    It reminds me of a certain individual in Russia who spent years “studying” “directional properties of waves and materials” and who now claims that all the wood in a listening room should be “directionally aligned”, otherwise it would have a “disastrous” effect on sound quality. The same individual also claims that if your listening room has a ceiling lamp, lightbulbs in it should be aligned in a certain way to avoid “dulling” the sound.

    Following exhaustive experimentation over the years, I came to the conclusion that near identical and quite remarkable benefits can be reaped from utilising teabags in similar strategic positions. Has to be Earl Grey though for optimum results.

    It's far better use for Earl Grey than drinking the stuff

    Once we've made sense of our world, we wanna go fuck up everybody else's because his or her truth doesn't match mine. But this is the problem. Truth is individual calculation. Which means because we all have different perspectives, there isn't one singular truth, is there?

    Surprised at all the people commenting without listening. Don't you know that you can't hold an opinion on anything, however ridiculous, without trying it yourself? That's the rules.

    I mean I'm of the opinion that if I jump off the roof of my house I will break my legs (at the very least). But I have no right to hold that opinion because I have never tried it.

    Anyway yer man gives a perfectly credible explanation for how they work:

    'I think that it's due to the special materials relaxing into the earth's local magnetic field'


    See? No mystery there, just special metals relaxing and improving the sound. Not in any way anything to do with imagining it. Not at all.

    A well respected UK audio reviewer once said that if all the screw heads in all the 13A plugs used were orientated horizontally, it resulted in better sound
