Now to talk of the deep mystery, one I could perhaps share with Ms. Johanson. Behold:

More info on these at the above link.

Back to the deep mystery. It is one fiendishly deep mystery how such a configuration could do what is claimed. Equally how someone could work on this for 10 years of R&D.

The mystery, the truly incredible pondering which might enlighten one is this: How could such a device constructed this way possibly be priced rationally at $1495 each. EACH. $3k per pair which you'll need a pair for stereo. Of course I think someone seriously offering the product has a big pair of another type.

Moderately expensive Van den Hul-cables. Back from when I had no technical understanding of audio, and believed what I read in magazines and heard in shops. I thought at the time that the bass in my room was too boomy. Went to a hifi shop and explained the problem. Got the advice that I should try some cables from Van den Hul, as they had more "control over the bass". I gave it some thought, and slowly became convinced. "Hm. Ok. Seems legit".

Still have them though, as they have a nice white finish which blends well with the furniture in my living room.
Have a pair of VdH silver cables somewhere too... possibly connected, perhaps in a box... Think they were yellow, though. Most certainly I bought them 2nd hand.

"you will hear significant improvements in every performance area: speed, precision, dynamic range, depth and width of the sound stage, transient impact, tonal balance, harmonic distortion, and more. "

:rolleyes:
Ah yes, improved speed. Will make a 40 minute album a 37 minute album.
