Just really looked at Amir's test results. We need a "fraudulent panther" checkbox for stuff like this.
Uh huhMy post is for people who judge with their ears and that come across this forum as a result of a search for reviews.
That's a new one. A clever variation on "break-in period".I'm new to ASR, and actually came to look when I was accused of being an ASR troll in one of the many glowing review threads on the Ouron plug-in filter NormB mentioned on the previous page. It is a product absolutely ripe for debunking. The distributor says he has been told how it works but has been asked not to discuss it. Proponents cancel any blinded 'can you tell when it is plugged in?' test by declaring it takes 15 minutes to start working, so any memory of previous sound quality is forgotten.
Best of all the distributor is Mark Schifter, who may have turned over a new leaf and become a reformed character. But Googling his name will reveal a concerning history.
We'll have to remember that if Amir tests one. Or the trolls will be in here telling us he didn't test it right
Entreq were the first I saw to come up with that one I think, in relation to their 'grounding' boxes. They say the sonic benefit appears gradually and then fades away gradually after you disconnect the box.
That's interesting, given that his originally sentenced 20 years' probation isn't up until 2030.....The mods at Audiogon have assiduously removed any references to the criminal history alluded to above.
Lol!!!!The mods at Audiogon have assiduously removed any references to the criminal history alluded to above.
That info that is posted periodically is one of my favorites. Keeps from having to retype it in each reply.(standard language below)
How do you propose to run your blind test?

My question about this is, is it worth that much money for such a microscopic, if any, improvement in S.Q.?
There isn't any improvement in sound quality. It has nothing in it that does anything. Not microscopic - just nothing.My question about this is, is it worth that much money for such a microscopic, if any, improvement in S.Q.?
It's never microscopic, always a "massive improvement... wife even notices from the kitchen while making me a sammich."My question about this is, is it worth that much money for such a microscopic, if any, improvement in S.Q.?

Okay. Whatever you say.My post is for people who judge with their ears and that come across this forum as a result of a search for reviews.
Over on Audiogon, there’s this “new” gadget, goes by the name of “Puron” which seems awfully similar to the Furutech gadget here, and a host of others reviewed elsewhere, but not as thoroughly as here, by Amir.
From several reviews on Youtube (blind comparisons) and some EMF/magnetic detection gear, I’m lead to believe there MIGHT be some value here in reducing magnetic induction resulting in auditorily detectable improvements, as people claim,
Maybe. I’ve been a ham radio operator (extra) for a while, I’ve used magnetic loop antennae to good effect so I know a little about electro-magnetic energy.
May be of interest.........
And on being asked how he knows this, replies (I suspect with tongue in cheek):The devices work by capturing EMI from the AC line and converting it to heat. Most of them use metal plates or coils coated in various types of carbon nanoparticles in a polymer matrix. The polymer chains entangle (intercalate) with the nanoparticles and in some cases react with functional groups on the surface of the nanoparticles. The particles work like a supercapacitor. Some formulas use additives to increase the conductivity of the polymer, which is normally dielectric. The conductive polymer transfers the current from the carbon nanoparticles via the functional groups into the matrix where it disperses as heat.
Which may be an admission he used ChatGPT to make up the paragraph above.I researched via google and ChatGPT...
