I had the pleasure of an audition of a Stein Music Harmonizer at my friends shop a couple of years ago. Walter Swanbon from Fedelis AV brought one to town and he was with a guy from Stein who knew how to set it up. I think Fidelis might be the distributor. I recall watching this guy get this thing set up and thinking to myself that this is about to be the biggest snake oil pitch in the history of audiophiledom. You know what though, I was shocked at what I heard. I think everyone in the room was. We all rotated through the chair that this was setup around. The way this system opened everything up was freaky. I won't pretend to be intelligent enough to understand why or how it does what it does, but it certainly was noticeable and to me in a good way. I'm not good at describing how things sound. I either love it or hate it. If you ever get the chance to audition one jump at it.
