    Default The newest craze in acoustic absorbtion!!!

    This must be the new fad in acoustic absorption. Take a good, hard look.



    Or is this a new way to store TP? Useless post, I know. I just figured that some of you might get a kick out of it. Some peoples' kids.....
    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    TP quality makes a difference. Hearing is believing. Charmin ultra-soft produces a wider sound stage than cheapy single-ply.

    Thats a great Idea. When listening to a very good emotional record you can use the TP to dry your eyes, or when you start adding up how much you have spent on your system you can do the same:D
    Please. Please contact me a ben62670 @ yahoo.com. Make sure to include who you are, and you are from Polk so I don't delete your email. Also I am now physically unable to work on any projects. If you need help let these guys know. There are many people who will help if you let them know where you are.
    Thanks

    Not new at all. In fact I've heard that further testing showed that it works best if it has been used.

    Make sure it's 2-ply, or second order harmonics will suffer.

    I thought the wallpaper in the background was a couple of mattresses at first.
