    Question Tweek of the day

    Would you pay $100 (or more) for a bottle of small stones?

    Increased Dynamics? Holographic Soundstage?

    I lost my marbles and now they are selling for $100. I like to tweak but that is a little far out even for me.

    Did you read the White paper in the posting that explained the "science" behind the Brilliant Stones?

    Truly far out...... But still funny none the less

    I did move all my dust bunnies to the corners of my room and the soundstage is now more open. Depth of soundstage has also increased. I remember in college that old pizza boxes and foam Big Mac containers helped a room be less reflective.
