I think there might be some acoustic truth in this. The things you stick on with blue tac are just a cavity machined in a short piece of metal rod. They could well break up standing waves so you hear a 'difference'. The level 1,2,3,4 is just bullshit to sell you more boxes but it would stand to reason that more of them have a bigger acoustic affect. I'm sure these could be made for pence. How the active device would work I haven't a clue!

Standing waves in music really aren't a problem, for a standing wave to exist it has to be excited, once the excitation is removed the standing wave disappears too. A vanishingly small number of musical notes are sustained long enough, at an appropriate frequency, for a standing wave to develop in a domestic environment. Additionally, the amplitude of a wave in a domestic listening room is such that even if a standing wave were generated it would not be sustained. Anything sold to solve the problem of standing waves is snake oil.

Not expensive but certainly a slurping activity.

What could be more simple for a user to make adjustments to a Rega TT given all the information on-line. More likely make it worse transporting to and from dealer, Especially as it is not advisable to attach the arm weight which they offer to adjust.

Something that will take 10 minutes and they likely used to do for just the cost of any parts needed. And you wait 2 weeks - though that is probably the precursor to offering an 'express' service at £75...
