Stupid audiophile tricks, part 2
While we’re making fun of audiophiles - Stereophile magazine recently held a survey of the strangest tweaks that its readers have used in their hi-fi systems. This was by far the strangest: “I tried to use fresh vegetables such as carrots and potatoes as isolators under gear’s feet. The rational behind it is that the organic live cells absorbing vibration in “organic” way. It worked. However, two critical things: 1) I have to cut fresh carrots every time before serious listening, it only lasts two hours or so. 2) Make sure each cut has same heights and is flat on both sides, use certain kitchen tool if you have” You can’t make this stuff up.
