Coconut-audio VibraPortal stone of clarity

Checkout this item up for bid:

http://cgi.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/auc.pl?accsrack&1288669870&1288059046

This device is to be placed on top of the chassis which will transform resonances into friction and heat.

Combining piezoelectricity, static electricity and natural ore of various kinds gives the most neutral and efficient vibration control unit ever developed.

Multiple electrostatic vacuum sealed pockets are surrounding dry ore of various types with different mixtures of Quartz crystals. Together they form an electric grid within the unit which gives a drier environment and enables higher friction to be generated between the particles over a shorter time. The resonance reduction from the audio system is quicker and more efficient because a smaller unit can be built.

I have tried Solid-tech Feet of Silence, Rack of Silence, Clear Audio Magix magnetic levitation feet. They all colored the sound. Then I combined them together and used 10 Feet of Silence with 10 Magix on top of them, it got better. Then I added 100 lbs of weight on top and I got improvements in microdetail, resolution and blackness. They didn't do anything to reduce the vibrations, they just damped it. The VibraPortal gives higher performance without coloring the sound and it weighs only 0.5 lbs.

These crystal based devices seem to be cropping up with some regularity. A rather similar device to the one you mentioned is the new Acoustic Revive TB 38. I won't even mention the Shakti Stone (gosh, has it really been around more than 15 years?) as that seems a little too obvious.

I noticed that too Geoff. And yes, when I first saw that black stone, the Shakti stone immediately came to mind.

Thats alot of Quartz to use for power strip isolation

Well, if he wants to use that thing as a sex aid that's his business. I do wonder though which end goes where.
Me, I think all this tweaking nonsense can be solved in a much simpler and less obtrusive manner. Pay your local witch/warlock to annually cast a 'golden ear spell' on all your audio gear. Probably work out a lot cheaper, and I'm sure just as effective, as all those stones, bits of wood, bowls, cable crutches etc.

I like Patrick.

He used to come here.

He buys Valhalla cables and dissects them for parts.

That can't be him in the picture, though. He'd never remove his tinfoil covering.

That pic must be a hoax.

I guess he's an heir to the Tarot Card fortune.

I like these better than Patricks stone of clarity. Hang these on your inputs to really give your system some balls and in assorted colors.

j_j needs a pair..

I got a set of the flesh toned fuzzy ones...with a variable wrinkle pattern to accomodate potential standing waves. No complaints about the sound of the Hi Fi when I pull those babies out!
