Once you get them,Then what do you do? Just set them on the metal box of the component?
Yes, that’s exactly what you do. Pick a spot, plop it down, plop yourself down, and listen. Strain. To hear even the slightest difference. Which, remember, even something as simple as a phone book placed on top of a CD player will affect (usually improve) the sound. So the Shakti Stone being a mass with felt on the bottom is expected to make some small improvement even if only due to the slight mass damping effect.
It is when you think about it actually quite remarkable they have managed to make something so truly ineffective. I mean it does do something. Like I said it does make a very slight improvement when placed over the transport section of a CD player. But that is it. A ten dollar dive weight makes a bigger difference than one of these things. A freaking phone book!
Okay, nobody has a phone book any more. Use your imagination. Any book of decent size a couple inches thick will do. Don’t take my word for it. Try it and see. You have just out-performed a Shakti Stone!
Okay, just realized no one reads books any more. Dang. This getting old stuff is getting old. Okay so what do you have these days? Energy drinks! Put a big ol can of Red Bull on there. Or Fountain Foo Foo Water. Two pound bag of Organic Coffee. Whatever! Take the challenge, do your best, try and find something you can put on there that WON’T be better than a Shakti Stone! Go on! I dare you! I double-dog dare you!
