Bring us you worst
Post snake oil
Listen to this as you look up retarded audiophile stuff.
Does anyone else remember the real horn loaded?
I am pleased that i share name with this guru.
That is not what I meant.
There's stupid audiophiles, just like every other kind of thing.
Beyond all the stupid shit ever proposed to improve audio quality, beyond all the excessively priced cables, the bullshit marketing doublespeak, there lies this gem which is still the craziest most off the wall "audiophile" item in history:
>a set of 4 adhesive-backed 3/4" blue dots that are attached to the walls of the listening room, one dot per wall
>The subconscious mind interacts with room boundaries, i.e., closed-in spaces, producing a claustrophobic reaction that interferes with and degrades the listener's sensory perception. It's like putting in a better set of interconnects.
>"night and day" results were obtained when a Tru Tone Duplex Cover was placed on the unused outlet located on the wall behind and between the speakers.
>Is it resonance control that's lowering the noise floor?
Ah coconuts. That guy started that site as a satire site- you couldn't actually buy the stuff.
But as the orders rolled in, and people actually were trying to buy the jokerocks he was 'selling', he started shipping them.
And as the money rolled in he probably quit his job and went full time selling joke items to idiots.
Look at the internet archive, they have some old versions of the site. And if you look at that you can see "Oh that's clearly satire".
obviously that guide's a bait, but the bose companion does sound quite nice. (I don't know about pricer/performance, it's probably in the shitter, but it does perform well sound-wise.)
Too old for most of /g/'s newfags.
Also, Pic Related gives Audiophiles fits. It's hilarious. Sony XB1000's. Maximum power handling of 3 Watts, with -70- mm drivers. Oh, and 160dbs of output capability.
Thats enough decibels to actually burst your eardrums.
And knowing someone with a pair, and an amp to power them, I can confirm, I literally cannot put them to max volume while wearing them. It actually becomes genuinely painful to listen to. At something like 60% possible input.
this is a whole new level of delusion
>I recently upped the RAM from 8GB stock Samsung to 16GB RAM and the sound went terrible.
>16GB RAM adds color, bloomy un-detailed bass, less defined soundstaged, less clear vocals and acoustic guitars.
Yeah. The bricks on the floor are apparently because you're supposed to have cables suspended. I literally cannot understand how the movement or vibration of a cable would have any affect on how electrons travel through it.
Many audiophiles also try to suspend their DACs etc, or suspend them on the smallest points possible.

Five minutes on the Head-Fi forum is always enough to make me want to claw my eyes out. It's amazing that people can be so delusional.
I'm not even baiting. These guys are in a mid-life crisis, with their children moved out, looking for a new hobby. And having earned enough money in their life they can afford it.
That new hobby of theirs is less costly than gambling or fishing or whatever old people do.
My stock Samsung 8GB has thousands of hours of high-res music play through it and sounds much much better than the brand new 16GB sticks.
You couldn't make this shit up, oh god
I'm not mad. I'm the one selling audiophile beads to idiots like you. The warmth and ambiance they provide to electronic signals is not for all music, but for music that makes you feel like you just wrapped in a blanket after a shower, then you'll want to have these beads around your audio cables to enhance the wavelengths.
They no longer make the original series
They have a "new" xb series, which are nothing like the original
I have the XB700s, not the 1000s, but they can take an exceptional amount of power
>diamond is the hardest thing out there
>it can isolate the sounds therefore better
>the frequencies also are not impure since the diamonds are perfect shapes
ask half a million for them and sell them for 10k.
yes you are on the right track, I am not even kidding. All we need now is some dumb picture with a crude diagram of diamond bits reflecting sounds and we can fool all of them.
Perhaps add some fakish theory on some fakeish article somewhere that gives them a hint that diamonds are special with sound.
Lets rake in millions of dollahs.
I am not exactly how audophiles expect their stuff to work with, but ugh, we could try the isolation angle, that diamond dust deflects and does magic audio things to audio (equalizes it because of its pure shape)
A cable lined with diamond dust from the inside. You cant just sell it on the outside though. That would just be a bag of diamond dust.
That's the joke.
It's a joke that people are actually buying.
The guy behind coconut audio is making crazy shit on purpose to see what he can get away with, and he has yet to sell something so stupid that no-one will buy it.
>Diamonds are well known to have good isolation properties because of their density. They also have a perfect form to equalize and produce clear cut sounds like you wouldnt believe.
>we in "give us all your money corp" combined for an industry first, the power of the diamond for the heavy needs of the audio community.
>each tiny diamond is hand crafted (its not) and will help you to achieve revolutionary new heights in audio performance (and/or lows)?
because you could probably make bigger margins if diamonds are involved. When people see that the cables use diamonds, they know that it will be expensive to produce, but they shall not know how exactly expensive it will be hahaha.
and the kickstarter page would be a bunch of infograms of giant pretty diamonds and black sound waves entering them and colliding of the corners so that they get in the middle, during the collision the sounds will become less black and instead have all kinds of different colors, in the middle there will be a small rainbowish sun.
a second picture will be of the evil black signal going through this cable and gradually becoming more colorful.
>You need at least 5 feet of this cable for your audio signal to become less evil
>because the diamonds need to work on it
>the longer cable you have, the better it will be
I can already smell the money in the air.
>that must have been to Todd
That was no woman?
And then that obvious change of voice. This is too good.
Audiophile market is about to collapse if this delivers what it promises for only 1600 euro. Let's see in Januari when it hits the shelves and everyone can test it.
Remember the name: "Devialet Phantom"
I think it's gonna be good although their advertising with buzzwords all around.
what if theyre right?
What if I've never experienced such sounds?
What if there truly is no limit to human hearing? That I can delve into the sonic senses forever!
What if I could be so close, so tender with the music, that I'm >L I T E R A L L Y sucking Elvis's dick?
>implying I would not properly research anything before buying it.
But if it actually delivers what it's promising it's the best bang for buck system you can get by far. So no I was not trolling. My hopes for one are quite high but I would never buy it before reading tons of reviews, talking with my friends who are knowledgeable in audio equipment and hearing it myself.
I hope you're joking. This thing is the real deal. It literally does bass implosions, thing is going to be amazing. The bass coming from this makes you feel like your at a rock concert.
Even the craziest audio gadgets and cables dont claim to have zero distortion. This thing has ZERO distortion. Its literally outputting perfectly from source. Anyone not getting this pressured sleep chamber is missing out big time.
