While I do not have any problem with believing that speaker wire can make a difference in sound, and I have heard the improvement from upgrading my wire, I have had a hard time accepting the idea that reducing/eliminating vibrations from electronic equipment can make a difference.
Well, it can!!!
In my quest to help the economy I broke down and ordered 2 sets of Triple Points, and 1 set of Micro Point, brass footers from Mapleshade. So far, everything I have bought from them has resulted in an improvement, so I thought I would give the vibration control a try.
I isolated the CDP, DAC, and pre-amp, turned everything on, and was amazed at the improvement. The sound is so much clearer, articulate, and precise from both the CDP and the iPod/Wadia. They say vibration muddies the sound, and that is a good description. I am really impressed at the improvement from this tweak. Now I have to decide if it is worthwhile to add them to the amps.
The only drawback is now I have to buy some Brasso.
