Completely new audio tweaks - different methods of audio enhancement.

In keeping with the new spirit of product announcements on the forums, I thought it would be apropos for NFS Audio to make the following proclamation:

I have, after thinking on audio and elemental physiology theory for nearly 30 years... managed to get myself into a situation where I have intentionally created what will likely be a watershed moment in audio reproduction, as applied to the ideas and understandings in audio and biosystems.

I did this..all in the name of better audio! Tunage, dudes!! It's all about the tunage!

Once again that old bugaboo I have always had to deal with, that paradigm shift in people's understanding of the human perception mechanism. It's rearing it's head again.

Point is, the name of the Company is NFS Audio, the new AUDIO company (I'm a partner). The old one, which I continue to not be associated with, is still 'NFS,' but we are still not housed in the National Fertilizer Secretariat of Sri Lanka (http://www.suedasien.info/links/1651.)

You will see a completely new type of audio tweak emerge in the next three weeks or less.

The methods of system enhancement will be completely different. The sound will be completely different. The sound will be, like, totally better!

For the larger part, our tweaks eliminate several audio conduction/processing issues. Which is why the tweaks will blow people's minds. This kind of phase coherence, threshold enhancement, room coupling, and sonic truth has never been heard before. Many of you, at any level of audio knowledge, or any level of any type of knowledge will have to completely re-address the idea of your knowledge. Even at the level of 30-40 years in the business, at any level of education and quality of gear, you will be gaining new knowledge. We are going to en-knowledge-ulate you.

The more you know about the physics of the subject, the more it is likely to make your socks roll up and down and make silly putty run out of your nose. So get ready to break out the physics books. This is going to get very, very interesting.

How often does a tweak get onto the cover of a magazine? This is likely to be on the cover of more than one. Maybe even Playboy, or that Nobel Prize Winner Magazine, just for Nobel Prize winners.

For those of you in the business, an old friend has decided that these tweaks make it unnecessary for him to re-join the ranks again! He's not getting back into the swing, just for this occasion. You've been missing him, but you won

Nuts to the audio.

I wanna know where he buys his tires. I want some for my car. Even tho' my pitiful shameful eurotrash car cannot hope to compete, at least I can bask in his stylish glow by having my junkmobile look like his, with those manly tires. You know, like a codpiece for my car.

Re: Completely new audio tweaks - different methods of audio enh

I sent a PM to KBK apologizing for my flippant style on this thread.

I would also like to publicly offer my apology and thank KBK for his graciousness in the face of my sad attempt at goofing on the theme of his own thread.

Now, about my car...

Wonder Woman is an old flame, and as we were riding in her invisisble plane one day, I mentioned how cool it would be to have a car like that!

Well, she came through, but people keep running into the car or cutting me off in traffic. It's almost as bad as being a motorcyclist! So, I'm putting it up on myrtlewood blocks until I can find a way to get paint to stick to it.

I was wondering how a Ford Mercury based car would work (apart from its city mileage).

He'll get no peanut from me. In fact, I suffer from peanut envy!

Did I ever tell you about the time the genie thought I wished for a 12 inch pianist?

Yes, KBK has been gracious in the face of devastating mockery that might undo a man less assured of his own excellence. However, your attempts are not "sad", they are perfect little works of art- like those miniature portraits on Antiques Roadshow- and the objects of your mimicry should be flattered, even grateful for the sharp point of your noble pen. (Sorry- I got carried away again.)

OMG - LMAO

How did I miss this fine threadie

I have one.... where ever you are one the planet you need to find the lines of force relating to the Earth's Magnetosphere for your region - then tilt your CD player to perfect 90 degrees adjacent to the lines of force - this will improve the stability with equal attraction on both sides of the CD improving the sound no end.

See if that gets on the cover of a mag ........netsosphere

Here's another favorite

The "Cable vibrator" to stop electrons from sinking idle at the bottom of your copper.

Tremble motors are placed at each end of you cables to shake them whilst you listen - this ensures that the electrons are dispersed liberally throughout the cable - see images...

and the improvement is amazing

and here is the diagram of a Cable Vibrator - easily made up from parts from any good retailer.

Re: Completely new audio tweaks - different methods of audio enh

Actually, it does play a part, the fields, that is.

