This site has no circle for the far out/outer space zone tweaks.
(maybe for a good reason?)
Anyway, here is my latest foolishness...
On another site plumb/chuck full of strange and crazy tweaks One of them (costing $599) seemed to be something like a fridge magnet... with added mojo of unknown provenance... Claims of magic abound. Action at a distance with no known mechanism???(they said the magnet stuff had no part in the magic. Yeah, sure....)
I thought, Geesh, I can make that.
So I bought two big fridge magnet white sheets shiny white one side, magnet sheet on other.
I know other stuff like the famous/infamous VPI brick sucks up stray waves.. And magnets bend stray waves... Crystals do something.
Anyway, I tried on one the top of a five disc changer. Not good. not good. Then I thought maybe too strong, plus directly sticking to the steel... not good. (the player went insane briefly when I pulled it off while playing...
So then I placed one sheet under a five disk changer. on the shelf, magnet down (on glass shelf) changer feet on magnet pad white stuff. So about 1/2 inch from bottom of changer.
Geesh, it is doing good. Sound is clearer. (realize this bought of eBay $40 used changer is playing through a $7000 Marantz SA-10.. no slouch. but still $40 changer!) I placed one under the SPDIF RCA out changer. and the other pad under the Toslink changer.)
Then I took some of the piles of small quartz crystals in baggies I keep for tweak emergencies,!! (treated with automotive dielelctric grease) and placed one on top of magnet pad under transformer of disk changer. and one under the main group of big chips on board inside changer.
?? not sure of much added. Somewhat sketchy. But does seem to be better midrange body... (really, You doubt me???
However the fact of the magnet improvement. Just mentioning crystals to show I'M trying...genetic frig magnet pad improving the sound a little for $20.
And I order a few more. To try under the amp, the preamp another preamp...
you may even have one on the fridge you can play with for free.
Main suggestion. near but not touching seems to be better...
I have not experimented with specific other distances than the 1/2 inch away. So that is also up in the air.
