How does one get their paws on a magnetic tape bulk eraser. Is this a one time shot or do you
need to redo every so often? Guess I could just send the 400+ cds to you Dave and when could
ya get back to me?

Ripping the CD to a data file solves any real or imagined magnetic problems, static problems, reflective problems, vibration problems, disc error correction, laser diffraction, etc, etc. Leave the physical and all it's problems behind. :)

Reducing jitter and maximizing sample rate offer greater improvement than treating a CD.

Don’t doubt that at all as to jitter and sampling rate. It would be an interesting experiment to use the devices to correct magnetism, static, diffraction, etc and then immediately rip to a data file.  Then compare the CD to the data file. I’ve never done it.

   You who have great ears WILL appreciate the sonic improvement. Shuman Resonaters work. As I said good enough for Herbie Hancock good enough to try.
 BTW guys for static nothing more effective than the Mapleshade device. Circa $35.

Nick

I'm not sure there is a whole lot of detail to it. Magnetic fields on the disc can cause a "bend" in the laser light path whick can result in the reflected light not missing the photo sensor and certain bits not being read properly. If the magnetic field was static it would not be a problem as the photo cell could be adjusted to compensate for the4 bend, but since the discs is spinning, that means the magnetic field is moving around and the displacement from the intended laser path out be random in nature causing data errors.

Nick, using this device accomplishes the same thing as the Bedini Ultraclarifier.just not automatically as you would need to hold down the power button on the demag unit and move it around by hand.

And if you do use one of these devices be sure that it is always moving while it is on and move it at least an arm's length away from the CD before letting go og the power button t the sudden collapse of the magnetic field will re-magnetize the disc (or at least that is how it worked when we bulk erased reel to reel tapes when  I worked at the radio station.

   Doug lots of alternatives out there. The key is the device it works as advertised. If the less expensive ones have the same generation output no matter how cheap it will work.

Doug,
The link about the Telos diffuser and mention of alpha waves made me recall an incident from 25 years ago. At that time, I had severely injured a hip muscle and was constantly in a lot of pain. I had a dance partner at the time named Isabel who years before had been at UCLA and was involved in a study about pain control. Over the phone one time, she walked me through a sequence of mind relaxation and uttering the yoga phrase “om” repeatedly. Doing exactly what she said put me in a state of mental and physical relaxation and the pain ceased. I asked how this was possible and she said the study found that producing alpha waves somehow caused a body frequency response less than 20hz? and below that point the body could no longer feel pain.
As I only ran into her at dance functions occasionally, I lost track of her, but was able to recall, as best I could, this incident of so many years ago

Thanks, Tom. It appears error correction, or actually lack of absolute error correction,  may be the culprit. My CDs are on a data file, but there are some new ones I need to rip. So my thinking is if some of these gizmos work, why not use them before ripping to possibly get a better sounding permanent result. Maybe I have a demagnifier and antistatic device in an old musty audio box in the garage. Gotta check.....

  After living with the RR-888 for a couple of weeks now I can now appreciate what they offer. The recording enviorment of the recording comes though in spades. The decay of harmonics has expanded to my listening chair. Just fills the dam room. I can feel the sound now. Amazing. It is when you unplug it the effect just goes away.
Doug has supplied a bunch of choices to choose from. BTW two make it even better. A no brainer for any system
Besides the sonic benefit I just feel better. More relaxed with no sleeping issues.
One does not need a high end system to hear the improvements which makes it appeasing. I'm hooked, one would have to rip it from my dead cold hands.
