    Possibly a commercially produced class D could be better

    My Nat dealer was over y'day. When we got past the aborted Magnetostat demo, we got around to talking Mooks. Fascinatingly, he pretty much confirmed Audiophile Bill's take on the Tuning Discs and the potentially phenomenal effect they have on the acoustic. I truly cannot get my head around this, but my curiosity will have to be satisfied at some stage.

    The NAT AA room is full off mooks, including the wooden blocks and mpingo discs.

    Right - a tip of the hat to our very own Harlequin of this parish. I noticed his upside down use of resonators on the classis and noted that Greg Baron is also a fan of this approach. I removed my ultras from the GG and placed one on each Krell and one on the GG upside down. They are extremely effective used in this manner and bring the same benefits as the discs on the chassis only that the effecte is increased a lot. I got a fair amount more body and weight to instruments and orchestra today with this method.

    Which way is better? Under GG or above GG?

    Hi,

    What I can say at this early juncture is that removing the 3 ultras from under the GG and placing 1 on each Krell monoblock and one on the GG along with the other Mooks (3 discs and tube resonators) brings a larger macro benefit than 3 under GG. The Krells get a real lift. I should probably try 3 resonators on top of the GG to see whether they are better that way up or normal. Mad stuff.

    As mentioned in my answer to Ron a while ago I use in both my systems three SH feet upside down on my Kondo preamps for quite a while and I would not do this if it were not very effective. A friend of mine has been doing this for ages putting them on his CAT jl 1 power amps, albeit not three per amp of course.

    It was not my intention at all to call you slow or something, Bill. Just wanted to add (once more) that placing SM feet on top of various audio components can be very effective indeed. That said, imo we should not look upon the SM devices as a 'panacee' for all possible audio issues. They are tweaks and as with all tweaks it is a matter of trial and error to find out whether they are effective or not in certain circumstances.
