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.
    Oh - no problem Rudolph. I was not the least perturbed by the comment - just glad that I finally realised that this method was useful and a new way of Mooking. I do agree with you point about Mooking not being a panacea for our audiophile woes. That said, I can't ever imagine owning a non-Mook'd system unless the synergistic research UEF stuff does similar tricks or better.

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.
    And how does this occur , sympathetically drawing away vibrations ? Or some other more scientific explanation is abound ....

    OMGosh, are we now talking about putting Diamond Resonators ON TP, as well as under gear?
    Isn't 1700-2300/component w.3 Ultra or Giants DRs underneath, sufficient expenditure LOL?

    I read thru this thread and I am intrigued by what I'm reading. I have the whole decoupling thing handled with Herzan and Wave Kinetics A10 U8's and 2NS's. I'm curious about gear resonance and acoustics tuning.

    if one were to jump into the Shun Mook pool; what would be the proper degree of 'jumping' to discover whether they were effective?

    3 sets of Mpingo Discs?

    3 of the wood holders for the discs?

    2 sets of 3 Ultra Diamond Resonators?

    I'm thinking on top of my darTZeel 458 mono blocks. on top of my Entreq Poseidon and Silver Tellus. on top of my Golden Gate. on top of my (86" tall) speaker towers? possibly on my baseboard rounded soffit surface at the front of my room or on the windowsills?

    maybe on the arm board of my tt. I already have a wonderful Durand tt weight that I love.

    coach me up a bit. my system does seem to relate the smallest changes clearly.

    Hi Mike, the Mook designer lives on the West coast. Call him over with a van of his toys. There are many more in his kitty than what we use

    I really don't know Jazzhead - I can only report what I hear. Mad I know.

    Well at least he got the continental land mass right, perhaps a large box of home demo goodies then!
