|A dear audiophile friend gave me the Ayre CD tweak that Charlie Hanson humorously has entitled, Irraional But Efficacious!|
You set your system volume at a moderately low level, if you put at a very high level you run the risk of "smoking" your speakers and play track seven that lasts five minutes. A series of very powerful tone bursts at different frequences pulse through your entire system. It's recommended that you only use this tweak about twice a month.
Well, amazing results happened in my system:
1) Great increase of transparency/clarity.
2) The soundstage got bigger with more layering.
3) Macrodynamics/slam /jump improved.
I give great credit to both Charlie Hanson and George Cardas, who came up with this thing along time ago, for their total honesty about not really knowing how it works, hence the name Irrational But Efficacious! Unlike others who would come up with some secret mumbo-jumbo explanation and charge a ton of cash. This CD tweak only costs $20.00.
If any GON members have tried this CD tweak please share if your experience was as postive as mine and if you have not tried it I highly recommend you do.