When I was into severe modification of 9" color Gunned 3500x2500 Graphics Grade CRT projectors...I found that the electromagnetic/electrostatic considerations (ie, planetary weather, re the old earth-solar system relationship) affected the alignment of the CRT projector, minutely, and repetitively, according to astrological considerations. I say astrological, but another might say astronomic. Whatever, we are talking about planetary relationships to/with fields and /or one-another, regardless.

As for noticing it and comparing it to something, ie, flopping about and trying to find the source of the issue, it took a while. As for the projector itself, maybe about 3 people on the planet had ever taken a CRT projector to that level of perfection, so it's not something I'd expect the average researcher to ever run into. Repeat the test conditions and then consider the ramifications, please do not outright ridicule from a position of ignorance. As for repeating the test conditions, first you'd have to be enough of an expert within the aspects of re-executing a CRT projector on a level which, literally, less than 5 people have achieved, and then put in the time toward monitoring the situation. (In reality, I'm being generous, I only truly know of two people who have gone this far. One was Chris Stevens, and I. I may have -in the end- gone notably further than he did, I was doing custom cables, sources, and power supplies. However, he did more circuit work. I did lots of parts changes, mechanical work, optical work, and external connectivity work. After speaking with him, We did share some work with one another. I told him, "you take the high road (custom CRT projectors),and I'll take the low road (modifying digital projectors) and we'll meet in the middle." I stopped working on CRT projectors, and went digital, as CRT was an eventual dead end.)

In such a CRT projector, we are talking about displaying a 1080P pixel grid, at about 9 feet wide, with the ability to easily discern the dot on a small 'i', with perfect clarity, and to see if the R-G-B overlap of the guns was -perfect or not. Noting the issues and times, gave me a pattern of alignment change that I was having some difficulty in finding the source of. I took a stab at an idea of the source, and the proposed source fit the changes in alignment. Ie, planetary field considerations and the changes in said field.

The PC even had a totally wacked out custom power supply, with film caps,and a modified motherboard, in similar fashion. Oscon caps, etc. Same for the video card. The RGB wiring was custom terminated for loading perfection, on each end, with air dielectric cables, and hard wired into each end. Individual cable run impedance matching, on either end, was also done. I slowly zeroed in on the perfect matching on either end of a given single R-G-B cable, by alternately tuning each end. That kind of fanatical. Like serious, dude. The connectors were gone due to hardwiring, and so was the need or reasons to maintain a 75 ohm connectivity balance. So I used my own cable choices, and tuned that to the inherent impedance considerations of the remaining aggregate conductive pathways. What I was trying to do and succeeded in doing, was to create a single (unstepped) aggregate impdeance pathway for the modified RGB amplifier work on the ATI card, to the initial modified RGB input stage on the CRT projector. Besides every other fanatically modified area of the system!

It was with this set-up, that I sussed out that scaling images from DVD's to 1080P was a righteous thing, and it took about 2 years, overall, of attacks from the other forum members before it was accepted. Even though I was outlining all the reasons why, repeatedly. I had a ATI based video card, with the HTPC scaling core and could and did experiment with pixel by pixel scaling changes. The highly modified CRT projector (no inherent display grid!!) gave me a chance to isolate the scaling engine on it's own, and thus discern what exactly scaling does to a given digitally sourced and processed image.

Those issues related to the idea of motional framing and how that relates to how the eye sees, scaling from the original 1080P master, etc, etc. Then it became the accepted thing.

Now it is on every DVD player.

You are welcome.

Re: Completely new audio tweaks - different methods of audio enh

A number of manufacturers of CRT monitors explain how the Earth's magnetic field affects the performance of their monitors. IIRC monitors are also calibrated in relation to the hemisphere in which they will be used.

Now if I can only find the degauss button on my CD player...

The important point to take away, is that I could discern the 'level' of distortion, right in line with astrological alignments.

Re: Completely new audio tweaks - different methods of audio enh

Since "Fast Audio" is such a hot topic these days, I would like to see a study done using a particle accelerator.
That should be fast enough despite the fact that Nyquist CD audio is limited to 1/2 of the sample rate.

That's why I always place my amp uphill from my speakers.
No sinking electrons in my system.
All you losers with your amps sitting on the floor between your speakers. Especially those of you with SET amps trying to push those electrons uphill with only a couple of watts.
