I couldn’t believe what I was hearing: greater transparency, improved dynamics and quieter backgrounds. All this from tiny acrylic saw-horses placed beneath my power and speaker cables!

Double blind tests may be a really good thing if a company wants to confirm the veracity of a new type of aspirin, for instance. When it comes, however, to audiophile grade components I cannot see how they are any more than a waste of time.

Pretty safe to say that I wouldn’t have made it through Start of Term this year at the college without repeated doses of Brutal Russian Baby Yoga on my lunch breaks.
