I have used the DH discs for about 6 years. They are also very good with glass and improving focus. Their ceramic cones are also a good product IMO.

If I used these, would I take the penny off my headshell?  I don't want to introduce any disonant harmonics. ;)
I really enjoy listening to music.

You use a penny??? You must have a much better rig that me. I have to use a nickel. which is of course a big step up from the TT I had in high school that wouldn't track without a quarter.  :rofl:

I've tried something similar, and found it to absolutely make a difference/improvement  in the sound of my vinyl. But it wasn;t just a bit of brass.

I DIY'ed a version of the Walker Black Diamond tweak, and stuck a bit of clear quartz to the front of my cartridge with a small dab of crazy glue. Yes, I did a before - after - before - after test, at first when I tried it and then again about 2 months later. There was an absolute difference heard, and an improvement to my ears.

No, it is not simple because you have to realign things like your counterbalance and double check your azimuth and anti-skate.

Crystal energy rocks!    ;)

I am not surprised that it has an observable effect on such a delicate electrical signal as LOMC.

I worked at a metaphysical gemstone store in the late 80s. Besides meeting a large number of young, beautiful, idealistic and gullible women, I also saw and heard and experienced for myself of a lot of weird and wonderful things related to the presence of crystals and raw minerals.

I still have my collection of minerals I attracted during that time, and I carry various pieces of stones in my pocket for different special events. I drink fresh vegetable juice that is treated with tourmaline to keep it fresh. I dowse with a small clear quartz crystal pendulum. I have found various and sundry benefits from non-traditional uses of mineral gems.

Based on my experience with particular minerals' effects, I would recommend placing a very small piece of raw tourmaline wand with its striations parallel to a small signal wire, especially low voltage.

  Guys the phono thingies are $100 retail for two. As far as the HFTs are concerned three sets does the trick. Yes that would be $900 retail. We do not pay retail. So for me at under $600 i got room treatment and phono treatment.
    They are by design hemholtz resonators. The only issue with Teds' stuff is price. The affect after installation will easily cure that fear or dismay.
    BTW I DO NOT sell them. Group buy ??? I could set that up if enough are interested.

Dropped by a friends work place. They make custom tools and machinery for the mining industry. Alot of their machining (that was't computer operated) came off a U.S. WW2 battleship. Can't remember which one but the ships name is on all the heavy machinery. Apparently they fix on the go during WW2  :lol:

I've been quite curious about these but not likely to pop at full price.

If a group buy is possible, I'd be interested.
