    You need to read the review.

    The music possessed a more authentic quality in terms of touch, tone and timbre and as a result sounded less electrical and thus less fatiguing. Image density also seemed to gain some weight, giving instruments more decay and "hang time" — the very ingredients that can fool one into believing real instruments are in the room. Harmonic integrity and truth of timbre were phrases that kept coming to mind

    This is what these things always do. But there's no cheap way to get this same effect, of course. Can't get them for a tenner from Maplin. Always from these specialist blokes with weird horn and valve systems who have been working on it in a shed for 'years'. Never any explanation for how it works, even though this arcane knowledge might undermine the Standard Model and provide a major breakthrough in our understanding of Physics. None of that 'Nobel Prize' crap for these chaps; much better to keep the secret to yourself so that you can flog a dozen a year to super-wealthy hi-fi enthusiasts who have run out of things to spend money on.

    Sorry, Neil, we have to disagree on this one.

However I have heard something that might share a similar design ethic and it did make an improvement.
    Perhaps we should be exterminated!

    could be, or act like a reverse parabolic mirror, of which there are working examples.
