Tice Clock owners are all going to say, "Told ya!!!!"
I actually have a bag of lizard bones I hang over my preamp , a Walrus uterus that I place in the corners of my listening room to draw unwanted energy from the sweetspot and I had corpse hair cross stitched into the lining of my subs for damping effects . Sadly , none of these Voodoo tweaks made any real improvements. The " clocks " however have made a startling change that even the jaded would at least ... have to admit makes a difference . This isnt the moment to digress on this accessory suffice to say I am for one , engaged with its effects at present. Maybe one should try a thing before dismissing a thing.
I agree with Nsgarch.
I don't believe that battery powered clock could provide any improvement in an audio system other than letting you know how long you've been listening.
There was a "plug in" clock sold by Tice some years ago. Tice also built power conditioning products, the most famous were the Power Block and Titan.
After all the overblown claims for the Tice clock, an engineer friend of mine took one apart and discovered it had a similar (but lesser) effect than Quiet Lines. Basically it was a clock with a cap and resistor that loaded the AC line, providing a small amount of noise reduction.
I find the Quiet Line filters to be more effective, especially if you use enough of them.
The real issue is does it work? How it works, if it does, could be scientific (physical) or psychological (metaphysics.) Science-based devices work better for me, because I can relate to that kind of "how." But I'm perfectly willing to accept that some folks operate on a different "plane" than I do, and to recognize that suggestion can be a very powerful thing indeed.
The dentures are in fact removable however she and I are , how do I put it .... currently inseperable . Also I used an ancient Kwang Fuue method of extraction in regards to the Walrus uterine removel technique whereby one violently and repeatedly forces said Walrus to watch uninterrupted viewings of Swept Away. The uterus removes itself. The ovaries stayed behind as re runs of Nip Tuck were scheduled for later in the evening. Finally , Grant , I will be over later with a plate of lasagna.

Well, Geoff, thought I'd let you know I just spent the afternoon and evening completely enraptured by the music my system is producing. Good job!" Michael, Sept 2005
I noticed the effect immediately after it was delivered by the postman and marveled. This despite the fact that the package had as yet not even been opened. Talk about being open to suggestion. ;-)
You know, first thing to come to mind was magic chips and jars of rocks. If it truly is THIS easy to make money.....
who knows? maybe I'll market audiophile beer- you know, 8 of these and you'll swear a whole system upgrade.You'll never want to go sober again...
Swampwalker, last time I laughed this much I was watching "Team America"
