I can't help thinking that the bees wax in those fuses is far too yellow/orange looking.   In fact it looks more like ear wax.

For the ultimate compatibility with your biological audio system.

Wait, the Cable Cooker says it can do capacitors. So I can take my really old crusty and dead tube type paper and electrolytic capacitors and reform them? What do want the bet that the Cable Cooker would be cooked? >:D

A 15-day free trial? Hmmm. Let's see what happens when the fuse has to, you know, do its primary job, which is to open in the event of a mains short ...

I didn't dig too deep because I could feel my brain overloading with all the bullshit but what I didn't see were any claims that the fuses complied with the relevant safety standards...

I wonder if there's a market for homeopathic fuses, ylanylang for relaxing music, oil of evening primrose tincture for fans of music over 60 years old, Patchouli oil for music from the 60s and 70s...

(can't think of ylangylang without Billy Connolly, Let me through, I'm an aromatherapist popping into my head)

They should dig the wax out of their ears first.

Million dollar audiophool idea not explored yet: High-end cotton swabs pre-moistened with nanotechnology biotech solvent. $150 for a sachet of three. Of course, they will certify that the cotton was harvested by discerning biologists and spun using a "relaxed" Susan. Trial offer for Audiogoon members, only $125 for the first fifteen orders.

It's a fantastic idea but I think it'd be far more fun to sell them pre-impregnated cotton buds, they could choose to condition their ears with the ear wax of famous and highly 'respected' audiofools so they experience the same acoustic delights as their 'heroes'

The swab shafts are carefully arranged and precisely spaced on either side of a hollow inner core in order to provide a perfect mechanical interface along the length of the swab. The meticulous layout of the gold-pressed cotton buds minimizes skin effect and reduces damping, while the meticulously formulated solvents reduce internal microphony. These swabs can be 'pre-charged' before use by moving them back and forth inside our ferrite ring, included with our compliments with your first purchase.

Do it! Hopefully, they'll all stab their eardrums out with them and we won't have to worry about them anymore. >:D

I've been listening to supposedly some of the finest speakers that currently exist. These include b&w 800 Series, revel high end, vivid audio, Psi audio and kef blades.
They must have excellent hearing and I wonder if they would submit themselves to hearing tests to confirm how good their hearing is to notice the difference.

I think one because they are probably a centimetre from your ear drum and two they are blasting may100 db as well and maybe they have damaged your eardrums so much that you now can't differentiate good from bad. Them earbuds'll do it every time.


Somewhere up the thread and their hearing is going to or on Dire Straits:

Elizabeth,  I totally agree. I have noticed many recordings are crap. So I set up playlist of music that sounds the best to me. Dire straits,  Diana krall and quite a few others.

So it is the recordings that are crap and not your ears?

Actually had a look at that forum. Comedy gold in there. You could troll them so easily.

I did post something on Audiogoon but got no response:

Has anybody tried the Sony High Quarity Sound microSDXC memory card?

I see them going on Ebay and Amazon and want to know if anyone here has brought one and tried it.

I am looking to make my sound sound better with my MP3 players and car audio.

So please let me know your thoughts.

It was to do with the EEVblog #719 - Sony Low Noise Audiophile SDXC Memory Card.

Surprised not to see them talking about it and I'd though they would go crazy over mentioning it but it was a disappointment.

After I read that I suffered from a fit of laughter and nearly choked on it.

I know my Audiogoon thread is some weeks old and still no reply but that comment is one of best comments ever.
Wouldn't surprise me if they are still polishing their cables with Beeswax.

I know a good marketing brand name you can use to make and sell things to the Audiogoons and it is called Phools Gold.
But no gold in it.

Have to mention this year's RSGB April fools. Having a bit of a stab at the idea here as well I think. They added this to their store and advertised it in Radcom:



Brown with glitter. No coincidence I suspect!  :-DD

Comes precooked for those who don't own an oven.

You can offer them in casings made out of marbles as they could do with a few.

That's copperslip, sadly it's probably not  OFC, nor will it have been treated cryogenically so unless you store the pot on acutely aligned obsidian pyramids it will make your SWARRRR worse, not better and may lead to phasic misalignment on LSB.

True, but the effect can be offset by implantation of de-nuetralized silver and then coated with phosphoric-implanted and clean-room prepared platinum. This procedure should be performed in a Zero-gravity area for best results, although it may yield an increase in performance without this step.

I made these 10awg speaker wires the other day, may have $13 in parts total per cable pair in them.  I bet if I spent more money they would sound better  |O
