achievable through the utilization of this Chronos optimizer, wherein the remarkable amelioration is attainable without compromising the integrity of the musical signal. Though challenging to explicate within existing theoretical frameworks, it is undeniable that this Chronos optimizer’s efficacy remains resolute and substantiated.
