He is also mind fecked, just in a different way. He is under Marco's (enormous) shadow which effects all his decisions regarding people and forum behaviour. He needs to have some independent thought and THINK!!!

In terms of system he has created a system where he just plays around at the fringes where what is needed is a different approach - there is too much tech nonsense in his brain that he has next to no understanding of, yet he makes decisions as to what to try with it. Admittedly he uses his system and music to judge these items, but through what is a fatally flawed system. That problem would be solved very easily if he came out of Marco's shadow. He has tried odd bits of NVA even liked them but with no concept of system and synergy. It would take me a day and a car load to change his whole view of music. Now he is getting involved with Bigman, it is like the apprentice blind man leading the blind man, to where, certainly not to music.

Well as you say at least he is head and shoulders above these people drawn in by Coherents slurp and scam. All he (and anyone) needs is to listen with an open mind, and not let others screw that mind.

I think anyone gullible enough for one type of scam audio product is likely to be susceptible to others. Technical none savvy, believers of tree and sky fairies, etc etc.

There's a higher than usual % of god-botherers in the audio foo camp IME.

Let me get it out there that I'm sceptical but if folk hear it then fine. My biggest problem is the apparent magnitude of some of the improvements that are heard. The cumulative effect must be outstanding......

I nicked reference to this link from AA, so hope they don't mind. Some kind of explanation but prices are still very high to maintain some form of credibility out there in audiophile land...

Thing is, the very frequencies he's talking about are amply covered by ferrite clips (measurably so), but of course these are too damned cheap to be taken seriously by audiophiles after an expensive fix..

From the CAD brochure:

We generally don’t recommend connecting both signal ground of an audio component and mains earth together using the same Ground Control device. In this case, you would be directly connecting signal ground to earth which could make noise problems worse.

From the Coherent website:

We advise strongly against connecting both signal ground of an audio component and mains earth together using the same Ground Control device would be to suggest against this directly connecting signal ground to earth could produce an increase in the very noise results you are trying to counteract.

My advice:

When copying and pasting, make sure that after any editing you do the sentence still makes grammatical sense...
