Akiko Audio tuning sticks?


Has anyone tried any of these tuning sticks and if so, could you explain the components/gear they were put on and your conclusions...in detail if possible....

Your time and conclusions are greatly appreciated....

Bacardi, I have tried them all. Including the new gold II.
The only one I kept was the RCA version.
I found that using that one on my DSpeaker unit (just for my subwoofers)that it did add a little bit of tonal tightening to the subwoofer.
All of the others resulted in either no change or change that didn't impress me.
I used chop sticks sounded great and you can have sushi too.
Here comes some more sonic alchemy. Always lots of fun....
Best tweak I have ever used.I would agree with all the reviews,awesome improvements across the board.If they do not make an improvement in your system, just send them back.

In my system the major improvement is a huge drop in the noise floor,and this is with a Shunyata hydra conditioner and FeSi-1000 passive noise isolating material ac cables, plus, an Edge battery line amp. A great product,keepers for sure. Why Ozzy's system is not compatable is beyond me,but again,you have the option of returning if not happy.Good luck...
I keep nunchucks under my pillow but haven't tried them in my system yet.
Bacardi,
I have the AC Tuning Stick and it is plugged into my Isoclean 80A3.
It actually does have an effect on the bass which becomes slightly tighter, a smidgen more resonate. It also has made the soundstage a bit more three dimensional. Vocals have moved forward. Subtle all, but noticeable. Because it's in the power block, it's very easy to plug in and out and immediately note any differences. I know there is much debate on these sort of things and many will discount the efficacy and discount the "stick" as mumbo jumbo. My only answer to these comments is to try it. It's not much money compared to all the other tweaks out there. And if you don't like it, send it back for a refund. Kind of a no-brainer. Trust your ears.
I may consider the AC tuning stick on my empty maestro outlet that my isotek Aquarius is plugged into. Papermill is absolutely correct that the 15 day money back garauntee will be honored if I choose to return it is a no-brainer. Thx all for your input....
@Aolmrd1241, which did you try in your system?
Bacardi,I am using the ac stick plugged into a empty outlet in my dedicated ac line,which in turn,is feeding my hydra eight. I also have two universal sticks,one each,strapped to my speaker cables,as close as possible,to the binding posts of my speaker terminals. Also,I have a xlr stick plugged into the rear my CD player. I first tried the ac stick plugged into one of my hydra's empty outlets,but with some critical listening,I felt it was much better sounding plugged into the dedicated outlet though...Much more organic sounding in that position... Each addition of the subsequent sticks brought about much more inner detail and bass slam. I'm hooked on the sticks...
Aolmrd1241, thx for your conclusions, I am waiting for some analogue/digital shorties to plug my unused connectors to. I will try an AC stick to my maestro receptacle. My Isotek Aquarius conditioner is connected to one of the receptacles in the Maestro. The other I will try the AC-stick. I have everything plugged into the Isotek but I have one outlet still open. I could try the AC in that too and see which is the most beneficial. What do you think?
Bacardi,yeah,I would start with the ac stick and try it in both your open ac wall outlet and your empty Isotech outlet and let your ears guide you to which position is more to your taste. I think either way,you will be pleasantly surprised...
Aolmrd1241, thx for the advice, I'll try the empty Maestro top outlet first then the empty Isotek outlet and see which is has a more positive effect.
Cool,let me know what you think...
I have one in my Shunyata and it did make an improvement.
