I have many resonators from Frank. Copper, silver, gold and platinum. I have not yet put them up in my new place. I want to wait until all of my rooms are TOTALLY settled in without ANY enhancements and then insert items ie, the ASI resonators to see their effect. I'm still months away. I have been using them for 10+ years as well.

I don't talk about the resonators to people unless they already understand. As you say, they are very powerful.
Glad to hear that such a Professional is on the same page here/hear, however no mention on Grounding boxes , Fascinatingly these go hand in hand with the resonators ! and is a must once installed with care.

When I first learned about resonators and after working with them for six months, my conclusion was "air is very sensitive stuff":)
Yes and have you tried listening with the listening room door or window very slightly open ?

I am a professional, but that has only been 20 years. I've been an audiophile for 50 years:)

Yes, grounding can be illuminating as well.

Sure. Frank has visited both me and several of my resonator customers. I have experienced many things with Frank.

Rhapsody.Audio Alsyvox Tintoretto X (with external crossovers) installed today in Tribeca, Manhattan. Btw, it's all rental furniture as the customer just moved in last week. Their full house of furniture will arrive in another week. No glass coffee table long term:)

Just wondering are you using balanced interconnects between the Mac pre and power?
The pic is at a customer installation which I did last week. I honestly can't remember what IC's were being used as he already had the Mac gear. I just inserted the Alsvyvox Tintoretto X.

Love the light grey S5II
It's funny I had a pair in the same color in my old place, which was a very dark room and I didn't like the color at all. In my new very light room, I love the color.
