+1 Photon. A slightly different example. Manipulating the atomic structure can be done naturally; Chrysler used to, maybe still does, sets their engine blocks out for a year to relieve stresses, before machining.cheerssteve
Yeah, it was something about the rusting acting as case hardening I think.
As to the prior comment about cryo treatment being inadvisable for springs, many in the automotive industry believe otherwise. Engine valve springs are routinely cryogenically treated in pretty much every type of high performance engine building these days; F1, NASCAR, etc. Longevity increases of several hundred percent are reported depending on the metallurgy of the springs.
OK so I got the GTX D Rhodium NCF’s.More on the downside, the treble has become "silvery" with a bit of hardness and brightness. There is more extension but the sound doesn’t seem like it has opened up yet and still sounds etched and shut in.I do hope the treble hardness and brightness goes away. How long does this take?
It does go away. it takes a long time to go away. (in relation to 5 hours.)Actually it can go away and then come back. then go away again. As others have reported.Once the Rhodium is broken in, the majority of folks say it is the best.I agree. And have actually swapped more Rhodium in, taking out gold.
I'm curious as some time has gone by... any updates?
I was amazed several years back when I upgraded outlets to the GTX-D rhodiums one at a time. the benefits are real.
If you are hesitant about trying them out, all I can say is that in my system, the Rhodium NCF balances out quite nicely after burn in. It is not as warm sounding as the Gold but is smooth, with an extended yet non fatiguing treble. I can say I prefer it to the Gold. What you have read here in this posts by others are pretty true to form. You just need to put up with the painful burn in process, knowing that you will be rewarded in the end, if your system is similar to mine.I have my power strip with preamp and all sources going to the Rhodium NCF. I still prefer the power amp to the Maestro for the added body and fullness that imparts.
