Schumann Resonance and it's effect on music

There is a new product out by Acoustic Revive that puts out the Earth's natural resonating frequency of 7.83Hz and claims to greatly enhance the musical experience.

Here are a few excerpts:

"The Acoustic Revive RR-77 is getting a great deal of accolades from even the most skeptical of tweakers. This device generates a signal at the approximate Schumann Resonance frequency of 7.83 Hz. The bottom line is- it works."

Effects of the Acoustic Revive RR-77

Audio equipment
"By generating the Schumann Resonance, there is an effect that it neutralizes electromagnetic waves generated from an audio equipment and external harmful radio waves. So interference of electromagnetic waves and radio waves that exist among equipments is disappeared, it becomes possible to reproduce the music clearer, the S/N ratio is improved higher and the distortion is reduced."

Listening room
"Also, by generating the Schumann Resonance, there is an effect that it neutralizes harmful standing waves. And it has the feature of improving the viscosity of the air in the listening room. Therefore, you can reproduce the excellent music, the sound is improved clearly audible, and the depth of the sound image is increased dramatically."

"It is established medically that generating the Schumann resonance activates the cellular immunity. And it is said that the Schumann resonance produces the good relaxation effects, and the attentiveness is raised greatly. So you can hear the details of the sounds that could not be heard before."

How to use

"The Acoustic Revive RR-77 never makes physical contact with your audio devices. When you connect the RR-77 to the wall receptacle with the provided AC adapter, you simply set the RR-77 at a height of at least 1m-50cm in your room. If the height of the RR-77 is less than 1m50cm, effects become muted."

Can anyone shed some light on this? The Earth's electromagnetic field is certainly being affected by human technology and in all probability is having enormous effects on our health and climate.

Any opinions?

Ya, sure, everyone has opinions. I have no opinions on the device itself or its ability to improve reproduction of music. I do have opinions regarding some of the statements you quoted above that at first glance appear ridiculous.
For instance, the only way that I know of to change the viscosity of a substance is to alter its temperature, or in the case of a mixture such as air, the composition of the mixture. I doubt this device does either one of those things. What exactly constitutes an improvement in viscosity, an increase or decrease?
As for the increase in cellular immunity that has been medically established, I like to see a reference to the clinical study supporting such a conclusion.
Mootsdude, you are absolutely right. Technology has an enormous effect on our health. The effect is that we are living longer, staying healthier, and enjoying a higher quality of life than at any time in the history of the human race. OK, I'm done with this soapbox. Who's next?
Is Machina Dynamica behind this tweak?

The explanations sound like snake oil to me. It may in fact work, but I do note that too loud a signal at that frequency should make you sick to your stomach and could even do you harm; and if it's set too low, since it's subsonic, you might not be able to tell if it's even doing anything. After reading about this topic in Wickopedia, I'd also be worried that my house would be struck by lightning due to this device (well, maybe I'm taking some liberties, but no more than they seem to be in their claims)!!

I'm curious--how much are they charging for this thing?
Rprince, I don’t think MD is behind this, but this device clearly targets the same market segment. Enough said.

I am waiting for an equipment rack that rotates precisely 180 degrees out of phase with the earth's rotation.
"Also, by generating the Schumann Resonance, there is an effect that it neutralizes harmful standing waves."

This part of the explanation, I might add in fairness, might have a small grain of substance to it, though not much and actually the device could be making the standing wave problem worse. I recall a device called the Phantom Acoustics Shadow, which was an active device almost like a cylindrical subwoofer which was put into the corners of rooms to cancel (at least partially) standing waves. It used a pair of microphones that converted sound waves to electrical energy, phase inverted it, amplified the signal and sent it to transducers in the Shadow, which then produced an out-of-phase output at the excessive bass frequencies that cancelled or reduced the excess bass energy. That device, which according to Bob Harley's review was developed by Nelson Pass, had some science behind it, at least. If you're interested in it, see This Acoustic Revive device does not state whether the signal it sends out is phase inverted, nor does it seem to address any frequencies other than the one mentioned (or, if you follow up with the Wickopedia article, certain others, but none of which may match the room's standing wave frequencies).
You can probably just get one and demo it for yourself as opposed to speculation. I know "tweek geek" will probably let you do this.

Let us know what your impressions are. Could turn out to be the newest "hot" thing, after microwaves of course.
VH Audio carries the Acoustic Revive RR-77. All of the cables I've purchased from Chris have been outstanding. I'd be surprised to find that he's selling a product targeted at the snake oil crowd. The link from his website that further explains Schumann Resonance is fascinating and apparently widely accepted and proven through scientific research, which by no means is proof of the product's effectiveness.
