Paul McGowan writes: Do you remember applying green paint to CD edges? Placing steel VPI bricks on top of equipment? Placing small pillows in each corner of the ceiling? Using a tape demagnetizer on CD’s? Pointing a static zap gun at LP’s before playing them? I do.
All these tweaks worked but I don’t use them any more.
Cleaning a record, using CleanWave on a Power Plant, adding diffusers to the room, using isolation bases – these I still do. What changes when something is all the rage and then is either forgotten or becomes part of the culture? I am actually unsure. Just to check and see if I was kidding myself back then, I demagnetized a CD before play – the difference was there.
So, maybe I am just lazy?
I think this is a subject worth pondering and discussing.
