If you treat the source component first and the glare is reduced or mitigated why would you question the result? Tom

Wow! You certainly misinterpreted my post. I’m a major fan of tweaks. Just look at my discussion history for the past 20 years. I’m looking forward to trying Q45T - or - Furutech Nano.
Whenever somebody mentions ’reduced digital glare’, it means that they still have it. The goal should be to treat the root cause, not mitigate the symptoms. Ever since I cleaned up my power and installed good cabling, I haven’t had digital glare in years.
I have no idea what the deal is with deludedaudiophile. IMO, his credibility is zero.
So I purchased my PS Audio Lamda transport from Peter Israelson who until recently was a tech, builder and designer for High Fidelity Cables makers of the 1260 and Q45 contact enhancer..Spoke with Peter today about glare digital and otherwise and he had the same experience as me. On some music we would both reach for the remote in anticipation of the glare that we knew was fast approaching and turn the volume down. With the application of Nano Flo there was no glare.
I can post all the mods and tweeks this transport has been thru.. New choke power supply board with Nichicon Gold filter caps.with several film and foil bypass caps,.upgraded zener diodes, Vampire rca digital, new upgraded digital clock board, circuit boards mounted with brass standoffs and brass screws. CDM Pro9 transport and drawer treated with AVM coating, Star Sound CD Cirkulus tophat , cryo treated magnet instead of fuse, upgraded ac input..there is more likely. Oh it sits in the center of a custom Sistrum Sp5 rack that has brass rods instead of the usual stainless steel. These rods are drilled and filled with the same material mix I use in my cello endpins. The transport sounds best on the center shelf because of the increase in torsional rigidity. Found this out by moving the transport from top shelf on down. More stable center image along with better bass when in the middle. The rack is mechanically grounded to the concrete floor with 2.5 inch brass Audiopoints..The treated breaker box is 8 feet from my system and has The Gate mounted inside.. The breaker box is 35 feet from the ground mounted transformer outside. On the meter outside I treated it with the same mix of metals in paint that I applied to the interior breaker box whose metal door was removed because the music plays better when off. That's all about that. Tom
