New Tweak --- Its Fantastic
No it’s nothing like ProGold, except that both improve the sound in different ways. ProGold is great (I used it for decades), but it’s effect is mild compared to TC’s hyper-intense.ProGold fully applied across all connections might take a hypothet... 
New Tweak --- Its Fantastic
Glad you’re liking it sgordon1. Don’t forget that it’s very conductive, and do consider insulation for certain cable applications. Clear shrink tubing? 
What’s your vote for the most ridiculous, overpriced, and useless tweak?
It may be amusing to tear down and poke fun at weird products. But if it’s done to a genuinely great product out of ignorance, then it’s more destructive than fun. Is it any wonder that  someone with actual experience using such a product may have... 
What’s your vote for the most ridiculous, overpriced, and useless tweak?
I have the Furutech demaganetizer (demag alpha). Anyone who listens to LPs or 45s, who doesn’t use one (or something equivalent) is only hearing maximum 90-95 percent of what’s on their records (varies per record). Subtract another 5% if you don’t... 
Most useful tweaks that are sensible and really make a noticeable improvement
Cryogenics works, at least on metals. Here’s detailed research showing exactly how it profoundly changes metallic grain structurehttps://www.researchgate.net/publication/257142195_Cryogenic_Processing_of_Materials_for_Enhanced_Pr... 
New vinyl quality....
Re new vinyl - apart from the pressing quality control considerations, I find it fundamentally problematic that most new vinyl is pressed from digital masters. Even considering the expense, I much prefer to buy original pressings from the late '50... 
New vinyl quality....
It’s not grounded. The base is purely a weight for balance and convenience. It’s overpriced considering you can buy the brush itself for quite cheap and mount it on your own arm. But I’m not sure if the cheap brush is actually the same (Thunderon)... 
New vinyl quality....
To millercarbon - possibly a third way is to use a vinyl demagnetizer. I recently bought the Furutech demag alpha. Every record I play gets the treatment. If I could describe the effect it would be "more relaxed" sounding after treatment. But ther... 
What’s your vote for the most ridiculous, overpriced, and useless tweak?
To quote from the PWB site"...what you can do is to ‘treat’ the cables, wires, components, equipment and listening environment to give them different ‘energy patterns’ which we (human beings) are able to interpret as ‘friendly’., ‘acceptable’., ‘r... 
What’s your vote for the most ridiculous, overpriced, and useless tweak?
Re - the PWB red pen. This tweek wouldn't work for me at all. The term "Past" is not dominated by all that is "black evil and horrible". For me, it's where all the best recorded music exists. The "Present" is black evil and horrible.

Perfect Path Tecnologies ‘The Gate’
As a new-ish customer of Perfect Path, I would like to thank Frank for his steadfast and truthful enthusiasm for the PPT products. If I had listened to wilfully ignorant posts such as fsonicsmith, I would never have placed my initial order. I almo... 
What brand was better than it is today?
Koss - I remember the days in the early 1970s, driving my ESP-9 electrostatic headphones with a Crown DC-300 amp. I don't know if I've ever heard sound quite like that since. Certainly not from the current offerings of Koss.Also I remember wanderi... 
What’s your vote for the most ridiculous, overpriced, and useless tweak?
I agree with Frank. But first coat the inside with fo.Q tape and then apply the Total Contact onto the fo.Q tape. I found that to be even better, and it’s easily removable if you move out of the house. My main wall duplex outlet has SR graphene tr... 
What’s your vote for the most ridiculous, overpriced, and useless tweak?
Piezoelectric wall outlet covers work and they work extremely well. You can test this yourself with fo.Q tape, stuck onto the outside of a regular outlet cover. A cheap way to re-arrange your thinking.
