20 Ridiculous Audiophile Products. David Stark has compiled a list of audiophile products which claim to improve your Hi-Fidelity listening experience beyond the bounds of normal credibility. The sad thing is he’s received hate mail because of it. Tsk. I think my favourite is the Silver Rock Volume Control which costs $6,820.00. Wow! Just wow! [Via the Museum of Hoaxes]
My offering is the Ultra Purifier Block, an 8–way power socket block which at £550.00 redefines the whole meaning of ‘clean electricity’.
In terms of how this affects the sound – they go on explain you should expect a much improved image focus, a reduced level of ‘hash’ around the sound and improved precision of instruments.
