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.
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.
