Apologies, I neglected to inquire whether anyone is using or has tried these products?
Do you have the PS audio regenerator? How does it compare to the gigawatt?
Loads of goodies on this site, I got some WA quantum chips coming. Can't wait to put them in, I wonder how much better things will be when I do....
I'm not making a specific comment on those as I have not tried them. And I keep an open mind these days so long as what is on offer appears either bordering on reasonable, remotely plausible and has a money-back guarantee and is easy for the end user to test - preferably blind if they are experienced in that sort of thing. Afterall, I use L'Art Du Son conditioning fluid before I burn my expensive Japanese SPMPT CD-Rs and I have a couple of those Akiko sticks. But what I really object to (and what gives almost all tweaks a bad name) are reviewers who go so overboard in print as regards perceived efficacy of the said tweaks that it beggars disbelief. Soundstages collapsing, music burning holes in the ears once the tweak is removed and stripping walls of paint when that just-installed tiny, purple, heart-shaped translucent swami crystal is moved from the fridge in the adjoining kitchen to the dog kennel in the backyard (but the audio system still seems to work OK if it is put in the cat litter tray).
Seriously, no tweak (I do not count adding a whole component such as a power strip or even an Entreq box as a tweak because they are full-blown additional components) is going to do anything more than very subtly change the presentation. And that is fine - I don't think any genuine tweaker really honestly expects much more and most of the fun is actually gained from trying to get that last 0.5% improvement which is what many of them can actually achieve. So why do these reviewers spoil it all and make tweakers the laughing stock of the mass market audiophile by stating their systems are all but made or broken when a magic foil sticker is attached to a surface mount capacitor that controls the laser servo in their CD player. It just gives the sceptics more ammo when going into battle with their placebo arguments. Which is a real pity if whatever tweak we are talking about does actually work.
I tried these years ago an I agree with above observation from FF. It's impact on the sound is VERY subtle! One of the tweaks you easily live without. That's why I removed it and if anybody is interested...Although the difference is obviously very subtle, the result is a very slightly more relaxed and focussed sound.
